"access Denied, Not Allowed In This Context" Error Msg
Sep 21, 2005
I have written an Access (2000) Db that uses the SendObject function to send an email. Works quite happily for my Windows 2000 Op System users, but not on XP machines. XP machines error with message something like "access denies, not available in this context". Any ideas?
I got these three code routines for backing up an Access database file from two different forums. I installed them as is, on a test database, creating command buttons for each. The test database is not password protected. I intend (if I can get one of these working) to install it on simple, single file, password protected databases.The first two came from Access World Forums at: URL....
Function BACKUPS() On Error GoTo Err_BACKUPS Dim fso As Object Dim sSourcePath As String Dim sSourceFile As String Dim sBackupPath As String Dim sBackupFile As String
I got a compile error "Invalid use of property." on the button sub. Then there was a simple On Click sub:
Private Sub Backup_Click() Dim fs Set fs = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject") fs.CopyFile CurrentProject.FullName, "C:", True Set fs = Nothing MsgBox "Database has been backed up successfully" End Sub Private Sub Command32_Click() End Sub
On this one I got a "Permission denied." error on the CopyFile method. As I said before, my database is not password protected.I found this third bit of code on another forum: URL...
Code: Public Function db_Backup() On Error GoTo db_Backup_Err
Dim sourceFile As String, destinationFile As String Dim aFSO As Variant Dim path As String, name As String
On this one I got another "Permission denied." error on the CopyFile method. Again, my database is not password protected. This code had appeared to me to be the most promising of the three.
if a relevant user opened the db. All well and good, except they then wanted to be able to see the Access link in the taskbar (which SW_HIDE doesn't do) - so I changed it to SW_MINIMISE and they were happy again until..They then realised (and it was a surprise to me as well) that the right click context menus used to filter and sort continuous or datasheet forms were no longer available to these users - nor was the context menu for datasheet columns to freeze or hide columns - see attached.
I've experimented with a number of options and these context menus are available if ShowWindowAsync is not called or if called with SW_HIDE, but not for SW_MINIMISED, SW_SHOWMINIMISED, SW_SHOWMINNOACTIVE, SW_SHOWNOACTIVE.
Why the shortcut menus are not available when the Access window is minimised? The requirement being that the context menus are available to all users the Access link appears on the task bar for all users the access window is hidden for some users.I should say that due to hiding/minimising the access window all forms are popup and modal.
We have two computers in a work group. On computer1 I have the back-end and front-end database files in the shared folder and 2 users out of 4 can access the database no problem. When the other users try to access the database they receive the error message "Microsoft Access can't Find The Database 'C:Documents and SettingsAll UsersDocumentsdb.mdb' Make sure you entered the correct path and filename" On computer2 I have the front-end database files in the shared folder and pointing to the same back-end database on computer1. Again 2 users out of 4 can access the database no problem. When the other users try to access the database they receive the same error described above.
I expect that this is some sort of windows permissions issue? There are some clues to this fact .. The two users that can't access the database are limited accounts, but I tried making them administrators and this had no affect. Their shared documents folder does not have a hand underneath it?
Any help on this appreciated as it's really starting to annoy me now!
When a process of some kind is using a file, you can´t access it in anyway, can you?
The reason is we have an application that locks files it is supposed to go to work on (it is a printer, merging two or more pages together before printing). The thing is it is not very stable, and every time it hangs, the pages has to go through the whole process again, even though the files are there.
I´d like to replace the "page 1" file (which is locked waiting for the page 2 file), with a file that was processed earlier. Nothing is being written to the "page 1" file at this point, but it is locked all the same.
How does the system mark a file "access denied"?
I realize I might be in the wrong forum. You´ll forgive me.
Is there a way in a form to have a combo box that causes other fields to show based on the value of the combo box? For example, if there are 3 selections to choose from in that combo box, selecting option 1 causes 5 fields to show up in the form. 5 other fields show up if option 2 is selected, and a different 5 fields for option 3.
I'm trying to track different details for each combo box selection. Right now I have a field for every detail of every option showing, and the form is pretty cluttered. I'm trying to only show the pertinent data.
If it's a built in Access function, that'd be great. If not, and it requires some coding, please know that while I'm very comfortable with computers and have done some programming, I've never done any coding specifically in Access, so I don't even know where to go to edit the code. So if you could point me there, too, I'd appreciate it.
