Forms :: Filter Button On Form As Filter

Aug 1, 2013

I have placed a filter button on a form as a filter and written the following on-click event procedure:

DoCmd.SetWarnings False
DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdApplyFilterSort
Me.FilterOn = True

When I click the filter button I get a blank message box titled 'Microsoft Access" and an OK button, when closed the filter works perfectly.I have checked this procedure in other forms and it works without showing the blank message box.The only difference with this form is that its control source is a union query.

Forms :: Command Button - Set A Default Filter And Filter On Load

Aug 13, 2014

I have a continuous form based on table "INCOMES" that shows all the payments received, which mediums can be (field "PMNT_MEDIUM"):

- check
- transfer
- taxes
- cash

Table "INCOMES" is filled using another form, but in this particular form I just want to show "check", "transfer" and "cash" (not "taxes") so that I can track all the cash incomes.

Note: taxes are loaded because they appear in my invoices and I need them there to reach the invoice total amount.So my form has a search bar which allows me to search by PMNT_MEDIUM listing all "checks", all "cash" or all "transfer". I can also search by payment number (meaning: check number). To that end I have a "search" button that applies the filter. And I have another button that "cleans" the filtering by "putting a "" in the search-bar and then calling the "on click" of the search button".

What I need is, no matter if I click over the "search" or "clean" button, it NEVER shows me the "taxes".Search button, on click code:

If IsNumeric(Me.busq_chq_med) Then
Me.Filter = "[PMNT_MEDIUM] like'" & Me.SEARCH_BAR & "*'"
Me.Filter = "[PMNT_MEDIUM] like'" & Me.SEARCH_BAR & "*' or [INVOICE] like'" & Me.SEARCH_BAR & "*'"
End If
Me.FilterOn = True

Clean filter button, on click code:

Call [Search button]_click
Me.Filter = "[PMNT_MEDIUM] like'" & Me.SEARCH_BAR & "*'"
Me.FilterOn = True

Forms :: Filter Form With Two Text Boxes / Command Button?

Mar 22, 2013

I am trying to filter a form by using two unbound text boxes that a user can enter in their criteria and then clicking a command button to filter the form using the criteria entered into the text boxes. My fields are as follows:

Bound Field: MondayD1
Unbound text box: txtMonday
Bound Field: SundayD7
Unbound text box: txtSunday
Command Button: cmdSelect
MondayD1 = txtMonday
SundayD7 = txtSunday

I have looked up several options using vb for the on click event of the command button but I either get an error message or the form shows up blank.

Forms :: Dynamic Filter With Multiple Possible Filter Criteria

Jan 26, 2015

I have a form that is showing data from 1 table. That table has 12 different fields on it and I want to be able to filter based on selections I make in a combo box in the header of the form. The filter string must be dynamic enough to allow filtering based on 1 criteria selected, or multiple criteria selected. For example:

If I have values in filter fields 3, 5, and 9 I'd want the filter string to be created as follows:

"...WHERE field3 = field3filter.value AND field5 = field5filter.value AND field9 = field9filter.value"

If I have values in only field 7, I'd want th efilter string to be created as follows:

"...WHERE field7 = field7filter.value"

And so on and so on.

I have created some filters before but all of the different VBA syntaxes I'm using seem to come up short.

Filter Command Button On A Form

Dec 12, 2005

I have a basic question.

I am trying to put a button on a form I have created so that I can use Filter by Form feature on it. I used the toolbox commnad button wizard and chose the Form Operations -> Apply Form Filter option for the button.

Unfortunately, this button does not work for this choice. In the Form view, if I click on this button nothing happens. Other choices in the wizard such as Edit Form Filter etc works.

Does anyone know what could be the problem? Is this an Access bug (i am using Access 2003).

If it is a bug, can anyone suggest what little modifications one might have to do to the VBA code underlying OnClick event for the button to make this command button work?

thanks a lot for the help

Possible To Filter By Form Using A Command Button?

