    Is there a runtime program to allow you to run an access database (.mdb) on a computer without access installed. I am using access 2002. Thanks Perry
  • 2. Run-time error 3231
    Running an Access2000 application in Access 2003 and getting the 3231 run-time error. This application has all linked tables some of which are Access and the rest are DB2. In the environment of Access2000 and DB2 v7.1 FP 6, it runs sucessfully. Execute the SAME .MDB from Access2003 and DB2 v8.l FP 5 or from Access2000 and DB2 V8.1 FP 5 it fails with the 3231 error. I have looked at the references in Access and made all the selections possible only to get the same error. The query that populates the form runs fine when I execute it by itself from the query tab in Access. Is there an ODBC setting in a patch that I can set to relieve this error? Any ideas to help me will be appreciated! Thank you.
  • 3. Excel Output written from Access Form
    I am trying to modify an Access form that allows a user to specify the information s/he needs from a census-type database. The form's code builds a SQL statement from the user's request, and creates from this a record set that is used to populate a new Excel workbook. The form's code opens the new workbook and writes both a datasheet and a graph based on the data to it. The graph appears on the user's screen very briefly and then disappears as the workbook is closed as soon as all information has been written to it. I have tried to put a MsgBox in the Access code immediately before the statement that closes the Excel Application. This allows the graph [& an opportunity to switch to the Excel data screen] to remain on screen but the Excel application is using all the screen space so that the MsgBox that I want to function as a "return to form execution button" remains hidden. I can return to the form by clicking its minimized icon but I'd like that more obtrusive MsgBox button visible for a user while s/he's seeing the Excel output. So can I customize the Excel display screen within the Acess form? thanks, --thelma

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

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.
