Outlook 2003 Custom Field Extracted From 'Due Date' Field?

Question: Outlook 2003 Custom Field Extracted From 'Due Date' Field?

I use due dates on my Outlook tasks. When I customize my Tasks list (in the Calendar view) to group by due date, I just get too many groupings (one for each due date!). I would like to know if I can create a custom field called 'Due Month' and/or 'Due Week', extracted from the 'Due Date', so I can view my tasks by what is due during a given week or month. If the answer is yes, any suggestions on the technique I would use would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
Mac

Hello All!

I am a novice Access user. I just recently started using it to create a database for work that will track complaints. I have been searching high and low to try to figure out how to create a custom autonumber field but just don't know what to do. Maybe there is some help out there from one of you.

I wish to create an autonumber that displays the computer's date and generated numbering.
(Ex. 08/22/10-0001, 08/22/10-0002...)

Any help given would be much appreciated!

Thanks in advance,

Hello:

I'm using Access 2003 on a Windows 7 machine. The database I've created tracks the purchase and sale of industrial equipment and the form that's giving me trouble is for creating/viewing quotes.

On the quote form I have a quote number field that automatically generates a new number each time a new quote is created. In the Default Value for the QuoteNumber field I have the following formula: =Nz(DMax("[QuoteNumber]","tblQuote"))+1

Generating the new number works great but the users want to be able to go back and find a record using the quote number field. In the criteria in the "qryQuote" query I have [Enter the quote number].

To control the whole mess I have a switchboard with one of the buttons being "Find quote by quote #". If I create a macro that does the search and opens the query it works. But when I add the command to the macro to open the quote form I get all records and I only want to see the one I've searched for.

This is probably way more information than necessary but - better too much than too little.

I'm fairly new to programming in Access so please be kind...

Thanks!
 

Answer:Solved: Access 2003 find using custom autonumber field

Theresa, welcome to the Forum.
The simplest way to do what you want is to add a Find Combo to the actual quote form, you don't need a button or query.
The Form design "Combo Wizard" will create the combo and associated VBa for you.
When the user types the quote number in to the combo it automatically shortens the list of quotes depending on what you type, or the user can use the drop down side bar to move up or down the list as required.

Good day guys

My puzzler today (and has been for ages) is this:

In my Access report, I pull in "StartDate" and "EndDate" fields from the calling form and wish to display them as part of a report subtitle.

I therefore have a field called "DateDetails" in my report header whose ControlSource is:
Code:
="Records Selected between " & Forms!Reports!StartDate & " and " & Forms!Reports!EndDate
The dates actually derive from a table and the date format for both fields in that table is "General Date".

The result is that the report shows the following as an example:
Records Selected between 17/05/07 12:00:07 and 10/08/07 12:00:07

BUT what I want is the following:

Records Selected between 17/05/07 and 10/08/07

or even nicer

Records Selected between 17-May-2007 and 10-August-2007

Can this be done in such a control?

Hi, I was kindly helped my AJ on this site to end up with

=SUMPRODUCT(((A7:A18)>=A6)*((A7:A18)<=B6)*(B7:B18))

for the folowing:
2 colums, 'A' with the year (currently as plain number) 'B' with a simple number. There are roughtly 5/8 entries for each year, from 1989 to 2008. I need to sum 'b' for a range of years, (say 1990 to 1995), I can do it for one year value but not more.

but the further problem I have is:
I have a list of 160 rows with the year being the key data field and selecting various ranges say 1995 to 2006.

I need to capture the data in a way that I need to keep historic info for years gone (2006,2007) but then alter the sheet (remove a row if no longer relevant) for current and future years.

I was thinking of having a final column with a "year removed field" and the main formula above being dependant on that for inclusion, make sense?
Many thanks

I know the Include Field will include part of the text from an Include File if it is in a bookmark. The format is {IncludeText "File Path" Bookmark}. I have 2 files: Source and Target.

Source is a form template. I included a Text Form Field and gave it the bookmark AA. I also included other text in a "normal" bookmark, BB.

In Target I have 2 fields: {IncludeText "C:\\Source.dot" AA} and {IncludeText "C:\\Source.dot" BB}. The text from BB shows up, but the one for AA is blank.

If I go into Source and look under Bookmarks, both AA and BB are there.

BTW, I have tried it with the Source form both "Protected" and "Unprotected" and it didn't make any difference.

