how to use temporary tables in dex
Somebody has one example of how to use temporary tables in dex
Hi Cesar. Define temp tables just as you would define a SQL table in Dex -
but with physical name as "temp" without the quotation. I recommend using
database type ctree for performance as it would just create a temp file in
your directory. From there on, just use the temp table as you would with
normal dex table but remember that once you are done with your routine, your
temp table will be deleted automatically. Use temp table as a temporary
repository for your calculations, reports, etc.
---Darryl Baj...Max Limit for Values in List Boxes and Combo Boxes in Outlook forms
Folks, a user is setting up a form. She wants to have several combo
boxes and list boxes with between 75 and 300 (yes, 300 -- that's not a
typo!) possible values in the combo box or list box. Before she starts
work on this, she would like to know if there is a limit on the number
of possible values for a combo box or a multi-select list box.
Is there a limit? Is it defined by the number of characters in the
values box, or the number of actual values? What is the limit? Any help
here would be appreciated. Thanks.
...Stop advancing in form with the "next" arrow at end of "list"
I have an editable form for users where they can query by date, etc.
However, the next entry arrow allows them to advance beyond the result. For
example, if their query resulted in 1 of 4, they can still click to 5, 6, and
so on which only adds blank lines to the database table. How do I set this
to stop at the last entry of their original query?
You can cancel adding new records like this:
Private Sub Form_BeforeInsert(Cancel As Integer)
Cancel = True

I have a table in Word 2000 with various columns. Each row represents one

or not the order has been paid or unpaid.
Is there a way to put a total number for each of the pie types ordered into
an Excel worksheet? Similarly, would there be a way to analyze all of the
rows, and for all rows with an unpaid status, multiply this number by the
cost for each meal package, and display this result in an Excel worksheet as

I thought I read somewhere that Access 2007 had a new function, or
something, enabling you to have forms automatically resize to fit the screen
resolution of the user. Is this correct, or am I wrong? If I am correct, how
do you use this feature?

...Form Based Auth.
I have checked the option to use form based authentication but I don't get
the web page login - still the pop up login box. I have restarted IIS. This
is all internal at the moment till i get the forms working. Any ideas.
Do you have "require SSL" checked on the Exchange (and Public) virtual
directories in IIS? Have you tried going to the https:// site manually?
Forms-based auth only works with SSL. If you haven't required SSL and you
go to the http page, it will still work just fine and will pop up the login

I have a "quiz" form that randomly pulls up questions from my table. It
works fine, and I don't mind that it repeats questions. This allows me to
sit and review for as long as I want.
The problem is, that I want to use criteria in a query to limit the
available questions. If I base this form on a query and limit the number of
questions, the code I am using is still setting the maximum number as the
number of records in my table.
In the past, I had a similar database (which I have lost) that would open
the form, set the selector to the last record available to the form,...show pictures in a form

Why do you not want to use subforms? Unless you can join the tables in such
a way that the resultant query is updatable (usually a challenge), subforms
are the easiest approach.
