I am trying to put a button on a form I have created so that I can use Filter by Form feature on it. I used the toolbox commnad button wizard and chose the Form Operations -> Apply Form Filter option for the button.
Unfortunately, this button does not work for this choice. In the Form view, if I click on this button nothing happens. Other choices in the wizard such as Edit Form Filter etc works.
Does anyone know what could be the problem? Is this an Access bug (i am using Access 2003).
If it is a bug, can anyone suggest what little modifications one might have to do to the VBA code underlying OnClick event for the button to make this command button work?
Hi, I'm an Access newbie. I've designed a fairly simple database to replace an old spreadsheet that was becoming unwieldy -- it was never really used so much for calculation as for data storage, so Access seems more appropriate anyway.
One of the functions I used in Excel was the autofilter, which I found very useful for zeroing in on specific portions of the data. I was wondering how I would do the same thing in Access, and then I discovered the "Filter by Form", which works just fine -- even better actually, since it has the whole and/or functionality.
I was wondering though if it would be possible to invoke "Filter by Form" using a command button. That would make it even easier, especially for some of my users who would almost certainly not know about "Filter by Form" otherwise.
I am trying to filter a form by using two unbound text boxes that a user can enter in their criteria and then clicking a command button to filter the form using the criteria entered into the text boxes. My fields are as follows:
I'm trying to use a command button in a form to filter and open a report. I am able to get it to open the report, but I cannot get it to filter the report based on a combobox in the form. I've tried every combination of code I could think of and find. Here is what I currently have:
Code: Private Sub FilterReport_Click() DoCmd.OpenReport "Report", acViewReport, "First Name='" & Me.FName & "'" End Sub
Code: Option Compare Database Private Sub Report_Open(Cancel As Integer) Me.RecordSource = Me.FName End Sub
"FilterReport" = Form Button "Report" = Report "First Name" = Report Field "FName" = Form Combo Box
I have a continuous form based on table "INCOMES" that shows all the payments received, which mediums can be (field "PMNT_MEDIUM"):
- check - transfer - taxes - cash
Table "INCOMES" is filled using another form, but in this particular form I just want to show "check", "transfer" and "cash" (not "taxes") so that I can track all the cash incomes.
Note: taxes are loaded because they appear in my invoices and I need them there to reach the invoice total amount.So my form has a search bar which allows me to search by PMNT_MEDIUM listing all "checks", all "cash" or all "transfer". I can also search by payment number (meaning: check number). To that end I have a "search" button that applies the filter. And I have another button that "cleans" the filtering by "putting a "" in the search-bar and then calling the "on click" of the search button".
What I need is, no matter if I click over the "search" or "clean" button, it NEVER shows me the "taxes".Search button, on click code:
If IsNumeric(Me.busq_chq_med) Then Me.Filter = "[PMNT_MEDIUM_NUMB] =" & Me.SEARCH_BAR Else Me.Filter = "[PMNT_MEDIUM] like'" & Me.SEARCH_BAR & "*'" Me.Filter = "[PMNT_MEDIUM] like'" & Me.SEARCH_BAR & "*' or [INVOICE] like'" & Me.SEARCH_BAR & "*'" End If Me.FilterOn = True
I have searched the forms and I see codes to apply filters to a button, but can someone tell me what is the code to remove all filters on the current form? I know I can always hit the filter on/off button at the top but im trying to keep users from having to leave the current database form. THANKS IN ADVANCE!
How can I create a "Filter Button" on a form and filter my records? I create a textbox on a form and a filter button on the right. Then I click the filter futton, the filter function will search/match the content in the box through the datasheet. And then the results of the filtering will be pop up on the split form datasheet.
When I click the filter button I get a blank message box titled 'Microsoft Access" and an OK button, when closed the filter works perfectly.I have checked this procedure in other forms and it works without showing the blank message box.The only difference with this form is that its control source is a union query.
I created a form that lets the user choose specific criteria, through a combo box, to run a report that houses several subreports. Each combo box is referencing 4 queries needed to run the report.
