Job_No - Looks up Job table
Source - I want this to be automatically filled from the record associated with the job number from the Job table
Test_Result - Looks up Result table PASS/FAIL etc
Technican - Looks up technican names table

Job_No 0001 0002 0003 0004 etc
Source Cust1 Cust2 Cust3 Cust1 etc

Note also that we also have different job numbers for the same customer

Automatically Fill A Table From Data In Other Tables
I have 3 tables:

Student Info:
Student ID (Primary Key)
Name etc.

Assignment Info:
Assignment ID (Primary Key)
Assignment Number
Criteria Number

ID (Primary Key)
Student ID - Linked to [Student ID]
Assignment ID
Criteria Number

What I would like to do is be able to link the tables in such a way that for each student entered in the Student Info table, entries are automatically entered into the grades table for each assignment criteria.

For example:
Assignment 1 has criteria 1.1, 6.3, 7.2, Assignment 2 has 4.2, 3.3

When John Smith is entered in student info, the grades table is automatically updated with 5 new entries in the form:

John Smith - 1 - 1.1 - Enter Grade
John Smith - 1 - 6.3 - Enter Grade
John Smith - 1 - 7.2 - Enter Grade
John Smith - 2 - 4.2 - Enter Grade
John Smith - 2 - 3.3 - Enter Grade

That way I can have a form that automatically shows the possible criteria for each assignment on the sub form for each available student without having to type it in each time.

Your help would be wonderful

Automatically Fill In Field
Hi everybody,

I have a table that has 4 columns as shown below:

(*It really isn't code, I just couldn't figure out how else to keep the columns in place!)

Store Name Invoice Number Customer Name Customer Address
Store1 1 Bob PO Box 55
Store1 2 Joe PO Box 789
Store2 3 Chris PO Box 1254
On my input form, for entering a new invoice, when you select the customer name, I want the form to automatically fill in the correct address in the "Customer Address" field.

I think there has to be a way to do this because there is only ever going to be one address for every customer. And the same customers will be comming back very often.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Automatically Fill Field In A Form
I have inherited a database where the structure is that everyone has a People ID which is unique and is stored in a central table. However to create a person you create their People ID in the People table (the ID is generated by autonumber) and to make the rest of the database work you have to manually type the People ID into a separate field in the form to allow you to do anything further. How can I automatically add this new number to the people ID list?

Hope this makes sense

I have 2 tables:-

1 Master Input Table.
1 Job Lookup table - (contains Job Number and Name)

When in-putting job details into the Master Input table i would like to enter the job number only and have the job name appear automatically without running a query, much the same as a 'vLookup' command in excel.

Is this possible?

Can anyone help?

How To Automatically Update A Table Field From A Form?
hi there
I am having some difficulty with using Access (aren't we all?) ;-(
I have a table with a the following fields: START_DATE, END_DATE, RENTAL_PERIOD, DAILY_COST & TOTAL_COST.

What I am tring to achieve is that when someone fills in the START_DATE, END_DATE & DAILY_COST fields (which update the table behind the form) that the form will take the END from the START and put the result into the RENTAL_PERIOD field and then multiply this by the DAILY_COST value to automatically fill in and display the TOTAL_COST field.

It must be simple but I just can't get it to work and it's stopping me from sleeping :mad: I have found myself doing Access in my dreams which is not good!!

Any tips much appreciated - Thanks

PS I have written 2 queries which will calculate this for me but dont seem to be able to action the queries from within the form (if that helps!)

Would Like Field To Automatically Pull Data From Other Table
Hello Everyone,

I am having trouble with our receiving database. This database consists of two tables. One for vendors, which basically contains their vendor ID as well as vendor name and phone # etc. The other table is our receiving data table. When our receiving person receives product in, they log this in the receiving table including info such as date, autonumber for record, vendor etc. The problem is, when the person selects the vendor id, which is set up as a lookup field, we would like to have the vendor name pop up atuomatically within that record. I cannot for the life of me figure out why this isn't happening. The person is using a form to enter all of this data and runs a summary report at the end of the day. Our accounting dept. is requesting this info be added, but I cannot seem to figure it out.
Thanks so much for any assistance!
Amy (monet1369);)

Automatically Set A Field Based On A Field In Another Table
I have two tables, each has a "status" for a project. In the first table there is only one instance of each project name, in the second table there may be more than 1, will always have the same name but may have a different "Status" (field).

