Access 2007 Database Properties

I have a split database for tracking help desk issues. The front-end exists on several desktops. The back-end resides on a shared network drive. To do some testing I wanted to move both parts to my personal network drive, then change the database properties if possible to recognize one another. Tried the obvious w/o any success.

and if so, how can I connect or relate the two ends in the new location?

How to Change Form Properties in Access 2007
Form properties in Access 2007 determine a form's characteristics. The controls and sections on a form also have properties that determine the appearance, behavior and structure of that control and the data it contains. Form properties may be set with the property sheet. The following steps will show how to accomplish this in Access 2007.


Cant see properties sheet in ACCESS 2007
I got a database using ACCESS 2007 and added an instruction to macro autoexec to hide menubars when opening. It worked OK!

I also have a backup without that instruction to be used for future corrections of the database.

The problem is: I cant open the properties sheet in the backup to make the changes I want to do. Could you please indicate the origen of such and the way to correct it?

Access 2007 - Property Sheet
I just got Access 2007 on my computer and for some reason, it will not allow me to view the properties for a field, much less a form or report. I have right clicked on it and selected Properties.

I have gone to the Design tab and clicked on Property Sheet. Either way I do it, nothing happens. How can I get to the properties for my form?


Split database & Multiusers
I've split my database to have 2-3 users access it at the same time over a network.

The properties of the FE & BE are on shared but when I want to open a second copy of the FE it says that my BE is currently being used by another. All locks are set to none.

Using Access 2007. The one person that is using it continually adds reccord. The others are mostly wanting to use the search form.

Are there any other properties that I've missed?


Import an Access 2.0 database into an Access 2007 file
If you use an existing database in the Access 2.0 format (.mdb), you can import tables, queries, and macros from that database into a Microsoft Office Access 2007 database (.accdb).
To import forms, reports, or modules into Office Access 2007, you must first convert the database by using an earlier version of Access, open the database in Access 2007, and then convert the database into the Access 2007 database format.
The following sections in this article explain how to perform each of these tasks.
What do you want to do?
* Open an Access 2.0 database in Access 2007
* Import data from an Access 2.0 database
* Convert an Access 2.0 database by using Access 2003, Access 2002, or Access 2000


Custom Database Properties
Often you get the situation where you want to store a single item of data in the database, eg an Author Name, a version, a language selection. The most usual way to do this is to define a global const in a module. This has two problems, it is not updatable, and it is not easily accessible from outside the database. A better solution is to make use of database properties. Learn how to create custom properties on the objects in a Microsoft Access database.


How to read Database Properties
in the MS Access 2007, under menu File -> Database Properties -> Custom tab, I added some custom properties (say 'Source')

It says "Property not found"

I am trying to create custom property for data source and out, so I use these to dynamically change when file path changes too

Access 2007 form different color on different pc
I have access 2007 database with tabbed forms. On my pc the forms appear pale/white background, the back stlye is set to normal.

When I open the database on a different pc, the back stlye is normal but it appears as dark grey. I have the same problem with command buttons - completing changing the look and feel of the forms

Both PCs have full install of Access 2007, and when I compare Access Options of current database, they both have the same settings. Also note both have "use windows themed controls on forms" enabled.

.mdb on network, can form properties be set for individual users?
I am running MS Access 2007. If I have an access application running on a network can I control the read/write access for the data by setting the form properties to yes or no for "Allow Additions", "Allow Deletions" & "Allow Edits" based on the user's login? Not sure how access would handle the form properties if it is on the networkand shared.

If one user is logged in and has 'read only' access and I set these form properties to 'No', then another user logs in, can I set these same form properties to 'Yes' for thisuser independently of what has been set for the other user?

Access 2007 crashes on the network
Our Access 2007 database is constantly crashing on the network. The database has a 2007 shell linked to 2007 data tables on the same drive. Network has 1200 pcs and about 120 users - shell is about 120mb. Our repair involves copying a clean master shell - relinking to the data tables - creating a new shortcut and deploying the new shortcut across the network. This database was running last year OK in Access 2000 - in the summer the network was upgraded to Access 2007 and our problems started. At first the database was still in Access 2000 so we converted it to 2007 - still the same problem - next we rebuilt the database in 2007 by importing the objects from the 2000 database - stil we are having the same problem. Is it being caused by a rogue installation or 2 of Access 2007 ? When the database goes down it automatically creates a backup of the shell so we know when a problem has occurred. Any suggestions would be most welcome


how to set form properties in vba access 2007
I have to work on something in access and I am use to VB.net. In a VB winform I can have something like this

Private m_Firstname As String
Public Property Firstname
.
End Property

and when you want to set this before your form opens you just:

Dim f as new frmSomeForm
f.Firstname = "raz"
f.Show

This doesn't seem to work the same way in Access 2007. I am able to make properties basically the same way, but I am stuck when I open the form. I can instantiate a form the same way but I have no access to .Open, and .Show etc when I do a

Dim f as myForm

I found that I have to open forms with DoCmd.OpenForm()

that works but I can't assign values to my own properties.

I've clearly missed something but I can't figure out how to word my question to the Googles.

Access 2007 db forms not working in Access 2010
I created a db in Access 2007. I have a form that opens when the database opens. Then a button that opens another form. In Access 2010 the first form opens fine.

The second form opens but none of the controls are visible. I have checked the properties and all controls are set to visible.

Another issue with the same database. The first form is set to open with all controls locked to prevent accidental data changes. There is a button linked to a macro to unlock the controls for editing. The button works fine in 2007 but does not work in 2010.
