Sorting by Text field of numbers
I am using Access 2003.
I have created a database to help me files by "Lot#'s". Our lot numbers for
one of our products is all over the place so I created the Lot # field as a
text field. Ex: 02-01-01, 10000272925, 10-06-02-04-06 and 1503011 A1-02.
Why does access put - 1000272925 before 10-06-02-03-05? Does this look right
My thinking is that "10" comes before "1000272925". What affect does the
"-" have in sorting the numbers. Would I be better off to put a space
instead of the "-"? Can anyone help me ...Importing Multiple Text Files using VB
I have found a very useful macro except that there are a couple of

places the text file name on top of each column as well as the data. I
need it to enter the information row by row with the text file name at
the start of each row. The data would be entered into a single cell

See help on VLOOKUP
I note you have your D1, D2, D3 and D4 horizontally displayed when they

Is that a typo or did you mean D1, E1, F1 and G1?
