Running Multi-Iteration Loops

    Hi,

    I am trying to write a loop that runs about 70,000 times. I know this is
    big, and I expect it to take a while. But for some reason, my Access has
    trouble running loops bigger than 9 iterations, I get a message that says
    "subscript out of range" and the loop truncates at 9. Right now I am using a
    do...while loop. Any ideas as to why I am prohibited from running large
    loops, or how I can fix this? Thank you.

    I suppose we'd have to see your code that is doing the loop. My hunch is that
    you are doing something incorrect.

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!
