I have setup a list of investments, must like the Customer list in your Access Training.  When you select an investment you get a detail form for that investment.   There is sub form for updating the price of that investment.  Im trying to create an append query that will add the list of investments to the table so I can use one form to add the new price for each investment each month.  Looking for ideas

Custom AutoNumber Link

Hey Richard,

I'm looking to customize an autonumber for certain records in this format: (yyyy-xxxx) y = current year, x = sequential autonumber.

I can't seem to make it so when I click my "get autonumber" button to output it in exactly that format. For example, if I were to type "2020-0000" in the query expression field, it thinks I want to subtract 0 from 2020. Read More...

I would recommend having a CounterValue field in your table with a value starting at 0 and then counting up, and then a DateCreated field. Now you can DISPLAY the value in your forms, reports, etc. as

YEAR(DateCreated) & "-"

Carlos, this is one of those questions that is almost impossible to answer without being able to actually see your database. Can you post the VBA code in the button?

Custom Sorting Link

Hi Richard,

I came across an issue today. You may have addressed it in one of your classes but I haven't seen it yet (currently at Expert Class 3).

I made a table for a combobox. The field includes both letters and numbers, field type short text for now. This list contains sections of our vault so we can locate inventory, so they are simple like 1A, 1B, 1C - 11A, 11B, 11C. The sort goes wonky when we reach 10, but because there are letters, I can't change to a number type and because they are locations if I add leading 0s, it might confuse staff looking for things.

Not an easy one. The easy one is 01A, 01B, 02A, etc. You could separate the value into two fields in your database for data ENTRY which would make sorting work the way you want, but then concatenate the fields and print them (show them on the screen) without the leading zero.

I would add another field (Number) to the table that would  be used just for sorting in the combo box query. It does not need to show in the combo box.

Hi,
Is there a way to do statistics on a form. E.g. how many queries to the database is used, etc.

You can add whatever statistics to a form that you want. I put "total daily sales" on my main menu which is updated every minute so I can see what the status is. It's a simple DSUM that runs in my Timer event.

DailySales = DSUM("OrderTotal","OrderT","OrderDate=#" & Date() & "#")

Using DSUM, DLOOKUP, and DCOUNT you can pull up any stored values you want in your database.

My, Question was more about information about the behaviour of the implementation. E.g. how many queries is need for opening a form. This could help optimising the implementation.
