How To Disable Action Query Popup Messages
I'm told (via the non-helpful help system packaged with MsAccess) that the way to 'turn off' the helpful confirmation message related to an action query is under tools>Options>Edit/Find tab, and then uncheck the appropriate boxes.
I've done this. In fact, right now I have all three boxes unchecked which relate to confirmation messages (record changes, document changes, and action queries) - and I'm still having that same popup message every time I run the query, or have a report pull the query for me.
this wouldn't be more than just a hassle, except that one of the end users for this system isn't the most computer-savvy person in the whole world. In fact, I desperately need to "steve-proof" this system! I have this nightmare of being woken up at midnight because of this little glitch. any ideas how to disable that popup confirmation message for good??
Hi, wondering if anyone can help. Basically im running a macro for a procedure which contains a number of queries. Is it possible to get rid of the warning messages for every query when it runs, bearing in mind the answer has to be yes for every query.
I have no idea wheather this is supposed to go in Queries or Forms, so feel free to move this to either.
Here's my problem:
I made a query that looks at three text boxes on a form. I'm not sure how to set up the buttons correctly so I just bluffed it (like always :) ). Every time I run the query it keeps wanting me to re-enter the data that it was supposed to look at anyway! If you need more info, just ask. Thanks.
P.S.: I'm really new at this. I just learned about Access a week ago.
P.P.S.: I use Access 2000
I am having trouble making a command button do what I want. I have a subform within my form, but I only want it to appear when I click the button. I tried using the wizard but there is no option to open subform, only open form. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!
Is there a way to disable the automatic error messages that occur when a user:
1. enters a letter in a number field
2. enters a date in the wrong format (should be MM/DD/YY and they enter MM//DD/YY, etc.)
3. clicks on a button that will open a hyperlink (Currently a message pops up to make sure the user wants to follow the link, by selecting "Yes" the hyperlink opens.)
I would like to add in my own error messages for the above errors but I don't know how to disable the system generated error messages.
I would like to know how disable the warning messages that can pop up when a user tries to save a record.
"EX: The field 'Form Table.Agent' cannot contain a Null value because..........."
I would rather the agent see a pop up box that I created stating that the save failed.
Is it possible to make a query Pop-up? All of my forms are set so the Database background is hidden and they popup. I haven't been able to figure a way to do this with a query. Any help or suggestions would be great :)
I need to add a new field to an existing action query, using Access 2002 on the front end and SQL 2005 on the back end. I have added my new field to the existing action query, but the results are not what's wanted. The new field shows up on the affected report, but the data is not imported to the report. My guess is that I need to link the two tables in the action query where SQL is pulling the data from, but I'm not sure how to do that. The existing action query only has one table and not the one I need to pull the data from. Can someone tell me if I'm on the right track and if so, how to proceed? I've already been warned to backup the existing tables before executing the modified query. Thanks in advance to anyone who can help.
Can this be done??
I want to open a report, run an action query to create a table I want to use for the current report?? If It can how would I do it??
I have an access database in which I am updating a table from a form using visual basic for access. I have got the update to work, however before the application appends the table, it asks a question "You are about to append a row" then an option for "yes or no"
I have a custom message that appears after the appending, but I do not want the message in bold above to appear at all. Does anyone know how I can suppress that message?
I have slitted my database and given each user a copy of the front end so tha I can work on the master. I have notice that each time I sent them an updated copy of the new file once they replace the old one in their C drive, when they run a push button which makes run certain append queries, I have noticed that the message comes up although I have removed it from the Options settings. I was wandering if there was a way I can exclude this via code. THank you.
On my main screen I have a button that I press and it pulls up a
pop up box...in the box you type in one item and hit ok then
the query goes and gets the results.
how do it make it so when I click the button the pop up box
has lets say four areas where I can enter different items and
then it goes and gets all four...or three or whatever I need ?
I'm trying to implement a new pop up on one of my queries.
