Visual Basic 6 0 And Microsoft Access
I have a VB program that uses Microsoft Access. However, I would like to use code so that if a user selects a particular date range (i.e., 2005-2006 rather than 2006-2007) the code will direct that user to a particular table. Perhaps this is something within MS Access but I am learning to use both Access and VB at the same time. Any assistance would be appreciated. Thank you.
Microsoft Access To Visual Basic
I currently manage several databases in Microsoft Access and wish to migrate these to Visual Basic stand-alone applications. I wish to do this because there are currently compatibility problems between versions of Microsoft Access that we do not require to have in the future.
I would prefer to develop an application in Visual Basic that uses the data in Access tables as its data source but is stand-alone in that it can be installed on any computer (running Windows) whether or not the client has Microsoft Office and no matter which version of Office they have.
My question is, does anyone know of any problems with this approach and is it feasible to do what I propose? I have written small VB apps that use Access tables before and they worked fine, however I have never been able to get it to reproduce reports like the ones in Microsoft Access. I have heard that Crystal reports can do this but I have no experience of it.
Any advice would be appreciated.
Trying To Use Visual Basic 6 To Open A Microsoft Access .mdb
I have no idea where to start, I just need a general idea if this is
Originally I created a vb app that uses the WebBrowser component to
view excel files, which seemed to work fine, but does not give me the
control over the user scrolling around the spreadsheet once it was
I then tried using the OLE object to open an embedded excel form and
that looks terribly ugly when you try to edit any of the fields.
So now I'm on to trying to open an access application within my vb
application. Is this even possible? and if so what component do I
need to import inorder to open the *.mdb file? I've searched and
searched but to no avail it looks like no one has tried doing this
(perhaps there are better ways).
Please help, I'm running out of time... Thanks in advance,

Microsoft Access Linked To Visual Basic Professional
As relatively new to Visual Basic programming, I have had no success in being able to read and update Microsoft Access tables once designed. More specifically if I create the table and link it to my application as a database, Access asks me to update to a later version. If I don't, I can't modify the tables or forms. If I do, then when I run the program Visual Basic notifies me that it is an unrecognized database and I can't use it. Does anyone know what I should do?
Problem Using Microsoft Access (.mdb) File In Visual Basic
I'm trying to use microsoft access file .mdb (in window 2000) file in visual basic6 but everytime "unrecognized database format" appear. The sample file-NWIND provided by vb can be used instead of my .mdb file. I don't really understand about system's ADO or DAO and how to check them. Can we change the setting in the References? How can I use my own .mdb file in vb?
Using Non American Date Formats With Microsoft Access And Visual Basic
Using non American date formats with Microsoft Access and Visual Basic.
I set my regional settings to English(Ireland) or English(United Kingdom)
and my date appears in Access as DD/MM/YYYY.
However if the day is less than 12 the day then becomes the month
e.g. 3 July 2003 is displayed in Visual Basic as 7 March 2003.
So if I have two records with different dates as such 6/8/03 and 15/8/03
the first date is 8 June 2003 and the second is 15 August 2003.
If I reset the Regional settings on the PC back to English(United States)
the problem goes away as long as I'm happy with MM/DD/YYYY format, but of
course I can't insist on an end users PC's regional settings being changed
in order for my application to run properly.
I've tried combinations of formatting the date in Access and formatting the
value returned in Visual Basic but I don't feel I'm winning the battle.
I could format the date and save it as a string and vice versa but I'm
hoping that isn't the only solution. I'm sure people have encountered this
a million times already. Any help on how you would approach this problem
would be greatly appreciated.
Microsoft Access / Visual Basic 6.0 Two Tables/combo Box Problems HELP PLEASE!
--SORRY-- POSTED IN WRONG SECTION--
I am currently working on a project for a reading recovery program and I have run into some difficulties. A combo box pulls information from one table in the database to list students that are currently in the database. Another screen enables users to add, edit, delete, etc. However, I need to use the data that is populated in the combo box to pull information that is in the second table in the same database to populate the test data in the form for updating.
1. I can populate the combo box with the information from the first table. (I can list the students in the databases. NO problem here)
2. How can I use the selection of the combo box to populate the form with the data from the second table in the same database? (How can I pull up the test data of the student selected from combo box?)

