Pass Value Between Forms


I want to pass a value between two forms. I created a text field in one of the forms and tried to access it using:

aVariable = frmSearch.txtQryName.Text

It's not working for me. Is this correct?

Thank you,

How To Pass A Company ID Thorughout All Forms

I have a database that controls donations for a Charity. There is to be a sister charity added to the database and a lot of the previously created objects can be used to provide for the new Charity.
My idea was to create a "company" ID and label the categories of the donations. I could then use this company ID to identify to whom the data captured belongs.

I have used the switchboard manager to enable navigation, in this I have a ONload event procedure that requests the Company ID (1 or 2).
That's as far as I have got.

How would I get Switchboard to open each form (some being based on queries - a couple direct on the tables) and filter the data on the company ID?

If there is a better way, please enlighten me!! :)

Many thanks in advance

Using Forms To Build Sql WHERE Statement For Pass-through Queries
Hi all, i'm currently working a MDB project that aims to develop a front end access solution for users of the sql database. The system is used only to made adjustments to the WHERE clause of the SQL pass-through statement. The SELECT and FROM statements are pre-determined and users won't need to update this. The result is a read only. You might be wondering why i don't use ADP instead, well one of my limitations is that i won't have write access to the database. They are afraid i will corrupt data...

I want to use a series of text and combo boxes to build my WHERE statement, which will be added to the main SQL statement and then pass-through to the server, making use of its much beta processing capabilities. However as i'm trying to read up on VBA, i still have very little knowledge on how this can be done. Its actually similar to the Filter By Form option in datasheet view when i open a pass-through query. However, conditions applied through here means the processing is done on the user's computer, through testing i found this to be unreliable as it causes access to hang frequently. I would love to have this filter by form view available up front to the user before he even executes the query. As i mentioned, he keys in the criteria/conditions and access builds an sql where statement and appends it to the main SQL statement.

any idea how to do this? how do i capture user input and make access construct a WHERE statement from it For example

textbox daterange
Enter range of dates in here: date 1 and date 2
the where statement would then be "WHERE date BETWEEN date1 AND date2

Or is there other more efficient alternatives? sorry i'm very new to VBA and form development, would appreciate lots of advice and answers.

Many Thanks

Procedure Works Great First Pass, But Not The Second Pass
Good afternoon, I have a form with a subform and in the first txtbox of the subform in the GotFocus event I have a little procedure which checks the txtboxs on the parent to make sure that there is data in all four of the txtboxes. This works great the first time and it pops up a msgbox and it even setsfocus on the txtbox with no data in it, but if I tab into the subform a second time and there still is no data in one of the txtboxs on the parent form, nothing happens, no message and no setting focus on the txtbox with no data in it. Does anyone know of a way to get this procedure to re-set everytime a user tries to enter the subform? Thank you in advance to anyone offering and ideas and suggestions.

Pass A Parameter...
Hi there

When using parameters from one form to the next I normally hide the form and then reference the parameter textboxes in the next form to the hidden form. Is there a better way of doing this as I saw threads here mentioning passing a parameter. How do I do this? Thanks!

Pass Value To Scriptlet
Hi all...

i'm having trouble trying to pass a field value from a Data Access Page to a Scriptlet.

Om my DAP i have:

Function returnId()
Dim pId
pId = formName.Id.value
returnId = pId
End Function

And on my scriptlet i have something like this:

Function public_DropMenu()
Dim rId
rId = parent.returnId()

sqlStr = "SELECT * FROM tbl WHERE Id=" & rId

End Function

But parent.returnId() always returns an empty string... Is there any other way to do this?

Thanks in advance.

Pass-Through Query Help
I'm trying to create a PTQ and just cant seem to find the source table.

The name of the source table is PRM1_ORG_MTRX3_N

If I write my query like this, I get an error code that states username.PRM1_ORG_MTRX3_N is an undefined name. It adds my userid to the beginning of the table name.


PRM1_ORG_MTRX3_N as T128

T128.AS_OF_DATE like '1/1/2007'

Then I rewrote the query like this, and I got and error code that said PRM1.ORG_MTRX3_N is an undefined name. Does anyone know what else I can try here to get this query going? Thanks


PRM1.ORG_MTRX3_N as T128

T128.AS_OF_DATE like '1/1/2007'

Pass The Value To DataSheetView
How to pass the values from the first page to the second page? The first page contains the lists of Area_Code. After selecting the area_code and the button being clicked the second page automatically call the Query1 (where the area_code's Criteria is Forms!MainForm!SubForm!txtAreaCode) and get the data back on the DataSheetView on the second page.

I found many people use the comboBox and AfterUpdate() to requery the data. But my case is different. Because on the first page, I have a list of area code which has the button to check the authorisation before continuing to the second page.

Thank you very much!

Pass Parameters
I need some help please on passing parameters such
as a recordsource to a report but not using OpenArgs
I heard that this can be done using a hidden form.

