  • 2. CountInstance() was a beautiful contribution by Doug Steele a few years back...
    Douglas j.Steele contributed Wed, Aug 11 2004 6:15 pm. Replace$ is not available in A97. Chuck Grimsby took care of that with his airing of the JoeReplace FN. My Q here today is to Doug, in regard to the use of the backslash... Is there ever an instance where CountInstances = (Len(ToSearch) - Len(JoeReplace(ToSearch, ToFind, vbNullString))) \ Len(ToFind) would return a value different than CountInstances = (Len(ToSearch) - Len(JoeReplace(ToSearch, ToFind, vbNullString))) / Len(ToFind) ??? If not, is the wisdom behind the backslash just to produce result that is one of the 3 Types returned by the backslash? This one-liner, BTW, is one of my all time favorites. The simplicity of it is staggering. Thanks again, three years later, for your excellent contribution.
  • 3. Form Not Displaying/Showing
    Hi all! I am using MS Access 2003 for our company's front-end. Since I can remember, way back when we we were still using Access 97, we have been having this problem. The only consolation is that it does not happen frequently. This is our problem: a. User goes to "Sales Order" form and then it opens. b. User enters data. c. User performs several entries. d. User clicks "Done" to finish entries and go out of the form. e. User gets back to the sales order form by clicking the "Sales Order" button again. f. This time the "Sales Order" form does not get displayed. What I do sometimes to fix it is just to perform "Compact and Repair Database". But often this does not work so what I do is to get a fresh new copy of our application and perform "Compact and Repair Database" again. Does anyone have any idea on how to eliminate this silly problem? There is always a reason for a problem or error. I think that the database got corrupted that is why this problem is occuring. But the issue is that there should not be any cause for the malfunction. Any help is highly appreciated. Thanks!

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?

1.Exporting Number with Decimals to Text Rounds to 1 decimal place

I have data in Access that I need to export to a text file.  This data has 4 
or more decimal places and when I export the data the text file ends up with 
rounded data to the first decimal place.  Please help:) 


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.
