Continuous Form with command buttons

I have a continuous form that I would like to have a command button in each row. The caption of each button should correspond to the values in a table (tblCallTypes). When you click on thebutton it is going to add a new record in (tblTally) with some information based on the user's log in.

I am having trouble creating these buttons the way I have described. I should be okay once I get the buttons captioned correctly.

Continuous Form Button
I have a button that I would like to pull up the current row's data in a separate tab control page.

I'm not sure why, but the command button is only enable on the first row of the continuous form and disabled on all other rows. I have another application that functions the same way and there are no issues with it, yet I cannot find any differences in the command buttons. In fact, I copied it from one form to the other.

Is this a common issue? How do I fix it?


Continuous Form Disable Command Button
I have continuous form bound to a table called [INVOICE_APPROVER]. This form serves as a rough draft for recording data on invoices. Once data is completed and invoices have been approvedI have a button that appends the data to the final invoice table, where it is then deducted from the budget table and everything else.

This works great, however I need to put some control on the button so entries are not duplicated on multiple button presses.

Here is what I have tried so far:

I have the INVOICE_ENTRY command in the continuous for run the query and disable using this code:

Private Sub INVOICE_ENTRY_Click()
DoCmd.SetWarnings False
DoCmd.OpenQuery "INVOICE_ENTRY"
DoCmd.SetWarnings True
Me.PR.SetFocus
Me.INVOICE_ENTRY.Enabled = False
Me.Repaint
End Sub

This works, but since a continuous form it disables all the buttons. can't have that.

I then tried adding another step by having the INVOICE_ENTRY command open an unbound single form, setting default values to the original INVOICE_APPROVER form, and placing a ADD_ENTRY button in the Footer.

I used the same code as above adapted for this new form. This works as well, however when I close the form and click the INVOICE_ENTRY command on the continuous for the ADD_ENTRY command is no longer disabled.

and I know this is a lot of work for something that could just be bound to the original invoice table, however doing it this way is somewhat necessary.


Command Buttons - Hiding/Unhiding
In Access 2002 I have 6 buttons on my non continuous form. Their names being:

1. Yes
2. No
3. FormLeftBlank
4. DefacedForm
5. IlegibleForm
6. NoSignature

I also have a combobox on my form with the six values inside it being (notice the spaces):

1. Yes
2. No
3. Form Left Blank
4. Defaced Form
5. Ilegible Form
6. No Signature

What I require is that when the value in the combo box is chosen then the approriate command button becomes visible (and all the others stay hidden). I.e. If the user chooses the 'Yes' value in the combo box then the 'Yes' command button appears. I need this for all six values in the combobox

Command Buttons in a Form
I am new to Access & trying to create a form/database, but the command buttons I added don't seem to work. I have ensured that Data Entry is checked off in properties, but suspect that there needs to be some sort of relationship established between the command buttons & the form/database.


Passing last sort command to DoCmd.OpenForm
I have a continuous form that shows a summary list of records. And another form that is a single form that will only show filtered records that were selected from the 1st form.

The summary form has some combo filters and a command button that opens the second form with only the filtered records. I am using Allens Browns sample of strWhere to do this.

DoCmd,OpenForm frmName,,,strWhere

I also have a few sort command buttons that are using the Me.Orderby=[FieldName]

What I can not figure out is how to pass the last sort command from the summary form along with the where condition to the second form.


filter name by letter
I'm sure this is a fairly simple problem but I'm having quite some difficulty.

I originally had a continuous form with a list of client names and phone numbers. I used the alpha macro from the access sample database to filter the list by letter. I am changing that form, basically for aesthetic reasons - bringing its design in line with all of the other forms in the database. Originally I was going to have the actual list of names as a subform and use an unbound main form to contain all of the command buttons for user input. It seems, now that a better method would probably be to use one form and utilize a list box to display the names and numbers. I want to still use command buttons for each letter, but I'm at a loss for what I should use in the onclick event for each of those buttons

Make command buttons unique to a record
access forumers,

Im having trouble with a form, it seems really simple but I just cant work it out, ill explain a bit about my form and then what im trying to achieve:

my form contains information about a client (address, name, workorders, notes, machines)
Now the name and address appear at the top, then I have a tabbed section below for workorders, notes and machines. Workorders is a subform, notes is a textbox and machines; a command button linking to that machine.

Now the problem im having is, the command buttons are carrying over to other clients (records). However the notes are not (and of course, the subform for workorders). I have spent so long staring at the command buttons properties and other settings and cant find anything.

Is there any way to make my command buttons only appear on certain records (i need different buttons on each record). If it's not, what are my options


Clear records off of continuous form
Im trying to find a command to clear all the records on a continuous form that were called up using a strWhere Filter and combo boxes.

There are four unbound combo-boxes in the header that the user can choose from and then I have a command button coded to filter (Me.FilterOn) for those criteria.
The matching records display in the details section of the form (continuous-style).

Is there a command to reset the details section of the form to be blank? Ive tried refresh, requery, repaint, etc. All of these leave the previously queried data. Removing the filter doesnt work because that display all the records. I basically want the form to look exactly the way it did when it was first opened.


Automatically align button controls on a form
So on my form, I have various command buttons for shortcuts, etc. I am using certain criteria to hide/show different shortcuts based on user login ID. This works great, but my only problem is how to automatically alight the buttons.

I have all the buttons in one rectangular spot, but I don't want users to see blank gaps for command buttons that are invisible. Is it possible toautomatically have the visible buttons justify to one side so there aren't random blank spots on the form?


VBA code for Command buttons on child form
I am very new to Access 2003 and I've run into a problem with the command buttons on one of my forms. I have a main form that has a command button that opens up a second form, on the second form my Record Navigation 'go to previous record' and Record Navigation 'go to next record' buttons do not work, I receive the error: You can't go to the specified record.

However, when I open this second form up by itself these buttons function as they should.

@AccessMSSQL mentioned that when I open the second form through the command button, this may cause only one record to be displayed so I can't move to next or previous.

Is there any way to replace the navigation buttons of main form (frmMain) with the navigation buttons of the continuously sub form (fsubStudents).

So, I tried to make my sub form as Single form & then it does show the navigation buttons of sub form but I want to show right on the main form.
Alternatively, can I replace the default navigation buttons with custom navigation buttons?

link between a continuous form's data and a more detailed form
I have a continuous form that lists the basic data for a number of records. I also have a single form that has the more detailed data for the same records. Is there any way to make a hyperlink/command button of some sort that I can click on while looking through the continuous form that will send me to that same record in the more detailed single form


Customisation of dynamically populated forms
I have a series of forms and subforms which cascade to dynamically create a checklist form of certain questions and answers dependant on the choices selected by the user.

This works by dynamically populating the form with whatever questions are required from the relevant tables

The check-list actually works quite well however I can only get the form to display 1 question at a time in single form view or questions at a time for continuous form view. I do not want to use datasheet view

So therefore is there more customisation I can do with continuous view in code to show a certain number of questions per page for example, I don't like the scroll options I want to do everything with command buttons?

Generating graph from continuous form
I got a continuous form (referred as Form1) which has a dropdown and a few textboxes to generate a filter for the from. There are also two command buttons, one for filtering the data, one for generating a graph in Form2.

The problem is with generating the graph. I'd like to use the form's filter for bounding the graph's data. So records shown in Form1 must be used for the new graph (Graph1 in Form2). Isthere a way to copy the filter to the new form or use the data?

I know that this is explained quite weirdly, but I cannot think of another way at this moment.
