Insert Current Date In Text Box On Got Focus
I have a form with two text boxes in which I would like to insert the current date automatically when the text box has got focus. Default value doesn't work because the current date may occur on two different days, and the default has to be null until the current date is inserted.

Can someone walk me through the process? Thank you.

How Do I Compair Table Date To Current Date
Hello,

I was wondering how to check a date in a table vs current date and
then put a yes/no in a colum if the date in the table is past current date.

In the form I know it should be wrote in the Upon Open Event
But I am unsure of the code.

Thank you for your time,

An SQL Insert Problem With A Date
Hi, I am inserting records into a table where one of the fields I want to insert is a date value from a form. When I run the query without inserting it it works fine. When I change the value into some other type (a string) it also works fine. I have tried it with a date 05/05/05 so it has nothing to do with the sequence. The destination field as well as the form has identical data types. The keys are OK as the record is inserted. Only the date is missing.
The error message displayed states:

Microsoft access set 6 fields to NULL due to a type conversion failure ...


I guess I am using the 'dateInvoiceSent' wrong or without the required format command. Any help is most appreciated.

INSERT INTO clientInvoice (InvoiceNo,clientName,dateInvoiceSent)
SELECT DISTINCT jobInvoice.InvoiceNo, job.ClientName, [Forms]![CreateInvoices].[InvoiceDate] AS dateInvoiceSent
FROM job INNER JOIN jobInvoice ON job.JobRef = jobInvoice.JobRef
WHERE (((job.JobRef)=[jobinvoice].[jobref]));

Insert A Date Into A Memo Field.
I have an application that has a text box on a form that points to a memo data type.

On the form, I wish to allow the users to insert the system date with a short-cut key. (Trying to use Ctrl-D).

I have coded a Keypress Event that checks for the Ctrl-D. "Current" code is below:
===============================
Private Sub PM_Comments_KeyPress(KeyAscii As Integer)
Dim MyString As String
Dim MyDate As Variant

'Check to see if user pressed Ctrl-D
If KeyAscii = 4 Then

MyDate = Date
MyString = Format(MyDate, "Short Date") & ":"
SendKeys ("") ' Perhaps I need to dump the Ctrl-D in the buffer???
SendKeys (MyString)

End If

End Sub
==================================
I say current because I have tried MANY variations. The code is executing properly on the Ctrl-D. I have watched the variables in debug mode and they contain what I want, namely "mm/dd/yy:" for the current date. Problem is, it inserts the TIME in the memo field. And it is the system time, not the integer of the date formatted into the time.

Crazy thing is, in debug mode, the darn thing will do what I want and insert the date in the VB editor page. Just won't do it in the memo field on the form.

Insert Date Into Memo Field
We have a memo field that we use for on going notes.
Each day they may type more notes.
Is there a shortcut key, a button, or a way to automatically enter the date
and time before the notes?

Current Date Querys
Hello,

I have about 1500 records in a table. We use a form to search through the records to find info on certain accounts. We now want to only search through accounts that are current, so I made a query to see only current accounts. I switched the search form from going off data right from the table to the new current date query. Now when you load the form it says "running query" and the application stops responding. The query seems to load up quick in raw format.. how come the application freezes when searching using the query instead??

thanks,
Matt

Most Current Date Query
Hi there, I am trying to put a query on my form which selects the most recent date of a members attendance from an attendance table and displays it in a text box, the code I am using is:

Private Sub Text41_BeforeUpdate(Cancel As Integer)
SELECT MAX(Attendance.AttendDate) as "LastAttended"
FROM Attendance
WHERE Attendance.membershipNo = Forms!Customer.sbfAttendance.Form.membershipNo
End Sub

Customer is my main form and Attendance is my subform. I think the mistake is that I dont have a field called last attended (you are not supposed to store data like this are you) and I need it to display in my text box (text41) on the main form

Thanks in advance,

Jon

Current Date In SQL Query
Maybe a simple question, but i do not know how to put the current date in the WHERE clause of a SQL query.

The query i have so far:

select [table1].*, [table2].* from [table1], [table2] where [table1].[field] = [table2].[field] and [table1].[enddate] is null

After this there has to be something like
and [table1].[begindate] < [Date] (where [date] is the expression)

I know that with Date() or Now() the expression can be made, but i do not know how, please advise..

Thanks in advance

Date - Current Month
Hi,

I hoping someone can assist me here, I've looked through the forum for other date related threads raised, but none seem to assist me with what I need to achieve.

I have created a query with an appropriate date field, and I am can't seem to work out how to write the correct formulae to get the query to only show data with a date range for the current month only.

I don't want the user to be prompted to enter any information, I want the query to automatically always, when in the current month only show data for the current month.

Any assistance would be most appreciated.

Sorting By The Most Current Date.
Hey all,

I have what is probably a simple question.
I want to sort my date field in a query by the most recent date.
When I use ascending or descending it looks at the Month/day/year to sort it.
I need it to look at year/day/month.

Any help would be awesome.

Insert Date At Beginning Of Text Field
I have a text field called Notes - where we will add notes about the particular job. What I want to do is have it a locked field with a button 'Add Notes'. When clicked it will insert the date and the user name of the person and then let them type the notes. When they move to the next record - I want that field to be locked again.

I've got some of it down but still not right. I can get it so it inserts the date but it overwrites what is already there. How can I get it to just add the data - not overwrite? And I can't get it to lock when they move to the next record.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Jason

Use Current Date To Change A Value In Records
I have a db that is a checkbook register. I use a field in each transaction record to tell whether the transaction is current or is a future transaction (if it is in the future then it doesn't yet affect my balance). For instance, if the item is not scheduled to be paid for two weeks (I schedule payments with online banking), I check the "future item" box, then that record for that item isn't included in the report that tells me my current balance. How can I automatically take away that check mark on records when the date in that record becomes todays date (or before today)? Because at that point it is no longer a "future" transaction but is current. I could do this manually but it seems like there should be a way to do it automatically.

Current Month / Date Problem
I have the following code that should populate the current month date range in the startdate and endDate fields of a form. I do the same thing for the current year and that works great. Can someone tell me what is wrong with the code for the month button. It displays 1/9/07 - 2/8/07. If the current month is September, it should give date ranges from 9/01/07 - 9/30/07.


Private Sub cmdmonth_Click()
'Sets the Date From and Date To text boxes
'to show complete month (from start to end of current month)

Me!StartDate = CDate("01/" & Month(Date) & "/" & YEAR(Date))
Me!EndDate = DateAdd("d", -1, DateAdd("mm", 1, Me!StartDate))

End Sub



The code below works great for the year. It displays 1/1/2007 - 12/31/07

Private Sub cmdyear_Click()
'Sets the Date From and Date To text boxes
'to show complete current year

Me!StartDate = CDate("01/01/" & YEAR(Date))
Me!EndDate = DateAdd("d", -1, DateAdd("yyyy", 1, Me!StartDate))

End Sub

Current Date/Time Field
I have a form with date/time field. I have the default value at =Now(). My problem is I would like for this particular field to stay with the current date/time all the time. I mean if I created a form last week with the date/time of 3/14/2005 12:54:34 PM and go back to the same form to edit something this week I would like for that particular date/time to be the current date/time and not the date/time from the week and time the original form was created.

Thanks for any help!
