Timer for Queries?
Does anyone know of a macro or add-on that I could use as a simple timer for
queries? I don't like to use the CPU time in the Task Manager because of
it's inaccuracy when not receiving full CPU usage.
THanks for any suggestions
Exactly what are you trying to accomplish? Are you trying to cause a query
to run automatically every so often? If so, you will need to use the timer
event on a form to do that.

Maurita ...a count field in a query?
I have a query in which I would like to create a field which
increments by 1 for each record selected, so if there are 10 records
selected by the query, this column would show numbers 1 to 10.
Ideally I would like to have some text in front of each number, say
invoice1, invoice2 etc.
From a previous posting I realise that this is frowned upon but it
would be the simplest solution for my problem!
How can I do this?

AFAIK, you can't. You can build the form with the Continuous view, then set the control's Backstyle to Transparent, then
set the form's Detail section backcolor as needed. With a small amount of effort, you can make the Continuous form look
