I was trying to create a chunk of code like follows:
Dim qry As DAO.QueryDef 'the actual query to be generated
Dim qryName As String 'the name given to the query
sql = "SELECT * INTO AppendAllFields FROM [some table];"
Set qry = db.CreateQueryDef(qryName, sql)
where qryname is alr. defined.
When I wronf it, it kept giving me the error on the DoCmd line saying
that runtime error 3001, invalid argument....
Anyone could help?

I have a spreadsheet that contains data for several different types of

account (types are 1, 2, 3, and 4). The spreadsheet is currently sorted by

type is 1, I want to sort by account name. If the account type is 2, I want
to sort by account number. If the account type is 3, sort by account number.

I am a scheduler and would like to build a pivot table in Excel or a Cross

of calculating the count, sum, avg., etc.
Row headings would have member’s names. Column headings would have times.
Data items would be the name of the assignment.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
You can use a text field for the Value of a crosstab with FIRST or LAST or
MIN or MAX.

I'm using A 2000. I've created a crosstab query that finds data based on a
date range that I supply just before opening it. The query will add or
remove columns depending on that date range, and it will label the top of
the column with the appropriate dates.The query works perfectly.
One of the fields in the query is a UserName. I want to be able to double

Of course, queries don't have events like a form does. So I don't see any

I'm hung up on variable scope. Comparing to VbScript, I would like to have

the tax list who did not receive a gift card. So if a name is on the tax list
it should not be on the did not receive list. Therefore, they were taxed for
the card but never received it.

However, the die set with the lowest inventory may not be the one
