Vacation Calendar

Oct 20, 2006


I was wondering if there was a way to make a calendar in Access 2003? I work in a group of 60 employees and we track their vacation, and personal days in a web-based application. The web-based application is going away, as it it no longer supported. Could I use Access to create a calendar for the 60 employees and have it require a user name and password for them to log into the database to look at what vacation they have?

Would Visual Basic or C++ be a better program for this?

Vacation Scheduler

Dec 4, 2007

There are some ideas floating around these forums on "booking" databases and whatnot, but I have a bit of a different twist with what I am trying to accomplish.

I am trying to develop at database that will allow users to log in and schedule their vacations. I have 2 tables at the moment tblEmployees and tblVacations. In the tblEmployees table you have:

EmployeeID (autonumber)
EmployeeName (text)
HireDate (date)
weekseligible (text)

the weekseligible field will be entered manually and be between 3 to 6 weeks of total possible vacation weeks.

The tblVacations has the following fields:

ID (autonumber)
weekofyear (date field with week starting sunday for all 52 weeks)

Only 4 people can take vacation any one week of the year. The vacation fields will be combo boxes where an employee can select their name from a query based on the employees table.

What i need to happen is to prevent someone from scheduling more weeks than their weeks eligible - I have no idea how to do this. My guess is there should be someway to do this using queries and somesort of a count function, but I am having a hard time getting started.

any help is greatly appreciated.

Thank You!

Changing Hours From Daily To Weekly To Accumulate Vacation?

May 21, 2012

I am building an attendance database. The attendance data will be inputted at a daily level. That is working fine and the hours are calculating correctly. The next thing I need to do is create a Table (maybe) that will show the total hours worked in a week. The purpose of this, and the reason I don't want a report, is that the employee will accumulate vacation based upon the numbers of hours worked per week. I will want to be able to show a running total on the vacation, and will eventually create something to allow them to deduct from those vacation hours when they are used.

I have a form called subfrm_vactions

rowsource is a query called qryVacations

the query should calculated two things

1 - the difference between start_vac and End_vac in days to calculate the vacation period and put the value in field called Period (working well)

2-the work days which the period between the last day in Previous record (End_Vac) and the (Start_Vac) in the next record (didn't work)

the result is the difference between (End_Vac) and (Start_Vac) in the same record which i don't want

simply i want to calculate the work days.

The Dreaded "Vacation Accrual" Queston.

Jun 5, 2006

Please bear with me.

I'm fairly new to access, and have learned much in the past three weeks I've been "learning" how to use it.

I was simply sick of the process that was going on at my place of business where I'm a Manager (I've been there for about 3 months). We keep about 10 Excel forms for the different pieces of information (production numbers and such) we keep for each individual in the department. There are 115 people, 3 shifts working 24 hours a day. Each morning I would go in and open each excel file to analyze what happened the day before.

We're also tracking an individual's days off, tardiness, quality... you name it.

I finally decided it was time for a database... I had worked with them in the past, but I had never actually "built" one. I've actually knocked out a significant portion of what needs to be done, and I'm proud of my product thus far... except for one thing:

Vacation accrual is "kicking my posterior"!

I've searched these forums (finding some answers, most of which I don't understand), but I almost need to be handed the answers. My other struggles I've overcome with the help of these very forums and Google.

I'll lay out our policy and what I need and hopefully someone can help me. As I learn access (and I will!), maybe one day I could come back here and help someone else that may be in need.

Our policy is as follows:

90 Days to be eligible for accrual.

1-3 years of service - 6.67 Hours a Month (10 Day a year or 80 Work Hours... all the same, and whichever makes things easier)
4-7 years of service 10 hours a month (same deal as above as 15 days or 120 work hours)
+8 years -13.33 hours a month (blah blah)

The hours do NOT carry over, they are all use it or lose it. I can make manual entries when necessary, so it doesn't have to be all "automatic".

Like I said, the searching I've done has come up with some things, but not in the language I yet understand. I do know "modules" and some expressions, but the more that could be "spelled out" the better.

I've got your (what I consider) normal Employee fields, and would like to use something like "DateStarted" as a beginning point, but I'm open to anything.

Thank you VERY much in advance for any help that can be given. This has stalled my project almost a week trying to figure out a solution!

Using an activeX calendar. I have 2 questions.

1) Is it possible to have certain dates always highlighted in the calendar so the user can clearly see these dates. What I'm looking for specifically is to have each second thursday always highlighted with another color.

2) Using a seperate form and calendar than the one above, how would I go about using a calendar to search for old records (apply a query to it maybe, but how would I do that?) so that when I click on a date, the records for that specific date are opened.

I really appreciate any help that anyone can offer with either question. If you leave an answer in code, can you please clearly define what you named each item that I may need to replace, i.e. Calendar, Date, etc., because I'm not incredibly familar with using code.

Thanks in advance for the help, I will be able to respond quickly if you have any questions or if I didn't explain anything clearly.

Pop Up Calendar - How?

Sep 28, 2005


I have seen pop up calendars in use in other databases and wondered if it was possible to put one into my current DB. (The standard little Microsoft style one).

Rather than using a direct entry date field in my form how do I go about adding in a pop up calendar. Can this be done easily?

Calendar Format On DAP?

Aug 3, 2005


I've created a database to keep track of schedules, and have created a report that displays like a calendar.

Similar to Pat's example here

What I would like to do now, is create a DAP that will display in a similar format. But because the report uses subreports, it doesn't just tranfer over.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to create a simlar calendar format, within a DAP?

We want to use this on our intranet, so everyone can see each others schedules, and this is the only thing left I have to do. I just can't seem to get anything to work.

Calendar In Access

Sep 27, 2006

Trying to add to my DB. Looking to be able to keep track of time worked on stock parts on a weekly basis. Would like to be able to enter time at the end of the week, by week. IE; On the week of Sept 10th 29 hours were dedicated to restocking our shelves with stock parts. Is there an easy way to accomplish a calendar setup like this, as I seem top be over complicating the issue I think. If someone could point me in the basic direction on this that would be great.

Calendar On A Form

Oct 13, 2006

I have been trying to find a calendar that I can put on a form to set up reminders, notes, and other things. I have had no luck finding such a thing.
I tried using Calendar Control 9.0, but that will not work for my needs.

If anyone knows where I can get a calendar like this, or if there is some sort of code that will make this happen, please let me know.

Thanks in advance,

"On The Bayou"
