Split Access Column In Two...

Feb 23, 2005

I have a column in my table which contains DATE information in the format: 23/02/2005

I would like to split this date into two additional columns:

A) the MONTH as a number eg. 02
B) the YEAR also as a number eg. 2005

I know this is possible in Excel but can it be done in Access 97? :confused:

Cheers for your help!

Split Data In A Column In Excel Via VBA Code In Access

Jun 6, 2012

I have an excel file I need to read and update a column in an access table. But the data I need is in a combined format like AA-000, BB-001 etc.

I need to separate the values AA, BB as one column and 000,001 as another column. How do I write code to accomplish this in a module in VBA.

So the tasks I need to do is:

read in the Excel file
split the data in a column in to two columns
update the already existing access table with the data in the two new columns.

Split Form Column Headings (Names) In Access 2010

Feb 26, 2014

Is there a way of changing the column heading names on the split form portion of an access form. I tried changing them using a query to populate the form and changing the caption of each field in the query and that didn't work. I also tried adding a [Caption] at the design level of the table and that had no affect also. The split form seems to be displaying a portion of the actual field name or something like that.

Jul 3, 2014

I have a column that's called "Date" which stores values for begining to end date as 'Text' like: 070314-073114 So I need to split it to 2 columns that has the Start Date as 070314 and End Date as 073114?

This database is still in Microsoft Access, and eventually after cleaning it up, we will move it to SQL Server.

How To Split Up One Column With Multiple Rows Related To One Person Into A Query

Jul 1, 2013

I have an Access Database and I want to split up one column into multiple columns. The one column has multiple rows that relate to one person, so for instance I have the following:I am taking information from both tables and I want to create a query but I need to separate out the mother, father, and guardian with the names attached

So from the Child table :

Joe Smith Address Phone

The query that I created is from two tables, the child table and the family table: ( I used the dashes just for it to be easier to read)

------Child Table/PrimaryKey --------Family Table---------------------

First Name--- Last Name--- First Name--- Last Name--- Relationship
Joe ----------------Smith ----------Jane --------Doe-------------Mother
Joe ----------------Smith ----------John---------Smith---------- Father

So in this scenario I need to get the name of the second parent in another column....meaning have all the parents appear on the same line for this child, and each child there after..

So I need it to look like this:

------Child Table/PrimaryKey --------Family Table---------------------

First Name------ Last Name------ First Name------ Last Name------ Relationship------ 2First Name------2Last Name------2Relationship
Joe----------------Smith------------ Jane-------------- Doe------------- Mother-----------John---------------- Smith------------ Father

Access 2003 To Access 2007 Split Database

Mar 8, 2007

Hi All,

Background Info: I developed our main department's Access 2003 split database which is on a server for 15+ Users. I've now been given Access 2007 for development -- Users still have 2003. There are also 2 other smaller databases that are not split (.mdb).

Problem: In the split database, I've saved the Application .mdb as 2003, relinked and made a new .mde. But the Users still cannot open the database. (I did this in a copy until I figure out the nuances with 2007.) The 2 other unsplit databases can be saved as 2003 version and Users can open OK.

I'm grateful for any suggestions on working with Access 2007. I've been trying to tackle the ribbon which is a whole other question.

Access.LockFile.9, Even With Database Split

Jan 15, 2008

Hi there

I'm a bit confused with this.

I have a database which I've split and I've put both the frontend and the backend onto the network drive.

I'm pretty sure it's the case that the backend should be on the server and the copies of the frontend should be deployed to each of the computers that people are working with rather than each person working on the same frontend copy within the server. would this be right to say this?

At the moment there is two people working on the database and the third person cannot access the database because it's freezing and the 'access.lockfile.9' is showing on the third users computer for both the frontend and the backend.

Does anyone know how I can resolve this problem? is it a case of copying the frontend to each of the computers that the users are working with rather than them accessing the same frontend from the network drive.

Thankyou in advance for any help.

General :: Split Database Access FE And SQL Server BE

Mar 4, 2014

I am currently working on an application where I am using MS access as my FE and working with linked tables to SQL server BE. I also have a few temp tables within Access that are not linked but needed.

1. What are my steps into making this into a SPLIT DB? I am assume the BE will have my linked tables from SQL and the FE will have my temp tables and forms. Is this correct?
2. Once I split it, then I can make an .ACCDE file for a Mulit User environment, is this correct?

What other steps should I be made aware of?

Modules & VBA :: Securing Access 2010 Split Database?

Dec 9, 2013

I have a split db with tables in the back end and my forms, reports, code etc. in the front end.

I encrypted the back end with a password. That worked fine.

I deleted and relinked my tables to the encrypted back end. That worked fine as well.

I have a function that will disable the shift key bypass. If I run that in my front end db then I can't save it as an accde because I can't get to the HOME screen. If I save it as an accde first then I can't run my 'disable shift key bypass' function because I can't get to the modules!

