I'm wondering whether I can filter by date.

My case: I want to make a database filter that only shows coupons that haven't expired yet and also haven't been used yet. I can deal with the used part, but I need a formula type thing that lets me only show coupons whose expiration dates > today's date.

Is this possible? Or would I need access?

I'm working on a spreadsheet that lists monthly recurring expenses. I have one cell on the sheet listing the current date (using the "=Now()" formula), but I'd like to have the other cells change at certain times throughout the month.

For example, if one cell currently says "April-15", when the actual date reads "April-16", the respective cell would change to "June-15". This way, whenever the spreadsheet is viewed the next recurring payment date will be seen.

I know this is the wrong tool for something like this - I'm using SharePoint at the office with a calendar list with workflows that shoot off emails in a much better put together format - but this is just for home use and I'd like to keep it all in one document if possible.

Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

A:Excel 2010: Cell Date Change with Current Date

The way I read it was that you have fixed recurring payment dates, so you just want to know the next date based on the day today. Hope the attached might assist.
You need to list the payment dates somewhere and then the formula looks up the next date. You might want to look up today plus 1 (or something) to reflect the fact that if the next payment date is today, there's a good chance you'll not get any unplanned payments on that run.

Hello. I have a cell on my spread sheet which calculates an earliest date due. The cell references other cells to achieve this and looks like this '=C51+(F8*7)' where cell C51 is a date field in the format DD/MM/CCYY and contains the date 26/12/2015. And cell F8 is a number field which contains the value '4'. This value '4' is indicating a number of weeks. So the calculation (F8*7) gets me the number of days and I then add those days to the date in cell C51 to get 23/01/2016.I want this cell to output the current date if the calculation above results in a date that is in the past. Can anyone tell me if there is a simple way to achieve this? Thank you.

A:Excel: Substitute a past date with the current date

If I understand you correctly, this should get you what you want:=IF("your calculation"< TODAY(),TODAY(),"your calculation")However, the TODAY() will update every day to always show the current date, assuming "your calculation" results in a date that is in the past.In other words, it will not lock in the first date it calculates. It will always display "today's" date.Is that what you want to see?One other issue: As explained at the link below, the TODAY() function is "volatile". That means that is will recalculate every time the sheet calculates, even if none of the arguments have changed. A large number of volatile functions can slow a worksheet down. and Non-Volatile Functions

Excel supports the concept of a volatile function, that is,
one whose value cannot be assumed to be the same from one
moment to the next even if none of its arguments (if it
takes any) has changed. Excel reevaluates cells that contain
volatile functions, together with all dependents, every time
that it recalculates. For this reason, too much reliance on
volatile functions can make recalculation times slow. Use them

The following Excel functions are volatile:

I go to the same site every day, but the URL changes day-to-day with the current date string on the end of the URL. So my question is, when I add this site to my Favorites, is there a way I can customize the URL so that it updates with the current date?

If it's possible, I imagine it would look something like this:

="" & Date.Now()

I highly doubt it, but is there any chance this is possible? Thanks for your help!

No method to achieve that (that I'm aware of).

Does the website have a main page or home page where the URL does not change day-to-day? If yes, bookmark that. you can then navigate to the "dated" page from the home page.

A:Current date on Windows MonthCalendar not bolding in Win 7 OS

In case this information will be helpful to anybody in the future, I finally determined the cause of the current date not bolding in Windows 7. I discovered the line of code that prevents the current date from bolding in Windows 7 even though the line of code does not prevent the current date from bolding in Virtual PC/Windows XP mode.

