Remove Quote Marks From Imported Table

I am using DoCmd.TransferText to import a CSV file to a new table.
The problem is some of the fields contain quotation marks which really messes things up for me later on.
Is there some way I can go through the whole table and remove them?

Maybe a Query?

Table Layout For Airport Minicab Quote System
ok basically im creating a quote system that will show users prices from one destination to the other destination based on the size of the vehicle..

you can see a similar quote system used on the following website..

there will be three main tables..

Airport Table
airportID - primary key, autonumber
airportNAME - text

the airport table will consist of 5 records..Heathrow,Gatwick,Stansted,London City, Luton

Town Table
TownID - primary key, autonumber
TownNAME - text

the town table will contain a list of postcodes, maybe 50 or so (n1,n2,n3,n4,e1,e2...)

Car Table
CarID - primary key, autonumber
CarNAME - text

the car table will consist of 4 records..Saloon,Estate,MPV,Executive

now what i need to do is create a similar quote system like there is on the url above..

my original idea would be to do something like this..

Have three tables that contain the quotes for each type of car..the first two listed here will work i think..

Airport2TownQuotes Table
quoteID - primary key, autonumber
carID - foreign key from car table
airportID - the airport Pickup, foreign key
townID - the town Destination, foreign key
price - currency

Town2AirportQuotes Table
quoteID - primary key, autonumber
carID - foreign key from car table
townID - the town Pickup, foreign key
airportID - the airport Destination, foreign key
price - currency

however.. for airport to airport quotes.. the resembling table would look something like this..

Airport2AirportQuotes Table
quoteID - primary key, autonumber
carID - foreign key from car table
airportID - the airport Pickup, foreign key
airportID - the airport Destination, foreign key
price - currency

but you cannot place the airport id twice in the same table..(this maybe a case of simply renaming the airport fields in this table such as airport1, and airport2.. but can you still link them and enforce integrity if the fields have different names?)

also one example may be Heathrow to n1 is 30... this does not mean however that n1 to heathrow will be 30.. this is why i need to separate the quotes in this way.. for the 3 possible journeys (airport to airport, town to airport, airport to town).. also the quotes will be different for each car type..

anyway.. i shall be using asp to create a similar quote system on my website.. but i just need to get the final layout of the database sorted.

thanks in advance for any help.

Imported Table Not Included In Reports!
I have an imported table that I created a form for (containing 400+ entries). I created a subform on it for a new table that I will be entering information to tie in with the imported form.

However, when I try to create a report, the report won't acknowledge any of the information. It's all outlined in the SQL, but nothing appears.

I did discover, though, that if I create a new entry on the imported table, that information appears on the report, but nothing for the existing data that was imported.

Please help!!!!!

Excluding Deleted Records From An Imported Table

I have a table that I am importing from FOXPRO DATABASE. When someone goes into the system and deletes a record, Foxpro does not really delete the records but marks it for deletion. There is no field to query on that I can see in the table, but when I go to Foxpro the record is "marked" for deletion.

Anyway to exclude these records when doing a query or importing the table?

Verify Imported Field Based On List In Table
Hi, I'm not sure if this is possible, but I've heard you guys really know your stuff.

I have a client who would like to import a list of e-mail addresses, but would like to verify the domain name used in the provided address against a list of domain names pre-populated in a table. Do I need to use Dlookup? Here are some additional details. Thanks in advance!

Need To Remove Spaces From Field In Table
I have a table that for some reason when I imported the data, placed some spaces before about 75% of the numbers in only one column. I need these numbers to be exactly the same as in another table because I use this number to compare to records and import other data depending on the corresponding numbers.

I tried doing a find and replace, but for some reason it doesn't find the spaces to replace. If I type in the space and the number, then in the replace with type only the number, it works. But I cannot do that since there are literally 10's of thousands of different numbers.

Someone mentioned a "LTRIM" command. Does this work within Access and if so, how does it work?

Make Table To CSV, Remove Text Qualifier
Thanks for looking!