Any idea why this is happening, and more importantly, any idea on how to make this work? If not, it seems like a real bug in Word 2003 as they are both definitely considered to be bookmarks.

Thank you,

Is there anyone out there who knows a lot about Microsoft Outlook 2003 ? The reason I ask I have an issue with Microsoft Outlook 2003 on the service desk on which I work. Customers send emails to the service desk for a variety of reasons but it all gets a bit messy as service desk personnel open emails and we have no idea of who has opened what and therefore who is dealing with what.

I have been told one way to deal with this is field chooser as you can create an additional column called ?Analyst? , when each analyst then places is name against the email he/ she is currently working on and that way all the remaining team members are aware of who is working on what. It works in a similar way to flags but with the flexibility of when the team grows instead of running out of coloured flags we just add the name.

I have been tasked with implementing this but I can not get beyond setting up field chooser and adding the ?Analyst? column. Has anyone done a similar thing or know how to resolve this, I would be really grateful for any help here.
 

Answer:Field Chooser Issue On Microsoft Outlook 2003

The company I work for has one dispatcher who assigns each request with a tech's ID number in the subject line then all follow up emails are subjected with that number only - you see your number you open reply etc...
If at your company this is out of the question try this...
Set up each analyst with an ID number...

As each of you open emails change the subject line to your established analyst number ID and request that the user refer to this number for the entirity of this email but if the subject changes a new request will have to be submitted and this will tell others its been responded to and to whom is responding.

Good Luck

I list a name and address n the TO field, ie, john doe <[email protected]>

I copy the whole john doe <[email protected]>

I paste it into the text box or a word doc and get only "john doe"


I've been told that if I make my Outlook display name = john doe <[email protected]> it would then copy the whole thing (including email address). It doesn't.



I once read that Outlook doesn't recognize < >. I use Yahoo for personal mail and I often need to transfer there, so prefer to keep my emails in this format.



I know you can go to "properties" and gather the email address (all the posts say this), but if I click on the name in the To field, the "Email Properties" gives me a display name that does NOT include the email address--though the display name in the address book does. I like to copy both the name and the address at once and this takes two steps. If I go to the address book, hit Properties, then, yes, I can get the full john doe <[email protected]>. That is obviously cumbersome for multiple names and I find this an unacceptable solution.

I have a unique problem. I am trying to use the INCLUDEPICTURE field code. The document I'm using is linked to a very sophisticated database software program and I have received instructions on merging data from this database INTO the INCLUDEPICTURE field to create the filename for the photo files. An example is typed below:

{INCLUDEPICTURE "G:\\START\\IMAGES\\PHOTOS\\{MERGEFIELD "PROVIDER_LAST_NAME"}_{MERGEFIELD "PROVIDER_FIRST_NAME"}.GIF"}

In the above example, the photo filenames are all matched up to the fields referenced in the formula (last_first.gif). These are the correct field codes, and the double slashes are important, I have been told.

My problem is that as soon as I save the document containing the above field, the underscores all change to "%20" and the field doesn't work!! No one at my software vendor's help desk can help me with this problem. Does anyone know anything about preventing this??

First the background: We are gradually deploying Office 2007, but not everyone in the agency has it. I have both 2003 and 2007 installed on my system, but I do my work in 2003, and none of our databases have actually been converted to 2007 format (at least, none that I work with).

I support a software program that has a proprietary menu item when you right-click a calculated field. It has been this way for 10-15years and has worked in WinXP through Win10 with never an issue. This past week I had 3 different customers tell me that when they right-click one of these fields to access what is normally the Cut/Copy/Paste/ menu that also includes our menu item, they are now getting the Windows default cut/copy/paste/Right to Left Reading order/Show Unicode control characters/ etc menu. The only thing I can think of that they all have in common besides these are all Window 10 64bit pc's, is that they all have one update to Adobe Acrobat (17.012.20098).
I was able to resolve for a moment on two of these workstations by having the user go into Language/Advanced settings and actually selected "English (Unites States) from the "Override for Windows display language" even though that settings is implied by the "recommended". But after the pc was turned off over night and back to it the next day, the problem is back and that setting is still selected. All language and regional settings on all the pc's are defaulted to English/Unites States. I do not know what other avenue to go in. Could something hae been switched on or off in Windows (by this Adobe update perhaps?) that would make the context text menu switch to Windows text default right-click menu?

Any help is appreciated!

