Extract Date From Timestamp


I have a timestamp field in a database and only want to display the Date. In the query I placed this: Date Received: Format([RItemTimeStamp],"Short Date")

Works fine however if I try to run a query to serach for a date range it doesn't give me all the days. Is there a better way how to truncate the Date of a timestamp so that I can sort it correctly?

Date And Timestamp
I am new at programming within Access, and I am trying to develop a simple database that will record a timestamp when an order is placed. I have tried the Now() function, but that will record the timestamp on the desktop which can be changed manually before entering the record. Is there a way to record a timestamp using a Unix server or another desktop from access?

Any help would be appreciated.

Timestamp For The Date Only
I'm trying to extract data from a SQL table that has the date timestamp datatype.

so it looks like this: 2005-03-29 16:57:06.007

How can I query for a date range while ignoring the time part of the stamp.

EX. a parameter query for a month worth of encounters using the above date format.

thanks in advance.

Entering Timestamp/Date Via Web Form
I'm very new to Access and this may be a REALLY simple question but ...

I have an Access 2000 db on a web-based server and a website form that inserts a record. Everything works properly but I now need to insert the date each time a record is entered. These records will not change or be updated once entered. I think there must be a way to have a hidden field in the web form which submits = Date() or whatever the right code would be.

The field I'm sending the date to is called "dateOfEntry" . Hope someone can help. Thanks in advance.

Extract Date From Filename
I think I am on the right track, but I am stuck with importing the date from my excel filename. Currently the following code imports all Excel files from the directory into a table in my database. The excel files are saved like "ABC_BNG_GTR_04012008.XLS" The numbers represent the date. I need for the date to be extracted and place in table into the "callDate" field. When I run my code, I continue to get a runtime error 13 - type mismatch. The code stops at the Mid() statement. What am I doing incorrectly? Thanks in advance.

Option Compare Database

Private Sub btnImport_Click()
Dim strFile As String 'Filename
Dim strFileList() As String 'File Array
Dim intFile As Integer 'File Number
Dim filename As String
Dim path As String
Dim TheDate As Date


DoCmd.SetWarnings False
path = "C:UsersChinaboyDesktopData"

'Loop through the folder & build file list
strFile = Dir(path & "*.xls")

While strFile <> ""
'add files to the list
intFile = intFile + 1
ReDim Preserve strFileList(1 To intFile)
strFileList(intFile) = strFile
strFile = Dir()
Wend

'see if any files were found
If intFile = 0 Then
MsgBox "No files found"
Exit Sub
End If

'cycle through the list of files
For intFile = 1 To UBound(strFileList)
filename = path & strFileList(intFile)
DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acImport, acSpreadsheetTypeExcel8, "sheet2", filename, False

'Inserts date in date column based on file name

TheDate = Mid(strFile, 12, 8)

CurrentDb.Execute "UPDATE sheet2 SET callDate =" & "'" & TheDate & "' where callDate is null"


Next intFile

DoCmd.SetWarnings True

End Sub

Need To Extract Month From A Date
Hi - I need to extract the month from a date via an SQL pass through query. e.g. if the date reads 19/02/2008, I need to have returned to me 'FEB', so that I can link the month (string) to another table.

I have though about "decoding" the date - I've seen that practice used in other scenarios, but never on a date format. Any suggestions?
Thanks

How To Extract Date From Personal ID Number
Hello,

I would appreciate if someone could help on this problem.
What I want to do is to add a field in a form that would automatically show the date of person's birth after entering the persons ID. For example, I enter 39101012345. The first number (3) shows only the gender so I don't need it. The next 6 numbers show the date of persons birth - it is 910101 and it means that the birthdate is 1991.01.01
I need this field in a date format because later I will have to do some calculations concerned with the birthdate of that person.

Thanks in advance!

p.s. beer for help is quaranteed! :)

Problems With Timestamp
I have a timestamp field in a database and only want to display the Date. In the query I placed this: Date Received: Format([RItemTimeStamp],"Short Date")

Works fine however if I try to run a query to serach for a date range it doesn't give me all the days.

