Access 2010 Navigation Forms

Split Forms
I’m new to both the Navigation Forms & Split Forms in Access 2010, but I can see that there is a lot to be gained from their use. What I could do with is some advice as to whether a split form can run in a navigation form? From my experience when I linked a split form into a navigation form it rendered as a single data entry form, however it still continued to work properly as a split form when called from the navigation pane.


Show All System Objects In Navigation Bar
Navigation Bar carries all the important elements of Access 2010 database. Since it lists down all the created forms, reports, queries, etc., you may want to tweak with its several viewing options. By default, Access 2010 doesn’t show system objects, however, you can enable them from Navigation Options.


Help with access 2010 Navigation form print button
I have been assigned a task at work that involves recording, tracking and managing assets and the calibration intervals. I am very new to access and basically self taught with the help of some great forums.

I have encountered an issue with one of my navigation forms and would like some insight. I have created a navigation form that shows a list of reports I have created. In the navigation report I would like to have a print button that only prints the selected report.

It seems that access 2010 allows you to generate a print button, but wants you to designate it to one report.

Is there a way that I can make a print button print only the report, and only the report that is selected on the navigation form.


Navigation Form control syntax 2010
I have a load of forms that now have been put into navigation forms using Access 2010 wizard. I know have found that most of the controls such as cascading comboboxes don't work and other comboboxes ask me for the parameter values when I open the form. I am unsure of the syntax for referning to these as I know the navigation forms are subforms and sonme of the comboboxes are in subforms themselves. I have as an example a combobox (cmboDepartmentID) that is asking me for the parameters whenever I open the formEvent ( through the navigation menu) this then has an unbound combox (cmboSubteamSF) on a subform (SubFormSubTeam). I have tried to work out the new reference but it isn't working so far I have as requery on the cmboDepartmentID:
Forms!frmMainNavigation!NavigationSubForm!Form!Sub formSubTeam.Form!cmboSubTeamSF.Requery but this doesn't requery and the combobox is blank. Can anyone point me in the right direction please


Access 2010 Web Form with regular Tab control ?
Are Tab controls of any use in Access 2010 Web Forms? In web forms the tab change doesn't appear to expose any properties to know what tab was selected. I tried using the navigation control first but didn't want to always requery my main page automatically as the navigation control does.


Access 2010 - Navigation Forms (how to reference a control)
I love the new navigation form functionality in Access 2010, however am having problems referencing a control within the subforms.

I have 10 navigation buttons on the parent form, each with a subform. I desparately need to be able to reference controls within each subform, however am struggling with the syntax.

I have tried the following code:
[Forms]![frmParentform]![frmNavigationsubform].[form].[cboControl]
which works beautifully for the first subform (ie. Tab Index = 0)

However, I am stumped as how to reference a control on any of the other 9 subforms (ie Tab Index - 1-8) as the aforementioned syntax doesn't work for any of them but the first (ie Tab Index


Restrict user to navigation form
I have a database in Access 2010 where I've created a navigation form, and I want a regular user opening the database to enter a password and only have access to that form, and not the actual tables or the navigation pane.

They should only be able to view, add, edit, and delete data through the forms I've prepared, and I don't want them to be able to get to the tables themselves unless they have an admin password.

I tried looking up how to dosomething like this, and I tried splitting the database, but it seemed like I was still able to go right to the tables and edit them from the navigation pane even in the front-end, and ifI removed the navigation pane links to the tables from the front-end, the forms I made wouldn't be able to display anything from them anymore, and that's not what I want either.

So, I want one password to give access only to my navigation form and nothing else, and then a second password to grant access to everything else.


Works with Navigation forms as Master/Child Forms
I would like to Use Navigation forms as form/subform.

I have a navigation form which is bound to a recordset and in the header I display some information about the selected client. I would like to synchonize the included "subforms" with the dataset in the header of my navigation form.

