Q: (Resolved) Compare this month's sales to this month last year

I'm trying to create an Access query that compares invoices generated in May of 2002 to invoices generated in May of 2003 so we can see how much money we made compared to last year at this time.

I've tried datediff, dateserial, dateadd but can't seem to get it right. Can some kind soul give me a hand here?

Preferred Solution: (Resolved) Compare this month's sales to this month last year

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: (Resolved) Compare this month's sales to this month last year

I figured it out. Had to use "between". I was trying to just hone in on a particular month last year but I guess that was the lazy way out. Anyway, here's what I ended up with to compare May 02 to May 03:

Between DateSerial(Year(Date())-1,Month(Date())-1,1) And DateSerial(Year(Date())-1,Month(Date()),1)-1

i have about seven years of data i need to graph out. but it is very simple data.

i need something which will plot out how many widgets i have sold per day, per month, per year in a way that i can compare each year against eachother. basically the same way that some webservers counts how many hits you have had each day, and records those for webmasters to view at their leisure based on day, month, or year. but then i want to be able to take each year and basically compare them to eachother, not necessarilly on the same chart (tho that would be nice), but at least on the same page.

i want to be able to plot out 365/6 days with the corresponding number of widgets sold. and as if that wasn't enough, i want to be able to tell which days were sundays. if the full year isn't doable, i want to at least be able to do a full month.

Freeware would be fantabulous, but if the program is worth it, i think i could swing some money to buy something.

any ideas?

If you?re not a big fan of Windows 10 and planning to purchase a new computer, you'd better hurry up because this month both Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 reach their end-of-sales deadlines.

October 31 is the last day when you are able to purchase a new computer running any of the two operating systems, with Microsoft to then focus exclusively on Windows 10 for new configurations.

But even though both Windows 7 and 8.1 are reaching their end-of-sales dates this month, this doesn?t necessarily mean that PCs that come with these versions pre-installed will disappear all of a sudden. Microsoft will still allow sales of devices that were in stock before the deadline, but no new units would be shipped starting November 1.

Windows 10, the only version pre-installed on new PCs
Moreover, what?s important to note is that this deadline only refers to sales and has nothing to do with updates. Both Windows 7 and 8.1 will continue to receive updates until January 2020 and January 2023, respectively.

?End of sales refers to the date when a particular version of Windows is no longer shipped to retailers or Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs). Examples of OEMS are Dell and Toshiba - PC manufacturers who often preinstall Windows software,? Microsoft explains.

?Note that when the retail software product reaches its end of sales date, it can still be purchased through OEMs (the company tha... Read more

I'm trying to figure out how to display the current month and year but the day would always be the first. So for an example today's date is 1/24/2011, but I would want it to display 1/1/2011. This would be true on all the months through the year.
Any help would be appreciated.

A:Excel Month and Year

Surely that's a typo. You want 1/24/2011 to display as 1/1/2011? Or is it as 24/1/2011.

As I understand it, Excel takes the default from your system format but this can be overridden. If you want to make the change everywhere look at changing the date format in your own regional settings. If you want to do it specifically in one Excel workbook, you'll need to use the format cells dialogue to change the formatting.

PS For the future, it's much easier for us to help people if they provide a lot of information. Things like the version of Office and the version of Windows mean that we can give precise instructions on how to do things rather than vague ones about what to do.

New to QuattroPro. Have list where membership expiration date is mm/yy. How do I enter them (establish date format) and how do I sort by year first, month second?

A:QuattroPro sort by month/year

Hi, welcome to the forum.

I don't have QuattoPro but since it works the same as Excel I suggest you add another column with the same value as the expiration data but formatted as yymm and sort this one.

I would personally always start with the yaer and then the month because of sorting purposes.

Encountered a small but irritating problem between Access 2000 and Access 2003. Designed a table and input form in Access 2000 that contain a date field to capture credit card expiration dates, which are always only month and year. Made the format "m/yy" with an input mask of #0/00;0;_. Works perfectly in my Access 2000, but when I installed the application on a client's (non-profit org.) computers, which have Access 2003, every entry of a year other than this year (06) gets changed to 06. E.g., if the user enters 0508 and tabs to the next field, it displays "5/06". It behaves as though it thinks you entered only the month and DAY, but since the format has to be m/yy, it displays the 5 and tacks on the current year.

