Can A Refresh Button On A Form Remove The Current Filter.
Mar 5, 2006
hi, i have a search form, and when you double click on the record, it opens that record in my main form (which opens filtered)
this is fine because it displays the record that i want to see
however, when i try to perform other tasks on my main form, such as choosing the id from a combo box and finding that record, it wont work because the form is still filtered, one way to get around this is to open and close the form, but is there a way that i can implement something into my refresh button that removes a form filter.
Private Sub Refresh_Page_Click()
On Error GoTo Err_Refresh_Page_Click
I have a form that opens with a filter on depending on what the user is supposed to see. When I deploy this, I don't want them to see the "toggle filter" button at the top. I tried making a custom ribbon like this:
But it didn't seem to have any effect. When I applied it, it didn't even create "A Custom Tab". That might be because I have disabled everything that I could disable on the "Current database" options, I'm not sure.
I have a database For customers of the company, when you open the main form through the search form , there are a filter . when you try to move between orders of this customer, there are a mssage (Asking you to approve of movement between the customer orders). to this point no problem, when you approval to move , cancel the filter on the main form with a stay at the current record (current customer).
I have searched the forms and I see codes to apply filters to a button, but can someone tell me what is the code to remove all filters on the current form? I know I can always hit the filter on/off button at the top but im trying to keep users from having to leave the current database form. THANKS IN ADVANCE!
When opened it displays all records (no selection yet).
I put would like to put 2 buttons to filter records (Male/Female).
I'm thinking of 2 possible options:
1-on click run a script that will close current form, then reopen it with selection criteria 2-directly apply a filter on the current form that would automatically refresh itself with the right records
Another (heavy, inelegant?) solution would be to create duplicates of this form. they would be loaded from separate queries that select the right records in either choice.
So I have been developing a database tool that needs to have multiple ways of filtering data. I wanted to be able to display the data nicely so I'm using a split form.
As usual, there is an easy to read form on the top half and a datasheet on the bottom half. On one side of the form half I have some comboboxes that are associated with fields in the datasheet. The comboboxes apply multiple filters, narrowing the search results down. It all works fine.
However, I've been trying to figure out a way to remove just one filter at a time. There is a button to the right of each combobox that is intended to clear just one filter.
So far this is what I have. This code clears all filters.
Code: Function removeFilter(source As String, combo As ComboBox)
'source is the field being filtered and combo is the current 'value of the combobox
With Forms("PART_QUERY") .Filter = "[" & source & "] = " & Chr(34) & combo & Chr(34) .FilterOn = False End With
I had some success using another method with select statements. Every time I cleared a filter, I would also check every other combobox to see if they were not null, then reapply each one of there filters. That seems way over complicated. I'm sure I'm missing something.
How do I remove one, specific filter from a split form, after I have applied many different filters?
Form 1 - Data entry for a new project Form 2 - Data entry for a task associated with the project in the Form 1
Button on form 1 that opens Form 2.
What I am trying to do:
Use a combobox on Form Two to choose the Project entered into Form 1, so I can capture the Form1 PK as a FK on Form 2.
Here is the problem:
Refreshing the record on the button click so that the new option entered into Form 1 shows up in the combo box on Form 2.
Full disclosure: I'm not much good at VBA so I have been trying to do this by customizing the button macro. I have tried Refresh, and Requery, but I can't seem to get it to update the list in the combo box.
1. How can I get this accomplished? 2. Is there a better way to get this data into the table than what I am trying to do?
How can I create a "Filter Button" on a form and filter my records? I create a textbox on a form and a filter button on the right. Then I click the filter futton, the filter function will search/match the content in the box through the datasheet. And then the results of the filtering will be pop up on the split form datasheet.
When I click the filter button I get a blank message box titled 'Microsoft Access" and an OK button, when closed the filter works perfectly.I have checked this procedure in other forms and it works without showing the blank message box.The only difference with this form is that its control source is a union query.
Im trying to set up a button on that form that will look at a current file lets say sex: male and it will filter all of the records by that criteria. Can someone point me in the right direction. Any help would be appreciated!
I've built a basic inventory management system that allows a business to add products and the ingredients (and labour etc.) that go into them so they can work out costs and profit.We've run into a bit of a usability problem in the sense that they have 700 different ingredients and so adding them to products has become a little unwieldy as the lists in the comboboxs are massive.
What they've asked me to do is to add a filter combobox to the Ingredients subform of their New Product page that allows them to constrain the Ingredients by type, to make the lists more manageable. So if you imagine they are entering a record for a new cake and need to add Eggs as an ingredient they could either...
a) Scroll through the list of 700 ingredients as they do currently and find "Size 3 chicken egg".
b) Use a combobox on the ingredient row to pick "Eggs" which would in turn filter the ingredients combobox on that row from 700 ingredients down to a handful e.g."Size 1 chicken egg", "Size 2 chicken egg", "Size 3 chicken egg", "Size 1 duck egg" etc.
the filter combobox applies to all rows in the subform! Is there a clever way of telling the Filter to only apply itself to the current row of the continuous form?My code is...
