My Database Doesn't Work Like Before?

Aug 22, 2007

Hello everbody,

I'm sorry if my thread is in wrong section, cause I'm first time on this great forum :(! I hope you'll undrestand me ;)

My problem is with my database for my coffee bar, man who made database is still, and I don't have somebody to repair my database unfourtanetly :(

I formatted my C:, cause I installed new OS Windows XP PR SP2, and everything is deleted, but I save this .mdb file, but I don't have instalation CD for this program, cause man who installed me this database didn't give me instalation file :(!

And I saved this .mdb file, and now I try to run this POS.mdb,I can open "POS KASA" in english POS CASH, and I see articles - (ARTIKLI), and value of them it account values of them, just program doesn't count for me like before "sume" or "total" of EX. one count, for example coca cola 2.5 KM, fanta 2.5 KM = 5 KM, and now he doesn't count sume - total in program total is "UKUPNO", if somebody to know to repair this, or something another what is importing to work this database like before, please help me, database is on bosnian, if you need translating just ask me, cause I don't know to edit this file, and to have access to change words :(!

1'st colone in program interface (bosnian - english)

Sifarnici -something like codes

Artikli = Articles
Ulazi = Inputs
Storno racuna = storno count
Pregled storno racuna = review storno count

2-nd colone in program interface

Dokumenti - Documents

POS kasa = POS cash register
Dnevni promet = daily exchange
Trenutni saldo kase = current saldo of cash register

3-rd colone in program interface

Printanje prometa po broju = Printing exchange by number
Printanje prometa od datuma do datuma = Printing exchange from date to date
Printanje trenutnog prometa = Printing current exchange


Actually for me the most important is POS CASH REGISTER, cause it doesn't count total value of one count , total = ukupno doesn't work, sume doesn't work, and I can't give on my guests count, and I have problem with inspection cause I don't have counts :(, please help me and if you can repair this; IN ADVANCE TNX MUCH!

Greetings to all, from Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegowina!

I'm sorry really on my bad english, and I hope you'll understand me :(!

Why Doesn't This Work ?

Oct 5, 2006

i am trying to run an append query in SQL which appends a calculated value into another table 50 times incrementing the day by one day each time. When I run it it asks me for the parameter [NewDay] each time. It is obviuosly not picking up the variable.

Can anyone tell me why ?

Dim NewDate As Date
Dim n As Integer

For n = 0 To 50

NewDate = Date + n

DoCmd.RunSQL "INSERT INTO InventoryEvolution ( SAP, Stock, [Date] ) SELECT UK_Product_Estimate_Live.[RE SAP Code], ((Sum([Estimate01])+Sum([Estimate02]))/50)*-1 AS Stock, NewDate From UK_Product_Estimate_Live GROUP BY UK_Product_Estimate_Live.[RE SAP Code] HAVING (((UK_Product_Estimate_Live.[RE SAP Code])=513450))"

Next n

Why It Doesn't Work?HELP!!

Sep 14, 2005

Hi all,
I get this error "You tried to execute a query that does not include the specified expression 'SITENAME' as part of an aggregate function."

The query is:

SELECT AS SITENAME, o1.vertical_loc/10000000 AS LAT, o1.horizontal_loc/10000000 AS LON, c.CELLGLID AS CELLID, 'traffic_total' AS Expr1, sum((MEBUSTCH_HR+MEBUSTCH_FR)*period_duration)/sum(period_duration) AS Traffic, 'traffic_hr' AS Expr2, sum(MEBUSTCH_HR*period_duration)/sum(period_duration) AS Traffic_HR
FROM objects AS o1, objects AS o2, c_bts AS c, p_generic_cell AS p
WHERE c.int_id = o2.int_id and
o2.parent_int_id = o1.int_id and
p.bts_int_id = o2.int_id

I know the problem is with the group by clause. In MySQL it just works using "group by p.bts_int_id. I learnt in access i have to include all non-aggregated fields in the group by clause, and that's what I've done!! WHY!!Please help me!!!

Why Doesn't Like Work

Mar 14, 2007


The following what I do not understand:

Set cmd = New ADODB.Command
Set cmd.ActiveConnection = CurrentProject.Connection
cmd.CommandType = adCmdText

cmd.CommandText = "SELECT par1 FROM tblparameters Where tblparameters.gcnf = 'XMLexp' AND ((tblparameters.ccnf) Like 'ExpTijd*')"
Set rec = cmd.Execute()

Do While rec.EOF = False
MsgBox rec("par1").Value

I don't get any result back. If I changed it likt the following:
tblparameters.ccnf = 'ExpTijd1' , in the query, I get one record back.
So my conclusion the query is right but the Like doesn't work in these circumstances?

thanks in advance.

Why Doesn't This Work?

