Moving and adding rows of data
I have a form with a dozen rows of data in the center of the form. Each row has seven columns: a label and four to six text boxes that display data from a table. I want to insert new rows with similar data at the top of these columns, moving the existing rows down.

How do I insert the desired rows without moving EVERYTHING on the formdown?


Access Report Design Requirement
I Need a help regarding the design of report in Access 2007.
I need to make a report , with Specified ROWS & COLUMNS filling A4 size page , whether there is no data in all the fileds.
I need to print the report in that format because it is the approved format from my client.
I know if there is sufficient data is there to fill the page, the ROWS & COLUMNS will come. But if I have less datas only to print, I need the page filled with the rows and columns blank.
If it is possible to design the report like this Kindly advise me


Two Remove those rows in a table which has already occured for a particular value
I have one table which consits of 5 columns . I have imported it in access database.

I have two columns say column A and D which consists of integer values and the values of the columns are say in the range 1 - 100 ( both the columns ). so there is a row say in column A value is 38 and in column D corresponding value is 37.

So now in the output there should not be any other record with having value 38 and 37 either in column A or D .ie. all those rows which contains these values other than this rows should be omitted.

Similarly for other rows and values also .I tried with the following query but didn't worked


Update Query Dependent on the month
I have two tables, one called Yearly which is the table that is going to be updated and has 3 columns for each month used, and a Initial table which has rows for each feeder and month, for example there are 4 rows for each name because of the year is split into 4 portions. The date is in the Initial table and is Field3 and comes in the form 01-15-2010. I was wondering how I can update those three columns depending on the month? If you can explain it in the design view that would be a lot better because I am still not too familiar with SQL


Column display question
In Access 2010, I am using a simple query to display several columns, but the order of the columns is not the same as I see in Design Mode. My helper was dragging and dropping columns around in design mode and I am wondering if that caused the problem.

If so, is there some place that will tell me the order of thecolumns when I run the query?


Insert Image in Access 2010 ?
I am use to using access 2003 but I recently switched to 2010. When I am in a report or form design view there is an icon to insert an image but it is greyed out. I went to the help section but we all know how much help those searches really are (none). How do I insert an image into a report in 2010?


Same contents in all rows
I am very new to Access and I tried to make a project database based on one of built-in templates. Then I entered design view to add new columns, but the new columns wont work properly. When I enter data in my new column, it automatically fills all rows in that column with the same data. The other columns from the template works fine.


Query Criteria
I have a query with six columns. The first column is item description and the next five columns are numeric fields. In some rows, certain numeric fields have zero and the other columns have some integers. In some rows all the five columns have have zeros.
Is it possible to hide the rows only where all the five numeric field collumns have zeros


Can I perform math on columns in Access?
I bet this has been asked b4 >

how can I perform basic math on Access db columns? I need to multiply a constant by the present column value ($).

the kicker is also only doing partial rows, I.e. some rows X .96, some rows x .99, etc.

if you could hi-lite rows/columns, then do math would be the ticket!

Between: how on earth could MS build access without this basic function? they want you to buy Excel and import/export!


System Requirements for Complex Large Queries
If I have 13 sheets linked from excel containing about 15,000-20,000 rows and 15ish columns. A 3 have about 35,000 rows, 1 has 85,00 rows and 12 columns, 10 columsn and 2 have 400,000 (2-3 columns) then I create multiple quries then from those quries make more quiries.

Can a 2.8ghz, i7 (not sandy) 4gb system handle this OR would adding more RAM help?

It's going really slow right now making the 1st query from the table with about 85,000 rows and 12 columns. Can't wait to combine that with the 20,000 row database with 15ish columns.


Combining some colums in an Access Table
I have a table in Access with 184,000 rows or records of data and 20 columns or field names. When looking at the table ten of the columns represent the identifying information for the data stored in the other ten columns.

I need to convert the last ten columns of data into one column with a second column added to identify the original field name. Then end result would be onecurrent record of data being converted into ten records with the original 10 columns of identifying data, a new column containing the original field name and a column for the data value from the original column identified in the new column.

