Code To Populate Multiple Fields In One Sub Form From Another
I am looking to add multiple lines of record to a sub-form via a module activated from another linked sub-form.
As an example of what I want to do:
On identifying a particular type of vehicle servicing (e.g. 6000 mile service, 12000 mile service) on a service event sub-form of a vehicle form, I want to enter a list of required parts (e.g. oil filter, oil, etc) on another sub-form called "parts", that I can then edit before recording in an underlying table.
Can anyone help.
I have very minimal knowledge of MS Access and I have to create a database to input, update and display project information. How do I write a query to populate fields on a form, from either a single table or multiple tables?
I have a form with 3 combo boxes part No, Description, Cost. I have created a table with this information in I want to be able to select the information from either one of the three drop down boxes and the other two to automatically collect the information from the other colums of the table. Can anyone help please?
I'm sure this must be a well used function by many access users but I can't find anything about it online at all - please help!
I want to open a subform "AddReservation" and populate three fields with data taken from the relevant record in the main form. So in the btnOpenAddReservation_Click event to open the subform I set global variables, then in the form_open event I have this:
YesNo = MsgBox("This reservation has been added successfully, do you want to add another?", vbYesNo + vbQuestion, "Add More Reservations?") Select Case YesNo Case vbYes DoCmd.GoToRecord , , acNext Case vbNo DoCmd.Close acForm, stDocName2 DoCmd.Close acForm, stDocName DoCmd.OpenForm stDocName DoCmd.GoToRecord , , acGoTo, stRecordNo End Select
Trying to update fields (bound) on a form (built using the wizard) from value selected in a combo box. I can get this to work with unbound text boxes using an After Update event handler and a code query along the lines of:
Me!TxtJobCode1 = Me!CboJobDesc.Column(1)
But this doesn't work where the form field is bound to a table.
So qu is - how do I achieve the same result using table fields instead of text boxes?
I could use text boxes but not sure then how I can save that data as a record in the table if it is not bound to fields.
Hi. I tried to find out if this issue was already posted, but did not find. If anyone can help me, I am trying to auto populate two fields on a subform. The field I want to populate is the description of a role. So if the user selects the role name from the combo box, the description field will automatically update. Thanks.
I have a subform who's record source is a junction table. I use the subform to enter the desired information into the junction table. The subform uses a combo box to select the name of a partnership to enter. The combo box's record source is one of the joined tables. Another field on the subform is a text box for the Partnership EIN.
I'm trying to develope coding so that if a Partnership is chosen from the combo box list, and it is equal to the partnership name in the joined table, take the associated EIN that is in the joined table and place it in the field for the Partnership EIN on the subform. What I've come up with so far is:
Private Sub Partnership_Name_AfterUpdate() Dim strPartnershipEIN Dim strPartnershipEIN_Detail Dim strPartnershipName_Information Dim strPartnershipName_Detail
Can someone help me figure out how I can create a command button on a form that will prompt the user to enter a file # (or similar data) and that will auto-populate all the fields in the form from the underlying table? I hope this makes sense. Any and all help is greatly appreciated.
I am trying to create a VB command in my fProgram Requests Form where I can enter an address (from tCensus Table) so the census tract number(from TCensus Table) will automatically appear in the Census field. Is this possible? Are there any other ways to approach this?
I have been working on this code and I hope I'm on the right track. I am getting errors.
I have a form that has a command button that opens another form. When the new form opens, I want some of the text boxes to be populated with information from the previous form (by default). The frmOperatorInfo contains the information that will automatically populate the text boxes in frmSurvey. The following code is for On Open event for frmSurvey.
Private Sub Form_Open(Cancel As Integer, Cancel As Integer, Cancel As Integer, Cancel As Integer) Dim OperatorID As Long Dim LastName As String Dim SurveyDate As Date Dim MachineType As String
'When frmSurvey1 is opened, the values from frmOperatorInfo 'contain values for OperatorID, LastName, SurveyDate, and 'MachineType will synchronize and populate in frmSurvey1 OperatorID = Me.OpenArgs LastName = Me.OpenArgs SurveyDate = Me.OpenArgs MachineType = Me.OpenArgs
Dim RS As DAO.Recordset Set RS = Me.RecordsetClone RS.FindFirst "OperatorID = '" & OperatorID & "'", "LastName = '" & LastName & "'", "SurveyDate = '" & SurveyDate & "'", "MachineType = '" & MachineType & "'" If Not RS.NoMatch Then Me.Bookmark = RS.Bookmark End If End Sub
Please let me know if I'm on the right track and what I need to change in the code.
