Erratic results from query criteria
I am getting different results from running the same query with the same
selections. One moment it is all behaving as expected, the next it has gone
haywire. (I have done what appears to me to be EXACTLY what I have done in
another database, where it works perfectly every single time.)
In a query I have, amongst others, the following fields:
I want to be able to select any OR ALL of the relevant fields. I have the

I was talking with Michael about how We can have a customer Tax Exempt on the
invoice. I was entering the information
in the field of last name in Customer Profile so it would print on the
invoice and be viewed on the Global Customer Data base so any store could
verify without calling to verify. His concern it might not be able to be
filtered out once we run a customer Profile Print out. We do have a line when
We are adding a New Customer below the account number line that indicates
Customer Tax, is this capable of being printed on the invoice and can it also
be made to be viewed when l...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.

Is there a way to
1) Assign events when adding in data thru an update query
for example if you append a bunch of data into a table could you then do
some kind of an update query to say if there is an initial event and no
others tag this one Renewal 1 etc.. the only real data you have to go on
would be Customer A and the total amt .. the event, renewal event and the
delta would all need to be added in

then Customer A renews their deal

...In Publisher, how do I get background text to print gray?
I'm trying to print a pamphlet on a black and white HP1200Laserjet printer. I

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?

A cell contains a number of text strings which form sentences. Text from
another source is pasted into another cell via the edit bar, it may be
exactly the same or not. The question is, is it possible for excel to

pasted in text would be highlighted perhaps?

...Unresponsive Query Wizard
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?

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

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've modified the Collection Management main screen by adding a field
to display the e-mail address linked to the AP address ID. The code
to update that field fires after the user tabs away from the customer

bottom of the screen, they have to click twice to go to the next
record. When they do that, the field doesn't update itself.