Access (at least Access 2000) does not offer a built-in month/year format. So how can I make the field understand that what goes in there is supposed to be only month and year? Is it possible to do with a Date/Time field type, or do I need to make it Text, or what?

my mom has 6 years of photos on one of her 500GB HD's. She hates windows 7. Her latest complaint that I have not been able to figure out is folder sorting.

Mom has a folder called "camera dump" in the "my pictures" folder.
In the camera dump she has 6 years of folders containing photographs.

Currently windows 7 is sorting the left side screen like this:


The problem is mom wants them in proper chronological order.. In other words, all of 2011 in proper order Jan to Dec, and 2012 after that, and 2013 after that.

Can anyone tell me how to do that? Ive tried just about every sorting option I can find in windows 7.
I suggested to her that she use YEAR master folders, then put the months inside as sub folders.

the name of the column is dob (date of birth) and the format is standard date/time, displayed normally as 01/01/2009 etc ....

Our "advanced resolution person" (Rajesh) who has been helping us with our incident has not been available at all this week, however we were told last night by another member of the escalation team (Rohan) that only Rajesh can help us. Rajesh told me that I could get help thru technical support or another member of advanced resolution, but tech support also told me that since my case had been escalated that they were not allowed to assist with my computer (this was on 3/7/17).

Here is a run-down of the issue:

On 1/19/17 I bought a 13 inch 2-n-1 computer from Dell Outlet. It was listed as NEW (not refurbished).
Immediately when I received it, it did not work properly. I contacted dell via phone. We spent over 2 hours on the phone/computer with technical support, but due to the computer running so incredibly slowly, the tech support person was not able to complete his tests because the computer froze.
I could not return the computer because I was advised that I would forfeit the promotion code that had been used (since it was now past the expiration date) and that my only option was to send it in for service (this only happened after my initial email to you on 1/30/17).
I mailed it in on 1/31/17 and did not get it back until 2/14/17 two weeks later. The motherboard and hard drive had been replaced.
On 2/16/17 I turned it on, and IT STILL DID NOT WORK. If I open even one program or application the whole computer runs so slowly it freezes up.

This just in from ZDnet by Ed Bott, that MSFT will cease to allow new machines to be sold with Win7 on them.  I've not read the article yet, but it should be self explanatory.  So do your shopping now. That's what I'm going to do.  Now.
Ironically, I just now uploaded three videos showing what business laptops are being sold by Lenovo, Dell, HP to prove that they aren't selling Win10 machines.  They are using Win8.1 licenses' downgrade rights to sell Win7.  The videos are updates on the ones I did back at the beginning of September, to see if the September results were still valid.
You can see the videos here (Dell), here (HP) and here (Lenovo, but the video shows the Win7 machines sold out);  vids were made 10/26 and at least Dell has radically changed its website interface now.  The videos are boring, though.  Better to just go to the websites, instead.
The Dell machines shown in the video are mostly gone, now; or, the website redesign makes it look that way.  The machines shown in the video are now (right now, this minute) showing as only available preconfigured in Win7Pro 64 or Win10.  When just now I did a mock purchase, those were the only options:  not, Win8.  You'll find more Win8 machines available on HP.
Thank you for your time.  So much of my life would be so much worse, were it not for BC.  I hope to 'give back'.  Thank you again.

Going to try here one more time before I scrap this computer. About a month ago I got the "fake anti-virus" virus. I've seen it called the "Rogue anti virus". I deleted the virus (presumably), but major damage seems to be irreversible.

1) Computer is extremely slow now; it seems to by constantly running something (making a lot of noise, lights flashing, etc.). Under task manager nothing unusual is running. Just getting firefox to open is a major chore, as it usually results in "program is not responding".

2) Exe. files no longer work. If I place a video game into the disc try, the installer will not open. For example a blizzard game will come up as "blizzardinstaller.exe" under task manager, but then it will close within 5 seconds. I also have problems launching about 50% of exe. programs that are already installed, and if they do launch then they are impossible to use due to the lag which use to never be a issue.

The virus deleted all system restore points when it deleted the system restore program.

In its current state this computer is almost impossible to work on (super laggy). Ideally, I would like to do a full system restore (I don't have a disc). Is there a way to do a full system restore on Win 7 during the start up process? I've tried the majority of the F keys, but have yet to find anything.

