Assign numbers from 1 thru 9 to a set of records
i've been looking at autonumber function all day and I haven't found one that does it, maybe I'm looking for the wrong thing? it's not autonumber but called something else?
EDIT: I have 9 ROWS, not fields
Thank you for taking the time to report an issue.
What's wrong... Please write below.
For example, for a Document Control Number I need it to only assign starting with 00-700-06957 and going up. It will be a one user only program. I know I have to do this with DMAX butcan't figure out how or where to put it.
No. 1124 (ref A) contains 30 numbers (ref B) 01, 02, 03 ect up to 30 No. 1101: contains 60 numbers 01, 02, 03 up to 60 ect
No. 1411: contains 70 numbers 01, 02 up to 70
Ref B numbers can vary and need to be edited as and when needed.
I'm assuming that each second set of numbers (ref B) need to have individual unique identifiers , but how would I go about creating and mapping to (ref A) numbers?
Table1 has am ID field (numbers) and Table2 records have those ID numbers and they are identical.
what I want to do is to update the Table2 records which have the same IDs as my Table1 records and update (i.e modify ! ) their content with the content of the corresponding Table1 record (which has the same ID)
hope I explained well.
does some one know how could it be done ?
1 – 99997000
2 – 97561332
3 – 97568123
4 – 94568711
5 – 12345677
1 – 97561302
2 – 97561295
Than repeat this process another 20 times unit all the 100 numbers have a random value from 1 to 5.
What's the best way to do this? I was thinking of using a pop-up form but would like to hear of other methods.
I need to create a registeration database for a shooting sport competiton event that can either automatically assign each new registerant a target number when they are entered into the database, or allow me to enter different number if I wish.
What I am trying to do is get a list of the unused numbers so as to have an easier time of assigning those numbers to the main records.
When I pull up the form that is supposed to allow me to do this I get the list of records shown at times, at other times they are shown but after I start entering data they change to "#Deleted " or just come up with "#Deleted" being shown.
As these numbers are not already linked to any records, or the main records. what can be done to inable the form to show the unused numbers without having the fields go to "#Deleted"?
That's all fine, except, while importing I get the message:
Microsoft Access was not able to import all the data etc etc
The contents of fields in x records was deleted etc
When I look at these tables in excel, I can't see any reason why these particular records are causing a problem. They're all numbers, none are negative, they're not the longest numbers & as far as I can see there's no random spaces before or after them (certainly not when I open them in excel).
Has anyone else had the same problem? Are there any suggestions for how I can get around it? I need these numbers to be imported for the monthly calculations & outputs