When the input value for m is empty/Null, the response returned in the query is #Error. Problem is, any way I try to test for this in the function, it still returns #Error.The Watch for m reads "<Out of Context>" for these errors. Anyway to test/trap for this within the function itself?
Code: Public Function getAbsoluteMagnitude(m As Double, d As Double, Optional dUnit As String = "Mpc") As Double Dim absoluteMag As Double ' IsError(m) returns False ' IsNull(m) returns False ' IsEmpty(m) returns False
I have a simple log table that I am opening from a button on a form and adding a new record to the table.The table opens bu I get "Permission Denied" as a message - however I can then enter the form and enter data with no problem.why the VBA code cant do the same? what does Permission Denied usually mean?
I have a query that returns a description value depending on the system code provided. One of my codes is '?M' and the ? is crapping out the whole query with Invalid Syntax. How can I get around this and still have the '?M' as criteria? Please advise.:)
Thanks for any guidance, suggestions, and/or answers.
Hello, my problem looks so stupid, but I'm not able to solve it.. I've a form with two subforms in it and one of them is behaving in a strange way. I open the form and type something in a text box in the form. Now I can type something else in a text box in the first subform but I'm not able to write anything in a textbox in subform n°2. It's textboxes (and also other controls like combo,...) look like they are not enabled (but they are enabled!!). This subform has also got a Button, and it works (It deletes current record).
If I close the form and reopen it and I go straight to subform n°2, now I'm able to insert text in it's controls, but I'm not able to edit the controls in the main form and in subform n°1.
I have a table field where Null is not allowed, how do I use a user freindly message to tell the user to add data to this field. When a user tries to leave the field Null (ie by tabbing out), they get a message, "tried to assign NUl value to vaiarble which is not variant datatype.
What I want to appear is more like "Please enter a name" or some other custom message.
Any ideas - I have tried before anfd aftyer update events and vaidation rule on the form field of Not Null, but the underlying message always appears first.
I am on Access 2000. I would like to know how could I define the number of symbols that can be input in a certain field? For example in Home Phone field I would like to be able input more than 30 characters, but database doesn’t let me input more than 16. How can I change that? Thanks a lot. Regards.
The database's core is 3 tables: a table for service trips that students can go on, students who may go on those trips, and a junction table linking the two in a many-to-many relationship. Data entry is done literally from the trip table with a +/- node allowing addition of students to the trip detail table.
About 6 months ago, the user's computer was replaced and their office suite was upgraded from 2003 to 2010. Since then, periodically they have called me to say that they are not being allowed to add students to trips. Checking and discovering that I, accessing the same database from another machine, am able to add students to trips;Compacting and Repairing the databse, which did NOT resolve the issue;Opening a brand new database and importing all the objects into it, which DID resolve the issue, temporarily.I just received an email today stating that it has just happened for the 4th time. I can repeat my above-mentioned fix which will probably resolve the issue - again - temporarily.
I keep on getting this error. The weird part is that I have exactly the same stored procedure but insted of FinancialYear it has a calendar year. So instead of of having something like '2013', it has 'FY2012 - 2013'. The calendar year SP works perfectly, but this does not.

I have had a form working for ages. It has a main form and eight subforms at the bottom of the form. The main form can be edited in all fields.
I have taken a copy, modified the form added new fields to the main source table and updated the query that feeds the form.
Now (in the copy environment) it won't allow me to edit any of the fields. All of the form control properties are the same as the working model (in the live environment) I can run the query by itself and all is OK
There is obviously some little control that I have inadvertently changed and can't see it.
I have a Table with a short text field, field size: 20. The row source has been set up ie "Item 1", "Item 2", "Item 3", etc. Allow multiple values IS allowed.Once I drop a control on a form (list box) to represent the aforementioned field, I realize I can put a checkmark in many items. Why? I add up the total length of the items text at 40-50 characters, yet the field size is only 20. To check my sanity, I open the Table in Datasheet view and lo, I can see all the Items spelled out, in clear violation of field size constraints
How do I put an upper limit on the amount of time allowed in a date/time field?
For example - during a heart procedure a person is exposed to radiation, it will never be more than a total time of 10 minutes. I want to know how much, but I want data integrity so I don't want them to be able to enter more than 10 minutes.
I have a datasheet on a form that is unable to show all records in the size allowed. Consequently it has a vertical scroll bar. However, the scroll bar allows scrolling to the bottom whereby there is white space almost the same size as the data records. The horizontal scroll bar does much the same.
Is it possible to just show the records and only the width of the data in them.? No extra records exist in the table to cause this.
