    I am working on a database from a different group in my company than
    where I am assigned. This database consists basically of one
    continuous form (multiple records on a form) and this database was
    converted earlier this year from 97 to 2000. Since the conversion to
    2000 a certain feature of convenience no longer works. This is where a
    specific date (usually today's date but not always) is entered in the
    date field of the first and last record and then the remaining records
    automatically fill in the same date in their date fields, which can
    save a lot of entering. Can someone explain to me how this is normally
    set up to do that and possible reasons why this converted database no
    longer functions this way? Thanks as usual.

    I forgot to note that the auto fill in happens between "added" records
    only and will not affect the entire form.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
