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.

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.)

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
Say Customer A comes in with an initial deal
then Customer A renews their deal
So, the data would look like when you're done.:

...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?

Ok I have a workbook I am working on for someone else and my formulas will
not work. Any help would greatly be appreciated.
=SUMPRODUCT(--(C4:C59>=5900),--(C4:C59<=5999)) this works like a charm but I
need to use this plus (e4:e59="g-shift"). I need the first formula to be the
condition to count the second formula. so basically i want if c4 has 5950
and E4 has g-shift then I get 1 and if e4 is blank then i get 0. Everything
I have tried says that the formula is wrong.

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?

...group by query trouble
I'm trying to run a query that counts the number of people with
hemoglobin of type SS, type SC, and then all others. There are about
12 different kinds of types.
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:

When I use MS Query to bring data from an external source, Query
usually translates my criteria into a HAVING statement, which results
in my criteria being included in the GROUP BY statement -- which I do
not want. I then have to manually change the HAVING to a WHERE, move
the criteria up above the GROUP BY and edit the GROUP BY.
I don't like to be bothered to do this, and have trouble explaining
this technique to others.
Is there a way to make MS Query default to WHERE instead of HAVING?

Realistically, there isn't a "perfect example", since how you get the