I have been able to do this in Excel using a consolidation pivot table, un-checking the rows and columns then clicking on the final sum value to get a detailed list of the records. Unfortunately there still appears to be a cap because I get a message saying some of the data has been dropped after a little over a million rows.

I am using the 2010 version of Access and Excel.

This is the smaller table. I have several others that have up to 200 columns that need to be converted the same way.


Cumulated values
I have a table that goes like this

Name Day Amount
Mike 01/09/2010 +12
Mike 02/09/2010 +19
Mike 03/09/2010. -8
Mike 04/09/2010 -15
Mike 05/09/2010 +22
Paul 01/09/2010 +13
Paul 02/09/2010 -9
Paul 03/09/2010 -8
Paul 04/09/2010 -25
Paul 05/09/2010 +12

[Real table has about 500.000 records]
and I need to calculate, for each name, the cumulated amount and the day over day % amount increase, like this

Name Day Amount Cum %
Mike 01/09/2010 +12 +12 n/a
Mike 02/09/2010 +19 +31 +58% Mike 03/09/2010. -8 +27 -142%
Mike 04/09/2010 -15 +12 +87%
Mike 05/09/2010 +22 +34 -246%
Paul 01/09/2010 +13 +13 n/a
Paul 02/09/2010 -9 +4 -169%
Paul 03/09/2010 -8 -4 -11%
.and so on

How can I achieve this?

This is what I have done:
Make a crosstab query with name on rows, day on columns and amount as value.
This reduces the number of records to about 8000 thus allowing an export to excel.
.But I don't like it! I'm sure access can do this


Colouring Rows & Columns
Does anybody know if you can colour rows or columns in Access?

I know you can colour every-other row, but this isn't what I need to do. I need to be able to colour certain rows or columns


Access 2010 Insert Image Grayed out
Loaded up 2010 the other day and can't get the Insert image to activate under the Form Design Tools, Design section on the ribbon. It was easy to add images,

Found the the properties of the form a way to add a background image but it won't let me position it to where I want it.


Rows to columns
Rows to columns;

Additional columns displayed in access query output
Have a complex query joining multiple tables and queries. My issue is that I get additional columns when I run the query in access, while these columns are not even included in the query. My Access release is 2010.


Access 2010 auto insert from field above issue
I have just upgraded to office 2010 and I have noticed that in my Access Database, that it no longer auto inserts the next value in sequence in a column of records -

I am a basic user - no programming involved.

Basically, prior to Access 2010 if I had a entered information via a query, and one of the columns was a blank field. If I started the 1st record with say 101 and then cursored down to the same field in the next record and entered 102, a further scroll down would automatically add 103 and so forth.

Access 2010 does not perform this natively - and I have been using Access since Version 1 and it is the 1st time I have come across this.

I could not locate anything in the (very limited) Access Help and I cannot explain why this has changed.

Table import from Excel - only 52 columns??
I'm having problems importing a spreadsheet from Excel for a client.

They are using Access 2003 and Excel 2007, 3.5GB RAM
It works perfectly on my machine - Excel 2010 and Access 2007-2010, 4 GB RAM.

The file is imported in Excel 97-2003 format via a macro using the transferspreadsheet function.

It returns error 3274: "external table is not in the expected format."

There are 1488 rows and 71 columns in the spreadsheet and resulting table - in future additional columns may need to be added representing new critical data.

The interesting thing was that it worked fine on my machine. Then as a trial and error process I cut the file down to 26 columns and it worked fine. 52 columns also imported. But it gave up when there were 71 columns.

if 52 columns * 1488 rows =77,376 record worked, that's more than the magic number of 65,536. but it doesn't like 71*1488 = 105648 records. Is there a limit at 100,000, or some other number in between? I would have thought Access could hold/import much more than this. Am I missing something?


Update Query
Is there a trick to why the update query will not update my first row of daya, but all other rows work correctly? I have 12 update queries that update 12 columns on table 1. There are 20 rows per column. Rows 2-20 update perfectly on all 12 columns, but row one on each query does not--all the same value (dollars). I've verified that the update query and destination table names are exactly the same as well. I'm stumped
