I have a database that tracks products and each product has a code. I'm trying to create a formula in a query that will multiply only 2 codes by 6% and the rest by 12%. Each code has an amount attached to it within one invoice, and this is the amount I need multiplied for a separate report.
Thank you so much for any help.

I'm trying to generate a formula that will tell me the Median outcome from a query. Is there a standard formula for Median in Access?

If the results of my query (for example) are 1 through 100 rows, I want the formula to count the number of rows, divide by 2 and tell me the value of a particular field in the middle row.

Hypothetical example:

Count of [ID#]=100/2 tell me the value of [Amount] in row 50

Not sure if this makes any sense to anyone but I'd appreciate any help.


A:Solved: Access Formula in report

Paintergrrl, you are the first person to post on here who actually wants a Median value for real, why I don't know, because to me it is a pretty meaningless value.
Access doesn't have such a Function, although it has quite a few simple Statistical functions.
So it will have to be done as you have outlined, you can obtain the record count either in a Query or using a VBA Recordset, but to get the Median Record you have use to use a VBA recordset.

I'm running windows 7 and just created a very simple access database that requires a formula, I hope someone can help me out.

In the form I created there are 3 fields:

total Cholesterol
Choles/HDL Ratio

The Choles/HDL Ratio value is determined by dividing the total Cholesterol value by the HDL value.
I know that the formula must be written in the form design window - but I don't know the formula.

Thanks for your attention and cooperation.

I have a table with a text field (call it "NbrCounter") that holds data in the following format:


I'm wondering if there is a way to write an update query that would strip off the numbers on the right and put them into a new number column.

In Excel I would simply write a function like =RIGHT(E6,LEN(E6)-6) which would strip off 6 characters starting from the left, leaving just the numbers. Is there anything similar I can do in Access?


A:Solved: Access update query formula

still have those functions and MID

mid = http://www.techonthenet.com/access/functions/string/mid.php
left = http://www.techonthenet.com/access/functions/string/left.php
right = http://www.techonthenet.com/access/functions/string/right.php
length = http://www.techonthenet.com/access/functions/string/len.php

so you should be able to do something the same
something like - dont have access in front of me

so this should start at character 7 (the 1st part of the number and then take 6 away from the length of the string and so extract the number

sorry its not the exact syntax

Okay easy question for today.

I have a query with a field called "min". I want to create another field that takes the value of "min" and multiplies it by 1.25.

I have tried the following:

Extra time: [min]*1.25
This just returns a blank field called extra time. What is the correct expression?


A:Solved: Access Query: creating a formula

The correct formula is
ExtraTime: [min]*1.25

I am not sure why yours is not working, other than the space between Extra & Time.

I am attempting to run an update query that compares data from another column then updates the date column. The formula I have is

IIf(([Frequency]=1),([Next Day Off]+7) Or ([Frequency]=2),([Next Day Off]+14))

I can only get one of them to work correctly. Either the first formula works or the second part of it works but not both.

What am I doing wrong?

Any suggestions?

I have an Access 2003 db that exports percentages for project reps, equaling 100%. For instance:

Sally 34%
Bob 23%
Ed 12%


However, some reps are involved with projects that have very small numbers, so I end up with lots of Jon 1% and Megan 2% values.

Ultimately, I shoot these values over to Excel, where they are charted. Instead of every rep with any project hours, I would like only for the top, say, 90% of project reps to show. Then, for those bottom 10%, just a value called "Other" with the percentage. This wouldn't always be 10% of course, but could be 9% or 8% depending on how large a percentage the top reps occupy. So, it would look something like:

Sally 34%
Bob 23%
Mike 22%
Ed 12%
Other 9% (which would actually be Chris 6%, Megan 2%, and Jon 1%)
There's a very roundabout way I can do this in Excel, but I'm sure there's a way to do it in Access before export as well. Any ideas on how this would work?

I would be more than willing to explain further, offer screenshots, or whatevs.