I'm doing a quick-and-(very)dirty design as a proof of concept. During this process I fat-fingered the word Description, as Ddescription. No problem, I know what it means, right. But it annoyed me, so I changed the underlying table (where the error occurred), deleted the control from the form, and added the (now correctly spelled) control.

However, every time I try and ruin the form it wants a value for the now non-existent field Ddescription. I simpy click-through, and the form runs fine. When I look at the available fields in the form's View query's Field List, it still shows Ddescription, and i seems to think it's coming from the underlying table.

Any ideas on how I can remove this phantom field? I can't find anything called "The_View_for_form_FooBar" anywhere, but I know it must exist somewhere...

Welcome to the forum, before answering you question can I suggest some improvements to your database.
Currently you do not have any "Key", "Indexed" fields in your tables and there are no relationships set up between the tables.
Also do you really need the Archive Table?
The data looks like it has been exported in from a spreadsheet, relational databases work quite differently to spreadsheets, so to make the most of their advantages you need to correctly relate your Tables.
Your UserID Roster also has some disconnect between the Field Names and the actual data in them, particularly the Name and Type feilds.
In the Supervisor Table the Birthdate does not seem to have Translated correctly.

I am working on a database that stores genus, species, and variety I want to sort the data with genus, then species, then variety.

Now the tricky part. Sometimes there is no species. When this is the case, I want the database to sort that record off of variety.

I have though of a way to do this, but need help with the code.

If I make a species2 field, I could create an expression that would look at the species field. If the species field is empty, it could copy the data from variety. If it is not empty, then copy the data in the species field.

Once the species2 field has the updated data, I could then do a sort

genus, species2, variety

The report would have genus, species and variety showing and species2 would be checked off to not show in the report.

I am using Microsoft Access 2000.

Answer:Access - if field is blank, copy field A, if not copy field B

You should not actually need another field to do this, just another column in your report's Query. Something like this as a Field header :-

dummySpecies: iif(isnull([species]), [genus], [species])

this should provide a column with the species in if it there and the genus if it is not, which you can use in place of your actual species field in the report for sorting.

Help! This should be easy but I can't get it to work.

I have a report that must group by Trip# and sort by ascending activity date all of the various activities that took place on multiple days of the trip.
Further, the trip with the earliest date must come first regardless of the Trip#.
I've accomplished getting the earliest starting date trip first and grouping its detail with a unique string made up of the earliest date of each trip formatted to YYYYMMDD+Trip#. This prints a trip total and works fine.

But the daily activity for the trip is out of date sequence.
Adding a Date field to the 'Sorting and Grouping' insists on breaking on and printing a sub-total for each of the trips activity dates.
Without the sorting & grouping by date the trip records are out of sequence even though the data source query is sorted ascending by activity date.

(see attachments that show the above)

The only solution I can think of is to create a sub-report sorted by activity date.

Does anyone have any better ideas?

I work with MS Access 2003.

I am creating a query to show all contracts set up in a certain year that have been cancelled in that specific year. This "Cancelled" field is not a yes/no field, but includes the date on which it has been cancelled (always starting 31/12/YYYY).

First, to show me the contracts set up in a certain year (say 2008) , i created a parameter under the "Contract Year" field, asking which year you want to see (in this case 2008).

I wish to add a criteria that then shows cancelled contracts at the end of that specific year, so 31/12/2008. So whether it is "2008" or another year is dependent on the value in the "Contract Year" field.

I tried the following as criteria for the Column "Cancelled":

#31/12/[Contract Year]#

to try and have it take the year mentioned in that field.
But it doesn't work. Access sees is as a second parameter, instead of a field name.
I tried adding LIKE to it and the &-sign, still no luck.

Is it possible to use a field name in a date criteria and if so, how could i do it?

I tried to get some of the programmers to do it but no one wants to worry about supporting it, so I am taking a crack at it.

All help is very much appreciated. One idea I had is maybe a macro in excel but not sure if it would mess up the formating. I will try to get a copy of the file I use and post it.

Hi,I'm trying to create an if formula and I'm a bit stuck.Column L contains dates separated by commas. I'm trying to create a formula to say:if L2 contains (fixed date from a single cell) then "Exclude" else "No"There are two issues. How do I make the if statement contains not just equals? How do I copy the cells down and keep the field with date in fixed?For example I added the date I needed to 'Delivery sheets d1':=IF(Data!L2='Delivery sheets'!D1,"exclude","No") but when I try and fill down the D1 continues in a series e.g. d1, d2, d3 etcI hope this makes sense.

