hi,
i have a DB which has been requested to have additional fields added. is it possible to do a multiple update to all queries etc to add this new field to save time and ensure that all queries are updated.

Format cells as date
Select range and press Ctrl+Shift+3 to format cells as date. (Shift 3 is the # sign which sort of looks like a small calendar).

It would be possible but would require code.

You would need to loop through every query definition and rewrite the SQL behind them.

You would need to specify the fields to add and how to add them.

Can you give some more information?

i need to add a yes/No field to a table, then every query that is linked to the table needs to be updated accordingly to ensure data integrity.
