Ms Access Search/find Command Button??

Oct 29, 2004

I have a MS Access database, and I have set up a form for users to input

name, address, ssn and other data. I have command buttons on the form

to print a record, add a record, delete a record and to exit. I tried the

search option, but with 50k records on a netwoek, it was to slow.

Is there a way to have a search on a command button, (Macro?) on

this form to allow our employees to search by name or ssn?

Thanks for your help.

Find Command In Access In One Report To Search Throughout Whole Database

Dec 7, 2014

Is there a way to use the find command in access in one report to search throughout the whole database. For instance, I am designing a database that in a report it shows the number identifier of an item, and the actual detailed information is located in a separate form. What I want it to do is to be able to find the detailed information from a command within the report that only has the number identifier.

Find Record Command Button

Oct 26, 2005

I know you can create a find record command button really simply, which when clicked will display the find and replace window.

What i want to do is create a command button that will search a specific field that i specify in a report for the criteria i enter.

i.e i have a customer information form, which contains

Tel etc

what i want is a button that when clicked brings up an input field that allows the user to type the name of the company into this field, then when either the enter key is pressed or another button on this pop up window the matching record will be displayed or a error window stating that there are no matching records. Can anyone help me with this.

Forms :: Filtering With Command Button - Search Multiple Fields At Once?

Jun 20, 2013

I have this code which filters a form with the command button ("Command 82"), but it only searches in the "TASK_NUMBER" field.

How can I make it search multiple fields at once? I feel like you can just use the "Or" operator, but where do I put it?

Private Sub Command82_Click()
Me.Filter = "TASK_NUMBER Like '" & "*" & Me.Text80 & "*'"
Me.FilterOn = True
End Sub

Forms :: Command Button On Click Function - Search By Hedging Program

Jun 26, 2014

I have a command button using this code:

If Me.Setfilter.Caption = "Search By Hedging Program" Then
Me.Filter = "Hedging Program"
Me.FilterOn = True
cmd.Setfilter.Caption = "Don't Search By Hedge Program"
Me.FilterOn = False
cmd.Setfilter.Caption = "Search By Hedging Program"
End If

Hedging program is the column from the table I am trying to filter, it is a yes/no column. I want it to return all yes values in my query if it says search by hedging program and if it says Don't search by hedging program I want it to disregard the filter. I also have it set so that when I click the button it changes the caption from one to the other. So I don't know if I really need the cmd.setfilter lines because they may do the same as my command button on click function.

MS Access Command Button

Apr 16, 2008

Hi All,
I have what it most likely a fairly simple question that I'm looking for help on.

I have a MS Access table called "Products". The table has (4) fields called "SerialNumber" "ModelNumber" "ModelName" and "WarrantyDate"

I have created a form called "Warranty Status", the form contains a text box and a command button.
I would like to set it up so a user would type the serial number into the text box and click the button. If the warranty date associated with the serial number shows to be in warranty, I'd like to display the message to say, "you're item is in warranty". If beyond the warranty date, "Sorry, You Are Out Of Warranty"

Any help on the VB code is greatly appreciated!

Forms :: Open Word Document Via Access Command Button

Feb 4, 2014

I am creating a database. I have all my forms, queries, tables, reports just as I need them. However, I would like to have a command button on my switchboard that will pull from a query to feed to a Word document (that's actually a letter on my company letterhead). I know a Macro has to be involved with this, but again, I have little to no knowledge of Macros. Also, I would like to be prompted to enter a client ID number when I click on this command button (because I only want to print a letter for a new client, not all of them).

Opening A Password Protected Excel File From A Command Button In Access

Dec 22, 2006

Hi All,
I have three excel files (ActualHires.xls, ActualPromotions.xls and
ActualSeparation.xls). These are password protected files (with the
same password). They are linked to an access database and whenever the
files are opened, one must supply the password and click the 'Enable
automatic refresh button.' What I was wondering was if this could be
done in access with a command button. I have pasted some code below
that I found but now I'm getting an error.
This is the code:

Dim BookNames As Variant
Dim B As Long

BookNames = Array("O:ExcelFilesActualHires.xls",

For B = LBound(BookNames) To UBound(BookNames)
WorkBooks.Open FileName:=BookNames(B), _
UpdateLinks:=3, Password:="*******"
WorkBooks(B).Close SaveChanges:=False
Next B

But when I click the button, I get this error:
Run-time error '9' Subscript out of range.

and this line is highlighted:
WorkBooks(B).Close SaveChanges:=False

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Forms :: Command Button To Unlock And Lock Fields / Edit Button?