I have a working Exchange 2003 server and clients running outlook 2003. Everything seems to be working well except for one thing.

I created a shared contact folder in the public folders. I then added a bunch of contacts and gave editor permission to a "Staff List". Staff List is a distrobution group in AD.

Each member of the group and go down to public folders and open the Public Contacts folder and see/edit the contacts in there. So that seems to be working great.

I then right-clicked on the folder and checked the box to add the Public Contacts to the outlook contacts options. Now when I user starts a new message and clicks the "To" button they see a option under "Global Contacts" for Public Contacts.

The problem is that the Public Contacts are empty there. It is as if they can't see them at all, but they can if they go down to the actual folder in the public folders.

Any ideas?

Hi guys,

Something weird is happening. Some of my movie files (file type doesn't matter) became corrupted; when I play them in VLC they cause errors, they were just fine before and nothing has changed. I noticed in Explorer that these files have no Date Modified field, it's simply blank; I've never seen anything like that.

I did a chkdsk on the drive and see no errors. What could it be ?

Thanks.

Answer:Blank Date Modified Field ?

VLC should rebuild the Index, but that is a temporary fix. Depending on what format they are, there is "DIVFIX" and "Meteor MKV repair" you can try to run the faulty content through which of those is appropriate, you'll have to google it, cant remember the links.

Hello all,

I am a not a novice computer user by any means, or even a novice MS Office user. I am, however, brand new to Access.

We are currently in the process of creating a database with which to track complaints that we have received, so that we can ensure they are processed in a timely manner with all the appropriate steps taken. We would like to have a unique case number assigned to each complaint, automatically populated when a new complaint is entered into the database. I've created and populated the database from the Excel spreadsheet that we had been using to track these complaints.

The problem I'm having however is creating the autonumber in the "case" field that we want! We want our complaints to be auto-populated with a case number "XX-YYYY" where XX is the last two digits of the year in which the complaint was entered and YYYY is an autonumber, starting with 0001 and going up from there.

Can anyone help me with how I can make this populate correctly? I tried using the following in the Format mask in design view, based on the in-program help:

"10-"****

with the thinking that if necessary I can create a database file for each calendar year (useful for archiving purposes at least). However, ~every~ entry shows up as "10-" (with nothing after the hyphen) until I click on it (at which time a seemingly random, but sequential, 8-digit number shows up, starting with "69313633").

Please help!!

15/02/2003 17:09:37

Now, I need to delete all the records for a particular day (One of their HD's failed, and they had to restore the data and lost a day, but the entries are still in the database, and can not be re-entered until the old entries are deleted).

How do I structure a query to delete all the records for a particular day? Preferably, I would like a SELECT statement first, just to check that the records found correspond to the delete criteria, and then the DELETE statement.

Thanks

I created the check box as you may know that was easy enough.

Hello,

In Access, I am trying to develop a process for generating a unique client number that follows a very specific formula: XXX - XXXX - X - XXXX. The first group should represent the quarter and year when the client is first introduced (non-standard year: Feb-Jan). The second group should be a unique, sequential ID number with leading zeros (missing numbers won't matter and leading zeros seems impossible, so I'm planning to use a DMax calculation on the form that generates a sequential number). The third number represents the client's initial program phase ID. The final number relates to the grant contract ID.

I have generated the number with the following in a Select query:

UniqueNumber: DatePart("q",DateAdd("m",-1,[MonthStart])) & Format([MonthStart],"yy") & "-" & [SeqNum] & "-" & [InitialPhaseID] & "-" & [ContractID]

The table already has a primary key, but since I am required to generate client numbers in this format, I want the UniqueNumber to be saved and searchable. This field never needs to change once the original record is saved. I've tried an Append query, but can't make it work. I assume it's related to the fact that I'm combining Date and Number fields, not to mention the DatePart function. I consistently get a key violation error. Any thoughts on how I can proceed?

I have a field that is date/time, formatted to display the long date (which starts with the day of the week). This has been extremely useful for some append, update and delete queries.

However, I would like to be able to do an update query based on the day of the week for each record. I know that the date/time field is stored as a number so I can't search for any string of letters. But, is there a way to take the long date format and copy what's there as a string so I can then extract the day of the week out of it? Otherwise, I guess I'm stuck with adding a separate field for day of the week, and manually inputting it. Seems like such a waste.

