  • 1. Two Linked Table Problem
    Hi all, I have encountered two problems when using linked tables; the linked table is connected to SQL server 2000. 1) How can I add the N prefix of a string constant in a query in order to search for double byte characters? I found that the search returns no result if no N prefix is added. If I use passthrough query, it works. Any suggestion if I do want an access select query instead of passthrough query in this case? 2) There will be a table locks in the SQL server if I browse a link table directly. Is there any possible way such that the cursor if at client side instead of server side so that no table is locked if I browse a table? Thx!!
  • 2. Tab Sequence
    am working on a form that has Header and Detail sections. I could not make the cursor move to the Detail section after completing the Header section (using TAB key). The cursor goes back at the first cell of the Header section. I still have to use the mouse to click on the Detail section. How do I automatically move using the Tab key to the Detail section after completing the Header? Thanks.
  • 3. Printer Config
    I have a customer that is using Access 2000 and they have some reports that print on Legal paper. Of course on different computers the paper size is not retained and it tries to print on Letter size. What is the best way to deal with this? Ray

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 ?

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.