In the real Windows application, I searched for any code that might be the culprit and then tested in a lil? test application project. I used Visual Studio 2005 for my test application just as the real application was created in Visual Studio 2005. My review of the real app's code and my testing determined that when I comment out the following line of code in the real Windows app , the current date is bolded in Windows 7 whereas if I have this line of code the current date is not bolded in the System.Windows.Forms.MonthCalendar control in Windows 7:

this.calDate.MaxDate = System.DateTime.Today;

The name of the MonthCalendar control in this Windows app is calDate

Here is code from a lil? test app that shows how this line of code is the culprit. If you run the lil? test app with this line of code "this.monthCalendar1.MaxDate = System.DateTime.Today;" and then run the test app without this line of code on Windows 7, you will see that having this line of code prevents the current date from bolding on Windows 7. There is nothing in this Visual Studio 2005 project except a form and the MonthCalendar control on the form. There are no other controls on the form.

//Now I have added in this test project to set the MaxDate of the calendar control

//In our real app, we set the MaxDate to System.DateTime.Today.
//Using the following code, on Windows XP mode the current date is bolded still.
//On Windows 7, the current date is NOT bolded.

I can see why your post has remained unanswered, many have viewed it (200+). This not something that can be answered in two lines.
This requires a study and and you will need to me more explicit with what is expected from you in your company.
You will need to sit down and write down the exact requirements and then also analyse the data that is given you.
You'll have to make a small project of it and take some time to evaluate all you have and how you need it to be presented.
I just took a quick look at the data you furnished and this has told me enough, needs time and understanding of it all before an answer can be given that will help you along.

If you have a table with the courses followed, then yes all the names of the persons that followed them should be there.
You have a total overview of all personell with a unique code so use this as your data source.
Remember that you should duplicate as little data as possible to keep general maintenance as simple as possible. This will also make updating anb refreshing data simple.

mail merge

in the database and word processing software (it's likely the same help file, so it may not matter)

here's the detailed FAQ page and
here's one about works 3 and creating labels

sounds fairly similar to the office procedures

I have a Job Cost Database and
I have two questions about printing a report with a certain date range.
1. Data up to 7 years old.
2. Is it possible to set up a criteria that if there are more then 5 entries for a phase then it will only print the Data up to 7 years old? On some of the phases we only have a couple of entries and they are older then 7 years old but we need that to stay in there.
Sure hope this makes sense.
Thanks for your expertise


A:Printing a report with a date range

You can select data between the current date and 7 years before that date.
I am not certain that you can do the second part with Criteria, as I don't think it is possible to limit the records for a Single phase without applying it to all the others

I'm using Works 2000 V.5 on 98SE. Want to retain grid lines when printing Also would like to create a custom form- none of the examples are useful.

A:Works 2000 database

I have that version, there's doesn't seem to be that option. As an alternative, try selecting the records and applying left -- right -- top -- bottom borders (via Format -- Border).

EDIT: my mistake ; File -- Page Setup -- Other Options.

By "custom form", do you mean an input form, like Access? Don't know, will look it up.

A:Will a works database work?

Works will only "work" if it has an actual database like Access to enter your data into. You can set up one database and enter the data there directly. If you are on a network you can share the database and have forms set up for data entry. If you are in different locations you could use some kind of program like PCAnywhere and the remote person could dial in and do data entry on the database. There are way too many options so you might want to give us soem kind of idea on what your setup is and how to accomplish it.

Hi All,

Right now my "database" is a Word merge file that I use to insert merge fields in all my word documents, it's a bit archaic and slow, plus, there is no way to integrate with Outlook 2003. I tried Act! 2005, and its slow and clunky and wont work for my needs. I want to still be able to use all of my Word documents and all of the merge fields in them as well as update the database from Outlook, send emails to a sorted list, etc. Any suggestions?

Thanks, Roger.

A:Need database that works with Outlook and Word

To Roger:
Do You Have MS Office Suite installed on your computer? If so chances you have Msaccess, and i suggest you use access for your database. If msaccess is not installed get your office suite cd out and install the software. There is a learning curve, but give it a go and post your questions with the version of access your using and chances are someone will help.

I am working with the Microsoft Works Database program that comes with Windows XP. I am listing a number of books, their isbn's and their prices. I evidently punched a wrong button because now every time I enter a new book the price from the previous entry is automatically entered for the new book. For example, if the price for the previous book was 19.99 that is automatically entered as the price for the next book.

