Pivot tables in Excel
I am so happy, I finally figured out how to trick excel
into not showing the blank cell in a pivot table without
limiting my data set!
In the Pivot table layout move the field from row to
page. Then double click on the field and click on
the "blank" to hide it. Move the field back to row and
It seems like you always have to "trick" MS software to
do what you want.
...Form for table
Here's the problem:
Access 2003, XP Pro-
I have three tables that are related by primary keys. I have a
table[Table QC] that has the field [EmployeeID], the data type is
number--that field is linked to the autonumber primary key of the
Employees Table. So far so good. I am trying to make a form that has a
combo box that looks to the Employee Table to get me the drop down of
the employees (Last Name, First Name). The SQL statement builds out
okay, and I get the correct name config., but because the data type is
a number it won't accept the data. I looked at the Northwind example

We Have Exchange 2003 sp2 and outlook 2003 sp2. I have renamed 2 AD
accounts. Changed all display names, accounts name etc with the 2 accounts.
When users open outlook and send to renamed account they see account name
<oldaccountname> in the autocomplete list. I have cleared nk2 files in
profile , but it still shows newaccount <oldaccountname> in drop down box. Is
there a way to edit the <oldaccountnam> value of the renamed account? I
tried the same thing with a freshly loaded PC. with the same result.

I'm using Access 2003 for a database for my company. I have a field in a

When I format my pivot tables I have "preserve formatting"

have any other suggestions?

I have a table: tbl_Plots (PlotID is the primar key - number byte) and

In my form (Items_frm) I have a combo box (Itemcbx) that displays 4 columns
(Item, Makebuy, Revision, IsActive) but is bound to the first column.
However, I would like to pass the other values from the remaining columns to
other fields in my form after the selection. Is this possible?
Can someone provide a sample code?
You can use the Column() attribute.
Note that the index for combo box columns is zero-based so 0 is the first, 1
is the second and so on...

I setup my DTPicker control to be used only
as a date control, yet I'm noticing that sometimes
it will give back a date AND a time all in the
same "value" variable.
Since it appears that a variable of type "Date"
can give back both a date and time, how can I
eliminate the time half of a date value???
I might not be able to exactly control the DTPicker
control to give me JUST a date, so I'm just curious
what to do if it gives me back both a date & time.
Try this :
