I have a database that uses the SSN as the primary key, but only the last 4 digits of the SSN need to be shown on the reports that are generated. I can't figure out how to use the Left function to extract only the last 4 digits. For example if a SSN were: 123-45-6789 I would want the field to read ***-**-6789, or just 6789 whichever is easiest. I would appreciate any help that could be given.
Hi there! I'm bulding this database where the user will have to insert a full phone number. What I would like to know is? if is there any way where Access can pick the first 5 digits of the number to compare with information already imputed in. by example if the user input the number 01942789789, access pick the number 01942 to look for a match? I know I could do with two diferents fields one for the code number and other for the number, but my boss only want one field. Is there anyone that could help me
Open the database – then open the Report: rep_Billing
I have a query that is doing some sort and count functions. The column [TYPE] is sorted then counted. Instead of sorting by the full name can the query sort based off of the first 2 characters?
Example: On the report the first company is: AMERICAN POSTCARDS
First it separates the colors, which is good. Then separates the [TYPE] then counts the total amount that color was that type. However I do not want the full type to be separated out, I want it based on the first 2 characters so that the “N-“ will all stay together as a group.
Final count should say: AMERICAN POSTCARDS GREEN RA 3 RED N- 14 RED PR 16 RED RA 12 BLUE NC 1
I know I can get this info from the report, but it has to be done at the query level because it is going to be exported into another system at that point. Thanks.
Let me know if I need to make this clearer. Thank you all.
I hope someone can help me. I have a report that prints out with the customers social security number on it. I need to change it so that only the last four digits of the SSN show, so it would like something like this XXX-XX-1234. I still want it to keep the full SSN in my Table though so we can search for the customers info with the SSN.
Is there a way that I can change it on the report only and not mess up any other forms that I have it on? Any help would be awesome!
I have a table in which i have fields that have numbers with a huge number of digits after the decimal. i.e 10.2356491876545.... when i change the properties of the field to show only two digits. it does display two digits but the number is still stored in its original format. Is there anway i can chop off the unwanted digits forever so that they are not stored in the table anymore.
I'm trying to export from a text file. However one of the fields contains 2 items of data, ie the code and name of a person. eg 'po2 Paul O Mahony'. What I want to do is query only the code(first 3 digits) from this field. ie 'po2'. Is there a way of doing this within a query (sql) or do I have to use vbscript to solve this? thanks
I have two fields in the same table [Original Trace] and [First8]. I want to have [First8] default to the first 8 digits of [Original Trace]. So far I've set the field size of [First8] to 8 digits in the table. I can't set the default value in the table, so I tried setting it in the text box for [First8] on my form. I set the default value to "=[Original Trace]" and when that didn't work I tried "=Forms![MyFormName]![Original Trace]" How can I set [First8] to default to the first 8 digits of [Original Trace]?
I know I could set this up as the control for the field, but my challenge is I need the field to show up in the table. I use the [First8] field to link two of my tables together. It is the only common data.
I need a field to permit only numbers. Upon selecting number for the data type I select Long Integer for a longer number... But it only allows 9 digits.. I need it to allow to enter in longer numbers... Any help? Thank you very much in avdance
I'm just to work with Fox Pro, and I am therefore puzzled with how to define the exact number of digits in a field in a table in Access. If I need 9 digits + 2 decimals in a number filed, how do I define that in design view?
Also, I need to know how to export a table into a text file, with a format without any spaces, and each record is divided with a new line. This an old IBM text format file.
I have a text box, which requires a 8-digit number entry. I have wrote the code to check that the length is 8 and if it isn't a label will turn visible next to the field telling the user entry must be 8 digits.
This works for when i enter a number less than 8-digits but when i input a number with more digits as it does not fit into the text box it turns it to a scientific format value and when the code runs it shows the length is actually 8! And therefore the entry is valid!
I.e. when i input 123456789 the text box shows 1.23E+08 which is 8 charecters!
I dont want any error messages to pop up as i handle them by code and use labels to show the error message next to the problem field and i would like to keep this consistent. Is there any way i can do this by a function or a property in the table or form?
I have a table that imports data - including date of birth. the format is dd.mm.yyyy - the db keeps throwing up the error - Birthdate must be 8 digits. The only validation I have for the field is "<date()" to ensure that a future date is not entered.
We receive UPC codes from various manufactures in MS Excel format where Excel has removed the leading zero and the length of the UPC code is only 11 digits. Our data feed to Amazon.com requires the field to have 12 digits. It there are reasonable way of setting the minimum number of numbers required in the UPC field, so that when we import the Excel data to our database it will add the leading zero to the UPC number.
I have a field with a whole number ... I am creating a different field to give me the number of digits in the number field ... What function can I use to determine the number of digits in a number "double" field ... For example, number field is 2699, I want a function to give me "4", if the number is 34567, I want the result of "5", etc.
How can I do this quickly ... I have 7 million records to update quickly ... if the price field length is 3 - decimal needs to be 2 places to the left, if the length is 4 it needs to be 3 places to the left and if the length is 5 it needs to be 4 places to the left....
