Blank Record Created When Closing Form

Nov 4, 2005

I have a statistical program and the user constantly use the form to check calculations and get out without saving a record. In order to allow this with out writing to the table I used unbound fields and an accept and close command buttons.

This worked well until I added a subform to one of the forms. Now, if I just open that form and then click the close button, I get a blank record in the table associated to the main form. Is there a way to stop this?

Forms :: Records Don't Show When Created From Blank Form?

Aug 29, 2013

Very suddenly today, when I'd done seemingly nothing, all of the records from my form that I'd built from a blank form disappeared, with the exception of the first record. When I try to just close everything down, nothing changes. When I put in a new record to the form, however, it's saved in the table. But when I save and close, the form goes back to only having the first record! This is very annoying, for easily perceivable reasons. I even tried creating the form from scratch, to see if it's some residual SQL update code acting funny, and nothing changed! It seems to work if I select a table and just create a form, though. It doesn't even work when it's a splitform and whatnot.

Forms :: Capture When Record Has Created And Data On A Form Changed

Mar 28, 2013

I need to know when:

* a new record has been created
* data on a record has been changed

Does the On Dirty event capture this, or can I just use the forms On Change event?

Detect If New Record If Closing Form

Jan 31, 2008


I have a form with 55 values entered. On closing the form, I need it to decide if this is a new record. If it is a new record, it loads all 55 values into an array. If all values are above 20,000, it goes ahead and closes the form. If any are below 20,000, it writes the record to another table and brings up that form to add add a comment.

Every thing does as it should except determining if it is a new record. What property will trigger it properly? All the properties I have tried either triggers it on all the records (even if it is an old record) or it does not trigger it and closes without prompting the code.

Forms :: Go To New Record On Subform After Closing Pop Up Form

Jul 9, 2013

I have a form (frmAuditEntry) that includes a subform (sfrmAuditDetail). The user will enter audit information on the subform. There is a check box on the subform to identify containers that had errors in selection. When the box is check by the user, a pop up form opens where the user can enter the details regarding the type of error. The audit number and the container ID are carried over from the main form to the pop up form to link the information.

This is the code I have in the AfterUpdate event of the checkbox:

Private Sub Errors_AfterUpdate()
Dim rs As Object
Dim strBookmark As String
strBookmark = Me.ContainerID

[Code] ....

This works great and keeps the focus on the record the user checked having errors so the right information transfers tot he pop up form fields. When the pop up form is closed, the focus goes back to the subform but keeps the focus on the container ID control of the record that the user previously checked as having errors (hope that makes sense).

What I would like to happen is this: When the pop up form is closed, I want the focus to go back to the subform but to go to the last blank record on the subform (if the user moved off the record before checking the error checkbox) or go to a new record (if the user did not move to a new record already before checking the error checkbox).

Forms :: When Duplicating A Record Duplicate Is Created But Form Remains In Edit Mode

Feb 25, 2014

I have a form with a duplicate record button.Sometimes when duplicating a record the duplicate is created but the form remains in edit mode (small pencil in the form margin).I also have a manual record counter on the form which does not refresh to the newest record number following the duplication? Both issues happen together and not independently.

I now have the standard MS Access record counter visible on the form to see whats happening and this always jumps correctly to a new record number when duplication is triggered, so when the problem happens the MS Access counter is showing one more than my own record counter.

If I use the standard MS Access record navigation buttons and go back and then forward by one record, the duplicated record is then corrected. The edit mode pencil is gone and both record counters read the same, which I assume has happened this has forced a save to happen

If Me.Dirty
Then Me.Dirty = False
End If

- in the current event of the form, would solve the problem, but it doesnt make any difference at all, its still no better, or no worse than before?Using CTRL + S removes the pencil, but doesn't correct my bespoke record counter?

Forms :: Saving A Record And Closing A Popup Form

Jun 15, 2014

I have a popup called by a subform to add a new record or edit a selected record. I keep getting "Runtime error 32502". The value you entered isn't valid for the field "|"

I have no required fields and all the drop down related fields have the right value type in them (That I can find)The only "|" reference I can find is in the OpenArgs content below when I load the form. If I'm adding a new record I pass two fileds via the OpenArgs

Private Sub Command52_Click()
DoCmd.OpenForm "AddDebtorPaymentFrm", , , , acFormAdd, OpenArgs:=Me![DebtorId] & "|" & Me![MatterId]
End Sub

or if I'm modifying a record from the subform on click I

Private Sub Text38_Click()
DoCmd.OpenForm "AddDebtorPaymentFrm", acNormal, , "[Transactions].[TransId] = " & Me.TransId, acFormEdit
End Sub

Below is the Popup Load code

Private Sub Form_Load()
If Me.DataEntry = True Then
Me.VariableHeading = "Add A Debtor Payment"

Modules & VBA :: Adding Record To A Table - Closing A Form Without Saving

Nov 26, 2013

I have a form to add a record to a table. How can I give the user a way to close this form without saving the just created record.

I tried

If me.dirty then
DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdDeleteRecord

This works, but gives a messagebox in return to confirm the command, and I don't want that. And I try to avoid sendkeys. I also don't want to change the options of access.

Forms :: Search Form When Closing Gives Warning - Cannot Save Record At This Time

Aug 5, 2015

I have a "Search" form that I am using to search through a query in a list box of all of my Customers. Once the record that I am wanting to view comes up I highlight it and click a "View" button to bring up another form with the customers full record. When this form is open I am able to update the customer information and add User's to it if necessary.

