Find missing number in 2 column sequence
I have a table that has a beginning and an ending column for a serial number range. I want to see if theres a way to know if a number is skipped in the sequence. I have searched for HOURS trying to find a solution to apply to my problem but none talked about a 2 column sequence.

so example would be Table1
Beg End
etc.

so is there a way to have access tell me that 13, 18, 19, and 20 is missing from this range


ID code not autonumber
I want to create an (8) digit number such as 20121234 (1st four are the year and the last four digits would be an auto number) how would I go about doing this. I am a new user to Access and I have built my (4) main tables and before I go create my forms sheets ect I want to get my "id" column creating the correct number sequence.


Generating Sequence Numbers - Incrementation Question
I've got a list of over 2,000 unique ID's. These ID's are associated with specific projects. Trying to figure out a quick and easy way to generate sequence numbers that correspond with each ID.

The number of sequence numbers per unique ID will vary based on individual project capacity. Some ID's will have as few as 25 sequence numbers associated some as many as 100. Wouldresult in the following outcome if sequence #'s increment by 33.

Ex.
Where Unique ID = 1234500123; and Project Capacity = 25
Beginning with number 1234500123
Resulting Sequence Numbers: 1234500123, 1234500156, 1234500189, 1234500222, etc… ending with 1234500948

Where Unique ID = 1234500123; and Project Capacity = 100
Beginning with number 1234500123
Resulting Sequence Numbers: 1234500123, 1234500156, 1234500189, 1234500222, etc… ending with 1234503423

Ideally I'd be able take my existing table, look at all 2,000 plus values in the Unique ID column compare them to the Project Capacity column and spit out anew table of incremented sequence numbers.


Reverse Sequence of Numbers
I think the best way for me to ask the question is to explain the scenerio. Data is linked to an external source. Each time an event occurs (like a payday lets say), a new record is created and it is assigned a sequence number. (For argument sake, there is no set day or date that payday falls on.) Someone paid by the company two times would have two records, the first payday would be sequence # 1 and the second payday sequence # 2. Someone with the company multiple years could have 100 records or more. I am trying to isolate the highest sequence number for each employee. The highest number would indicate the latest event. I have utilized other software in the past and used a rank function which would reverse the numbers and then I could just filter for sequence = 1. Is there a way for me to do this in access


Appending Records with a desired auto number in a table with Auto Number
Here is my issue. In a table with an Auto Number index some records have been deleted. I have been able to recreate them along with their original auto number. The problem is that I do not know how to append these records forcing the original auto number. I have tried changing the auto number field to a number field in the table, this works except I cannot change it back to auto number.

I am sure Im not the first with this question or issue. I did search through a couple hundred entries about auto number before I posted this question


Save record sequence number from form
I posted this earlier but it never appeared.
I have a continuous form that displays 4 fields from a table. The form also has sort buttons which sorts the records in the form based on the sort selected. My table also has a field called “sequence number”. Based on the sort that is selected I would like to save the record sequence number for each record based on the order that the records appear in the form. In other words the record that appears first in the form would have a sequence number of 1 stored for that record in the table, the second record would have a sequence number of 2, etc.


Converting time to decimal number
I need to convert time to a decimal number after I insert it. I have found a function to do that in a book.
Code:

Function IndT(T As Date) As Single
IndT = T * 24
End Function
Sub ConvertTime()
MsgBox IndT([fieldname])
End Sub


It works but it is not what I really need. I have a number field in a table and I want time to change to decimal number after I inset the time (for example 3:45 to 3,75). I don't need message box I need those numbers inset to the table.


How to get the last value of an AutoNumber Column
I've a table that has 3 Columns:

Column A : Type - Auto Number.

Column B : Type - String.

Column C : Type - String.

The Current Data in the table is as follows:

1, "USA","Florida"
2, "USA, "Michigan"
3, "USA", "New York"

If a add new Row, the Column A, being Auto Number, takes my Count to 4 i.e.

