multi-column sub report repeat page header
I have a multi column report which is a sub report of master report. I wanted to repeat the page header every time change pages. If I put page header on the page header than the page header does not | print on the second page.

I tried to create a group and has a group header and have my header on | the group header and set repeat to true. It does repeat header on the left side of the report, but the right | side of the report without header and have a detail record on the | header position.

Are there any way to have multi column sub report repeat header for continue pages?

Adding new record from datasheet view in split form
I am trying to create a data entry form from one table tblCommCatch. I am using the "split form" design. I have fields in the header that are combo boxes that the user will select once and then in the datasheet view add additional data. I don't want the user to have to go back to the combo boxes in the header to add a new record. I already set default values for the combo boxes in the header. When I tab to a new record in the datasheet, the PK (CommCatchID) in the header does not advance. How do I get this to work?

header and footer
all; using access 2003. I want to display a subform like a datasheet view without using datasheet view. I have invoice numbers that can have many tracking records. My purpose is I need to display a total for the total amount of each records per invoice number. I inserted to view header and footer. I was trying to put just the lables of the controls in the header of the subform and leave the control in the detail section of the subform but it wouldn't let me. Can someone tell me how to do this or arrange my controls and labels so that they appear like a datasheet.

Database Strings
A string is text made of a readable letter, a symbol, a word or a group of words. When creating a table in Datasheet View, to apply a Text field:
(1)If you create a new field by replacing the Add New Field column header with a name, the new field automatically receives the Text data type
(2)To change the data type of a field, click its column header or a cell under its column. In the Data Type & Formatting section of the Datasheet tab of the ribbon, click the arrow of the Data Type combo box and select Text

Add or delete a column in a datasheet
Microsoft Office Access 2007 provides several ways to add or remove the columns in a datasheet. You can now use Datasheet view to add or remove columns and set the data types for those columns. You can also add fields from a task pane, or you can open the table that underlies the datasheet and add a field in Design view. This topic explains how to use each method.
What do you want to do?
* Understand columns in datasheets
* Add a column by using Datasheet view
* Remove a column by using Datasheet view
* Add a column by using Design view
* Remove a column by using Design view
* Understand how Access assigns data types as you enter information
* Set the data types that Datasheet view does not infer
* Enable rich-text editing for a Memo field
* Convert a column into a lookup field

How to Set Column Width in Datasheet View?
I have a subform that is in datasheet view. Through testing, I found that the using


returns the width of the control itself on the subform, not the displayed width of the datasheet column. How would I be able to reference the displayed datasheet column width?

how do i disable column header context menu in a subform
to everyone,
I have a question, lets just say I have a subform named Child0 and the source object name is Contacts, I set the default view of Contacts to Datasheet view, now when I open the main form with Child0 as my subform, I wanted to disable the the menu that pops up when I right click on the Contact column header, I wanted this to be disabled because I built my customized context menu w/c only appears if I right click on one of the fields not on the column headers of the subform/Contacts.

The reason I did this because I wanted to control the events when I hide/unhide the columns on the subform/Contacts

Help with Simple IIF Statement
I need to add a column to my query that finds the 1’s and then counts the number of 1’s and puts that result into the new column with the Header titled Jan.

I’ve been searching thought the web looking for some sort of IIF statement that might do what I’m asking, but having now luck.

If field1 has a 1 in move it to the new column header jan, if field1 has a 2 in it, mover it to a new column header Fed and so forth.

I’ll need to count each on in a summary query

Access Web Datasheet Column Totals
My understanding is that column totals from an Access 2010 Web Database Datasheet is not allowed. As an alternative I would like to have a separate sub-form (sort of a sidebar) showing columns totals for the datasheet.

The user would filter the Web datasheet (I.e. only “Active Orders” rows) and the total purchase price would display in the sub-form. Is this doable?

Datasheet View in a Form
I'm still fretting with Access 2007 trying to create a form that has a data sheet view. So far every time I try the form displays the first record in the data sheet, but when advancing to the next record the first one scrolls up and out of view.

I want the form to display all the records as they are bein entered. In addition I would like to permit the user to enter some information in the header area (it's just there for the printout).

So far all I have come up with is the datasheet view, but if I turn form header/footer on the datasheet view disappears and I'm back to one record at a time.

I could swear that back in Access 2000 days I was able to do this with a datasheet subform, but 2007 has me completely puzzled.