I have 3 tables ItemTable, ItemCompositionTable, CompositionTable
The user can bundle a few items together from ItemTable and name this item composition which is stored in ItemCompositionTable. They can then bundle these ItemCompositions together to create a "bundle of bundles" so to speak. This all works fine.
My question is this: If i have a combox box with a list of the final compositions, is there a way to press a button and see a list of all the items and their data so the user can change them?
I was working on a database several months ago and I came across this forum while troubleshooting. I had to abandon the incomplete project for some time now, but I am back and ready to get this thing up and running!
My database used to be comprised of lookup tables and other things for each of the fields in my main table, but I have recently scratched that idea for simply using list boxes.
My main problem, I believe, is with my form. I am trying to have two combo boxes, a beginning date and end date, and a keyword text box, all used as criteria in a query.
Seems pretty simple, and I actually got the keyword text box to work, but the combo boxes and between dates critiria return all records.
Can someone double-check my work? I'm sure it's just a simple error, but I will attach a stripped-down database for anyone to look through.
Thanks ahead of time for anyones help, it is greatly appreciated!
I am trying to create simple database of golfers and points they earn in seven events. Each event is its own field.
What I would like to do within a form, after entering the points earned in each event, have the form calculate the total points and populate that into a table. For some reason I can't seem to figure out how to sum totals across multiple fields.
The next step would be to have a way to sort in a form or report (i'm more familiar with forms) by points. That is open the form and it shows the top ten golfers and the points they have earned in descending order.
Any help that can be provided would be very appreciated!
Please be kind, i have little VB Knowledge, and wish to expand my learning on this topic.
I have a form that updates information on one table, and has a subform displaying info from another table.
the subform is filtered, and only shows data from what is specified from the filter of the main form.
If I update information on the main form for instance, field 1, (the data on the subform has the same data so there is the relation), how do i update the subform by only updating the mainform? can this be done through some VB or something?
if you folks out there can give a Smidget of info on which VB codes i can use i can pretty much figure it out.
Please bare with me as I am an Absolute Access VB code novice . I have a Form in my Access DB and I found the Following code on this site and placed it behind my search button :
Private Sub SearchButton_Click() DoCmd.OpenReport "All users", acViewPreview, , "[AUP].[First Name] = '" & Me.[Text34] & "'"
The Search works great but only searches on the 1 Field "First Name" . How would I expand the VB code to include another 2 fields within my table . ( the other 2 fields I want to serach appear on the Form ) .
I have created a search form, which is based on the Sample Search Form that kapeller had previously posted, and it has been working great, however I now need to adapt it a bit further.
Currently I have two fields "Primary Trade" and "Secondary Trade"
When I enter something in the primary trade box and click search, it just searchs the primary trade field with the following code:
If Me![GenTrade] <> "" Then sCriteria = sCriteria & " AND qrySearchCriteriaSubbie2.GenTrade like """ & GenTrade & "*""" End If
And likewise if I select something from the Secondary Trade field and hit search it searches using this code:
If Me![GenTrade2] <> "" Then sCriteria = sCriteria & " AND qrySearchCriteriaSubbie2.GenTrade2 like """ & GenTrade2 & "*""" End If
It returns the results using the code:
If Nz(DCount("*", "qrySearchCriteriaSubbie2", Right(sCriteria, Len(sCriteria) - 14)), 0) > 0 Then Ssql = "SELECT DISTINCT [GenCompanyName],[GenFirstName], [GenLastName],[GenPostalCity], [GenTrade], [GenTrade2], [genothertrade], [GenDivision], [CorrFunction], [CorrCC], [Corrother1text], [CorrOther2text] from qrysearchcriteriasubbie2 " & sCriteria Forms![frmSearchCriteriaSubbie]![frmSearchCriteriaSubbie2].Form.RecordSource = Ssql Forms![frmSearchCriteriaSubbie]![frmSearchCriteriaSubbie2].Form.Requery Else MsgBox "I'm Sorry, the search failed to find any records that match." & vbCr & vbCr & _ "Please try again!", vbOKOnly + vbQuestion, "Search Record" Call subClearFields End If
Is it possible to get it to search both fields at the same time? So if someone enters something into primary trade it also searches secondary trade as well and returns a result if there is information in either of the fields???
I have tried adapting the code several ways but still can't get it to work, so figure someone here will be able to help me out.
I am trying to populate a recordset in Access97 using the following code, but cannot seem to get it to work.
