Homework Comment from Stephen Egan @ 11/24/2015
I am working on the homework for Expert 16.  I tried to run the OrderBackupMakeTableQ and received a message Calculated Columns are not allowed in Select Info statements.  I checked the fields in OrderT.  It looks like DayToShip is the problem as it is a calculated field. I am not sure how to handle this.  I don't think I can change is like we did with the Notes field in CustomerT.  I need a clue on how to handle this

Reply from Alex Hedley:

You can just remove that Field from your Query.

Sorry, I figured out what it was.  In my CustomerT for the State I have input mask = >L?? that was not transferred to the new table.

State CustomerT Comment from Clarice Barkhordarian @ 8/27/2015
The State in my CustomerT is 2 letters in Caps but in the new table it changes to lower case.  Why is that? and how can I change that?

Set Warnings Homework Comment from Michael @ 3/18/2015
Alex - Amazing! I opened a blank database and put a command button on a blank form. I was able to activate "Show All Actions." I wonder if the issue is that I started the PC database in Access 2007 and imported it into Access 2013? No worries. I plan to take all of the courses over again, so I'm sure it'll work when I start the DB from scratch in 2013. Thanks for your help! M.

Reply from Alex Hedley:

Maybe, 2007 was very buggy! Stay away if you can help it.

Set Warnings Homework Comment from Michael @ 3/16/2015
Hi Alex, No, there aren't any warnings that challenge me when I open the PC database. (I don't have to enable anything.)

Reply from Alex Hedley:

Can you try with a blank new database also in the trusted location.

Other options are reinstalling or making sure Access is up to date.

Set Warnings Homework Comment from Michael @ 3/15/2015
On my previous question about the Set Warnings, I wanted to let you know that I am using Access 2013 and I do have the database saved in a trusted location. Thanks again for your help.

Set Warnings Homework Comment from Michael @ 3/15/2015
Hi Richard/Alex,
Our homework assignment from Expert 15 was to turn the Set Warnings off, run the append query, run the delete query and then turn Set Warnings back on. I'm not sure why, but I cannot activate the "Show All Actions" command in the Macro Ribbon to adjust the Set Warnings. My database is saved in a trusted folder. I'm not having any luck finding help on the Internet - can you help me?

Reply from Alex Hedley:

Sounds like you've covered the necessary steps.
When you open the db is there a warning that you need to enable?

Broken Union Query Comment from Chris Thompson @ 2/8/2015
Around 5:00 you speak of the Union Query button not working or not sure. I have also found it is broken and did the same thing as you have shown - SQL only. The reason for my stating this is to also state that it is broken (or behaves the same) in both Access 2007 and 2010 as well.

Reply from Alex Hedley:

Thanks for confirming it in 2007/2010

I would like to copy multi fields from one table t Comment from Scar @ 9/18/2014
I would like to copy multi fields from one table to another table with the selection from only one combobox.  where can I find info on this.

Reply from Richard Rost:

What do you mean by "copy fields?" Are you trying to select values in one list box and copy them over to a second list box?

Junction Table Comment from Richard W @ 8/26/2014
Primary Key.  I figured it out.  In the original tables, one was a Primary Key but in the junction table it was not.  I got it done.

Junction Table Comment from Richard Wilson @ 8/22/2014
I wrote yesterday a question about making a junction table.  I have the data I need to join in an existing table, BUT the ID number for one set of the data is the principal key.  I need to change that ID number.  Seems I can make a new table with the data I need, add a new Principal Key and then alter the ID's in the new table that were the Principal Key in the existing table.  ?

Reply from Richard Rost:

What do you mean by "Principal Key?" Is this a PRIMARY KEY or a FOREIGN KEY?

macro that opens a make table query Comment from Robert Jacoby @ 8/13/2014
Time Index approx 4:40

You explain how to create a macro to run queries. However I am trying to create a macro  that opens  a make table query in design view and then open the dialog box so I can select another data base in which to create a new table. Or even better automatically select the name of the data base referenced in a form.

I cannot seem to find a command to do so.

Is this something with which you can help me?
