Code To Populate Multiple Fields In One Sub Form From Another

Sep 6, 2006

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.

Populate Table With Input From Form With Combo Box (multiple Fields)

Feb 21, 2011

I am using Access 2007 and have reviewed many blogs and looked at the Northwind db to try to solve this problem. I would like to create a form that functions in the same manner as the "Order Details" form in the Northwind db. Specifically, I want to create a form that will allow me to input a value and have the form get data from another table and populate the table I need populated.

I would like to populate a table "Outside", field names are Key, Name, term, Value, Date.

The table that contains the data is named "CV" and the filed names are Key, Name.

In the form, I would like to enter a value for Key into a combo box, and have it put the value for Key and for Name into the form, and allow me to enter whatever I want to in the Term, Value and Date field. When I tab out, I would like all this data to be in the table "Outside.

Forms :: Create A Form Using Combo Box To Populate Multiple Fields And Tables?

May 26, 2013

I'm trying to create a form using a combo box to populate multiple fields and tables.

I've created a text field to display the added information using this format:


in the text box control source field, and this works for display purposes.However, I need it to populate this data into a field on a table.

For example:

My combo box looks up data that has 2 columns, Part Number and Description.

The control source for the combo box is "Part Number". And that populates the part number in the "Main" table no problem.

The text box I created using the above format in the control source populates the field in the form, but not the "Main" table.

Is there a way for the other (description) field to also populate the "Main" table as well?

Populate Form Fields On Open

Aug 7, 2006

Hi all,

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:

Private Sub Form_Open(Cancel As Integer)

Me.CatID = stLinkCatID
Me.CatName = stLinkCatName
Me.OwnerID = stLinkOwnerID

End Sub

But I get the error 2448 'Can't assign a value to this object'.

However if I put the same three lines into the start of the subform's btnARSave_Click event it works fine:

Private Sub btnARSave_Click()
On Error GoTo Err_btnARSave_Click

Dim stDocName As String
Dim stDocName2 As String
stDocName = "OwnersAndCats"
stDocName2 = "AddReservation"

Me.CatID = stLinkCatID
Me.CatName = stLinkCatName
Me.OwnerID = stLinkOwnerID

DoCmd.DoMenuItem acFormBar, acRecordsMenu, acSaveRecord, , acMenuVer70

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

Exit Sub

MsgBox Err.Description
Resume Exit_btnARSave_Click

End Sub

What am I doing wrong? Why can't I populate the fields on open?

Many thanks

Populate Form Fields From A Combo

Jul 30, 2005

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.

Any help appreciated

Forms :: Populate Form Fields Based On Selection In Another Field

Jul 18, 2013

I have a Customers table and an Orders table. My Customers table is a bit different than the norm because I couldn't figure out any other way to do this.

My client's customers are either businesses (companies) with a contact person, or individual customers. So, in the Customers table, I have the following fields (there are others but do not apply to my problem):

Customer ID

So, if it is a company the data entry person would enter the company name and the full name (EX: Doe, John) in the contact field, but if it is an individual customer, then they would leave Company and Contact blank and enter just the Customer name (Ex: Doe, Jane).

So, in the Orders table, I have combo boxes for look ups for the fields Company and Customer.

That works okay, but I would really like for the Customer ID to post into a text box once the Company or Customer has been selected. In other words, the input person would enter the name, then it would show that Customer's ID #.

Modules & VBA :: Populate Word Fields From Access Continuous Form

Jun 3, 2015

I have a form that I have exported certain fields into a word doc (it is up and running just fine). I created bookmarks in word and put some VBA into my access form, so when I click on 'Create word report' it pops up and automatically populates the record I am on. Here is the tough question,

How to make this work with a continuous form? My main form has several subforms, one being a continuous form. The main form shows one bridge at a time. The sub continuous form shows information for all of the bridges spans (could be anywhere from 1 to 9).

Forms :: How To Populate Subform Fields When Drop Down Selected In Main Form

Mar 12, 2013

I have built a form that holds details of training records. What I want is when a drop down is selected in the main form, that it will populate some of the fields in the subform. I have this working at the moment, that for example, when a certain course is selected, that their modules will appear in the subform. Where my problem arises is that I have a relationship between two tables that I want to appear on the subform, so that details can be filled in on the subform against the list of modules that automatically appear.

Queries :: Populate Form Fields With Records From A Table Bound To Recordsource

Feb 5, 2014

I would like to populate form fields with records from a table/query so that they are bound to the recordsource and the record to be displayed can be selected from a combobox. I am hoping that in this way, any changes made are propagated to the original table.

I have created a combobox from which the primary key can be selected and added all the fields from the table appearing on this form as values.

In my Change event for the combobox I have this code:

Private Sub cboID_Change()
Me.RecordSource = "SELECT b01_Participants.*FROM b01_Participants WHERE (((b01_Participants.ParticipantID)= " & cboID.Column(1) & "));"
End Sub

However, I receive an 3075 error when this code runs which seems to relate to my syntax or an extra ")".

From Code To Populate A Recordset

Jan 28, 2006


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.

Any help is appreciated.

One Table, One Form, Multiple Fields

Feb 9, 2006

Hello everyone,

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!

Multiple Query Fields Of A Form

Jan 31, 2008

Hello everyone!

I am new to MS Access. I am creating a small database for motor vehicle clearance. I have a SEARCH form where i want to put the fields for searching query table:


REF No.:


I need it in such a way that even when only one of the above fields is supplied with data it should still return correct data from the query table.

For dates (BEGIN DATE, END DATE) i tried: Between [forms]![search]![begin date] and [forms]![search]![end date]

This worked well when placed alone of the SEARCH form. But when i added more fields (VEHICLE MAKE, REF No.) the query returned nothing but a blank query table.

How can i possibly resolve this.

I will appreciated.

1 Form, 2 Tables, 1 Field To Multiple Fields

Jul 1, 2005

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.

like Docmd.write something?
