Set default values for fields or controls
This article explains how to set a default value for a table field or for a control on a form in a Microsoft Office Access 2007 database. The default values that you set will appear in the field or control whenever you create a new record in your database.

acCmdSaveRecord not available?
I've set up several functions to create default values for certain fields in a form when it opens with no underlying records. Sometimes I need to add data to this form, and sometimes the default values are sufficient. I want to be able to save the record on the form in the latter case, but neither 'Save Record' on the Records menu, nor 'Do.Cmd Runcommand acCmdSaveRecord' (from a button created for the task) will work. Its as though the form isn't aware that these new values exist to create a new record from when only default values are present. When the form opens with its default values, both the Next Record and New Record buttons on the navigation bar at the bottom of the form are greyed out. If I edit one of the other fields on the form, then everything returns to normal. I want to use acCmdSaveRecord to automatically save the default values to a new record when the form opens. What must I do so that this will work?


Default values in tables
I've created a table which autofills certain default values in fields. I've noticed that the table automatically creates a (new) entry if I do this. This in turn shows up in queries even though there's no matching criterias (just the new field shows up as the default value autofilled with today's date matches the query criteria).

Is there anyway to prevent the table autocreating new entry if I apply default values? Should I apply the default value at form level instead?


About Default Value in yes/No Field
I am working on a project that collects data about the children. I am trying to put yes/no button on the form using table values. So far everything is going on good. I have a table call childgender where the default value needs to be empty but for some reason even though I delete default value access keeps showing the No value.

What I did is I created a field in table called Child1Gender with yes/no button which I changed value to Boy/Girl using ;"Boy";"Girl" as a format with combobox which values are -1 and 0 as access assigns as default value for Yes/No option. On the form I used bound multicheckbox which values are boy=-1 i.e. yes default value and Girl = 0 i.e.

No default value as access assigns. When I run table it fills all the ChildGender fields with no = 0 (Girl) as a default value. I wanted to make my default value as null so that people can select Child gender.


Multiple default values in listbox
I have a listbox in a form that is populated with values from a table. I want to have several of the values selected by default


Unbound Control Mystery
I have a report with a number of unbound controls which show a default value. The report loads fine and displays the correct values as it should. However I need to change the values on some of the controls but for the life of me can't find / remember where I set the the default values. There is no code on the report and within the properties of the unbound controls there is no default value option.

Very confused as I obviously set a default value at some point


Setting default property values
I am wondering if there is a way to set default values for specific properties upon instantiating a class.

For example: Suppose I develop a Person class, which has name, address, city, state and zip as properties.

Now when I use the New keyword in my code to instantiate this class, at that time I want to set default values for my properties. I know this can be done in VB.NET. Not sure about in VBA


Set up a default in Combo Box to show when opening a form
I have a combo box which uses a table with No and Yes. I want the No to be the default whenever I open the form. I have tried several default values suggested in microsoft but none have worked.


Default Values In Form
I have two tables: Stock take Records and Cost of Materials. I have created a form based on the Stock Take Records table which has the below fields:

Part no
Item Description
Material Cost
Sub Con Cost
Labour Cost
(And others fields for stock taking)

(The Cost of Materials table also has the above fields).

I have changed the Part No to be a drop down selection that is looking at the Cost of Materials table. When I select a part number from this list, I would like the default values for the above to be populated with the values held in the cost of materials table. The numbers held in Material Cost, Sub Con Cost and Labour Cost need to be able to be changed for each record depending on how far along assembly is which is why I am trying to set them up as default values.

I have tried setting default values and using a DLookUp but can't seem to get it to work. Wasn't sure if I'm doing something wrong or do I need to do this by using VBA


Default Value
I am developing MS Access Databases for various users, where they can view only forms. Some fields have been assigned with Default Values. But after some period the default value may change. Since the users can't open the concerned table in design view, they are forced toenter the same data every time till it changes.
whether it is possible to change the Default Value by entering the value through a form?


Main form default value from subform
I have done a search and can't find an answer to this.

I have a main form and when you start to fill in the fields it will fill the default values for the others. If I start filling in the subform before entering in the main form the data is lost. Is there a way in which when entering data in the subform it will pick the default values in the main form


Field values in datasheet not updating on first record entry
I have a split form with text boxes and combo boxes in the header that provide values for the datasheet. Some of these fields have assigned default values, some do not. The fields that do not have assigned default values don't populate the datasheet on the first entry, but do on each additional entry.

I'm not sure what's going on, I do not have any event procedures on these controls.

Want to be editing Textbox upon Form Opening
In my form, I have several users type in values. When my form opens by default it is like this:

I would like it to be like this:

By Default, Even though the Part # Textbox is the first Index Tab, the user currently has to hit tab or select that textbox with their mouse.

How can I make it such that by default when this form opens, that text box is in edit mode and the user can begin typing away immediately


Default values in record causing auto number to change
In Access 2010, I have a form that calls a form for data entry and it opens to a new record for data entery. I have put some default dates and a combo box value into the properties on the form.

When the form opens, it already has an autonumber, so if the user closes without adding any fields, a record is saved. If I take out those defaults, then when the form is opened, the autonumber shows (new), which is what I want it to do.

If I put the default dates in the table, When I add a default of text in a combo box, the form opens with an autonumber.


Copy recordset from one subform to another
I have two subforms in different parent forms. One of the forms is simply a method of setting the default values. The other form is supposed to lookup those default values when a new record is made. A am struggling to make it copy all of the data. To start I'm only trying to make it copy one field. I've swear I've seen it work a time or two, but if it's working at all it's certainly not consistent.

Anyway, in the attachment you can go to frmEquipment. In the dropdown at the top right select 'Monthly', then hit the button. In the new form that opens, it's subform should be getting the values from frm2404defaultsSub.

You can see my attempt at the bottom of the button's click event.


*NOT SOLVED* Default Values = Number of Records + 1
I have a bit of a problem with a Form in Access, what I want is a fields Default Value to be the Total Number of Records for that form + 1. I don't want to use an AutoNumber because that messed with Relationships. If anyone can help, it would be


Default values in Access 2000
I am trying to assign a default value to a field in an Access table. The default value is generated in a function which is declared as PUBLIC in a module.

When trying to assign this function as the default value to a field in a table in the same db, Access does not recognize the function.

However in a query or in a form I can reference and call the function without any problem.


Random Default Value Combo Box Selection
I have a database that keeps track of our consulting projects. I have one field that has the consultant who is assigned to the project (values linked to a different table.) Is there anyway to set the default value to randomly select one of the values from the combo box when I create a new record
