I am making a form in outlook 2003 and what I am trying to do is when you check the check box to enable the text box but i haven't found the way to do this. And it looks like the little I know of Visual basic won't work with outlook.

Also is there a way to grab the computer name and place it in a text box?

I am placing the code in the Script Editor.

Does anyone know how to edit the appointment form in office 2003?

Basically, im trying to change the description box into a series of titled fields rather than just a big white box.

When I go into form design mode, none of the boxes can be clicked on or edited at all, unlike the contacts form in design view. The only change in design view appears to be some new tabs at the top P.2 - P.6 and some properties.

Is there any way I can edit it and make it the default form when I click "new appointment" from the calendar?

Hey guys! Really could use your help on this one. Okay I have a program that reads emails for a Support box and creates Work Orders based on the Sender, Subject of the email, and the message itself. Well I wanted to create a form in Outlook 2003 that basically limited what they can send to this mailbox, which would be tremendous in getting all necessary information from them as well as make it easier for this program to understand what the user is trying to say. Here in lies the problem. If I make a drop down with a value of "DEPT" then the reader form also needs to show the "DEPT" box, which works for Outlook, but never is ready by my email monitoring Program. Is there a way that I can say for the user to fill out:
Dept: [this is the department
Type: [This is the problem type]
Subtype: [This is they problem subtype]
Category: [This is the problem category]

And take all that info and put it into a message box so that this email monitoring program understands what I'm trying to say? I'm really going to need your minds on this one. Anyone have any ideas?!?!

Thanks in advance all!

I have created a custom form for telephone messages in OUtlook 2003 and it contains user defined fields such as "Caller Name", "Company" etc.

The form works great... the only thing is that when the recipient receives the email message, they only see all of the details if they open the message.

Most of my colleagues use the reading pane to review messages and these fields do not display in the reading pane.

My question is.... is there any way I can make my form fields to display in the Reading Pane so the message does not actually have to be opened.

Any help will be much appreciated.

Thank You!

The problem is that the form is probably being held locally on your PC. If it is loaded onto the server then it should work perfectly fine. I have seen this before when I tried to setup a phone message form for former users of Lotus Notes and Groupwise.

Hi guys,

Where i work, we use a lot of the custom Outlook 2003 forms and they generally run pretty well.

Lately when i try to send one (that has been filled out) to a coworker, the form will turn up blank for whoever i send it to. It seems to be not saving and sending? When the recipient opens the form, all the questions will be there but none of the boxes are selected.

I have spoken to 2 different IT guys and neither of them have any idea how to fix this. If anyone has some suggestions, let me know as we are pretty desperate to sort this!

NOTE: I could not post code because I must be really careful to protect proprietary information.

I work in an assembly plant and I've designed an Access 2003 program to deliver a set of 4 crucial parts to the floor all within a very narrow degree of tolerance. Further, the program integrates FIFO.

Ive done this by assigning each of the essential measurements codes and then running a series of queries:

Query 1 identifies the oldest Part A by sorting the available parts by the date they were inspected then by serial number (to break ties) and delivering the TOP 1.
Query 2 identifies the oldest Part B that is compatible with that Part A using the same method.
Query 3 identifies the oldest Part C that is compatible with that Part B.
Query 4 identifies the oldest Part D that is compatible with the other end of Part A. I have the parts in this order because we can begin assembly if we don't have a Part D on hand, but we must have Parts A, B, and C.
Finally, query 5 simply pulls the information from those queries into one location for a report.
As long as we have enough stock, life is good; but the moment a match cannot be made, it blows up. I cannot figure out how to make it go back to choose the next Part A. I need to figure out how and where to add code to each query to tell it that if no stock is compatible with the Part A produced by Query 1, to go back and pick the next one in line.

Can anyone help? Is the way I've gone about matching parts completely... Read more

I work in an office containing 80 people. We all use emails that we send on a regular basis, with minor amendments, so I created 5 templates. Each user has the templates added to their toolbar & is not using Word as the email editor. The templates are stored on a common drive, so that changes can be picked up by everyone instantly.

