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.

some kind of an update query to say if there is an initial event and no

would be Customer A and the total amt .. the event, renewal event and the

I have two questions:
1. I have created a patient manager database that tracks appointments,
billing, and medications. I have 4 subforms within a main form. I want to be
able to create one main record with subrecords for appointments, billing, and
medication associated to it. Can this be done?
2. Everytime I am in the database, other users can't save their records. How
do I change this and still limit user access?
Thank you in advance.

2003 and import back the PST.
I thought since this was a update that it did everything Automactily
Should my 2000 PST back up, restore to the 2003 office when installed ?

...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?

I have an Excel 2003 user who is using a spreadsheet that pulls data
from our SQL server.
When he opens it and refreshes the data it is fine, it pulls the current
data, but when he tries to edit the query, the Query Wizard does not
appear, he can see it on the task bar, but when he switches focus using
task manager everything is greyed out and nothing works.
I have tested the file from my computer and it is fine, which suggests a
problem with his machine or installation. Does anyone have any ideas?

Hello all -
I'm a newbe to Access but have made great progress. I'm using Acess 2003. The
db is up and running prefectly. Now I need to tackle the reporting. I have
seen posts about reports and queries and am a little confused. Do I need to
create a query to run my reports off of? I have a tabbed subform in the main
form. There are seven tabs breaking up all the services we provide. Like
"Promo Items", "Leads", "Client Printed Material","Internal Print Material"
and so on. The main form has the User, Branch and Marketing Rep.

I'm trying to run a query that counts the number of people with

Basically I want a count for SS, a count for SC, and then a count that
totals all the others into one count. Hopefully that makes sense.
I'm using group by for the SS and SC which works great, but I'm not
sure how to tell it to add up the others.
I'm not a big fan of nested IIf statements, but this should work after you
put in the proper field and table names:
