Hidden Forms and Subforms

Hidden Forms and Subforms
Views: 2
I'm in the process of editing and expanding an existing database. Basically all I need to do is to copy what is already there and change the record source. I can open the form that I need to copy however this form does not appear in the forms list (neither does the subreport on the form). Any ideas how to find this form and subform?

I've attached a copy of the database, if you open the form "Club Secretaries Contacts" then click on one of the buttons at the bottom i.e. "Summer Sunday" this will open the form I can not find. The subform I can not find is on this form

Editing in a subform within a report

Preview
I've definitely been trying to do some stuff that Access wasn't exactly engineered to do, but I'm pretty sure Access was meant to have subforms in reports. Yet for some reason, I can't edit the data in any of my subforms within a certain report.

It's complex, but the subforms are enabled, the forms within them are unbound (no outer-join issues) and enabled. The subforms are hidden and made visible based on user events in a subreport.

The funny thing is, I could swear I used these forms before. And now I can't type in them.

I'm at a complete loss and frustrated with the lack of specifics about using subforms in reports on the internet. Anybody have

subforms in unbound forms

Preview
I have unbound forms name: Project_List, in it there is two subforms bound in a query. Is there a way to link the two subforms, so that when I click a record on the first subforms. it filters a related records.

Let's say in field name: Doc_Name when I click a record from this field, access will filter related date in the 2nd subforms.
 

Prevent subforms in access from loading before main forms

Preview
We use subforms in Access a lot around here. Sometimes, we may have upwards of 5 or 6 subforms per form. Adding that many can be a real drag on performance if you’re not careful. This is part one of two posts on the topic. Ben will talk about disabling the loading of subforms on startup in our next post.
 

subforms update ALL records at once

Preview
I have a set of tables that are accessed by forms and subforms. A couple of the subforms seem to update ALL of the records in the relevant table when data is entered, while other subforms correctly update only the viewed record
Ideas on where to start debugging this would be greatly appreciated!
 

Access on MAC

Today I was going to test an Access database in a Mac computer, and I realize there is no Access on Mac!

any solutions? The database is quite complex, with forms with hidden reference to other forms, subforms,etc.

I know that keeping the data is not a problem, but anyway os launching Access on a Mac
 

Subforms constantly refresh

Preview
I am having trouble with subforms constantly refreshing. I am building a form with a timesheet (first subform) and a sortable project list (second subform); each of the subforms is a continuous by default. However when both of these forms are on the form they start constantly refreshing. I commented out all the code on both subforms and the main form but it still does this. There are no macros either.

Does anyone know how I could fix this? As I said this doesn't seem to happen when only one of the subforms exists on the form, but I really need both to make this at all user friendly.

Edit: Forgot to specify this is in Access

Access 2007, all subforms read-only

Preview
I've converted an application from Access 2003 to Access 2007. Everything was looking good until I tried editing some data from a subform and discovered that all forms, when displayed as a subform, are read-only.

I tried the old version and all of the subforms work fine and I even converted the old version again and all of the subforms are working -- but I've done a lot of work on first conversion so would like to not need to start over, if possible.

This is not an issue with joins or read-only queries because some of the forms being used as a subform that are read-only are linked directly to a table. Also if a form is placed as a subform on another form, but is not linked to the master form at all, editing works. I checked the obvious (allow edits, enabled, locked, etc.)

Is there a new option in 2007 that affects subforms -- like is there an option somewhere that sets all subforms to read-only? Forms/subforms that were working no longer do so