Occasionally, system problems may result in the users Citrix profile being reset by the IT department, which means that the templates are lost & have to be "re-installed", which is fine apart from the fact that I spend more time re-installing them than I did designing them! I've put together a walkthrough so the users can attempt to re-install them, but not everyone is capable.

Is there another way of me allowing everyone to have access, in the same way as they do now, but without the need to individually restore them every couple of weeks?

Thanks in advance

I have two email mailboxes that are set up in my Outlook, my own personnel one and an additional shared mailbox. My question is:
Is it possible to have the desktop alert message to appear when an email comes into the second mailbox (it currently only flashes up when an email comes into my personnel aco****)? Is this possible?

A:Outlook 2003 Desktop Alert Settings query

Not that I know of. I usually just mark the inbox as a favorite so it appears in the favorite section and watch the number in parenthesis beside the favorite. To mark a folder as a favorite you will need to right-click on it and select "add to favorite folders." Another spin on this is to have a rule setup that automatically forwards the mail messages from the second account to your primary. The problem with this though is redundant (repeated) data.

I'm a major beginner trying to create an access database for client management/data reporting.

I have 6 tables and all the underlying relationships set up how I think they should go.

Here's my current hang-up (and there have been/will be many!!):

I'm trying to create an main "Intake" form that is linked to 3 tables; tblclient, tblintake, tblecase. (client has a 1-M relationship with intake, intake 1-M with case).

On the form that I created, case is a subform, while intake is integrated into the main form. The issue is a staff member will have to either fill in (or tab through) every single entry that's linked to tblclient, before they can start entering data that's linked to tblintake, and the same thing for tblcase. It seems so simple, but I can't figure it out! Is there a way around this?

A:Access 2003 Forms

co11co11, welcome to the Forum and the wonderful world of Access.
I am not sure why you have the intake integrated into the main form, I would have thought that the logical form design would be a Client mainform with an Intake Sunform which has it's own Case subform.

As to your question "a staff member will have to either fill in (or tab through) every single entry that's linked to tblclient, before they can start entering data that's linked to tblintake, and the same thing for tblcase", isn't that what you want them to do. ie fill in all the data?
If you just want partial filling in of data the user can use the mouse to move to the other Forms to enter data in to them.
However something needs to be in the mainform to set up the correct link to the subform(s)

Hi, I am creating a form in Word 2003 (Running over Window XP Professional). I have inserted a field called Sdate and on the next line Firstname. When I reference the field Firstname in other parts of the document, it also includes the field Sdate.
So my result looks like this:
Dear Sdate
instead of
Dear Firstname

I am having no problems with referencing other fields, only these two. I have removed the date field and put it back in and still the same result.

Hope this makes sense and hope you can help.

Hi lotsacats,

Are you using Bookmarks as Field References?
Maybe the Ref for Firstname also spans the previous line including Sdate:

In Tools /Options/View tick the Bookmarks box and then check if the square brackets [ ] are like this:


If so, delete the bookmark for Firstname and recreate it ensuring it only covers the Firstname line.

My fields are... name, ssn, dob, ph id and cost. The first 3 fields are the same for that specific person and the ph id is getting updated in the form. Cost is the only field that's different which creates many records for one person. I need the form to update all records when I enter the ph id. I've tried everything except VB coding.

I need to require that certain fields in a form be populated before a user can move on to the next record in that form.

I included the following formula in the BeforeUpdate property for the form:

I've tested this formula and it works. The problem I have is when I click OK on the message box the form advances to the next record. I would like to keep the same record visible that prompted the message.

Can anyone advise how I do that? Is there something wrong with my formula or do I need to do something else?


A:Solved: Access 2003 Forms

How are you inserting the data? With a button click, or moving off the last field? If your using a button, I would use the Click event. Test each field's text box/combo box/etc to see if they contain data AND the proper type of data (IE you expect Alpha characters in a test box and someone tries to enter numbers). Once all your conditions are met, then and only then do you add the data to your table. Otherwise, move the focus back to the control that needs data.

