Shortcut to SQL Query (View)?

Shortcut to SQL Query (View)? Icon
Is there a keyboard shortcut to open a new query in SQL view?

I find myself encouraging carpal tunnel by:

There has GOT to be an easier way that this 6-step process to ~run a query~ in a _database_ . but I haven't run across it yet though

Create Property

Create Property Icon
Using CreateQueryDef() to create Queries. Using the following code.

With DB
Set qdfNew = .CreateQueryDef("NewQryDef", "SELECT * FROM Categories")

End With

Works Fine.

I am having a problem in creating a Property using the CreateProperty Method to create the property "Description" so I can add remarks in the "Description" property as to what the query is intended to do.

Is there anyone out there that can share information as to how to use the CreateProperty to add the Description property and then fill in a remark?

Changing the connection information on a linked QUERY in Access 2007

Changing the connection information on a linked QUERY in Access 2007 Icon
This is about linked queries, not linked tables. With no linked tables, the Linked Table Manager is disabled.

I know how to see the connection of a linked query, linked to SQL Server: ?CurrentDB.QueryDefs("create").Connect
SERVER=PRODSERVER;DATABASE=proddatabase;Trusted_Co nnection=Yes"
I need to change the server name in the connection.

I tried in the Immediate window
CurrentDB.QueryDefs("create").Connect = ".test server name."
but that did not change the connect property.

How do I change the connect property?

Avoiding duplication in a table.

Avoiding duplication in a table. Icon
I have an append query "QryInvoiceGrouped" and I have set its "top value" property to 1.

Therefore when I run this query it will append this 'top value' into the destination table "LedgerTxns".

but I need some setting in the table design grid to ensure this procedure cannot be doubled up by inadvertently running the append query twice.

A relevant unique field in the appended data is "OrderNo" and I need some function to insert into the "OrderNo" field property "ValidationRule"

inserting unicode control characters in CSV file

inserting unicode control characters in CSV file Icon
My Access project includes producing a comma-delimited (CSV) file for later presentation to an email program (LISTSERV Maestro). I'd like to be able to incorporate unicode control characters (e.g., CR/LF, etc) into the file to format the email. How do I do this? Here's the line that produces a record:

Print #1, EmailAddress & "," & sLastName & "," & sFirstName & "," & aCoursePrint(0) & "," & aCoursePrint(1) & "," & aCoursePrint(2) & "," & aCoursePrint(3) & "," & aCoursePrint(4) & "," & aCoursePrint(5)

For example, how could I insert a CR/LF after sFirstName and a Horizontal Tab (HT) before aCoursePrint(0)?

Caption Property & Queries

Caption Property & Queries Icon
How can I change the name of a Field in a query when the Caption Property has been set for the field in the underlying table? For example, table tblTest has a field named "Company Number". The Caption Property for this field has been set to "CompanyNbr". I want to create a query on this table and change the name of the field to "Co". I've tried "Co: [Company Number]", but the field name in the query is "CompanyNbr". I've tried "Co: [CompanyNbr]", but that results in a "Enter Parameter Value" dialog box for "CompanyNbr".

I realize I could simply delete the Caption. However, this is a database I receive weekly from an external source, and it has many fields in it.

This problem occurs in both Access 2003 &amp

Saving Query result to Table

Saving Query result to Table Icon
My code creates and opens a query. The original query was an append query and I need the same from this query or way to save into table "tblMODfnr".

All HOWTOs and helps I've read, do not show a way to do this and when I click "File" + "SaveAs" with the query open, table is not an option.

How do I get this done?

Do I need to change my SQL to "INSERT INTO" and then "DoCMD.RunSQL

Column Headings For Crosstab Query

Column Headings For Crosstab Query Icon
I am passing a sql statement for a crosstab query, as such, in VB Code:
"PIVOT myField IN ('Apple', 'Orange', 'Banana')

CurrentDb.QueryDefs("myQuery").SQL = strSQL

If I look at the ColumnHeading property in design, it's set to 'Apple', 'Orange', 'Banana'

The query in Access however is sorting as such. Banana, Orange, Total, Apple

Why isn't my PIVOT IN line sorting the column headings in the order I want!?!?

SQL Server Compatiblity "disabled" LIKE Operator

SQL Server Compatiblity "disabled" LIKE Operator Icon
The database I am working on will eventually be connected to SQL server. As an experiment I checked the box, "SQL Server Compatible Syntax (ANSI92)" under "Access Options", "Object Designers", "Query Design". That "disabled" the following line of code:

strCriteria01PVT = "Ucase(Trim(ProjectName)) like ""*" & UCase(Trim(Me.Text4)) & "*"""

Of course, unchecking the box restored the operation of the code.

Is there any benefit to selecting the option: "SQL Server Compatible Syntax (ANSI92)"?