A:Solved: Formula help for Access 2003 query builder

Well it sounds easy when you write it, but I think you will find that it is virtually impossible to do in an Access query,
You can of course select the Top "N" number of reps in a query, but that is fixed & would not necessarally equate to 90% or anywhere near it. You could of course do it with a Top N query and VBA, the simplest way would be to use the VBA to put the (0% Reps & their percentages in to a Temporary table to export to Excel.

based on this...
​...I will be storing values calculated on a few formulas in the DB, I wonder if thers is some sort of recommended way to do it?

So far my approach would be like this:

Ctl A - input field using table field as 'data source'
Ctl B - input field using table field as 'data source'
Ctl C - unbound field with formula to calculate and show on screen the Resulting Value.
Ctl D - "print" field where Results are 'echoed' so they get stored in the bound table field (using table field as 'data source')

I am using C and D because the source of C is a formula instead of a table field and therefore it can't be stored.
Maybe there is a way to avoid this and I should do that instead?

I got two questions if anyone can offer a help:

Q1: in DVD List 1 for D0112 i can't show name under Star 1 due to my formulas

Star1: IIf(IsNull([Starring]),"",IIf([CommaPos]<>"",Left([Starring],[CommaPos]-1),""))

Star2: IIf(IsNull([Starring]),"",IIf([Comma],Right([Starring],Len([Starring])-

my formula assumes there are two names separated by a comma. Example:
Tom Cruise, Meg Ryan

so i can break up the text and it becomes

Tom Cruise

Meg Ryan

(i need to keep IIf(IsNull([Starring]),"" otherwise it will display #error# by the way.)

However when there is a single name nothing shows (because formula can't locate a comma so shows nothing as it is designed). Is there anyway i can play with formula to show a single name?

Q2: in DVD List 1 for D0114 i can't show brief description under Star1 and Star2

Sometimes we have documentaries so instead of movie star names we type brief description of the movie. Example: 30 years after Vietnam war.

Due to my formula nothing being displayed. Is there anyway i can play with formula so that when there is no comma in the sentence formula should display whole thing?

=IF((TODAY()-R5)>183, "Overdue", "Current"), IF(R5="","N/A")

I added the condition in bold letters so as not to return the OVERDUE value if the cell is blank but it's not working. the first set of conditions work just fine. thanks for any help.

A:Solved: If, then formula error - Excel

the format of the IF condition is

TEST , True, False

what you have is an extra bit in bold that IF will not work with

You need to re structure the formula to have an imbedded IF

= IF( R5="", "N/A" , IF( (TODAY()-R5)>183), "Overdue", "Current") )

SO you test for a blank cell in R5 first - if thats true then "n/a"
BUT if its false
then you do a 2nd IF statement for the condition

I have not put into excel - so i hope the syntax is OK - brackets maybe wrong

I am running a sales spreadsheet that requires sales entered each day. I use a simple formula to run a continuous total starting at Monday and ending Sunday (1st cell for sales input is B4, second D4, third F4 and so on. 1st Cell for accumulated sales is C4, second E4 and third G4 and so on.
I use B4+D4 to caluculate the running total in E4 or example,and to eliminate that total appearing in G4 where the next formula is B4+D4+F4 I precede that with an IF formula IF(E4=0,'', ). This way I only show the current Week to date totals, not the upcoming days in the rest of the week. My problem lies in Holidays. If for instance D4, the Tuesday was a holiday and I enter either "holiday" or just leave it blank, the rest of the weeks formula will not work. I get a Value message. How can I achieve my goal of getting a daily week to date total without having it show in the upcoming days AND have a holiday in there too??? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you John

I use Excel 2000. I would like to know if I can put a formula in a cell and then copy the result to paste elsewhere.

For example, let's say that in column A I make a list that starts with 4 in cell A1. Then A2 contains the formula =A1+2. A3 contains A3+2, and so on through A10. So I end up with the list 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22 in cells A1-A10.

But now, if I want to copy the result in A8 (18) and paste it elsewhere, can I do it? I don't want to copy & paste the formula because the formula will not give the correct result if the cell is not in the original sequence. I want to copy & paste 18 to a new cell, not the formula =A7+2. Can it be done? Thanks.

