  • 2. Parent Report With 8 Sub-Reports
    I have 8 reports that I want to run. Each report is only about 6-7 lines long. I'd like to get them all on a single page. So I created a parent report and made each of the 8 desired reports a sub-report. That part all works fine. My problem is that each of the 8 sub-reports is based on a different query. Each of the 8 queries has 2 parameters. However, the 2 parameters are the same for all 8 queries. When I run the parent report I am prompted for the 2 parameters 8 different times (one for each query). How can I prompt the user for the 2 parameters just one time and then use them for all 8 queries? Thanks In Advance, Fred
  • 3. How To: Suppress ODBC Connection Dialog?
    I have an Access front end connecting to an SQL Server back-end. When the application opens, I run a small test to determine if the SQL Server is available. If it is not, I have code to trap the 'On Error' event. Unfortunately, a 'SQL Server Login' dialog appears before my 'On Error' code has a chance to run. Does anybody know how to prevent the dialog from appearing? Suppressing warnings (DoCmd.SetWarnings FALSE) has no effect. 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 
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.
