If there's a post out there that addresses this, please point me in that direction as I've had no luck.
I have my queries listed in a table. On my form I have them listed in my combo box. The user selects the query they want and hits the command button "Run". I would like to show the selected query in a subform on the main form and then give the user the option of selecting another command button to export the query to Excel.
I thought it would be as simple as setting the recordsource of the subform to the query name in my combo box, but that doesn't work.
Current code to run query in separate window:
Command button "Run"
Private Sub Command9_Click()
Attempt at getting what I want:
Forms!frmQuerySelection!sfrmQuery.Recordsource = Me.Combo2.Column(1)
sfrmQuery.Recordsource = Me.Combo2
I have created a query with parameters keyed in from unbound textboxes on a form. Does anyone know of a way to display the results (queried) in the sub-form of the same form (main) the textboxes reside? I have the query set up to create a table but when I use that table (or the query itself) in the subform I get the error message:
"The database engine could not lock table "tablename" because it is already in use by another person or process."
This seems appropriate because I am querying for results, but is there any way to get the results of a query into a form, rather than the more common pop up datasheet? I have tried several macros to open and close the tables - queries - copied tables ..re-opened forms....etc, but can't get it to work.
Thanks, for any help, I have spent some time on this one!!!
I have a form with a subform (FindBuffer_Form) which I built from a Query (FindBuffer_Query) within the query criteria I have the following (Like "*" & [Select the main Batch Number] & "*")in order to search a particular number.
I want to be able to run the Query from a command button on the main form and have the results appear in the subform, If I have the Source object of the subform set to Query.FindBuffer_Query I get prompted twice to answer the Criteria before the form opens, after the form opens the subform is generated as per the search criteria.
Ideally, I want the form to open with no data in the subform run the query from command button and have the result in the subform.
I did a search and i found a thread that seemed like it would answer my question but for some reason the attachment isnt working. :(
Okay heres the question..
I have a form and it contains 3 fields and 3 command buttons. When i hit the command button it uses a query to display the results. What i want to do is instead of having the results display in a new window, i would like it to display on the same form .. maybe on the bottom of it. Should i use a subform or listbox/combobox..
I am having an issue with the sort order on a subform.
Basically I have a main form with Client Details and a subform hich displays the associated test results for this client. Each client can have multiple test results which should be displayed in date order.
Initially the form was based on the table 'TestResults' and I set up the form with the Orderby property set to the field 'TestDate' and OrderByOnLoad set to True. This didn't work and the records were displayed in random order.
Next I tried setting up the form based on an SQL query with the field 'TestDate' sorted in Ascending order - same result. Tried this with OrderBy and OrderByOnLoad both set/unset as a pair and individually - always the same result.
How can I get the subform to display the test results in date order?
When I query my database I want to return groups of records. The groups differ from one another based on one field (Employee ID) -- So one group with Employee ID# 1 may have 2 records and another group with Employee ID# 2 may have 5 records, etc. My question is: What is the best way to display these groupings and allow the user to scroll or navigate thru the different groups easily? Any help is appreciated.
Hi, can anyone tell me how to doubleclick on field (on a form) and it opens up a form that shows bounded filtered results. I have a sub form which has details supporting summary numbers. I want my user to doubleclcik on the currency field and the detail supporting that sum total, pops up automatically. Any help please? :confused:
Hi, I have created a form (Form1) based on a table (Table1) and also a Query based on this table (Query1). I calculate a field in the query (Expr1: [column1] + [column2]) Now i have created a text box on Form1 that should display Expr1. I know I could also calculate the value directly via the expression builder, but I would prefer to simply display Expr1 from my query. Which is the syntax I have to use in the Expression Builder? I tried "= [Query1]![Expr1]" but it does not work. Thanks for your help Tigrou
I am trying to allow end-users to only use buttons to navigate and display records in my database (so they don't know access is in the background) I have query that runs when they press a button but after they run it there is no way to get back to the main interface screen i.e. there is not a place to put another button and close the query. I was looking into creating a form to display the query results in datasheet view but it is not appearing the way I want. I inserted a subform and the results got better but I also do not like the way it displays because the user can see the subform, simple solution to get my data to display in the form so a user can view the results similar to datasheet view?
In my form I have a dropdown box. There are 7 values and based on the value it will run that query in sql server. I would like to have the query open in the form instead of opening up on a different tab. Currently on the command button click there are a bunch of if statements depending on what is selected on the combo box. Each value has a query associated with it because there are 7 different sql server DB's. The code is slightly different with each query.
We have a button running a SQL query via VBA, how can I make it so the results doesn't show up in a table/preview?Also, I know it's for the SQL forum but how can I make a text box to show the results of a query to display it on screen?
I have a subform that is populated by query results. In the query i have a field called Discussion that is just a free form field where the user can input any information. On my subform the field is not big enough to show all of the data if it gets large. Is there a way to add a scroll bar to this field on my qery so it will appear on the subform so the user can scroll down if necessary to see more of the text in this field?
I have 2 tables setup with a 1 to many relationship, simialr to 1 Customer having 1 or more orders. I created a query to prompt for all orders for a particular customer. I then created a form based on this query - i.e. linked the query to a form.
Now when I open the form I am prompted for the customer id and when I enter this all of the results of the query are displayed in 1 form. However, this is not what I want. I would like the orders for the customer to be displayed within a subform on the actual form. In this way the customer details will static and I can cycle through the customer orders in the subform separately.
Is there any way I can setup my query to display the results in this way? I need the prompt for the customer ID. Or is there any way I can setup the form to display the results in the above way?
I have a basic DB for recording supplier records, you enter a supplier ID and it performs Dlookups to run and display query results on the same form. That part works fine.
I've added a subform and linked it to an existing query which returns the suppliers top selling lines and the query picks up the supplier from the ID field on the main form, however when I enter a new id the subform doesn't update with the results specific to that supplier.
So I think I need a way of getting the subform to re-run the query each time I update the supplier ID field, but I can't see an option for this in the subform properties.
I have a main form (start_protocol) with an unbound subform (placeholderform).
Using a button in mainform I open a search form (search_protocol) inside the unbound form, by the code: ------------------------------------------------------------------- [placeholderform1].Visible = False [placeholderform].Visible = True Me.placeholderform.SourceObject = "SEARCH_PROTOCOL" -------------------------------------------------------------------- The search form (has a run query button) is build from a query named: search_protocol.
I want to be able, as soon as I pass the button, to have the results (from the query) inside the unbound subform, of the main form (Start_protocol).
I created a main form containing list boxes and a subform. What I want to do is to select items in the list boxes. Then, by clicking "Search" button, the data filtered by the selected items will be shown in the subform. But the subform cannot work and show the query results. I think I miss some VBA codes.
I wish to print the result from query in a subform. In my main form, I had a textbox call 'year' which asking user to input a valid year. The query will have to find out all the records that are in that particular year, one year before and one year after. After that, it should display the result in datasheet form. Can anyone out there help me in this matter?
My second question is Can we use crosstab query in the subform?
