Good morning. How do you do. I hope you are ok with your family. I like your tutorial video for Microsoft Access. I highly requested you make tutorial video for stock control. Example stock table, Customer table and Suppliers table from this three table how control minimum stock level when issue material for Customer automatic reduce from stock and when receive material from Suppliers automatic add stock. Please make tutorial video for this.

Your tutorial was extremely helpful and I have reviewed several instructional videos prior to yours. I do have a question that I can't seem to find an answer for.....I have a spreadsheet that I'm importing into access that requires two additional columns added. The columns will be used to add a formula. Question: how do you add the column so that it does not disappear when running saved imports? I need these columns to appear in the final report that will be exported. Every time I run the saved imports it overrides the table. Any help is appreciated. Thank you

Have you considered using Append instead of Replace when importing the table?

Thank you Mr. Kaceli for your thorough yet simple to follow tutorial. You are an awesome teacher. Thank you for sharing. Never used Access and find myself having to get a quick handle on it as I go back out in to the work place. You have given me the confidence I needed, by making what I thought was going to be a mind boggling experience into a easy to understand one. Thank you so very much. Shalom

can somebody help me set this up. I have 200 students who have a book allowance of $500 each year to use over the next 4 years. Each year they don't use the full $500 - the balance carries over into the next year, until the end of the 4 years. As they use funds, i have to deduct it. I currently use Excel but would like to use Access for more detailed tracking, comments, etc.,. .

my parents and my uncle were millionaires in the 70' and 80'. Did they need Access to get there...NO... they used basic accounting principles + to do business... I can see how MS AC can be useful...yet, unless u have the brains for business and to get a head, it's no good. MS keeps u worried about learning it rather than really getting ahead. abstraction. Learn accounting, finance, and statistics from the basics up. then all this will have much more relevance. U cant learn how to do business from learning how to make an EX table.

Hi, thank you a lot for the videos. They are truly great. I'm a student and it's really helping. I have found a problem - most probably - on my end. Everything so far was going super until I arrived at the import of the "invoicelist". For some reason, it has a problem with how the date is written. The date in the file is written "Month-day-year" and for my access seems to function "day-month-year" and so some data is lost when I import the document. I don't know if there is a way to fix it but just wanted to give a heads up. Oh... I'm working with Access 2007. Don't know if that the cause of the problem.

Most likely this has to do with the date format in control panel.

If the field is the primary key, then yes the id needs to be unique.

MS ACCESS 2019 Error Message : The table is already in use exclusively by another user or it is already open thru the user interface & can't be manipulated programmatically. That doesn't make sense. I am a single user and not attached to a network and get this message often.
Sali Kaceli
Sali Kaceli 11 months ago
Most likely the table itself is opens while you're using access. I suggest that you close all windows within Access and then try again.