Microsoft Access User Login Form Visual Basic Troubles
This site has been a wonderful guide for me as I've taken on the task of teaching myself VBA and VB.
Currently I am having a problem with some VBA code in Microsoft Access.
I'm trying to make a user login form that will reference a table (tblAgentInfo) to allow access to the database. This table contains the folling infomation:
chrAgentID (primary key)
The form contains one unbound drop-down list. It is sources its information using SQL: SELECT tblAgentInfo.chrAgentID, tblAgentInfo.strUserName FROM tblAgentInfo;.
It also has some code for After_Update():
Private Sub cboUserName_AfterUpdate()
'After selecting user name set focus to password field
The form also contains an unbound text box. It has an input mask so it displays as ******.
Finally, there is a cmd button labeled Logon.
The code I have for the cmd_Logon_DblClick() is as follows:
Private Sub cmdLogin_Click()
'Check to see if data is entered into the UserName box
If IsNull(Me.cboUserName) Or Me.cboUserName = "" Then
MsgBox "You must enter a User Name.", vbOKOnly, "Required Data"
'Check to see if data is entered into the password box
If IsNull(Me.strPassword) Or Me.strPassword = "" Then
MsgBox "You must enter a Password.", vbOKOnly, "Required Data"
'Check value of password in tblAgentInfo to see if this
'matches value chosen in combo box
If Me.strPassword.Value = DLookup("strpassword", "tblagentinfo", "[lngAgentID]=" & Me.cboUserName.Value) Then
lngMyAgentID = Me.cboUserName.Value
'Close logon form and open splash screen
DoCmd.Close acForm, "frmdatabaselogon", acSaveNo
MsgBox "Password Invalid. Please try again.", vbOKOnly, "Invalid Entry!"
'If User enters incorrect password 3 times database will shut down
intlogonattempts = intlogonattempts + 1
If intlogonattempts > 3 Then
MsgBox "You do not have access to this database. Please contact Admin.", vbCritical, "Restricted Access"
There is also a public module storing this information:
Public lngMyAgentID as Long
I get as far as the reference to check the password. If I don't enter a username the msgbox works fine. Same is true if I don't enter a password.
If you choose a user name and enter an incorrect or correct password I get the following error: " Run Time Error '2001' : You canceled the previous operation. " If I click debug, the following line is highlighted when the code window opens:
If Me.strPassword.Value = DLookup("strpassword", "tblagentinfo", "[lngAgentID]=" & Me.cboUserName.Value) Then
I'm stumped. I'm a complete new user here and I've been able to fumble my way pretty well so far. I got this code from a website and it have fantastic reviews.
Any suggestions or help would be SO appreciated.

Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0
I'm thinking about selling my Visual Basic 6.0 Professional Edition, only because I want to buy Visual Studio (or Basic) 6.0 Enterprise Edition. Now, it would be pointless to keep both, but if I were to sell it, would someone be interested in buying it? I don't want to sell it under $60, but anywhere above is fine. This is not a definite, but incase I do...would you buy it and how much would you pay for it?

Just wondering what the disadvantages are of Visual Basic Express as opposed to the normal VB6? Is it even the same thing? Or is it two completely different programs?

Microsoft Word OLE Visual Basic 6
I am trying to do something that seems very simple in nature, yet overpowering via code! =) Your help is very much appreciated!
1.) I need Visual Basic to open an existing Microsoft Word document. I have no problems with this part. ;)
2.) I then need Visual Basic to go through the entire loaded document to replace text. If I have an occurence of <<customer>> I'd like to replace that with a customer name via Visual Basic code. As of the moment I'm using the words.item object, but it's really slow. I really need to find out how to use the replace command but have no clue. I am asking for any help you may offer... Thanks a lot!
Visual Basic And Microsoft Word
I have a VB application and I have a function there, for working with Microsoft Word.
this is the begin the code:
Set WordTemplate = CreateObject("WORD.APPLICATION")
Set WordReport = GetObject(app.Path + "NewDoc.doc")
.Visible = True
.Selection.Find.Text = "Construction"
.Selection.Find.Replacement.Text = "-----------------"
.Selection.Find.Forward = True
My problem is, if the user already has a word document openend or, while I'm working in VB with the Word document and the user goes to other editor, the program crashed and say me the error:
**Object variable or with block variable not set**
this error can occurs in any part of the code where I'm using the wordreport object, for example
WordReport.Application.Selection.MoveLeft Unit:=wdCharacter, Count:=1
I was thinking if I need to close all word applications before I start with this, but, I saw, also, if you don't have any Word document opened, this error occurs

Visual Basic && Microsoft Excel Integration.
A program i recently wrote involes a user entering various peices of information resulting in a form with a summary of all information they've entered. I want this form to be printable incase the user wishes to store the information on paper form aswell as in a database (already catered for), i have the print command button and i was simply thinking of adding the code PrintForm but thought to myself it wouldn't print to a professional standard. I designed a table in Microsoft Excel to hold the information displayed on the summary form at the end of my table, now i'm wondering what type of code i'd be looking at so that when the user clicked print on the summary form Microsoft Excel loaded the table i designed and it was filled with the information displayed on the summary form and then printed, after printing it would be nice if Microsoft Excel exited or the window became inactive and the summary form became active again but that's just an addition to the main task at hand.
If anyone could point me in the right direction or infact even be kind enough to give me an example peice of code on how i'd go about achieving this then it'd be greatly appreciated, alternatively to replying you could email me. Thanks for reading my post.

