How do I increase query field length (>20 characters) ?
I want to exclude 3 or 4 variables from a particular query. Using Not
"xx"or"yy" is fine, but when excluding more than this, query fails. I think
the problem is that the total text characters is quite large (approx 60
characters in total, from four exclusions). Ideas, please ?
60 characters is not the limit. 1024 characters is the limit.
POST the SQL of the query that is not working (View: SQL on the menu) or at
a minimum post what you are attempting as the criteria.
Also "query fails" does not tell us if you get an error (what is it) or the

Hi I know this is a problem for lots of people but I still cant find an
answer. I have imported a text file into excel with a number field that
displays credit card expiry dates as a 4 digit number. example 0408 so month
+ year. I have converted the number field to a text field so it doesnt drop
off the first zero and now I need to convert it to a date field. Any nice
easy simple ideas. Any help would be much appreaciated. Or direction to a
question the same.

I have a db that enters orders. The "product" (insurance plan) has one price
but 20 different "attributes" in any combo of one choice to many (plan types
like medical, dental etc...) and with one "price" (premium). The plan types
must show up on one line in a report with one price (they are not deliminated
per plan type). The easiest way for personnel to enter all the plan types
would be yes/no check boxes on the input form. My problem is I can't figure
out how to make those "yes"es equal the plan name in the report!

I've this problem, when I drag the fields into the "Data"
area, it will show as "Count of Q1 Results". But what I
actually want is "Sum of Q1 Results". I would have to
manually go to field setting and reconfigure from count
It happens for all the fields I drag into the "Data"
area. Is there any way around this? Thanks.
If there are blank cells, or cells with text, in the column, Excel will
default to the Count function when the field is added to the data area.
If the column contains only numbers, it should default to Sum.

feature can be disabled so one is never provided with a list of possible

I'm using MS Access 2003.
I have a table with a number of yes/no fields.
When a new record is started,
I want the user
to explicitly specify a value for each of these fields,
e.g. by choosing one of two radio buttons associated with the field.
Now, it was no problem for me to arrange an option group with two suitable
radio buttons for each of these fields.
The user can then choose explicitly between yes and no.
However, all fields seem to have implicit values immediately after a new
record has been started.
Therefore, the new record can be stored in the db without the user making...Report header below page header

Hi, re-posted! See below.
Hi, thanks for that- it worked perfectly. There is just one snag however and
I didn't think of it until I was testing. Many of the suppliers use specific
currencies so the information I need copied from the Supplier tab is actually
the Local Cost. When I view the SupplierList table, Local Cost doesn't
appear as a column. Is it just a calculation based on exchange rates for
information or does it actually exist somewhere within the database? Your
help once again would be much appreciated.
