Getting a #size error

Getting a #size error
Views: 340
I'm making a form. There are three subforms in it, all with unbound text boxes that calculate the sum of one of the columns. In the main form, there's then an unbound text box which sums those three subtotals.

It works fine as long as none of the values are null. If one's null I get a #type error, so I changed the formula to

=Nz([Labor_WIP subform].[Form]![LaborWIPSubtotal],0) Nz([Vehicle_WIP subform].[Form]![KMWIPSubtotal],0) Nz([EquipmentWIP subform].[Form]![EquipmentWIPSubotal],0)

But now I'm getting a #size error instead. Again, it works fine, as long as there are no null's in there, but a null throws it off.

Or what even causes a #size error?

when I tried to print again, I was given this run time error 2465.

After error database have less size

After error database have less size Icon
I'm using Access 2007. I was using the database and an error occurred. Not a programming error, but access error, the one that tells you to Send a Report.
"Backup and Send a Report".

So, after that I have in my folder database_backup.mdb with 9,75 Mb and database.mdb with 3,9 Mb. Seems to be the same exact database. Same number of records, etc, so why the size is so different

The query cannot be completed. Either the size of the query result is larger than the Icon
I am getting an error message: "The query cannot be completed. Either the size of the query result is larger than the maximum size of a database (2GB) or there is not enough temporarystorage space on the disk to store the query result"
There are a total of four querys in the file but the forth one is the only query that gives me the error message. I have been using this query for about two years and this is the first time this has happened.

No changes have been made to the query and I have plenty of room on my Tb hardrive.

Subform Foot Sum Resulting in #Error

Subform Foot Sum Resulting in #Error Icon
I had a working form but then my client asked for the form to be changed and with those changes my subform is not summing the totals in the footer properly. It is giving me a #Error message. My line total is working fine with the formula =([Size]*[Price])*[Qty] but when I enter =Sum(([Size]*[Price])*[Qty]) it is giving me the error.

I have included a Access 07 demo database to better view the issue.

Any idea how to set the page size to A3 without installing the printer.

I am using Access 2007, but the database I created is in 2003 format

Nutty error

Nutty error Icon
I've got a db in Access97 running on XP. It's 90Mb in size, with 100K records. Most of the data is in one table, with a few ancilliary lookup tables.

When I try and change the field size on any text fields, I get an odd error message on saving. It doesn't matter whether I'm increasing or decreasing the size.

"Microsoft Access can't change the data type.

There isn't enough Disk Space or Memory"

Disk space isn't a problem, there's 15gb free on a 27Gb network partition. And my PC is fine, it's a dual core with 2Gb.

If I reduce the size of the text field I get the message that data may be truncated as you would expect, and then the message. There's no way that reducing the size of a field should give that message.

The field isn't linked via a relationship to anything, it's a free text comment field.

I've tried backing up the Db and compacting, as that usually sorts weird errors out, but not this time

Make combo box update a field no matter which order you enter it?

Make combo box update a field no matter which order you enter it? Icon
I have found a little trip-up in my otherwise terrific database. When you go on a form to enter order details, you first choose a CLASS and then you choose a SIZE. When doing this in that order, a third combo box automatically populates with the item number (COMMODITY_NUM).

If you make an error and change the SIZE, the COMMODITY_NUM will update itself. However, if you made an error to the CLASS and go back to change it after you have already entered a size, the COMMODITY_NUM will not update, and it ends up storing the wrong information. Can someone tell mewhat to do to my code to fix it?

Import from excel to the BE db increases the db size alot

Import from excel to the BE db increases the db size alot Icon
We are using Access 2003 with a FE/BE application. FE size is 94M backend size is 384M. We import nightly from excel to the BE db which then increases the BE db size alot, so we compact/repair right after the import.

We have read that each db can be up to 2G. So we're not in trouble yet but would like to know:

1) Is there a way to stop the db inflation during the import?
2) What size of db should we start getting concerned over? 1G? 1.6G? other?
3) Will archiving data from the tables (then deleting it) help significantly to reduce the db size?
4) If yes to #3 - is there a way to find the tables causing the biggest useage