Feb 19, 2014

I have created a web-database (? - There are globes over all the forms and tables icons) based on the Issues & Tasks template. This means that most of the data is entered and seen on the "Main" form, which has two tabs - Open Issues and Closed Issues. I have created a form that allows people at my work to input the necessary data and save it, so that it will show up on one of the two tabs. However, once a record has been created, I want to be initially locked if the ID/PK is clicked, so that data can't be changed or entered inadvertently.

SO, I changed the code so that when the ID/PK for a record is clicked, it brings up a different form, but one that looks exactly like the one that is brought up when entering a new form, but I locked all of the fields so that the information cannot be changed. It seems from what I have read that I can create a button on this form so that when clicked, it unlocks the fields on the form so that they can be changed, and then when clicked again it will lock the fields again. Is this true? If so, how can I do it? Or is there something similar I can do? I have seen codes that I could copy and paste, but I cannot figure out the place to copy and paste codes in Access 2010.

I have changed the Form properties so that Data Entry and all the "Allows" are set to No...

Difference Between A Command Button And A 'label' Button

Aug 12, 2005

Hi, I have got a small problem and maybe someone could advise me.
I am creating a customised command button from a label button. The new button works fine but I can't apply the 'requery' function to it, if i do an error occures and i am being prompt to save the data first???? :confused: :

Private Sub Labelsearch_Click()
End Sub

Private Sub Labelsearch_MouseDown(Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, X As Single, Y As Single)
Me.Labelsearch.SpecialEffect = 2
Me.Labelsearch.BackColor = 255
Me.Labelsearch.ForeColor = 10092543
Me.Labelsearch.FontItalic = True
Me.Labelsearch.FontBold = True
End Sub

Private Sub Labelsearch_MouseMove(Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, X As Single, Y As Single)
Me.Labelsearch.ForeColor = 255
Me.Labelsearch.FontItalic = False
Me.Labelsearch.FontBold = True
End Sub

Private Sub Labelsearch_MouseUp(Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, X As Single, Y As Single)
'Come back to initial state when button release'
Me.Labelsearch.SpecialEffect = 1
Me.Labelsearch.BackColor = 16373685
Me.Labelsearch.ForeColor = 8388608
Me.Labelsearch.FontItalic = False
Me.Labelsearch.FontBold = True

If I create a command button with the wizard and assign the code :
me!itemquery.Requeryto the on_click event my form is working fine.
Why is his code is not working if I assign it to a label? :o

Find Command

Mar 7, 2006

I have a find command button that appears to call the find and replace message box. It should be a search for anything in my query. The code behind the button looks like the find and replace message box in the office suite. I believe I am trying to create a message box where you add an entry and it searches then lauches a subform with my entries.

When I checked the button it had the following code:
Private Sub cmdFind_Click()
On Error GoTo Err_cmdFind_Click

DoCmd.DoMenuItem acFormBar, acEditMenu, 10, , acMenuVer70

Exit Sub

MsgBox Err.Description
Resume Exit_cmdFind_Click

End Sub

I read a few of the lookup queries but they only give me a drop down. Is there some way to customize the box comes up without altering all of Office or do I just sound lost.

VBA - Search Button To Search Entire Records / Runtime Error 3345

Jun 18, 2014

why the code below is not functioning properly. When I type in an acronym in the textbox, it keeps saying there is an error "Run-time error '3345': Unkown or invalid field reference 'ABO'." I do have ABO in the field.

The dysfunctional code:

Private Sub btnFind_Click()
If (TxtFind & vbNullString) = vbNullString Then Exit Sub
Dim rs As DAO.Recordset
Set rs = Me.RecordsetClone
rs.FindFirst "[Acronym] = " & TxtFind

[Code] .....

The red highlighted line is where the debugger leads me to. Something with identifying the field? I would like to enable the search procedure to search throughout the entire records rather than just a specific field. How may I write such a line or two?

Find Command Question & Couple Other Questions.

Feb 25, 2005

Hello All, I was wondering when you use a find command, if you can make it so it searches two tables from the form your currently viewing, not just the data from the table that is tied to that current form.

Second question is I am thinking about maybe taking some "1 day" classes on access. My question is how many people have taken these & are they worth the money, or is it easier just to buy a book & if buying a book is better what is a good access book to buy.

Using One Search Button To Search 4 Tables In A Database?

Mar 10, 2008

I have a database that uses four forms and each form has it's own table and each form has it's own search button to find a specific record within that table. I would like to use one search button that will look at all four tables and bring up the correct record when the request number is entered. Can I link all the tables to perform this or is code required? Can someone send me in the right direction for how to do this? Give me an example of code if it's required?
Thanks for any help I can get.
