Use An Option Button On A Form To Select An Alternate Input Mask
Sep 25, 2006
I can create a customized Input Mask, however there are two possible structures that the data may take. I think that this should be doable by the use of two fields, if it can be done with one field it would be preferable for searching options. If I have to use two fields there would only be one or the other used for each record so I would prefer to have the unused field inhibited. Either way the code work is beyond my present ability, any assistance would be appreciated.
Hi, Asked this one yesterday but I think I must be doing somthing wrong. I have a main form named "Techdata" on this form I have an option group with 2 option buttons. I would like when selecting the first option button for the subform "effectivity" to show up on the main form. When the second button is selected I would like the subform "effectivity single" to show up in the same place where "effectivity" was(would like effectivity to be invisable then). Can anyone walk me through this from whoa to go as Im havn a lil bitta trouble
I have a form that acts as a filter/search engine -- it inputs criteria into a query, then opens a report based on the criteria/query. One of the criteria options is "Supplier Number", which is to be entered into an unbound text box.
All of our suppliers have 10 digits, usually in this format: A123400000 (i.e. First character is either a Letter or digit, followed by four or five digits, then followed by four or five zeros)
Our system works with ten digit numbers, while the people in the dept are used to just typing in "A1234" assuming the zeros are irrelevant.
How do I create a validation rule or input mask where a user can simply type "A1234", then it will return zeros for the remaining of the ten required characters?
I realize the usual response to these type of simple question is "Search the Threads", but I have done so already and still don't have an answer!
I want to use input mask in my email field i.e the @ must be present but i must be allowed to input values or numbers before and after the @. This did not worked because i have fixed the values: ????@???? thanks
let's say i have a field, in which i store and identity card number. This number may consist up to 7 digits (of which 3 are mandatory) plus 1 letter (mandatory) at the end. Thus a valid identity card number may be the following: 1234567M, 123M
Eventually, since the field must always contain a letter, i set the data type to Text with field size of 8 ... and i set the inout mask as follows:
9999000L (since the first 4 digits are mandatory). With this input mask, if i have an ID Number of 123M, i have to input it as 0000123M.
Although, I would like to have the leading zeros, is it possible that during data entry time, i would simply type 123M, and i will get the zeros automatically, after the field loses the focus, rather than having to type them myself ?
I am trying to create an input mask for a name field. I have Spanish names with two last names separated by a hyphen, a comma after the two last names, a space, and then the First Name a space and the Middle Name. The First Last Name needs to be in all capitals like the example. Example: NARANJO-Ramirez, Jose Luis
Can someone please help me format this mask. One trick is that there aren't always middle names. Since all parts of the name are different lenghts for everybody, I need to have an optional number of characters for each of the four parts of the name.
I have a text box on a form that holds a grid reference, (2 letters and 6 numbers). I have set the box up with an input mask, (>LL000000;0;_). Is there a way that when the user clicks in the box that the cursor will go to the start of the box. At present it goes wherever they click in the box. If they dont notice then the machine starts beeping at them, most annoying!
I have a text box that has an Input Mask setup. The box is format to be ##-### (00-000;0;). My problem is, when the user clicks in the box it does not start at the beginning, it starts where ever the user clicks inside the box. Is there way to for when you click inside the box it automatically starts at the beginning?

I have a table that I copy into daily from a shared Excel spreadsheet. I am trying to minimize the amount of touching up the data needs. What input mask should I use so that a field with four numbers...1234 (for example) will be converted to a nine-digit number with leading zeros (000001234) when the data is imported. I would like the nine-digit number to be saved.
Also, is there a way to have a date field import the date only & ignore any text?
Hiya everyone, I'm try to do a database for items with part numbers. & I want to be able to set the field to only accept data which has two letters at the begining, but any other characters after that (no fixed size).
ie. part num1: pn047589sdf8m3 part num2: pn6583 part num3: pnfdgmj5973m part num4: pn-fdgmj-5973m
Is this possible to do?
Cos all I can do at the moment, is to put a fixed number of characters. ie. is the field size is 30characters then I'd have to do this: >LLCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCC
but this isn't good.
I just need something like: >LL*
* mean any character for as many characters in length.
I am working on a membership database that only has members from Canada and the United States. In the zipcode field, is it better to have two seaparate fields or is there an input mask that can handle both US and Canadian zip codes.
I have a number field that has three groups of 3 numbers: 123 456 789 or 12 345 678 (8 numbers). When there are only 8 numbers I need to have the first group of number contain 2 numbers and the other two groups to have the other six numbers. If my input mask filled from the right it would solve my problem if the mask was 900 000 000 (filled from the right) but I can't seem to figure this out. Your help is greatly appreciated.
Can anyone tell me how I can format my access tables with multiple input masks under one field?
In my table I have formatted my telephone numbers so that they read (xxx) xxx-xxxx which suits our predominantly UK based business telephone numbers, however we also have a lot of Irish numbers which follow a different configuration e.g. (xxxxx) xxxx-xxxx - how can I add this second input mask so that both formats are recognised within the same column/ field?
Is it possible to set up an input mask for a form for a surname field so that names will show first letter of name as a capital (easy), as in Smith - but for names like O'Connor, show the first and second letters as capitals? (and, of course, allow the ' to be entered). Thanks.
