Data truncates when exporting to .txt file

    Hello:

    I am trying to export a crosstab query into a text file. The query
    contains numerical data that is used for scientific analysis, whic
    means that the entire value must be exported down to the last decimal
    place.

    As I go through the Export Wizard, all of the numbers appear to be
    fine, but when I save the information to a .txt file, any number that
    begins with 0.01 is truncated to the first three digits. Also, in some
    places, the number is actually converted into scientific notation.

    Can anyone help me with this? If so, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    Darryl:

    You did not say which version of Access you are using so I don't know if the
    following KB article addresses your issue, however, I thought I would pass
    it along. By the way, Access 2003 has the same Save Formatted checkbox
    option available when exporting to text files.

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!