I need the Status field of the first table to be set to "Assigned" if ANY of the records in the second table pertaining to that project are set to "Assigned".

Can I do this with my table or will I need to do it with a query/form combination?

How To Auto Fill Table A From Table B
AUTO FILL-in - Of course, this is banal and simple - if you know how to do it. If you don't it seems impossible. Bizarre that on the whole internet so far I can't find a clear, simple example!

Table A is a list of lessons; table B a list of courses. They have various fields in common, such as "courseref", "course title", "room number", "teacher" etc

I want to enter the "courseref" in a form created for table A and fill in the other common fields in the same table (A) from table B, which is acting here as a lookup or reference table.

So, is it a combo box? What code goes where? Do I make a select query? How to link it to the key field and the associated fields. SELECTDISTINCT seems to come in somewhere, but NO SOURCE I can find explains it clearly to me (and I am not yet senile ....). Can any of you?

Automatically Fill Fields
hello all, any help greatly appreciated.....

I have two tables in the same Access 2003 database.

Table1 is called "Clients" and has address type fields, e.g. street_name, postcode, etc. It also has a field called CYPAN_area.

Table 2 is called CYPAN_Postcodes and has two fields; postcodes and the CYPAN area that postcode belongs to.

I want to create a function so that when someone enters the postcode in table1, the database searches Table2 and identifies which CYPAN area that postcode belongs to and automatically populates the "CYPAN_area" field in Table 1.

any tips greatly appreciated


PS I'm only a novice so I don't know anything about VBA etc, but I understand excel type formula

Automatically Fill Fields
I'm kinda new at ACCESS, and I've accepted an assignment that is giving me some trouble. For beginners, I could use some help as follows:
I am constructing a data entry form that is keyed on PID (Personal ID). I would like to be able to have certain fields in my form (Name, Title, Department, etc.) fill in automatically from information already stored in a different table, also containing the PID (which I can set as key). I would like this action to occur either when the PID field has reached 3 characters or when the PID field has LostFocus.

Thanks for any help in advance.

Automatically Fill Fields
Is it possible to have some fields filled in automatically as soon as a certain value has been entered into another field. e.g. if a town is entered in one field, then the postcode is automatically entered into the next field.

Fill Out Different Fields Automatically
I have a field called CompanyName with the autofill property. (You will begin typing the name and it will be completed automatically)
In the same form, I have other fields such as company's address, phone number, etc.
This is what I need:
Once the CompanyName field is completed by autofill I need the rest of the information associate with this Company to be automatically filled out (ej address, phone number, etc) In cases when the company has a different branch, to be able to change the information with the new address ( I know this will create a new record like it would be a new company, but that's ok)

The DB basically will have clients and these clients will be receiving services from a particular company. Clients and company providing services will be linked, so I will have a form with all the clients information and then another form that will link the client with a particular company, this second form is the one I need to do the auto completion.
Thanks in advance for any suggestion.

Fill Table Random

I have a very complex issue.

First of all there is a table called "tblParTeam" wich contain the teamname and ID of teams partissepating in a certain Tournament. The tournemant data is kept in the table tblTournament.

Each tournament contains a couple of variables: "Number of teams per tournament", "Number of Rounds" wich reside in the tblTournament.

Here is the thing. I also have a form based on the tblTournament. Each tournament had a number of partisipating teams (stored in the variable "Number of teams per tournament"). Then I have a table called tblTournamentDetail wich containt the Tournament_ID, TeamPro_ID (looks in the table "tblParTeam"), TeamContra (also looks in "tblParTeam").

When I pusch a button on my form, wich is based on the tblTournament, tblParTeams and tblTournamentDetail, I would like the X (Number) of particepating teams to be filled in randomly in the tblTournamentDetail.

Lets say I have 10 teams I want 5 to be filled in randomly in the TeamPro_ID and 5 in the TeamContra_ID.
How do I go about this?

Thanks in advance.

Fill Down Table In Access
Ok Ive looked and looked and read a multitude of threads to no avail. Please help me on this one.