When the user runs the query a pop up will appear and he will enter a currency number (19.95) and it will display all currency (<) less than 19.95.
I use this wild card pop up currently and have tried to modify it, but can't seem to get to do what I need.
Code:Like [Enter Min-Amount] & "*"
Thanks for your help,
I am trying to append records from sales table to sales archive table if salesdate# is <#01/05/2006
It works fine if the sales archive table is blank else it give me an error null conversion failure.
how do i fix this?
I like having the action query warning appear with what I am doing - "You are about to update xxx rows". The problem that I am having is that when my RunSQL statement in the code executes and selects no to the warning, I get the error -
Run-time Error '2501'
The RunSQL action was canceled.
How can I trap the no selection so that this vba error does not appear?
This is a copy of the SQL statement used to update records from the tblContentImport Table to the tblContent Table.
UPDATE tblContent INNER JOIN tblConentImport ON (tblContent.Code = tblConentImport.Code) AND (tblContent.Type = tblConentImport.Type) AND (tblContent.Title = tblConentImport.Title) AND (tblContent.LoginName = tblConentImport.LoginName) SET tblContent.[Date Assigned] = [tblconentimport].[Date Assigned], tblContent.[Date Started] = [tblconentimport].[Date Started], tblContent.[Last Accessed] = [tblconentimport].[Last Accessed], tblContent.[Date Completed] = [tblconentimport].[Date Completed], tblContent.[Time Spent (min)] = [tblconentimport].[Time Spent (min)], tblContent.Score = [tblconentimport].[Score], tblContent.Result = [tblconentimport].[Result]
WHERE (((tblContent.LoginName)=[tblconentimport].[Loginname]) AND ((tblContent.Title)=[tblconentimport].[Title]) AND ((tblContent.Type)=[tblconentimport].[Type]) AND ((tblContent.Code)=[tblconentimport].[Code]));
Now I want to Delete these same records from the ContentImport Table. I change this statement to start with the word DELETE and Access want me to identify which table to delete the records from. What is wrong with my statement. Please help?
Hi everyone, I'm nearly done finishing a database for a legal firm and one of the small issues I'm having with this project is that, I have a button that creates records in other tables once a record is created in a primary table.
I have a table called tbl_login, it has a field called job_number (which is an autonumber), and when all the info is entered in the form associated with tbl_login I want a button to give the user the ability to create a record in tbl_billing with the value of job_number, now this is a easy append query, works great, but the problem is, when the button is pressed there is an event message, "You are about to update an table....." this is the natural warning even message that access gives before a change is made, my questions is.
To please me end users, how do I get that event message to stop popping up. So they just hit the button, it appends, no warning.
I'm open to suggestions,
I have a popup form called Labor that is working perfectly fine, what i mean is that it is getting populated with data from the query I built using a single table called PrimaryBid_Master. However I have had to add many fields to this table before invoking a query on it, now I'm running close to the 255 field max limitation.
So I have created a new table called Labor_Primary with all the fields that I need and took them out of the PrimaryBid_Master table freeing up about 50 fields.
The query I made combines 2 tables: table1=PrimaryBid_Master table2=Labor_Primary, they are linked by a common field called invoice#.
But now when I’m in the PrimaryBid_Master form and click the command button to go to the popup form Labor non of the values that were populating the popup form from the primaryBid_Master form work, they were working fine the only thing I changed was the popup forms record source to the new query I built.
Here is a print screen of the new query I built using 2 tables, and I also show the old query that works fine using 1 table. http://www.roofmart.net/query1.asp
Maybe you can see some thing I did wrong; do I need some type of filter to fetch the fields? When I open the new query there is no data/values in it.
Thanks--I appreciate any help.
I use a Make-Table Action query to import data from a linked table into my database. The linked table is on a network server that is automatically updated.