IF your inserting data by moving off the last field, try using the before insert event Do your checking here. You might also check out the On Dirty event (either use the on-line help or do a google search).

1) You can use the OnClick event of those checkboxes, so that when a user clicks a checkbox, a macro clears the other checkboxes. But this is needlessly complicated. Use optionbuttons instead. Use frames to create optionbutton groups

Hey everybody

Okay, been playing around with our Access Database here.

I was wondering if there is a way to hide certain elements on a form, when a button is clicked to view the form?

For example, I have a form called newHireForm, that is shown when you click on a button on the switchboard. Now, I also have a form called recruitingContactForm, which has a lot of the same information that newHireForm has, except it has different dates, and a few different fields.

Now, I figured I could just have one central form called newAgentsForm, for instance. Then on my switchboard have a button for seeing New Hire, and then a button on the switchboard that lets me see Recruits Contact. Is there a way to let certain fields be visible, while others are not based on what button I press on the switchboard?

I hope I was pretty clear with explaining. It's hard to put in words exactly what I want to do.

website pages (title, description, date written, etc.) auto number primary key

I've also set up junction tables since the website pages table has a many to many relationship with both graphics and keywords.

Question 1: How do I make a form that has multiple sub-forms?

I tried to use the wizard to make a data entry form. I wanted a form with multiple sub-forms.
If I enter the fields from 2 tables, I can easily make a form with a sub-form. If I enter fields from all 3 tables, the wizard acts completely differently and I can't figure out how to do sub-forms.

I fill the graphics table as I make the graphics. I wanted to use a combo box so I could choose an existing graphic OR add a new one. The combo box works fine for the file name.

I want it to auto fill the size and description if I choose an existing file name OR allow me to enter size & description if I enter a new file name.

Im working in Access 2003 building a database in which the records will all have the same basic fields, but will be a library of info covering a very wide range of topics. In order to make easier how the information is pulled out by the end user, I want to very strictly control how the info is categorized when it is initially stored in the db. I cannot allow careless input clerks to misspell any of the labels that categorize the record they are entering, or perhaps invent their own labels.
So, each record starts with several columns of categorization labels. The clerk will be presented with a series of drop-down lists and will select one option from each list in order to categorize the record. Each choice will fill in the corresponding column in the categorization section of the record. The options available in each of these drop-down lists are carefully controlled to represent the only sets of acceptable parameters to describe the information contained in the record at each level of detail. Each successive column in this part of the record, representing one of the drop-down lists, covers the next-deeper level in a hierarch of information labeling for the records. As you follow the columns left to right, you are describing the information in the record with greater and greater detail.

A simple example: The first drop-down shows the options animal, vegetable, mineral. You select animal. Upon you making that choice, the system returns to you a list of ONLY ANIMALS t... Read more

A long time ago, I found an outlook form called 'While you were out'. It looked like one of those phone message pads we all have on our desk. Our administrative office would like to use something like this, but for the life of me, I can't remember where I downloaded it from. I've already looked on Microsoft Office site but couldn't find it. Does anyone use this type of form and could you tell me where you got it. Thanks.

I have a client who just upgraded all his computers to Outlook 2003 (from 2000) (Exchange from 5.5 to 2003). He has a couple of custom contact forms for data in public folders.

I can make those forms work, but that have the old look. When I try to design a form based on the new look, I hit a dead end. The old layout appears for modification, not the new one. I tried this on several installations of Outlook 2003, including that was virgin, never set up.

I am looking for someone or some site that explains how to modify the new contact forms.

I'd like to change the "Contact" form in Outlook. In developing a new contact, the following fields are by default within the form (in their order too):

Business Fax

I'd like to change the above two lines to the following:

Company Main Phone

Since the company main phone and business fax usually doesn't change when creating a new contact from the same company, I'd like this to repeat when selecting "Create New Contact from Same Company".

