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
Has anyone made a customization to auto assign Lot numbers upon item
receipt? My client's lot number is numeric, they want the system to auto

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

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.

I need to develop a chart that graphically depicts an employees start

chart would have days of the month along the bottom, and the side

need to be able to enter an employees start time and end time and have
it charted along the bar. So if the employee started at 07:00 and
ended work at 18:00, the chart would show a colored bar that
corresponds to the start time and the end time. Also, if an employee

Hi, hoping someone can help a relative newbie with a pretty simple

I use a report to print out checklists that in the detail section have item

I need help in converting time. I am using data from a time clock which
currently formats time as 1.5. When I input this data into a cell how can I
have it formated to read 1 hour and 30 minutes (1:30)
What you could do in an adjacent row or column is format
them as Time and then using a formula, divide the input
time by 24(hours in a day).

I download a csv report from a web based program. Everything works great
but the date comes through as "Jul 21 2009 1:51pm". I do not need the time
in my report. I have tried reformatting the cells, tried to copy to a new
file with the cells already formatted to "7/21/09", opening the cell format
using the F2 key and deleting the time (time will still not be formatted
correctly). The only way I get get just the time is to retype every cell.

I have two rows - say Row 1 and Row 2.
In the first row I have a answer key.
In the second row I have answers from a student.
I would like to write a formula where it counts how many answers student got write.
Here is a example:
Row 0: Q1 Q2 Q3 Q4 Q5 Q6
Row 1: 1 4 2 3 4 1
Row 2: 3 4 1 3 4 1
So student marked 4 questions correctly: Q2, Q4, Q5 and Q6.
Hence, the formula should return 4.

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
