How to convert text fields to numeric fields without losing data in text fields.
I have a table in Access. It has a text field filled with numeric values.
How do I convert the text field to numeric without losing all the text data
in it that is numeric?
I appreciate any assistance.
Add a new numeric field to your table.
Run an update query that will update the new numeric field with the value of
the text field.
Delete the old text field.
Change the name of the new text field to what the old text field was.

I tried to add the News button to allow the newsgroup

instruction that said it was hidden, and I had to move it
from the Customize Toolbar menu. I went under the Go
section, and found News. I moved it to the Go section of
my file menu, and it was there. I opened the newsgroup
reader, and started to create a usenet account. I was
missing some info for my account, so I canceled out and

I designed a Data Project that uses a SQL Server back-end and an Access 2007
front end. Many of the forms include Comboboxes for Lookup values. These
forms are in Datasheet view.
The Users need to filter the records by the displayed value, but the
autofilter drop-down forms do not detect the values. This feature worked in
ACCDB files. How can I get this to work with ADP/ADE files?
My users are all running Windows XP Professional on a corporate network.
I have a field named Field213 that holds (CASETYPE) from the database. When
I open the form, I want it to look at that field and make field163 visible
depending on what it stored in Field213. Right now it only becomes visible
if I manually change what is in field213, then field163 becomes visible. I
should mention that I have field163 as visible no and display always, the
same as field PBISUB, Field382 and Field163. Probably something simple, but
I can't seem to see it right now.

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

Do you use the others as well? Editing the list will remove them from the

The general concept of tables is that they are for storage of data in
the background. They are not for display of data. That is what forms
and reports are for. Therefore, the appearance of the data in the
tables is not normally relevant, and the display of calculated values is

I am trying to set the value of a text box within a form when the user
creates a new record in that form. I want the value to be pulled from
another form in the database, but not linked.
In other words, I want to just copy the value from one field to another--
once and only once. Example:
the "Name" field on Form1 will continue to be updated-- records will be
written over, not added.
as new records are added to subform1, I want the

Hi! I have a data set that sometimes contains missing values (#MISSING!). I
want to make graphs of the data and I want the graph to just skip the missing

The cells say "#MISSING!"?? How unfortunate.
Either delete all the #MISSING! entries in the table (to leave blank cells),
replace them with #N/A! (works best for line and XY charts), or build a
table linked to the first with formulas like
where NA() produces #N/A in the cells. Use this second table as the chart

Nope. You'll need VBA.

Using the Modifier you can make the field visible, add it to VBA and then
remove the modified window or make the field invisible again.
While in the Window Layout mode, make sure that the Invisible fields are
shown (Layout >> Show Invisible Fields) and then change the Visual Property,

You need to do the calculation at a level at least 1 level below what

Dear Doug, the only way you can do so is that either make the credit limit to

I have a group header for each person to group their categories together.
Note the minus sign just after the first paranthesis. IsNull() returns
a -1 when the item is null, otherwise 0. So by summing up the negative of
each (-1)s you are in essence counting 1 for each null item. Alternatively
