Blank Form In Form View But Fields Present In Design View

Oct 19, 2005

After reading many of the posts here, I decided that one of the problems with the tables in the db I was working on was in the primary keys. I had used the same field name as the primary key in all of my tables. This was RecipID, which was a user entered textbox with an example in a label beside it showing the format to use.

After reading stuff here, I decided this wasn't a good idea. So I changed RecipId to be an autonumber in the parent table (Household_Info) and a long integer foreign key in the children. Also, I added some fields to the parent table to identify the head of household (lastname, firstname)

I already had a continuous form made with a subform and a pop-up form associated with it based on my previous tables. Reran the query underlying the form, and the new fields showed up in the field list box for the form. The fields are all still present in design view, but I get a totally blank form in form view. I checked the forms recordsource and made sure that it was set to the new query.

Can anyone give me an idea about what I'm overlooking? Do I have to recreate the form?

(Sorry if this is a repeat of a question someone has already addressed, but I couldn't turn up any relevant threads after several hours of searching.)

Thanks, Charlotte

Forms :: Added Extra Tab - Form Showing Blank In Design And Layout View

Mar 30, 2013

My form was working fine but when I added an extra tab it started showing as completely blank in design view. When I deleted the tab I had added I still was left with the same problem!

I've attached an image of the form properties. I want to use the form to enter data so it needs to show even if there are no records.

I had read that it could be if there is no data but typing data in the tables hasn't worked either.

Forms :: Text Boxes Showing In Design View But Not Display In Form View

Apr 19, 2014

I have a Form which I have linked correctly to a subform. The Text boxes are showing in the Design view but are not when one switches to the Form View. Labels for Fields are visible in the Form View. Have even created a new subform and that will also not display the Text Boxes.

Forms :: Unable To View Object Properties In Form Design View (Access 2010)

May 16, 2014

Why the ability to view the properties of an object within a form is not available when you double click on it in design view?

I was happily working away double clicking on a command button to edit some code when for some reason the next time I tried to edit it did not open up for me.

I was unable to access it even by right clicking on the object & selecting properties as that also appears to be disabled, not greyed out or anything but just does nothing when selected.

Have I inadvertently changed a setting somewhere that prevents the properties from being displayed?

Design View Keyboard Shortcut - Expand Columns In Design View Of A Query

Jun 5, 2014

I'm looking for a keyboard shortcut to expand the columns in "design view" of a query.

What I mean by this is rather than selecting all of the columns and double clicking to see the entire text, I'd like to be able to a shortcut.

The entire process as I see it involves 3 steps so I will need thesolution to the 3rd step.

(1) [ctrl+spacebar] to select initial column
(2) [shift+arrows] to select all of the columns I need
(3) [keyboard shortcut] will expand all of the columns "field" names to the size of the column heading

Alternatively, if you know of a shortcut that will expand the columns without having to select them first I'll take it!!

Forms :: Access Form Must Be Opened In Design View Before Use

Oct 1, 2013

I have a access form that has a text box that holds a search term. The search term is used as a variable in a query. The query results populate a list box. Selecting a result in the list box populates the rest of the form where the record can be edited. All of that works great...sort of. When first opening the form you cannot view any records. The search function works fine and the list box populates but selecting a record does not populate the rest of the form. Attempt to navigate (next, first, etc.) and you get a "You can't go to the specified record" dialog. There is a simple fix for this. Open the form as normal. Then switch to design mode. Do absolutely nothing. Switch back to form mode. All is well.

Forms :: Design View - Reducing Form Size?

Sep 24, 2014

When I create a form in design view and then open it, the form fills the whole area. The Fit To Screen property is set to No, and Auto Resize makes no difference no matter what it is set at.

How can I reduce the form size (so it looks like an Excel form)?

