Hello!

I'm having problems with using access or sql. Can anyone help me?

1., I want to put together two coloumns. In excel I'd do it with concatenate. In access? There are some built-in functions, but I dunno which one to use. (It is not a solution to do it in excel, while the base datas can change and I have to run this update query some times.

2., How to choose a row of numbers from a database if I don't know, how long the number is?
This case it is telephone numbers, which cal be 1 - 7-8 long. How to look it up?

Thank you in advance,

Gloria

Gloria, you can concatenate in SQL with the 'concat' command

eg 'Insert into table1.field3 concat(table1.field1+table1.field2)'

I think that would work for you, but the concat is the concatenate command for SQL.

As far as the query for the phone number how is it structured? Is each number in its own column and you need to select non-null values?

'select * from table1 where column<>'0''

Hello!

Thank you, I'll try.
The problem with the phone numbers is that I don't know, how long it is.
The best would be if I could enter 2-3-4-5, any numbers and it would recognize the location, I mean in the databases there are country and local numbers. For ex. 18007654321 and if I type 18007 it would recognize the 1800 which is in the list.

Dear JCooper!

Sorry, It was not working in access. [Linked Image]
I thought I had to make an update query, cause the base data table can change.

Any advise?
