Switch () Function In Access

Switch Function
I am very new to using Access and am trying to use the Switch Function. I am have a large list of URL Domains and would like to categorize them. I have written:


The Function works as is, but as soon as I try to add in additional lines (in red), it no longer works for me, here is what it looks like:


Can someone give me some advice on what might be hapenning or a different option that may be better?

Switch Function
In Access, the Switch function evaluates a list of expressions and returns the corresponding value for the first expression in the list that is TRUE.

Switch Issue
I have a query which is using a switch function to perform a calculation. The problem is the result is #Num! and I can't figure out why. This is the function.

MPP: Switch([CurPt]>0,[CurMin]/[CurPt],[CurOd]>0,[CurMin]/[CurOd],[CurMin]=0,0)

. I've attached the DB. The query in question is qryProdSupport1.

Using SQL switch function MS Access
I need to know how to use SQL switch fuction in MS Acces. Simple SELECT query is like this but it is not working,

SELECT Switch(Habitat=T,"Terrestrial",Habitat=A,"Aquatic" ,Habitat=E,"Epiphytic")
FROM MainCharacteristics;

I need to display "Terrestrial" insted of "T" like wise,

Switch Function not working properly
I have the following switch function in a query.

DpRpPc: Switch(([DpNeIs]+[DpNeOs])=0,0,[DpNeOS]>0 And [DpNeIS]>0,(([DpNeIs]/2)+[DpNeOs])/[NeDpPts],[DpNeIs]>0 And [DpNeOs]=0,([DpNeIs]/2)/[NeDpPts],[DpNeOs]>0 And [DpNeIs]=0,[DpNeOs]/[NeDpPts])

The problem is if the DpNeIs=0 and DpNeOs=0 instead of displaying 0, it displays #Num

Using Case statements in a function
I was using Switch() in the query builder but my statement ended up being too long according to the error I got from Access. What I'm trying to do is assign a sales person to a client based on the clients first initial of his/her last name.

Now I am trying to create a function to take the field Alpha, and create the field SPerson using a function that uses a Case statement.

This is what I have thus far:

Use Select Case to Consolidate Switch Function
I need to consolidate 5 fields stored in a table into 29 different categories (eventually to be used in a cross-tab query to generate counts of each category). I'm limited in using switch and/ or iif statements because of the number of nested statements I would need.

Is there a way to do this using by creating a function and using select case? I'm not sure how to reference multiple fields in a table.
Here is an example of what I was originally thinking of...

Microsoft Access Runtime switches
I have an unsplit database which I want to run with Runtime on a computer that doesn't have Microsoft Access.

I am unable to get Microsoft Access Runtime working on the main networking computer (not mine) without the error message (offering switches for Runtime) coming up and then it comes up with a message saying something to the effect of there being an error and the application is closing down. I have used Runtime on several computers with no problem.

What are some of the likely reasons for this message coming up?
Is there a need to choose a switch?
If there is a need to choose a switch, which switch should I choose?
If there is a need to choose a switch, exactly where should I put it?
If there is no need to choose a switch, what should I do to fix the problem

SQL Switch Statement Question
I'm using a SWITCH statement in a SQL query in Access that applies different formulas based on the value of the Category field in the table. I need to head off a possible division by 0 error. Here's the code for that part of the SWITCH:

Category = ('Category3') AND PFM 1, (IMUnits*PFM)/(1-PFM),
Category = ('Category3') AND PFM = 1, 0

The idea being that if PFM = 1 it should skip the formula (because 1 - PFM would be 0, causing a division by 0 error) and just use 0 as the value. However, it seems to be ignoring the "AND PFM = 1" part and doing the division anyway because it still returns #ERROR for any row where PFM = 1.

Can I not use AND within a SWITCH condition? How can I make this work? Note thatthis is only part of the SWITCH statement, there are several more conditions that can occur, which is why I want to use SWITCH.

Using a function in form
Can someone help me with functions. I'm just starting to learn how to use vba with access.

I wrote simple function that calculates difference of two fields:

Public Function oduzimanje(IznosPlaanja As Double, CijenaTe
aja As Double) As Double oduzimanje = (CijenaTe
aja - IznosPlaanja) End Function

In form in which I would like to use this function , I made Text box and in it wrote

=oduzimanje([Iznos plaanja];[Cijena te

And when I switch to Form view in that text box instead of result I get

Built-In Functions Fundamentals
Once again, since Microsoft Access doesn't inherently provide a programming environment, it relies on logical functions to take care of this aspect. The Choose() function is one of those that can test a condition and provide alternatives. The Choose() function works like nested conditions. It tests for a condition and provides different outcomes depending on the result of the test.

Any way to quickly switch user in user-level security ?
I'm looking for a way to quickly switch user for a user-level secured .mdb, since it's going to be accessed on promiscuous computers by multiple operators. A close and restart function would be good enough, but the only one I have found doesn't support user-level protection

Switch combobox from multi back to single
I am making some requested changes to someones db and one of the requests is to switch a combo box from "allow multiple values" to NO. Get an error that this switch to multiple values can not be undone. It is a value list and they want to leave it that way.

Choose function through expression builder
I want an example of choose function to write in expression builder in access 2007. I have a size as 1/4,2/3,4/9 etc to be converted to ABC,DEF,GHI etc. I have nearly 40 entries so I think choose statement would do it . moreover I can't find switch statement in expression builder.

And I also wanna know other solutions for this. for example one could be to replace the text. or any other method to change the size to alphabetical grade

Switching off Access warning messages
My development DB uses action queries which generate Access warning when they are run. I would like to switch these warnings off (Tools | Options | Edit/Find | Record Changes and/orActionQueries) but the options seem to be at Access level rather than at individual DB level.

Is it possible to uncheck these options by macro/VB when my DB is started and switch them back to their previous state on exit from the DB?

VBA Rx to switch index of local temp table to update Multiple Items form sort order
I am looking for the Access / VBA way to do something I have done with Paradox / Object PAL. The scenario is as follows:

1) A query is run to cache some data from the SQL Server BE DB down to the local Access FE DB.
2) I would like to pre-define some indexes on various columns of the FE table.
3) Then I would like to have the header labels of a Multiple Items type form be clickable and switch the index the local temp table is sorted by.

I have not found documentation stating how to switch indexes on an Access table.

I would guess it is a straight forward call, then do my usual two calls to make sure the UI table grid is bound to the correct local temp table and then refresh to display the new sort order.

Right Function
This MSAccess tutorial explains how to use the Access Right function with syntax and examples. In Access, the Right function extracts a substring from a string starting from the right-most character.

Excel MATCH function: equivalent in Access
In the spreadsheet extract below the MATCH function is used to return the position of the smallest value that is greater than or equal to the first argument of the function:

Excel 2007

This is easy in Excel, but how is this achieved in Access? So if an Access file has just one table (like the one above), how would you write a select query that returns the same result as the Excel MATCH function is returning?

Calender to switch to the month
One of the control on the form is FldMon. It is a number field. There is a calender on the form. It is ActiveX Control: Calender0 Class is MSCAL.Calender.7
I am using Access 2003 and the tables are Access 2000 format

Now when the user updates the field FldMon with a number (1 to 12) I want the calender to switch the display to the corresponding month.
