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

Procedure Works Great First Pass, But Not The Second Pass

Jul 15, 2005

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.

Forms :: Field Value Does Not Pass Into The SQL

May 30, 2014

totalold = total
total = amhrs + pmhrs
Debug.print totalold, total
DoCmd.RunSQL "update hoursbilled set hours = (hours - totalold), extended = ((hours - totalold)*45) where customer=cust AND employee=empl AND friday=grabfriday;"

The Debug shows the actual value in totalold, but when the query line executes, there's a pop up asking for a value for the totalold field?

How To Pass A Company ID Thorughout All Forms

Jul 5, 2005


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

' Refresh the list box
End Sub

Using Forms To Build Sql WHERE Statement For Pass-through Queries

Mar 17, 2006

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

Forms :: How To Pass Listbox Name As Parameter In A Function

Mar 5, 2014

I've a method **querylistboxitems** and i want to call this method in several click events, only difference is listbox,dropdown values change based on the event i call.


Public Sub querylistboxitems(lstbox As listbox, dropdown As ComboBox)
Dim drpdwnvalue As String
drpdwnvalue = dropdown.Value
With lstbox
//do something
End with
End Sub

And I'm calling this in the buttion click event by passing the listbox names as **List_Compare** and **Select_CM_Compare**

Private Sub Command_compare_Click()
Call querylistboxitems_1(List_Compare, Select_CM_Compare)
End Sub

But the values passing to the function are not control names, control values i.e corresponding control selected values.
I want to use listbox name in **lstbox**, not the value.

Forms :: Pass Field Into Hyperlink / Button?

Mar 19, 2013

.I'm trying to pass a field ([txtUPRN]) in a form to a hyperlink or button on the form.

e.g. [URL]

I thought I could add a hyperlink and simply change the part 'jlocation = 26800' to 'jlocation = Me![txtUPRN]' but this would be too easy as it doesn't work. THe URL still opens a web page but displays no data. Do I have to be more explicit as to what I'm passing in i.e. use the full form name or am I going about this the wrong way?

Forms :: Possible To Make Pass Through Table Editable After Filter It?

Jan 8, 2015

So what I have created is a form with 4 combo boxes which filters a subform with a click button by running a sql query.It was working great yesterday but then when I made the subform a pass through query it seems to no longer run (or just runs so slow it takes a large amount of time to query). To get a better sense of what I'm talking about I basically have a button and inside of the button it takes this query template:

SQL = "SELECT * FROM queryname WHERE 1=1"

concats with if statements to the end of the Where clause with the values in the combo box and then sets

subFormName.Form.RecordSource = SQL

how I can get this table to query...Also, for my second question, is it possible to make this pass through table editable after I filter it?

Forms :: Pass Value From Form To Calling Form

Apr 21, 2015

I have Form A that is bound to tbl_Member (MemberId, LastName, FirstName, and some other fields).

On Form A is a combobox [cbo_Selector]. The combobox shows LastName and FirstName from tbl_Member, but when a name is selected, it returns the member's ID to Form A and causes that member's record to show in Form A (along with other data pertinent to the member). This works fine until I type a name into the combobox that does not exist in the underlying table.

I use the NotInList event of the combobox to pop up another form (Form B) in the DataEntry mode. Form B is bound to the same table as Form A. I enter the LastName, FirstName, and exit Form B. What I am trying to do is to have Form B pass back the new MemberId to Form A and specifically to add that record's data to the combobox on Form A.

I have tried several things to accomplish this. When Form B updates, the table has the new member added, but when I try to requery Form A or the combobox, I get errors. how do I communicate to the combobox in Form A the information from the newly added record?

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-Through Query Help

Jul 13, 2007

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

May 25, 2005

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

Aug 30, 2005

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.

Control Won't Pass

Dec 21, 2004

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!

How To Pass A Value From One Form To Another

Nov 26, 2013

So I have 2 forms, an Edit Lot Form, and an Add Run Form. Each lot will contain several runs. What I want to do is be able to add a run associated with the specific lot by pressing a button "Add Run" in the lower right corner of the edit lot form (see attached images). So the information for the lot will carry over to the run form and autofill the fields pertaining to the Lot in that form.
