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?
The field SECL DDI has the users phone number unfortunately over time these have been entered in different formats so there are 5 digits, 6 digits, 7 digits etc...Can I run a query that counts the number of digits in each filed and then tell me how many of each exist
I am working on an import spec from a text field and there is a field with 4 digits only. Is it possible to import this directly as a date field or will I need to import as number or text and then run a conversion to get it to a date field?

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 am currently working on an Access 2010 DB and as of now only one user has access to it and the user is wanting to be able to distribute it to other Managers for them to look at. The problem I am running into is I need a way to hide the first 5 digits of the SSN so the Managers are not able to see the entire number. How to do this? I've tried a combination of different formats, but none have been successful.
