    Report in Access 2002 (MS Access 2002)

    I have a machine that prints tickets from a registration program within Access 2002. It then creates a file that creates field Ticket1count, ticket2count, etc. The program creates these fields as TEXT fields. When I run a query and do a grouping and try to get a SUM of the fields (ticket1count, ticket2count, etc) I receive a TYPE mismatch error as you would expect. So I have to go in and change the Data Type to Number and the query runs as expected. Is there a way to do this query/report without having to manually change the Data Type? Thanks shihalud

    You could use Val(Ticket1Count) etc. and sum that.