4, "USA", "Texas"

Suppose I've deleted Row 3 and Row 4. The table data is now:

1, "USA","Florida"
2, "USA, "Michigan"

If I try to add a new Row, the Column A, being Auto Number, takes my Count to 5 (instead of 3). Its OK as Auto Number, by default, will follow this numbering.

My question is: Is there a way to programmatically figure out that my row is going to get added at 5, before I actually insert a row and figure it out by myself using @@Identity

Auto Sequence is Off
We've created a access database in my office and used it for over 5 years to enter and track billing entries. Recently we had an issue appending a large amount of data from excel and the database was corrupted. We had IT restore the database to it's state before the appending. Now whenever we try to manually enter a transaction, the auto sequence automatically starts at a few hundred numbers higher. When searching for the transaction numbers that are missing, nothing shows up. Does anyone know how to reset the auto sequencing in Microsoft Access


Crosstab Queries - Year wise query in Sequence without Skipping Years having no Data!
Please help me in making a dynamic query with yearwise column heading, I want to show the column years in sequence, if there is no data for any year ms-access is skipping that year from the query column heading, I want ms-access to don't disturb the sequence and show the column head with blank data (if there is no data).


Combobox inserts new records to my querry
I built up a subform in a form which contains a combobox (ranking) to choose different records (good [auto-number 1], bad [auto-number 2], unknown [auto-number 3]).
In the property sheet I chose Limit To List "Yes".
I can only add the words good, bad or unknown, which was my goal. But access creates new records into my querry. When I chose unknown it saves unknown [auto-number 4]. So the next time I can choose between good [auto-number 1], bad [auto-number 2], unknown [auto-number 3] and unknown [auto-number 4].
Therefore I save the information but I cannot use it in the end because every record has a different auto-number.
Can someone please help me, I already spend 6h try and research on the internet but I could not find an answer

Prefilling next number in sequence
If I have a field that is just set up as a number field, is there specific code that will generate the next number in sequence?

Each of my customers in my customers have an ID. This field is a number field. On one of my forms, I have all my customers listed in a combo box for entering a sale. When I go to select the customer, I've created a Modal Dialog popup form to enter the information about a new customer that doesn't yet exist. Is there a way to automatically prefill the ID field with the next number in sequence?

Let's say I have 25 customers. I enter a customer in my combo box that hasn't been added yet, so my new form pops up. As it pops up, I want it to prefill the ID field with the number 26.the next number in sequence.


Dynamic Headings on Multi Column Report
I have a 4 column, simple report listing inventory items in a down, then across layout. There are only three data elements, category, item number, description, sorted in category then item number sequence.

There are a number of items in each category. Each of the 4 columns is a column with the three data elements, above each other. For example:


Auto Increment by 1 Letter
I have created a table and form for our company to keep track of incoming inventory. Being that we work with metals, each piece that comes in is assigned
a unique 3 letter value. We started with A. What I need to know is once I enter the item we are receiving is there a way for it to automatically go to the
next sequence of letters. Example, yesterday we received in. The last series of letters I used was BHV. when I receive in, I want the product to automatically be assigned BHW and then BHX and so on. After I use BHZ my next sequence would be BIA. Ultimately when I get to BZZ, my next sequence would be CAA and so on.


Auto generate reference number
I have a question about the auto-generate number feature in access tables.

I want to paste records that have unique reference numbers from an excel sheet into my access data table.

However when I do this Access changes the reference numbers as the relevant column in the table automatically generates a number series.

Is there any way of turning off this auto generate feature?

Generating custom sequence numbers
I found this code here on the forums and modified it a bit to generate a specific result format: 120829-090
Ex. two digit year, two digit month, two digit day, -, PO number 09, and finally individual PO number (maximum is 9, including 0. So 10 records total a day.)

The sequence generated will be 090 through 099. However, when I reach 099 and add a new record it increments the next number to 0910.

I need the sequence to end at 099 with an if statement that states if when creating a new record, if number 120829-099 exists then undo new record, and display an error msg box.
