Inserting expression into a query

Hi

I am using a form field as criteria in a query like this
[Forms]![MyForm]![MyField]. This works fine if the field has a single value
like "value1" but if the field has an expression as a value like "value1 or
value2" then the query returns nothing. Is there a way to insert the literal
value of the field "value1 or value2" into the query? I want to do it in a
way that I can change this expression at runtime.

Thanks

Regards

I am trying to run the following agregate function in a parameterized query on Access2000: Min(.*sqr(./.)/) The query saved OK, but an attempt to run it results in the message: The expression is typed incorrectly or it is too complex to be evaluated If the sintax correct? Perhaps it is, otherwise it would not save. What can be done about it?

I am having trouble inserting two queries...I am trying to insert an new item(pk) into a table in one query, and then inserting an item(fk) in another table that relates to the other item just created in the first. The problem is that in order for the second query to work, the first has to exist in the first table before it will work. Is there a way of running the first query first and then the next. Here is what I have: <cfquery...

I like using the expression builder for a lot of different things but it isn't always available when I want to use it, for example in the code window, or in all of the control properties. I am usually stuck having to go into the database window, creating a new query, etc., and then right-clicking in a field and selecting build. Is there a shortcut key, a way to add a button to an Access toolbar, or something like that so I can use to...

In Linq, you can apparently get a meaningful body from and expression's .ToString(); random question - does anybody know if linq also includes a parser? It just seemed it might be a handy way to write a safe but easy implementation (i.e. no codedom) for an IBindingListView.Filter (by compiling to a Predicate<T>). Anybody know if this is possible at all? Marc

I am building a query in Access 2003. Here is my problem.

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>". The problem is that using the GNU compilers, it seems that the internal comparison operator "<=>" tries to promote arguments from unsigned to signed. This is as boiled down as I can make it. Here is my compilation command: g++-12 -std=c++20 -Wnarrowing bit_field.cpp Here is the code in...