My problem comes after I click on my save and close button that takes me back to me search form. I want to close the search form and the error I get is "The record cannot be deleted or changed because table "tblUserProfile" includes related records." I click OK and get a SECOND error stating "You can't save this record at this time. MS Access may have encountered an error while trying to save a record. If you close this object now, the data changes you made will be lost. Do you want to close the database object anyway?"

I have already made my changes and saved them in the form with the customer record so am not sure why I am getting an error when trying to close the Search form.

Need Blank Record On Form

Aug 1, 2006

I have a form with a drop down of employee names and a tabbed subform.

I have the form and subform set up to open on a new record and, when the employee name is selected to fill the subform with that employee's data.

It is a split db with the be on the network server and everyone has their own copy of the fe. When I open the front end the combo box is blank but the first page on the tabbed subform shows data. If I close it and reopen it, sometimes its blank and other times it still shows data.

What else do I need to do to ensure that it is a blank record?

Also, I am using the MouseHook.dll and included it in my .exe (zip) file to all of my users, instructing it to download to the same location as the .mdb file (C:/Training Database). Will this work or does the MouseHook.dll need to be somewhere else?

Blank Record In A Form

May 5, 2005

i have a subform as a continuous form, and at the bottom, there is the normal blank record (created automatically), to enter a new record. Is it possible to attach a piece of code to a field but which will be available only to the field of this blank record, rather than being available for the particular field of all the records in this continuous form ?

Basically i want that if the focus is on this blank record, and i will hit the tab key i want to move the focus to a control, on the main form, that's why i want it specifically, when only this blank record at the end has the focus.

Thank you for any suggestions.

Tables :: Add A New Child Record When Master Record Is Created?

Dec 21, 2012

I have a master table with about 40 fields. In addition, I created eight child tables with read only datasheet views of limited fields from the master table. The child table views are based on certain critera in the master table and are being refreshed by using delete and append queries tied to the On Current property of a form. By double-clicking a specific child record, a form is opened to allow editing of the master record. Also, I am using Referential Integrity and Cascade Update Related Fields to update the child table when a change is made to the master. However, I do not know how to add a record to one or more child tables when a record is added to the master table. The new child record would have to be based on the same critera that the append queries use so it gets added to the correct child table or tables.

Open Form To A Blank Record

Feb 3, 2005

I have a form that is used to both Enter & Edit records. There is a "search" button to aid in finding records.
I have been asked to have the form open to a blank record instead of the first record in the table.
Is there a way to do this without setting the "DataEntry" property to true, as this basiclly disables the "search" button.

Default Blank Record When Opening Form

Sep 25, 2006


I have a form which is based on a table.

I was wondering if it is possible that when the form is opened a blank record could be displayed rather than the first entry in the table. In other words, it would be like opening a form and clicking the "Add Record" button, a blank record would be displayed and data entry could take place.

Any thoughts/ideas would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Retrieve Blank Form Upon Record Entry

Jul 12, 2013

I have code that is executed with the click of a button to enter a new response using 2 fields to differentiate the records: a combobox "cboSrvID" and a textbox "RspnsName". I have a different set of questions for each value in the cboSrvID. Upon selecting my button the record is saved correctly although I would like it to open the blank form associated on the subform "sfrmSurveyResponses" when pushed. I have tried some DoCmd.FindRecord and DoCmd. GoTo functions to try and retrieve the last acLast RspnsID inputted. So far I have had no luck.

Below is the code for the onClick action of my button.

Private Sub cmdEnterResults_Click()
DoCmd.DoMenuItem acFormBar, acRecordsMenu, acSaveRecord, , acMenuVer70
DoCmd.SetWarnings False
DoCmd.OpenQuery "qappNewResponses"
End Sub

Modules & VBA :: Module Opening Form With Blank Record?

Sep 10, 2014

I have the following module in my database to allow for multiple alarms.

It all works great, except before showing the actual alarm record called, the form first pops up showing the first record in its record source.

I.e. it flashes up showing the first record in the table, then changes to the 'correct' record.

I would just like to change it so it either doesn't show until the record is loaded, or it shows blank to begin with.

Here's the module...

Option Compare Database
Option Explicit
Public clnPopUpAlarm As New Collection 'Instances of frmPopUpAlarm

Forms :: Displaying Blank Form Instead Of Current Record

Jun 5, 2014

I have created a navigation form with quick access to the forms and reports I use most often. The Navigation Form (which I named Control Panel) automatically lands on the Tutor_Information Form on a current record. However, I would like for it to open to a blank form instead while retaining the ability to access the current records. Individually, when opening the Tutor_Information Form from the Navigation Panel, it opens to a blank record.

I used a 2 step macro

1. OpenForm
2. GoToRecord - New.

How can I make it do the same thing when landing on the Navigation Form (Control Panel)? I am using Access 2013.

Forms :: When Clicked Form Opens To Blank Record And Won't Show Previous Records

May 6, 2015

I've recently decided to move a database that had all its information on 1 table and divided it into multiple tables.

Attached is the relationship as well as the form.

The issue I have is that when I click the form, it only shows a blank record with none of previous records.

Data entry is already set to NO. I'm wondering if it's an issue with my relationships, tblStudioDescription is the parent table and the others are child tables so I linked them with the ID and set referential integrity.
