Read Exporting with format by Virginia M @ Fri 2/16
thank you for your reply, but I found out the problem. Perhaps this was wrong to do but I created one Invoice and from that I copied to create Deposit Invoice and Grooming Invoice (of course I changed what needed to change) however there was a misspelling in one of the field names and as soon as I corrected the misspelling it is working!
Lesson to be learned !
Cheers !

Read Microsoft Access mdb by FRED TARNELL @ Fri 2/9
I am 75 yrs old. I have been semi retired
for over 10 yrs. I want to get up to date
on Access 16. I have a .mdb that I can email someone. I tried opening and converting according to MS. No luck. I want to pay someone to open and convert to MS Access 16.

Reply from Alex Hedley:

Try creating a blank new db in 2016 so an .accdb
Now import the objects from the mdb.

Read Convention by Dennis O @ Tue 2/6
I am not sure if I have a cartesian query which is joining 3 items per attendee, one for each year? However, I did notice that I have a "copy of MemberF" I no longer use this one but I added more to this page that I am using. If I delete this copy could that be the answer to the multiple entries? If the member was at the 2016, 2017, 2018 convention it is listed 3 times on both MemberF and Copy of MemberF. Can I delete this file. There are a couple other that I should delete. If so, what is the safe way to delete a file? I hope this helps.

Reply from Alex Hedley:

Make a backup of the db before any changes.
If MemberF is a Form and you have a copy called "Copy of MemberF" what are the differences?
Are they both bound to MemberQ?
Does the Member exist 3 times in MemberT?

You need a MemberT which contains the Member then a ConventionYearT then a Table that joins the two so MemberXConventionYear so
MemberID | ConventionYearId
1 | 1
1 | 2

Where 1 is 2016, 2 is 2017 etc

This is what I found out. The new entry is in the "MemberT". The new entry is also listed on the "MemberListF". The Record Source is "MemberSortedQ". When I open the Master Roster (Main Menu)and select the new entry, it opens to a blank form with a (New) Member ID.If I fill this form again, it will set up a new ID. Will list it on the Main Menu Master List but it still won't open, it just repeats the cycle. This doesn't happen to the rest of the list. The new entry does not appear on the "MemberQ". Everyone else, there is no problem. Can this help. I'm at a loss. In November 2017 it was working. Now it dosn't. I don't know how to trouble shoot this.

Reply from Alex Hedley:

What won't open?
Does it show in the MemberT, MemberSortedQ?
Does MemberQ have any filters/criteria?

Read Random Seed value by Richard S @ Tue 2/6
In Expert 26 on the Random number lesson, is there any reason to not use the RND() function as the seed ?

Something like Rnd(rnd()) ?

Thoughts ?

I just realized my second question was similar to my first.The reason I was getting that message (?NAME)was because the field EmployeeID had an extra space in the Employee Form which was not in the Employee Table.

Reply from Alex Hedley:

Have you added a space in the Field name i.e. "Employee ID" not "EmployeeID". Try not to have spaces in Field names, you have to surround them in [] -> [Employee ID] in Queries etc.

Read Combo box Search by Naser A @ Sun 2/4
I put the combo box on the page header of the Form.  It appears only on design mode but does not show up in Form View or Layout mode.

Reply from Alex Hedley:

Put it in the FORM header not the PAGE header.

I'm not sure. Can you refresh my memory. Where can I go to find out how to write a Cartesian query? I may not because you mention one for every year.

I did not have the all the necessary fields listed in my table.  I do have another question, though.  I have an employee form and a customer form, both with EmployeeID fields.  However, one is working correctly with the ID # showing, but the other has #Name? in the EmployeeID field instead of the number.  Both seem to be set-up the same way.

Reply from Alex Hedley:

Does EmployeeID exist in the Bound RecordSource?

Read Convention by Dennis O @ Sat 2/3
Another new thing going wrong. Last 2 years every time I add a new member to the data base and when I bring it back at another day, it works. Now, I fill out a new persons data under the member T. however, this time when I go back I can't open it. The data shows on the table but not on the form. It gives me a blank form. How can I trouble shoot this.

Reply from Alex Hedley:

Check the query is joining correctly

Read Convention by Dennis Owens @ Sat 2/3
I hope you can help me with this. I hope I gave you a better example as to how this is laid out. Again as I process the 2018 registration it is still adding the member info. It now shows 3 of 3. but in the table data, it's listing them only one time, the way it should be.

Reply from Alex Hedley:

Do you have a cartesian query which is joining 3 items per attendee, one for each year?

Read Importing HTML table by Janet G @ Fri 2/2
I'm wondering if it's possible to import an entire table from a website that one must scroll thru to view it within the webpage itself (much like this box I'm typing in). So far Access will only import 49 rows of a > 1500 row table.

Reply from Alex Hedley:

Does it give any errors?

Read Leaving Dirty Record in Expert 22 macro by Richard S @ Tue 1/23
I noticed that each record added by the cool macro presented in Expert 22 (Lesson 3) left a "Dirty Record".  In the lesson, Rick would move to another record to resolve the "Dirty" condition.   What would be the best way to have the Macro do this automatically ?

I really enjoy the lessons... much appreciated !

Till later,
Rick S.

Reply from Alex Hedley:

You could have a move to record which would move off one and back onto another and it would save.
You could run a save command.
