  • 1. Data export form table broken
    Hi All, I have a table from which I want to export the data as a plain text file. I exported the data using the "Export" option and selected the comma as a separator and the " as the Text Qualifier. I have about 19800 records but a few hundred are broken over multiple lines. That is, the majority of records are exported correctly but some of them are split up into more than one line? For example this is a record: (selected via running a select from query) 134S United States Of America 11695 "Woodland Hills - Oxnard , 21550 Oxnard Street, Main Plaza" Woodland Hills California 91367 No No No No Site02720 Branch - Smith Barney & Private Bank When Access writes it out to a text file, the record is being split after the first occurrence of the word "Oxnard" and I'm not sure why this is happening. Any suggestions? Thanks, Sashi
  • 2. Find age of employee
    I have two fields in a query that hold dates. One is DOB, the other is HireDate. I want to add a field to a query that will take the employees DOB and based on their hire date, wil display their age in years and months at the time they were hired. I then need to add a query field to take the HireDate and TermDate (termination date) to show their length of tenure with the company. Thanks- Scott

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

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.
