Apply Filter To Control Button On A Form

Oct 11, 2004

I am trying to create a form with control buttons on the form for all the letters of the alphabet.
When a user clicks on the button for A, I would like them to only see records that starts with an "A".
I assume that I should apply an event to the button's OnClick-property, with a filter, but I can't seem to
get it right...any suggestions would be very much appreciated!

Apply Filter From Subform To Form By DATE

Sep 21, 2005

Hello everyone.
I am having trouble with applying filter on 2 date fields in form. I have succeeded by applying fiter on report by Date, but I just can't seem to work it out on Form!
I believe there has to be something to do with the DoCmd code.

I have a main form (frmRate) which has fields (txtDate & txtValidity) that contain dates.
I have a subform called (frmSearchRateCustomer) which has 4 fields (txtStartDate, txtEndDate, txtStartDate2, txtEndDate2) where the data range should be filled in as search criteria. I have also an additional combobox (cboCustomer) where user can select customer as a search criteria as well.
I have a button that has to do the Search in frmRate.
The combobox criteria works very well, just the date filtering is not working. I am pasting my code as follows:

Code:Private Sub cmdSearch_Click()On Error GoTo Err_cmdSearch_ClickDim strCustomer As StringDim strFilter As StringDim stDocName As StringDim strForm As StringDim strField As String 'Name of your Order field.Dim strWhere As String 'Where condition for OpenReport.Const conDateFormat = "#dd/mm/yyyy#"Dim strField2 As String 'Name of your Arrival field.Dim strWhere2 As String 'Where condition for OpenReport.Const conDateFormat2 = "#dd/mm/yyyy#" strForm = "frmRate" strField = "txtDate" strField2 = "txtValidity" ' For the Order Date Search Criteria Date range If IsNull(Me.txtStartDate) Then If Not IsNull(Me.txtEndDate) Then 'End date, but no start. strWhere = strField & " < " & Format(Me.txtEndDate, conDateFormat) End If Else If IsNull(Me.txtEndDate) Then 'Start date, but no End. strWhere = strField & " > " & Format(Me.txtStartDate, conDateFormat) Else 'Both start and end dates. strWhere = strField & " Between " & Format(Me.txtStartDate, conDateFormat) & " And " & Format(Me.txtEndDate, conDateFormat) End If End If ' Debug.Print strWhere 'For debugging purposes only. ' For the Arrival Date Search Criteria Date rangeIf IsNull(Me.txtStartDate2) Then If Not IsNull(Me.txtEndDate2) Then 'End date, but no start. strWhere2 = strField2 & " < " & Format(Me.txtEndDate2, conDateFormat2) End If Else If IsNull(Me.txtEndDate2) Then 'Start date, but no End. strWhere2 = strField2 & " > " & Format(Me.txtStartDate2, conDateFormat2) Else 'Both start and end dates. strWhere2 = strField2 & " Between " & Format(Me.txtStartDate2, conDateFormat2) & " And " & Format(Me.txtEndDate2, conDateFormat2) End If End If If IsNull(Me.cboCustomer.Value) Then strCustomer = "Like '*'" Else strCustomer = "='" & Me.cboCustomer.Value & "'" End If ' Build filter string strFilter = "[txtCustomerName] " & strCustomer DoCmd.OpenForm strForm, acNormal, , strWhere ' for date DoCmd.OpenForm strForm, acNormal, , strWhere2 ' for date stDocName = "frmRate" DoCmd.OpenForm stDocName, acNormal ' Apply filter to report With Forms![frmRate] .Filter = strFilter .FilterOn = True End WithExit_cmdSearch_Click: Exit SubErr_cmdSearch_Click: MsgBox Err.Description Resume Exit_cmdSearch_Click End Sub

I have used the same code as I have used for my Report, just changed few things like rpt --> frm etc...

Please Help me, because I am STUCK! Thank u~~

Forms :: Apply Filter On Navigation Form

Jul 23, 2014

I have a form with a bottom that has a macro that uses applyfilter to filter the current form based on what is within a textbox located on the form.

I used the macobuilder and have my where condition as

[num] Like "*" & [Forms]![frm_Main]![Text181] & "*" Or [name] Like "*" & [Forms]![frm_Main]![Text181] & "*"

This works when I open the form by itself but when I try adding the form to a navigation form I get prompted to put in "num" and "[Forms]![frm_Main]![Text181] " etc. when I click the bottom.

Cannot Apply Filter?