It's not a big problem, because I can override it by simply entering the correct price, but still it's annoying. Anyone know how I can undo this default price setting?

I want to create a new database using 'MS Works' 6.0 under Windows XP Home. I follow the 'Wizard's' instructions to launch "Create new blank data-

A:works suite 2003 database

This happens in Excel too, putting a column in alphabetical order is assumed to mean that you want all the rows to still contain the original values.

In Excel, you can highlight the data in the column and this sorts only that column - Then move on to the next column, etc.

If that doesn't work in Works, you may want to
sort the first column,
cut and paste the remaining columns into separate worksheets (one column, one worksheet) and
then sort them,
then copy them all back...

Whenever he tries to print something from Database (or go into print preview) he gets the following error:

The printer driver is missing or not valid.

Run the Windows Setup program to install the printer software again.

I have an access report that I would like users to be able to enter a start and end date. The report will be filtered to display data that falls between the two dates.

I have already created a form with date fields. I'm having a hard time figuring out how to use the form to filter the report. I also would like the report to display all data if teh user decides not to enter any dates.

How can this be done?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

A:Solved: Access 2007/Filter Report By Date Range

There are many ways to do it, but I would set the filter in the OpenReport method when the report is launched, and provide logic to either set the start and end dates to extreme values (like 1/1/1904 thru 1/1/2999), which programming purists would tell you to never do, or not set the filter at all if the user doesn't enter a date.

In the code for the button that launches the report:

dtStart = Nz(Me.StartDate,#1/1/1904#)
dtEnd = Nz(Me.EndDate,#1/1/2999#)
DoCmd.OpenReport "Report1", acViewReport, "", "[MyDate]>=#" & dtStart & "# And [MyDate]<= #" _
& dtEnd & "#", acNormal

--- OR ---

If Isnull(Me.StartDate) or Isnull(Me.EndDate) then
DoCmd.OpenReport "Report1", acViewReport, "", , acNormal
DoCmd.OpenReport "Report1", acViewReport, "", "[MyDate]>=#" & Me.StartDate & "# And [MyDate]<= #" & Me.EndDate & "#", acNormal
End If

The tricky part is getting tripped up by not including the #, designating a date literal.

Only if the user does not rename the file does the file expire correctly. I need the file to expire as this is a constantly updated/revised PDF and its important that my customers have the most current version. Is there a way to fix this either with Adobe or a third party app?

Hi all,
Can someone help me with this issue in the Crystal Report

I am using Crystal Report 2011 and Oracle database.
My query is to output some columns in 2 different table(A,B).
After run query, there is 126,978 rows in the result.
In table A, there are 36 different types. The result shows same
in the Oracle Sql Development and Crystal Report (126,978 rows).
it also shows 36 different types in the details section. But when I right click
on that column, there is 23 different types and missing other 13 types.
I tried many ways but without successful (still missing).
Is there any problem with the software? Data missing hence I cannot create correct
dynamic parameter. If it does not show all 36 different type, then my query possibly
wrong, but it can show in the details section, then browse data option should show all 36 types right?
Do you have any idea to solve this?

Thanks in advance.

Does anybody know the key combination to insert the date or time in a cell? Does Works spreadsheet even have these shortcut keys?

Hello This is my first thread here
I was wondering if anybody could please help me, I have a lot of photographs stored on my laptop...which is running Windows 7....and I'm trying to sort them into folders (I have a LOT of photographs). I'm still only learning how funky Windows 7 is but have now come across some problem. When-ever I ask Windows to group by date (even group by date modified...etc) it doesn't actually show the date at the top of each group.

Whatever version of Win I had before always put the actual date as the name of each was VERY there any tweak or box to click (or even some sneaky hack) that would fix this so it would give the date? Ty

Anybody know what combination of keys will do this?

A:Insert date / time in Works spreadsheet?