Avoid column deletion in datasheet
Can anyone tell me how can I avoid Column Deletion from Datasheet. I have lots of datasheets in my forms and people make sometimes mistakes. They want to delete the records in the columb but Access deletes the whole columb.

Is there anyway to avoid this problem?

P.S. And locking column width is also a problem for me.

Checkbox filter on Datasheet
Done a pile of searching and I can't seem to figure out what should be a simple problem.

I have a Datasheet form that has a checkbox in the header. When the checkbox is checked, I want the datasheet to update and show only records with the field value = 6. The field is called [Category]. If the box is unchecked, I want all records to display.

I should also mention that this form is based on a query.

Column Order, Hidden, Name
I was wondering if someone can help me with this. I have a datasheet that allows the user to hide, sort, move etc. each column. I am attempting to generate a report dynamically based of this user customized datasheet. I am trying to figure out how to read or loop through the form controls to determine the column order, whether hidden or not, size etc. I then want to use that information to generate the report. I'm no expert with VB but I know experts are here! Can anyone direct me to an example

Subform Layout
I have a subform that displays in datasheet view. I recently added a new value to be displayed in the subform. Naturally, the column went to become the last visible column in the subform.

What's weird is that now I cannot change the column position or width on any column in this subform. I've tried design view, datasheet view, layout view, and nothing works. I click save each time I change it before switching to another view. But when I reopen the form, they've gone back to the way they were before.

I can easily change column width and position on other subforms not related to this one.

Another Form Filtering Question
I've got a form with search criteria in the header. The detail of the form has another form that is based on a query that used the fields in the form header as the criteria. So each time the criteria is changed the query and form are refreshed.

This works fine but the format is somewhat rigid. This is a customer requirement that the header have the search criteria and the detail be in datasheet view.

Let’s say I have 3 criteria for viewing vehicles. Model, Type, Color. Currently you can choose a Model, Type and Color and it works fine. But if you want to just search by Model, I have to create a different query.

The current query requires all three fields to be populated. This is easily done with SQL. The SQL select and sort will always be the same. The only difference is the where clause.

My question is how do I use VBA to change the record source of the form within the detail of the current form? (I understand this may not be the best design but the customer wants the result in datasheet view while still having the search criteria available in the header.

Otherwise I would just filter the form in datasheet view but the header isn't available) I know the SQL but any effort to change the record source ends in an error.

I've got a list box on another form where I change the row source based on SQL and it works great. This seems somewhat similar but I can't get it to work.

sort button
I have a datasheet form that I would like to click on the column header and then click on a button (a to z) or (z to a) that will sort the data in either ascending or descending order. This is simple if I leave the toolbar enabled but I would like to do this with a command button. I'm not a programmer and have little understanding of module etc.

Eliminate blank space in a column until data is available
My report has many columns but one data column (1YR) field has blank spaces so I need to eliminate those blank spaces and print out the next available data in the FullName Header. This column could have 1, 2 ,3, etc.

blank spaces until the next available data. I have Can Grow & Can Shrink on all fields and GroupHeaders. I've tried Trim on the Control Source for detailand FullName Header separately then together.

Datasheet Filter with Check Boxes
I have a form that opens in datasheet view. The operators like to click on a column heading, then Home, then Filter. They get a list of check boxes with each unique value in the column and check/uncheck the rows they want to include/exclude.

Routinely, they do the same thing with a second, third, fourth and more columns. I don't think there is a practical limit.

I recently applied a filter to the form to limit the rows that appear in the initial datasheet view. Now, with the filter, they can click on one column, then Home, then Filter and they get the same check box of values to include/exclude.

However, if they go to a second column and do the same thing, they don't get the check boxes. I have used a filter within the RecordSource and I've tried putting the filter in a RecordSource query. In each case I get the same result.

I would like to be able to apply a filter to the form and still let the user pick multiple columns to further filter the datasheet.

I have tried this with Access 2000 and 2007 databases with the same result.

Select All records in datasheet view for copy
Trying to Copy All records in a Datasheet view into a variable.
Will use variable to paste into a new blank Excel worksheet (using vba).

A form (MyForm) with a SubForm (sfRowList) Default View as Datasheet. MyForm has a search to filter that works. And, the users like the feature to resort any column.

Once the users filter and sort the data, they can click in the upper left-hand corner of the header/row of the dataview and basically "Select All". Then they can paste the selected headers and records into Excel.

What is the VBA for the "Select All" and copy of the subform's data from the parent form (see button Copy to Excel in attachment
