Reports :: Using Command Button In A Form To Filter And Open A Report?

Jun 26, 2014

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:

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

Option Compare Database
Private Sub Report_Open(Cancel As Integer)
Me.RecordSource = Me.FName
End Sub

"FilterReport" = Form Button
"Report" = Report
"First Name" = Report Field
"FName" = Form Combo Box

Reports :: Formatting A Report From A Command Button

Aug 21, 2013

What I want to be able to do is have a button next to every client entry which the user can click. Once the button is clicked, I want the "person name" box in the report to be formatted to have a yellow background.The purpose of doing this is so after a couple of days when we come back to the report, we can easily see by the yellow background which people we have to follow up with.

I don't think conditional formatting will work because I have so many different "person names" in the report that it would go above the 3 rule limit, only solution in VBA.The button I created is called "Format", and this is the VBA code I have tried:

Private Sub Format_Click ()
Me.Person_Name.BackColor = vbYellow
End Sub

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.

Forms :: Continuous Form With Command Button On Each Record To Open Another Form

Jul 30, 2014

I have a continuous form in which I put a command button for each record called "detail". I would like to click on the "detail" button and make it open another form containing all (and only) the info on this record.

At first I refused to use an "id" to link both forms, but finally I added the "id" in the table... however still does not work.

continuous form: "04 - GASTOS_BUSQUEDA"
id field on continuous form: "Gastid"

pop-up (details) form: "GASTOS_EDITAR"
id on pop-up (details) form: "editar_id"

This is what I have tried on the "click" properties of the "details" button field (called "btn_editgs"):

DoCmd.OpenForm "GASTOS_EDITAR", acNormal, , "[editar_id] = " & Me.Gastid

DoCmd.OpenForm "GASTOS_EDITAR", , , "[editar_id]=" & Me.Gastid

stLinkCriteria = "[editar_id]=" & Me![Gastid]
DoCmd.OpenForm "GASTOS_EDITAR", , , stLinkCriteria

Private Sub btn_editgs_Click()
On Error GoTo btn_editgs_Click_Err
Dim strWhere As String
strWhere = "[editar_id] = " & Me.Gastid
DoCmd.OpenForm "GASTOS_EDITAR", , , strWhere
Exit Sub
MsgBox Error$
Resume btn_editgs_Click_Exit
End Sub

Open Form Command Button Fills In Text And Date Fields From Previous Form

Apr 27, 2005

I currently have two forms: frmE_SAFind and frmE_SAOrder

frmE_SAFind shows results from a query including fields [txtIDPO] and [dtmDate]
btnOpnFrm 6543 2/1/05
btnOpnFrm 5681 1/1/05

frmE_SAOrder shows order details including [txtIDPO] and [dtmDate]

I have a open form command button set up on [frmE_SAFind] that opens [frmE_SAOrder]. Is it possible for me to modify its properties so that when the open form command button is clicked, the order details in [frmE_SAOrder] will represent the order that the user is selecting via the btnOpnFrm command?

Example: If I click btnOpnFrm for 6543, [frmE_SAOrder] will show me PO 6543 details.

Hopefully I made myself clear enough to understand. Thanks for your help!

Command Button To Open Another Form - Matching Specific Data Fields

Aug 25, 2011

I have a subform in which I want to put in a Command Button to open another form.

I used the wizard as per normal, but when you come to matching specific data fields, there is nothing in my left hand column of the sub form. I have checked the record source property and it is bound to the correct table.

I have read that this is an issue with Access 2007? Is this the case or am I missing something obvious here?

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

Open Report On A Form With A Button

Feb 8, 2005

Good morning All,
I have a form with a command button to open a report ( based on a query ) for the currently displayed record. here is the code I have used:

Private Sub CS_notes_Click()
On Error GoTo Err_CS_notes_Click
Dim stDocName As String

stDocName = "InternalSNwithRMAprodMASData"
DoCmd.OpenReport stDocName, acPreview, , "TLAUnit = " & Me.UnitSN & "'"

Exit Sub

MsgBox Err.Description
Resume Exit_CS_notes_Click

End Sub

I believe this came from this forum sometime. When the button is clicked I receive the error:
"Syntax error (missing operator) in query expression '(TLAUnit = 26712B')'

TLAUnit is the report field, UnitSN is the form field.
Any help with the error?

Reports :: Filter Report From Certain Selections In Form

Jul 30, 2013

My problem I am having is that in my database you can click around to different customers info on forms and from there you can click on a button to get to another form that lists all of the customers vehicles. From there I have a billing report that I created and I am trying to filter the report to get what I want on there.

But now where i am having some issues is that I am also looking to filter by a yes/no field so that anything clicked yes for that customer will be filtered to show on this report.

Reports :: Print Report Based On Filter From Navigation Form

Aug 7, 2013

I am using the Navigation form and I have a tab that has all the sales quotes for a particular salesperson. Because my salespeople like to work with paper I have created sub tabs which contain a report with the same information but filtered based as follows: this Month, this year, and Last year. This report needs to be printable based on the filtered information so I created a print button within the report however when clicked it prints the entire report not the filtered report.

The filter criteria is located in the navigation button, navigation where under the data properties. I have the on click event of the button set to open the report in print preview but I need to know how I filter the where in the macro to read the criteria from the active navigation button property?

Reports :: Filter Multiple Fields In A Report Using Comboboxes In A Form?

Jul 24, 2015

I have a report based on a query that I put inside a form. What I want to do is create 4 comboboxes from which users can choose options that will filter the report without leaving the form or opening the report in a separate window. Also, I want to make the filters dependent on each other, meaning if a select option A on combobox 1, the options i will select on combobox 2 will only be based on the earlier filter on combobox 1 ...

So far I'm able to do at least 2 of the comboboxes to filter the report, but they aren't based on which one was used to filter the report first. So if i filter the records by choosing option A on combobox 1, combobox 2 will still filter every record.

here's my 2 codes so far:

Private Sub cboLocation_AfterUpdate()
On Error GoTo Proc_Error
If IsNull(Me.cboLocation) Then
Me.qrySalesByLocation.Report.Filter = ""
Me.qrySalesByLocation.Report.FilterOn = False


the other 2 comboboxes, I can't apply the same code cause the enter parameter dialog keeps popping out.
