Alphanumeric Grouping
By Richard Rost   Richard Rost on Twitter Richard Rost on LinkedIn Email Richard Rost   4 months ago

Alphanumeric Grouping with the DMAX Function. 


 S  M  L  XL  FS  Join Now

Have you ever wanted to group records alphanumerically? For example, you've got three groups set up, and you want to put people into them based on their last name. A-M goes in Group 1. N-R goes in Group 2. S-Z goes in Group 3. In this lesson I will teach you how to do just that using the DMAX function.

Nancy from Swanton, Maryland (a Gold Member) asks: I have created a database containing words from a printed dictionary. I have entered in the first word that appears on each page, and the page number. I would like to be able to search for any word, and have the database tell me what page it should appear on. For example, if page 5 starts with Elephant, and page 6 starts with Gorilla, if I search for Fox I want the database to tell me it should be on page 5.

Members

I'll show you how to create a table to store all of the words on each page. If the word exists, it will open a form and jump to the right page, and to the word on that page. If it doesn't exist, you'll be prompted to add it. Plus lots more tips!
