Access Reports: Adding Lines To Separate Rows And Columns Like Excel


Ive been converting .xls files to Access database files. I would like to use ACCESS to develop the Reports but the client wants the Reports to look like those in EXCEL..eg. where you have lines between rows and columns. If I could give my Access Reports the same look and feel, I could wean these guys off of Excel and into the wonderful world of relational models.

Does anyone have sqlcode or tricks I might use to create the Excel 'look alike' report in Access?

thks in advance...and I will sum.

Separate Protections For Columns In Excel
Hey, does anyone know how to set up a formula that will allow me to turn either one column on, or another, but not both at the same time for data entry eg. one column for dollar figures and another for sterling currencies?

Much appreciated!

Convert Rows To Columns In EXCEL. Thanks A Lot.
I don't know if it is the right place to post this question, but I know many people here are good at both Access and Excel. The question is:

In an excel sheet,
A1: Smith, John
A2: 111 Pine St.
A3: San Diego, CA
A4: (555) 128-549
A5: Jones, Sue
A6: 222 Oak Ln.
A7: New York, NY
A8: (555) 238-1845
A9: Anderson, Tom
A10: 333 Cherry Ave.
A11: Chicago, IL
A12: (555) 581-4914


2. Type the following formula in cell C1:

=OFFSET($A$1,(ROW()-1)*4+INT((COLUMN()-3)),MOD(COLUMN()-3,1))

3. Fill this formula across to column F, and then down to row 3.

4.Note that the data is now displayed in cells C1 through F3 as follows:
Smith, John 111 Pine St. San Diego, CA (555) 128-549
Jones, Sue 222 Oak Ln. New York, NY (555) 238-1845
Anderson, Tom 333 Cherry Ave. Chicago, IL (555) 581-4914

This is exactly what I want. And I can do step 3 manually to copy that formula to each cell. But,
My question is in step 3. If I have thousands of lines, how can I fill that formula to thousands cells? from C1-C1000, F1-F1000.

I really appreciate it. Thanks.

How To Make Separate Lines For Checkboxes
Hello,

I am using ASP to create a checkbox for 5 values and users can check multiple checkboxes at the same time. I store these values on ms access db table.

If a user check 2 checkbox (e.g. Mexico, Spanish), then the values is stored in the field will be "Mexico, Spanish", separate by "," or comma.

How do I create a query or report that display these values in different line?
Example:
Mexico
Spanish

Or is there any other way to do this?

Thanks for reading.
Jenny.

Totalling Columns & Rows Into Columns
I'm affraid my confusing topic title is an indicator of how confused I am by this. I can't even understand the variables well enough to fully utilize Access Help or the Search function here...

What I have is a database hat has column headers that look something like this:
Customer_Name, Order_Date, Qty_Ord, Unit_Price, Total_Price

What I'm trying to get is a query output that will have

Customer_Name, Total Orders (in Dollars) for January, Total Orders (in Dollars) for February, Total Orders (in Dollars) for March, etc.

I've been able to set it up to SUM for one month, but not multiples.

I know I'm totally lame (for proof read any of my previous posts) but you guys totally bailed me out the other time I asked a lame question.

Thanks in advance!

Importing Excel Sheet Into Access, Phantom Lines
Hi,

I have been importing excel spreadsheets succesfully for a long time now and this new problem I have never seen before. I don't know how to deal with it. I have had a look on here but could find nothing similar, I have not really had a any luck searching google, mainly because I am at wits end to find a suitable search term.

Here's what's happening:
When i upload the sheet as is, it works fine, bar a "data conversion error" for one column which contains mainly numbers but a few cells of letters.

as before, I have inserted a line at the top of the spreadsheet (below the column headings), and put a 1 in for each numeric column and a letter for each alphanumeric and text based column.

Now when i import to access, I get no conversion error, but access has inlcuded about 20'000 blank lines between the headings and the actual data.

I really don't know what is going on.

Converting Rows To Columns
I'm filling in for someone who has a strange love for mail merge and now I need to covert employee history from a row to a column for the mail merge.

I currently have a list of employees and every change in position is listed as a new row. Since all employees are not the same some employees have more rows than others. What I need to do is move the history rows into columns. So what I'll end up with is one single row per employees with their history going to the right. Some employees will have more columns than others. I tried doing a crosstab but that will only let me pick one column from the original table.

I have three columns that I need repeated over and over to reflect their work history.

this is what im working with
Name or ID will be the key
Job start date
Job title
department

currently every one of theese fields is in a column but every entry has its own row.

I need a single row for every employee and the columns to repeat to the right to reflect every move.

Can someone help me :D I'm stuck :confused:

I doesnt matter if the output is in something other than access

Convert Columns To Rows
Hello All,
I have created a table in access with the following column headings:

ID, A, B, C, D, E.

Column ID contains 9 digits text;
Column A column contains email address;
---------------------------------
Column B contains Currency ($); |
Column C contains Currency ($); | Source Fields
Column D contains Currency ($); |
---------------------------------
Column E contains order number;

Now I need to normalize this table to produce a new table with this structure - UNION QUERY is ruled b/c i have more than the three source fields:

ID, Source, and AMT

Where -

ID: would equal to ID;
Source: would be the value of the heading such as B or C or D;
AMT: would be the currency value of each corresponding column.

Help with the Module or any other way to do this will be greatly appericated.

Thank you.

Take Data From Rows And Move Into Columns.
Hi, I have data from a form on my website in a text file, that corresponds to each visitor's input, each 13 lines in the form belongs to one visitor, as shown (twice) at the end of this message.


