Once the October of an election year hits in Portland, even the most politics-avoidant people can’t help but gain a periphery awareness of what’s on the ballot. That’s thanks to political campaign ads. They’re in your mailbox, they’re on your social media feeds, and they’re on the billboards you pass by every day.

Prevent a shared file from being locked

Best Microsoft Access Programmer Portland OR

Hello,

We used to have an Excel database on a shared network location which we recently migrated to an Access database. The main point was to have multiple users (the Excel file could only be opened to edit by one person at a time) and to display data using forms. Both goals have been achieved with the Access file but I still want to make changes to the database from time to time.

I realized that I need to have exclusive access to the

CSV Import Issue – Access 2013

Best Microsoft Access Programmer Portland OR

I have a table with only two columns: FileID and FileSize. FileSize is set to Double to accommodate large file sizes. My problem is that when I import a CSV with the following structure to an existing table:

FileID,FileSize
1,6110471853

Access barfs a Type Conversion error and doesn’t import the Size value. I can manually paste that value into the table, but I can’t find a way for Access to treat that number as Double when importing. It insists on treating it as Long

Is it possible to create a primary key from within a make table query?

Best Microsoft Access Programmer Portland OR

I’m trying to set the primary key from within the table, so that if I have to go back and update the data for whatever reason I don’t then have to open the table and manually add the primary key. Is this something that can be done and if so how?

  3. In List Boxes, we can use checkbox within Listbox5 but we can’t with combo box
  4. For list boxes, we have both a drop-up

Building a knowledge base in Access – template?

Best Microsoft Access Programmer Portland OR

The company I work for has a new cloud database that is hosted by a vendor. The vendor manages the big stuff like troubleshooting issues, coding, design and enhancements. But there are a few staff (like me) who manage the day to day stuff like data entry and management, user training, etc. For the things that we manage day to day I’d like to create a knowledge base to capture instructions on basic functions, FAQs, and how to resolve user questions/issues. Basically the kind
