Merging date or time fields in Works Suite

Q: Merging date or time fields in Works Suite

I have been trying to help a friend learn how to do form letters with his Microsoft Works Suite 2004 programs. He has Windows XP SP2. 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 "MM/DD/YYYY" in the form letter no matter what format was used for date display in the database program. He wanted to display, for example, "November 12, 2004" instead of "11/12/2004". Likewise, the time field merged as "hh:mm:ss AM/PM" when he wanted, for example, "11:25 PM" to display.
In Works 4.5 (on another computer), his formatting carried over to the form letter from the database. Not so in the 2004 version. Our temporary fix, was to format the date & time fields in the database as "text" instead of "date" or "time" 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?

Hi there,
I have an MS Access database (2000, but primarily operating on PC with Access 2010). The database logs wagons coming to and from our site. Mostly, these wagons are in and out in the same day, but it is possible for them to park up overnight, for which we charge a small fee.

The situation has now changed slightly, in that we now accept wagons staying on site for longer periods (usually a weekend), so I've been asked to introduce an Exit Date field as well, and correct the existing calcualtion of time on spent site.

Currently, the following fields appear in the main table (called Stays):

Arrival Date
Arrival Time
Exit Time

There is also a field called Duration, which (for some reason) is autofilled by an Update Query, with the Update To value set to:

IIF([Arrival Time]>[Exit Time],1440+DateDiff("n",[Arrival Time],[Exit Time]),DateDiff("n",[Arrival Time],[Exit Time]))​

This is clearly inaccurate - it assumes that if a wagon's exit time is earlier in the day than its arrival time, then it must have stayed for 1440 minutes + the (negative) difference between the two times, and if the exit time is later or equal to the arrival time, the wagons has been in and out of site in the same day.

As wagons could be on site for multiple days (so the 1440 mins figure could be wrong) and could leave x amount of days plus x amount of minutes after arriving (so the assumption that it's exited the same day as it arrived could be wrong),... Read more

Example, I have a Tae Kwon Do Studio, and my students are all doing test. I have the test form that I setup in excel, and in another file I have the name of all the students. How can I insert in the test file the name of the students that are testing??? Do I have to type the name one by one?

Here's the situation:

I have been given several access databases with contact information in them. The contact information has all the usual info (address, phone, etc.); however, the name format is two different fields: a first name, and a last name. My goal is to import all the database information into ACT!

I was planning on doing this by exporting a text file with comma seperated values; the only problem, though, is that the existing ACT! database doesn't have two name fields, and instead only has one "Contact" field.

Sooo.. my question is, would it be best to try and convert the names to one full name in access, or is there some way to import and convert them with ACT!? And, whichever way is best, how exactly would I go about doing that?

Thank you very much!!

We have a 232 page word document that includes many form fields (created with Developer > Legacy Tools > Text & Check Box Form Fields. We also have several pages that include a mail merge for Name, Mailing Address, From & To dates, etc.

The Mail Merge Fields come from an Excel file. Both Word & Excel are Office Standard 2010.

My problem is that in order to modify the Form Fields the document must be restricted for editing, but allowing adjustment to "Form Fields", however, once the file is linked with the Excel file, I am no longer able to restrict editing on the document. I do not have Design Mode turned on, The file is not Read Only, nor is the file saved as "Final".

How am I supposed to lock the document to allow our users to edit the form fields, while still maintaining the documents ability to pick up the merge fields?

Thank you!

A:Form Fields / Mail Merging & Locked Document issues

By design, mailmerge has never worked with formfields. Even if you leave the document unprotected for the merge, you will find all except any checkbox formfields get deleted during the merge.

Since you're using Word 2010, though, you could replace all the formfields with content controls. Those don't require forms protection and they'll survive a mailmerge. If you want to restrict post-merge editing to the use of the content controls, you can apply the 'filling in forms' protection at that stage.

