puzzling data mismatch error

I have a table where one of the fields contain values such as
15-13-1C-R3-K6 and so on.
this is a text field

I am trying to find records based on the part: R1-K3, R2-K4, R5-K1
I am getting weird data type mismatch error when searching with my

For example this works:
SELECT myfield as P FROM myTable
WHERE myfield Is Not Null AND right(myfield,len(myfield)-9) Like 'R1-
ORDER BY myfield

but this one using a nested OR doesnt and fails with a data mismatch
SELECT myfield as P FROM myTable
WHERE myfield Is Not Null AND
(right(myfield,len(myfield)-9) Like 'R1-K1' OR
right(myfield,len(myfield)-9) Like 'R2-K2')
ORDER BY myfield

also where it seems that using LIKE works (as seen in the first
using =sign fails with the data mismatch error as this doesnt work:
SELECT myfield as P FROM myTable
WHERE myfield Is Not Null AND right(myfield,len(myfield)-9) = 'R1-K1'
ORDER BY myfield

can someone explain what is happening?

just wondering, but why not use something like

SELECT myField
FROM myTable
WHERE myField LIKE "*R1-K3*";

the only reason I can see for using Right$ and Mid$ (I would use the string
version, not the variant version) is if you can have the string you're
searching for appear in multiple places in the field.

wow, don't know why I didn't think of this. I am using criteria for
searching within the first part of the field too,
but the Rx-Ky part is always at the end.
And to add to it - this now works! :

SELECT myField as p,
FROM myTable WHERE myTable.myField Is Not Null AND
(Left(myTable.PlaceringID,2)='26') AND (mid(myTable.PlaceringID,
3,2)='15') AND (mid(myTable.PlaceringID,5,2)='2C') AND (myField LIKE
'*R1-K1*' OR myField LIKE '*R1-K2*')

(extended as this is what I'm actually doing)
For the first section of the WHERE part I do need to search for 26 and
15 in certain places.
But it works now. Awesome - thanks for pointing me in that
direction :-)

Template Wizard with Data Tracking
I have been using this add-in just fine for about a year, gathering data from about 20 users onto an Excel Database by having them all use the template. But I recently made some changes and then began having the following problem: After a worksheet has been created using the template, and saved as a new record in the database, and then we want to go back in to change the record and update it in the database, the option does not appear to update the database; the only options continue to be to create a new record or to proceed without saving to the database.

New Domain
Hello Everybody! I'm not really a very experienced Windows-Admin - the same is about Exchange Server. The facts: - We have a domain with some windows 2000 servers, about 400 Users - We have also an Exchane 2000 Server with about 400 Mailboxes Now we began to migrate to windows 2003. Because there were problems earlier (I think when we installed Exchange 2000 first time) we have to do some "hacks" in the AD with a tool to manually edit the LDAP-Directory ... Thats why we want to install the servers new - we will not upgrade with the setup-programs to 2003. I think there...

Can I get Keyboard data not using Controls?
Is there any way I can detect a keyboard event while a Form is open, WITHOUT having to use the keyboard event handlers from the Control that has the Focus? For Example: Let's say I have Form that has only one Control, say a Textbox, and this Textbox is DISABLED so it can't take the Focus and receive keyboard events. Can I still somehow get the data coming from the keyboard and say, put it in a String. Of course, if the textbox were enabled and had the focus, I would want the data to ALSO go in the Textbox as it normally would. Thanks for any thoughts. hi, Ken ! > Is the...

I get a Visual Basic Error When I try to print from the File Menu

Please refer to the online help or documentation of the host application to determine how to enable macros." I can print from the Print Preview Page, but I cannot change my printing options. What do I do. It would appear that you have a macro hiding someplace - probably in an add-in or your Normal template or, if it's only certain documents that are affected, a specific document template - that's intercepting the FilePrint command.

formating imported data
I know the basics for Excel, but as far as this is concerned, I'm a little lost. I have a set of data coming to me via a tab deliniated txt document, and I know how to import it in and set it up so that every time the user opens the excel file it asks the user for the txt file to input and removes some of the unnecessary columns. I've got that working fine. However, I need to be able to dynamically reformat what comes in, respacing some of the rows, removing the txt file's header, and fiddling around with small things like that. I have no idea how to do this. If I do any fiddling...

Data file did not close properly?
Whenever I come out of standby and then start Outlook 2007, I get a message that "A datafile did not close properly last time it was used and is being checked for problems".

It has major performance issues and is too slow to disconnect from its information store before your PC goes into standby or shuts down. I would never leave Outlook running.

Transfer data from Excel col. A to multiple columns in the same sh
A Excel 2003 spreadsheet has only one column of player data: column A. The first three data items in column A are the same for every player: Name, Address and Phone.

Sometimes, a player’s last comment is blank resulting in two blank cells in column A before the data for the next player. I need an Excel 2003 VBA macro to: 1.

Upgraded using disk to 1.3 now MSDE error