I have a media rota as an Excel spreadsheet for tech team activities for Sundays at my church. I want to highlight, using conditional formatting, the first Sunday of the month and to colour-band alternate months. I could do this manually each time I issue the rota, but it would save a little time if the colours could automatically be set when I determine the activity dates. The rota covers four months at a time (see attached).

I set the starting date by typing into cell A5. I know how to use Conditional Formatting but don't know how to calculate the first Sunday. The "first Sunday" formatting would of course be applied to all dates in the A column, and the banding to all cells between A5 and F22, so there are four cells that would need to accommodate both - but maybe I'm running before I can walk!

Hello community,
I am extremely frustrated. Having paid a lot of money for this laptop, there seems to be something new wrong with it each month. From screen freezes, to video freezing, to audio going mute, from the keyboard beginning to type in a whole other language, to the mouse clicks getting stuck, it's all gone wrong. Not only that but I am unable to get good quality display on any Adobe CS apps because all the icons are extremely small and it is impossible to operate them, and when I change the aspect ratio, I get poor quality, which defeats the purpose of having such an advanced computer.

To be fair, I bought this computer, because I do not own any apple products and this laptop seemed like the best alternative. Now, I wish I had just gotten an Apple Mac. It has been 6 months and I'm afraid that I'm stuck with it and it's now and extremely expensive devise to check my email and watch videos (when it's functioning properly) and I HATE HATE HATE WINDOWS 10. After all the issues I've had with it I want to just give it back and get my money back because I cannot have a computer that is so unpredictable and glitchy and the only way to fix it is to force quit (which would mean losing a lot of work had I been editing or designing). Customer service has tried fixing things before with remote access but alas, there are still issues with it. How can I get them to take it back and get my money back? It has been a nightmare of 6 months! Please, help!

Hi guys,

I was told to post my question in here by the guys in the chatroom. Not sure if this is the correct bit, so please redirect me if not.

Since around January I have had problems with Windows Vista Home on my pc. The computer seemed to work fine while my brother had it, but has taken a dislike to me for some reason. It has been inundated with viruses and trojans and I have so far spent close to ?250 on pc repairs and call-outs and have had my bank account hacked into through the internet banking site (and no, I didn't give out any details or click on any weird links), which initially made me aware that I had some sort of trojan/virus on my pc. The repair guys said they had removed several nasty things from the pc and it should be working fine. They installed AVG anti-virus. I've also had numerous discussions on the phone with microsoft technical help and paid for someone to come to my house to take a look as I wondered if I had set something up wrong myself. Most of the other problems were resolved, but the one that keeps returning is the stupid message when I try to use the internet. It will run okay for a minute or two, then the page goes blank and it tells me Microsoft Explorer has stopped working and it closes itself. Then I get another message saying Explorer is restarting and a new page comes up.

This week I tried a system restore (as suggested on another forum) to no avail. I have pretty much given up and run out of money. One of the guys in the chat... Read more

This started happening, like I said, about one month ago. I was never able to catch the number of the errors though as they would always happen at random time and turn my computer off immediately after. I thought I had fixed these by installing windows XP updates, and I was able to play the games that would crash again.

Two days ago, I got a different Blue Screen (Sorry again I'm very bad at catching the numbers ) so I decided to put in the new ram I had gotten recently.

Last night I got a blue screen while I was playing a game, and a blue screen while I was logging back on, I believe one of them was an "irql_not_less_or_equal" error while the other was an 0x0C5 error. I did system restore, and right now it at least allows me to log in and use firefox.

Last night I received my 3rd blue screen error in about a month. That one and the previous one said "system service exception (netio.sys)." I forget if the first time this happened the error listed the same.

Anyway, here's my log file (I hope it's alright. It saved on it's own with no prompts).

I'm working on an Acer R3-131T laptop with 4GB RAM. As far as I know, I have the most updated drivers. My computer came equipped with the "Acer Care Centre" which hasn't listed new updates for a month or so. Going directly to Acer's website there weren't any new updates that seemed applicable to me at this time.

I understand from reading another thread that some drivers aren't 100% compatible with Win10, and I'm assuming that's the issue here; just not sure which one(s) I need to do anything with.

