Report crash on closing if height change
Funny problem in Access 2010.
I have a report (in Print Preview). It's got nothing on except 2 subreports in the Details section.
If I change the Height of the subreport in the section's OnFormat event, it works fine, but Access crash when you close the report.
Simething like:
Me.MySubReport.Height = SomeHeight

Changing the height in the OnOpen works fine, but not an option for me


Subform Title Bar Height
Is it possible to alter the height of a subform title bar in datasheet view?

I know the fileds (row height / column width) can be changed simply by dragging them but I don't know how to change the title line.


Change Alternate Row Color
Unlike Excel 2010, which doesn’t offer a direct way to format alternate rows, Access 2010 provides an easy way to format alternate rows to better visibility. To change alternate row color, open the desired database table, and head over Home tab, under Text Formatting group, from Alternate Row Color drop-down list, select a desired one.


Get new ID from the table BEFORE insert the new row.
I'm programming with VB .NET 2010 and using a Microsoft Access Database file which is bound to my project as a Dataset. Now I want to know: BEFORE inserting a new row into my dataset tablewhat will be the new ID number,

Surely you know the autonumber ID of a table is different with row count number, for there may be deleted rows between the table rows. Like the following example:

Row 0: ID=1
Row 1: ID=2
Row 2: ID=4 (ID number 3 is deleted)
Row 3: ID=5
Row 4: ID=9 (ID numbers 6,7,8 are deleted)

Now how do we know what ID number of Row 5 will be before inserting the new row? Perhaps ID numbers 10 and 11 are either deleted or not, so it may be 10, may be 11 or 12 or whatever! Isthere a way to know it BEFORE adding or inserting the new row into the table?


Access 2007 height of controls on form
I have noticed if I try to increase/decrease a controls height it affects all controls.

How do I change just one controls height or width?


Can you lock the "Row Heighht"?
I'm starting to advance into sub queries. For those who may know or not know me or care to understand. I can't physically use my arms/a mouse, therefor I use a head stick/pointer with a touch screen. Often times when I've to either Expand All or Collaspe a in a query I accidently enlarge the Row Height & then I have to set the row height back to standard height -- I'm very anal in having my rows & columns be set a certain way, Sometimes in not being extra careful in draging my stick back/forth accross the screen I quite often having to make adjustments repeatedly. Access has all sorts "controls" & I just thought that it wouldn't hurt to ask


match field size with another
I have a report with 6 fields in a row, I only want one of them to grow or shrink depending on the amount of words in it. What I need is the other fields in the detail section to match the height of that one field. I have tried to set the height property (me.fieldA.height = me.fieldB.height) ive put this in the report open, load, current, the field itself, with no results. I am using borders on it and have also tried to set the border width


Height of page header depending on text field height?!
With VBA I would like to dynamically adapt the height of a report's page header depending on the height of a certain text field, which is expandable. The problem is, even though the field is expandable, I always get the same value for textfieldXY.height, no matter how high it is in report view.

So I guess that the height value doesn't change depending on the displayed contents.

In the end, it's important for me that the detail area below is directly connected to this text field, without any useless space in between.


Auto Adjusting Field Height
I have a report that is used to generate maintenance lists and to act as a checklist list for our fleet section. Each row on the report contains detail from six fields provided to the report from a query.

For most rows in the report the height property for the six fields are the same, based on the fact that the data value in the fields does not force the field to grow.

However in some cases the description field can have up to 200 characters and will force the field to be higher than the other five fields in the same row (refer to attached screen shot).

I was wondering if there is a way that I can tell the fields to grow to the same height as the tallest field.


access2010 will only print one row per page
Our office here has various versions of Windows and Office, our XP Pro machines uses Office 03 or 07, while our Windows 7 machines uses Office 2010.

so anyhow, we have this database in mdb format(which was created with Access 03), and when try to print out a report (print preview) using Access 2010, it outputs only one row(one record) per page.

While the same attempt with the same database using access 03 & 07, I can get as many rows (records) as one page can fit before moving onto the next page.

is this a problem on the setting of Access 2010 or my data base was probably not the most compatible with Access 2010?

Creating a Change Log
I am trying to create a change log in access 2007 so that whenever a record is updated via a form, all of the original values of the table are added to ChangeLog Table, and the changes are then applied to the main table. I have done something similar in access 2010, but some of the functions used are new to 2010 (or maybe it's just the difference in the layout that is confusing me). Can anyone point me in the right direction here?
