  • 2. VB6 applications with Access DB slow
    Several years ago I developed an Access 97 runtime application. I have rewritten this application using Visual Basic 6 with an Access 2003 database. When I run the VB application with the database on the same PC, the performance is good. When I move the database to a different PC on my two PC network, the performance is slow. This is not the case with the original Access 97 application; it performs fast regardless of where the database is located. Does anyone have a idea of why the vb application performance would be so much worse when the database in on a different PC? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
  • 3. Select and limit results in one table?
    Please Excuse the newbie question, but I have not been able to figure out how to do the following on my own. Assume I have a table called 'reviews' and in that table there are three columns: reviewDateTime, reviewID, and reviewItem. reviewItem is not unique, the other two are. What I want to do in pseudo-code is write a select query that will: for each unique reviewItem select 5 reviewID by reviewDateTime ascending Any ideas?

MS Access export to text file decimal round off problem

Postby brotherhou » Sun, 26 Oct 2003 07:13:54 GMT

It's found that when exporting a table/query to a text file, numbers
with decimals will be rounded off to 2 decimals (or 0 decimals
sometimes). Is there an explanation or setting for that?

2.Why Access export three decimal but in text file only two decimal

Can any Access 2003 gurus kindly please advice me on the reason why Access 
export table options exports to a text file involving number data type with 
three decimal places but resulting in only two decimal places in my text file 
content ? 
Is it a bug that causes the last decimal digit to be truncated or some 
settings that could help rectify this problem of mine ?

3.Decimal point rounded off when exporting.


I'm running into an issue when exporting a table to a .csv file. The table 
contains columns of numbers many of which contain a decimal point and three 
digits after the decimal. For example 5.123. The problem is that once the 
table has been exported to the .csv file the third number (the thousandth) 
has been rounded and I only get the hundredth (for example 5.12). Have tried 
Access 2002 and 2003 with the same results. The data type of the columns is 
Number, Field Size is Double, with Decimal Places set to Auto. Any 
suggestions? Thanks in advance for your help. 


4.Problems with DBase IV file exporting after converting frojm MS Access 97 to MS Access 2000

In our MS ACCESS 97 database that we have converted to a MS Access 2000
database.  In this application we transfer (TransferDataBase) a table  with
a memo field to DBase IV.  Our application uses the dbf and dbt files
generated to do some further manipulation.  The system works under MS Access
97 but does not under Ms Access 2000.

Is the dbf page size exported different in MS Access 2000?

Any other driver or parameter settings in MS Access that could be affecting

We also notice that the new MS Access transfer cmd produces a new file with
an MDX extension.  Can we get Access to work without this file?

Any help greatly appreciated.
