A 'digit' is a single numeric character - 39 is two digits. Do you want six
*digits* or a set of six numbers, as you would get with a Lotto game?

If the latter, you can get all 2763633600 possible combinations by using a
table Num with one number field N, manually filled with values 1 to 40. The
query would be a "Cartesian join" - just add the Num table to the query six
times, selecting N for each; Access will alias the instances to Num, Num_1,
Num_2 and so on. In the criteria for Num_1.N put

> Num.N

In the criteria for Num_2.N put

> Num_1.N

and so on up to Num_6.N; this will prevent duplicates.

DON'T print this query unless you own stock in the company that makes toner

If you want just a (single) random set of six numbers, there are tricks to do
so...

```If you are wanting a Lotto type list on 6 numbers then I found that it was
too large for Access 2007 to handle.  Calculating 40 to the 6th power is

Make table truncates text concatenated using fnConcatenate
I have a MakeTable query which uses the fnConcatenate( ) function to merge a bunch of information into a single field. Unfortunately, the field length exceeds 255 characters and the MakeTable tries to dump this into a text field, rather than identifying that the field should be a memo field. I know I could create the base table and import the data from my query into that table, but I would prefer to make this table on the fly, and then delete it when I am done with it.