Why aren't you using Excel. Has much more functionality. I have a macro that I use for Time Stamping cells in Excel. Puts the Current Data and Time in a cell with the single click of a mouse.

I have created a report (spreadsheet) in Microsoft Works and Emailed it to a friend but he can't open it. He suggested that I convert the report/spreadsheet into Microsoft Word "format." Is this possible? Thanks for the help.

I have been trying to help a friend learn how to do form letters with his Microsoft Works Suite programs He has Windows XP SP We were able to successfully merge desired fields from a Works database but noticed that the format of date and time field results was not as desired The date field always merged as quot MM DD YYYY quot in the form letter no matter what format was used for date display in the database program He wanted to display for in Merging fields Suite or date Works time example quot November quot instead of quot quot Likewise the time field merged Merging date or time fields in Works Suite as quot hh mm ss AM Merging date or time fields in Works Suite PM quot when he wanted for example quot PM quot to display In Works on another computer his formatting carried over to the form letter from the database Not so in the version Our temporary fix was to format the date amp time fields in the database as quot text quot instead of quot date quot or quot time quot and then enter the exact display style wanted Then the merged value looked the same in the letter as it did in the database Is there a better solution to this problem nbsp

Hello, I am using Access 2000 and have created a database with a command button that opens up a report via a macro. I would like to know how to open up single reports instead of pushing a button that brings up every report, I've been able to open up reports that are based off of queries, queries that have paramenters that need to be inputted in order to bring up single unique records, but I would like to be able to just create a button that brings just that particular unique record-report off of that particular unique record on that form. Meaning that for a record that had just been inputted for John Doe on a form, I would like to know how to create a button on that form to pull up John Doe's single report without having to build a query that asks for a parameter. Is there anyway to do this?

A:Access-Printing a single report off of a single record from an Access database form

You will have to adapt this to your own form setup; but it's just using the Where line of the OpenReport macro action.

If on the form MyFormName you have two controls called txtFirstNm and txtLastNm, and in the query underlying the report you have two fields called FirstNm and LastNm, you would put into the Where line of the OpenReport action:

[FirstNm]=[Forms]![MyFormName]![txtFirstNm] And [LastNm]=[Forms]![MyFormName]![txtLastNm]
Hope that helps.

I can't figure out how to add a column to the right of all my data. I insert column, and it inserts a column LEFT of the column my cursor is in (the very last column). And I haven't figured out how to manipulate the columns to move them around like I can in Excel (which is still a hit or miss thing for me - anyone have the tip on how to do that, too?)

A:Adding database columns to the RIGHT of the last database column

For any curious, I did find a way... You have to open design view and add it in one of the blanks beneath your last entry.

Not quite as easy as just right-click > insert, but it works.

I'm building a database application in Visual Basic .NET and I want to know what is the equivalent code of this when I want to make a connection to mysql:

Protected connString As String = _
"Provider = Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;" & _
"Data Source = " & loc & "\dbProject.mdb;"

Private cn As OleDb.OleDbConnection = New OleDb.OleDbConnection(connString)

Private ConnectionString As String = connString

You would have to have the MySQL driver for it on the server regardless.

I don't support Access, nor have I been trained in it, but I've been asked if I can help in this problem.
An Access database connects externally to a SQLServer database at login time for the application. How do I find which external database they are connecting to? I know that there is a way to go behind the forms to see the source code, but I cant remember how to do this.
I cannot find an obvious User/System file dsn on the PC to give me a clue.
Thanks in advance

Here's the question- how do I open a form in an existing database from another db in Access 2010 using VBA and give it focus. I can open the external db and it's form but cannot figure how to give it focus. I'm trying to create a master form that will call various databases that each have a form. Seems simple, open the master menu, click on a button that then opens the called db and the associated form. Do my business exit the db and am back at the master form. I would be okay to just close the master db, all it has it the main menu or leave it open. Doesn't matter which I just want to open the called db and form and have its focus.
