I'm designing a Database for my section in work. I
have Normalised it already. The Database is to hold information about
the recruitment of hospital workers. This is not a recruitment system.
We already have one in the office. It's merely to keep track of our
own section's work.
We recruit for hospitals all over the country

length, but with exceptions?
Let me explain...
I have a text
field in my table called "employee_number" and this value is
always one of the following:NULLan 8-digit numberthe word
"External"What I want to do is to force that field to either
be NULL, the word "External", or a unique 8-digit number. />Is this possible? Obviously I can't set the source field in SQL to
accept unique values only but I wondered if there was any way around
it at form level?
Hi all,
I've tried to add some basic login (not really
security) to my database so that when a different name is entered into
the login box a different form is opened.
I got this working but
the login form stays in foreground and I can't click anything behind
it and can't get to the design view to change any properties of
I've also changed this login form to the startup item
so it always loads when i start the database.
Is there way to get
back to the design view or do i have to start again from my

I am trying to use SQL to run queries in
our access database in order to (hopefully) speed things up. I'm
trying to create code that basically takes data from one table and
inserts it into another whilst doing calculations on the data.

However I can't get past this:

I am trying to automatically import student data from
excel into an access relational database structure to use the data to
report progress in an ongoing manner.
I have managed to import an
excel sheet with the raw data and I analysed it through the wizard and
have produced a clean relational database with the data.
I was
wondering, now that I have the access database structure defined, is

with same headers) to the newly created relational database? I was
hoping to append to the existing data with only new data from the
excel sheet.
