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.

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.

Once I use the Text to columns feature in Excel, it seems there is no way to

Anyone know if there is a way to reset this so that newly pasted text will

Presently the only way is to exit Excel and restart Excel - then pasted text
all goes into one cell regardless of spaces.

Here are two examples of this technology.
Sounds like they will have to involve OCR, which works fine for standard fonts but
probably won't work with fancy fonts. Key here is to test them try a static control with
a TextOut and change the fonts and see what happens.

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
Hope that helps.