What I would like to do is have each visitors inputs translated to ONE row, with 13 columns/fields each. It could be appended to the same table or preferably generated in a new one. Note, there are no blank fields, some won't have data after their title, i.e. addy_line_2: is often blank, but at the very least, addy_line_2: or another field name is always there.

It would ROCK if I could also automatically take the name of each field out, i.e. each name is continuous characters up to the : (colon) ...

Thanks in advance, my Access knowledge is obviously limited, I'm sure this is fairly simple!

The fields:

Phone: 213-555-1212
Submit: Continue
addy_line_1: 1000 Melrose Place
addy_line_2:
badge:
city: Los Angeles
email:
homegroup:
name:
program:
state: CA
volunteer:

Phone:
Submit: Continue
addy_line_1:
addy_line_2:

Query To Total Columns AND Rows
Is it possible to total columns in a query? Right now, I have a query that produces the following column counts, but I'd like to total Pending, Overdue, etc. This data is being displayed in a subform.

Process Pending Overdue Total
-------------------------------------
Engineering 1 2 3
Procurement 0 6 6
<etc>
-------------------------------------
TOTAL 1 8 9 <- this is the line I want to add

Here's what the query (qryStatusRptB) looks like thus far:
Field: Process
Table: tblProcesses
Total: Group By

Field: Pending
Table: qryStatusRptA
Total: Sum

Field: Overdue
Table: queryStatusRptA
Total: Sum

Field: TotalRecords: Count(*)
Table:
Total: Expression

Can someone explain how to get the TOTAL ROW in here? (I can do it via another query, but that won't work since the data is displayed in a subform. I've tried crosstabs without success.)

Many thanks,
Christine

Merging Data From Columns Into Rows
Hi everyone,

I can't get my head around this so I'm looking for some help if possible please, there are two questions, the first is:

When in the query, I want the criteria for the date selection to be a question, ie. "[Week Start Date?]" but I want the actual criteria selection to be from the start date plus 5 days, the only way I've done that so far is to do ">=[From?] and <=[To?]", which uses two questions and I don't seem to be able to do ">=[Week Start Date?] and <=[Week Start Date?]+5" which seems basically correct, but I expect I'm writing it incorrectly (basic access knowledge I'm afraid :( )

The second question (after I've got the 5 day date criteria sorted) is that the query produces a table that shows basically the following:

Name Store Date Visited
Tom Bury 18/01/06
Tom Bury 19/01/06
Tom Diss 20/01/06
Dick Thetford 18/01/06
Harry Diss 20/01/06

The query is based on a part week period with the starting date ALWAYS a Monday, so no more than Mon-Sat will appear, I want to put the information into a table or query, so the result ends up as:

Name Store Mon Tue Wed Thu Fri Sat
Tom Bury 18/01/06 19/01/06 'Blank' 'Blank' 'Blank' 'Blank'
Tom Diss 'Blank' 'Blank' 20/01/06 'Blank' 'Blank' 'Blank'
Dick Thetford 18/01/06 'Blank' 'Blank' 'Blank' 'Blank' 'Blank'
Harry Diss 'Blank' 'Blank' 20/01/06 'Blank' 'Blank' 'Blank'

*Where the blanks are simply left empty, rather than putting in the word 'blank'

Essentially converting the "[From?]" (as stated earlier) or "[Week Start Date?]" to Monday, that date + 1 to Tuesday, etc, BUT putting multiple dates relating to name and store criteria onto one record :eek:

Beyond me I'm afraid, any pointers would be seriously appreciated, I expect I'm approaching the problem from the wrong angle.

Regards
Tony

Automatically Creating Columns And Rows???
I am using IIS 6.0 and frontpage 2003.
I have a web site where people submit questions and others submit answers.

I want to program the site so that each new question creates a new column automatically. (Q1=A1, Q2=B1, Q3=C1, etc)

Also, When the question is viewed on the website, there is 1 text box for someone to submit an answer.

Here is what I am trying to do:
If one person answers Q1, then this answer goes to A2. The next person to answer Q1, this answer should go into A3, and so on.

How can I do this?

Changing Data From Columns To Rows
Hi all,

I have a query which runs off a table. I have the following Fields as columns in query: WeekID, A, B, C, D, E

For each week, the letters correlate points given. So for week 1, "A" could have 1 point, "B" could have 3 points, etc.

I want to run a Query that will show A, B, C, D, E as rows like the following:

Letter_Week 1_____Week 2_____Week 3
A_______1_________5___________3___
B_______3_________4___________2___
C_______2_________1___________7___
D_______6_________3___________3___
D_______3_________1___________4___

I can't run a crosstab because it will only crosstab values within all of A, B, etc.

Any idea guys? Thanks in advance, as always.

Changing Rows To Columns And Visa Versa
I work at a college and have created a report that automatically retrieves the instructors name, class number, class name and the scores that instructor received on his evaluations. Right now the report is showing the questions of the evaluations on a row at the top with the numbers underneath, like this:

Code:Instructor Punctual Knowledgeable RespectfulBio1 3.4 3.7 2.8CH393094Chem1CL349750 2.4 3.8 3.7My boss is wanting it to look like this:Instructor Bio1 Chem1 CH089084 CH90750Punctual 3.4 3.2Knowledge 2.8 3.7Respectful 3.8 2.8

But no matter what I do I can't get it to change to that. Even though I've set up all the things to look like that I can't get it to work.

Any suggestions?

Oh yeah, I'm using Access 2003.
