Forms :: Option Button Traffic Light System

Aug 1, 2013

I have set up a group of 3 buttons to select between on my form which works fine.

However I want this to be a bit more visual than it is so Id like to introduce a traffic light system which lights up RED ORANGE or GREEN depending on which one has been checked.

I am not too sure how I would go about achieving this, im not sure if you can import images and hide them or show them depending on the selection or if it requires something further.

I am trying to force the user into a specific .mdw but it doesn't seem to be working. Here is the exact entry from the shortcut properties:

"C:Documents and SettingswbDesktopSecurity_BB_Project.mdb" /WRKGRP " G:WorkgroupsProject FilesBB_Project.mdw"

As you can see the .mdb is local but the .mdw is on a network drive. The db opens up but it is not using the right .mdw.

Forms :: Option Button Link To Invisible Subform?

May 8, 2014

I have two option buttons, 1_optn and 2_optn. I have two subforms, 1_frm and 2_frm.

When clicking the little round dot (the option button) for 1_optn, I want the subform 1_frm to become visible. Likewise, when clicking 2_optn, I want the subform 2_frm to become visible. In the properties panel, both forms visibility is set to No.

I have tried creating a Macro and the best I've gotten is using the OpenForm function but that opens up the forms in a new window. I'd set the Macro to the OnClick event for a combo box (as I couldn't get the option button to work) so when "1" is clicked, the form would pop up. But they have to be in the same form. No pop ups. It also has to be an option button, not a combo box or list box.It also has to be a Macro. No Event Procedure coding unfortunately.

Forms :: Lock / Unlock Textboxes Based On Option Button?

May 11, 2014

I have a form with 2 option buttons on it one with year 12 on it and one with year 13. I have a simple form with drop down menus and text boxes allocated for year 12s and 13s. I want all of the year 13 text boxes and drop down lists to be locked if year 12 is selected and I want all of the year 12 text boxes and drop down lists to be locked if year 13 is selected. I do not want to over complicate the form by hiding parts of it or having a new form open depending on the option button selected.

Forms :: Create Rectangle Covering Only Desired Controls And Then Make Back Colour Light Gray

Apr 15, 2015

A2010 - on an existing form I have a few controls that I want to hightlight. I thought I would create a rectangle covering only the desired controls and then make the back colour a light grey. But if I do then I cannot see the controls. If I change the back style to transparent then the colour reverts to nothing and I'm back to square one.

It feels like I want to bring the existing controls to the font - but how?If I create new controls on an existing grey rectangle then it works fine.

Option Button

Dec 7, 2006

I have a table that has 300+ peoples names on it. Each of these people has a region they belong to 1,2,3,or 4. I also have a form that has 3 combo boxes that are linked to this one table. This information is sensitive and can change by importing new data as well. Is there a way that I can add 4 option buttons, depending on what the user clicks on Opt1, 2, 3, or 4... that is what populates the combo boxs? This seems rather simple, but I can't figure it out.

Traffic Database

Oct 21, 2004


I am new to access and databases. I have taken on the job of creating a new one form scratch for my company. We are an advertising company and want a system to log, track and search all jobs that go through our traffic and production departments.

I have attached the basic plan for what I think we will need. Can anyone have a look at this and tell me if it looks ok or am I going in the wrong direction. The database will record many different job types with each having unique information in it. I was thinking of splitting these job types in to separate tables but always looking up a value JobsID in the jobs table in order to provide a unique number. And would it be or how would ii go about linking jobs with each other? So one JobID may have more than one job type linked to it ?

Sorry if I have not explained this well but I am trying to learn as I go along.

Thanks brian….

Reducing Network Traffic

Aug 3, 2005

We are shortly going to start using tablet PCs over a GPRS bearer circuit for some of our employees to update our core business system from within customers homes. To do this we have purchased a very streamlined version of our core system, designed to work at a reasonable speed even over a normal GSM connection.

The employees that will be using this also use an access database that I've created though. Whilst it isn't crucial that they can use this while they're out and about, it might be useful and it's something I am interested in looking into. In order to make it feasible though, I think I would probably need to dramatically reduce the amount of data transferred between the be and fe due to the high cost of data over GPRS (as well as the speed). So I have a few questions.

1) Am I right in thinking that if I am using ms access as a backend, all the processing is done at the front end? i.e. I run a query on the front end, the whole table is retrieved from the back end and then filtered at the front end?

2) Is there any way to get around this? Or would it require switching the back end to SQL Server or something?

3) Is there any way of measuring how much data (in bytes, kb etc) is being transferred between the front end and back end while running queries, updating records etc.?

I'll probably think of some more questions but this will do for starters. :)

Option Button Linked With Combo Box

Jun 28, 2006

Morning folks,

Todays problem is as follows!...

Is there away to set the values in a combo box depending on what option button you have selected.

What I would like is to select an option button in an option group then that would trigger certain vaules in a combo box. And if I selected another option button it would change the values in the same combo box?

So if I selected optWhite, the values in cboEthnic = British AND Irish AND Other

If I select optMixed, the values in cboEthnic = White and Black Asian AND White and Black Caribbean etc...

Hope this makes sense.
