Combo Box Filter
I am using a combobox filter on a mainform which has a subform.

I need to populate a combobox filter on a subform based on what is selected on a filter combobox on my mainform but no matter what I try I can't seem to get this to work.

I can populate the combobox filter on the subform using a normal combobox on that same form but can't populate the combobox filter on the subform using the filter on the main form.

I am aware that there is different syntax used to access a control on a subform and am 100% sure my syntax is perfect.


Dynamically set the row source of a combobox???
I have a combobox filter on a mainform. I have a combobox filter on a subform - the values of which are derived from a hard coded query.

Is it possible to change the row source of the subform combo based on what is clicked on in the mainform combobox filter? I also want to be able to clear the combo's rowsource completely - when add new record is clicked.

Combobox to filter report
I have a report based on a query. I have a form with a combobox(Combo5) that lists all the customers that have been entered tickets into our system.

All I want is to select a customer from the combobox, click the cmd button(CustomerSearchCommand) and have the report (CustomerSearchRa) filter the report to the value in the combobox(combo5)

In trying different things I've gotten confused on what my original code was for this command button.


Filter by comboBox value
I'm working a form with filter by comboBox, my purpose is that after the comboBox updated, the form will show related data. See attached picutre, the code I wrote is

Private Sub Combo9_AfterUpdate()
Form.filter = "RepairID = '" & Me.Combo9.Value & "'"
Form.FilterOn = True

End Sub

There's something wrong, the filter did not work.
Could somebody give me some suggestion?


Form ComboBox Filter - Select ALL records
I'm trying to filter records on a form with a ComboBox, and I want the option to return ALL records.
My Form is: frmReview
My ComboBox is: cmbGLimpact
The RowSource is: SELECT DISTINCT [GLimpact] FROM Initiatives UNION SELECT Null As AllChoice FROM Initiatives ORDER BY [GLimpact] DESC;
The Query Criteria is: [Forms]![frmReview]![GLimpact]
The field values are: Yes, No & TBD

The filter works fine for Yes, No & TBD, but the blank choice doesn't return all records.

I need to be able to setup several filter ComboBoxes to enable filtering on several different fields. So, depending on which ComboBox filter (field) the user wants to filter on, the otherswill allow all records to be returned.

Filter subForm comboBox based on main form combobox selection - SAMPLE ATTACHED
Here is my problem. I am trying to filter a combobox on a subform based on a combobox on my main form.

Filter forms values with a combobox
Ive got a combobox in a form and I would like to filter the records displayed on it by selecting one value on the combo.
Ive tried many ways:

A macro with the apply filter option
Vba code with recorset filter

And nothing seems to work. Right now, the combo filters the records displayed in the forms combos, not the records shown in the form. I really dont know how to do it. Any idea?


Filter Combobox using VB to display ID and first & last name?
I have a trio of combo box filters that filter a form. The rowsource for the first is defined. The code for the first (in afterupdate) works lovely. Using a union select function.

the second combo box rowsource is determined by the results of the first combobox. the code for the second box then determines the data to populate the third combobox. but this is where my problem is.

the third combobox is an id box. it's displaying the id number just fine, but I'd like it to also display the first & last name (in one column) of the user. Here's the code for the second combo box (that sets up the data for the 3rd) **see red text:

(2nd combobox code)

[CODE]

So. basically what I need to know is how to have the 3rd combobox (still being populated by the selection of the second) to display both the OwnerID, and the first & last name (in one column). .


Filtering fields on a form with a combobox
Please can someone tell me how I can create a form with a combobox that causes certain fields in an associated subform to be hidden?

I know how to filter records in the subform using a query based on the combobox, but not how to filter the fields themselves.

I have a table like this:

Name Mo1 Mo2 Tu1 Tu2 We1 We2 Th1 Th2 Fr1 Fr2

For each name, a record can be marked as 'absent' or 'present' in the other fields.

I want a combobox that lists the days of the week, and if eg Monday is selected, the subform displays this:

Name Mo1 Mo2

(for each record)


filters on a form
I have a form with several fields and am trying to use comboboxes as filter. The ControlSources for the comboboxes are the field from the table.

It is easy with one filter. I just set the filter and then filter on

When there are two filters it gets more difficult. I can filter the form by checking if the filter is empty and if it is setting it to the combobox selection and then turning the filter onand if it isn't empty setting the filter to the existing filter "AND" the new filter.

But I run into two problems :-

1) After the first filter I can't get the other comboboxes to only hold the values of the filtered dataset

2) If I then re-filter on the same field it gives no results as it is trying to look at the first filter "AND" the second one which gives a resulting empty dataset

Filter or FindRecord in Split Form
I'm trying to use a unbound combobox with a ID and Name field (only displaying name) on a split form that will apply a filter or use findrecord in the afterupdate event of the combobox to go to the record in the split form selected by the combo box. Findrecord wasn't working, so I tried filter using this code:

Private Sub Combo11_AfterUpdate()
Me.Filter = "Supervisor_ID=" & Me.Combo11 & ""
Me.FilterOn = True End Sub

But it prompts for the supervisor ID, even though the code shows that the value passed should be correct. If I manually enter the ID in the prompt, the filter applies as how I was expecting the code would work. Any insight

Combobox Filter to display value specific data
I am setting up a simple form to log our backup results. My subform contains all of the data regarding the backup results. What I want is to have the combobox on the main form filter out the data by server, so that when I click "Server42" it will show all the entries for Server42.

I would also like to have button filters on the main form to filter out the months but this is not as important at the moment.


Filter By Form Report (combobox issue)
I am using this help page to create a report based of my filter by form.

when I apply the filter to the form, the filter applies correctly. but as soon as I try to put those results into a report I get boxes asking me to enter in asset_typeID.

problem is that when I filter with combo boxes, it returns the name of the asset_type and not the asset_TypeID.
ex. for laptops the ID = 4
