I have a field with 14 digit numbers. I am trying to do a Make Table query, and keep the same field format in ACCESS 97

Field Size: Double
Format: Fixed
Decimal Places: 0

Even though this is the original field, format, when I do the make table, it defaults to

Field Size: Double
Format:
Decimal Places: Auto

How can I get it to keep the same basic format?

Thanks

Once the table is created, edit the field to what it should be. Then change your make table query to Append and see what happens.

I don't think you need to keep running the make table query do you?

no, I'm just lazy.. I knew about that solution, but I was hoping there was an easier way to code my make table queries so that the format would stay the same.