Field In Design View Not Showing In Table View

Jul 2, 2007

I have a table called NewTransactions_tbl that I have been using for some time. I am trying to add a new field called CustomerProjectNumber. It's not being displayed when I look at the table view. I've attached an image showing the settings for the field. I am probably missing something obvious.

Any ideas why it is not showing?

I am using Access 2000.

Forms :: No Filters - Cannot View All Records In Form View

Aug 27, 2013

I have 4 tables and around 440 records but can only view up to 417 in the form I have designed. I have been adding new records via form and it has been added to my main table, but when i try to view it in form view - the record is not available to view. What do I need to do to correct this problem?

I have checked that there are no filters, data entry is set to No, Auto deletions, additions and edits are set to yes.

Also to mention it seems that the problem has arisen since I set up some new queries, there is a one to one relationship between the tables!

Design View - Where'd The Table View Go ?

Apr 18, 2008

You know how normally in design view there would be a table at the bottom of the screen where you can drag your fields from the view above.

Well, I have a query where this table view has disappeared ?

I can edit the query in SQL view, the query works, just the table view is missing.

Ever happened to anyone else ? I've done the obvious and scrolled down as far as I can and nope, it's not there ??? :confused:

Normal View -v- Design View

Jul 20, 2005

I am wondering why the alteration to my form in design view is not reflected in the "normal" form view. I have included the two views. In design view I moved "Staff In"/"Staff ID" to the top of the form believing that as I work left to right thay would appear on the left hand side in normal view.

However, in the image of "normal" view you can see that "Staff In" is way over on the right hand side of the form.

Any ideas how I can fix this?

Thank you

Modified Form View For UNC And Now Data Is Blank

Sep 26, 2005

I'm a novice Access user and I've been put in charge of changing this. The database is on a shared device. I copied a working frontend (access file) to another machine and used the link table manager tool to find the new database. Now when I open the table view mode I can see the table data, but when I open the form, it doesn't show the data at all and it only lists 1 record. I know this sounds like a really stupid question, but is there one more step or am I in insert mode?

Thanks a bunch for your help.

Forms :: Switching From Design View Causes Access To Freeze?

Dec 30, 2014

Access 2013 on Windows 7 ..I have a Main Switchboard form which is Pop-up and Modal. Everything on it is working as required, but if I am in Design View and try to switch directly to Form view, the form disappears and the Access screen freezes - the mouse moves, but no menus or objects can be selected. If I have the VBA window open, I can carry on working in it, saving the modules and closing that window as usual. But the only way to open a form or do anything else in the main screen is to kill Access by closing the Access window in the system tray (or using the Task Manager).

If I close the Switchboard when in Design view and then open it in Form view, everything's fine.

The only recent change I can think of is upgrading from a 32-bit implementation of Access to 64-bit.

Forms :: Design Changes Not Reflected In Subform Datasheet View

Aug 15, 2013

I have a subform whose design I am trying to change. When I make changes such as moving fields or adding fields the changes appear in form view (and layout view), but not in datasheet view. However, if I delete fields, the changes appear in both form and datasheet view.

This situation results in behavior where I can have the subform open in design view and toggle back and forth between design and datasheet view, and they are different. However, toggling between design and form view shows the changes as having taken effect.

Closing Form / Table While In Design View

Oct 13, 2014

I have several Access DB's that I work with and all of them have a close option(x in the upper right corner) on forms/tables/queries except for one. This is one that I did not create. So, when I open a form in design view to modify it, the only way to close it is to close down the DB?

General :: How To Allow User Add Fields To Form (without Going Into Design View)

Dec 4, 2012

I got a form called "Make quote". In this form a user can select a product from a line of fields. This "line" contains: article code, product, price and quantity the customer requests.

Each single quote can contain a very different amount of products. Some quotes just have 1 product, other quotes have 25 products.

I'm looking for a way to let the user add as many "lines" as necessary for the quote. BUT I don't want him to need to go into design view.

I'm thinking of maybe adding a button to the form which does this, but I'm not sure how.