I did'nt find any built-in possibility. will I need to filter manually every forms included in my navigation forms ? Or does it exist an easier way


What is switchboard
A Switchboard is a type of form that displays a menu of items that a user can click on to launch data entry forms, reports, queries and other actions in the database. A switchboard is typically created after all of the forms and reports for a database application have been completed. It can be used to guide the user to an appropriate set of forms and reports.
Note that starting with Access 2010, Switchboards are not available by default (you will need to add this to the ribbon bar manually using the Options). Access 2010 now makes use of the Navigation Forms


Navigation Forms
Is it possible to add queries onto your Navigation Form? I am trying to create a Navigation Form in 2010 version (and I had just got the hang of the old switchboard), but it would appear that I can only add forms and reports.

However most of the reports are based on queries so would like to be able to have 3 tiers, 1) the Form, 2) the Query and 3) the Report.

Multiple Navigation Forms using a Single Form
I have a DB where I'm using multiple variations of a navigation form based on user roles, in this case I am tracking rooms where employees are located. These navigation forms point back to the same form (used for looking up room information and creating reports), which has controls that are referenced by a query (which supply data for reports).

I would like to be able to use the same query with every navigation form.

Currently, I am able to get the query to function using or statements using paths to the control on the form passing through each of the Navigation forms.

but I get prompted for data in the same field on the other navigation form before I can get to the report that is intended to be retrieved.

For example:


Banish the Access 2010 Navigation Pane!
I've been writing and developing Access applications starting with Access 97. I was recently "upgraded" from Access 2003 to Access 2010, and I've got a nagging, persistent issue with the user interface:

I depend on forms, menus, etc. to hide the underlying tables, queries, reports, etc. from the end user. Up until A2010 I could set things so that these things were not shown. With A2010 it seems to be different.

While the application starts up "normally", showing my startup form, when the application imports a table -- either from another Access MDB file or a dBase file --the @)!*(%$ Navigation Pane pops up on the left-hand side of the screen, showing the stuff end-users should not be exposed to!

How can the Navigation Pane be taught to behave itself, and NOT crash the party like an uninvited guest?


Access 2010 DAO Recordsets with navigation
I am trying to learn DAO and recordsets for unbound forms and such. Does anyone have a working sample of how the navigation buttons and record count work with this? I have searched articles for several days now and cant find any sample db's or such. Would really apriciate it


How to Reference Navigation Subform Objects
I have an Access 2010 database with a navigation subform, but I'm never quite sure how to reference objects in other forms contained with the Navigation Subform. Please help!

For example, if:

frmMain = main form
NavigationSubform = navigation subform container
frmEmployees = form contained within NavigationSubform

How do you reference the following objects in frmEmployees?

-- a form control
-- the form object itself to support a method
-- a subform with frmEmployees

Here are my best guesses, but I don't think these are correct:

Form control: Forms!frmMain!NavigationSubform!frmEmployees.Form! txtEmployeeID

Form itself: Forms!frmMain!NavigationSubform!frmEmployees.Form. Requery

Subform: Forms!frmMain!NavigationSubform!frmEmployees!subfr mPayments.Form.Recordsource


Toggle Main Access 2010 Navigation Pane Off/On [Hotkey]
Since main navigation bar containing your database elements takes much space on screen, Access 2010 lets user quickly hide/unhide it through a simple hotkey combination.


a2010 : Reference an object (another standalone form, for example) from a Navigation Form
I have this problem with Access 2010:

Thre is a Navigation Form, I use to register a sequence od data . On one of the navigation subforms, I select data from a a table, and if the data I need does't exist I need:

1. open the aother form (pop-up over the NavigationForm),
2. close the form and continue with the NavForm.

Forms![FILE_CUST].[SendWho]=Me.Name
DoCmd.OpenForm "FILE_CUST"

But with the NavForm I get the Messag:

Application cannot find the referenced form 'FILE_CUST', and stops at the line:
Forms![FILE_CUST].[SendWho]=Me.Name

Is there a way to resolve this?