Hello, I use online accounting software (KashFlow) and part of entering invoices involves clicking into a date input field.  It is one of those where a little calendar shows when you click into the field.  You can also manually type a date into this field too. However. On my brand new Yoga 920 using Chrome and Firefox the date input fields are greyed out and a red 'no access' icon shows when you hover over them.  But you can still click it and the calendar pops up as normal.  The only difference is you can NOT type into them anymore. When the source for the page is viewed it looks like the fields have been designated 'readonly'. There is no such problem on any other computer I own, even when using Chrome or Firefox.  The date fields work perfectly well on these other computers - even on a Sony Xperia tablet I own. The only browser that works properly on my Yoga is Edge.  The date fields work as they should.  It's just Chrome (my main browser) and Firefox where they don't work. This seems like a Lenovo-based problem.  A little Google has revealed a couple of similar problems with other Lenovo users. Does anyone have any clue on how to fix this?  This is utterly bizarre behaviour and it's preventing me from working properly. I have attached a photo showing the problem when using Chrome.  These fields should never be greyed out. Thanks,Matt

Hi people! I'm new to this forum, and have not been looking around much, but will from now on. While i'm a computer technician, Excel was never a strong point - i was always more of a 'hardware' guy. In any event, i have a question that needs some answering. Bear with me if some of my terminology is not %100 correct. I'll try my best.

I have a 3-page spreadsheet. On the 1st page, i have the values I input. Column A(A5 and down) is the date column. B - S are the numerical monetary values I put in, and T & U are the totals. One is a numerical total, the other a monetary total. On the 2nd page, Column A is again dates(B is reserved for manual input), and C & D are the row totals from the 1st page. I manually input data from E - M, and Column N is =SUM(B2:M2). You get the picture.

Here's where it gets tough. The 3rd page is just a break down of the monetray charges for any given day. What i want is for the 3rd page to update the date on the top to the day it is now, and then the monetray totals for that day only, or the day before, whichever I need. I guess What i want is if I change the date on the top of the spreadsheet page, it will update the totals in each of the cells i have underneath. It's not going to be printed, just for viewing on my screen. Right now, I have to input the data for a daily printout manually. If i can change the date at random, and get it to update the totals from the other page, that would be great.

Greetings, and thanks in advance for your help..

Awhile back I formatted my Windows 10 PCs to show ddd dd-mmm-yyyy on my taskbar clock. This worked happily on my desktop and laptop for months, maybe even a year +

Now (probably starting in the past couple days, if not today), on one of those two PC's, this format will no longer display. It is Okay on the other PC.
What has changed that the taskbar clock space used to expand to fit the "short date" format, but now it will no longer expand - and instead just refuses to display the date at all. (NOTE: I've verified the issue by testing shorter formats -- short formats, like "ddd" show up correctly. Only if you request a longer format will the date not display - evidently because it is too long for the clock area. )

Additional Notes that may help:

* "Working" pc is running build 10586 PC with too small a clock space that won't expand -- Build 14393

*Other differences: Notification/Action center Icon is left of clock on the working PC - Right of clock on the non-working
Right- Clicking on task bar gives "properties" option on working PC -- But "Settings" option on the non-working

( I don't want to prejudice responses - but clearly the implication to me is that some recent OS update is most likely the culprit.)

Thank You

I have around 10 - 15 sheets within the same excle file which is effectively acting as one tab per resource within my consultancy team. These are acting a a record of the billable & non billable hours per resource and therefore each line is primarily driven by date (2011 - 2013), with 1:N ratio items of the following: Client, Contract, Role, Days & hrs (effectively 1 line per date, resource, client & contract combination + time billed within the std 8 hr working day).

A:Solved: Pivot multiple sheets for text, date and decimal fields

Hi there, welcome to the board!

I feel your frustration. Unfortunately your data structure isn't conducive for a PivotTable data model. But there is hope! You have some options here. First of all we need to know what version you're using. If you have 2010, well, you're going to really like what I'm about to tell you, and if you don't have it, it's a good reason to upgrade! 2010 has a new add-in called PowerPivot. Think of it as PivotTable's on bulk steroids. The benefit you would see - the ability to select multiple data sources. This means you can have multiple data tables/sheets as your data source, and select their relationships. Think of it like an Access table/relationship. It's the best feature we've seen in Excel since the PivotTable itself.

