Totally New To Xml

Jun 14, 2005

Whilst on holiday last week I have been reading about the wonders of xml! Following this, one of my clients has forwarded a piece of code that he says is "dead easy" to use!!! erm. Maybe easy for some, but total gobbeldy gook to a layperson like me.

What I would really love to do is understand how to use this to automatically fire data via the web from my database to his

I am assuming that say on line 4 where it says "983", I could substitute this with Me.DealerCode (for exampole?)

Totally Lost

Oct 12, 2006

Howdy all!

I am sorta new to access (I used to use it about 6 years ago, but haven't latly so relearning everything), and I am trying to build a db to track the different projects I make for my webstore ( (

I am trying to make a form that is tabbed so that I can enter in all my base information (different materials {wood, acyrlic, and specials}, clips, platings, etc..) into my different tables, but for the life of me I can't seem to get anything to work.

I really just want 1 tab per item, so 1 tab for clips that would enable me to enter in all the different clips into my clips table. I can't seem to get a connection of any sort to work and was wondering if anyone had any advice or guidence on what to do?

Thank you!

Help, Should Be Easy But Totally Lost.

May 6, 2005

ok i no hardly anything about forms, searched the forum no luck.

i have a number of fields in a mainform (created through a wizard) i have no discovered that i have run out of room on the page (Detail Page i think)

so i would likr to add a another page/form within the mainform.

not sure how to go about it, i created a subform but cannot seem to transfer any information to it. i tried copy and paste but this eturns script errors.

i could be going about this the totally wrong way but i dont know.

so what i am trying to do is create a nother form/subform in the mainform (detail) page if that makes any sense

This May Sound Stupid

Jan 7, 2006

Ladies and Gents

I am wondering if when i run my report is there anyway that the detail of the report can become objects that say i could drag and drop into a Word Doc for example. I am trying to create a tool that will allow me to see all jobs from our maintenance mangement system at work, i have managed to achieve this but i was wanting to be able to view the jobs on a report and then basically just drag them into something else and wahey i have built my plan for the week.

Maybe i am hoping for to much but i though i would ask anyway.

My God, Am I This Stupid? :) Newbie Yes But Still..

Mar 2, 2006

Evening folks :)

Been trying to find this on google for a while, but am not really sure about how to express my self in few words (being the norwegian that I am) so I turn to you for help! :)

Im having two tables which I want to join into one with a query.

I want to keep all data in table 1 and suplement it with info from table 2. Should be easy enough, at least thats what i thought. Cant get it to work here so if anybody can help me out i would be EXTREMELY grateful :)

Table 1:

Table 2:

Connected by artnr
Table 1 has approx 1500 lines and Table 2 has approx 2100. I want to keep all lines in table 1 and suplement that one with info from table 2, but I end up with a query with approx 1200 lines.
Table 1 does contain 'artnr' that Table 2 doesn't have and vica versa so I assume that the ay i do it I end up with the query only with the ones that has the same 'artnr' in both tables. Still my question is:

How can I keep all info in Table 1 and only suplement with info from Table 2?

hmm.. I agree, not the best way to put things, but it's the best a tired norwegian could do at the end of the day.. :)

All immediate help would be great!

I have not used queries or Access for a few years. I have a query set up to search for a tag number which the user enters in. How do I incorporate the * function in with it? This is what i have tried:
SELECT * From Bags_Recieved WHERE Tag_No = *" & [Which Tag?] & "*

I am trying to get it so the user just has to enter in a few numbers in case they do not know the whole number.

Stupid Question

Jul 5, 2005

Hi guys,

I have a bit of an embarrasing question, as I`m sure that this is so easy to solve, but its just beyond me...
I have searched but dont get exactly what I`m looking for, looked in all my books to no avail !!!!!

I have a form, which had many data in it.
I have a particualr feild "cust_ref" which is sorted A-Z (asscending)
How would I change this to Z-A (descending)
I have done all the changes in my tables, queries etc, but this doesnt effect the form..
I also have the same problem in one of my reports....