Hey everyone,

I'm having problems with Access, where I have a date/time field, which stores a month and a year (successfully), but still automatically assigns the first date of the month in question.

I used the following input mask (00/0000;;_) for the date field, and so far I haven't had any troubles with putting in a month and year. So far so good. But when I complete the date and move on, Access changes it to a full date. e.g. 06/2010 --> 01/06/2010.

Now, I'm actually fine with this part, my only problem is that I don't want it to do this in forms (both datasheet and normal view) or reports.

I heard something about using a Format (http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/access/HP010990151033.aspx) to adjust the display, but I can't seem to get that to work. Is there any other way to tell Access how to display the date field, like what can be done in Excel?

This is rather urgent as I have a project due tomorrow and this problem (as well as others) have now been reached and I'd like to solve them as soon as possible.

Any help is appreciated, and I look forward to your responses.

Now I do know how to create a new custom form and field and to design and publish it. BUT the phone selctor and phone selected fields are more tricky - unless I'm missing something very simple - who knows.

Sometimes it tells me the clock and no date or anything else is shown.
Some hours later it changes mysteriously to show the clock and the date format I once set, so that I get to see the day of the week, the date in numeral and the month in letters, and finally showing the year.

I have entered this through the expression builder as well as typing it to avoid typos.

The error message is:

Unknown function 'Date' in validation expression or default value on 'Artists.Date edited'.

I am doing this at work: we are running Windows 8, Server 2012, Access 2010 via virtual desktop.

Any help would be gratefully received!

Thank you
Alison
 

Answer:Solved: Access 2010 date field validation problem

Alison, welcome to the Forum.
I think you will find that this is an Access problem of Access 2010.
You may be able to overcome it by using Now() instead of Date().
If not I can provide you with some simple VBA code that will do the same thing that may work.
I have also seen advice to open a new 2010 blank database and import everything in to it to solve this problem.

Access 2007 Update Query For Updating A Date Field

Hi I have been asked to write a query for an Access 2007 db

I need to update a date field in a table based on another date field in the same table

1st date field is the person's start date (StartDate)
2nd date field is the person's project date (ProjectDate)
Without going into too much detail, the Project Start date always begins on the 1st of the month

If the person's StartDate is between the 1st - 14th the project start date is counted as on the first day of the StartDate month/year

If the person's StartDate is between the 15th - end of month the project start date is counted on the 1st day of the NEXT month

Example:
StartDate = 7/1/2011
ProjectDate = 7/1/2011

StartDate = 7/14/2011
ProjectDate = 7/1/2011

StartDate = 7/15/2011
ProjectDate = 8/1/2011

StartDate = 7/30/2011
ProjectDate = 8/1/2011

I would like to update the ProjectDate in an update query

Any suggestions? Thanks
 

Answer:Access 2007 Update Query For Updating A Date Field

Create a Column heading like this
numdays: format([StartDate], "dd")
or
numdays: datepart("dd", [StartDate])
this will give you the day of the month on it's own
add a second Column
NewProjdate: IIf([numdays]>14,Format([StartDate],"mm")+1 & "/01/" & Format([StartDate],"yyyy"),Format([StartDate],"mm") & "/01/" & Format([StartDate],"yyyy"))

This will give you the date to use in the update query.

Is it possible?. If it is then how do i achieve this. I couldn't find any interface to do this.

I would like for my Access 2007 database to automatically record the date/time when the data in a SPECIFIC field is modified (not when any data in the record changes).

Here is a simplified explanation of my scenario. This database keeps track of cases in my office. A data entry form named "Cases" feeds a table named "Cases." The form includes text boxes that correspond to the fields in the table. Three of these are: "Case_Notes," "Case_Status," and "Date_Status_Change."

I would like for the "Date_Status_Change" field to automatically reflect the current date/time whenever the data in the "Case_Status" field changes. I do not want the date/time to change when information in the "Case_Notes" field is modified.

What code would accomplish this?

The following code will enter the date/time for a change anywhere in the record:

Private Sub Form_BeforeUpdate(Cancel As Integer)
Me![Date_Status_Change].Value = Now()
End Sub

But I want to limit it so that it dates changes ONLY in the ?Case_Status? field.

Hello,

I have been struggling with this for a couple of days.

