Automatically set the data type as date for a Make Table Query
I have a make table query that I run daily. One of the fields of the query
is a date field. The source table for the query treats the information as a
text string in a date format that is not recognized by access. I have
created formula that parses the string to put it into standard "mm/dd/yy"
format. However, when I run the make table query it treats the date field as
text. This is a problem because I use a form to hold the criteria for a
query that I run on the new table. In order to get the query to work, I have
to manually set the data type to short date. This will ...Compare values in columns

I am currently working upon a database which is being used to produce pricing

product is placed into different sections which relates to its main function,
be it electrial or machineary.
I am hoping to have a report which will allow me to show all quoted products
under the sections, but have the unquoted products for the sections as one

I am trying to change a free text field to a drop down menu in my
current database, that already has data entered for this particular
field, in order to avoid multiple versions of the same organization
that are just typed in differently.
I'm assuming that I'll need to recode the different versions of an
entry to make them uniform but after that, I'm unsure how to proceed
so I won't lose any data. Is this possible or will I need to delete
the field, recreate it as a drop down and then re-enter the data?

I have a number of formulas that are displaying the result using the value
that is displayed in a referenced cell rather than what was actually input.
For example, if my formula in cell A1 is B1*C1 and my value in C1 is .075 and
the cell is formatted to display a percentage with no decimal places my
formula in B1 uses 8% instead of 7.5%. How can I address this across the
entire workbook rather than having to change the format in each of the
necessary cells. Thanks for your help.
What formula do you have in B1?

Someone sent me an Excel document where each of the cells in I1:I312 are
combo boxes. When you click off of those cells, the down arrow
disappears. The list for the combo boxes are cells AA1 and AB1 (AA1 is
New and AB1 is Existing). Please explain how this was done? Also, can
you please tell me if it is possible to make New and Existing autocorrect
entries. So even though the choices are New and Existing, if you hit N,
New appears, and if you hit E, Existing appears. Thanks!!

When some cells of the data series have #N/A values returned by formulas,
the corresponding chart fails.
But if the #N/A values are manually entered into those same cells, the chart
works fine !!
To my understanding, Excel Charts treat cells with #N/A values as empty
cells, so one may select the relevant chart option to "leave gaps", which is
With this apparent different interpretation (by Excel Chart) of the same

Save the distribution list as a text file and then import
the text file either into excel or back into outlook in
the contacts folder. From there, you can either drag the
lists' member information into a message or print out the
list. I discovered this solution when trying to automate
the creation of a separate contact card for each member in
the list. By saving the list as a text file and then
importing the file into my contacts folder, I was able to
create separate cards for every member of the list.

of the form which the user selects the dealer from and then clicks a button
which looks for first record without dealer allocated and updates the value
of combo1 to the value of combo2. This would then be enclosed in a Do Loop
for specified number of records.
