It is not possible. Access only allows 255 fields per table and 32,768 tables in a single .mdb file. You should never let a table get that big. Creating small tables is the better option for best performance and manageability.

Hope this helps! : )

How to invoke a ms.access using parser


To parse a Text field that contains two words separated by a comma, follow these steps:
  1. Open any existing database.
  2. Create a table with the following structure: Table: Parse2Words
    ------------------
    Field Name: Empl
    Data Type: Text
  3. View the Parse2Words table in Datasheet view and type the following three records in the Empl field: Smith, John
    Callahan, Laura
    Fuller, Andrew
  4. Create the following query based on the Parse2Words table: Query: QueryTest
    ------------------------------------------------------------------
    Field: FirstName: Right$([Empl],Len([Empl])- InStr(1,[Empl],",")-1)
    Show: True
    Field: LastName: Left$([Empl],InStr(1,[Empl],",")-1)
    Show: True

    NOTE: You can modify the QueryTest query to account for spaces between the two parts in the Empl field. For example, if the text in the Empl field is "Smith,John" without spaces, remove the -1 from the FirstName field expression.
  5. Run the query. Note that the QueryTest query separates the text in the Empl field into the two fields below: FirstName LastName
    --------------------
    John Smith
    Laura Callahan
    Andrew Fuller

Can u plz mail me tha easiest way to use Ms Access, like Creating relationship, with the table, creating form, query etc.


In general you initiate this process by pressing the "Relationships" button on the MS Access toolbar. It is the button with three small boxes arranged in a triangle shape.

When it first comes up it will give you the option to add tables. You can add any set of tables including the possibility of adding one table more than once (you would do this if you wanted to create a relationship between fields in the same table).

Once you see the tables you're interested in, you simply drag the field from one table over a field in another table. The fields should be those that will define the relationship. Once done, you should see an Edit Relationships window. You can get back to the Edit Relationships window later by double clicking the line in the relationships window.

MS Access does a good job of figuring out the relationship type. For example, if you match a field in one table, that is not a key, with a primary key in another table, Access will make this a Many-to-One relationship.

This can become a very deep subject. Hope this at least gets you in the right direction.