I have imported a table into Access, I had no control over the original format of the table so Im stuck with the data as it is in that original doc.

So as it sits now in access..
index mnem client name
1 310055 blah foo
2 blah2 john
3 blah4 joe
4 310099 grr12 bob
5 blah2 john

etc. * about 50,000 literally in size.

Looking at the empty cells in the 'number' column I need each of those to be filled. to end up with:
index mnem upin name
1 310055 blah foo
2 310055 blah2 john
3 310055 blah4 joe
4 310099 grr12 bob
5 310099 blah2 john

I did this once in VB/excel but it was prohibitively slow. Im positive there is a better SQL/Access solution but just cant quite get it. My best effort to date is:
DLookUp("[mnem]","upin","[index]=" & [index]-1)
criteria mnem Is Null
In an update query updating mnem.

Downside all I get is say there is a block of 4 empty spaces in a row before the next mnem comes along, only 1 cell will be filled per run of the query.

index mnem upin name
1 310055 blah foo
2 310055 blah2 john
3 blah4 joe
4 310099 grr12 bob
5 310099 blah2 john

I figure #3 is somehow looking up at #2 before its updated and taking that empty value. ..just cant figure a way around it though.

I know this has been done before but no matter how much googling and forum diving Ive done I havent found something to specifically address this.

Thanks in advance for your help

Im using form to input new record and is there a way to automatically search the table and if I enter the item number, it will fill in the rest of the values with the previous record of the specific item number?

It's very straight forward. Select West Coast, and the states CA, OR, and WA are selected. De-Select West Coast and the states CA, OR and WA are deselected.

Any thoughts? thanks in advance.

Auto Fill In Data From One Table To The Other
Its been a long time since I did dB work - stopped back in the days of dBase IV.

Still, using Access 2007 is not that difficult - except right now. I have 2 tables; one with customer contacts, the other with project details. Heres what I want - hopefully someone can help:

Within the project table, select from a lookup into customer contacts a name, which then auto fills in the fields for phone and email in the project table. I want to do this in the table or form, but have the data deposited into the table for sure!

Any help really appreciated.

Fill A Primary Key From A Linked Table
I am not entirely sure that i am in the right place in the forum but my question is concerning updating data via a form so i hope it will be ok.
I have a 'product' table linked to a 'batch received table' with a 1 to many relationship.
I wanted the employee to fill the 'batch received form' (where all information about the item received are entered on the form and a 'transaction table' subform) when an item is received instead of calling the 'product form' for each item.
Obviously, when the item received is not registered in the 'product table' a Broken join error occurs.
I was thinking of putting a code in the 'on the error event' of the 'batch received form' requesting the user to register the product first with the 'product form' coming on the screen once the error text box closed.
Once the new value entered, the form is still stuck and i can't save new data with the product unless I close and reopen the form.

Here is my error code

Private Sub Form_Error(DataErr As Integer, Response As Integer)
Dim Msg As String, NewLine As String
Const ERR_NULLKEY = 3058
Dim stDocName As String
Dim stLinkCriteria As String
stDocName = "Item"
NewLine = Chr$(13) & Chr$(10)

Select Case DataErr
Msg = "You need to Register the product first to be able to proceed"
MsgBox Msg
End Select

DoCmd.OpenForm stDocName, , , stLinkCriteria
DoCmd.GoToRecord , , acNewRec

End Sub

I have try to requery the form but it still not working.
I am just starting VBA and would be gratefull for any advice, thanks.

Is It Possible To Automatically Fill In Fields With Previous Entries?
Let's say in one table (called Employees) I have two columns, Name (the Primary Key) and Job (Both are text fields). One row contains "Jack" and "Gardener" in each column respectively. If I were to have a form for a different table where I select Jack's name from a drop down menu of all the "Names" in "Employees" and it then automatically fill in the next field with his Job (which would be "Gardener").

I really hope I'm making sense... Is this possible?

Fill Access Table With Data From Internet
Hello all,

I have the following question.

I wrote a tool in Excel VBA that collects data from a web table and writes it to an excel sheet. The code uses the option "querytables.add" from excel.

Is there such an option in Access that does the same trick? (I would like to switch the whole tool to Access if possible)

Any help on this matter would be highly appreciated!

Thanks in advance,
