I've been developing the code below but when the length of .lstAnswers is longer than 128 it doesn't delete the question. Is there a reason under queries or SQL this should happen? I'm hoping that i'm just thick and there's an easy answer but nothing seems to work.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------- Private Sub cmdRemoveAnswer_Click() Dim Answers_SQL As String Answers_SQL = "DELETE tblOptions.* " & _ "FROM tblOptions " & _ "WHERE (((tblOptions.strAnswer)=[Forms]![frmQuestionWizard]![lstAnswers]) AND ((tblOptions.strQuestion)=[Forms]![frmQuestionWizard]![lstQuestion])) OR (((tblOptions.strAnswer) Is Null))" DoCmd.RunSQL Answers_SQL, 0 lstAnswers.Requery End Sub
I'm trying to apply a custom input mask to a text box control. The text box must contain a 43 character string, broken into sections as follows :
(The format is quite strict and always comprises alphanumeric characters , hence I figured an input mask would, if nothing else, support the user to key the string accurately from its constituent parts...)
However, when I try to apply the input mask to the text box, I seem to run out of characters - I get as far as the below but the input mask wizard won't let me extend the mask to the final 8 characters
Are input masks restricted to 35 characters in length? And if so, how else could I make this, admittedly complex, text input more manageable for end users?
I have 2 fields in a query which I want to write to a table. Eg ProductName (field length 10) and Product Code (field length 5) the fields need to be filled out so the length makes the maximum text
For example product name 'test' length is 4 i have to add 0 to make the length to 10 so the field will be 000000test same thing applies to Product code. I have 700 records like this, is there a way in VBA where it adds the extra text to make it the maximum length.
I am having trouble importing text records into a simple Access 2002 database. I’d be grateful for any help; it would save me hours and hours of manual cut-and-paste from Word into Access!
The records I want to import are text passages which originate in Word. Within some records you might find more than one paragraph. I want that formatting preserved. I signify the end of a record with a “#” character.
I create an Access database consisting of two fields: a) one called "Item" for the text records, with the data type set to memo so it can handle long text passages, and b) one for the primary key ID, which when prompted I let Access create automatically.
Here’s what happens when I try to import the data to my “Item” field”. First, I cut and paste all my original text from Word into Notepad. Then in Access I go File / Get External Data, and then choose Import, and choose Text as the data type. In the ensuing wizard under the Advanced tab I choose the option for delimitation by a specified character, and make “#” that character, and I speciy that I want the data to go into the "Item" field as memo data type. I then finish the wizard.
Sometimes I get error messages that not all data imports successfully, due to key violations, and when I check, nothing has been imported. Other times I just get a message saying it didn't work out. It's never worked.
Here are the records I'm trying to import from Notepad:
I have a report that prints labels (similar to avery labels) which pulls data from a query. These labels are all unique and vary in length. Due to the length variance, I want the font size to get smaller for labels with more characters. I want the text to go down to another line when necessary.
In my report under the OnPage Event Procedure I wrote this:
Private Sub Report_Page() If Len(Text2) > 20 Then Text2.FontSize = 8 If Len(Text2) > 10 And Len(Text2) < 21 Then Text2.FontSize = 10 If Len(Text2) < 11 Then Text2.FontSize = 14 End Sub
This works to some degree but the problem is that once there is a longer label, all of the proceeding labels are resized & the longer label that should have been resized was not.
Is there another place I should be writing this code? I looked under events for the textbox but there doesn't seem to be anything that would work since none of them would trigger when printing labels
I have a table with about 300,000 records. About ten fairly small fields per record. I am trying to change the length of a text field from 25 to 40 characters, and I get the error message, 'MS Access can't change the data type. There isn't enough disk space or memory'.
I have never seen this message before. I have about 64 Gig of free disk space. What can I do?
I have a fax number field iwhich has a mask. +(000)-00-000-000 in a table of many records. The problem is that every record has a number in the first part of country code +(001)which must have come there by mistakes, few records have complete and true fax numbers.
I need a query that can Update this Fax_Number field where the length of the string is less than 7 digits. Some thing like UPDATE Contacts SET Contacts.Fax_Number = "" WHERE ((Len("Fax_Number")>"6"));
I've notice a situation in a few databases. One is where we track sidewalk construction. There are two called fields LENGTH and WIDTH. In my report I have text box with the control source =[Length]*[Width]. However it returns some bogus number. If I change the field names to something else like Width1, it works fine.
Is it possible to change the default table setting in Access 2000 for the 'Allow Zero Length' property from No to Yes? Or does anyone know any code that can be run to change any existing fields with Allow Zero Length = No to = Yes?
If I read the documentation then memo field in a Access table can be 65.000 chars long. I have three memo fields in a linked ODBC table which is filled by a append query from SQL-server database. The text in these field is cut off by 255 chars. Does somebody know what the cause of this can be?
1. Is there a limitation/property where I can configure the length of Access memo field? DAO? I have read something about this but I don't understand this.
2. How can I trace that everything is send from the source? Maybe it's cut off at the source site. On this moment I don't know something about a Linked tabel. Is there a sniffer or trace tool so that I can see what kind of data is realy send?
In a database that holds membership records, I have three years worth of info relating to membership dues paid. I want to extract who has not paid a membership fee for the last three years, so we can strike them off our records, i.e. I have members' personal details, but there are no records in the payments table, nothing has been entered because they just have not paid. Do I run a query looking for a zero length string? Just how do I achieve this? Have I done right in not entering anything?
I have written a bit of code in a Microsoft Access 97. The code basically creates a Microsoft outlook message. I am trying to add in the message that I want to display in Outlook by using the MyMessage ="" command. But the message I want to add is too long to fit on one line of code - I get to the end of the line and can no longer type any more! I have tried to add the second part of the message to the next line but all I get is an "Expected line number or label or statement or end of statement" error message. I think this might be because access keeps putting a " at the end of the first line - every time I remove it and add the " to the end of the second line it keeps adding it back to the end of the first line!
in my db, all fields that aren't required default to a zero-length string.
In some reports (like mailing labels) I want the rows that contain no information (like the second Address line) to "shrink". I set all my properties to "can shrink" etc., but of course it's not working, because the value of the "empty" fields is "" instead of Null.
Is there a way I can write an IIF statement that will set the value of the field to Null if it contains a zero-length string?
I am trying to create a 5 page report filled with colorful tables, charts, and graphs. This report will need to be reproduced 115 times. I am almost finished with page 2 of 5. When I try to start page 3, it appears that the height of the report is capped.
I have reset my computer to clear my RAM, but I still have the same problem. I try extending the length of the report, but the window will not scroll down beyond 22". Is there a way to extend the height of the report?
Thank you in advance, and I will try to answer your question in return.
