Commit row in form

I made a form using Record Source from Query.

I placed combo boxes using separate queries for Row Source.

When I try to input data I can not. Error statement says the row is not committed and that I sould commit the row.

What does that mean? I cannot find a reference anywhere to help correct the problem

"Commit new row" in subform
I'm using Access 2007 and have a form for fleet vehicles and a subform for repair records. The two are linked on the Vehicle # field. When adding a repair record to the subform, I locatethe correct vehicle on the form and all the entered repair records are correctly displayed.

However, when I add a new record to the subform (repairs table), and type a date in the RepairDate field, I get the message "The value cannot be added to this new row until the row has been committed. Commit the row first, and then try adding the value."

but the only answer I found was "The subform row is being saved without a required field, probably the primary key."

How do I commit the new row? How do I enter the primary key, which is an autonumber field added when an entry is made in the row?

Progress indicator when commit the changes using DAO
Anyone know if there is a way to show a progress indicator when you commit the changes using DAO? I have a rather large DAO process and when it commits it just looks like the program hangs but its really updating and when its finished it tells the user.

I would really like to be able to provide either a simple progress bar or if I could actually show whats going on.


Knowing who called a form event
I am needing to develop a subform version of a form that is already in my application. That form calls an AddRecord / EditRecord form itself. When those forms Commit an update, they call back to the parent form, firing a re-query event and passing the event the ID of the record which was added/updated. That all works fine and dandy, until..

Now I am developing this clone of that records list form, to be used in a subform context on another main form. It will be known via a different name this time to receive the callback upon successful commit of the INSERT/UPDATE.

I am thinking to make this record list / add+edit dialog handshake unique in that the list form will pass some sort of token to the add/edit dialog in order that it know who called it, thus know who to send the requery event to when it has successfully committed.

Is that sort of information (which form opened another form) available automatically? Or do I need to pass it along myself when the child form is opened?


Odd tabbing through Rows
I have created bunches of simple access DB, and never had this problem, it only has happened in on DB, and the form design was no different than before. Normally in the form in the row I enter figures, tab and go to the next column space in that row, however in the one form when I start off in the first column, I hit tab button and instead of taking me to the next column in the same row, it jumps down to the next column in the row BELOW the row I am working in, in other words it tabs down and to the right. Once I click using the mouse back into the cell I wanted, tabbing through the rest of the columns in that row work fine, its just going from column 1 to 2 that causes a row jump down


Should we put SELECT statements inside a transacti
begin trans
update items statement
inset order statement
select @@identity statement
select * from items where statement
commit trans

My first question is should we put the two SELECT statements inside or outside commit trans?

My second question is do we need a transaction for just SELECT statements like the following?

begin trans
select 1 statement
select 2 statement
select 3 statement
commit trans

I think only action queries can be a transaction.


Configure control specific enter key behavior
Is there a way to, on one paticular control (text field) trap for the Enter key and on the rest of the form have "Enter = Commit" button?

I would like that when you are in the search field, if you press enter that it would push the search button.

I tried putting:

Private Sub fldPartNumberSearch_KeyPress(KeyAscii As Integer) Debug.Print KeyAscii End Sub

But the Enter key always jumps me to the Commit button, and I do not see the event fire in the Immediate window's output.

I even went as far as commenting out:

btnCommit.Default = True

in the Form_Load event and it does not undo the association.

So, is there an Rx for a control specific alternate Enter key behavior


Multi-Item Form, VBA editing on Load?
I have a Multi-Item form and would like to do some math and change formatting on some fields depending on content of data in each row. From what I can tell, the on Load even only lets you do something with the first row and does not execute the VBA code for any following row.

I don't see any way to trigger the VBA code on a row-by-row basis as the form is being painted.
Does anyone have a technique to do this or do I have to go to some other form type to do some dynamic formatting?


SQL Transaction question
Can I run a Begin Transaction command using VBA, run a few other commands than, run a Commit/Rollback command, all as separate commands. Will that have the same effect as a SQL script with a BEGIN TRANSACTION at the beginning and COMMIT/ROLLBACK command at the end


Row source values not appearing in Form
here is my problem. I have a combo box and have value list as my row source type(I know, not the best option, I didn't design it). So my row source is a list of over 20 options. When I try to add another row source value, it does not appear on the form. Is there any way possible for me to get this to work? I understand that creating a table and using that might be my best option for my row sources, but I was just wondering if there was any way around this problem

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?


Delete A Row From Table Based On Form Control Criteria
I have a form that is some how set to read only. It wont allow me to delete any records directly from the form.

What I would like to do is create a command button that deletes a row from the underlying table. I would like the row being deleted from the underlying table to be based on a control in the form.

but I would really like to learn how to delete a row from the underlying table so that I can use it for other purposes.

NOTE: The PrimaryKey is a replication ID- Any way to get around the error that comes up on the findfirst method?


Alternate Row Color in Form Datasheet
Is it possible to alternate row colors in a form datasheet?Backordered, if Backordered is True, then that row would be highlighted OR the font would be a different color.

Picture Importation Deselects Table Row
I had a question regarding importing images to a form.

Right now I have a listbox on my main form. There is also a button that will open a report of the selected row in the lisbox when clicked. I recently added an image frame that portrays an image based on the path stored in the 10th column of the table. My problem is that upon clicking a row the picture is imported, and the preview report button will no longer work. It looks like when the picture is imported the row is deselected (although it is still highlighted). Is there a way to keep the row selected

sub form insertion / right click
I have a form with a sub form that has a master record of data and a sub-form that is a grid of detail data. One of the columns on the sub-form is a number. I want to right click on the row in the sub-form and insert. I can click New Record for instance. Before inserting the new record, I want to be able to capture the current row's numeric column. I then want to increment the number for every row after that. The code to do that is easy. But I cannot think what event I need to do it on. Before insert fires after I have navigated away.


How To Sort A Number Field in a Form?
I have a form where data can be added and it has different tabs. The 3rd tab has idVersion field and Comment field where users can add the version and comment, if needed. When they need to add another version, the blank fields will be added as next row, so on and so forth.

The problem is users are adding a lot of versions but not sorted. So for example:

Row 1 of the form: idVersion field is "1" and comment has "Test 1". Row 2 of the form: idVersion field is "8" and comment has "Test 8". Row 3 of the form: idVersion field is "2" and comment has "Test 2". Row 2 of the form: idVersion field is "5" and comment has "Test 5".

So how can I fix it where after they saved the version and comment, when they close the database and re-open it again, the data will show up as:

Row 1 of the form: idVersion field is "1" and comment has "Test 1". Row 2 of the form: idVersion field is "2" and comment has "Test 2". Row 3 of the form: idVersion field is "5" and comment has "Test 5". Row 2 of the form: idVersion field is "8" and comment has "Test 8".

So even if they add a new version and comment (example version "3"), it will be automatically sorted when the database is reopen.


Form design for CRUD
but looking at the sample databases, the example forms don't have a submit (or ok) button to commit record changes. The data is updated straight after leaving a field in a form. Is this standard practise for commercial apps written in access?

Would the alternative optin be to include unbound text fields in a form and onclick of a sbmitt button perform crud operations programmatically using VBA
