Problem - Automatically Fill A Table Field From Another Table

Mar 14, 2008

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

I know I can fill in a value on a form from a combo box looking up another table but dont know how to do this in the main table

Any ideas?

General :: Automatically Fill A Table Using A List From Another Table

Jan 30, 2014

I have a table being filled everyday that contains the following:

Ward_ID (linked to the Wards table)

At present, the data encoder manually chooses the ward via drop-down list to identify the ward, and fill the census field. Since we have 20 wards, we find this exercise eating our precious time (since we have tons more of data to enter aside from the census). I'm wondering if there's a way to automatically list all the wards in the table in a specific date, so that the encoder would just proceed in filling the census per ward.

One idea thrown was to design the table like an excel sheet (each ward has its own column). Another idea was to make individual tables per ward and make a default value for the ward_id. However I think these two are not the right directions.

Automatically Fill A Table From Data In Other Tables

Mar 20, 2006

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

Aug 12, 2005

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

Feb 3, 2007

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

Tables :: Automatically Fill Field Based On Keywords In Another Field

Dec 3, 2013

I'm trying to complete a database.

It is to manage details of pupils with additional support needs, and plan for the extra arrangements the school will provide for assessments.

It has 2 Tables

-ScottishCandidateNumber primary key (Unique number which identifies pupils to the exams board)
-NatureOfNeed (memo)
-EvidenceOfNeed (memo)

-ID Primary key, Autonumber
-Pupil foreign key to tblPupilDetails

I currently use forms for adding new pupils, and updating pupil subjects/arrangements/levels.

I also have forms to search for specific pupils, and to create lists for faculty heads showing which pupils are taking subjects within their faculty and the arrangements we expect to provide.

I use the forms to run queries, which can then output to reports for printing.

Where I am currently having an issue is the faculty field in the tbl-SubjectLevelArrangements. (If I didn't have to report to faculty heads I would just leave it out, but management will insist.)

Currently I have a form with dropdowns for adding subject, faculty, level and arrangement manually. This is acceptable for the subject, level and arrangement because they are completely interchangeable and dynamic throughout the academic year as pupils may drop down a level, or change the type of arrangement they require.

However as faculties are inextricably linked to subjects, I want to remove the possibility of human error. i.e. when a user (me) chooses either geography, history, or RE, then the faculty will always be Humanities, likewise if the user chooses French, German, or Spanish, then the faculty can only be Modern Languages etc.

I'm convinced there must be a very simple way to ensure that the faculty field prefills based on the limited keywords available in the subject field, but I just cannot figure it out.

Field To Automatically Fill With Correct Value Based On Information In Multiple Fields

Apr 16, 2012

I have a database in which we are trying to have a field "Headcount" automatically fill with the correct value based on information in multiple fields. The "Headcount" field will be based on about 6 or 7 rules. Most of the rules i can figure out, but im having trouble figuring out what the best way would be to search for a single individual's projects when they are on more than one project at a time. I thought about using a counter of sorts to count how many projects someone was one, but how do I pick them out of the entire table once i have found out the number of projects? Would a for loop work best or just many if statements?

How To Automatically Update A Table Field From A Form?

Feb 19, 2006

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

Apr 28, 2006

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);)

I have a form and it has a field as question. I also have a field as I'd in this form from the same table that is autonumber. I want that for each field the question will be created automatically in the table as below:

Is epm ( my Id field) is created

They should also include Id number of each row. So It would be like:

Is epm -1 implemented

For each row

Define A Field So That It Is Automatically Filled In With Value From Another Table?

Jan 28, 2015

I would like to define a field (mailingaddresscounty) as type lookup using a field (county) from another table (Zip). But instead of the user selecting from a long list, I would like the selection to be automatically made based on the value of another field (mailingaddresszipcode).The two tables are Organizations and Zips. The user enters the 9 digit zipcode in the organization table (mailingaddresszipcode). I would like the county field in the organization table (mailingaddresscounty) to draw from (link to?) the corresponding 5 digit zipcode in the Zip table (zip) and return the correct county for that zipcode.

Automatically Populating A Table Field Based On LOOKUP Value?

Nov 15, 2013

I have two tables, "Membership" and "Class." The Class table has a class ID, class name, and cost of the class.

In the Membership table, I have a field to accept a class ID that is entered by a user. I also have a column called Tuition. When the user enters a classID in the Membership table, I would like the dollar amount associated with that classID to automatically appear in the field called Tuition in the Membership table.

I tried the LOOKUP data type and calculated fields, but no luck. I know that DLOOKUP can be used on forms, but I don't see how it can be used directly with tables.

Is this even possible?

Automatically Set A Field Based On A Field In Another Table

Aug 12, 2005

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?

General :: Automatically Update Field Based On Entry In Another Table

Jan 14, 2013

I have two tables, one called 'Company' and one called 'Person'. Both tables have several fields, but they both have the same primary key, i.e. 'Naam'.

When I type in a name in the 'Person' table, I'd like the 'Company' table to automatically display the name too. So for example if I type in 'John Doe' in the person table, I want to be able to switch to the 'Company' table and have the same name displayed there, automatically.

Automatically Copy Data From One Field In A Table To Other Related Fields In Other Tables

Aug 7, 2014

I'm trying to create a system where if I enter data into one field it will automatically appear in the corresponding field in another table. For instance if I enter the values 10,12,15 into a field called QID in table A I would like this to appear automatically in a field called QID in table B. Both tables are related and I have enforced referential integrity and 'cascade' options but this still doesn't seem to allow one table to automatically update another. My ultimate aim would be to have a form that you filled in data for the field QID once that then propagated to both Table A and Table B.

Employee ID (Foreign key to link to the employee table)
Status (Either valid or expired)

I want when I enter the end date, the system checks the end date against the current date and fills in the status field with either valid or expired as appropriate. For instance if the contract end date is March 10,2016, the status must be filled in the word valid.

How To Auto Fill Table A From Table B

Jun 8, 2006

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?

Modules & VBA :: Fill Table Using Another Table

Sep 19, 2013

I have a Table with employees from different departments and I created another form for their daily attendance details.

What i want is - if a director from department x needs to fill in attendance for all his employees, he just select his department from a combo box and all the employees under department x will be listed below and he can update the daily attendance.

This is what i have done so far - I have added a code but here the director will need to select his employees one on one which can be a hassel if he has many employees under his department.

I used below event procedures on date change
Me.TxtLastName.Value = Me.cboOperations.Column(1)