Apr 14, 2005

hi folks,
I am designing an application for an assignment for college, all seems to be going ok except that I have to teach myself access from a book. When I update a record on a form and go to another page it works fine, but if I attempt the same action ( for example creating an appointment then moving to a new form to confirm they have arrived) a second time I am getting an error which tells me I can't save the record. I think it is to do with updating the recordset when the new form is opened. I have an update record button on the form (created by the wizard) but it wont update on the second attempt. Could someone please tell me the code to update a recordset on the formload procedure. Ive tried me.recordset.refresh and me.recordset.requery but I still can't solve the error. Please help I've got to hand this assignment in in 2 weeks. thanks in advance

Copied MDW Doesn't Work

Jun 14, 2007

Hi! I'm relatively new to Access (2003) . I had to modify a shared network app so I copied it off and renamed it, made my mods and everything is fine. I then went to another app that connects to the original app to obtain data for display and synchronization, modified the call to open the new app including the new mdw. When it hits the new mdw, it can't open it because it says it's being used exclusively or the workgroup file is missing. It's not being used exclusively and it doesn't appear to be missing. The network path is correct. If I use the mdw from the original source app, it works fine. Please advise! :(

DoCmd.TransferDatabase Doesn't Work

Dec 5, 2007

I have an Access 2003 database which is soon going to run out of space when we hit the 2Gb limit for the linked MDB that holds our biggest table of 2.5 million records.

So, management decided that we had to migrate the table to linked-Oracle - however, the performance of the large queries that depend on this Oracle linked table is abominable - they take up to 15 times as long to return as when using an internal Access table - hours instead of minutes.

So management have decided to migrate the whole application to Oracle - but in the meantime until this new system goes live, I have to make a cut-down version of the original Access table with only the fields necessary for the queries that are slow under Oracle, and populate it from the Oracle table as a kind of cache. This also saves relinking all the other databases and spreadsheets that refer to the original Access table.

However, there seems to be no way that Access can get these records without taking a ridiculously long time, or raising errors that are so STUPID that it implies Microsoft didn't bother testing the Access Import methods (probably programmed by an intern) before releasing the product.

PLEASE can anybody help?


Here are the methods I have tried:-


DoCmd.TransferDatabase acImport, "ODBC Database", "ODBC;DSN={DSN as shown in ODBC Administrator};UID={uid};PWD={password};" & "DATABASE={Oracle Service name}", acTable, "{Oracle Table Name}", "tbl_ORACLE"

First, it returned the following error, as I hadn't created a target table (I thought it would auto-create one with the correct schema):-

"The Microsoft Jet database engine could not find the object 'tbl_ORACLE'. Make sure the object exists and that you spell its name and the path name correctly."

So, I used Copy/Paste (structure only) to make a blank target table 'tbl_ORACLE' with exactly the same schema as my linked Oracle source table. It then gave this error:-

"The Microsoft Jet database engine could not find the object 'tbl_ORACLE1'. Make sure the object exists and that you spell its name and the path name correctly."

So, it's added a "1" on the end of the name of the table I explicitly supplied ... and then said it couldn't find it!!! So, I created a copy table named 'tbl_ORACLE1' - it then said it couldn't find 'tbl_ORACLE2' !!!


I tried writing a simple SELECT...INTO statement, where I insert the linked-Oracle fields that I want to keep into the blank target Access table. 14 hours later overnight, and it still hadn't finished!!!


The Oracle programmers also have the data in a text flat-file format, so I tried importing using the

DoCmd.TransferText acImportDelim, "ORACLE_Import_Spec", ...

method, which works if the flat-file is empty apart from field definitions.

However, if there is any data in the Oracle flat-file, Access returns inexplicable "Numeric Overflow" errors (with no helpful debug text like row number, field name, etc) if there are any non-skipped numeric or date fields in the Import Spec - despite my spending about 2 working days trying all possible variations of datatypes in the Access Import Specification dialog.


In desperation, I decided to try loading the data the hard way, using LINE INPUT to get each line in turn from the flat-file and rs.AddNew, etc, to add the records one-by-one to the Access table.

However, since Microsoft didn't bother putting an optional "input date format" parameter on the CDate() function, I have to use the Format() function to convert the entirely normal "YYYYMMDD HH:MM:SS" date format in the flat-file to something that Access can understand with no possibility of confusing US (MM/DD) and non-US (DD/MM) date parameter orders.

So, I hit the bug in the Format() function where it always returns "Jan" regardless of what month you supply. Try this:-

Debug.Print format("09", "MMM")

or with any month you like instead of the "09".

Likewise, the other bug in the Format() function where it returns random dates. Try this:-

Debug.Print format("0109", "DDMMM")

You won't get 9th Jan or 1st Sept...