So if you have 2010, this is good news. However, if you don't have 2010, we need to consolidate your data to a single data structure. Whether that is putting it all on one sheet, or exporting to Access, or whatever, that's what needs to happen.

I'm not entirely sure what you mean about not getting the row level structure. Is there any way you can post the file?

Works 6.0 and Works Suite 2006 problem

I now have MS Works 6.0 and am thinking about buying and installing Works Suite 2006. The reason is that I have a few databases on Works 6.0 with a number column and an item column. I used to print off the database and get a printout with the columns side by side. Now, for some reason, when I print out I get the items printed first, with no numbers column, and then the numbers column prints out with no item column. I have no idea how to fix that. If anyone happens to know how to fix that, I will just keep Works 6 and spend the money on wine, women and song. Otherwise, I will get Works Suite 2006 and hope that it doesn't have that problem, and also that I what I now have in Works 6.0 will show up in Works Suite 2006 when I install it.

I also presume that I do not want to uninstall Works 6.0 before installing Works Suite so that I won't lose what is on Works 6.0. Is that right?

Thank you, grandpaw

It appears that your problem may be caused by a change in your printer settings,especially if the spreadsheets appear normally when you view them. Have you tried to redo these? Upgrading Works (assuming the old spreadsheets will be compatible) seems an expensive way to fix a simple problem, and an upgrade may not fix it if the printing settings remain the same.

A:Windows XP time/date clock looses time after shut down.

Welcome to TSG...A bad CMOS battery will cause your machine to lose time. If the system is four years old, you're eligible for that issue...also, if the system has spent any lengthy amount of time (weeks or more) unplugged from AC power, it's more likely to happen.

Next reboot (after leaving it overnight), enter BIOS (setup) and see if the time there is slipping as well.

The battery itself (if that's what's bad) is cheap to replace...less than five bucks.

Please give us some specs on the hardware-make, model, etc.-and we can help you with battery replacement instructions.

Hello, I'm trying to figure out a way to calculate time fields in a database, I would like to know how to add time fields from two text boxes so that the amount of hours will display in a Total Hours text box. I am using two text boxes, Start Time and End Time, Total Hours is where the total will be displayed in amount of hours from the two time fields, an example would be 8:00 AM (in Start Time) and 10:30 AM (in End Time) and 2.5 being in Total Hours. On a form, when typed in the Control Source property for Total Time, =DateDiff("h",[Start Time],[End Time]) seems to work, but it is not inputting the sum in the main table where all of the fields are kept, is there any way the total can be done and kept in the main table? Also, I would like to include a Total Hours text box with the totals of the Total Time fields because I would like to add more text boxes on a form. Can somebody help?

If I have regular Works on my computer and want to change to Works Suite 2003 what do I have to do first. Uninstall Works or what? I am running Window xp home.

A:Works Suite

Last time I did a Works install it did find an old version already partially installed (long story...customer tried getting help from four or five friends before calling me, etc.) and required it be uninstalled first. So just start the install of the newer version and if it needs the older version uninstalled first, it'll tell you.

If you've saved all the documents, pictures, etc., that you created in the old Works program in the My Documents folder, they won't be disturbed. However, some of the older Works suites save by default to a subfolder of the Works folder, so make sure your documents are in a safe place (copy them to My Documents, for example) before uninstalling.

I recommend you copy rather than move them because if something goes wrong (power outage, for example) during a move process, you can lose the files being moved. If something goes wrong during a copy process, you just start over.

I ended up calling Gateway and spending over 2 1/2 hours on the phone with three different tech support people and after trying several things with them...they finally told me that something was wrong with the Works Suite disk (that I got in Jan from them) and that it was not under warranty. So basically tough luck. Well, I was going to buy another software package today but I brought the disk to work with me and tried to upload it on my work computer and it worked!!! Now, I don't know what to do. Gateway did have me try other disks and they would upload. Any ideas on what I could be doing wrong?