Currently (MS Outlook's default) has the recurring fields, when creating new contacts from the same company, as follows:

Company Name
Business (phone)
Business Fax
Web Page

I'd like this to instead be:

Company Name
Company Main Phone
Business Fax
Web Page

The above solution should be simple, I hope. Conceptually, it sounds simple, but who knows.

It is unusual for Microsoft to have the Business number replicated, when it should be the Company Main Phone. Also, the Home field really isn't used alot by most Outlook users I assume, as Outlook is usually used by businesses where as Outlook Express (w/o the Contacts) is usually used by the home user.

Well, someone else get on the soapbox here and help me out. Please. Thanks!

Paul, Search and Query aren'y actually the same thing, but you can have a Search Query and it best when based on the Input from a Search Form.
However to do something simple the way that you want using a "Lastname" you can use a Combo Box on the Data Input Form (assuming that you have one).
When you use the Toolbox Wizard for creating Combos, do not select the default option number one, which is "I want the combo to look up records in a table or Query", instead choose the last option "Find a record on my Form based on the value I selected in my Combo" and then choose the lastname field and the First name field as well. You will see that as you type in the lastname the Combo jumps to the names with the letters appear.

2) I need to generate another query that shows for each student, the number of basic and intermediate courses taken and the total number. For example, in my query, I've already stated the total number of courses taken per person. How do I have this field separated into number of Basic course taken & number of Intermediate course taken?

I am fairly new to access 2003 and self taught, but i have been asked to write a
query that has me stumped and i need some help.

I need to write a query that will return only the details ie name and address,
of clients who have not paid their renewal fee - the amounts will vary from client to
client as they are based on sales discounts and loyalty awards etc.

At first, I thought that this should be quite simple however, any one client will have a number of payments made throughout the year, with different amounts being paid/refunded. this will make it impossible for me to use the 'amount paid' to find all those who have not paid a renewal fee. It seems the only way to see if they have paid their renewal fee is to use the data held in the 'payment description' which will describe everything from their 'initial fee', 'refund of overpayment', 'discount applied' as well as 'renewal fee'

I only want to see those clients who do not have 'renewal fee' in the payment description fields and i'm finding it difficult to work out how i can do this. I have tried 'not like renewal fee', but this returns all the clients.

Any Ideas or suggestions??

I have created a customized outlook form with a text box in it. Whenever I, or another individual, create a form it is not visible to the people that we send it to. But, the form is visible to he and I. The people we send forms to only get the standard email message with no user defined items. I have put a check in the box to make the form a one-off, but it is still not visible on the reipeients computer. The same users that are unable to see my forms are able to create forms and send them to each other, and myself, as a one-off and they are fully visible. Also, some of the older forms that were created using outlook 2000 were intially only showing up as the default email message format until one random older form was opened. After that form was opened, all the older forms were able to be displayed properly but that started the problem with the newly created one's showing up as the default message format. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling outlook but that did not solve the problem. Publishing the form to the exchange server is not an option. We have to send the form's as a one-off. ALL of the computers are configured with the same versions of Windows XP SP2 and Office 2003 SP2.
NOTE: I also noted that when I try to create the form on my Windows 2000/Office 2000 SR-1 computer I get the same results.
Any clues what I can do to get the one-off forms to display properly?

I have a few simple databases I've created for different users. Nothing too fancy.

I have many queries that require criteria input. Mostly date ranges. Several of the queries, but not all of them have a quirk.

You double click to run it, it asks for the beginning date you enter it. It asks for the ending date, you enter it. It will then ask for the beginning date again and you have to enter it again and then the ending date again. Then you get your data returned.

If I delete the query and recreate it, it runs fine for a while but eventually will have this problem again. None of them have this problem at the start.

Is there something I can check or is there maybe some function I'm doing incorrectly that's causing this?

