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.
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
AccountNo CompanyName Address Postcode 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.
I would like to create a form that allows me to search for a folder on my desk top, then once located i can transfer that file to a specific location on another drive, Similar to the Browse / upload function you see on many applications.I am using Access 2003. Is this possible??
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" Else 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.
I haven't used access before and have been set the task to create a data of photos. The table is called 'Find a Photo' and contains 6 catergories of various information including river, site and date. I would like to create a search/command button by which i can type the river, site and date into seperate text boxes and search all of them at the same time.I don't know how to connect a command button to command button and not sure if any macros/queries are needed. Hope all this aint to hard to do.
Is it possible on the Find Record button added to a form to adjust the search function so it defaults to a specific box on the form? I have a form for tracking employee's and on my Find Record button I would like it to default to the Last name instead of the Record number.
i need to create a system that can search data using keyword.so i want to create search button that i will create it at form. currently i have 1 table and in that table i have 10 fields which are project_name, doc_ref_no, doc_title, volume, book_no, author, doc_status, box_barcode, filling_location, doc_availability.

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"
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).
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:
in the attached form i can select multiple image but my next and back button does not work ,also i want the path to the file shown above.to copy the name from there and paste it in the table,to write remarks.
I am rewriting an old Access 2003 database in Access 2010. When creating new command buttons, the current theme gives them a default appearance. I need to apply this appearance to old command buttons. I know there is a way to select the default button and apply its properties to others quickly. I have done it before but didn't write the process down .
In my database I've encountered a hitch - I've got one form set up to view one person at a time and I've got many records in this database - Is it possible to create a textbox and a button called search that will take me to the record containing this text?
i.e currently im on record abc i type into the text dfe and press search - it will take me to a record that contains that text?
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...
All I am trying to do is insert to have a form with a "Delete Record" button on it. The problem is I don't want anyone to be able to delete a record, I would like someone to have to insert a password to confirm the delete.
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() Me!itemquery.Requery 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 End
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
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
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:
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
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?
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.
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.
