Access Tip: More With Text Strings
By Richard Rost   Richard Rost on Twitter Richard Rost on LinkedIn Email Richard Rost   12 years ago

I added a new video to an existing question in the TIPS section. One of the most popular topics that I get asked about is how to manipulate data in text fields. Here's another example to take a look at:

More With Text Manipulation

It deals with Left, Right, InStr, and Trim some more.

Angel, what I'm saying is that you shouldn't have to change the stock price for 50 customers separately. You should have the customer information in one table, the stock information in a second table, and then a THIRD table to join them together. This way, you only have to change the stock price ONCE in the stock table.

Angel, first make sure you understand setting up proper tables and relationships, which I cover in Access 201 and 202. Then, you need to understand a three-way relationship with something called a JUNCTION table (or cross-reference table). This is how you can have two separate lists of things bound together by a third column. This is a little more advanced, and I cover it in Access 309. Read More...

Richard,
First of all thank you very much for your instructions a few weeks ago.  I am going to order Access 102, but before I do, I need to order an additional CD that has instructions regarding being able to change data that is the same in more than one place.  Let me give you an example. Remember I said that I have 100 clients that own about 20 plus or minus stocks each.  Some of these stocks are repeated in several clients accounts.  The stock names wouldn't change, but I will have to periodically change the price of the stock.  Is there a way or a CD that explains how to universally change the price of the "same" stock in everyone's account at the same time?
