Text Box Default Date.


Hi Dudes

I have a text box on a form which is formatted as medium date and I want it to default to the Monday of the following week. So for today it should have 07-Mar-05 in the text box.

Can anyone please advise a method for this.

Thanks

Date And Text As Default
I tried searching everywhere and cant seem to find an answer to this one...

Is it possible to have a default value in a table which would be current month and year + text? Eg. mm/yy "text"

=now() & "text"
is fine but I need to format the date to mm/yy and cant seem to get it right.

eg. 08/06 Lease Payments

Also is there a way to do it for previous month, so if processing today it would give 07/06 Lease Payments?

Thanks in advance!

Default Value - Text Or Date? - Yy Or Mm Format
I am hoping someone can help me, a real novice at Access 2000 - I am trying to construct a couple fields in a table, 1 of which will show a default value equal to a 2-digit year (yy) based on the current date. The second will display a default value equal to a two digit month (mm) based on the current date. Text fields would be ideal, but date field could work if it's the only way. Thank you for helping out a newbie.

Default Date In DB
Hi, I want to make a default value for the date when a record is inserted. I don't want to use Now() or Date(), I want to use one that only displays the month eg: "June" and that is all. Any ideas? Many thanks.

Default Value In Text Or Combo Box
I am trying to set the result of a query as the default value for a text or combo box. I have tried setting the query as the default value in the box's property. I have also tried doing it in VB. The code looks like this

Dim SQL AS String

SQL = "SELECT Address
FROM Table1
WHERE Name = Forms!Main_frm!name_lbx.Value;"

Forms!Address_frm!address_cbx.DefaultValue = SQL

I have also tried

Dim SQL AS String

SQL = DoCmd.OpenQuery([update address_qry])

Forms!Address_frm!address_cbx.Value = SQL

Where update address_qry is the same as the above.

I keep both forms. I know how to do it by setting the queries as values in a list box, then transfering the values to the text or combo boxes. But I was hoping there was an easier way.

Thanks
Alex

Default Text In Combo Box
Hi,
I am wondering if this is possible... I have a form that contains various combo boxes. I was wondering if it was possible upon opening the form if there was text in the combo box instead of just an empty space, before even clicking on the combo box. It will be the same text each time, just for display purposes. Any contribution would help, thanks.
Also, if possible I need help with my other thread
http://forums.aspfree.com/t43015/s.html

Thank you in advance.

Date To Default To January 1
I have a little application that includes information about insurance deductables.

Deductables revert to their maximum on a date set by the insurance company, but that is USUALLY January 1.

So, for the control on the form where a new patient is set up, I have a date field where that "revert" date is to be entered.

Since it's usually January 1, I want a default to appear of January 1, of whatever the current year is. I've been looking through the Access help screens as well as this and other forums and have not found anything to suggest how to go about this.

Not being trained as a programmer, I'm coming here asking for some help.

Can anyone give me the appropriate code to generate the default date I want?

Variable Default Data In Text Box
I am working on a database for my boss that stores the results of monthly file audits and generates reports.
Each month about fifty files are checked against a check list and the results are to be entered into the database. Reports are generated quarterly.
I have a date field that holds the date of the review. I would like the default value of this field to be what ever was entered in the previous record. That way this field can be tabbed through until the next month. When the data in the field is changed that will become the new default for the following records.
I don't have any formal VB or VBA training. I just learn what I need for each project and save it for later use.

Thank you for any help you can provide.

Modify Default Values And Text Strings
Hello, I have two newbie questions. First, when I design a checkbox in Form design view, how do I program or script the form so it will enter a "1" value on the corresponding tables database per column. (Just like in the option group design, where a click on each option generates a specific value on the tables database).

Second, how can I design the form where it can accept text strings as input and displays them 'as is' in the corresponding tables database as a text string.

Thanks for looking. :)

Default Values For Columns (Date Related)
Hi,

I want to make the default value of my column "TimeonOW" to be the difference in months(past 12) from the entered date in "OWStartDate" and the current system date.

For for example
mm/dd/yyyy

CurrentDate - OWStartDate = TimeonOW
07/01/2007 - 05/01/2005 = 26

I played around with the DateDiff function but to no avail.
=DateDiff("d",Now(),[OWStartDate])
=DateDiff("d",Now(),#2004-31-12#) etc


The reason behind this is because I need to count how many people fall into different month span categories, maybe theres a better way?

Thanks in advance.

Blank Date Field Default On Query Criteria
Hello.

I have a query that is pulling data based on a date in a table. For some records, that date field is empty. For those records, the data should be pulled based on the date of 1/1/06. I tried doing this
=IIf([Signed SLA Received] Is Null,1/1/06,>=[Signed SLA Received])

It doesn't like this at all, it brings back no data. I also tried putting 1/1/06 in quotes, but it didn't make any difference.

This is probably a totally incorrect way to get this done, but I don't know how else to try it.

Thanks!
Stacey

Default Value For Date/Time In MS ACCESS, Retrieve In Java
What is the proper way to store in a field if I want to store current date AND time as a timestamp. I chose Date/Time as the data type and General Date in the Format. Now I wanted a timestamp whenever a new row is added so I placed =Date() in the default value but it only shows me the date, not the time?

Second question if you know Java: I retrieve this date in a java.sql.date and .toString() shows me the correct result in the default format but when i use the DateFormat.format() method on it, i get a Null Pointer Exception. What could be the problem?

Setting Text Box Default Value Based On Query Version: 2000 (9.0)
I am creating a database that should be fairly simple. The database is for a local racetrack and I'm stuck on how to entering race results. I have four tables: Driver, Rank, Home, Class. The form to enter in the results contains a main form with a subform. On the main form there are two combo boxes, one to select the Class of the race, and one to select the Heat of the race: i.e Finals, 1, 2, 3. The subform currently has a text box containing the rank of the driver for that race and the driver's name. I want the Rank to automatically start at one and increase by one each time a new driver is added. The rank field is part of the primary key but cannot be an autonumber field because there will be multiple ranks in the rank table. The rank table contains a primary key of: Class_ID, Rank, Heat. Therefore, each class/heat combo needs to start at 1 and increase. I created a query that finds the max rank value of the class/heat combo and I thought I could use that value +1 for the default value of the Rank field but I'm not having any luck. I have attached the database so that you can see what I all have as there isn't any sensitive information. If it would be easier doing it some other way than using the query that is fine to. I'm open to anything that works. I also want the Driver combo box in the Rank form to be limited to only contain drivers whose Class_ID matches that of the selected class in the main form. I have the row source set up sot that it works when I make my first selection when entering the form but not when I change the selected class and I do have an After_Update event set for requerying. It seems this should be so simple but I'm just missing something. Thanks in advance for your help!