Each street can have many records with types of work, exact locations and dates. I want to query for all work done on a particular street. My criteria cell on the query was filled using the expression builder, [Forms]![Flushing Records]![Streetname]. I run the query from a macros button. When I run the query I get my expression coming up as the parameter instead of the form i want to use to select the street. From what I have read on the forum so far is that the form has to be opened first. Is that correct? It seems backwards. If this is true then the same macro button that opens the query can also open the form?

Northernont, welcome to the Forum.
You are corrrect, the form should be open with a "street" selected, then the query (or form/Report based on the query) opened.
If you use a Main Menu or switchboard to open your form you can add a Command button to the Form to open the query.
Or as you say you can open the form with the Macro, I do not normally use Macros other than an Autoexec macro to open the very first Form in the database.

In 2000 there used to be an option to "add to favourites" in which you could add files or folders to.

In 2003 there is only an option to add to my places. however you cant add documents to this, only folders.

does anyone know of a way that i can quickly add files or folders to a folder (doesnt have to be favourties, just as long as they are in one place!) I need the files or folders to be shortcuts so that if they get altered then the documents or fodlers in my favourites are updated too.

i have looked into the right clicking on the document and selecting send to > desktop create shortcut. Because that would be useful if you coudl change the location to a folder rather than the desktop. so perhaps someone might know how you create that?

I am trying to build an expression that will display only sales that are more than 30 days prior to the current date. I have tried using the DateAdd function like this:

I have also tried using the expression <Date()+30. Nothing seems to work. Any help would be greatly appreciated!


A:Access 2003 query question

Well, using the expression <DateAdd("d",-30,Date()) in the SQL WHERE clause should find all records with dates more than 30 days ago. In SQL the WHERE clause should look something like: WHERE Mytable.Mydate < DateAdd("d",-30,Date())

In the query builder grid (Query by Example), or in 'Filter by Form' this is the equivalent of typing: < DateAdd("d",-30,Date()) in the criteria cell for field Mydate.

Obviously substitute your table and field names for Mytable and Mydate.

All this assumes that your field is defined in the table design as a date/time data type. If it is defined as data type text then you must also use the CVDate() function - eg: < DateAdd("d",-30,CVDate(Date())) - be aware thought that this will return an error if the field does not hold text that is a true date in a valid date format. To protect against this you can use an expression that uses IsDate() to check for valid dates before using CVDate(), for example:

In SQL: WHERE IIf(IsDate([Mytable].[Mydate])=False,False,[Mytable].[Mydate]<DateAdd("d",-30,Date()))=True

In the QBE grid type: IIf(IsDate([Mytable].[Mydate])=False,False,[Mytable].[Mydate]<DateAdd("d",-30,Date())) as an expression in the 'Field' cell and type: True in the 'Criteria' cell.

I don't have Access 2003 so my some of my terminology may be out of date, but the SQL should work.

Hope this all makes sense to you!

The problem with your query may be the Joins between tables. Access automatically creates a Join "Only Include rows where joined fields for Both Tables are equal".
This means that it will only return records where all tables have the value like PersonID in them
To overcome this right click on the Join line between the tables and the choose the other Option that fits what you want to do.

Hi all
Have started up a new machine and upgraded from Access 2000 to 2003 and transferred our database over. We have just over 5,000 records in the contact table which we update daily with the current date as various repeat contacts are made.
The relevant field is set to Long date.
Every evening we have a Word 2003 file that completes a mail merge to a database query that pulls records with the current date. That query obtains its data from the contacts table. Or at least, it used to.
Since the change something has gone wrong and I cannot sort out what. The query will not let me use the =Date() function in the criteria row. As a test I set up a dummy database with a simple table and a single query. In the query grid I added =Date() in the criteria row and low and behold it worked. So obviously there is a problem in the original table. Now I am lost. Does anyone have any pointers please?


A:Using the =Date() function in Access 2003 query

That is odd I have just answered another poster with date problems.
can you open your New table and check the Actual dates in the field ensuring that you expand it>
Does it have the "Time" in the field with the date, you may have to change the Date/Time format to Short or long time to see it?
Has the Date field always been "Long" date rather than Short date?
Also try in the Query in a new Column
Format([Your Date Field],"dd/mm/yyyy") and put the date() criteria in that column instead.
I have just checked it and it works whereas Long date with a time element won't.

