Is there a way to change the color of a chart bar based on the value of the
cell that generates that particular bar? In other words, I have a chart
with 15 vertical bars and I want to change the color of one or more of the
bars if its value goes above 100% (but not all of the bars).

I have a Table called ServiceTypes. Based on a User's input on a
ProposalForm, ServiceTypes need to be added to a ProposalServicesTable.
For instance, I have a Check Box on the ProposalForm. When a Check Box is
clicked Yes, Access must search the ServiceTypes Table, select a specific
ServiceTypeID, and add the ServiceType to the ProposalServicesTable.
How can I add the proper Service record from the ServiceTable to the
ProposalServicesTable based on the Check Box?
I wouldn't do it that way. I'd use a listbox (with multi-select set to YES)
that was sourced to the ServiceTab...transfer inbox in table format to word
In my older version I could cut and paste the table

get the whole text not just the headings. Is it possible
to transfer the table format to a word file?

If you are typing the data into the cell use Alt-Enter between each

(merged cells, colors, borders, and data formatting (99% turns into
0.99)) when I open a file on our office server make edits and then
save the new file on the server. Each sheet usually has a mix of
locked and unlocked cells and I unprotect the sheet to make edits.
Also, something is fundamentally changed with the file as its size
doubles or triples. If I reopen the corrupted file and redo any of
the formatting and try to save it none of the new formatting is
retained either. Has anyone else ever experienced a pr...Count occurrances with conditions

Hi. I have a field that is set to Yes/No. I want to ask the user a question
and based on their response (whether they type yes or no) I want the query to
check the field and return all records marked yes is they type yes and all
other records if they type no. How can I do this?
Also, could I present them with a simple text box (having yes and no
choices) or maybe a check box so they won't have to type anything? If you