Code: Private Sub FilterRMs() Dim mySql As String If Me.RMTypeFilter.Column(1) = "999" Then Me.FilterOn = False
I am trying to figure out to have the current date populate in table field by using a button on a form and not having much luck.
I have a table with 2 date fields, a 'created' field and a 'received' field. I already have the date set to auto populate for the 'created' field but I don't want the 'received' field to populate until the employee has gone into the database to receive the work.
I know I could have the employee just enter the date, but i want to avoid any typos or people simply forgetting to do it.
Ideally I would love the button to enter the current date into the 'received' field and save the entry, but I fine it needs to be 2 seperate buttons.
I have a form which contains one subform. On the subform I have a command button which saves the record just entered. On the main form I have a "refresh form data" button which updates the main form so that the calculated controls can show the correct results based on the data just entered?
Can anyone tell me how I can get the "save record" button in the subform to subsequently refresh the data in the main form as well, thus saving a button???
I have a form and I have placed a "Filter by form" button in it. Now I would like to create a second button that applies the filter (same funtions as the funnel icon on the toolbar. I tried using a macro with a command but when I click the first button and the form is ready to accept my criteria for the filter both button are greyed out. The only way I could apply the filter is through the toolbar. Any way of doing this second button?
I have a form that when a user fills out the information and select a submit button. It brings up that record in reports in print preview for them to print. The issue i am having when the user enter the information, the report does not show any data until i refresh it. I tried include me.refresh,etc. No luck. I attached the code to make things simpler.
Private Sub Form_BeforeUpdate(Cancel As Integer) If Me.Dirty Then If MsgBox("Do you want to Submit this Contract Form? Clicking No will DELETE ALL ENTERIES,and Log You Off", vbYesNo, "CONTRACT FORM") = vbNo Then Me.Undo Cancel = True Else If MsgBox("PRINT FORM", vbOKOnly, "CONTRACT PRINT") = vbOK Then DoCmd.OpenReport "rpt_Contracts_Main", acViewReport, , "[CONTRACT_ID]=" & Me!CONTRACT_ID End If End If End If End Sub
The reports comes up, but i have to manually refresh it to show the data that was enter.
Hi, I am trying to find code that will let me put a command button on a search form. When it is clicked I want the command filter by selection to filter the records. Basically copying the command when you click the button on the toolbar :rolleyes:
I am trying to put a button on a form I have created so that I can use Filter by Form feature on it. I used the toolbox commnad button wizard and chose the Form Operations -> Apply Form Filter option for the button.
Unfortunately, this button does not work for this choice. In the Form view, if I click on this button nothing happens. Other choices in the wizard such as Edit Form Filter etc works.
Does anyone know what could be the problem? Is this an Access bug (i am using Access 2003).
If it is a bug, can anyone suggest what little modifications one might have to do to the VBA code underlying OnClick event for the button to make this command button work?
Hi, I'm an Access newbie. I've designed a fairly simple database to replace an old spreadsheet that was becoming unwieldy -- it was never really used so much for calculation as for data storage, so Access seems more appropriate anyway.
One of the functions I used in Excel was the autofilter, which I found very useful for zeroing in on specific portions of the data. I was wondering how I would do the same thing in Access, and then I discovered the "Filter by Form", which works just fine -- even better actually, since it has the whole and/or functionality.
I was wondering though if it would be possible to invoke "Filter by Form" using a command button. That would make it even easier, especially for some of my users who would almost certainly not know about "Filter by Form" otherwise.
I have this code set to a button on a split form. It filters out all the blank records for the "Status" column.
Private Sub cmdFilterPendingStatus_Click() Me.Filter = "[Status]" Me.FilterOn = True Me.Requery Me.txtFilterNamePlate.SetFocus End Sub
I would like to do the exact opposite and filter out everything except for the blank records in the "Status" column.
How can I change the code to do this? I guess I should also mention that the "Status" field is a long text/memo box but I can easily change this to short text if I really have to. I realize that short text can do the blank filtering within the split form itself by clicking on that tiny arrow in the column header but I am trying to make it really user friendly where the user can just click a button to do this. The long text box has some options to filter but not for blank fields in a record which makes me think that this may not be possible to do if the Status field remains a long text box. Some examples for the filtering options that are available in the split form for a long text box are: Begins with, contains, ends with, etc... however, when I type "" to try and filter out everything except the records that have null in the Status field, it says that "" is not valid.
I am trying to create a form with control buttons on the form for all the letters of the alphabet. When a user clicks on the button for A, I would like them to only see records that starts with an "A". I assume that I should apply an event to the button's OnClick-property, with a filter, but I can't seem to get it right...any suggestions would be very much appreciated!
Every Page has its on data source based on query, and they aren't related to Parent form or to each other. I want to set few buttons on every Page which would filter records in predefined way.Ex: one page has calculated field named [Za platiti]. It has numeric values form 0 up. I want to set one button to filter only records where field [Za platiti] is greater then 0, and other butt to filter only records where [Za platiti] is = 0. Other filters based on combo box I use regularly.
I made a menu using option buttons and it works well except for one thing: After I return from a form or report to the menu, the option button has not cleared. I added a refresh button that works, but the clearing of the option button should be automatic. How can this be done?
