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 have made a chart for sales of 12 items in 28 outlets over a period of 4

You would use Format>Conditional Formatting for this.

Recently, I had a problem reported to me with (non-admin) operators

I tracked this down to the "Default IME" window associated with

app that enumerated top-level windows and sent them this message just
so I could check. Imagine my suprise when I found it wasn't even a
window that we'd created for ourselves that caused the problem.

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?
