I am having a problem with 3 pc's attached to our network but at a different campus. They have been complaining that the Snapshot Views of reports they are running are stopping the print queue by asking to load paper type 'bond' to the printer. I have checked the Snapshot Viewer printer settings on thoses machines and indeed they are defaulting to 'paper type - bond'. Setting the paper type to Plain or Unspecified will only print on that type for that instance. Is there anywhere to set the default paper type, i cannot find anything!!
I can not get my Access Report to give me a total number of pages by group. I've been able to have it give the correct page number per group but not the total number of pages in each group. I've looked at the threads and it appears that in order to get this, you must do a 2 part pass. 1st to get the page number and then to get the total papers per group.
I've used the code supplied and when I do a print preview, I get the message that it can not find the control, Me!ctlGrpPages. This is the control I created and placed in my page footer section of the report. I've also seen numerous references to the report, "Employee Sales by Country" in the Northwind database. I downloaded the database but could not find this report in the database.
To set the default values for controls, select the control on the tool bar and press F4. The default value properties list will appear. I like to turn off all of the 3D stuff by resetting some the values like 'Special Effect', 'Border Style', etc. This way I don't have to manually change them after the fact...
Thanks Ken have done this - however when I go off and word with a differant mdb file then come back to the original which I had open when I entered the defaults - the defaults have disappeared.
i have set up option groups (using the wizard) with Yes=1, No = 2 and N/A =3 with the default set to 3. After creating the option groups the default does not default even though the properties box clearly shows the default being set to 3 - can anyone suggest why this would be?
I have combo boxes that have all been created using the wizard with the options Yes, No and Not Applicable. There is no default set but they default to the second entered option ("No") every time. I have created the form a second time in the hope this would do something but to no avail. Any ideas??
Does anyone know how to change a field FORMAT default? I am creating lots of tables with lots of number format fields. I don't, however, want a zero default value (or any default value for that matter) for all of these fields. I can go in and delete them manually, but that seems like a backward way of doing things. Does anyone know how to elimate that default value from the format of a number field in general?
I created a small database with a user login form, along with a password reset form. Running it in my sandbox as an accdr file, the password value resets just fine, but on my test machine with the Access 2010 runtime installed, the password reset form doesn't reset the password. I will try to describe the state of things as of this point.
1. The LoginF presents with a combo box for the user to choose their name, and a text box to enter their password. The code below is on the After Update of the password text box.
Code: Private Sub txtPassword_AfterUpdate() 'Check if user has been chosen If IsNull(Me.cboUser) Then MsgBox "Please Select User Initials", vbInformation, "Warning"
2. The password reset form has two text boxes for the new password and to re-enter the same, as well as a command button with this code.
Code: Private Sub cmdResetPassword_Click() If Me.Password = Me.PasswordTest And Len(Me.Password) & "" > 0 Then DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdSaveRecord DoCmd.Close DoCmd.OpenForm "LoginF"
As I say, this works as an accdr file, but not in the actual runtime environment.
I am wondering if it is possible using VBA to update using either an option group or check boxes as shown in the frmDefaultValue in the attached file to update two tables tblLabelNumber and tblMediaType.
The form frmMedia contains two combo boxes. I am trying to use the form frmDefaultValue with an option group and check boxes as shown as not sure what is the best method here to update the values in the two table tblLabelNumber & tblMediaType at the push of a button Update as in the form?
My combobox is not working correctly. When I select one of the dropdown items in the combobox it always defaults to the 1st item on the list. I want to be able to select any of the dropdown items on the list.
I have a Form that links to a List Box which pulls from a combined (concatenated?) list. The list it is pulling from appears as follows: SELECT [Rank]+" "+[Last Name]+", "+[First Name] AS Expr1 FROM [T_Personnel Information]; My issue is that the Field in the Form that pulls from the Field in the Table defaults to the first name on the list when left blank, where as I want it to default to a blank value unless I select a name from the list.
Ive written a program in .net and am currently using an access db as the backend. In the db I had 200 test records which i deleted to get the db ready for deployment. When i add a new record now the primary key on my "booking" table carries on from the old test number so 201.
Can I resest this so it starts back at #1 as once the db gets updated, the program i wrote then takes the data and updates the accounting system and uses the primary key as the invoice number and so I would like to start at 1.
I have an inventory split database. It has been working fine. I noticed when I try to enter a new record, it will not let me as it would create a duplicate record. It has actually started to use the autonumbers in the pk again reusing numbers that already exist starting at 1 and moving up sequentially.
How can I make it continue from where it left off or at least not duplicate any of the existing records. This database has many tables with a bunch of relationships. Thanks! Bill Hesson :confused:
just a small question. I have a database that assigns a unique 'audit id' to each entry. the ID is in the form of : DEA-[client prefix]-autonumber. Everything is working fine except the autonumber part. I have gaps in the numeric sequence. Ex: DEA-AAA-1, DEA-AAA-2, DEA-AAA-8, DEA-ABC17, etc.
is there a way that I can reset this autonumber so that it may look like this: Ex: DEA-AAA-1, DEA-AAA-2, DEA-AAA-3, DEA-ABC4, etc.
Insured patients have deductables and copays that usually reset on January 1st.
To be clear, a deductable of $500 is reduced each time the patient pays, but jumps back to $500 at the beginning of the next year.
The table containing patient records has a deductable field, where the form gets the initial value. I'll be making a running calculation of how much remains after each visit, but that calculation has to start over again each year.
Can anyone suggest code to do this or point me at something similar?