Here's the deal

I am linking through excel 2007 to an access 2007 DB Query (with columns A & B).
Column A & B show correctly in excel I have added a third column C, to calculate the running sum of A&B
C1 = Running Sum
C2 = (A2+B2)
C3 = (A3+B3)+C2
C4 = (A4+B4)+C3
C5 = (A5+B5)+C4
C6 = (A6+B6)+C5
...and so on and so forth...

Now I hit the refresh external data button and ......$%##!!!
Suddenly Excel in all his wisdom decided that he feels the need to edit my formula...
Now it reads as follow:
C1 = Running Sum
C2 = (A2+B2)+C1 //the "+C1" is automatically inserted by Excel & results in a Error
C3 = (A3+B3)+C2
C4 = (A4+B4)+C3
C5 = (A5+B5)+C4
C6 = (A6+B6)+C5
...and so on and so forth...

I am working on General Journal on access, and I am trying to add the sum function (for all debit and credit separately) on the footer. For some reason, I am unable to do so. Can any one suggest the easiest way to accomplish this?

A:MS Access formula

I you are referring to the page footer then you can't calculate there. You should use the grouping option, in there you will find the option to add a goup header and footer.

Place your text controls in the header and your sum calculation in the footer. If you just want the over all total then leave your controls in the detail section and put the Sum in the REPORT footer.

Depending on the level of detail you will have to play around with it. Move them around and rerun the report to see how it changes. Grouping will give you the option of keeping records together by for example: Customer, Account, year, Month etc.. You can repeat the header section if it over runs a page.

Alright, maybe this is simple for some but I haven't gotten into this part of Access or VB. I have a table that has a field( I'll call it field 3) that sometimes has a value and sometimes doesn't, I was using this field to do a small calculation in a report. The problem comes in when there is no data in the field it returns a zero. The expression for the report text box is "=(field1*field2)*field3", which works great as long as the value in field3 is 1 or more. How do I tell Access to use "1" if field3 is <=0 ??

Hi there

I'm starting to learn Access. I have created a table and some queries based on my table. One of the colums in the table called "bus" is called "BusAge". I have been calculating the age of the bus in the "BusAge" column on an excel spread sheet. In other words I take today's date and subract it from a previous date and divide by 365 (=(now()-A1)/365). I then manually input these numbers into my Access table in the column called "BusAge". Then I do my queries.

I know that I can import the excel table into my Access data base. I also know that I can create a link to my Excel spread sheet. I want to avoid doing these kinds of steps if possible.

Is there a way that Access can do this for me automatically in the talble using a formula or a macro? I can do the formula in the query but that is of no use to me. I need the formula in the table. Is this possible or not?

This should be simple - why can't I get it?

I've built a report based on a query that takes sales data from several stores, for different date ranges and calculates an average weekly sale. The report summarizes the average weekly sale on one line for each department. So, the query takes total sales devided by number of weeks. Then the report takes total weekly sales devided by number of stores to get an average weekly sale for the group - broken down by department (grocery, produce, meat, etc.).

Now, I just need a simple total of these numbers. The name of the text box with the numbers I want to add is "Weekly Sales". In the report footer, why can't I make a text box with the formula =sum([Weekly Sales])? If I try to do another calculation like adding up all the "Sales" and deviding by weeks and then deviding by stores - it just doesn't come out the same as adding up all the numbers that display in the report in the [Weekly Sales] text box.

I hope I'm making sense. I know it's simple.

By the way, my report has:

Report Header - Report title
Page Header - column headers
DeptNo Header - Nothing
Detail - Nothing
DeptNo Footer - Summary Avg Sales by dept. (Sales/Weeks/#Stores)
Page Footer - just page #'s, etc.
Report Footer - Where I'm trying to add all the amounts in DeptNo Footer

Oops! Never mind. There must have been a space or some other invisible character in the formula that was causing it to ignore the Cell field. I copied the formula to the Clipboard before trying some changes that didn't work [being careful to not copy beyond the last ')']. When I dropped it back and ran the query again, it worked . The formula looks identical to what was there when it didn't work, but some foreign element must have been there.

