Reduce Multiple Records To One

Jun 28, 2007


I hope you donít mind my using this forum as a learning tool. I am running an Access 2007 database. I am trying to create a query from 3 tables:
TblTrainingPrograms containing the following fields
Program Number (unique value)
Program Title
Program Date

TblInstructors with these fields
InstructorName, address, etc.

TblInstructorProgram with the fields
ProgramNumber(linking this instructor to a particular training)
InstructorNumber(in the case of multiple instructors for the same training, the user may add new records and enter ď1Ē, ď2Ē or ď3Ē here)

I need to run a query that will display even multiple instructor programs in one record, so that Instructor# 2 will appear in another field in the same record rather than having 2 or three records displayed in the datasheet view. Iíve tried several combinations, but when there is only one instructor, the Program does not appear in the query results.
I donít really know a lot about SQL, but Iím hoping there might be a way to do this that way. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

How To Reduce The Size Of The MS Access

Oct 4, 2005


I have one problem.

If I create many many tables, then delete them, then create new tables, so on. The size of the MS Access file will become large.

So, how can I reduce the size of the file? Even though I delete the tables, the size will NOT become less, so how to reduce the size of the file?

Please let me know, thanks a lot. Thanks.

Reduce Decimal Places WITHOUT Rounding

Feb 15, 2006

Hey everyone! Hopefully, someone can help me with this. I've searched the forum and can't find anything on it.

I want to take a number and reduce the number of decimal places from 4 to 3 WITHOUT rounding it. Just chop off that 4th number...I don't care about it.


243.4586 = 243.458
22.0541 = 22.054
5.8577 = 5.857
1,587.2556 = 1,587.255

Seeing as how the numbers can be in the 10's, 100's, and 1000's, I can't just use the LEFT function. :D That, of course, would be too easy.

Suggestions? Solutions?

Thanks in advance!

I have a form with 15 unbound text boxes (daily temperatures) and what I am trying to do after entering the temperatures into the text boxes the user clicks an add button which will add 15 new records into the temperature table

the code I have started off with is

which adds 1 successfully however if i repeat the code above for all 15 this Im assumming will create a potential bottleneck and slow the system down

Queries :: How To Count Records Based On Multiple Criteria From Multiple Tables

Jan 4, 2014

I need to count records based on multiple criteria from two different tables. I have two tables (i.e. "tblTasks" and "tblTaskHistory"). The tables have a one-to-many relationship based on the "TaskID" field. "tblTasks" has a field called "AssignedTo" and "tblTaskHistory" has a field called "TaskStatus". I need to know how many tasks have been "reopened", the "reopened" status is located in the "TaskStatus" field in "tblTaskHistory". I need this count against a unique listing of employees which can be found in the "AssignedTo" field in "tblTasks".

Combining Multiple Tables With Multiple Records

Jul 16, 2007

Here is the situation that I'm hoping that someone can help me with. I'm working with a database that tracks our condo units - from prospect coming into the system until we close them as a buyer. All the units are setup in the system so a salesperson will select from the units available. All that works fine when I create reports. The problem is trying to get the parking and storage on the same reports with the unit information. The problem is that there are multiple parking/storage units "attached" to a single unit and I cannot figure out how to get them to all appear on a single row of the report. As an example -

I have units A, B, C
Parking units p1,p2,p3,p4,p5,p6
Storage units s1,s2,s3.

Unit A uses parking units p1, p2, p5 and storage unit s2.

Unit B uses parking unit p3 and storage unit s1.

Unit C uses parking unit p4, p6 and storage unit s3.

How do I write a query/report that would show:

Unit Parking Storage
Unit A p1, p2, p5 s2
Unit B p3 s1
Unit C p4,p6 s3

Queries :: Put Multiple Records In Multiple Columns

Jul 31, 2013

I have three tables. Risk, Names and RiskAndNamesJunction table. I have the junction table because I have many to many relation (meaning many people can be connected to one risk and many risks can be connected to one people).

The problem is that If I make a query to show the people related to the risks, if there are many people for one risk then it will put the people in different rows. Meaning that for risk 2 I will have three rows, because there are three people connected to this rows. See the attached file!

What I would like to do is to have a query which (in case there are more than one risk owners) puts the second name in another column, the third name in another column and so on. So I will have only one row per risks.

The attached file is a dummy file, so there are only maximum three names per risk. In the real file the maximum is five names per risk. So I am talking about no more then five extra columns. (So I am talking about a query which would put the first finding in the first extra column, then the second item in the second and so on till five. It there is no third or fourth or fifht item then the columns remain blank).

Unfortunately I have to do this because our mother company works with excel and they are sticking to this format in excel.

See the attached file ....

Query To List Multiple Records In A List From Multiple Queries

Jul 11, 2013

I have a DB where you there's 5 tables all linked together by one project ID

tables below

Project , Staff, Asset, allowances, travel, mark up

What I can do is create a new project, then add records to each of the other tables on what different items I require,

i.e. I create a new project - called project one, in the project table I create a record stating, name, time scale, client and location, then I add different records to each of the other tables on what I require all linked to the same project ID. (probably not explained that too well)

Now I want to create a query that lists all the requirements one after the other this will make it easier to create reports and to calculate costing's.

At the moment I have made 5 different queries listing all the data, then have one report containing 5 sub reports to display the data, no this does work.

Re-using 1 Value In Multiple Records

Jun 27, 2005

I am trying to manage a contract price from month to month. Every month, some portion (or none) of the total contract will be completed. I have a form in which the user enters 'Amt Completed this Pay Period.' Then the 'Total Completed To Date' is automatically calculated by adding the 'Amt Completed this Pay Period' to the 'Previously Completed Amt.' I would then like to use the new 'Total Completed to Date' as the next months 'Previously Completed Amt.'

Basically, I am trying to calculate a value in a form for one entry, and then passing that value to another entry to use. Does anyone know how I would pass this info along?

VBA Across Multiple Records

Mar 28, 2012

I have drafted a simple VBA code in a form button that takes the result calculated in a query and pastes the result into a table. I have attached my test database to illistrate..In my attached database, i have a list of 5 records, i am wanting to push the calculation button have all the records updated with the result that is calculated in the query in 1 go.

As it stands right now i have to do it one at a time per record, which is not preferable when there are potentially hundreds or thousands of lines. I am wanting to do this because i want to reduce my reliance on calculated cells in forms and reports where i have to draft long formulae across 3 separate queries to get the result i am looking for.

Multiple Selection Of Records

Dec 17, 2005

I'm building a database for a realtor friend. Part of his job is keeping track of where his clients want to live. I have added a field named "Areas". I need to populate that field with names of cities where his clients want to buy thier house. Sometimes there are only a couple of cities. Other times there could be more then 10. I don't want him to type these cities in. He is not a good typer, either am I, and he is prone to abbreviations and typos. Garbage in garbage out. I would like to provide him a drop down list, or something like that, of all the cities or areas and have him select each area and then either hit a command button or copy/paste it to that text box. Either way will work. The command button would be nifty. The result would give him the option of doing a form filter and being able to filter that text box for ex: "atlanta" and "syracuse". He then could cue these people when he has a property come available in either one of those cities.

I DON'T understand VBA code. I don't know how to write it or where to put it.

I tried to search this site and I could not find any threads like this, to my amazement. If there is a similiar post out there and I could not find it I apologize in advance.
