Use An Option Button On A Form To Select An Alternate Input Mask

Sep 25, 2006

I can create a customized Input Mask, however there are two possible structures that the data may take. I think that this should be doable by the use of two fields, if it can be done with one field it would be preferable for searching options. If I have to use two fields there would only be one or the other used for each record so I would prefer to have the unused field inhibited. Either way the code work is beyond my present ability, any assistance would be appreciated.

Input Mask, Validation Rule, Search Form

Dec 1, 2005

I have a form that acts as a filter/search engine -- it inputs criteria into a query, then opens a report based on the criteria/query. One of the criteria options is "Supplier Number", which is to be entered into an unbound text box.

All of our suppliers have 10 digits, usually in this format: A123400000 (i.e. First character is either a Letter or digit, followed by four or five digits, then followed by four or five zeros)

Our system works with ten digit numbers, while the people in the dept are used to just typing in "A1234" assuming the zeros are irrelevant.

How do I create a validation rule or input mask where a user can simply type "A1234", then it will return zeros for the remaining of the ten required characters?

I realize the usual response to these type of simple question is "Search the Threads", but I have done so already and still don't have an answer!

Select Option Group Option Based On Checkbox Value

Aug 22, 2005

Hi

I've got an Option Group with 3 options; Yes, No and Future.

I also have a range of Check Boxes; 1 for every day of the week.

When one of the check boxes is selected I want the Option Group to change to Yes.

Currently, the Option Group defaults to Future and No will only be available by manually selecting it. This doesn't need to be changed.

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

Cheers

Input Mask Maybe

Sep 15, 2005

What I have is field called contract number, and its entered as 09-0011, which is ok.

Now I like it to show up in a different field as 090011. I guess my first question can this be done. Or even better how would I do it?

Now your question is. Why don't you put it in correctly the first time, and the answer is we want the number to have a dash.

Any suggestions

Never can be easy for me.

Input Mask

Jan 31, 2005

let's say i have a field, in which i store and identity card number. This number may consist up to 7 digits (of which 3 are mandatory) plus 1 letter (mandatory) at the end. Thus a valid identity card number may be the following: 1234567M, 123M

Eventually, since the field must always contain a letter, i set the data type to Text with field size of 8 ... and i set the inout mask as follows:

9999000L (since the first 4 digits are mandatory). With this input mask, if i have an ID Number of 123M, i have to input it as 0000123M.

Although, I would like to have the leading zeros, is it possible that during data entry time, i would simply type 123M, and i will get the zeros automatically, after the field loses the focus, rather than having to type them myself ?

Thank You

Input Mask Help

Sep 2, 2007

I am trying to create an input mask for a name field. I have Spanish names with two last names separated by a hyphen, a comma after the two last names, a space, and then the First Name a space and the Middle Name. The First Last Name needs to be in all capitals like the example. Example: NARANJO-Ramirez, Jose Luis

Can someone please help me format this mask. One trick is that there aren't always middle names. Since all parts of the name are different lenghts for everybody, I need to have an optional number of characters for each of the four parts of the name.

Thanks for your help.

Is there a way that when the user clicks in the box that the cursor will go to the start of the box. At present it goes wherever they click in the box. If they dont notice then the machine starts beeping at them, most annoying!

Input Mask HELP!!!!

May 2, 2005

I have created an input mask but it depends what type of currency is..

If Me![Currency Counter] = "1" Then
Me![Serial No].InputMask = "LL00 000000"
Else
If Me![Currency Counter] = "2" Then
Me![Serial No].InputMask = "LL-00000000-L"
endif
endif

The problem is that if for example the currency counter = 2 the serial must be
AA-11111111-A but it is saving AA1111111A and i dont want it to save it like this.

Any help pls...

Input Mask For Importing

Feb 25, 2005

I have a table that I copy into daily from a shared Excel spreadsheet. I am trying to minimize the amount of touching up the data needs. What input mask should I use so that a field with four numbers...1234 (for example) will be converted to a nine-digit number with leading zeros (000001234) when the data is imported. I would like the nine-digit number to be saved.

Also, is there a way to have a date field import the date only & ignore any text?

Input Mask / Format

May 19, 2005

Hiya everyone,
I'm try to do a database for items with part numbers.
& I want to be able to set the field to only accept data which has two letters at the begining, but any other characters after that (no fixed size).

ie.
part num1: pn047589sdf8m3
part num2: pn6583
part num3: pnfdgmj5973m
part num4: pn-fdgmj-5973m

Is this possible to do?

Cos all I can do at the moment, is to put a fixed number of characters.
ie. is the field size is 30characters
then I'd have to do this:
>LLCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCC

but this isn't good.

I just need something like:
>LL*

* mean any character for as many characters in length.

Input Mask Problem

Jan 2, 2008

I have a number field that has three groups of 3 numbers: 123 456 789 or 12 345 678 (8 numbers). When there are only 8 numbers I need to have the first group of number contain 2 numbers and the other two groups to have the other six numbers. If my input mask filled from the right it would solve my problem if the mask was 900 000 000 (filled from the right) but I can't seem to figure this out. Your help is greatly appreciated.

Multiple Input Mask

Feb 25, 2008

Hi,

Can anyone tell me how I can format my access tables with multiple input masks under one field?

In my table I have formatted my telephone numbers so that they read (xxx) xxx-xxxx which suits our predominantly UK based business telephone numbers, however we also have a lot of Irish numbers which follow a different configuration e.g. (xxxxx) xxxx-xxxx - how can I add this second input mask so that both formats are recognised within the same column/ field?

Many thanks

Aug 24, 2005

Is it possible to set up an input mask for a form for a surname field so that names will show first letter of name as a capital (easy), as in Smith - but for names like O'Connor, show the first and second letters as capitals? (and, of course, allow the ' to be entered).
Thanks.

Input Mask Under Various Conditions

Nov 30, 2005

Greetings,

I am a little stumped in logic again

What I am trying to do is the following

If the value is on field is say "OA" then I need an input code of LL0000 or LL00000 in the next field
If the value is say "OT" then I need an input code of LL etc

What is the best way of going about this.

The code is for stock locations in a warehouse.