Im sure its really simple, but I think i`m over complicating the solution, and its now giving me a really bad headache.

Thanks guys.

Sorry For The Stupid Question

Dec 11, 2006

hi everyone, i'm new and almost clueless with all things asp, html and access. i know this is a bad start, but i'd really appreciate some help.

i'm doing a project with a group, we're constructing a website and i'm stuck with my part, a 'staff home page'.

basically what i'm stuck with is:

- writing the code to request the latest 5 orders from our database, and put these in a table.

- linking my drop down menus, which are in the same table, to change the status of each order

- linking my update button to the database in order to send this information from the drop down menus, and update customer orders.

apologies if i haven't worded that very well, or if the answers can already be found on the board. any help would be greatly appreciated.

thank you

Stupid Message Box Question

Feb 21, 2006

I'm currently trying to get a button working that will check the contents of a field for a value, and if nothing is selected I want it to prompt the user to select something. Here's my code:

Private Sub Command47_Click()

Dim stDocName As String
Dim stLinkCriteria As String

stDocName = "frmCustomerInf"
stLinkCriteria = "[CustomerID]=" & Me![CustomerID]

If [CustomerID] = "" Then
MsgBox "Please Select a Company Name", vbInformation, "Warning"
DoCmd.OpenForm stDocName, , , stLinkCriteria
End If

End Sub

For some reason I can't get this working, what am I doing wrong?

The error I'm getting when trying the button is Run-time error 3075: Syntax Error (Missing operator) in query expression '[CustomerID]='

My Stupid Loop Idea

Jul 6, 2006

I've got 20 checkboxes which i need to do the same thing but individually.

If IsNull(DLookup("[question 1]", "qryQuestions")) Then
chkQuestion1.Visible = False
chkQuestion1.Visible = True
End If

I tried this:

Dim loopy As Integer
Dim tmpquest As String

For loopy = 1 To 20
tmpquest = "question " & loopy
tmpCheck = "chkQuestion" & loopy
If IsNull(DLookup(tmpquest, "qryQuestions")) Then
tmpCheck.Visible = False
tmpCheck.Visible = True
End If
Next loopy

tmpquest works.
tmpcheck doesn't.

I tried dimming tmpcheck as lots of things but no luck.

Any help?

Stupid Newbie Question

Nov 4, 2004

New to Access and learning quickly, but some things just throw me.

I have a database that adds rows to a table as certain command buttons are selected. It frustrates some of the users because every time they click the button, a warning comes up, "You are about to append 1 row(s). Once you click "Yes".... and on and on.

What's the easiest way to remove this notification?

I Thought It Was Simple(subformStuff) But Maybe Im Just Stupid.

Feb 15, 2005

Ive got a form, that has inputs to a table, and it also has 2 subforms that link to another table, the subforms are different forms but they link to the same table, this is bacause I need to be able to enter two different items off the table that may be different items, the reason Ive used subforms is because there is the need to have the part number for the item, as well as the weight, this will be a growing list as the Dbase expands.
now I have the two subforms with a combobox for part number, and the weight field looks up because of the combo,

back on the main form I need a entry that adds up the 2 weight fields, and enters them on the main table that the main form writes data to, can someone help?

Ive been heatbutting my monitor for a week or two now, and my limited know how on Access is beginning to show :-)

Stupid Question: Autonumber, Legacy Data

Jan 29, 2008

version: access 2000.

OK, i have what may be a fantastically stupid question. i did a search ( on this and didn't find anything that seemd to address it.

my issue: autonumber field, sole primary key. i am adapting a legacy (non-access) db into access. it was originally an autonumber field but during import, the data type was set to number and of course, i cannot convert it back now into autonumber.

i already duped the PK field as an autonumber and tried an update query to "correct" the autonumbering PK field as i believe is suggested here ( but it won't permit me to do this.

b/c it's legacy data, i want to preserve the original values in the autonumber, but am unclear on what next steps might be available to me.

thoughts, anyone?
