You can highlight values in fields or records in Microsoft Access reports using conditional formatting. Certain conditions must be met in order for the formatting to be applied …
You can create calculated fields in select queries in Microsoft Access in the QBE (Query by Example) grid. You’ll need to learn a few syntax rules and then you can create simple to more complex calculations.
You may also like
You can quickly fill blank cells in a range of data in Excel with dashes, zeros or other number or text values. Blank cells can be problematic if you want to use a data set as the source for a pivot table.
You can convert cm to inches (or inches to cm) using formulas with operators or functions in Excel. This is useful since the regional settings on a computer affect the default measurement system used in Excel and other programs.
You can hide comments and notes in Excel workbooks. In addition to adding comments in Excel, there is a little known function called the N function that you can use to enter notes directly within a formula. The N function has been around for a long time so you can use it in older versions of Excel.
