Forms :: Using Web Browser Control To Show PDF

Apr 2, 2013

I'm trying to use the Access 2010 web browser control to dynamically show a PDF.


and the dynamic part is two fields from the selected record:

me.txtMsdsID & "." & me.txtVersion

what is the simplest way to "bind" this so that when a record changes it automatically refreshes this control? I've tried setting it with VBA, but it's not working consistently.

I know the issues isn't the file path, as it works fine if I paste it in windows explorer.

Forms :: Web Browser Control Inside A Tab Control Display

Jun 18, 2014

I have a form with a tab control, inside the tab control I placed an ActiveX control (Microsoft Web Browser). These are at the bottom of the form.

Everything displays fine if the entire form fit on the screen but if the form is too long and I scroll down the browser control is getting obscured by the tab control and getting chopped off (the contents are covered). It is as if the browser control is staying in space where it was and moving behind the tab control as I scroll.

This problem does not occur if I place the browser control directly on the form. Also I note that the browser control is sitting correctly within the tab control.

I have been through all the settings and properties of both controls and haven't been able to fix it. I searched all over the web but no one has previously stumbled across this one by the look of it.

See the attached image ...

I am using a web browser control on one of my forms The problem is that when I close my application down, after using the form with the wbc, an access process keeps running in the background. More severe: every time I start my app again and close it, another access process is added to the processes that are already running.

Modules & VBA :: Web Browser Control To Navigate A Website That Only Allows One Session At A Time

Oct 16, 2013

I have constructed an application in Access2010 that uses the ActiveX WebBrowser Control.I am using the Web Browser control to navigate a website that only allows one session at a time and normally (if using a regular web browser) if you close the tab you're working on, you have to completely close the browser and reopen it to be able to acces the website again.

I have this application on 2 networks.


A) when using the WebBrowser control I can navigate to the site. But if I need to navigate away or need to log in as a different account on the site, I can close an reopen the form and that will suffice to regain access to the site.

However on PC

B) it will not allow me to navigate back to the site by closing and reopening the form (the website recognises it is not a new session). I have to close the entire database and reopen it to get the site to work again.

I would very much like PC B) to be behaving in the same manner as PC A) so that I do not have to tell users to restart the whole database in order to reaccess the site.

End if

but when the field does the calculation and updates the image is not appearing.

Forms :: Form Control With Iif Statement To Show Specific Records?

Jul 13, 2015

I have a form based on a query in datasheet view. What i would like is to show only those records that fulfill the truepart of iif statment, and do not show the ones that fulfill the false part.

I have the following fileds in the query

currency 1 checkbox
currency 2 checkbox

In the form, the control named month contains the following code:

control source: =IIf([checkbox1]=no;[month];0)

So this gives the appropriate months, but also shows the all other records with a 0 in the month field. I would like to get only the records shown that are correct with the truepart of the statement.

Forms :: Cascading Combo Boxes Don't Show Control Source Value Until Requery

Dec 31, 2013

I have a set of cascading combo boxes. When a value is selected in Cat 1 ID, it narrows down the selections in Cat 2 ID which narrows down the selections in Cat 3 ID.

However, the values don't show up for columns Cat 2 ID or Cat 3 ID until I enter the row. Then I have it set to requery the fields because the underlying data isn't populated. But then when I leave the row, the values go away.

Why doesn't it show the underlying value from the table? Each column is bound to a field in a table - I would assume that the recorded value would show up. Did I miss something easy?

I've attached a picture of exactly what I mean.

Forms :: Requerying Subreport On Tabbed Control - Show Related Data

Jul 4, 2014

I have a form with a tabbed control on it. The tabbed control has 4 tabs that each have a report on them. When I select a company name on the main form, I requery these 4 reports to show data related to that company.

For some strange reason, 2 of my reports requery with no problem, and 2 of them give me a message that the report can't be found. Here is the code:

Private Sub cboCompanyName_AfterUpdate()
On Error GoTo cboCompanyName_AfterUpdate_Err
' DoCmd.SearchForRecord , "", acFirst, "[CompanyID] = " & str(Nz(Screen.ActiveControl, 0))

' After selecting a company, requery the subreports to display the appropriate data

' These 2 work

'These 2 Fail

'Other things I've tried


As a side note, if I chose the company, say "ok" to the error, and then go run the queries that these reports are based on, I get the correct records. Also, if I chose the company and run the 2 failing reports standalone, they work fine, so I know the problem isn't the reports or the queries themselves.

