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

Nov 4, 2004

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 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.

General :: Access Code To Connect To Excel And Iterate Through Rows And Columns

Sep 28, 2013

I am just starting out learning how to connect Access to Excel. From an Access form, I need to connect to an Excel spreadsheet, and loop through every row/column to look for data that matches a database field data, then populates the associated cell data. I don't want to import the spreadsheet since the user who created it is using it manually, and I am attempting to automate the task. This is probably the most elementary code, but I would like to start out with the best way to do this. What I am finding is code that appears to be much more complicated than I need, for more complicated situations.

Forms :: Inserting Data From Multi Rows Into Separate Columns

Oct 17, 2013

I have a database with a form that has 3 fields in a subform. I need to paste there data from multi rows. Now I have to do this column by column and paying attention that I select them correctly. Is there a way to directly insert the data by selecting only 1 field and have the data directly there as it would in excel?

Now we use excel as a "between" road to paste it there and then copy it from excel and paste it into access.

Combining 2 Query Columns Into 1 Column With Data In Separate Rows

Mar 29, 2012

I have a database with all the hours employees have logged stored in the database. Our payroll company wants an excel spreadsheet that has very specific info in particular columns and fields on the excel spreadsheet, so I'm trying to design a query which will put the correct info in the correct fields per their system.

The challenge is, I have currently a query with Employee ID, Overtime Hours, and Regular Hours as separate columns.

I need to translate this to a query with a single column for hours and a separate column that designates those hours as OT or Reg, with two rows for those employees who have both types.


ID / Regular Hours / OT Hours
101 / 70 / 7.5
102 / 30 / 0
103 / 5 / 0


ID/ Hours / Type
101 / 70 / Reg
101 / 7.5 / OT
102 / 30 / Reg
103 / 5 / Reg

I don't know how to create a query or a formula in a query to break out each employee row into multiple rows with different data in the hours column. It seems like there's something pretty straightforward that I've done in a similar vein but it doesn't seem to work - I can do the opposite and combine those hours by using the SUM function in a query, but I can't seem to break it out this way.

Access 2007, Windows 7.

Queries :: Find Latest Date In A Table Where Dates Are In 2 Separate Columns And Multiple Rows

May 19, 2015

I am trying to find the latest date in a table where the dates are in 2 separate columns and multiple rows. (there are business reasons why there are 2 dates per row they represent different but comparable activities)

I have a table "Assessment tracker" with the following structure

Name Type
Candidate short text
Unit short text
EV1 Date Date
EV2 Date Date

My Data:

Candidate Unit EV1Date EV2 Date
TH1 10 07/05/2015 25/05/15
TH1 10 07/05/2015 07/06/15

I have a query "Candidate AC Dates" that compares the 2 dates EV1 and EV2 and outputs a 3rd column with the latest date.

PARAMETERS [Candidate Name] Value;
SELECT [Assessment Tracker].Candidate, [Assessment Tracker].Unit, [Assessment Tracker].[EV1 Date], [Assessment Tracker].[EV2 Date], Max(MaxDate([Assessment Tracker]![EV1 Date],[Assessment Tracker]![EV2 Date])) AS Achdate
FROM UnitData INNER JOIN [Assessment Tracker] ON UnitData.Unit = [Assessment Tracker].Unit



CandidateUnitEV1 DateEV2 DateAchdate
TH11007/05/2015 25/05/201525/05/2015
TH11007/05/2015 07/06/201507/06/2015

It does this by using a function shamelessly copied from the web somewhere...

Function Maxdate(ParamArray FieldArray() As Variant)
' Declare the two local variables.
Dim I As Integer
Dim currentVal As Date' Set the variable currentVal equal to the array of values.
currentVal = FieldArray(0)
' Cycle through each value from the row to find the largest.


This is working well (I think)

I then want to find the latest date for the 2 records i.e. the Max value for the Achdate.