I have a field that consists of cases, and another field that consists of number of days (refer below). Does anyone know how I can count the total number of cases with number of days that are LESS THAN 90 days?

Case ..... Number of Days
Case 1 ...32
Case 2 ...45
Case 4 ...95
Case 5 ...26
Case 6 ...80
Case 7 ...55
Case 8 ...100

Total number of cases: 8
Total number of cases < 90 days: 5 (This is the answer I want)

Create a query, click the Totals button at the top, add both columns and add the number of days twice. Set the second one to count and put your <90 days in as a criteria.

Hi,I'm a newbie from MS Access and just starting to read some articles about it. But I know how to work on MS Excel. I'm dealing with a mdb file which I believe an MS Access file. Query 1: I just want to know how to edit its formula which is embedded on it. and Query 2: How to enter the data automatically which has a unique code I made on every item (for example you are going to enter the price of more than 2000 items). I'm pretty sure there is a way to enter it just like VLOOKUP in excel but I dont how in MS Access or visual vasic.Thanks(Moderator edit: post moved to more appropriate forum. jgw)

I have a form in an access database. This form tells us when our employees have taken their year tests and when the next one is due. This testing is yearly. I have a form that will show:
1) the name of the employee
2) when the test was last taken
3) when the next test should be taken
4) if their testing status is "expired" due to missing a test date

the problem is that 4th colum is not caculating exipired correctly. We have employees that have taken their test this year and colum 3 does state the correct next test for next year yet, they are showing as "expired" as if they had missed this years test. Here is the formula for the "status" colum:

=IIf([next test]<Now(),"EXPIRED!",Null)
Any advice or help would be appriciated....

Hi I am very new at this and out of my element.
I have a standard monthly report that generates list to update client data every 6 months. The formula needs to be changed to fit our new needs. I do not know how to access the standard formula to replace it.

the old formula looks from current day out 30 days for needed for 6 month updates. What I would like is one that will generate a list for just the reports in that month as all due dates are now the first of the following month (no matter what the day is all 6 month updates are due from the month not the day anymore ie all June are due in Dec 1).

For some reason I cannot get Excel 2000 to display the results of a formula. Only the formula text displays. I've gone to Tools-Options-View-Windows Options and checked and unchecked the Formulas checkbox. It doesn't make any difference.

This occurs in Vista on a new Viao laptop when trying to run a proggy written for windows. Apparently Vista lacks csrastl.ocx which I have copied from this XP home machine and registered it in Vista windows/system32. The install proggy was deliberately modified to take account for this but the situation has now changed and that peeps is no longer available to help.

Is there a quick and easy answer?

A:Solved: Error 75 in RS Home, Path/File access error

I had a query up on another forum where this has been answered.

The software had been written for earlier versions of windows so Vista did not have an appropriate file in its registry. Copying, pasting and registering this file in Windows system32 with the AUC switched off and a modified proggy downloaded and installed has done the trick. This problem and another has kept me busy all the weekend.
Cheers everybody.

Hi ~

I'm working on a financial formula, trying to calculate a growth rate for a row of cells. The problem is that not all rows have complete data sets, so the formula picks up blank cells and returns a #DIV/0! error.

The existing formula works fine for those rows that have non-zero entries in all cells, and I *can* manually adjust the formula for the starting / ending cells in each row--but what a pain(!). As this spreadsheet grows larger, or the data sets change over time, it means I have to constantly keep adjusting it for every row of data involved, which is extremely time-consuming.

Here's an short example of what I might have in any given row:

A1 (blank), B1(blank), C1(blank), D1(.10), E1(.25), F1(.72), G1(1.0), H1(.80), I1(.60), J1(.75)--then in K1 is the growth formula, e.g. =((J1/A1)^(1/10)-1).

Is there ANY way to create a formula that will dynamically adjust for the blank cells that might exist across a row of data and let the formula do the calculation?

I'm new to advanced Excel topics, but any ideas would be MOST appreciated(!).

Thanks -
