create button to link to create new record
I'm creating a database in access 2007. I have got a main menu. 2 buttons are included. 1 button go to a form to create a new company data. 1 button go to a form to edit company data. The link work, I mean when I click in the button I'm going to the form wanted. But, I can't manage to have a new record or to edit the details in both form. When I'm in the next form, I'm just stuck on a record. I can't edit. In the form new_company I add some button (with command button wizard) call new, save and delete. But there are not working as well. I have got a message saying "I can't go to the specified record" for new.

For save or delete the message is "the command or action 'save record' isn't available now". In the property on a form the data entry in data is yes. I'm trying to add a VBA in event on open but its not working as well.


Can I create a command button that allows users to edit records on a form?
And I would like to be able to edit records on a form with a click command in access 2010. I want to prevent any user from just typing within the text boxes on the form without clicking a command edit button first.

Can this be done? If so, how can this be done? Would you have any sample code to attach to the editing button, to do this interesting problem.


Macro to change the macro linked to a command button event?
I am using Access 2003. I have a form containing a command button that when clicked runs a macro that changes the form color and the caption for the command button. I also want the macro to change the macro linked to this command button.

My idea is that the button will function as a kind of “toggle button” between modes.

The original macro linked to the command button is named “record edit” and the macro I wish to link to the command button is named “on close”.

However, whenever I run the macro, though the caption and color changes take place, I receive the error:-

“The object doesn't’t contain the Automation object ‘on close’”

Here is the macro "record edit":-


How to Edit the Macro that exists behind an existing Command Button

Delete Command Button not working on form
I have a Delete Command Button on a form which does not appear to be working properly.

I originally had a delete button macro created by the command button wizard and it seemed to be functioning properly. from the form it would ask if you want to delete the record permanently. If I chose yes, it would appear to delete it, meaning that if I were to search for the record to verify it would say that the record does not exist. Upon closing the form and viewing the table, the record would not actually be deleted and would then be back on the form when I would reopen it.

So, I browsed through the discussion board and found a suggestion on a couple of posts and tried that as well creating the delete button in the code builder using the following code:


Write Vba code on a command button to edit records?
I've created a command button were I would like to edit records.the records or text fields are set are set to prevent a user from accidentally over writing existing data through a typo etc. I've locked the text fields; however, I would like the user to click on the command button to edit the data.


Gray out "new record" button
I want to gray out the new record button (the one created by ACCESS).

Basicly I have a sub I want to call before the new record command is activated. Ideally I would give the user a button I create that runs the sub, and if the fields are as I want them, then it would allow the new record to load. However if not, it would give a message and cancel the command.

Or if there a way to tell if the new record button is hit BEFORE the command is executed, that would work


How to update a record through a form
Basically, I have a form with a combo box, some text boxes, and a command button.

What I want to do is have the user select a record from the combo box, which then populates the textboxes (I've already managed to do this). Once the data has loaded into the textboxes, Iwant the user to be able to edit the info in the textboxes, then press the command button so that it updates that record in the table.

Next Record and EOF
Im sure this must be a common problem but I cant seem to find a simple solution

I created a Form to display the record details of a Query. I have four command buttons (First Record, Next Record, Prev Record, Last Record) to scroll through the records. The problem is when the EOF is reached and the user clicks the Next Record button a blank record appears and if they click the Next Record button a second time the program goes into Debug. And so my questions are

1. How can I detect the EOF condition?

2. How can I disable (or hide) the Next Record command button so it wont go into Debug if it is clicked again

I have a command button in which I have turned the AllowEdits to No.

Private Sub Command13_Click()
If Me.AllowEdits = True Then

End If
End Sub

When I open the form in form view, edits is off, I press the button and the button then says 'edit on' and I can edit my data, I finally press the button again it says 'edit off' but I cans till edit data.


Couldn't Update Currently blocked by another session on this machine (97)
I have a edit form that accesses one selected record containing 10 fields. One of the fields is a memo field. The form has two command buttons (1.

Save record and return to main menu & (2. Save record and print preview report. Everything works fine UNTIL the memo field contains more than approx. 2000 characters. IF you enter the form AND the memo field already contains the 2000+ characters AND you do not edit any of the fields on the form AND you press either of the command buttons; the above Couldn't’tUpdate ….

Message Box appears. There is an OK button on the Message Box to close it. There is no way to exit the form UNLESS you go to a field (any field) and do some sort of edit on it; even as insignificant as pressing the space bar at the end of a text field. Then you can exit the form by pressing on either of the command buttons.

Form command button to bring up the same record on the 2nd form

Open Unfiltered Form to Specific Record
I have two forms: Employee Lookup & Edit Record. These forms work, for the most part, as you would expect.look up an employee on the Employee Lookup form; if you want to edit the information for the person, click the Edit Record button to have the Employee Lookup form close & the Edit Record form open to the desired record.

the Edit Record formis filtered to show only the desired record.)

When all editing is done, if you click the Save Changes button, I can get the Edit Record form to close and the Employee Lookup form to open but it's either opening as an unfiltered form to the first record (not the record that was edited).or it's opening as a filtered form to the edited record.

using VB, in opening the Employee Lookup form (unfiltered) to the specified record.

The names of the forms are:

* frmEmployees
* frmEmployee_Edit

The unique identifier for each record is EmpID.

my explanations can sometime come off that way.)


Use a command button to start an action or a series of actions
You use a command button on a form to start an action or a set of actions. For example, you can create a command button that opens another form. To make a command button perform an action, you write a macro or event procedure and attach it to the command button's On Click property. You can also embed a macro directly into the On Click property of the command button. This makes it possible to copy the button to other forms without losing the functionality of the button.
What do you want to do?
* Add a command button to a form by using a wizard
* Create a command button by dragging a macro to a form
* Create a command button without using a wizard
* Customize a command button


You cannot add or change a record because a related record is required in the table ‘Item’?
I have a continuous form (Item) where each record has a command button that open a second form. The forms have a one to many relationship. When I add a new record to the first form andclick on the command button the second form opens and I can enter data in the first record but as soon as I try to go the next record or close the second form I get the message:

You cannot add or change a record because a related record is required in the table ‘Item’

If I enter data in a new record in the first table (Item), and then click on a previous record and then return to the new record and click on the command button of the new recordeverything thing works fine in the second form.

It’s like my new record is not saved before the second form opens. I did add a “docmd.save” to the command button code but that didn't’t help.


Command Buttons
I am trying to put a button on one form in many records. I want the button to go to another form that is only related to that record. I have a command button but it appears on all of the records. I am not that familar with macros. Is there a easy way to do this? It looks like the command button is limited.


Creating Custom Command Buttons
When creating a Microsoft Access User Interface, and adding the standard Access command buttons does not give too many options for customising the look of the interface.
The problem is that when using a bitmap to use as a "skin" for the button, there is still a grey border around the bitmap once it is on the command button. If you are using custom background colors as well it doesn't look very nice having a nice looking command button that still has a grey boarder.


Search Record Command Button
I have created a form for the purpose of inputting data and also searching for entries already in the database. My form works as an input form, however I cannot search for a record using the form. I used the wizard to create a search record command button, however this does not link to the original table. Do I have to assign a text box to the search record command button or is there another way to fill the fields by searching key text?

I hope this message isn't too confusing, it sounds ok in my head but I have been sat at a computer for 12 hours and this problem is driving my crazy.
