Add an unbound control to the form.
Set it's Control Source to:

Change SSN to whatever the actual social security field name is.
Make sure the name of this control is not the same as the name of the
social security field.
Please respond only to this newsgroup.

Or you can format it in a way that is often used to show obscured

="***-**-" + Right([SSN],4)

This will show it in format ***-**-1234 if there is a value there.  By
using the + for concatenation, it will show nothing if the SSN is

How many digit i can set with my Store ID
How many digit i can set with my Store ID? Is it max of 4 digit? I do not suggest more than 5 as this may then cause problems with interstore transfer - also make sure that no transfer ID [which can manually be changed] is more than 14 characters.

Dual Displays
I want to connect my Sharp Aquos flat screen TV to my computer, and see my desktop on both the TV and computer monitor. Windows Vista Home Premium. HP Pavilion a1610n computer. Galaxy GeForce 8400 GS graphics card, outputs: 1-VGA, 1-DVI, and 1-SVGA. There is no HDMI port on the card. I connected a VGA cable between the motherboard "on-board" VGA port and the TV, figuring that I could use that output to work with the TV. The computer monitor is plugged into the GeForce graphics card. Tried the Desktop "Display Setting". It says, the number 2 monitor is "N...

How to select & display distinct values
Hello, I need help with a form please. My form has two controls, the first being a combo box. This box should select the company name from a lookup table. The lookup table has only two companies in it, however, they each are repeated several time. Company 1 has about 10 rows, company 2 has 3 rows. I used the query builder and came up with the statement: "SELECT DISTINCT Lktbl_Role_Master.CompanyName FROM Lktbl_Role_Master;" When I run the statement directly from query view, it executes perfectly and returns exactly two rows (one for each company, in a datasheet view) ho...

PK and FK Displayed
I am a complete Visio newbie, and cannot find the answer I need in books or online help. I am trying to create ER diagrams from scratch, and not connected to real tables, using VEA. I have added tables ('Entities') to the form, connected them with a Relationship connector, and, in the Database Properties window I've assigned the end points to a Primary Key on the left and a Foreign Key on the right. But the model shows the connector as running between the top colums on both sides, whereas I want the keys to be in that upper box and provide the connector's end points. Wh...

Formulas are displayed, results are not
Hello, For some reason, when I enter a formula into a cell and press enter, the formula just stays there. Anyone know what I can do to show the results? I tried pressing Cntrl + `, but that didn't work. FYI, when I cut and paste a column from a separate workbook, that column works like normal (i.e., the formulas produce results). Thanks for any suggestions! Hi Mike, Maybe your cell is preformatted as Text. Try formatting to general then erase your = and type it in again.

Stop displaying a line
I have a line graph/chart and it gets its values using a formula and the values of another column. However this poses a problem because if there is nothing in the targetted column the formula returns 0 cause the line to drop to the bottom, instead of casuing the line to just end until a value is added to the target column. How can I do this? Change your formula to use NA() if the cell is empty. For example: =IF(A1="",NA(),A1) To hide the resulting #N/A errors on the worksheet, you can use conditional formatting. There are instructions here:

A question about Console window(display or not display)
I've redirected the (stdin stdout stderr) of a console window process I spawned to a pipe. And I want to display the redirected console window, the question is: If I display it(set Create_new_CONSOLE in createprocess and some flags in startupinfo), I cannot use the redirected way of pipe, which means if i do not display, i can use the pipe communicating with the child process. Does it mean that as long as I disply the console window, windows will change stdin stdout to "screen&keyboard" instead of my pipe? That's right. If you redirect stdin or stdout then you preemp...

unattached textboxes disappear when a msgbox is displayed on a tab control

Dynamic Chart Display
I have set up many dynamic charts using named ranges with the counta function. At times when reopened the data is not displayed properly - it will be skewed to the left with blank intervals although all data is there. It can be corrected by going to the data sheet and resaving the spreadsheet but this is very inconvenient and doesn't always work. This is particularly a problem when the spreadsheet is for distribution or to be used as part of a presentation. Does anyone know if there is a way to 'freeze' the display so this does not occur?

Arial Font not fixed pitch on display zoom <79%
In Excel 2000, if you use Arial font with a size of 10 pitch, with a View Zoom factor of 79% or below it is displayed as a proportional font. i.e. the number 1 uses less space than the number 8. If you use a zoom factor of greater than 80% it displays as a fixed pitch font. Is there any way to make the font display permanently as fixed pitch, regardless of zoom factor? Arial is always proportional--maybe you meant courier new???

Sorry, I've looked everywhere, through google and all my saved spreadsheets but I don't remember enough to have brought up any kind of useful result. I have a spreadsheet that is tracking time. I have the format set to HH:mm:ss and enter 375000, for example, for a 37.5 hh workweek. In the column that deducts for overtime, I have a couple of entries like this: 00:74:00 00:81:00 where 00:74:00 would be better as 01:14:00 for 1 hour and 14 minutes, and 00:81:00 should display as 01:21:00. How can we this be done pls? I don't see how to apply anything in
