Hello! I'm just a newbie in access 2007. Hopefully you can help me about this matter. This is a great tutorial but I want to generate the query to the Report Design. May I know, on how to do that? Thanks!

Reply from Richard Rost:

Nicole, you just create a new report and base that report on the query you just created.

Waiting list Comment from James F @ 9/3/2012
Hi Richard
Do yo know when the waiting list page will be fixed, as I'm wanting to cast my vote for the ASP/Access seminar.
Also, how's the Search seminar coming along

Reply from Richard Rost:

It's only my list of items that still need fixing. I hope to get to it today. The seminar has been pushed back a bit until I get the whole web site up and running at 100%.

New Access Tip List of Birthdays Comment from Jeannine Ryan @ 8/21/2012
Hello & thanks for the speedy reply!

I watched a tutorial on how to have Access calculate an accurate age for my clients. I double-checked my spelling and spacing and tried again. It still did not work. I used the following:

Age: DateDiff("yyyy",[DateOfBirth],Now())

Reply from Richard Rost:

And do you have a field named EXACTLY "DateOfBirth" in the underlying table? It can't have any spaces in it.

New Access Tip List of Birthdays Comment from Jeannine Ryan @ 8/21/2012
Hello there and thanks for your helpful site. I have a quick question. When I try to complete a query to calculate the age of my clients based upon their Date of Birth, it asks me to "Enter Parameter Value" for DateOfBirth. I'm not exactly sure what to put here. Can you please help me or guide me to a tutorial that will explain this to me?

Thank you very much!  :-)

Reply from Richard Rost:

That just means that you have something misspelled. Access is looking for a field called "DateOfBirth". What do you currently have it set to? I'm assuming you're using a calculated query field. Are you using the DateDiff function to figure the age?
