Cannot get autotext to insert field information

Version: 2008
Operating System: Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger)
Processor: Intel

Hello, <br>
I cannot get the autotext to insert page numbers, filename and path etc properly.  The template inserts but does not update with the appropriate properties.  i.e. insert {filename and path} remains as such.  Is there something I need to do to get the information to fill the autotext field??

It sounds like you've accidentally toggled display of field codes. Try
Option+F9 to toggle them off.

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.

The plan types must show up on one line in a report with one price (they are not deliminated per plan type).

Hi, Our single domain company (Win 2000 DC's) was running a single Exchange 2000 server.

Getting to grips with MOOL
Hi, I've bought, downloaded and installed MOOL, only to find it's not quite what I thought (I know some others have been disappointed by the reality vs representation), but more importantly that there's really no guidance on using it.

How to force the user to fill in values for yes/no fields ?
Hi ! 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...

Dynamically inserting popup menu into MDI app when there's a CView

Help with SQL- SupplierList cost into Item cost field
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?

This means whenever I insert a column, the formulas remain correct bu I have to reset the conditional formatting for the entire data field.