I have a calling form (form1) which opens a preview snapshot
form (form2) which in turn brings up a rptCurrentRecord (form3)
I can't get the openargs RecordSource SQL from form1 to form3

For arguments sake, Form3 in this case is really the report itself.

Hope this is not too confusing.

Thanks for any help

Control Won't Pass
So I have a function (TradeRoof_AfterUpdate) inside my form (frmCustomers) that calls one of 2 functions (ActivateConditions or DeactivateConditions) in a module (modRender). ActivateConditions is then supposed to call on one of 2 functions, Activate or Deactivate, also inside modRender. None of these functions are supposed to return a value, just change visibility of a control and true to false or vice versa.

i don't know why, but for some reason, i can't pass a control from ActivateConditions to Activate or Deactivate. Here are the functions (DeactivateConditions and Deactivate are nearly identical to their counterparts):
Code: Public Sub ActivateConditions(Sticker1 As Control, Condition1 As Control, Optional Condition2 As Control, _Optional Condition3 As Control, Optional Condition4 As Control, Optional Sticker2 As Control) Sticker1.Visible = TrueIf Not IsMissing(Sticker2) ThenSticker2.Visible = TrueEnd IfIf IsMissing(Condition2) ThenActivate Condition1ElseIf IsMissing(Condition3) ThenActivate Condition1Activate Condition2ElseIf IsMissing(Condition4) ThenActivate Condition1Activate Condition2Activate Condition3ElseActivate Condition1Activate Condition2Activate Condition3Activate Condition4End IfEnd Sub

Code: Private Sub Activate(ActiveCondition As Control) ActiveCondition.Visible = TrueActiveCondition = FalseEnd Sub

when i hit the trigger on my form, i get this error: "Run-time error '91': Object variable or With block variable not set," and then it highlights "ActiveCondition.Visible = True" in my Activate function.

Why can't I perform this action? Any help is greatly appreciated!

Pass Through Queries
Is it possible within Access to use a pass through query that joins tables from two different servers?

If not I have a workaround solution though this is a more intensive effort.

As always, you are all great here and any help is appreciated.

Pass Through Query
Can you do a pass through Query to a pivot table when your query has parameters? I'm reading like you can't, but nothing has been said concretely yet. When I do it, it gives me an error "Trouble Obtaining Data" when I try and set the layout.

Pass Arguments To Access

I want to be able to pass arguments to an access file on start up. I want to be able to grab this value and then perform an action based on this.

The program will send an email with details for a change request, the recipient will then need to click on a link to accept or reject this change. So I want them to be able to click the link which will trigger the program to save accept or reject.

How To Pass Data From One Table To The Next?
Hi everyone! :)

First off I have to say I'm not an Access Guru by any means. I can make a very very basic database in access but beyond that I'm toast.

So I've just started working on a project that is in it's second year. The project was started last year by a student and she created, what seems to me, to be an adequate small database for the project. I've noticed however that when entering data, some of it has to be entered twice. This has been made easier through the use of the look up tab in the field definition (?). However, I worked with a student before who created a database where the primary key value of a "parent?" table was automatically forwarded to the corresponding field in the "child?" table.

So here's a hypothetical, let's say you have a restaurant, and one restaurant can have ummmm many tables, and then one table can have manyyyy chairs! There's a unique restaurant id created in the restaurant table, which is say needed with a table number to create a unique table id in the table table, which is in turn needed with a chair number to create a unique chair id in the chair table? So you basically have 3 tables where unique ids are being created. So then lets say you have a chair description table that has fields in it to contain all the ids made previously, as well as some of the information entered to create the unique fields (i.e. table number, chair number). My question is..if I've already entered this data in previous parent tables then why is it that the data doesn't carry forward to these fields? Is it because these fields are not primary key fields in this last table? If that's the case then is there a way to set this up? Right now there's a select statement used in the look up reference option that has something to the effect "select table.table_name from table;". So I know what it's doing and when I enter data I can select the table id I need. It just seems a bit redundant data entry wise to enter yet again values I entered the table before, or values that were generated for me in the table before.

Is there a way to have these fields automatically populate with the corresponding data that was entered to get to this table? Does it involve modifying the select statement to involve a where clause (terminology? clause?). Any ideas would be very much appreciated! Thanks.

SQL Pass Through Form Variables
I know this is probably obvious but how do I pass through form variables to sql server I currently have:

exec QStudent @_param_cmbYear="0708", @_param_SelID="S", @_param_SelForename="d", @_param_SelSurname="S"

this executes correctly SelID being a student ID or partial ID also allowing for surname forename partial search. I thought it would just be:

exec QStudent @_param_cmbYear=[Forms]![Attendance and Lateness Main]![cmbYear], @_param_SelID="S", @_param_SelForename="d", @_param_SelSurname="S"

to switch acad year to a form variable and repeat for the others but it errors on trying to save the pass through. Thanks for the help.
