OK, I'll Try Again - Autofill And Dlookup Help PLEASE

Aug 18, 2004

I have been struggling with Access and the dlookup / auto lookup function.

I'll include my last post with the layout of my 2 tables and what I am trying to do

Please help if you can:

table 1 - OCMembersPayment

| transaction# | member ID | Payment Date | Payment ID | Payment Amount | Chit_checkNumber | Last Name | First Name | Notes | Ticket Number |

Table 2 - Member Roster

| Unique # | Member ID | FirstName | LastName |

Ok, I have eliminated any relationship between the two tables

What I want to happen is this:

When people put data in, the first data they fill in is member# - ex 2515 and then hit tab to move to the next field

When they hit tab, I want the expression to look at the member roster and find that #. when it does, I want the first and last names to get writen to the fname and lname fields on the form.

date is automatically filled in and Payment code (accounting code) is automatically filled in - default #

currently, this is the dlookup script I am trying to use and I get compile errors:

Private Sub MemberID_AfterUpdate()
dlookup("[memberID]","member roster","[memberID]=form!ocmemberspayment.[lastName]")
End Sub

(it is currently on the the Member # field on the form).

Later, I want to be able to ADD new members as they show up to the member roster table. So if the lookup does not return a name, once the transaction is filled in and saved, it will put the name in the member roster table. First things first though

thanks for any help

Reports :: DLookup Criteria - Autofill Product Name Based On ID

Apr 2, 2013

Im trying to make an invoice,

Im trying to autofill the products name using a dlookup

The ProductID1(2,3,4 OR 5) is selected from a list in a form and is sourced from "Products!ProductID"

=DLookUp ("Products!PName","Products", where "ProductID1" = "Products!ProductID")

Autofill Field Based On Value From Table Using DLookup Not Working

Jan 8, 2013

I am new to Access (using Access 2012) and All I am trying to achieve is to autofill the field [Frequency] from Table FullList based on the value of [Frequency] from Table Courses using a DLookup code used to update the FullList form. The code is not updating anything! It is frustrating! Frequency is a number (integer) and while Course is a text. The figures of my Access database are below.

I have a form based on a table with several fields. The table contains names of employees and their departments, etc.

When I fill in the form with the employees name, how can I have it autofill the dept?

I am not a programmer so if specific code is required, I would need to know exactly what it is.

Your assistance is appreciated.

Two questions,

1. After my relationship table is built, is it possible to have some tables automatics fill in according to what another field in the table is inputed? EX: I have a Ordertable(orderID,itemID,Itemdesc), and a Inventory table(ItemID,Itemdesc), When you select an Itemid to put in the order form, the order Description from Inventory would appear in the Itemdesc of the order form.

Is this possible? If so how?

2. In tables, is it possible to make a cell = to something? So like if I wanted to add a subtotal and a final total after tax, I could use = * .08 or something?

I am trying to self teach myself and I am sure I am going about his wrong.

I have a form with a fillable text box called ProcessCode, a drop down box called CostContainerSize, and a fillable text box called disposal cost. Their are dozens of possible process codes and container sizes of 55,30,15,5,P,Y etc... I want the disposal cost box to auto fill based on Process code and disposal cost. I wrote the following in the control source IIf([ProcessCode]="LF" and [CostContainerSize]="55","$65.00") THis works to auto fill, but obviously only for that particular set of parameters. I have tried adding "or " comments to include other sizes for that particular process code with limited success. I have tried IIf([ProcessCode]="LF" and [CostContainerSize]="55"or"30","$65.00"or"$50.00") among other variations.

Any help is appreciated.

Autofill Help

Apr 3, 2007

Ok, basically I have enough Microsoft Access knowledge to be dangerous.

I'm in the military and built a database that keeps track of the members who misuse their government travel card.

What I'm trying to do is enter a SSN into my form and have it fill in their name, rank, unit, etc if they are already in the data base.