Mar 6, 2006

Hi, I'm an Access newbie. I've designed a fairly simple database to replace an old spreadsheet that was becoming unwieldy -- it was never really used so much for calculation as for data storage, so Access seems more appropriate anyway.

One of the functions I used in Excel was the autofilter, which I found very useful for zeroing in on specific portions of the data. I was wondering how I would do the same thing in Access, and then I discovered the "Filter by Form", which works just fine -- even better actually, since it has the whole and/or functionality.

I was wondering though if it would be possible to invoke "Filter by Form" using a command button. That would make it even easier, especially for some of my users who would almost certainly not know about "Filter by Form" otherwise.

Filter Button On Split Form?

Feb 11, 2015

I have this code set to a button on a split form. It filters out all the blank records for the "Status" column.

Private Sub cmdFilterPendingStatus_Click()
Me.Filter = "[Status]"
Me.FilterOn = True
End Sub

I would like to do the exact opposite and filter out everything except for the blank records in the "Status" column.

How can I change the code to do this? I guess I should also mention that the "Status" field is a long text/memo box but I can easily change this to short text if I really have to. I realize that short text can do the blank filtering within the split form itself by clicking on that tiny arrow in the column header but I am trying to make it really user friendly where the user can just click a button to do this. The long text box has some options to filter but not for blank fields in a record which makes me think that this may not be possible to do if the Status field remains a long text box. Some examples for the filtering options that are available in the split form for a long text box are: Begins with, contains, ends with, etc... however, when I type "" to try and filter out everything except the records that have null in the Status field, it says that "" is not valid.

What can I do to get the results I need?

Forms :: Apply Filter To List Box - Toggle Button

I have a form with data fields and a list box, data is coming from a query. When I add a toggle button to apply a filter to the data on the form, the data in the fields are filtered, but the list box still shows all the data items. How do I use a toggle button or something on the form that when activated it filters the data in the list box and the list box only shows the filtered content.

Filter A Report USING A Forms Filter Results

Oct 25, 2006

I am using MS Acess2000 and need to make a report that will be passed around with production work. My primary key is the invoice number of the work order. Currently to open an invoice i have a macro, attached to a query with the following qualifiers; Like [Enter invoice]

This pulls up the current record fine.
for the form and flags the folloing in the property filter sectin of the form

(((([CustomerTableMasterRef].[Invoice]) Like [Enter invoice])))


Now I am trying to use microsofts how to filter a report using a forms filter...
This picks up on the Invoice query as shown above but does not just insert the query results...

Is there better code or another way to approach this... Currently i am using:

Caption: Open Report
OnClick: [Event Procedure]

Private Sub CmdOpenReport_Click()
If Me.Filter = "" Then
MsgBox "Open an Invoice First"
DoCmd.OpenReport "rptCustomers", acViewPreview, , Me.Filter
End If
End Sub

Using this code not only does my report not detect the correct fields to import data (no data is filled in) but it requerys the invoice or atleast should, which I could do with out all of that code...

Where should i go from here?

get it right...any suggestions would be very much appreciated!

Can A Refresh Button On A Form Remove The Current Filter.

Mar 5, 2006

hi, i have a search form, and when you double click on the record, it opens that record in my main form (which opens filtered)

this is fine because it displays the record that i want to see

however, when i try to perform other tasks on my main form, such as choosing the id from a combo box and finding that record, it wont work because the form is still filtered, one way to get around this is to open and close the form, but is there a way that i can implement something into my refresh button that removes a form filter.

Private Sub Refresh_Page_Click()
On Error GoTo Err_Refresh_Page_Click

DoCmd.DoMenuItem acFormBar, acRecordsMenu, 5, , acMenuVer70

Exit Sub

MsgBox Err.Description
Resume Exit_Refresh_Page_Click

End Sub

Filtered Form - Remove Toggle Filter Button?

May 16, 2012

I have a form that opens with a filter on depending on what the user is supposed to see. When I deploy this, I don't want them to see the "toggle filter" button at the top. I tried making a custom ribbon like this:

<customUI xmlns="
<ribbon startFromScratch="true">
<tab idMso="TabHome" visible="false" />

[Code] ....