I have also checked and rechecked for any spelling mistakes and have found none. I should mention that the error message is "Programs cannot find the field 'SubrptCompany_Payback' referred to in your expression".

New Field Does Not Show In Control Source For Form Control

May 28, 2015

I have table that I had to add a new field to which we update with a form. I tried to add a control for the new field but the field does not show up in the list for the control source. I am trying to add a list box to the form with a blank and 5 options.

I have attached screen shots of the table design and the form. The table has the field in datasheet view and I have manually entered a few entries in it but it still will not show in the control source for the form control. The top section of the form is where we enter and select the data for the new records. The bottom section (circled in red) autofills the matching record, from separate tables, for updating with the new entries.

I have added form controls for modified fields in the past so I am confused about why this is happening.

Forms :: Unable To Print Web Browser Object

Aug 15, 2014

I have a form that displays a html document in a WebBrowser object. This displays fine on screen but shows up blank when printing the form. Is there any way to get this to appear on the print? I know you can right-click on the object and select "print" to print the contents of the object but ideally I'd like the page to print in the context of the form. Is this possible?

Currency Control Won't Show Dollars

Oct 17, 2005

I have a form with various controls that reflect dollar amounts.

One of those controls, despite deleting and replacing it, despite deleting the field whose value it displays, despite changing it to 'general number', saving, then changing back, despite comparing its properties with that of numerous normal-behaving controls, refuses to show a dollar sign, nor zero cents values. I've compressed and repaired in between deleting fields and controls, too, to no avail.

Otherwise it is working correctly in that calculations based on it work fine and it shows the number of dollars it's supposed to. Just no dollar sign and refuses to show zero cents...

Can anyone suggest to me what's up with this thing?

Making Control Boxes Show 0 If No Records

Aug 17, 2006

I have a form where the records are propulated by ane xpression, which checks and sums database values.

Sometimes, the control boxes are empty as there is no data to sum for a particular record. Is there a way to get the control box to show the value 0 ?

I've tried default's, etc. but that doesn't seem to work...probably because the expression returns a NULL value.

I know it can be done using IIf but that will complicate the formulas even further.
Is there perhaps a way to do it using code instead ?

Tab Control Is Set To Transparent But Background Doesn't Show Through

Aug 31, 2006

I have some tab controls, which for some reason show up white.
I have set their back style to transparent but it doesn't seem to show the grey Windows colour of the background form.
Any ideas why ?

AT the moment I'm having to put grey rectangles in various places to cover this up, which is obviously not ideal.

Modules & VBA :: Control Tip To Show Related Record From Another Table

May 18, 2015

Is it possible to have the control tip show related records from another table?

I've been looking around the internet, and I've seen many examples for showing concatenated fields on current record, but had no luck with what I'm trying to do.

For example.

I have a continuous form, and on it shows top line data. Where a record in this form shows as "Split" it means I have more data related to this record on another table.

Is it possible to show however many fields are related to this record, when I control tip, or mouseover?

I've been playing with

Me.textbox.ControlTipText = Me.textbox

but was wondering, if this is possible, how I'd reference the other table,

If said column of continuous form is "split"...
lookup related table by ID number
show however many columns of data..

I added a new field to one of my tables and query, but when I try to add a control for that field into my form it is not recognising it and the field isn't appearing in the sources for the form, even though the table is sourced to the form? Or am I going to have to do the usual and redo the entire form because I made a minor adjustment?

Web Browser Error - Please Help!

Oct 25, 2007

Hi Folks -

I'm really close at getting what I need done, I just have a small bug.

I have a form with a web browser control in Access 2003.

One text box on the form is for an address.
One text box on the form is for the street.

A command button on the form navigates to a website where I am trying to input the values of the text boxes into the text boxes on the web page.

The following code:

Me.WebBrowser0.Document.All("EnteredAddrNmbr").Value = txtaddr
Me.WebBrowser0.Document.All("EnteredStreetName").Value = txtStreet

This works - but FIRST I get an error 91 on the first line here stating that the Object variable or With block variable is not set. It lets me debug the code as it's running, showing me the highlighted first line in error. I then click the Continue button in the code window and all the rest of the code executes fine.

How do I get past that first error? And why is it letting me continue afterwards without addressing the error?

If I do a On Error Resume Next, it doesn't fill the boxes with data or issue the Click event command.

Thanks for your help in advance!!