Mar 27, 2007

I have a query where on an IIF result a field is displayed or an "OK"

I have an imported field of 6 chrs where I only want the left 5 so I use
Loc:=Left([Location],5) ,

I then compare the result in, MoveTo: to another fixed field [PreferLoc]

MoveTo: IIf([Loc]=[PreferLoc],"OK",[PreferLoc])

I wish to citeria out all the "OK" values so I have <>"OK" in the critria section but when I try to run the query I am presented with a selection box asking for Loc
This Query feeds a report so I set the filter to yes in the report properties and use [MoveTo]<>"OK" as the filter and this works great until I close and reopen the app where the filter has gone ?
Can anyone advise where I am going wrong with my query and or my report ?

thanks in advance

ADP/ Apply/filter Error

Jun 13, 2006


I am working on an ADP ( first time working with this ). I have a form that is based on a parametized query.

The record source for the form is the parametized query which works fine the first time it is brought up. When the user wants to change the client number, a button "change client" is clicked and the event that gets triggered is openform=("edit client")...... Well, instead of being prompted, I get the error "The ApplyFilter action contiains a filter name that cannot be applied".... When I do a right -click on that same button, and "remove filter "I can get my prompt, but I dont want to keep doing that. I am not sure how to remove the filter from this button. I am not sure what the error message is telling me. Thanks for your help.

However, the ApplyFilter macro in one of the forms doesn't work in the runtime environment. The message suggested I use a SelectObject before ApplyFilter but that gave me another error.

I have placed a filter button on a form as a filter and written the following on-click event procedure:

DoCmd.SetWarnings False

When I click the filter button I get a blank message box titled 'Microsoft Access" and an OK button, when closed the filter works perfectly.I have checked this procedure in other forms and it works without showing the blank message box.The only difference with this form is that its control source is a union query.

Forms :: Macro To Apply Filter - Search Multiple Fields

May 9, 2013

I'm trying to implement a macro to filter through accidents to see if my company has already been hired on a particular case.

In the first form the user enters the date, location, and last name of one of the drivers. Then they click a button which opens a new form as a datasheet with accidents that match ANY of the three controls. Evidently, I need a filter that contains some form of a series of OR operators.

However, whenever I try any variation of a button that opens the second form and then applies the filter, I always get no matches.

Forms :: Filter List Box On Form By Using A Control On Form

Jan 14, 2015

On a form I have a:

control called "FilterListBox"
list box called "lstCustomer"
option Box called "optCustomerType"

When the user selects an option in the option box, "FilterListBox" is updated to either "1", "2" or "1 or 2"..One of the fields in the query for "lstCustomer" is "CustomerType" and its criteria is set as follows:


if "FilterListBox" = 1 the query for "lstCustomer" returns the correct records
if "FilterListBox" = 2 the query for "lstCustomer" returns the correct records

But if "FilterListBox" = 1 or 2, no records are returned.

Filter Command Button On A Form

Dec 12, 2005

I have a basic question.

I am trying to put a button on a form I have created so that I can use Filter by Form feature on it. I used the toolbox commnad button wizard and chose the Form Operations -> Apply Form Filter option for the button.

Unfortunately, this button does not work for this choice. In the Form view, if I click on this button nothing happens. Other choices in the wizard such as Edit Form Filter etc works.

Does anyone know what could be the problem? Is this an Access bug (i am using Access 2003).

If it is a bug, can anyone suggest what little modifications one might have to do to the VBA code underlying OnClick event for the button to make this command button work?

thanks a lot for the help

Possible To Filter By Form Using A Command Button?

Mar 6, 2006

Hi, I'm an Access newbie. I've designed a fairly simple database to replace an old spreadsheet that was becoming unwieldy -- it was never really used so much for calculation as for data storage, so Access seems more appropriate anyway.

One of the functions I used in Excel was the autofilter, which I found very useful for zeroing in on specific portions of the data. I was wondering how I would do the same thing in Access, and then I discovered the "Filter by Form", which works just fine -- even better actually, since it has the whole and/or functionality.

I was wondering though if it would be possible to invoke "Filter by Form" using a command button. That would make it even easier, especially for some of my users who would almost certainly not know about "Filter by Form" otherwise.

Filter Button On Split Form?

Feb 11, 2015

I have this code set to a button on a split form. It filters out all the blank records for the "Status" column.

Private Sub cmdFilterPendingStatus_Click()
Me.Filter = "[Status]"
Me.FilterOn = True
End Sub

I would like to do the exact opposite and filter out everything except for the blank records in the "Status" column.

How can I change the code to do this? I guess I should also mention that the "Status" field is a long text/memo box but I can easily change this to short text if I really have to. I realize that short text can do the blank filtering within the split form itself by clicking on that tiny arrow in the column header but I am trying to make it really user friendly where the user can just click a button to do this. The long text box has some options to filter but not for blank fields in a record which makes me think that this may not be possible to do if the Status field remains a long text box. Some examples for the filtering options that are available in the split form for a long text box are: Begins with, contains, ends with, etc... however, when I type "" to try and filter out everything except the records that have null in the Status field, it says that "" is not valid.

What can I do to get the results I need?