Hey Stones123 Welcome to TSG.

Your question is not real clear. But it seems the big issue is the 'use updateable query' message. This is a pain and is caused by several things but mainly ACCESS won't let you use a complex query and update a table. SQL dbs would probably do what your wanting.

Since I don't know what the actual issue is here are two things to try..
1. Make a temp table then update from there.
2. The connecting field in both tables must be a unique index.

I have a question about removing duplicate records in query and report output.

Here is the overview. We have a database of Summer Campers. Several of the campers are children from the same house hold.

I have a query which adds all the kids to one postcard to be sent out. Then another query which runs the labels to be put on the postcard for mailing.

When I run the labels, each record (for each child) is a result. So I may have 2, 3 or even 4 lables for the same address. I only have one postcard.

I tried using the unique values and unique fields in the properties of the query but that does not work. I also tried saying "hide duplicates" in the report but that is per field so it will hide the address but leave the city state and zip. Of course I can't hide those because other people live in that same city, state etc.

I do not want to delete the duplicate records because they are each different kids in different sessions of camp. I just want to be able to print out one label per address.

Any ideas?

I have an inventory database set up with tables, forms, queries, and reports. I run reports from the tables through a date range parameter query. When the report is opened it prompts for a start and stop date, then generates the report based on that range. My question is: is there a way to have the date range entered inserted on the report?

Thanks in advance for any assistance.

I just created a query for a one table database. I'm trying to find the top and bottom values in one query for one value. I can manage to organize it by ascending and taking one top-value, but I can't manage to get top and bottom simultaneously. I was wondering how one would go by doing that, and I'm in Query Design view. Thanks for anyone that can help me out.

I have a Users DB that I cannot make any changes on it. One of the fields has a Date field. I need to run a query on that table to create reports, but the query creates multiple records for the same user with the only difference in the Date filed. I need to have only the records with the latest date in the Date field.

Is there a way to set a query that does this?


A:Solved: access 2003 query by last date

You need 2 queries, the first has the userrecordId and date fields, set Totals>Grouping the userrecordid Grouped and the date set to Max.
Then in the second query you want the main table and the 1st query joined by the userrecordid and the date.
So the first query finds the last and the second show the data from just that record.

I have 1 table in Access(companies) - its big. I want to search on the postcode field. I want to use a dialogue box so that I can put in the beginning of the code followed by a * for wild card characters e.g. CM* This works in the query if I type it but not in the dialogue box. Ideally I would like 2 or 3 dialogue boxes so that I can have OR's e.g. CM9* OR CM1* or CM2*. I just need a query that will feed into a report but will give me flexibility in selecting the postcode area. It's the wild card characters that are causing the problem. I like using dialogue boxes for queries so that I can filter into a report. This is really annoying. If you have a solution it will mean I can finish the database. Yipee!

I have linked a contact folder from Outlook to my database. I have already written a make table query that has been the fields I want to work with into another table. I want to write a query that will update this table with any new entries in the outlook folder.

It has been a while since I worked with Access and not sure what criteria to set to only add the new data.

I appreciate the help.

A:Access 2003 - Append or Update Query

UTC, welcome to the Forum.
For appending new data I would add a "control" field which adds together fields like the contacts name and birth date or Social security number to create a Unique identity. Set that field to "Indexed - No Duplicates".
Also have this concatenation field in the Append Query, only new records can be added to the table.

