Query Problems

 I have a table of ecards that is populated from a website and includes 
receiver, sender, and Team leader. The problem I am having is names can be 
entered into the table like this "Tom Thumb", but Team leader is a dropdown 
menu that is constant and lists name like this: "Tom S. Thumb". When I make a 
query to find all the members of Tom S. Thumb's team, I get everyone except 
Tom Thumb, who is member too. Tom Thumb has his own higher team leader, so I 
can't change that. How do I get Tom Thumb to be included when I enter "Tom S. 
Thumb" as Team Leader?

Dear "trainsteve",

Why are you saving the Team Leader Name instead of a index value that can be 
used to get the Team Leader Name from a Team Leader Table? Save storage space 
and eliminate the chance of spelling errors.

You say you have a drop down for Team Leader,  is it driven (getting it's 
source data from) from a Team Leader Table?

Maybe you need to look at your database design and do some more work on that 
to resolve this problem?

If each Team Leader had a unique(index) number, than you could select based 
on that number (no spelling to worry about).

Steve's advice about table structure is very important.  It will save
you much grief in the future.

Following that, the way to structure your query would be something
like (air code...)

SELECT employeeID
FROM tblEmployees
WHERE leadID = forms!dummyFormName!dummyComboBoxName.column(0)
  OR employeeID = forms!dummyFormName!dummyComboBoxName.column(0)

The source of your combobox should be a query which just shows the
team leads from the employees table.  This could be done with a query
something like (again, air code) - note that this goes in your
combobox's rowsource

SELECT DISTINCT employeeID, firstName & " " & lastName
FROM tblEmployees
WHERE employeeID IN (SELECT teamLeadID FROM tblEmployees)

Here, the teamLeadID is actually an employeeID, and hence points to
one of the entries in tblEmployees.  This second query is not
particularly fast, so someone else may have a better suggestion.  If
you have a table listing team leads (which you probably should) then
you should use that as your combobox's rowsource.  Preferably, that
other table would use the same employeeID field as tblEmployees as its
key, though there could be a good reason not to do that.

Hope this helps,

Problem changing parent Business unit
WE have re-arranged some business units into a more appropriate hierarchy, however, we have noticed that a user in a role with deep privileges (own business unit and children I think) to read users can only see users in his own business unit and only one of the child business units (there are 2 child business units). We cannot enable him to see all the users in both child business units. We tried reassigning the parent business unit to the one child that is not appearing, but it doesn't seem to make any difference. WE also tried adjusting the privileges up and down (i.e. Global and local...

ProbleM: when I restore a mailbox using Exmerge with a pst file, nothing is transferred.
Hi, I am practising Exmerge for a big remote site migration in a couple of weeks. One thing I dont understand is that I can backup one test mailbox fine using Exmerge (I know this works, as I have opened the mailbox pst file within outlook and everything is there), but when I perform the restore using the pst file, nothing happens. There is no error messages, and Emerge goes through the motions (though it finishes supsiciously quick), but when I open the mailbox, no emails have been restored. Although it is great that Exmerge is working for the backup part of the stage, I am disappointed it i...

Problems with Outlook 2003
This only happens with externally sent messages. Internal messages work fine. One of my users alerted me to this issue, so I tested this myself. I created 2 messages (internal and external) and added delayed delivery to both. They were both set to go out at the same time. The internal message went, and the external message is still in the outbox. The user who alerted me to this found her message went "before" the scheduled time.We are not running in cached mode and of course running Outlook on Exchange. Is this a bug? ...

memory problem of Excel 2003 copy & paste
Hi all, I am using Excel 2003 for some project. I am having 2GB C drive harddisk space. After a while, the Excel begins to be extremely slow in copy and paste...

When I clicked the shortcut the first time I went in to each person's desktop, I setup the mail account for JUST THAT PERSON. And when I go back and log into each person's desktop it still shows ONLY THEIR ACCOUNT. However, whatever mail they receive ALS...

Public Folder/OWA problem
We're running a pure Ex2k3 environment. I'm trying to setup a public folder where end-user software can be posted. This way, users can access our front-end OWA server outside of the network, open public folders, and then save the software to their local PC.

Shared workbook and VBA problem
Shared workbook and VBA problem Hi Group, I am new at this Excel stuff and I am hitting my head on a silly problem that I am sure many have seen before. I wrote a very simple spreadsheet where I use the Calendar control to pick some dates. Everything was fine until I decided that I needed to share it on the network with other users. As soon as I share it the calendar control stops working. I get a "runtime error 1004, unable to set left property of oleobject class". That's because the first thing I try to do is position the calendar. If I don't do that, it still doesn't...

Conversion to pdf file problem

Rounding problem #6
I have a series of 16 and 18 digit numbers that I am trying to store and work with.

If I change the cell formatting to 'number' w/o decimals I get '1234123412341230'. What has happened to my last '4'? Why is it now a cheeky '0'?