One column of the linked table is named "QTY/PARTIAL" and approximately 10% of the 500 records have a "P" after a number i.e. 1000 P. I would like to separate the number and the P into separate columns in the new table to faciliate being able to compute the total number "QTY".
Alright. I've tried searching, but to be honest, I'm not even sure what to search for.
I want to create some VBA that onLoad of the opening form of the database, it will take info from a query that looks for data entered for a student. It will be looking to see if there is data in two date fields. If it finds data in both fields, then I want to make a change to the EnrollmentID row of another table to changed the graduated column from No to Yes.
To expand on that, I'll want to check each ClassID row and if all of the associated students of that class have the column Graduated checked as yes, it will place the date in the date column for that particular class.
This is essentially my way of auto-archiving data as the combo box selections on my forms don't allow for class data to be shown if there is a Closed Date entered for the class and you won't be able to enter more test results for a student if the Graduated Column is checked in the Enrollment table (associates memberID, ClassID, CourseID into a single table)
Any insight on how to do this would be greatly apprecaited.
I'm running Access v2002 and my Action Query Wizards are disabled / greyed out - I've been searching on the 'net and can't find anyone whose had this problem, so I'm thinking there must be some simple solution
THE FOLLOWING ARE THE TABLES IN A FOLDER SAY "MY DATA"
DATE1, DATE2, DATE3,......DATE30 AND DATE31, EACH REPRESENTING DATA FOR EACH DAY IN A CALANDER MONTH.
I NEED TO MAKE A CONSOLIDATED TABLE (SAY...CONSOLIDATED_DATA_TABLE) FOR FIRST 15 DAYS DATA IN A TABLE. AGAIN, FOR THE SECOND HALF, I REQUIRE THE DATA TO BE ENTERED IN THE SAME TABLE (I.E., CONSOLIDATED_DATA_TABLE). IN SOME MONTHS, THERE WILL BE 31 DAYS WHERE AS FEW MONTHS HAVE 30 DAYS OR 29 DAYS.
ANY GIVEN TIME, I NEED TO ENTER ONLY DATA FOR A FIRST HALF OF MONTH i.e., FROM 1st TO 15th or FROM 16th TO 30th OR 31st DEPENDING ON THE MONTH.
I THOUGHT OF USING ACTION QUERIES (APPEND QUERIES) TO MAKE THE TASK OF APPENDING THE DATA INTO CONSOLIDATED_DATA_TABLE.
I MADE 31 DIFFERENT QUERIES FOR EACH DAYS DATA AND MADE A MACRO TO RUN ALL THE QUERIES IN ONE GO. HOWEVER, IT IS NOT RUNNING AND GIVES A MESSAGE THAT CERTAIN TABLES ARE MISSING OR WRONGLY NAMED. THIS IS HAPPENING BECAUSE DATA FOR EITHER FIRST 15 DAYS OR SECOND 15 DAYS IS NOT AVAILABLE.
I REQUEST SUGGESTIONS TO AUTOMATE THE TASK BY A MACRO, WHERE IT IS POSSIBLE TO RUN THE MACRO WHETHER DATA FOR EITHER FIRST FORTNIGHT OR SECOND FORTNIGHT IS AVAILABLE WITHOUT MUCH MANIPULATION BY THE USER.
ANY SUGGESTIONS PLEASE.
Is there a way to run append queries in code such that they mimic how the equivalent query runs as a qbe. For example with the dbfailonerror option set in the currentdbexecute call, and append query will fail and append nothing if there is even a single record that would generate a duplicate key or other violation.
Running an equivalent qbe append query, on the other hand generates an error message indicating how many records were rejected (if any).
Right now the only way I have been able to append records when there is a chance of violation is to remove the dbfailonerror option. By comparing the original record count to the records affected value, I can determine how many records were rejected but not the reason(s) for rejection.
I was wanting to create a menu button that would perform a function on the currently open MS Access select query. Basicly - I wanted to call a function and pass as a parameter the name of the open query - but I don't know if i can or how to get the name of the query in question.
