20 Most Recent Microsoft Office Access 2003 (077-02871) for PC Questions & Answers

The easiest and fastest way to learn the basics of any of the main office programs is with multimedia tutorials. Ranging 5-10 times faster than text. More can be learned in this way in a shorter time.
In regards to VBA, if you only want to work with macros and scripts within an application, a minimal knowlege is all that is necessary. If you are wanting to use VBA across applications, you will need a little more depth of knowlege (at least in my case) is needed. May I suggest Microsoft's 'inside out' series of books. It looks intimidating but you only need the section you are studying.
There is something special about getting tutorials and learning information from the actual program manufacturer. They are the authority and free.
Okay, my suggestion is to first go to Microsofts website and view the tutorials available for your application: MS Office tutorials
Then, if you find your thirst for knowledge unquenched:
  • Third party online tutorials are often quite good. But often the depth knowledge like VBA will turn into a 'tips and tricks' rather than the foundation needed.
  • Get some of the multimedia learning, all it takes is a few 20 minute segments. Titles like Mastering Access 2003 by Magic Media, includes VBA.
Learning some of these applications can be very daunting. It is estimated that your typical user will use only around 10% of the programs capabilities. And they keep adding capabilities! Anyway start easy and work your way up to the complexity you want.
For the other users that have similiar problems, the real answer is to learn the above. But to convert numbers to words you need to redefine the field as text, and enter numbers.
And if you are setting up a search criteria for multiple text boxes using IF condition, it depends on what you are comparing. If you are comparing to a set quantity it would look something like this: IF field/text box = "Fixya" THEN performed action. Endif. If you are comparing two or more text boxes to each other it may look something like this: IF field/textboxA = fieldtextboxB or fieldtextboxC THEN action Else action. Endif

Hope this helps!

see if the LDB file still exist and delete it...

Whenever you open an Access database, a file with the same name as the database and an extension of LDB will be opened automatically. For example if you open Northwind.mdb in the samples directory of your Access/Office installation, a file called Northwind.ldb will be generated. This new file keeps track of users and the objects that require some form of locking in the database. When all users have exited gracefully from the database, the LDB file is closed down and deleted.

accdb extentions must be opened with 2007 or later. 2007 and up will open ext.mdb. 2007-2010 will convert an mdb to accdb. 2013 will not convert but will open them.

Have you reached resolution yet? If not I would be happy to help otherwise, I would be interested to know what happened. It sounds like you need to call the date (today) for the appropriate balance to come in automatically - assuming you have a table holding this data. Thanks for rating FixYa!

check the folder type it may be just set for read only. the administrator has the option on the interface to see if the database is read only for others or if it is editable.

First, make sure that the tables that you are using have some sort of Primary Key so that the correct records can be linked.

Next, choose 'Tools' -> 'Relationships' from the top menu.

Add the tables for which you want to link together. Drag the correct field from one table to the next table. A popup window should appear.

In the window that appears, choose the 'Enforce Referential Integrity' and 'Cascade Update Related Records' options.

Now, whenever you change the field in one of those tables, the corresponding filed in the other table should change as well.

Can't be done.

Access will only put the data into one worksheet. It is very picky when it comes to exporting data into an Excel spreadsheet.

There are two ways to get around it:

1) You can export the data from Access into two files. One for the the first worksheet and another file for the second workshet.

2) You can import everything into one spreadsheet and build a macro into Excel to cut the information one spreadsheet and paste it into the other if this is a redundant task to do all the time.

Hope that helps you out.

I don't really understand your problem. Is it a table you cannot see? or a Query? You may not be able to see some things unless you have a default printer set up on your computer. Access is weird about that. Please get back to me with more specifics. Thanks!

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

The easiest way to achieve your goal, would be to use a second interfacing application to hand the database operations. I suggest VisualBasic.