I am using Access 2010, I have certain fields on the form that need to be entered in Arabic and certain in English. I have set the keyboard language for the text box to be "Arabic" (for text in Arabic) and "English" for text in English. When I do this, it takes a little more time to move between fields. How can I overcome this problem. In Office Xp, I never had this problem.

A:Access 2010 - Moving between fields takes time

Works Suite 6.0 Spreadsheet
If I want to enter an address in a cell, I would enter 123 Main St.
However when I enter 123 and press the spacebar, apparently nothing happens to indicate a space. If I then enter the word Main, the space will then show in that cell. Why does the space not appear at first.
Thank you

A:Spacebar Works Suite 6.0

Because 123 is a numeric value and you are using a spreadsheet, designed to perform calculations.

As soon as you enter a non numeric value (M), the spreadsheet determines that you are not wanting a number al all, and reverts to text formatting for the cell?

Good morning, I hope that someone can assist me in my endeavour. Some years ago, maybe 6 to be exact, I had Microsoft Works 6 Suite and I think the operating system was Windows 95 or was it 98, those in the know will know! I am a genealogy buff and saved all my family history to CD using Works 6. These CD's have not been used since.

I now have Vista and Microsoft Office Home and Student 2007. I recently found the CD's and put them into the drive to check out my "old" information and the error message I get is: CD appears to be corrupted. I cannot understand this - why did it happen?

So I thought I would try to convert them to my current program BUT they will still not open for me to do this. I even downloaded a Works 6-9 conversion program 4.5MB but cannot open still.

Can anyone tell me if all my history is useless to me now. It was many years researching.

Help Please.

Hello again,

Now, here's my little dilemma; I am trying to install a new version of Microsoft Works Suite 2005 on a laptop computer.With the installation disc in situ, ready for installing, a message appears on the screen stating that for the installation to continue, all open programs should be closed and a list of these programs is shown. When I say list it simply advises that - iexplorer.exe - needs to close and that windows will close it for me by clicking on the relevant button. However nothing happens and so I have to attempt to close it manually.

On entering the task manger and opening processes, highlighting the -iexplorer.exe - and giving the command end task, it removes it's self from the list, but immediately then replicates itself in a randomly selected place within the working process list. Question , how do I close this process to enable installation of the software?

As a post scipt the internet service provider is AOL. ( By the way, this is not my laptop, but a friends ).

Hi Tony.
It's most likely infected.
iexplorer.exe is associated with adware,spyware and trojans.
Better start there first.

I normally have works suite 2003 installed in my computer. Well I had to uninstall it for other reasons and when it was OK to reinstall Everything worked except for Windows Word. I keep getting a message "The patch package could not be opened. Verify that the patch package exist and that you can access it, or contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid Windows Installer patch package." Now I know it a valid installer package because I have installed it, twice. I don't understand why everything else installed fine but not Word.
Also how do you remove Ad-aware 6.0? I can't seem to remove it at all. It says "could not open INSTALL.LOG file.

Regarding the Word error, it looks like the Windows Installer file may be corrupt.

A solution may be found here, in the nature of a clean-up program from MS.

I'm having a recurring error in Microsoft Works Suite, specifically under WORD and TASK LAUNCHER.
Making changes to certain task documents initially prompted error message and, "GLOBAL CHANGES HAVE BEEN MADE TO THE TEMPLATE..." Trying to get back in, "THE DOCUMENT JOUWDUZ.WIZ CAUSED A SERIOUS PROBLEM THE LAST TIME IT WAS OPEN..." then again, with NORMAL.DOT and GROWDUS.WIZ.
I have reinstalled the program, that didn't work.
I used system restore, and the problem is \still there.
I'm at my wits end... Does anyone know anything about this?

A:Templates / Xp Works Suite

Try renaming NORMAL.DOT to NORMAL.old, which will be recreated automatically.
