Creating a Q&A Database

Creating a Q&A Database
Views: 5
I am competent with most things computer wise but have never delved into the Access world and to be honest, I'm not 100% sure the answer will even be Access as I have only been told this program will be suitable. But. I shall pose my query anyway.

I work in a call centre in England and am trying to create a Q&A Database. I have tried looking online but can't seem to find what I am looking for.

The idea is - I want the agents in the call centre to be able to type key words or phrases in and answers will be presented. Simple concept really but can't seem to manage it.

Creating multifunctional database

Creating  multifunctional database Icon
being away from it for several years. I have been tasked with creating databases to track skills, certifications and licenses for all of our employees. I am in the middle of creating the Skills database for our employees but I was wondering if I could put all of what we are looking to track into one database. Everything would tie back to the employee ID. I would like to have a form that would contain only the Employee Info (Emp ID, Emp Name & Craft Code) and then have 3 command buttons that would link to the different tables for each of the criteria that we are tracking

Creating User Profiles in Access 2007

Creating User Profiles in Access 2007 Icon
Let me start out by saying that I am not the least bit concerned with securing my database. However, because user profiles are a part of security (or at least that is the extent of my limited understanding of them) I am posting in this subform.

All I want is for access to recognize the name of the person who is currently using the database. The reason is that I have a memo section that is used for storing notes made by the user. Each entry is stamped with VBA code as follows:

Me.Memo = Me.Memo.Value & vbCrLf & CurrentUser() & ": " & Me.Text145.Value & " - at " & Now() & " : "

Thus, I just want the memo section to properly identify the person - or currentuser() - leaving notes.

I have created a basic login screen using [LINK]. If only I could somehow tell VBA to recognize the name of the person who has logged on.

How to remove &NBSP from my form

How to remove &NBSP from my form Icon
My form shows &NBSP and &AMP although the data looks fine in the database as a memo field (rich text).

1.Eliminate funding for Web Q&A on the city website.
2. Eliminate the citizen and visitor tracking software that is interfaced with the INFO database.  This software is used  for questions and inquiries for city services. With the upgrades to the city's new website, Web Q&A is no longer a compatable tool.

How do I fix this in my form? It is also affects all my reports.

SQL Running Behind the Scenes Icon
I inherited a database (yet again) and whenever the form loads, I get
Run time error 9
Subscript Out of Range

On this line of SQL

SqlValues = SqlValues & "," & ID(i) & ",'" & CtcName(i) & "','" & Title(i) & "','" & Address(i) & "','" & Phone(i) & "','" & Interviewed(i) & "','" & DM(i) & "'"

Can someone tell what the issue is or if you need further let me know what else I would need to display

Risk/Issues Database

Risk/Issues Database Icon
I am creating a Risk/Issues database for a construction company I work for. Within this database, there is a table for Issues, RFIs, & Change Orders so that each Project logs the aboverelated information and creates the associated reports.

I have most of the database constructed without too many issues but have came across one thing that I can't seem to find or get established.

In theory, Each RFI requires an Issue but an Issue may have more than one RFI and Each CO also requires an Issue. Issues may not always have an RFI or CO.

I would like to have a way of ensuring that each new RFI &/or CO is assigned to an Issue.

Former marine wasnt made to design access

Former marine wasnt made to design access Icon
So I volunteer for Veterans village of San Diego which help veterans. Being a former Marine infantryman myself I am little out of my element creating an access database. I have posted the link to Google docs to show what I have so far. Ive done a majority of the graphical layout and basic programming but some of the more complex features I have no idea how to go about doing. If any one has some free time and expertise in access I would be very appreciative for any help you could lend. Thanks

Database is here, its a little big sorry: TYtMjc5NzYyYmNlMzQz&amp;hl=en"> TYtMjc5NzYyYmNlMzQz&hl=en</a&gt

Formatting an email

Formatting an email Icon
Ive been using the outlook.application method to email results from various queries like this:

.Body = "1)" & Chr(13) & Chr(13) _
& s1 & Chr(13) _
& "2)" & Chr(13) & Chr(13) _
& s2 & Chr(13) & Chr(13) _
& "3)" & Chr(13) & Chr(13) _
& s3 & Chr(13) & Chr(13) _
& "4)" & Chr(13) & Chr(13) _
& s4 & Chr(13) _
& "5)" & Chr(13) & Chr(13) _
& s5 & Chr(13) & Chr(13) _
& "6)" & Chr(13) & Chr(13) _
& s6

It works perfectly but I would rather the results be shown in tables, like when you copy and paste selected cells from a select query into an email.

Access 2010 is very useful tool for designing database and provides intermediate-level data mining. It has done and continues to do wonders especially when it comes to managing, creating and most importantly making use of Relational Database up to its acme. This post will cover how relationships and queries interconnect to make database more dynamic.