=[Acctmgr_renewed_detail]![RenewalMonth] And [Acctmgr_begbal_2005]![RenewalMonth] And [Acctmgr_cancelled_sum]![RenewalMonth] And [Acctmgr_renewed_sum]![RenewalMonth]
The form also includes a command button to preview the report. However, when I click the command button, the prompts for parameter values for the report popup again, when it should just print the report. Below is the code attached to my command button:
Private Sub Command2_Click() Me.Visible = False DoCmd.OpenReport "Acctmgr_monthly_activity", acViewPreview DoCmd.Close acForm, "valarie" End Sub
Is there something I need to add to my code? If so, what? Any help would be much appreciated.
In a form of my "cities-of-the-world" database I have amongst others the fields: "Latitude" & "Longitude" Now I'm looking for the command button code that runs a querry to find all neighbouring places i.e. [Latitude] would be 'Between (Latitude + 0.75) and (Latitude - 0.75)' ... longitude likewise. In other words: When the form displays the record for Berlin, on clicking the command button there should appear a list containing the cities: Bernau, Oranienburg, Potsdam ...
There is a continuous form with a check box in each row and a command button(cmdDetails) in the form footer section. You select a record and press cmdDetails and another form opens.
Rather than in the footer, I would like to have the command button placed in the details section itself, in each row, against each record, so that the check box can be eliminated. Pressing any button will open the corresponding form. how I can "associate" each record with the button next to it.
I have a continuous form in which I put a command button for each record called "detail". I would like to click on the "detail" button and make it open another form containing all (and only) the info on this record.
At first I refused to use an "id" to link both forms, but finally I added the "id" in the table... however still does not work.
continuous form: "04 - GASTOS_BUSQUEDA" id field on continuous form: "Gastid"
pop-up (details) form: "GASTOS_EDITAR" id on pop-up (details) form: "editar_id"
This is what I have tried on the "click" properties of the "details" button field (called "btn_editgs"):
4) Private Sub btn_editgs_Click() On Error GoTo btn_editgs_Click_Err Dim strWhere As String strWhere = "[editar_id] = " & Me.Gastid DoCmd.OpenForm "GASTOS_EDITAR", , , strWhere btn_editgs_Click_Exit: Exit Sub btn_editgs_Click_Err: MsgBox Error$ Resume btn_editgs_Click_Exit End Sub
I currently have two forms: frmE_SAFind and frmE_SAOrder
frmE_SAFind shows results from a query including fields [txtIDPO] and [dtmDate] Example: IDPO Date btnOpnFrm 6543 2/1/05 btnOpnFrm 5681 1/1/05
frmE_SAOrder shows order details including [txtIDPO] and [dtmDate]
I have a open form command button set up on [frmE_SAFind] that opens [frmE_SAOrder]. Is it possible for me to modify its properties so that when the open form command button is clicked, the order details in [frmE_SAOrder] will represent the order that the user is selecting via the btnOpnFrm command?
Example: If I click btnOpnFrm for 6543, [frmE_SAOrder] will show me PO 6543 details.
Hopefully I made myself clear enough to understand. Thanks for your help!
I have based a form on a parameter query, so that when the user is prompted to enter a 'Hobby' to search on, the relevant records will be displayed on the form.
Now, I have created a command button designed to open a template letter in MS Word for a particular hobby. The problem is, I need the command to open certain file depending upon the value input in the parameter box intially. How would I go about doing this?
in access 2003 i am not able to get the wizard to start. as per MS KB site the wizards are diaslabled due to security risk and i have to installed KB patch 829558 still unable to get the wizard to come on. anbody having same problem pleeese help
Per the instructions detailed here... http://www.fontstuff.com/access/acctut08.htm
...I created a parameter query in the form of a drop down box that uses a command button to produce a query.
The code is as follows:
Private Sub cmdCreateReport_Click() DoCmd.OpenQuery "qryUIRFollowUp", acViewNormal, acEdit DoCmd.Close acForm, "frmOpenUIRLookUp"
This produces the data I need in datasheet view. I want to use this same data to populate a form I've created that will use the above data as a springboard to add more data to another table (also connected to my form).
So what code do I need to add to the above so that along with producing the data the command jumps right to the next step and feeds this data into the form and then displays that form?