Is it possible?
I am using a macro to perform following:
OpenQuery (select query which has a parameter asking user for a date)
RunCommand - select all records
RunCommand - copy
All works fine but of course it stops (with Action Failed Message) when no records to show - when this happens I need to show MsgBox "There are no records for this date" then close Query and Stop Macro
What do I put put in macro criteria box against these three actions (MsgBox,Close,StopMacro) ?
(Have tried various such as Dcount<0 , Is Null([Date])(field that has parameter)etc. Have also tried with opening Query in Edit or Read Only mode) I feel I must be missing something blindingly obvious! - Unable to find anything that gives a count of the number of records returned ie 0
Help greatly appreciated
I have a database called Tables.mdb with a Make Table Query called Qmak_Tables that I want to run nightly.
I have set up a Scheduled Task to run Tables.mdb every night. I have created a Form that loads on start-up. I have created a Macro that runs the Make Table query when the form loads. I have also de-selected the confirm record changes/document deletions/action selections in Tools > Options > Edit/Find menu so the query won’t be stopped by a prompt that needs manual input. Here’s the catch:
After the query runs, it displays the prompt, “The existing table will be deleted. Do you want to continue?” How do I disable this prompt so my task can continue to run?
I am trying to take input for my reports based on a query result dynamically for which i dont want to display the Datasheet after the execution of Query ,inturn i am displaying results in Report. Any help on this would be appreciated.
I have two fields the have differing dates in them. I need an action query to make the date in one field the same as in the other. I have thousands of records to do this to. Is there a way via an action query (update?) to do this or does it have to be an SQL statement query?
Does anyone know if it is possible to add a pop-up message to an individual record in a database? and if so how do you do it???

I modified a form in an existing split database, by simply adding several fields. Now, I get various messages such as " not Access database "
or if it opens, the following message when I try to close it:
"Your last change may not have been changed because an internal buffer was locked by another user... "
Plus, when I do get out, I cannot delete the .ldb file which it says is open by Administrator. The thing is I ma only one to try this new database and I set no permisasions or... ?
Please, any ideas?
Been asked to build a module to enable the user to send SMS text messages to mobile phones. I know Access can do this and some sample code I have seen was in VB and it uses MSXML2 but if anyone has any different approaches I would be interested.
I have a form that has a bunch of text boxes and a few drop down boxes (that reference lookup tables) that allow the user to add to a lookup table.
I have this working and the tables are beign updated. My question is that when I go to save I get a message box saying ("YOU ARE ABOUT TO APPEND 1 ROW (Yes/No)") for every look up table.
Is there a way to not show this message box. I think I am getting one for the form and other text boxes in general and then 7 more for each Lookup table. I am cool with one, but want to get rid of all the Lookup Table message to update.
Below you will see a bit of the code that I am using to update the Lookup tables.
SQL = "INSERT INTO tbl_CITY VALUES ( '" & CITY & "' )"
SQL2 = "INSERT INTO tbl_INSP VALUES ( '" & INSP & "' )"
SQL3 = "INSERT INTO tbl_OCCUPANCY VALUES ( '" & OCCUPANCY & "' )"
SQL4 = "INSERT INTO tbl_STATE VALUES ( '" & STATE & "' )"
SQL5 = "INSERT INTO tbl_TYPE VALUES ( '" & RENTALTYPE & "' )"
SQL6 = "INSERT INTO tbl_UNITS VALUES ( '" & UNITS & "' )"
SQL7 = "INSERT INTO tbl_ZIP VALUES ( '" & ZIP & "' )"
I have a subform I am using on a form. I would like to modify the code below that I have for a button on the form. I would like to use the master and child field link in the code below to only show candidates related to the main form. The link is candidate id. I have this working with a subform on the form but I would like to have this only display as a pop-up once the user clicks the button on the form. Is this possible? Thanks..