The table name is "EventData" that has Type and date fields. startdate and enddate are text boxes on a Form, for wich the user enters the date range, and then clicks a command button to build an Excel spreadsheet on the fly that will be populated with the results of the recordseet.
here is the code:
Dim db As DAO.Database Dim rst As DAO.Recordset
strSql = " SELECT EventData.EventType, Count([EventData].[EventType]) AS [Num Occurrences] FROM EventData WHERE ((EventData.Date) >= (Me!startdate)) GROUP BY EventData.EventType"
The error message that I am getting is "run time error 3061", too few paramaters. ALSO not sure if I need a semicolon right before the closing quote of strSql.
Right what im after sounds complicated but its quite simple.
I have a client database, in this database each client has 3 skill fields, i also have a form with a listbox and an unbound textboxes that are linked to the query so when the textbox is typed in the listbox updates.
Now ive sorted out the problem of not all fields showing it some of them are blank now the problem is.
When input text into one of the boxes the listupdates, now if theres text in two boxes. and theres data in one of each that matches it will show neither, because the query is looking for data that matches in both fields, now i need partial matches so it will give results of data in both fields.
not understanding fully what i mean?
i have zipped my db, if you open the db then open the form 'MainListRecTrades2nd' and fill in data in both primary and secondary trades that matches from the list you will see.
The solution i was thinking of would to have 1 textbox that searches all the fields and displays data from any of the fields in the list
I've been reading the forums for a few weeks and the info has been immensely helpful - however, I'm a fairly new access user and have a question I haven't found an answer to yet.
I have a form that I will be printing to line up employees with projects to work on (automobile parts) - the form looks at several tables, some cascaded (parts, employees, etc). I would like the form to contain fields populated automatically by selecting a combo box. I have a table name "Parts" which contains part name and part number and a field from another table name Plants, which contains stamping plants. My question is: If I select an item from a combo box (the part number) how can I automatically populate a label or text field in the form with the part name?
This is probably a simple question, but I can't find the answer. I have a form. Some fields on the form I want to have a certain table as their control source, while other fields on the form I want to have a different control source. I don't want to use a sub form. Is that possible?
I need to change a fields properties on a form depending on another fields data.
i.e. If a user ticks a Yes/No box saying they've done something they must also complete the date they did it. I can't set the date field in the table to be 'Required' as if ther is no tick then it doesn't need to be.
I have a table where there each record has 3 fields i need to add together for a fourth both in my form and the table and i need the data in that field to be uneditable. how might I accomplish this? In the control source i tried:
In this form is a text box called degree name that is link from the table degree. It autopopulates with the degree upon the sequence form first opening button clears the text box when i click add new sequence
I'm having a problem with my code. Hope someone can help.
This concerns two tables. tblCountry and tblProjectMain. tblCountry is the parent table.
I'm using a combo box to select a country which in turn I can allocate a Project to. when the country is selected I'll press the Cmd and it will add the project to tblProjectMain.
If the Country already has a project within the tblProjectMain I can use the Cmd to allocate another project so for example Country: Uganda. Project: Uga 002 (002 being the second project within that country.) If it's a new country and there hasn't been a record created for the tblProjecMain yet and I try and execute the Cmd I get "94, invalid use of Null" I believe this is because the code doesnt add the FK to tblProjectMain.
Does anyone know how I add this within the code so I can execute the Cmd?
Thankyou for any help in advance.
This is the code if it helps.
Dim strCountry As String, strNum As String, strSuffix As String, strFullCode As String Dim strWhere As String
I have the below code in a module, and when I run it, although the recordset displays the full data in memo fields, when it is put into an excel cell, the data is truncated. I don't understand why it is happening. Further, I have tested that if I attempt to fill the excel cell with a text string that is more than 255 chars, it works, which just confuses me more!
Any help would be appreciated... Thanks
Code: Public Sub TransferDataToExcel(strQueryString As String)

You veterans have probably heard these questions many times, I've had a search around but couldn't find quite what i was after.
This is my first database.
I have 2 tables, one for customer details, and the other is products (holiday packages)
I have made a product form for staff to input new holiday packages. And for the customer form this is also the order form, so a staff member picks up the phone and gets customer details, name, ph, etc and then asks what holiday package they want. I want this to be a drop down list that always fetches all the packages availiable form the product table and when you choose a package it shows all the details on that package.
I need this all to be on the 1 form, if the staff member has to swap back and forth between customer form and product form to get info on a product this will severly hamper productivity.
If my question is abit hard to understand i can take screen shots of my tables/forms to get a better idea. And if someone can really help me finish this database off i'll pay them somethign for there trouble.
