Below is a pic of the form I'm having trouble with. the poject is a database of golf courses. there is a form for entering/viewing information for each hole for each course. basically each record has a thumbnail pic of the hole.
That browse button needs to do something. It needs to open a browse dialog box, similar to the browse dialog box you get on many other programs. The idea is that the user selects the picture from the browse dialog box and the file name of this picture is put in the PhotoFile field.
I have no idea where to start on this, but I did check out the Northwind database that comes with Access - its similar but has loads of other functions bundled with it that I don't need and doesn't work without these functions.
I'm no programming genius either! so any help is greatly appreciated.
I am designing a form and I need to add a Browse button to it. I need the Browse Button to point to the "My Computer". Once that file is selected I need it to fill in the hyperlink box. I have the hyperlink text box on the form and it works if you manually type a link in. I would like it to auto fill-in with the selected file.
Hello all: I'm trying to create a browse button in MS Access. Here is the code I've used so far:
Private Sub ImgBrowse_Click()
Dim OFN As OPENFILENAME On Error GoTo Err_cmdInsertPic_Click
' Set options for dialog box. With OFN .lpstrTitle = "Images" If Not IsNull([ImageFullPath]) Then .lpstrFile = [ImageFullPath] .flags = &H1804 ' OFN_FileMustExist + OFN_PathMustExist + OFN_HideReadOnly .lpstrFilter = MakeFilterString("Image files (*.bmp;*.gif;*.jpg;*.wmf)", "*.bmp;*.gif;*.jpg;*.wmf", _ "All files (*.*)", "*.*") End With
If OpenDialog(OFN) Then [ImageFullPath] = OFN.lpstrFile [ImagePicture].Picture = [ImageFullPath] SysCmd acSysCmdSetStatus, "Afbeelding: '" & [ImageFullPath] & "'." End If Form.Refresh Exit Sub Err_cmdInsertPic_Click: MsgBox Err.Description, vbExclamation End Sub
and here is what is in my module:
Option Compare Database
Public Type OPENFILENAME lpstrTitle As String lpstrFile As String flags As Long lpstrFilter As String
When I attempt to compile it says Sub or function not defined and highlights MakeFilterString. Why is this and how can I fix it? An ideas? Thank you
Could someone give me a few pointers on how to create a 'Browse' button on a form with the intent to search for an image in an bound-image to record and assign it and store the bmp selected by the user from the user's machine?
i would like to create an browse button on my form so i can find the pictures i would like and then to been shown on the picture field on my form. i tried the northwood code from help but i could manage nothing woth it. do you have any idea to help ,me please??
My job has recently decided that I need to build a database of test pictures, I've read many forums on the link pictures / putting browse button as I gather it makes the database too large with attachments.
My problem is I think I grasp the concept but I cant seem to use the code / Im not sure where im actually putting the code.
I have a field on a form which the user currently has to manually type in the file path to a specific picture on a local drive. After the file path is entered, the path is linked and the picture is shown in an image box. I did this because I didnt want to bog the database down with attached files.
I wondered if I could have a browse button, which when pressed brought up the browse window to allow you to locate the image (using the standard windows browser). Then when you clicked ok, it writes the filename into the correct field on the form.
I need to return a folders directory to a text box on my forms record called Files_Directory when i click the Browse command button... The folder will have more folders within it along with documents all relivant to the folder selected, hense the need for just the folder directory rather than a file.
I'm currently importing a sheet from Excel into Access 2003 using Docmd.TransferSpreadsheet.
This works fine but requires the path of the file in question to be stated as one of the parameters. I have donjhe this and it works but, I would like the user to be able to navigate to the file using the standard open file dialog box.

well what to say... it works... the problem is: the browse window appears and i can select the picture that i what, etc... BUT i don't know how to my selection be inserted in a field already created (object OLE) in a table. so can you help me on this by changing this code or another option... my e-mail: email@example.com my Thanks
The following code browse from one form to another and shows the record details I select in the first form which is what I need, however, the problem is it only shows that record and will not allow me go to next or previous records when pressing NEXT or PREVIOUS by saying this is the First Record or this is the Last Record.
Anyway to modify it to allow me navigate to other records.

I want a user to click a button, have the file open dialog open, they select a spreadsheet, and then it imports into a table. The problem is the filename can be different every time. The table name will remain constant.
Here is the OnClick:

I adapted the findform from the address book sample database. After the search is performed I would like it to be able to continue to browse (continue scrolling through) the rest of contacts rather than excluding everything but matches. More like a go to kind of search rather than a select query. I'm betting this is a simple fix (I hope), I just don't know what it would be. Any help?
I would like to create a form to allow the user to choose a location to place a file. I would prefer to have a browse command button so when he/she clicks the windows explorer view opens and the user can select the location. I have seen this done, but I am not sure where to start. If anyone has an example to show me, it would be greatly appreciated.
In my database I've encountered a hitch - I've got one form set up to view one person at a time and I've got many records in this database - Is it possible to create a textbox and a button called search that will take me to the record containing this text?
i.e currently im on record abc i type into the text dfe and press search - it will take me to a record that contains that text?
My Acess2000 database holds records of members of an organization which I manage. I've got a button on my most-used form, called 'local members and helpfulness', which opens a report designed to print one envelope, using address data from the current member record showing in the form. I did this by configuring the button execute a macro. The button's 'On click' event is set to the macro name: 'mcrPrintC5env':
It works fine; the report shows up in preview mode so that I can click 'print' to print off that single addressed envelope. However, if I put an identical button on another form which uses the same data from the same "local members list" table (via a different query), it doesn't work. When I click the button in form view, a popup input box appears.
I want to ask is there any way to open another access database using when click button at form.. For example i have tracking.accb then at my switchboard form, i would like to have a button that can go to another access which is borrow.accb. Can these possible for me to do it..?
