Trouble recovering database : Auto numbering
After an unorthodox shut down of my computer (good old Windows error), I found out that my database file got damaged. Though I still have got access to the data, the file is useless. (The back-up was overwritten as well..)
Since the data aren't lost, I decided to make a new file, copying the entries. This worked well apart from following:
In the original database all entries in the tables were auto-numbered (= primary key), and those numbers were used to refer to other entries in other tables.
Now, in the new database I could only retain either the original numbering (but not as auto-numbered), or automatically renumber all entries (with catastrophical consequences for my database relations).
Is there a way to continue working the new database with the original data nd to let the computer continue the number-giving?

2 parts report
I need a report that will be cut into 2 parts. it need to look like two different reports.
I know how to use sections.
the main problem is restarting the page numbering on the page footer.
tried to put the page numbering on sub_reports but it seems the page footer is ignored when in sub_report

Calculating the missing number
I searched the archives and can't quite obtain the answer I am looking for.

I have a table that allows for unlimited entries, but it needs to have at least 2 entries per Person (already connected relationally in a one-to-many). I need a calculated control for the form that can state how many more entries the Person needs by counting the number of entries that are already in the table.

For example, PersonA has 1 entry and the control would state that 1 more is needed. However, Person B has 3 entries and the control would simply be blank.

I plan to use the control in both a form and also a report.

ColumnHistory to display on report
I am using this code to track and display historical entries entered into a "Comments" field everytime a user adds comments to a record. The field is a memo field with Append Only property set to Yes.

This code works fine when used as an unbound field on a form, but I keep getting an #Error when displaying it on a Report. My intent is to have the historical entries display on a report as well.

The report source is a query, so it is only returning the last entry made. Is there a better way to save historical entries with a date/time stamp for a record?

Code used:

re-autonumbers every year by access
My question is how to configure the automatic numbering perception Next
Where the first part is the fixed code
Part II on today's date as the manual described
The third part is automatic numbering which was increasing with the addition of each new record
With a very pertinent observation
Is that because the numbering of the beginning of (1), the first of each calendar year

Reporting Issue: Combine query
I have a report that combines 3 queries based on three tables which have one primary key in common (NCR Num). The only issue is that when I combine them together and run the report, I am getting ALL the entries from the tables, instead of just the entries that are associated with that one common primarykey value (NCR Num).

Relationships: Shows the three tables and how they relate

Report Layout: Shows how I have done up the report in design layout

Report Results: Shows the extra values that I do not want. Ex. This is the report for NCR 19 but I am getting information for NCR 20 and 21 in the Problem Section and NCR Employee Section

Data Entry Form: Just shows the data entry for that feeds entries into all three tables.

Auto Numbering in Ms-Access
Auto numbering is a handy little feature that will search out the next consecutive or random number for you, and as the name suggests, it does it automatically. It then adds that number into the field where the data type is set to 'AutoNumber'.
When talking about Microsoft Access, auto numbering should only be used when you want to create a primary key, but don't want it to have any real significance to it, other than the fact that it is unique.

Report filling prebuilt paper form
I have a paper form I scanned into Access and created a report for. I'm looking to use Access to populate the fields on the form. The name, social, etc. are all easy enough to populate but I'm having trouble coming up with a way to populate the middle of the form. There's 19 lines I need to populate with 19 possible entries to be input. The issue is trying to condense all entries to the top of the form.

On the picture I've attached I have the top of the form in the header and the bottom of the form in the footer for the report. The middle, lines 1 through 19 are in the Detail. I'd like to fill from the top down. I know it's possible, but for the life of me I can't seem to think of how to do it. Writer's block

DB will not give Unique ID's
When I open the form I only get 1 to 201 and when I add a new entry it starts numbering at 200, so eventually you will duplicate a number since there are actually 371 file entries.I uploaded a screen shot of the table view.when I add a new file look at the number it gives it!

Subfrom without records prevents Main From record results
As you will see if the subform has no entry then the report will not display any results for that record.
I have a DB with a two subform form and entries are likely to be in one or the other but not both.
Unless there are entries in both nothing shows on the report

Macro to check the gaps in the records numbering and fill
Can anyone let me know how to write a macro which checks the gaps in the records numbering and make it sequential. My Idea was that It should check for the missing numbering in that column. Then check for the highest number and change it to lowest Number+1 and go one incrementing the rows in a column.
There may be morw easiest ways to do this. Can anyone let me know how can we do this?

Auto Numbering 2 fields in an append query
I would like to import excel data and append it to an existing DB. In the past all data has been entered from the keyboard. Now a lot of what I get is in a form I can convert to an excel spreadsheet.

The difficulty I have is that there are 2 tables involved. One creates a auto batch number for a group of entries the other an auto number for each of the group entries. There is of course common data between the two tables and the link is an operator number.

Searching the lounge and the web the best I can work out is not to include the auto number fields in theappend query is there anything else I should know or do.

How to count all entries in a field
Please can somebody advise me on the best way to count entries in a field to display on a report. The entries will not be known in advance so I need something that initially grabs the unique entries from a field and then performs a count on each of them

Duplicate records showing on reports
Please can anyone advise me, I have a filter query that works fine on a form but when I try and create it as a report, I get a duplicate record/report for every entry on my subform.

i.e. Mr Joe Bloggs, (I have three entries in my subtable), these appear only appear once on my form but when I try and run the report I get a separate report for each entry from the subfrom i.e 3 duplicates

numbering results of query on form
I have a query that returns total scores in descending order. I present that on a form but I want my form to show the scoring position
1. ABC Company 100
2. DEF Company 90
3. GHI Company 80

How can I number each line on the form WITHOUT writing the results of the query to a temporary table. I want to avoid temporary tables as I want the user to update tick boxes on this form based on scores.

How do I get the form to count the number of rows and assign numbering. Is it something I can assign within the query rather than the form?

Reset page numbering for each record in a table
I have a report in Access 2010 that will produce printed output for each record (row) of information in a table. Each row can have more than 200 fields (columns), so one record may take a few pages to print.

My question is; is there a way to have the page numbering start over with each new record?
For example record 1 may have Page 1 of 2 and Page 2 of 2. while record 2 may have Page 1 of 3, Page 2 of 3 and Page 3 of 3, record 3 may have just Page 1 of 1, etc.

When form control is empty
I have two drop down menus on a form which are used to select a special date range (using sap week numbering) they are called:


these values are used in a query which is run when a user selects a report.

The question is, how do I alert the user who is trying to run a report from a button that they have not selected a date range i.e. the date range is null, or nothing has been selected, in english this would be - open form, check date range, oh its empty, tell the user, cancel report load.