I then tried this: Date Received: DateValue([RItemTimeStamp])

but get the message that the this expression is typed incorrectly or too complex. Here is the entire sql statement for this query:

SELECT DateValue([RItemTimeStamp]) AS [Date Received], Count(EARNS_Data_tbl.RTransaction) AS [Total EARNS Received], Format([RItemTimeStamp],"Long Time") AS [Time Received], Count(EARNS_Data_tbl.Earns_Processor) AS CountOfEarns_Processor
FROM EARNS_Data_tbl
GROUP BY DateValue([RItemTimeStamp]), Format([RItemTimeStamp],"Long Time")
HAVING (((DateValue([RItemTimeStamp])) Between [Forms]![PowerUserForm]![Start_Time_audit] And [Forms]![PowerUserForm]![End_Date_audit]))
ORDER BY DateValue([RItemTimeStamp]);

SQL= SQL & Request.Form("Address") & "','"
SQL= SQL & Request.Form("City") & "','"
SQL= SQL & Request.Form("Region") & "','"
SQL= SQL & Request.Form("PostalCode") & "')"

SQL= "INSERT INTO Employees "
SQL= mySQL & "(FirstName,LastName,Address,City,Region,PostalCode ,timestamp) "
SQL= SQL & "VALUES ('" & Request.Form("FirstName") & "','"
SQL= SQL & Request.Form("LastName") & "','"
SQL= SQL & Request.Form("Address") & "','"
SQL= SQL & Request.Form("City") & "','"

Text/Memo Box With TimeStamp?
This may seem crazy but is there a way to add a timestamp to a messagebox/textbox so that I can check and see when was the last time it was edited? So I wouldn't be editing something that has already been modified?

Such as if I checked out a message it will have a timestamp:

09/9/01 11:00 AM

Timestamp, Multi-user Issues.
I use a timestamp field in my tables to help me with productivity metrics for about 6 individuals who use one of my databases.

The issue I have is that their system times are constantly "out of whack." We fix them, and it just happens again. It apparently another program on the computer that causes the issue, but I can't do anything about that.

Is there another timesource available for the timestamp when using now()? Is there a way to use the time of the server (shared) that the backend is on?

I have no idea how to fix this issue.:confused:

Extract Substring
I have a table in which one field badly needs separating into two. Currently, it is laid out as a mixed case text string followed by an upper case text string, e.g. O little town of Bethlehem FOREST GREEN.

I need to move the upper case string (FOREST GREEN) to a new field (and then trim the original field accordingly). Since there is no delimiter between the two parts of the field, I have no idea how to proceed. Can anyone help?

Thanks.

Extract Certain Data
I have a very simple question that I have not find the result or maybe I do not know what to look for!
I have a query containing a field named year and one named sales, what I need is to have a single result of total sales per year. example
year sales
2005 100
2005 100
2006 80
2006 70
2006 60

The result I would like to put then in a form is:
total 2005 200
total 2006 210

All this by simply running a query without indicating any parameters.

Thanks

Extract Data
OK, so i have finally got round to re-building my client's database as suggested several times by RV.

I have three main tables that I need to extract data from - tblMembers, tblModules, tblCompleteModules.

Basically its a database containing the training details of Scout Association leaders. Each Leader needs to complete 26 modules over a period of time.

tblCompleteModules contains the data for the modules that have been completed, MemberID, ModuleID Date Completed and CompletedID.

I know how I can extraxt the modules that members have completed, but how can i extract the data for the modules that have not been completed. For example I need to report on the number of people who haven't completed module number 20 for example.

Any ideas?

How To Extract Value Within A Parenthesis?

I have a table which gets data from an external text file. I imported this into an Access table (version 2003).

FirstName LastName (EmployeeID)

It is always in the same format. Using an SQL Query in MS Access, how can I extract the contents within the parenthesis and insert into a column titled “EmployeeID”

Any ideas?

Thanks.