But it didn't seem to have any effect. When I applied it, it didn't even create "A Custom Tab". That might be because I have disabled everything that I could disable on the "Current database" options, I'm not sure.

Forms :: Display Row Names And Blank Table Until Filter Button Is Pressed

Jan 7, 2015

So what I've basically got here is a form with 4 combo boxes and a button that when clicked will filter the results of a table (which is a subform/subreport) based on the values inside the combo boxes. So the problem I have is that when I open up the form it displays a fully filled table but I just want to display the row names and a blank table until the filter button is pressed.

I'm trying to use a command button in a form to filter and open a report. I am able to get it to open the report, but I cannot get it to filter the report based on a combobox in the form. I've tried every combination of code I could think of and find. Here is what I currently have:

DoCmd.OpenReport "Report", acViewReport, "First Name='" & Me.FName & "'"
End Sub

Option Compare Database

There are 3 drop down button that should filter category of items in a database:

Category 1
Category 2
Category 3

Whatever users choose in category 1, it will filter the items in Category 2. whatever users choose in category 2, it will filter the items in category 3. users can choose 1 to 2 categories or sometimes the 3 categories. the items will show in a subform. the subform are getting the items from a query. the dropdown button gets its value from a Table.

My challenge is that, i want to get the number of items in Category 1 once users chose it. if they choose something in Category 2 the number of items will change also. there will be 3 textbox for Category 1 COUNT, Category 2 COUNT, and Category 3 COUNT.

as of now, what im getting is only the filtering of Category 1 and Category 1 COUNT.

Modules & VBA :: Filter Records - Adding Unbound Date Listbox To Filter String

Feb 10, 2014

I'm trying to hash two scripts I've found into 1 functioning filter, however I'm still relatively new to vba and can't figure out how to get this working.

I'm trying to use Allen Browne's Search Criteria:

with another snippete of code I found here:

'Purpose: This module illustrates how to create a search form, _
where the user can enter as many or few criteria as they wish, _
and results are shown one per line.


It's the date part I'm having trouble with, the rest of the search criteria work fine without the date, but I can't get it working when I try to modify and merge the date sections of each code.

Also I'm using a listbox for the "Yesterday";"Last 4 days";"Last 9 days" and not a combo box.

Forms :: Multiple Filter Form

Jun 16, 2015

I have a form that has two different option button frames and 1 text box that I would like my users to be able to use to search/filter for specific records. I chose a form because a table does not work as a user-friendly interface for the data that is being stored. The first option button frame allows the user to filter by Month and is named [FilterDate].The second option button frame allows the user to filter by incomplete and complete records and is named [FilterOption].

The text box is used as a search box and is named [txtsearch].I am able to successfully create macros to apply filters for each of the above options; however, each time one of the options is updated, it removes the previous filter. What I need is creating a macro (preferrably) or vba code (if macro is not possible) so that my users can first pick a month (as this will always be the first thing they do when opening the form), then pick complete or incomplete records within that month if desired. The search box then would only filter records that meet the first two criteria (month and complete/ incomplete).

Forms :: How To Use GROUP BY In Form Filter

Apr 1, 2013

I have developed an accounting database which includes, among others, tables for Transactions and Creditors. I want to query the data for a particular time period to find out how much I have paid to each creditor. At the moment I can do this by having a Main Form based on Creditors, and a subform based on Transactions that contains a filter to display only those records that fit into the selected time period.

Now, there are some creditors to whom I have paid nothing during that particular period, so the subform shows no records. That's fine, but as I have several hundred creditors, it's tedious to pan through each creditor to see if I have paid anything.

What I want is for the subform to display records from ONLY those creditors to whom I have paid something. I can view these records with a select query by using the GROUP BY function. However it seems that a form's filter property will not accept a WHERE clause that includes a GROUP BY clause.

How I can program this in VBA, i.e. to mimic a select query's GROUP BY function for use as a form filter?
