    I create a table via importing from a csv file. I have a field that does not
    populate in the table. Could it be because the number of characters ? Here's
    one that was in the csv file but did not populate on the access table:

    0510050000028556

    Thank you in advance.

    If you want to keep the leading zero's , you need a create text type field,
    and change the size of it
    If you don't need the leading zero's and you want the type of the field to
    be number, most likely it's long or integer now, change it to Double Or single

    I hope that helped
    Good Luck

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!
