Display Row Number in Datasheet View

Can someone tell me how I can display the row numbers in a datasheet view 
when a query is run?  I have looked and looked and can not figure out where 
and how I can do that.  I just want it to display like a spreadsheet would 
with the row and column numbers.

Since a Table is not a Spreadsheet, it doesn't HAVE row numbers. They simply
don't exist, and they wouldn't be stable anyway if someone were to delete
records or present them in a different sort order.

You can easily put sequential numbers on a Report by including a textbox with
a control source of 


and set its Running Sum property to "Over All"; it's much harder, and data
dependent, in a Form.

Normally this makes no sense, as Access is not Excel. Can you explain 
why you want this kind of row/column numbering?

>>I can display the row numbers in a datasheet view 
Add a field for it.   Access does not store record (rows) by numbering.  It 
stores like a barrel of bricks and maybe displayed just as much a jumble 
unless you sort on some field.

Build a little, test a little.

I can't view the whole "sum"
Hello, I'll try to explain my situation the best I can. I have Excel 2003. On the bottom of my sheet there is this task line ( I don't know how to explain it in English) where you see for example if you have caps on or not and on the left you see the word "ready". What my problem is that when I select some numbers I see on that area of the program the word sum= and next to it the sum of the numbers I selected. That sum changes depending on the numbers I select. That is something I need and use. My problem is that I can't see the whole sum-number next to the word su...

How to select & display distinct values
Hello, I need help with a form please. My form has two controls, the first being a combo box. This box should select the company name from a lookup table. The lookup table has only two companies in it, however, they each are repeated several time. Company 1 has about 10 rows, company 2 has 3 rows. I used the query builder and came up with the statement: "SELECT DISTINCT Lktbl_Role_Master.CompanyName FROM Lktbl_Role_Master;" When I run the statement directly from query view, it executes perfectly and returns exactly two rows (one for each company, in a datasheet view) ho...

Formulas are displayed, results are not
Hello, For some reason, when I enter a formula into a cell and press enter, the formula just stays there. Anyone know what I can do to show the results? I tried pressing Cntrl + `, but that didn't work. FYI, when I cut and paste a column from a separate workbook, that column works like normal (i.e., the formulas produce results). Thanks for any suggestions! Hi Mike, Maybe your cell is preformatted as Text. Try formatting to general then erase your = and type it in again.

underline in row not repeating
It seems as if my bottom of the cell outline is not repeating on subsequent pages. I have a few header rows on a sheet. The bottom row has a bottom line. I'm talking about cell outlines, not underlining of words in the cell. Anyway, I've told the print option to repeat the first 3 rows on following pages but the bottom outline does not seem to repeat.

calendar sometimes opens in month view

Stop displaying a line
I have a line graph/chart and it gets its values using a formula and the values of another column. However this poses a problem because if there is nothing in the targetted column the formula returns 0 cause the line to drop to the bottom, instead of casuing the line to just end until a value is added to the target column. How can I do this? Change your formula to use NA() if the cell is empty. For example: =IF(A1="",NA(),A1) To hide the resulting #N/A errors on the worksheet, you can use conditional formatting.

A question about Console window(display or not display)
I've redirected the (stdin stdout stderr) of a console window process I spawned to a pipe. And I want to display the redirected console window, the question is: If I display it(set Create_new_CONSOLE in createprocess and some flags in startupinfo), I cannot use the redirected way of pipe, which means if i do not display, i can use the pipe communicating with the child process. Does it mean that as long as I disply the console window, windows will change stdin stdout to "screen&keyboard" instead of my pipe? That's right. If you redirect stdin or stdout then you preemp...