Thanks in advance for your time!

Hello, Iposted my problem on here a month ago and still noone has responded. I need some serious help with a few problems that have recently occured on my computer. I am currently using windows XP and the internet has been running slow and a program called Virus Remover 2008 has taken over my computer. It stays docked on my desktop and constantly causes pop-ups and the computer to move extremely slow. I have used this site before a couple years ago so I am slightly familiar with the procedures done here. Thanks for your help. Here is my HiJack Log.....

So far this month I have had 4 BSOD's. It seems like I'm doing something different each time I get one. After I had my 3rd BSOD I decided to replace my power supply. So, I went from a 550W Rosewill PSU to a 650W Corsair PSU.

I installed the new PSU Tuesday night and two days later I'm still getting these BSODs so a new PSU obviously didn't fix the issue.

One of the BSODs happened when I was surfing the internet, another happened when watching a video from my desktop, and the other 2 happened when I wasn't even sitting in front of my computer. It was just sitting on the desktop at the time of the BSOD.

I've attached the Performance log html and the jcgriff folder I read I was supposed to attach along with a notepad of the most recent BSOD.

I'd appreciate any help I can get in figuring out what is causing these.

Vista 64 bit
MOBO: Asus P5Q Pro
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 Wolfdale 3.0 Ghz
Video Card: Nvidia GeForce 9800 GT
RAM: 4GB of G.Skill DDR2 1066
PSU: Corsair Enthusiast Series TX650 V2 650W

A:4th BSOD this month. Please help.


Two attached dumps, one from this month and the other from June. Both are faulting L1E60x64.sys which is the Atheros AR8121/AR8113/AR8114 PCI-E Ethernet Controller driver.

I'd recommend updating your networking drivers to their latest version. Atheros is really annoying with their drivers as they're hard to track down at times.

i leave my computer on 24/7. It has a 400 Watt power supply and i have 1 17" LCD LG flatron monitor which i physically turn off during the night. I was wondering what exactly it would cost each month on my power bill. It cost 6 cents per killowatt per hour.

A:How much will it cost a month


Power to run HD: 400 Watts

Energy = Power * Time
Energy = 400W * 744 (31 days)
Energy = 0.4kW * 744
Energy = 297.6kWh

Cost = 297.6 * 6cents
Cost = 1786cents / $17.86 approx


Power to run screen: 40 Watts

Energy = Power * Time
Energy = 40W * 434 (31 days with screen off for 9hrs while you sleep)
Energy = 0.04kW * 434
Energy = 17.36kWh

Cost = 17.36 * 6cents
Cost = 104cents / $1.04 approx


Total Cost per month(approx) = Cost of Running Screen + Cost of Running HD
Total Cost per month(approx) = $1.04 + $17.86
Total Cost per month(approx) = $18.90

Hope that helped?

First the computer was a present so I really do not know what I am doing. I have researched multiple steps to take in trying to correct BSOD. Some days it runs smooth while others I can get 5 BSOD a day.

Once the BSOD started getting out of hand I ran a DISK error check, a Disk cleanup, then I defraged the computer. I also made sure that all drivers were up to date and I ran a virus scanner.

This helped for around 1 week. Now they are back and as of today I have experienced 4 BSOD. I have attached the past 5 minidump files. Any help would be appreciated.

A:37 BSODs in one month!

You actually counted 37 BSOD's in a month? That's about as exciting as watching grass grow :rolleyes: Try resetting the bios to the default settings. If you don't know how to do this, get a friend to help you

Hi Vixen408 and welcome to TSF.

Are you able to get into Safe Mode? Tap or hold F8 as your computer first starts up. You should then be presented with a few options. Choose Safe Mode. If the computer then opens (it may look slightly different) post back for further instruction.

Also, do you have you Windows 7 disk? What is the make and model of your computer?

FWIW, I think Microsoft fixed the problem for me with the DVD player between beta and RC1.

Microsoft seems to be able to keep everything within its control in regards to builds in the past month. Sure, there have been frequent reports of builds being built, but no build in the last month has been leaked. Are Microsoft employees not leaking because they are scared of getting caught?

A:No leaks in over a month

A couple of MS employees were supposedly fired over leaks. Whether true or not, it apparently had the desired effect of scaring others from leaking. A Guy
