How to clear the form?

Is there some who can help how to clear a form? A form is empty and you need to find the record first. For example a log in form with your username and password. You don't want your username and password to be displayed if someone wants to open your database so you need to clear out and let that person type the username and password. Because in the table you add your username and password. The problem is that when I try to run the form base on the logintable, it displays the username and the password automatically. How could I clear the form making it empty? Please need

Clear a form without gettingerrors
Using a form to edit detail in a subform in Access 2003. When the users open the form; the fields are populated with previous data. The form has a recordsource of a table and the subform has a recordsource of a query.

The users select invoice number from a unbound field on the main form which loads applicable data in the subform. I put a clear button on the main form to clear the fields but it gives me errors about how I can't change the record because it would cause duplicates.

How do I clear the fields when the users exit the form without gettingerrors.


How to clear form without setting DataEntry property to yes
I would like to clear the data displayed in a subform with VBA using a button, similar to when you have the DataEntry property set to NO, and then has to close and open a specific form, to clear it.

In short, the data will be displayed in form until you clear it with a button - (dataentry will be yes, till you press the clear button)

My reason for doing this - when I temporarily close the main form and return later, all data captured are deleted from the subform, and I then have to check what was the last data captured, before continuing with the next lot. This wastes time.

the main form is "StocktakeF"
the subform is called : "Fis_stocktakeSF"


How to make cmd buttons (undo & clear) work on subforms
On the Main form I have cmd buttons that clear and undo.

Specifically the Undo doesn't undo the subforms, just the Main form. I also am not sure how to make my clear button, clear out all controls on all 3 forms.


Error when clearing form
Using access 2007

Basically I have created a form (Majority unbound) and wanted the user to be able to save the form (done) and then clear the form in order to input the new data.

I already have a clear button that clears a majority of the controls on the form using this VBA code

Private Sub Clear_form_Click()
Dim ctl As Control

On Error Resume Next

For Each ctl In Me.Controls
ctl.Value = ctl.DefaultValue
Next

Set ctl = Nothing

End Sub

This is all well except one point :

The last text box doesn't clear, instead it says #Error. The Text box is simple I just created it from the MS ribbon and entered the name of it and a simple calculation which is : =[Quantity]-[Quantity_out].

this obviously means that not all the controls are clear and new so How exactly do I over come this?

Anything else I can do please ask


Operation to Clear a Form?
I have a form that uses a query to run reports. Is there an operation for a button to clear the form? When it starts the wizard there is no option for clearing the data, just refreshing. They are all unbound combo boxes that I have in the form.

I don't need to save any records as this form is used solely for reporting purposes.


Trying to clear my unbound form with an onClick event. Partially working
And it works fine to clear my combo boxes. I changed a few things to try to get it to clear a couple text boxes on the form as well. however my improvisation did not work.
:-----
Private Sub cmdClearCombos_Click()
' Resets ALL combobox values in the current form to null.

Dim ctl As Control

For Each ctl In Me.Controls
If TypeOf ctl Is ComboBox Then
ctl.Value = Null

End If
Next

End Sub

-----

I tried adding another IF/Then after that one to clear TextBox, got errors.

Then I tried to add an OR, such as "If typeof ctl is ComboBox or TextBox Then" this also didn't work, although it did still clear my combo boxes and didn't error.


Deselect all checkboxes in Access 2007 form
I have created a split-form (Form_ChkBx)to display records in my table (MST_Table). The bottom portion of the split-form has datasheet view, the top portion has two control buttons, "Clear" & "Exit".

I would like to program the "Clear" button to loop through the form or table and deselect (clear or reset) all checkboxes.


Clear form help needed
I am looking for some help via macro or some type of code I can attach to a button on a form so it would clear text / combo boxes on the form. There are some very novice users that use the database and the form has some data validation rules so they at times will get stuck when they have entered a wrong number.

I am trying to add a button that if they get confused willclear the for for them and they can start over.


how to clear highlighted fields with a command button
I have multiple fields in a form that use a macro event to highlight the backcolor of the field when the data is changed. I would like to be able to clear the highlighted fields with the click of a button.

I have a command button programed to save the record and would like it to clear the highlights for me as well. What is the best way to accomplish this goal?


Records remaining on the form
When I fill out the form and click the button to add the record, it works fine. However, when I exit the form or access completely and then go back into the form, the last values that were enter show up on the form/screen.

If I delete each field to clear the screen, it also deletes it from the table. This also happens when I go to my search form.

How do I prevent this from occurring. If the screen automatically clears, it will also delete from the table ? In the search form, I have a clear search button that clears all the search values in the form header, but not the detail.

Again, if I clear the detail, will it delete the record from the table ? And how do I prevent the search form from being edited once data isdisplayed ?

I am almost there but these are minor quirks that I cannot figure out.

Clear selected value in combo box
I have a combo box on a form. The user selects a value then presses a command button and opens a form. When the user closes the form returning to the 1st form again, I'd like the combo box to be clear again.

I've tried putting me.combobox=null in just about every event the main form has but nothing works. Is there a way to clear this without putting me.combobox=null in the On Click event of the command button? I have quite a few command buttons on that form and don't want to have to put the code in all of them if I don't have to.

Clear form for next record (MS Access 2007)
I have created a form which uses both textboxes and a combobox. What I wish to achieve is that once the user has entered a data and clicked on save button, the previous entered data should clear out from all the textboxes and the combobox.

DoCmd.GoToRecord , , acNewRec or

How to clear a search form ?
I have a search form where I enter a value and click on a command button. All records that correspond to that value are displayed (continuous form). Works fine.

However, when I exit the form and then go back in, the data from the previous search still populates the screen. The search value/field is blank, but all the previous records are still displayed. How can I clear those values everytime I enter the form (or exit the form) ?


Save Field Entries
On my form I have numerous fields - just like most forms once you tab thru the last field it saves the data and all the fields clear. What I would like if I could control some of the fields to retain the value in them for the next record. Is there a setting I can use to save the data until the form is closed and then clear once the form is reopened


gotorecord
I understand that 'DoCmd.GoToRecord , , acNewRec' works fine in
clearing the records in a form and presenting a fresh form for data entry for the user. I have a form which contains a few subforms. After data is
entered I need to clear the fields for new data entry, so I tried the
above code and it dosent seem to work. Is it because I am trying to clear
the records of the subform from the main form? Is there a way around
this? I really need to have the form holding all the subforms.
