Make table field descriptions appear in status bar

Using Office 2003 and Windows XP;

When building a table, normally the info entered into the description field 
will show in the status bar when the bound control is active.

For one of my forms, this appears to be turned off. How can I restore this?

Thanks much in advance.

The only reason the field description appears is because you
dragged the field from the Field List to the form to create
the text box (or a wizard did it for you).  If the field in
the table has a description, the above will automatically
set the text box's StatusBarText property to the field
description.  If the field did not have a description at
that time or you created the text box using the tool box
button, then the status bar text will be empty unitl you set
it to something.

I think you should open the form in design view, select the
text box, and either Copy/Paste the table field's
description or just type what you want to see in the status

Stacking data from within a series within a bar chart
Hi there, For a stacked bar chart (not the 100% stacked bar chart), is there a way to stack the data within a series and make each series a different bar within the bar chart, instead of vice versa which appears to be the Excel default (e.g. In Excel, the highlighted values for a series become separate bars, and each subsequent series is stacked upon this preceding series dependent upon the order of the highlighted values)? If not, can I move around my bars so that some are more adjacent to particular bars and not so close to others? If this isn't clear, I've tried to specify ...

Reversing name values in a field
Hi, I have a field called CustomerName that has values that are last name, first name. So there is a value of Smith, John which is John Smith.

link to the exchange table is missing
We have had several transactions; receiving and AP apply batches (and possibly others) in which the link to the exchange table is missing (in receivings new transactions cannot be saved as the exchange rate can't be found).

Merging two tables
I have two tables in Access, and want to link each of them to a single table. If I use the File, Get External Data, Link Tables option, it creates two tables that are each linked to a single table. One way of solving this is to do as above, and then merge the two linked tables. How do I merge tables? Do the two tables have the same structure (fields and data types)? If so, you could use an append query to append one table's records to the other.
