limitation of characters in query?

I am trying to write a condition in my query using IIf statement and
the statement is quite long.
But I facing a problems that I am not able to type out all the
condition in the query.
Is there any limits for character type in the query field?

Yes: 1024 bytes if I recall aright. Help for "Specifications" will get the
straight scoop.

Big complex nested IIF statements usually indicate either a need for another
table, or an alternative approach. The Switch() function can do multiple IF
conditions; it takes arguments in pairs, evaluates the pairs left to right,
and when it first encounters a pair where the first argument is TRUE it
returns the second of the pair.

If it's a multiple value lookup - consider creating a simple translation
table. You can replace

IIF(Code = 1, "A", IIF(Code = 2, "B", IIF(Code = 3, "C", IIF....))))))))))))

with a simple table with two fields, Code and Result; join this to your table
by Code and display the Result.

Keep quoted numeric characters as text.
Is there any way I can keep Excell from converting double quoted strings of numeric characters to a number when opening a .csv file? I have a column where sometimes the text being imported is something like "001". I need to load it as text '001' instead of as a number 1. If I change the column to text after opening the file, the leading zeros are still missing. In MacXL you can open it directly with Text Import wizard. With WinXL you need to change the extension (say, to .txt) first. Then set the column to Text in the third pane of the wizard. In article <043b...

Union Query
A union query I developed has suddenly stopped working. The syntax is: SELECT * FROM [myQuery - Part 1] UNION SELECT * FROM [myQuery - Part 2]; Pulling up each query individually works fine. When i run the above union query I receive "Invalid use of Null". The number and order of the columns in each query are identical. Access 2003 here. Any ideas what could be the problem? I suspect it is the VBA code that you are using around the query, not the query, that stopped working. To confirm, does your query is executable from the query editor?

query criteria 12-29-07
