How to link fields in MS word document to Access database
Anyone have experience in linking fields in an MS Word document to an
What I am considering doing is taking an existing fill-in-the fields
word document, for which I cannot now save the data, and allow it to be
opened with no data, have the fields filled in and then save the data in
an Access database. I also want to later select the document (from a
file in the database), open the word document and populate the fields
from the database. Of course if there are then any updates I want to
put them back into the database.
Anyone with sample code?

Instead of Word documents I use RTF-documents. RTF-documents act just
like Word documents in Word. The difference is that RFT-documents are
plain text-files, and can easily be processed in Access to find - with
the appropriate placeholders - the filled in information.

I have a table with around 18,000 records in it. One of the fields is
a Text field, but 85% of the things in that field is a number (The
other 15% is a number with a text suffix).

were a number (because, when it sorts as text it looks like this...
So far, the only thing I came up with was to make a query with this
But that either produces a #Error for those rows where the Section has

What can I do?
Can I create an iif statement to catch that error? or Something?
where X is table and Y is field.
Sort on this but display y.
This will place all fields containing text at the top and then sort
numbers. If you want all text fields at the bottom then change 0 to
If you really need to sort the text contianing fields as well you will
need a funtion to extract the numeric part and use that as the
arguement to cdbl. You wouldn't need the iif function then.

..... I have some select fields in a form I created for a database search

The user enters search values for: name, address1, city, .... etc.,

look for the field to be equal to, not equal to, Like, or Not Like the
value in the database.
So in the form I have:

in combination with
<option value='!='NOT LIKE>NOT LIKE</option>
For an example, this search could be to find an entry "WHERE city

Private Sub Text0_KeyPress(KeyAscii As Integer)
If KeyAscii >= 48 And KeyAscii <= 57 Then
KeyAscii = 0
Just put this code in the KeyPress event of whatever text field you do
not want to contain numbers. OR you could glue thumbtacks to the
number keys on all your users keyboards...
Thought I'd add my 2 cents worth. Avoid magic numbers, especially
when you can use builtin VBA constants. The following is a little
more intuitive to read and a future developer does not have to lookup
48 and 57 to see exactly what is being blocked.

Is the column in the view the result of a calculation? If so, try applying
the CAST or CONVERT function to coerce the result back into an integer.

>...access97, sql2005 memo field in a linked table shows as a text field
I've got two tables in sql2005 which have an 'ntext' field
when I linked the first table in access97 last week using an odbc data
source the access-field type was 'memo'
when I link the 2nd table today, it is linked as a text(255) field,
ditto for the first table if I link it today
if I link the 2nd table using access2003 (and the same odbc data
source) it is linked as a memo field
I don't think anything was changed on sql2005 or access97 since
linkage of the first table produce the correct field type

I am trying to populate a field in a SQL table based on the values
returned from using substring on a text field.
Field Name = RecNum
Field Value = 024071023
The 7th and 8th character of this number is the year. I am able to
get those digits by saying substring(recnum,7,2) and I get '02'. Now
what I need to do is determine if this is >= 50 then concatenate a
'19' to the front of it or if it is less that '50' concatenate a '20'.
This particular example should return '2002'. Then I want to take the
result of this and populate a field called TaxYear.
Any help would be greatly apprecaietd.
Assuming both RecNum and TaxYear fields are in the same table, you can use
this script to populate TaxYear:
set TaxYear = case
when SubString(RecNum,7,2) >= '50' then '19' +
else '20' + SubString(RecNum,7,2)