I'm using a query to export a table to a text file, i.e.

SELECT * INTO [Text;HDR=No;Database=C:].[test#txt]
FROM [TestTbl]

Text fields end up surrounded by double quotes as a text qualifier. Is there a property I can use to get rid of the text qualifier within the SQL (similar to how HDR=No gets rid of the headers)?

I've tried searching and guessing, but nothing has worked yet. Thanks!

Remove Modal Popups In Make-table Query
I need to be able to run a number of queries where some of the queries are make-table queries. What I don't want is to have is all the messages that come up during the creation of the table ie deleting existing files and showing the number of records created to place in the file. Is there a way to block these messages?

Removing Quotation Marks ....

This is probably real easy to do, but ........ I have a field in Access that looks like this:

"12:12:01 PM 12/5/2005, 5:00:01 AM 12/6/2005, 7:00:25 AM 12/6/2005"

From this string, all I want is the last Date entry (mm/dd/yyyy). Thus in this result, it would be 12/6/2005. I know how to use the Right(), Left() and Mid() functions, but I do not want quotation marks included in my result.

Any help would be great ......

SQL Statement Quotation Marks
I have a statement which is driving me nuts...i'm a beginner with using SQL:

Private Sub Command45_Click()

Me.Graph0.RowSource = "SELECT (Format([Date],""" """mmm""" ''yy')) AS Expr1 FROM Chart_Unsafe_Daily GROUP BY (Format([Date],'mmm'' '''yy")), (Year([Date])*12+Month([Date])-1);

End Sub

The statement is RED for an error, i'm sure it is because the quotation marks within the statement are incorrect.

Can anybody help me out?

Quote Generator Help
I've been asked if I can create a database which will act as a quote generator.
There will be 5 components to make up the whole product. However, the options available for components 3, 4 and 5 will be dependant on the components chosen for 1 and 2.
i.e. there may be 5 options for each component.
If part 1a is chosen, then only parts 2c, 2d and 2e will be available. If part 1a and 2c are chosen, then only parts 3a and 3d are available and 4b, 4d and 4e are available.
...does any of this make sense?????

My question is... can anyone tell me how I should create the tables and the relationships to enable me to create a database like this. I am completely stumped.
It may be that this is completley beyond me, but i'd like to at least be able to give it a try.
Any help would be appreciated.

Quote Form
I have been trying to create a Quote form in my Database. I have a list of products, each product then has a table that details prices based on quantity breaks (i.e 500 to 999 and 1000 to 1999 etc.).

In my Form I am unable to create a subform in datasheet view that will enable me to select a product from a combo, type in a quantity and for the price to be displayed based on the quantity?

Has anyone managed to achieve this? I would love to see the code and put it into practice.

Many thanks

Accent Marks & Foreign Characters

I'm having an issue with foreign language characters (that have accent marks) not being accepted in our database input fields when a user tries to enter them into the textbox. i've enabled foreign languages, checked help menus, used the character map in accessories, and even tried using the alt+# method but to no avail.

since our company works with many foreign countries, many of the firms names have all sorts of crazy accents ( ǐ ) and as you can see from that example, one already showed up incorrectly as a box instead of an "i" with the "u" looking accent above it. I've attached a screenshot to this post so you can see what i'm talking about, however in the example it's the "s" with the "u" looking accent that doesn't show in access, as opposed to the "i" replaced by a box in this post.

My question is, is there any way of adjusting our system so as to make sure all accents are allowed? If you also have a list of steps that I can follow, I can try to redo it your way since the ones I've tried have not worked.

Any help would be greatly apprecaited. Thanks in advance!

Quotation Marks On A Report Field
Hello I am trying to design a CD label 'report', it's going well except that the title field of our productions has to print with quotation marks around it'. The name of the field is, yes you guessed it, TITLE. I know it must be a simple solution but I'm at a loss to find it or understand it. I'm just a dumbo. Thanks for your time and expertise.
