  • 1. Too few parameters error when setting a recordset to a query
    Hi, I have a query with three fields that have criteria set to fields on a form. The form is open and those fields have the proper data entered in them. But when trying to set a recordset to that query (Set rstResourcesScheduled_pw = dbCurr_pw.OpenRecordset("qryResourceCalendar")), I get the "too few parameters, expected three". I thought this would be easier than having to filter the recordset when reading through it. I guess Access (2003) doesn't like what I am doing? -paulw
  • 2. Help Needed With Report Printing Problem
    I've installed an A2003 database at several sites and the problem I'm about to describe is only showing itself at one site. The problem also does not appear in my test environment. I'm assuming it must have something to do with printer setup or drivers for the printers being used at that particular site. When a report is previewed on the screen it looks fine, but when the report is printed the font is larger and the text in some text boxes is cut off on the right side similar to if a column in Excel isn't wide enough. The text in the text boxes is multiple lines and all lines have the truncation on the right of the text box. If the report is sent to pdf using the Lebans "Report To PDF" code, the resulting PDF looks fine on the screen and also prints fine with the correct size font. Are there any common printer setup problems that can cause this type of behavior?

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 ?

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.
