  • 1. Linking Inbox to table
    I'm trying to link my inbox to an access table but I can't see any of my inbox, sent items, etc folders, I can only see the folders I use for filing. Any suggestions on why I can't see it?
  • 2. ADP question about stored proc parameters
    Ok, I know I've done this, but it doesn't seem to work for me anymore. I have a form based on a stored proc, usp_PubsAuthors and it has a single parameter, @FilterState varchar(2) which defaults to CA. I put a combo box on the form with a list of states, and named it to the param, FilterState. Isn't this supposed to ... auto-negotiate, as Aaron Kempf says? I've seen this work, but it no longer does. Is there some simple step I'm missing? Danny Lesandrini
  • 3. Update using 2 tables and a sum
    Ahhh... I can't figure this out, can someone help? I'm using Access 2003. I have 2 tables here: One is for each person, called tblPartners. One is for each distribution by a partner, called tblDistributions In tblPartners there is a field called ClosingBalance. What I want to do is UPDATE ClosingBalance to equal the sum of distributions by that partner for a period. So what I originally did was try UPDATE tblPartners LEFT JOIN tblDistributions ON tblPartners.PartnerID = tblDistributions.PartnerID AND tblPartners.Period= tblDistributions.inPeriod SET tblPartners.ClosingBalance = SUM(tblDistributions.DistribAmt) But this gives the error "You tried to execute a query that does not include the specified expression 'ClosingBalance' as part of an aggregate function." I also tried: UPDATE tblPartners SET ClosingBalance = TotalDistribs FROM tblPartners INNER JOIN tblDistributions (SELECT SUM(DistribAmt) AS TotalDistribs, PartnerID, inPeriod FROM tblDistributions GROUP BY PartnerID, inPeriod) ON tblPartners.PartnerID = tblDistributions.ParnterID AND tblPartners.Period = tblDistributions.inPeriod But gives a syntax error.

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.
