Find a Value the first Time It Occurs
I have a row of values that shows the total cumulative number of sales of
items by month. Occasionally, there may be no sales in a month for an item
so the cumulative value would stay the same for more than one month. I want
to select a number in the row the first time it occurs and not select it if

I'm trying to write a query that will return a median for various
values taken from a previous query. I've seen some suggestions in my
searching, but I haven't been able to get them working. They are also
all from before 2003 and refer to Access 97 and 2000.
Has any functionality been added to 2003 for this? Or is there a non-
code-based way to do it? I've seen it suggested to write a code to
open the query, sort it, find the total number of records, divide it
in half, then seek out the middle record using that value. I'm still

I need to make rather long lists of paragraphs that are several lines long.
The numbered list feature forces a new number and a new line upon hitting
enter. this is expected behavior. However, I need a space between the items
to make each item stand out. In Word if I hit enter again, a new number is
issued as expected. However if I arrow up to the first empty space and hit
the backspace, the number will be removed, the following number will be
changed to next sequential number and the empty line remain. Publisher,
however insists on starting a new number sequence. Is there any way to

Is there a way to Auto generate Item Lookup Code and print barcodes. Most of
the items we buy do not have UPC and/or barcode on them. Instead of us
creating Item Lookup code for each item, is it possible that the systems will
automatically generate the Item Lookup code.
That feature is not built into RMS, but it can be done either through SQL
Scripting or via an add-in. I think there are a couple of existing add-ins
that do this, one is ICreate, which is included in the Fashion Bundle from

Years ago I created a worksheet with macros that could be run through some extra menu
items in the data menu. My customer upgraded to Excel 2000 and now the macro to

Unfortunately the menu editor I used when I created the worksheet is not available any
