Ms Access Search/find Command Button??

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 Record Command Button
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.

MS Access Command Button
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!

Linking Crystal Report (v10) To Command Button In Access 2003
I am creating a project where I have a form in which parameters are entered. I would like to click a command button to run a query based on the parameters which open the data in a Crystal Report. I was going to use the Crystal ActiveX Report Viewer Control, but I could not find a place to identify the path. The second issue is how to get the parameters to work being selected on the Access side and executed through the query creating a crystal report. The confusing part to me is that there are at least 50 different parameters that could be used/queries that result. I would like to write one report to be used and the report contents determined by parameters/query results. The end result is an income statement if that helps at all. I appreciate any help anyone can provide.

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

Difference Between A Command Button And A 'label' Button
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

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

Find Command
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.

Here's the code I have at the moment.

Private Sub cmdSearchLine_Click()

DoCmd.GoToControl ("Line")

End Sub

If anyone could help that would be great, thanks.

Find Command Question & Couple Other Questions.
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.

Command Button To Set Value
I have been working on this for awhile, and can't figure it out for the life of me!

I have a form set up with a drop down box that lets me pick from values from a table based off of the Primary Key of that table (Row Source = SELECT Order.OrderID, Order.OrderName from Order). I have a button on the form that I want to set a value (Closed) from the table entry based off of the order selected.

Pseudo code would go something like this.

Closed.Value = True Where Table.Order.OrderID = SelectedOrderID

Table.Order is a Table Named Order (obviously)
Closed is a yes/no field in my Order table
OrderID is the primarykey of the table Order
SelectedOrderID is the drop down box.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Command Button?
I, unfortunately, have been singled out as the Access guru in my work area. We have 223 people and the Information Manager has tasked me to modify a database he "found" to be able to track a number of things, but most important to him: performance reports.

I have posted the sample of what I currently have. What is being asked of me is a way in which to have a button or by double-clicking a block where a date would go for all other dates on the form to become non-visible while the current date stored in the computer the database is being worked from be entered in the block where the button or double-click happened. All this links to a report for the IM to be able to track what performace reports are out, and when they are due back to his section. He also wants me to be able to show which are overdue and where they are at. I am not sure if it is at all possible, but with me having spend most of last week purusing the articles on Access here, I know now that nothing is implausible if you happen to go about it the right way.

Since I have read the rules on posting, here is what I have done. I searched the forum for command button and got a lot of really cool ideas to use elsewhere in the database. I looked up the help in the program itself for command button, and got some good information on how a command button works, but I cannot make it put a date into a block. I can enter the date in any block that is a date format, but then I have dates in every block. He only wants to see the most current date in any of the blocks.

Any assistance at this point would be appreciated. If I have missed something in another thread, I apologise in advance.

Command Button
A couple of weeks ago I asked the question of how to send a single record from one table to another (Archive table) using a command button. I got a response. I have had time to work with this a little. My problem is I keep getting a error message "Run-time error '3075'; Syntax error (missing operator) in Query expression "[New ID]='. I wanted to mention that the archive table has an "archive ID" field as well as "New ID" that links the tables. I have the following code. Please help with this if possible.

" Private Sub Command667_Click()
' Save the main record if it has not been saved.
If Me.Dirty Then
DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdSave
End If

If MsgBox("Do you want to archive this record?", vbYesNo) = vbYes Then
Dim SQL As String

' Move main record to Grants Activity Archive.
SQL = "Insert into [Grants Activity Archive]" & _
" select * from [Grants] where [New ID]=" '" & Me.ID & "'"
CurrentDb.Execute SQL
End If

End Sub "

The error seems to refer to the & Me.ID section. I have tried putting Me.New ID and also Me.Archive ID. The Grants Activity Archives is the subform where I want the record to go. This subform is set up like a form with many fields so it is a lot of work to type the main record from the Grants table to the Grants Activity Archive table every time you want to archive a record. I hope that makes sense.