SELECT [Candidate AC Dates].Candidate AS Expr1, [Candidate AC Dates].Unit AS Expr2, Max([Candidate AC Dates].Achdate) AS MaxOfAchdate
FROM [Candidate AC Dates]
GROUP BY [Candidate AC Dates].Candidate, [Candidate AC Dates].Unit
ORDER BY [Candidate AC Dates].Candidate, [Candidate AC Dates].Unit, Max([Candidate AC Dates].Achdate) DESC;

But this is returning

Candidate Unit MaxOfAchdate
TH1 1025/05/2015

I expect it to return

Candidate UnitMaxOfAchdate
TH1 10 07/06/2015

It looks to me like MAX is considering only the day value rather than the whole date. I suspect this is because it is considering the results of the function in the first query as a short text rather than a date field. (I've tried to force this through declaring the variables as dates but don't know where else to force this. (I am UK based hence the DD/MM/YYYY format)

Separate Protections For Columns In Excel

Jan 11, 2005

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!

Adding Values In Separate Columns Dependent On Text In Another Column?

May 16, 2013

I'm trying to make a database to track inventory or several items. Basically, I have four tables:

1) RawMaterialList - includes a list of all raw materials.
2) PartList - includes a list of all finished product using said raw materials.
3) RawMaterialRecieving - contains details from each packing slip of incoming raw materials.
4) ShipmentRecord - contains details of daily shipments.

Each of these tables is fed by a form of the same name. I should note at this point that I basically taught myself how to use Access and I imagine I'm in the dark about quite a few things it can do. I've made several databases over the last few years, but I'm stumped at this point.

Here's my problem. In the form RawMaterialReceiving, I have several fields aside from basic information:

1) Item - a list of of raw materials from table RawMaterialList
2) Description - also dependent on info entered into table RawMaterialList
3) Quantity

But, I have 12 of these instances.

Item1, Item2...Item12;
Description1, Description2...Description12;
Quantity1, Quantity2...Quantity12.

My problem is I want to add up the quantities of each raw material and I'm not sure how to go about that. Lets say on May 13, I received 15pcs of Part A and 20pcs of Part B. I enter this information as Item1 and Item2 respectively. On May 14, I received 30pcs of Part B. I enter this information under Item1. Now I want to add up all of Part B (50 pcs). But Part B has one value listed in the field Quantity1 and one value listed in the field Quantity2.


1st Entry:
May 13
Item1 = PartA Description1 = PartA's description Quantity1 = 15
Item2 = PartB Description2 = PartB's description Quantity2 = 20

2nd Entry:
May 14
Item1 = PartB Description1 = PartB's description Quantity1 = 30

How do I get it to add up Part B to get 50pcs?

Convert Rows To Columns In EXCEL. Thanks A Lot.

Nov 18, 2004

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:


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.

Reports :: Stop Subtotal From Adding Detail Lines

May 16, 2014

How to keep Access from including the detail line items in my report total?

Below is a quick image of part of the report.

The report is compiled from two tables. The first table has detail information on each line, in four columns:

State Name Amount Quantity (Not used)

AL Store 1 313.94 60
AL Store 2 12.59 1
AZ Store 3 576.45 90
CO Store 4 172.22 24
CO Store 5 502.25 88

The 2nd table is a summary by state with three columns:

State Amount Quantity (Not used)
AL 326.53 61
AZ 576.45 90
CO 674.47 112

I'm trying to make the report group by state, then name, amount and a subtotal for each state. This all works fine in the report.

I want to also add the amount field from the 2nd table (State Subtotals) to the report just for reference. I've managed to make this work as well. (See State Total on image)

The problem that I'm having is that when I try to do a final total of the State Total column in the report footer, it seems to add the (State Subtotals) amount field on every detail line (See red numbers in picture. they are not actually on the report, but Access thinks they are and includes them in the final total).

So far I've tried different joins, hiding various fields, sub reports, ect. I just can't figure out how to stop Access from calculating the detail lines.

Reports :: Adding Specific Number Of Blank Lines Between Records

Jun 20, 2013

I have a WO Table and a related WO Procedures Table. I would like to add a specific # of blank lines/records between each record but that # will vary. So the report will show the WO Procedure Desc then a specified # of blank lines below it and then the next WO Procedures Desc then a specified # of blank lines below it etc.

I thought to add a field to the Proc tbl called #ofLines and whatever number was entered would be the # of blank lines to appear below the record on the report.

Adding And Subtracting Totals From 3 Separate Reports

Sep 4, 2015

I have 3 reports

Report 1. is attendance from January to June
Report 2. is from June to December
Report 3. is from January to December

The are all run from the same query with different Between Dates.

