Well, forms don't "run" anything. You can use a reference to a form control on
a Query, and base a Report on that query. Crystal's tutorial might be a good
place to look, this is one of the techniques she describes:

Not sure what you mean... you can run queries and reports from buttons on a
form, but that's about it.

easy way around "not updateable query" for sums?
I have a table. I am trying to update that table based on a query. The query involved used sums. When I try to this, I get "this is not an updatable query." I know the cause for it, the fact that the query has sums. I also know the way around it. Run my query as a make table query, then build my update query from that. This project would have me doing this a couple of dozen times. I really do not want to build 24 make table queries, 24 update queries, and then have to delete those 24 tables. If nothing else, I would expect that would seriously fragment my databse,...

Automatically run macro

Excel Continuous Running Total
I posted a message earlier and have received a partial solution. I want to keep track of how much stock prices go up or down with a running total of how much they go up or down over several days until the direction changes. For example, if price go up 10 on Mon, 20 on Tues, 30 on Thurs and down 10 on Fri I want my running total column to show a positive number of 60 and then a red number of 10 and continue adding the amount of the total of the down days until the market shows an up day. The formula I am now using total the first and second day but does not do a running total count if t...

Access97 Queries connecting via ODBC to Sybase SQLanywhere backend
I have a Access97 frontend database and it links tables and queries to a Sybase SQLAnywhere backend database. I have imported all the tables from the SQLAnywhere into a Access97 database.

Problem is I have SQL queries written in the Access 97 frontend that still try to access Sybase via ODBC. How do I change these queries to access the new Backend.

combo box in a query
Hi, Is it possible, do you think, to insert a combo box into the criteria section of a query? The user of the query will have a lot of units to choose from in the query and it would be easier for the user to have a drop down box to make a selection from. Can this be inserted into the query so that it appears and is functional when the query is run? If would a novice go about it? Thanks, Regards, oic3120 Not directly, but you can enter a reference to a combo box as a parameter in the query. Create an unbound form with a combo box on it which lists all the possible values in o...
