DECIMAL v DOUBLE
I'm pretty new to SQL and am a little confused as to which field type I
should use to store my 'currency' type data.
What's the main difference between these two data types and which would best
fit the purpose?
I want to store signed numerical data with up to 6 decimal places.
Thanks in advance for any help.
DECIMAL is an exact numeric, whereas DOUBLE is approximate - which means
that whilst you can store e.g. 1.234567 in a decimal and it's equal to
1.234567, for a double this may be stored as 1.23456699999999.

like the target paper to be letter (8.5 x 11).

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.
