Field missing upon XML import

I'm attempting to import an XML file into an Access table.  However, if 
a field name doesn't appear in the first handful of records (not sure of 
the breaking point), any subsequent instances of the field that may 
appear later in the file is not imported.  For example, let's say 
there's a field called 'FieldX', but there's no FieldX value (nor tags) 
for the first 100 rows, but there is in row #101.  The result is FieldX 
is NOT imported.  Is this a known issue?  Is there a workaround?

How are you setting up the import initially. Unless Access has a schema to 
work from then it will infer one using the first few rows. If your record 
isn't there then it will not be created later.

validate a field based on sum of other fields
I have to assign commission to agents for each "order". I can have anywhere from 1 agent at 100% commission to 5 agents with every possible combination of percentages. Obviously, I need the percentage entries to only add up to 100 and I'd like to force the user to adjust the figures until they total 100. Firstly, am I right in assuming it would be better to be assigning the agents to the orderIDs in separate records: OrderID, Agent, Agent Percentage (as opposed to having one record contain the OrderID, Agent1, Agent1Percentage, Agent2, Agent2Percentage, Agent3, Agent3Pe...

Pivot Table Calculated field #3
I have a pivot table with columns for No's, Yes's and Grand Total. I would like to calculate the % of Yes's by dividing the Yes's by the Grand total. Can someone give me an easy explanation of how to do that or a source? I have tried every thing I can think of and the directions I have found have not helped.... Thanks, Ann To calculate total percent Yes, you could use the GETPIVOTDATA function in a formula outside the pivot table.

Visual C++ Version 6. Missing my MSDN CD.
I use Visual C++ version 6. I recently rebuilt my PC. I successfully reloaded the compiler. But, I seem to have misplaced my MSDN CD from many years ago. Without that CD I don't have any help with my compiler. Is there anything I can do? Perhaps, is that CD available for download someplace? I haven't loaded that CD for years. I just use Google or MSN Search to find information online. You might want to contact MSFT to see if you can get another, but I don't think they do much support for V6 any longer.

XMLValidatingReader misses errors
I am using an XMLValidatingReader to validate an XML file received via a web service. I want to verify that the incoming file matches the XML schema. When testing the validation routine, the XMLValidatingReader correctly flags mis-matched tags such as <abc>some content</xyz> but does not catch other errors. For example, it doesn't catch tags that are not part of the schema, doesn't catch missing tags where the schema has minoccurs="1", and doesn't catch incorrect values when the schema has specified an enumeration.

required fields
Hello: Through either VBA or Modifier, is it possible to make a field that is required in Great plains by design to not be required but be optional instead? I doubt it. The best that I could come up with was to just have VBA fill the required field with a "dummy" piece of information and move on. Any other ideas? I suppose the only other way is through Dexterity. The field is the "Interview Range from 1 to" in the HR Interview Setup window. I just decided to have VBA fill it with "01". Thanks! childofthe1980s You are right, fields Required by GP cann...

Quick and Dirty way to get the field down to just LastName,Firstname is to use the following as an expression in a query: LastFirst:Left([Name],Instr([Name],"(")-1) This should give you all of the characters to the left of the opening parenthesis. You could then apply your method for splitting the First and Last Names. HTH ...