Here's the scenario: I have 2 sets of data, one shows repeat calls for a list of customers, the other shows trouble reports for the same set of customers. I want to count how many times each of these customers called within 30 days of the original trouble report.

I have tried using a nested count Iif expression but I don't have a lot of experience with expressions and apparently am using it incorrectly. What I have tried is something like this:

=Count(IIf([Contact Date/Time],+30,1))

Any suggestions or ideas are welcome at this point. Thank you in advance!

Thanks,

Answer:Access 2013 - Count only if date falls within 30 days of field from different table

I would create a 'groupby' query using the DateAdd function for criteria. If this is a report you should be able to link this query to the report query by acct number or something.
SQL looks like this example
SELECT Table1.Name2, Count(Table1.ID) AS NameCount
FROM Table1
WHERE (((Table1.Date1)>DateAdd('d',-30,Date())))
GROUP BY Table1.Name2;

When items are loaned out we want them returned in 30 working days (approximately 6 weeks I'm not going to bother trying to calculate holidays) but to only come back on a week day Monday through Friday.

Field Name ReturnDate_Fld this needs to be calculated as 30 working days from the current date

or should I not worry about the extra effort and use the approximate by adding 42 to the BorrowDate_Fld (plus 42 days = 6 weeks)

Should I worry about this in a form or only set it as field in the report/query?

I have a Word 2010 document and I want to have specific text appear if a date is more than 42 days away from today (whatever today happens to be). I've got a three-cell table that looks like:


________________________________________________________

| DATE: | 12/25/13 | { =IF(B1-TODAY()>42,TRUE,FALSE) } |
________________________________________________________



I keep getting a Syntax Error on my field in the 3rd cell. I think the problem is that Word doesn't understand "TODAY()" like Excel does, but I don't know if there is any other way to calculate the days between two dates? My eternal gratitude to anyone who can figure out how to do this properly.

Answer:Date calculation using Word 2010 table/field Syntax Error

You will need to create a spreadsheet then "Link" that spreadsheet containing the calc cells.

Things to Remember When Linking
If you move the linked Excel file, you break the link. To fix this, you need to relink the file.
Double-click on the Excel data in your document to edit it: this opens the linked spreadsheet.
You can also edit the spreadsheet directly: the changes appear in your Word document once you save the Excel spreadsheet.

Good morning,

Is it possible to add code to the "On Dbl Click" of a data field to automatically open the Insert-Hyperlink menu?

I have a form that has a field pointing to a table with hyperlink set as a data type. What I want to do is easily be able to have a user enter a hyperlink to a project document on a network drive for future reference. I have it working now, but the user has to know to pick the drop menu INSERT then pick HYPERLINK to open the menu to browse to the document. What I would like to be able to do is when the user double clicks the field have the insert-hyperlink menu automatically open.

Is this possible?
Thanks,
Brian

I have a form with a yes/No field and a memo field. I want to lock the memo field when there is an X in the check box field (so that data cannot be entered in the memo field) and when the X is removed from the check box field I want to unlock the memo field (so that data can be entered in the memo field).

Any help would be appreciated.
 

Answer:Access 2003 lock a field

Create the form and add your controls (Checkbox and text box).

Right click the check box and go to properties. On the event tab > click in the onClick event handler and click the three ... button. Code builder and enter the following...your control names may vary:

If Me.Check0 = True Then
Me.Text2.Enabled = FalseEnd If
If Me.Check0 = False Then
Me.Text2.Enabled = True
End If

Hello and Happy New Year to All!

I have 2 tables:
T1: Price File main fields (cate 1, cate 2, NIGP code) when received from vendor, NIGP codes are not entered and has many identical cate 1 and cate 2 fields because of the category of the items. Other fields distinguish the difference.
T2: NIGP Codes main fields (cate 1, cate 2, NIGP code) used to update the T1's NIGP codes.

Both tables have identical info in the cate 1 and cate 2 fields. Only T2 has NIGP codes.

I need for T1 to search T2 where cate 1 and cate 2 equal and update T1 with the NIGP code in T2.

I've tried an update query but it appears that my problem is the number of rows where cate 1 and cate 2 are identical. It should return 128 rows and it's returning 385 rows. I need it to find the first instance of cate 1 & cate 2 and update T1's NIGP field.

Yes, we are still using Access 2003. Our IT department won't let us upgrade and convert our databases for whatever reason(s).

Thank you to all who can help me with this issue!