Header In Microsoft Word Through Visual Basic
I have to make some reports in Word through Visual Basic.
If the file has more than 2 pages, I have to change the header of the second page.
Can someone give me the source code to write the word "test" in the header of the second page.
I found this on the net but it doesn't work:
intNbPages = wrdapp.Selection.Information(wdNumberOfPagesInDocument)
If intNbPages > 1 Then
Set objRange1 = ActiveDocument.Sections(3).Headers(wdHeaderFooterPrimary).Range
.InsertDateTime "dddd, d MMMM, yyyy", False
.InsertAfter Titre + Chr(13)
I'm not sure how to use the "sections".
How does it work ?
I Have Microsoft Excel 97 And A Visual Basic Project
My visual basic project is to atomatically go from one question to another wherein some of the cells in the Microsoft Excel cells have an equation to solve befor the next question or equation. The equation of interest calculates .940 through .979.
The table is composed of columns labeled .940 through .979. The columns are really two columns for .940, two for .941...until .979. The first column has degrees Fahrenheit from -15.0 to +104.0 by tenths of a degree. The second column has a number for cubic feet per minute, a differnt number for each Fahrenheit reading. What I need to do is get the program to see--ah, ha .942--go to .942 column, read down the Fahrenheit column to say 52.2 degrees Fahrenheit or whatever the digital thermometer says and go over to its corresponding CFM number, remember that number and put that number into the next equation in the other section of the spreadsheet that lists questions/equations to the last equation which calculates the % diference between the standard 40 CFM and the reading from this Look-Up Table.
I could do this in the old GW Basic, but what ever happen to Go to, If Then, For Next statements to do in Microsoft Excel 97?
An Introduction To Programming Using Microsoft Visual Basic 2005
Hi there, I'm a computer engineering teacher for a grade 10 class in a school in Ontario, Canada. I am currently using the book called "An Introduction to Programming Using Microsoft Visual Basic 2005" (Author: Beth Brown) to teach my class with. Grade 10 course for computer engineering is for beginners and people who are still new to VB or have limited knowledge of VB.
My question and request is if anyone has the answers or codes(or know a source to) the excercise questions in the book. I need this for my class and for myself in the future for classes in following semesters.
If anyone knows this book, I'd appreciate the help.
Creating And Compiling Visual Basic Without Microsoft's Program
I'm now starting to learn Visual Basic in a course, and I must admit it's pretty cool.
But, I do get some home assignments, and I have no way to accomplish them because I don't have Microsoft Studio or whatever it's called at home, and I'm obviously not gonna buy it because it's very expensive and who knows I might quit the course tomorrow.
Anyhow, is it possible to create and run visual basic programs without that studio? That would really be great so I can practice at home.

Opinions On Microsoft Visual Basic Game Programming With DirectX?
I'm getting a book on how to program games in VB well. I've heard some good things about this book (Microsoft Visual Basic Game Programming With DirectX) and was wondering what people thought about it, if you have used it, if you've heard of anything better. Books are pretty expensive, so I want to get a really quality one. Also, does anyone know if this covers good practices for structuring games as well? A.K.A. is it very complete, or does it mostly just discuss Direct X?
Answering Microsoft Generated Dialog Boxes In Visual Basic Code
If any one can shed some light on this it would be greatly appreciated.
I have written a program that allows the user to enter some information and from this the program calculates more data and exports it into an excel spreadsheet. The program works fine, however, it has one facet that I am not sure how to deal with:
The code saves the newly created spreadsheet to a location defined by the user. Occasionally, a file already exists in the location the user has selected. Microsoft Excel therefore generates the usual dialog box that asks the user if he wants to replace the existing file with the new one. Is there any way I can stop this dialog box from appearing making the program automatically replace the existing file with the new one? Or is there a way I can make 'Yes' the default answer without the user having to select anything?
Thanks in advance for any help you can give!
