    this version was configured for a 32-bit version of access

    Sorry, but where do I look for the bitness of my Access 365 version? I've hunted high and low - I just assumed it was 64 bit but a client got the following message after opening my new app: "this version was configured for a 32-bit version of access". Any clues would be appreciated...

    SQL responds quickly for first data request, then sluggish for any others

    Calculated Fields in SQL

    Hi all, There was a time when this query would give an error, because you couldn't use a calculated field in a second calculation in the same query: SELECT Len([EntrantName])*[EntrantID] AS EntrantCode, tblEntrants.EntrantName, IIf([EntrantCode]>50,[EntrantCode],[EntrantName]) AS...

    Cannot work out how to extend the layout to a new section

    Hi, I am creating reports automagically by selecting an existing query and clicking Create Report. Very cool and the layouts are easy to modify. In fact, the same Layout extends from the Header section across the detail section, which makes it easy to resize columns without manually re-aligning...