I've got an query in Access 2003, one of the fields calculates a sum by using the following code:

Amount: Sum([inv_ammount]*[costunits]*(1+[btwrate]/100)*IIf([buy_sell]=1,1,-1))
How do I make sure the value is always rounded to two decimals (currency amount)? For instance $ 4,30171 should become $ 4,31

It's giving me a headache

tnx in advance,

I am trying to use an append query to add to a table named Fees. My query is as follows:
INSERT INTO Fees ( ID, TotalBill, [DATE] )
SELECT READINGS.ID (findloc([meterbk],[reading],[xreading]))+0 AS TotalBill,
WHERE (((READINGS.DATE)>=Forms![Process Rates]!BegDate And
(READINGS.DATE)<=Forms![Process Rates]!EndDate));

When I run the query, no records show in the table. This is my first time posting, so I don't know exactly what you need for information.

Module 1

Public Function FindLoc(MeterBK, reading, xreading)
Dim FEE as Currency
Select Case Meter BK
'Rutland Town Books
Case "901"
If reading <> vbEmpty And xreading <> vb Empty Then
Let FEE = ((((reading - xreading) / 100) * [Forms]![Process Rates]![TwnRate])
+[Forms]![Process Rates]![TwnMeter])
End if

This query deletes the old rates

DELETE Fees.ID, Fees, TotalBill, Fees.DATE
WHERE (((Fees.Date)>=[Forms]![Process Rates]![BegDate] And
(Fees.DATE)<=[Forms]![Process Rates]![EndDate]));

Any help is appreciated.

I have created quite a few successful queries. However, one of my end users has asked for a select query that has me baffled. She showed me an example that my predecessor created, but I haven't been able to duplicate the design. See the attached jpg.

I offered her a select query using "enter parameter" boxes that pop up and ask for a query's criterion, but that isn't what she wants. She wants, in effect, a form that looks like the single table that she will query. She wants to be able to fill in any of the columns (with a parameter value) and use that for her query. It seems simple enough, but I'm missing something obvious (obvious to everyone but me).

Got an Excel (2003) queryIve got two sets of data - Column B Document Title (text) / Column C Document Revision No. (Numerical) that represent outstanding documents assigned to someone to read in Feb & two columns of data for March ( E & F).​
I want Excel to cross-reference the data from columns E & F against B & C and total the number of direct matches (Documents that have not been read and remain outstanding), the number missing (Documents that have been read) & the number of additions (New documents added to the list).

If it works I've attached a copy of a spreadsheet showing what I mean.

This would then be an ongoing process, April against March, May against April, June against May and so on​ ​Is there an inbuilt formula (or combination of) that will return the information I want from columns of data structured like this & if so what is it?​ ​Kind regards​ ​Charlie Malt.​ ​PS If it isn't possible to return results on Outstanding, Read & New then tracking the Outstanding Documents takes precedence.​

I've got a database that exports queries via macros into Excel. Included in this is - for example - the name of a consultant and the number of hours he's worked.

Alas, while the query in Access displays the first and last name of the consultant for the ConsultantID field (which is the number field that's related to the ConsultantID unique number field in the Consultants table), it shows only the ConsultantID as a number after export.

To remedy this, I put in another column in the query, which is basically Expr1:[Consultants]![FirstName] & " " & [Consultants]![LastName]. This works fine for queries in which the table containing the name (be it consultant, customer, etc) is related to only one other table in the query. However, when the name table is related to two tables that are already used in the query, I get the error:

The SQL statement could not be run b/c it contains ambiguous outer joins. To force on the joins to be performed first, create a seperate query that performs the first join and then include that query in your SQL statement.

I gotta admit: I'm not sure what that would mean here. I tried creating a seperate query that combined the names, and then referenced that query in the query I was to export, but no dice: same error.

Thanks for any guidance!

Per the attached screenshots, I have a query on which I'm basing a report, and I want the user to put in a date range for the results. That's all gone fine. However, the output is only summing the hours per date, not across all dates w/n the input range. So if the user put in a week-long range and a VP had hours on more than one day, it would show the sum for that VP across those days, not adding all the days together.

Hope that makes sense, in tandem with the screenshot.

Thanks for any help!

I would use an ordinary "Select Query" with the Criteria date range to preselect the records for tjis Grouping query.
Or change the current query's Date column from Group By to "Where".