How can I secure a split Access 2010 database so that the user cannot execute shift bypass on the front end or make any changes to the code?

Disappearing Data In Split Database - Access 2007

Jul 30, 2012

I work with an Access 2007 database that I split into a front end and back end. The back end holds all of the tables and the front end holds the queries, forms and reports. It is also a multi-user database, in that we have 14 people having access to the same back end. Each of the 14 people have their own front end. I have one main table in the back end listing clients and their individual ID numbers. That table has a One to Many relationship with several other tables, such as Case Notes and Authorizations, to name a couple.

Here's one of my problems: Sometimes data that is entered by a user will disappear.

Example 1: User creates a new record in the Authorizations form. Sometimes it is created by duplicating an existing record, sometimes it is completely new. User then prints a report from that new record, which looks like it has been saved. A couple minutes later, or a couple hours later, or maybe even the next day, user goes back into the database and cannot find the record that was previously created. At that time I look in the back end and cannot find the record either.

Example 2: User creates a new record in the Case Notes form on Day 1. These are always completely new records. User returns to the database on Day 2 and the new record sometimes does not show up in the form or in the back end table.

I cannot MAKE these things happen and they are sporadic, which makes it hard to diagnose, but why this was happening or if there was a way to retrieve the lost data.

Queries :: Access Split Zeros When Combine Fields Of A Table

Apr 25, 2014

I have a table "MansComps" which includes two fields, the "Index" field which contains a number, e.g "5" and the "Tabletype" field which contains a letter e.g "T". i have created a query based on this table, which combines these two fields and displays the result to a third field which I call "Components".

field: Index
1, 2, 3,....

field: Tabletype

field: "Component" has to be like this:
T00001, T00002,...

I have managed to combine the fields in my query using the expression:

Component: [Tabletype] & " " & [Index]

but the results appear without the leading zeros, like T1, T2..I have set my Index content to be a number and as a primary key and the Tabletype as a text. I also tried to change the format of Index to "00000" which works for the Index field separately but not for the Component field.Should I do something in the format of the Component field?

Split Access Database Doesn't Load Records In Form To Edit

Aug 23, 2011

I have an Access 2010 database that I have split. In the database I have a couple tables, forms and two reports. I have entered some data into one of the tables, but when I go to edit the data in the form the next time, there is no data (though I have verified that there is data in the table). Also, there are two reports that can pull the data without any problem.

Why the data wouldn't show up in the form.

Modules & VBA :: Record Locking Multi-users Over Network Split Database / Access 2007

Aug 5, 2015

I have designed a database which I intend to split for multi-users to access from one front end icon on a shared folder at work. I have designed a form bound to cmr record table and on it a subform to another table where cmrs activities will be saved. The form has buttons to and blank controls.

User can create a new activity entry by typing into the blank controls and pressing the save button which saves to the activity table. the edit button extracts a selected records details (selected on the subform) from the activity table and populates the blank field for a user to edit and then hit save to save changes. The delete button deletes a selected record from the activity table. I intend to have multi-users either accessing, viewing and a possibly editing the same customer at the same time. The simultaneous viewing is essential but the simultaneous editing, though not desired is inevitably going to occur.

What I would like to know is:

1. Can you lock an individual record in a table or does the whole table have to be locked. E.g If Colleague 1 is editing Cmr A's record in Table1 can he lock it so Colleague 2 can view and edit Cmr B's record in Table1

2.Can Colleague 1 access/read Cmr A's record in Table1 to retrieve details toe the form controls if Colleague 2 is viewing or editing Cmr A's record in Table1

3. If record lock is possible, how can I initiate it in my example code below.Edit activity record Code

Private Sub Edit_A_Click()
'Get Data to text box control
With Me.R_P_Data_P_Subfrm.Form
Me.txtrID = !rID
Me.txtrID.Tag = !rID
Me.txtrefNo = !refNo
Me.cmbrpc = !rPC

General :: Access 2010 Split Database Hyperlinks Not Working / When Copy Of Front End Moved

Jul 14, 2014

I have built an Access 2010 split database on my computer and it functions as built. My next step was to copy it to the server at work and test it. I discovered the tables had to be re-linked and so did that. As I have read in the Access World Forums in order to function as a multi-user database a copy of the front end must be placed on the individual workstation with the back end residing on the server, however the hyperlinks in the back end will not function when the copy on the workstation is run. I simply get an unable to open "filename" error pop-up. I can run the server copy and everything functions as built. I know that the hyperlinks require all the files to be in the same folder (relative vs. absolute), but if the back end contains all the hyperlinks why does the location of the front end seem to affect the operation of the back end?

Export Access Data Into Excel Column

My table has 3 fields:


I would like to export the recorsed to a template named MyTemplate. This template has a workbook named MyWorkbook.

Any idea or help? Thanks
