Too Many Fields Defined Error
I have a database containing ten queries with many calculations in each
query. In each query I have a "total" field to total the calculations in each
query. I then have a central query which I use as my source for the report.
This central query includes the "total" fields from each of the ten queries.
When I run the report, I get "Too Many Fields Defined". When I run my
central query, everything works fine with no errors. I tried creating a new
report based on all of the fields in my central query. My central query
consists of 23 fields, 10 of whic...How can I change the color of the cell when someone enter any number or character?

I have a table that has field name of Total_Tax with a data type of currency.
The data in the field can range from being blank to 999999999.99. Maximum is
9 numbers before the decimal place and 2 afterward.
My problem is that the data was imported from a text file into access as
400. However that should be formatted to 4.00 or 1234 should be 12.34.
Also a number that is 123456789 should be 1234567.89.
I further want to format it to currency for easier reading and manipulation.
So I would like to insert $ signs and delimit them with a comma. So I need
to go from 12345678 to $123...Update Avg Field
I have form with Bowlers ID, Bowlers, Name and Avg Points field.
On a sub form it shows all the tournaments the bowler has competed in and at
the bottom averages out the points he has earned over the events entered.
I then want to ave points to be updated in the original form, or even better
would be for it to update the Ave Pts field in the bowlers table. How can i
get this to happen.
the two forms involved are Bowlers Pts (Main Form), Sub Form - Bowlers Query
The solution here is to remove the [Avg Points] field from your table.
Instead, have Access calculate the value wh...Fill Multiple Fields

How to I set VB to automatically selecting a field (in the same way as

I have a form with [fo_num] combo box field. After making a selection

I created a form from two different tables, but neglected to include two
fields that are necessary. Thus, those two fields are not in the fields list.
How do I add those two fields?
I have seen advice that says use the Properties for the form, in the Data
tab, but unfortunately the data tab for this form is absolutely blank. I
cannot see any way to modify the query that created the fields list for this
form. Access 2000 is the only version of Access that I have, if this is a
problem with Access 2000 vice a later version.

The date field appears to require the day, month, and year. I'm setting up a

of the known dates? If not, then I assume it has to change to a text field.
If that is the case is there a "better" way to enter the dates so that if
needed, it could be queried or sorted as a date field? Examples coming to

Is your custom form published? If so, where? You didn't include the form

The problem is as follows:
I linked an Access table to a complex Excel spreadsheet (.xls). I also
built a custom Access form to browse and modify the data in that
table. Works fine, however the worksheet also has numerous calculated
cells (with formulas), and these formulas have no effect while I am
using the form. The only way to correctly update these cells is to
close my Access application, open the spreadsheet in Excel and save
it, which is a hardly acceptable process.

if you only have one filed for a row/column item SUM would display that
value. So I'm not sure what you're exactly trying to do. A pivot table
is used for the aggregation of values

the formula 'assumes' that you won't take/close any orders outside of the

07:00 on that day.
