Increasing field size in detail inquiry

I would like to increase the size of one of the fields in the account area of 
detail inquiry. Right now the W in account number W-123-4567-33-us looks like 
a V. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

You might have done this already but maybe not.  Did you go to the Account 
Format Setup window and for your first account segment change the Display 
Width from "standard" to "Expansion 3"?

That should do the trick for you.

Add-ins to autogenerate a select query with all fields?
Hello, I find myself often in position to make an append query from one table to another. The procedure is simple. Usually I make first an select query then I check up the suitability of the resulted rowset and after that I change the select query to the append one. Often but I have to modify the fields of the origin table before I append them to the second one and in such cases I can't use at the begining the simple select query with a wild character * for using all fields. What disturbs me very much in the query design view is that I must click for each field of the table to pu...

Increase size of pie chart within control?
Is there a way to increase the size of a pie chart within its control? I have a limited amount of space in which to display the chart, so the overall size of the control is restricted. But within it there's quite a lot of "wasted" white space and I would like to make the pie itself larger and more legible. Can do, or not? Many thanks CW In design mode, double-click on the chart within the control to select it for editing. Then use the sizing handles to resize the chart area to the size of the control; this does not have to be square. Click on the plot area to select it ...

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. For example: =GETPIVOTDATA("Region",$A$5,"Valid","Yes")/GETPIVOTDATA("Region",$A$5) MOE wrote: &g...

Drivers for percentage increase
I am trying to set up a driver to include in my budget profile so that my managers can select the percentage from a driver and see on each budget line what the outcome will be i.e staff costs may be calculated at 150,000 but if I used my driver to calculate an increase of 3.5% that would change the staff costs to 155,250. Can anyone help? Regards Jo I am not sure what you question is but this may help:- In cell A 2 I have 150,000 In cell B 2 I have 3.5% In cell C 2 I have:- =(A2*B2)+A2 - and this returns 155,250 to cell C 2.

Data file size so large
My wife has been using Publisher 2000. She makes a document for her nursery school. The document is only about 20 pages but the file grows to an enormous size (like way over 1 gigabyte) during the develpment process of making the document. It does have lots of pictues but they are typically 50 to 100K in size. To me it seems that the program is doing a terrible job of managing the file and maybe keeping old deleted stuff in it. Right now on a Pentium III/500 it takes forever to open and edit files. She has broken the document into four separate files but even those are so large that sh...

Referencing Fields on a different form
Hi, I have a field that relates to company size on the account form that I want to link to a field on the case form. The idea is that dependant on what is selected on the company size picklist the field value on the case form is filled in. The field on the case form is a monetary value. I suppose my question is, how do I reference the field on the account form from some code on the onload section of the case form. My understanding is that the crmForm.all.FIELDNAME format will not work in this way. How do I reference the FIELDNAME on a different form? Thanks in advance my understandin...

A subform Link Child Fields, Link Master fields problem (newbie question)
THis is a very basic question, since I'm learning Access without a book, so don't read too much into it, and from my description I trust you understand where I'm going. This post is a repost of another thread that got rather long so I broke it into a new post. As you can see below, the issue is how to bring into your child subform a field that is not a migrated primary key (that is, is not a foreign key) from the parent form, so that this field can be bound to control (e.g. a text box) in the child subform, mainly so that the user of the subform has a visual clue (ie the field wi...

Display Date from Unbound Field in Form in a Query
Just had an issue that in 10 years of using Access never saw - just wondering if I just never encountered it or what... I have a form running a query, the user enters a date. The report needs to show the date - so the query has a field like this: report date: [Forms!]![frm_report]![txtReportDate] I had a problem exporting to Excel - seems the direct placement in the query led to characters that Excel could not understand. I actually had another date field from the form that I did a date add on, it worked fine. I eventaully put the form reference in a Format, the issue was gone. The...

Error mapping Contact field to Opportunity Customer field

We are not using the Account entity in CRM and have therefore not granted any priveledges for the Account entity to any users. This way, the Account entity will not show up on users wonderbar, menus, lookups, etc. Having done this, Account is removed from being one of the record type opt...

can I increase excel column numbers to more than 256?
I am trying to analyse tables including more than 256 variables. I cannot transpose them into rows because the program i am using in association with excel (xlstat) takes the columns as the variables. Is there a way to increase the number of the columns?? or is it a fixed specification of the excel worksheet? thank for any help! Yes, it is fixed - you cannot increase the number of columns. You can, of course, split your data up into chunks of 250 columns - the first block of data on row 1, for example, then the next set starting on another row etc. Pete ...

Unable to Refresh Fields in Field list
Hi I'm trying to update the Field list on my Database. The Refresh Button for this purpose should be on the field list toolbar but I can't see it anywhere. either I'm being exceedingly dense or I'm not looking in the right place. This is a older version of Office (Office Proffesional 2003). It was already installed on the PC when I started. Don W There is no button for that. If the recordsource of the form or report that you are trying to refresh is a query, you need to add the field to that query. The only way that would happen is by either manually adding th...