Two Queries Almost Identical Except One Doesn't Work

Nov 23, 2006

I have an access 2003 database which holds data for lorry loads of timber delivered to different places at different prices and by different hauliers who get paid different ammounts.

I have tables that hold the prices for both haulage (sorted by the delivery location and haulier) and product price (sorted by the delivery location and the haulier.

I have two almost identical queries which give the haulage price for a particular load and the product price for a particular load.

Only the haulage prices seem to be returned - i have checked the settings and relationships in each of the tables invlovled and they appear to be that same.

Why would one query return the value and the other not???

Hyperlink To PDF Doesn't Work With Acrobat 7?

Feb 9, 2005


I am currently on maternity leave and trying to troubleshoot this from home, so I hope I've got all the details right!

Our form, which shows details of a specific document, contains a hyperlink field into which we insert a link to the PDF file of that document...then we can just click the link to open the PDF. We've never had a problem with this. However, since I left, the office has upgraded to Acrobat 7 and the links no longer work. Apparently when you click on the link it looks like Acrobat just opens and closes immediately. They are using Access 2003.

Anyone have any experience with this, or any suggestions on what to try? I'm not even sure where to start.

Formula Doesn't Work When Copying Dbs

Feb 13, 2006

I have created a new inventory db based on our old one. It looks very similar with a few minor changes. In the old db, there was a formula in the subform that calculated the # purchased minus # used. In the main form, the Units in Stock referenced this formula.

I copied the formula exactly for the new db, but it doesn't seem to want to work. I can't see any vb code attached to the formula. This is frustrating. I'm also wondering if it's because they used an access template to create the old db, and I am doing the new one from scratch.

Can someone help or would be willing to look at the old and new db. I have eliminated most of the data... only a few things left in inventory to help guide me with the formulas, etc. The form in the old db is Products and Products subform. The form on the new db is frmProductEntry and subfrmTransactionDetails.

I would appreciate any help possible. We want to get started entering our real data. Thanks.

Searching By Date Doesn't Work

May 11, 2006

I have a table called tblorders for orders. So I have a form for this, frmOrders.

I also have a form to perform various searches on the orders. So I have a date textbox on this search form and a command button which I want to open the frmOrders according to the date I enter in the textbox. But even though the date on the search form matches the date in tblorders it does open the relevant record??!!

The date textbox is linked to the date field in the tblorders but it doesn't recognise it even if the date is correct! Everything is set to Format: Short date

Any ideas? This system works for other things like serial number etc but not the date for some reason.

When I press the button I get no error, but no data is added to the

Form Suddenly Doesn't Work

Aug 26, 2004

I have a form that worked when I left work Tuesday. It is supposed to look at all the information in my "courses" table in descending order by year, ascending order by date, in edit mode. There is also a look-up list that allows me to select the date of the course and jump to that record.

I came in today and it doesn't work! The form LOOKS like it's in add mode--completely empty. the data is still in the table. I checked all the properties and they all look right. The query still looks like it did when I left. It just quit! When I use the look-up list the dates appear in the list, but nothing happens when I select it.

I know I'm not giving you much to go on, but any ideas?

Table Validation Rule Doesn't Work...

Jan 28, 2005

Hello, all.

I have a table that contains a field (list) for categories [Inquiry Type], and a field that tracks category of any follow-ups [FU Inquiry Type].

The rule is: If [Inquiry Type]="F", than [FU Inquiry Type] Is not null.

For some reason, when I'm entering data, the validation rule does not take any effect....does not notice when [FU Inquiry Type] - which is also a list box - remains empty when [Inquiry Type] is an F.

I have entered the rule this way in the table property validation rule field:

(([Inquiry Type]="F" AND [FU Inquiry Type] Is Not Null) OR ([FU Inquiry Type] Is Null)

I already have data in this table, but have ensured that it conforms to the above rule. Can anyone help?

Error Handling When LostFocus Doesn't Work

Jun 7, 2006

Hi, hope somebody can help with this problem.

I have a med-large db shared on network. Am under some pressure to split front/back so more people can do data entry, but want the forms to be semi-finished before putting them on everybody's c:drive.

The problem is error handling for required fields. Some fields are required in the underlying tables because if users don't fill them in, reports are useless. But Access error msg for required fields are too strange, users just close down, maybe wrecking the thing. Don't want to eliminate Close button yet in case they get stuck in Access hell.

I got one ( !! ) field locked in well using LostFocus event, but what do you do if users just mouse into fields at random? LostFocus won't work if it never had focus, right?

(Would much prefer to just use unbound form and give choice of "Field is required" and "OK" or "Cancel this record" but realize that's asking for a lot of help here.)

Any assistance you can offer would be MUCH appreciated!! Vba course isn't until July.

Modules & VBA :: Why Does Emailing A PDF Work But Saving A PDF Doesn't
