I have a field that birthdays are entered in and for some reason it won't let me put in date of birth older than 1930. Is their a way to edit the field to fix it. Thank you.

Can a formula spear through sheets?
Use =SUM(January:December!E7) to sum E7 on all of the sheets from January through December

You need to use 4 digit years as the Access help file shows that

1/1/00 through 12/31/29 is converted to 1/1/2000 through 12/31/2029
1/1/30 through 12/31/99 is converted to 1/1/1930 through 12/31/1999

Use four-digit years To ensure that Access interprets year values the way that you intended, you can type year values as four digits (for example, 2001, rather than 01).
