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.

I was just wondering if Excel is capable of alerting its user when
date is near or when it has arrived. I know that alot of calande
programs will do this however those programs wont keep track of th
other information I need.
I am trying to keep a list of my buisness' clients and when thie
insurance expires. I would like a pop up message or some other type o
alert when a date comes near. I dont know if Excel can even do this.
Any suggestions will help.

Sorry, wasn't sure which subforum to post this in, as there's nothing
dedicated to pivot table.
My dilemma is as follows:
I have a spreadsheet where data is entered daily. For my example, just

columns are used for the pivot table.
The pivot table is displayed with month and weekly ranges as the row
headers. There is a field in the pivot table that is summarized as a MAX of
one of the source data columns.
Now, the problem I am coming across is the monthly summary MAX is not

...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?

Basically I want a count for SS, a count for SC, and then a count that

sure how to tell it to add up the others.
