Auto Update Date Field In Table

Unbound checkbox's that update
Is there a way to setup checkbox's that are unbound but update based off whether a field has a date in it or not? The idea is it auto updates a checklist on the right that shows the correct order to do something but the left where the date is at is split up by who's responsible to do what. Just want to show a check mark if there is a date in the field. If the field is null then the check box is unmarked. Auto both ways soon as the field updates. Thoughts on how to do this


Auto date update
New in Ms Access and working on a database. I'm having a problem with date fields that I would like to automatically update to current date each time I open my database.I have used the Now expression as my default value thinkg it will work. Unfortunately the date doesn't auto update rather it remains the same.


Date in continuous form
I have a table, and form that are going to be used as a call log. The form will be continuous for a month and then we will run a query to delete old calls.

The table has a hidden field for date. I would like this field auto populated which I am able to do. The problem I am running into is 3rd shift 11p -7a. I would the like the field to auto populate with the previous date until 7am then start to use the new date.


Adding new fields
I have a database that includes the table structure shown in my attachment.

1. If I add a field called Date_Further_Info_Reqd, then is it possible to auto generate a date in this field if the Review_Status field value = Require Further Information? (Note if theReview Status field is changed later, then the Date_Further_Info_Reqd date must remain unchanged.

2. If I add a field called Date_Completed, is it possible to auto generate a date in this field if the Review_Status field value = Complete?

3. If I add a Y/N field called Watchlist, is it possible to auto generate a date in a field called Watch_Date when the Watchlist field = Y?


Update date field
I have a date field in a form called Activity Date. I wish to have it update the associated table field to todays date() when ever it is opened. It will show the correct date on the form but not update the table field. I'm sure I'm missing something simple but can't figure it out.


Auto update field with Today's date when open the database
I am using a database to merge information into Word documents. These Word documents have dates that need to be dependent on the current date. I was able to make a field in my table for "today's date", but I need it to automatically update to today's date in my table each time I open the database, in order for the other dates to merge correctly.

I have used "=Date()" for the default value for that field, but it only updates new records with the current date.

How do I get the 1200 records to update with today's date automatically?


Calculations
Let me start by saying I do not know how to use SQL or VB so all I am doing is within Access itself.

I have a Membership Database created in Access. The main table, Members Table, includes a field for Next Renewal. The Next Renewal Date should be one year from the last membership update. To date, the end user has been putting the Next Renewal in manually. What I want to do is to have it auto-entered by the program by writing a calculation that basically says =([LastUpdate]+365 and automatically posts the answer into the Next Renewal field.

Now, I know I cannot do calculations in a table, but I can in a form. So I wrote the calculation in the form, but when entries are made on the form that should update in the table, the Next Renewal field shows blank in the table.

I need that field in the table because I have to run a query based on the Next Renewal and I can't run a query based on a form field.

Can what I wish to do be done? How would I go about it

auto generated unique reference ID
In one of the fields of a table I need to auto generate a unique reference ID using a combination of letters, numbers and information from another field. For example: ABC-DE000-FG-00/00/00 (auto number) (information from other field (Date)).

I can do the first bit (ABC-DE001-FG-) but Im unable to find a way to get the information from another field (Date) to the end of this auto generated unique reference ID.


Forms and fields
I'm fairly new to Access | and I've built a form with a single table. It's a very simple form.

I’m trying to auto-populate a field in the form based on another field. For instance, I have a field named “Date seen” (which is manually filled in) and another field named “Due Date”. I’m trying to auto-populate the “Due Date” field so that it auto-populates with a date exactly 6 years after the “Date Seen” field.


Macro to update fields on open?
I want my database to update field in a table each time the database is opened.

The field in the table that I want to update is today's date: so that if I open the database today, it will be 12th October, if I open it tomorrow, it will change to 13th Oct?

Can I create a macro to do this or do I need to do something to the field itself? at the moment the default value is Now(). But once it is entered - it stays as is.

Also - to further complicate matters, I don't want the field to update where someone has actually gone in a typed a date in? (The field is supposed to contain the current date, until a user puts an "end date" in


Auto Populated Field not Saving to Table
I have a form that we are going to use to track outages to our terminals. On the form, the user selects the terminal # and the rest of the information for the terminal auto populates from a query of the terminals table (Terminal name, address, etc). What I am using to auto populate fields is =[Term #].Column(1) for the first field and so on. They then enter the rest of the info (date of outage,etc). The issue I have is that when I look at the table for the outages, the auto populated fields are blank. Is there a way to save this data to the table


VBA Code to auto update a field in another table?
Is there a VBA code that can automatically update the same fields in other related tables, for example when the user selects a 'shop' in the front page survey, this response auto updates to other tables (just that field)? eg attached as an after update on the home page submit button?

I have tried the append query, and I don't think that is as user friendly or as professional as a vba code would be (updating quietly in the background) as there is around 10 tables to update?


Appending Records with a desired auto number in a table with Auto Number
Here is my issue. In a table with an Auto Number index some records have been deleted. I have been able to recreate them along with their original auto number. The problem is that I do not know how to append these records forcing the original auto number. I have tried changing the auto number field to a number field in the table, this works except I cannot change it back to auto number.

I am sure Im not the first with this question or issue. I did search through a couple hundred entries about auto number before I posted this question


cannot update date in table
I have a table having one date field formatted as short date "15.12.2011", and on a form text box formatted as short date format. When I click on text box calendar appears and I choose proper date, but when I want to update date in table via query it returns error.
My query looks like:
CurrentDb.Execute ("UPDATE category SET date=" & Forms![main form]!txtDate.Value)
I don't see anything wrong but it keeps me returning error

And If I use US format update works but with date

How can the date update itself?
I have a case study which is about a news agency they wanna build up a information system for thir delivery booking.

When I start using access, I have created 3 tables, which are : customers table, publication table and delivery table.

In the delivery table, I have sat Client ID, Publication ID and Delivery date. and my ID numbers are builded a relationship with my other table.

The problem is, The delivery booking is based on the day, not date. and im trying to do it as date, for January 2012, like a month booking. However, when I am trying to enter the date, by then I can not enter more then 1 date in the field, and also, anyone know a better way that the table could update it itself. for example, if I want the data update to Feburary 2012, Any other better way I dont need to enter all the date in again.

This is what happening on my access
