auto number index snafu
I have a 2003 DB I've been adding to for 2 years. It's at 423 records =
I export to a PDF for simpler searching and viewing.
Using the search the other day, I went to grab DVD 186, on carousel tower=
And what came up didn't match the record.
The index was totally screwed.
I went thru all 423 records and created a numeric index by hand. The auto
number field is useless.
But I would still prefer an auto number field.
Trouble is when I create the auto number field, it's still off the actual
numbers of the records..
ie: 99-100 is actually 99-186,187, 188, 189 100-385,...Auto assign Lot Numbers in PO receiving

Yes indeed, I created one for a client. You probably will not be able to
use it as-is because of some client specific functionality but
I'm sure you could use this as a stepping stone.
The key features were that it would allow for rapid lot number entry by

There's probably an easier way to do it but...
I have a series of numbers in column A (150 in all) and a series of letters
in column B (22 in all). In total there are 4800 rows.
What I am trying to do is create a table with the number down the left hand
side and the letters across the top. In each cell within the table I need
to count how many times the combination of number/letter appears. Eg:
A B C
201 0 2 2
202 3 0 1
203 3 6 4
I tried combining the number/letter into a single text field using the

I have a fomula in a cell that takes the name of a person (from cell 2B),
their License number (from another cell 2C)and the Date that License Expires
(From cell 2D). The expire date in "2D" is either the word "none" or a date
that that persons license needs to be renewed.
Those instructors with "None" come out in the calculated field fine, however
the ones with dates come back as whole numbers, Example 8/6/10 shows 40396.
any help will be appreciated

I am trying to update one table that has one record for each employee(table

time off amount(from table2) is subtracted from the available time(table1)
again and again. I want the records for requested time(table2) to update the
employee available time off(table1) only once, but keep the records on the

I have a assets database (rather uncreatively named "Assets"). I use a form

I can't figure out how to format numbers so that when you type 3220 it will look like 32.20 kinda like how you can enter numbers on an adding machine. I would greatly appreciate this number format code. Thank you.
I think you want to go Tools | Options | Edit | Fixed Decimals - 2.
That will divide all the numbers you enter by 100.
You will also have to format the row or column to display 2 decimals.
Select the cells or range, right mouse click, format cells, numbers, 2