I'm pretty sure it is possible, but not sure how to do it. Any help would be much appreciated!

Autofill Query?

Jun 16, 2006

Hi everyone,

I have a table which includes several columns. Two of these columns are important for this update query I wish to do. In my table, I have two columns like this:

API# Current Operator
1 |
1 |
2 | Bob
3 | Joe
1 | Mike
3 |
2 |

I am wondering if there is a way to run an update query which would automatically fill in the blank fields in column 2. The numbers in column 1 will always correspond to the same person in column 2.

Autofill On Checkbox

I've searched the forums and Google. I've possibly come close to finding a solution, but can't quite get it right.

I have a checkbox that I want, when it's checked, to put the current date in a Date Completed field.

I know I have to edit the OnClick event, but the code has puzzled me.

Thanks for your help.

Autofill Via A Combo Box

Sep 9, 2006

Hi sorry I am only new to this, I am trying to learn as I go so please excuse my ignorance. (I have done some searching on this forum but am just getting more confused)
I have a form which is based on a table that holds all the info for orders placed by customers.
It holds info on all the orders plus some info about the customer

Example of Orders Table

Order ID
Customer No
Item Number
Qty Ordered
Order Type
Day Received
Last Dispatch Day
Actual Dispatch Date
Date Due at Customer

On this form I would like a combo box which is linked to a Customer table which has all the details regarding the customers. When I pick the customer I would like all the other fields relating to the customer on this form (Customer No, State, Suburb) to be auto populated to save entering data individually.

Example of my Customer Table

Customer Name
Customer No (not unique)
Customer Factory
Rail Terminal code
Destination Rail code
Destination Road code
Cust Code

I have tried many different ways but no success.

Any help or advise would be most appreciated

Autofill In A Subform

Oct 12, 2006

I manage a self-made database of property deeds for my business. Since it often happens that there are multiple owners and multiple buyers of these properties, and that many of the owners and buyers are the same people from time to time, I think I can manage this database more efficiently by using subforms that autofill when I start to type a person's name. I hope this is possible.

My main table and form are based on the deed description. Each deed will have unique buyers and sellers and each buyer and seller can be on many deeds. Thus far I have created tables and queries for sellers and buyers. The seller subform is set up and can accept entries in the form view. When I scroll from record to record, the names seem to show up where they belong, so I'm happy with that. The problem is that when a name comes up a second (or more often) time, I end up typing the entire name in again. This sort of defeats the purpose of having related tables. How can I get it to recognize that the name is already there and perform an autofill for me? What am I missing?

Autofill Problem

Dec 1, 2006

Hello friends,

I have exhausted my resources, and have not figured out how to get my text boxes to automatically fill with data associated with the selection of a combo box.

I have a table with the following fields:
PK - autonumber
Frequency - text
TimeD - text
TimeN - text

The frequency entry describes the frequency at which paramaters are to be measured, and Time1/Time2 are the times that are set by each frequency for Day and Night resp.

I know this has been discussed ad nauseam, but I have spent almost a week searching this forum as well as a couple of others, and just keep coming up short.

I have uploaded a zipped db that will better illustrate where I'm at with this project. Please have a look.

thanks in advance.

Autofill From A Previous Value

Sep 1, 2004


What I need to do is two fold. I have a table in which I track clinets coming in and using our services.

Question 1: I want to be able to have a a date field default to the date I first type in when I open the form and remain there in all
subsequent records till I change it. The data is only entered once a week and we usually have 400 client visits per week
with about 75 - 120 per day. So it kind of gets repeatitive to keep typing in the date. I am aware of the CTRL+', but the staff who use this database do not even want to do that.

Question 2: Next problem....How would I create an autocorrect function that will automatically fill in a name...i.e. I begin to type jo and it will automatically fill in the hn...but I want the values to come from previously entered data from past records, similar to the way Excel does it in spreadsheets.

Any Ideas would be greatly appreciated.
