Adding a table connection in report writer

I would like to add some user defined fields that we use for project names 
etc on our pick tickets. I can access them on my packing slip reports but I 
have to establish a table connection to I believe the Sales User Defined Work 
History Table to make the fields available for this report in report writer. 
Can someone direct me?

The relationship between the tables for this link is already defined, so on 
the report definition window click on the Tables button, click on Sales 
Transaction Work, click on New, click on Sales User-Defined Work History, 
click OK.

When the relationship does not exist you can add it by opening the source 
table definition and adding the relationship to the target table.

For other situations where you are unable to create the relationship between 
the tables, you can use Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) (if it is 
registered) to read any data from the SQL tables and display it on a report.  
I have examples of this method, please get your partner to contact me on the 
address below (remove the online. first) and request a version (v8, v9, v10).

Can't get the proper display of a field in my report.
I have 2 tables, both using autonumbers for their primary key. The first table is for contacts (i.e. last name, first name, etc.). The second table is for businesses (business name, etc.) I have a field in my contacts table that has a number format so it can be used as a foreign key for the business table. I then set up the relationship between them & enforced referential integrity. When I run a query, I see the name of the business (after setting up a combo box) - no problem. When I run a report based on that query, a number is displayed (not the business name). Suggestions, pleas...

Controlling printed records when report bound to multiple tables
I created a report that uses the control from a form to generate a report based on that record's primary key. This form also has a subform which has relationships tied to the primary key for record identification and is linked to the main table.

Is there any way around this? I have tried queries but have not found a way to use a f...

Date format in a report
The date is formatted in my table in yyyy/mmm/dd. In one report I need to run for another organization the format needs to be in dd/mmm/yyyy format. How can I change the way it displays in the report? I do not want to change it in the table as I generally want the format to be yyyy/mmm/dd. -- Charlie You can simply use either the format property for the control or you can use the Format() if you need to set the format to something that doesn't already exist.

Transferring Field from Existing Table/limitations and change of d
Thank you in advance for your help! I have two Excel spreadsheets that I successfully imported into Access 2003 and created tables for.

Slow Response time after server move to AD

Report of Employees not paid
What do you think would be the easiest way to generate a report for a pay period showing anyone who had not been paid that pay period--like a payroll exception report for anyone with wages = 0 for a given pay period. Thanks! -- Debbie from Wipfli It's easy to do outside of GP. If you had MS Access or can write a SQL query in SQL Server Query Analyzer, you join the Employee Master table (UPR00100) with the Check History Table (UPR30100) but restrict it to where the values in the joined fields in the Check History table are null.

Help on adding values to a bar chart