The scenario is that Paul attended the support group from Jan to June so in the Jan to June report he is counted once. The query removes duplicate values

Paul attended the same support group from June to December so in the June to December report he is counted once. The query removes duplicate values.

This shows the Paul attended he support group from Jan to December so in the June to December report he is counted once. The query removes duplicate values, if you removed the duplicates from this query he would be counted twice.

Not all people attend the same group for 12 months but if they do the are a duplicate and Paul is a duplicate. That is ok because we need to know now many duplicates there are for the year.

If I print all 3 reports with the duplicates remove query and you looked at the totals it would show (Example) 30 attendees in the 1st report and 30 attendees in the 2nd report but in the 3rd report it would show 59 not 60 which is the total of reports 1 & 2. we need to report these figures as 1st 6 months with 30 and the second 6 months with 30 but the whole year would be with 59 and 1 duplicate.

The way it is now I have to run all 3 report and do the math by hand this way.

Is there a way on the to do the math with code calculations on the full year report with the figures from the 2, 6 month reports to automatically show total attendance for the year 59 with 1 duplicate?

Importing Excel Sheet Into Access, Phantom Lines

Apr 25, 2007


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.

How To Keep Multiple Lines When Importing Data From Excel To Access

Sep 7, 2011

I face a multiple line problem when i try to import data from Excel to Access db. Is it possible to keep multiple lines of a cell after transferring to Access. Since Access see any ceel of Excel as a Field, it takes all the lines as a line in the same row.

In enclosed, you can see a sample Access document. I put a point(.) between every lines in the same field manually. Is it possible to split up those data from these points and make a new line in the same field by VBA? For example,


1) 232N1635-2.2) 412N1168-7


1) 232N1635-2.
2) 412N1168-7

How To Make Separate Lines For Checkboxes

Jun 4, 2007


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?

Or is there any other way to do this?

Thanks for reading.

Reports :: Inserting Blank Lines To Access Report

Jul 27, 2013

I have a specific form, paper version, that I'd like to reproduce in an Access report. This form, which has 34 blank lines in the paper version, is used when people need to borrow some Tools or Equipment on a short period of time.

My report is made up in Access, but, if a person signs for, lets say, three different piece of Equipment, once it is sent to the printer, it prints three lines, which are the equipement signed for and it leave a big empty space before it reach the page footer.

What I need is something that will fill that empty space with blank lines. I found the following on the Net which meets my needs up to a point. What I mean is once it print the last line, it keeps on printing the last line until it meets the total count of 34 lines.

Here what I found on the Net: (note that I have a =count(*) into the Group Header)

Option Compare Database 'Use database order for string comparisons
Option Explicit
Global TotCount As Integer
' Call the SetCount() function from the group header section's
' OnPrint property using the syntax: =SetCount(Report)

[Code] ....

I submitted an attach file (blank_lines.gif) to show you what I end up with.

I decided to link Excel files and all is running fine except when I run a query on the file I get about 1,041 blank rows before my data is displayed in the query's datasheet view or any report based upon this query... the data seems good but why the leading blank rows? The data in the linked Excel sheet does not look like this and another Excel file's query looks fine and they seem set up identically!

Modules & VBA :: Union All Query - Transposing Columns To Rows With Variable Columns?

Aug 8, 2013

I was able to use the UNION ALL qry. But, when I have another file (like original2) that does NOT have all the columns listed in the UNION ALL qry, I get a Parameter value box asking for the missing columns when I run the qry.


original1IDDateGroupChristianJohnnySteve 18/5/2013A1528/5/2013B338/5/2013C2348/5/2013D2358/5/2013E5

original 2IDDateGroupChristianJohnny18/6/2013A212528/6/2013B2338/6/2013C2248/6/2013D22

The UNION ALL qry includes all the possible resources ( includes all the possible column fields Christan, Johnny, and Steve).

When I run the UNION ALL qry with the original2 file, An "Enter Parameter Value" box is displayed with the mssing column name "Steve".

Is there a way to Map the original2 table into a working table with all the columns, or use VBA code to construct the UNION ALL qry to only include the existing columns? My data has variable columns and I'm trying to avoid the parameter popups.
