List Options Based On Other Fields

I've been using this forum for a couple of weeks but this is my first post, so apologies if I've put it in the wrong place!! I have a table with some drop-down lists to fill certain fields, and I would the available list options to change based on information in other fields. To provide an example:

Field One: The drop down list lets the user choose "Alphabet" or "Number"

Field Two: The drop down list lets the user choose A-Z if "Alphabet" is selected in Field One or 1-100 if "Number" is selected in Field One

Hope I've been clear enough. Any help is greatly appreciated!!

Automatically Populate A Date Field Based On Value Entered In Another Field
I need to create a New Form control for this situation:

If I enter a date into a field and the choice for another field is equal to a certain value. How can I get the date I entered to be automatically populated into another date field.

For example:

If I enter 11/10/2005 in a date field and I choose either "BN", "BA", or "BT" in a text field, I need that date of 11/10/2005 to be automatically populated in another date field on the same form.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Automatic Values Based On Entered Data
Hi all,
Please bear with me if I'm asking a dumb question. I've been tasked to create a database from scratch and I've not had much experience working with Access.

**My Question**
Using a form is it possible to have the form automatically enter a "value" in one field based on the information inputed by someone in a different field.
ie. When some one puts in a value between 0 and 20 in one field it automatically enters a 1 in the other, and when some one puts in a value between 21 and 30 you get a 2 and so on down the line.

Thanks for the help.

Pulling Data From Other Tables Based On Values Entered
I'm attempting to build a simple database for a martial arts tournament registration. The weight division (Fin, Fly, Heavy, etc.) depends on the age, the sex and the weight. I've tried this several different ways, most recently by using one table called "competitors" with all the entrant's information, and several other tables based on the age class/sex (i.e. I have a table called Age 8-9 Male with the weights and divisions in it, and other tables for the other ages/sex).
So, basically, what I'd like to have happen is a report that will lookup in the correct table the division, based on the weight entered. In other words, for a record where the age is 8-9 and the sex is Male, the report compares the weight to the values in the 8-9 Male table, or if the record is a 12-13 Female, it looks in the 12-13 Female table for the weight, and places the correct division in the Division field of the report.
Probably going about this wrong.....but any help would be appreciated.

Combo List Based On Current Record
I am designing a contact management system and have hit a bit of a wall. I am farily new to Access so please advise if I am going about this the totally wrong way.

I have three tables; Contacts, Companies, Company_Addresses

ContactID (P)

CompanyID (P)

OfficeName (P)

What I want is when adding a contact, to have a drop down list in the CompanyID field showing all the companies in the Companies table, and then in the OfficeName field, have a list of only the offices related to the company selected in the previous field.

I can do the first list, but cant work out how to list only data related to the company selected in the previous field. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Sorry if this is in the wrong forum.

Thanks. James

Populate Form Based On Combo Box "On Change"
Hey all,

I'm new to Microsoft Access but I'm not new to programming. What I want to do is when the combo box triggers and On Change event, do the following:

SELECT user_email FROM user WHERE user_first LIKE '[COMBO BOX CHOICE]'

Then set the value of that query to the textbox called "reportedEmail". I know this is easy, but I can't seem to find a decent tutorial on it anywhere.

Populating Combo Box Based On Data In Another Combo Box
Hi all!

It's been a while since I've used Access, and I seem to have forgotten this.

I have a form which allows entry of Borrower's details. I have 2 combo boxes on the form.

They are:


Once the user selects the name from the cboBorrName, I want the cboLoanSN to display all loans associated with the Borrower so that they can select the correct loan and add repayment details accordingly.

I have added the following SQL statement as the record source of cboLoanSN

Code:SELECT * from tblBorrower WHERE tblBorrower.fldLoanSN=[Forms]![frmBorrower]![cboBorrName]

I have also added the following code in the After Update event of cboBorrName


However, it doesn't work.

Can someone please help me out?

Thanks a bunch!

How To Run A Report Based On User's Options

Combo Box To Also Select All Options
I am having an issue with a combo box on a form with the following query. It works exactly as it should, but unfortunatly, I need a little more.

cboASC is off a table, cboQCode is from values, If I don't fill 1 of the combo boxes I get a blank record (just fields).

What I need is an option to choose all Primary Locators and/or all Qcodes for a general report instead of a local report.

SELECT CallsEntered.[Work Order Nbr], CallsEntered.[Date Entered], CallsEntered.[Time Entered], CallsEntered.[Primary Locator Code] AS [ASC], CallsEntered.Headend, CallsEntered.Node, CallsEntered.[Grid Id], CallsEntered.[Q Code], CallsEntered.[Problem Code 01], CallsEntered.[Primary Finding Code], CallsEntered.[Primary Solution Code], CallsEntered.[Cancel Code], CallsEntered.[Scheduled Date], CallsEntered.[Wo Status], CallsEntered.[Date CheckIn], CallsEntered.[Assigned Installer], Calendar.Week, Calendar.Year
FROM Calendar INNER JOIN CallsEntered ON Calendar.Date = CallsEntered.[Date Entered]
WHERE (((CallsEntered.[Date Entered]) Between [Forms]![frmServiceCalls]![txtStartDate] And [Forms]![frmServiceCalls]![txtEndDate]) AND ((CallsEntered.[Primary Locator Code])=[Forms]![frmServiceCalls]![cboASC]) AND ((CallsEntered.[Q Code])=[Forms]![frmServiceCalls]![cboQCode]));

Your time and help is appreciated.

Updating My Combo Options
I just added a column to my table upon which a cascading combo box is built. When a name is selected from the combo box, 2 related fields populate. I want it now to populate a 3rd field. So I added the column to the table to input the data into that 3rd field, and adjusted the column widths and count in the combo box. However, when I indicate the control source of the 3rd field as the corresponding new column from the combo box, nothing populates in my 3rd field. I've tested it by designating one of the previuosly exisiting combo box columns and it will populate the data, but it seems to not be recognising my new column. I've also verified the properties of the new field to ensure that it is visible. What went wrong?
