How To Take Screen Capture Of Access Form ?

Copy an image of a window or screen
In the past, the PRINT SCREEN key did what it says - it sent the current screen of text to your printer. Now, pressing PRINT SCREEN captures an image of your entire screen, also known as a "screen shot" or "screen capture", and copies it to the Clipboard in your computer's memory. You can then paste (CTRL+V) the image into a document, e-mail message, or other file. If you want, you can print the image from the application that you pasted it into.

Complex issue in MS access
Im doing a project in access which I have created tables, forms and reports I have applied user secuity in my project.some users have editable permissions and some doesnt have.
In my form I have two fields which will capture system date & time as start time and end time.
start time will capture the time when the user starts keyin and the end time will capture the time after the record has been inserted in the table.
My problem is for non-editable permission users,the end time is not storing the time after inserting record since it will capture only after insertion and it goes to update state for whom doesnt have update permissions.
Hence I need code to capture and store the end time after the users filling all fields and before insert in to table.
Hope you guys got my problem. Plz provide me a solution

Capturing Still Image From A Camera
I have an acceess app, it is a basic form with student information, in it I
have an image object, I have a button under the image object when you click
it , it open a directory tree, where I select the appropriate student
picture. The Problem is, this process requires a two steps procedure, I
have to first capture the student image, save it. Then load it into the
access app.

Does anyone have an example or can tell me how I can create a button that
will capture the picture, save it and load it unto the form image object.
Since the image is linked, if I can capture and save the image within
access, I can very quickly load it .

Sending Email to mulitple users from Access
I have a database and I was requested to setup a process to email various "Process Owners" on a click of a button. I have tried doing it with a macro, I tried some ways using queries and tables but I can not seem to get it right. A form is filled in with process owners, this is done by a drop down choice, the table these Process Owners are in also contains a column with their email address. I want to capture the email address based on the forms selection. I tried to use a query to capture the email address into a "create table procedure" but now I want to take that information and put it into the To: in outlook. I use Access 2007 and outlook 2007.

in a macro, is it possible to set the option in the SendObject, Action Arguments To field to except multiple emails? I can capture one from a form: =[FOMRS]![(form name)]![(field name)], but I can only get one field to work. Any ideas or what is the best way to attempt this? I have 11 fields in all to be captured from the query/table

Capture or Identify Cancel Button on Excel Import
I am using the following VBA code to call to the Import Excel process within Access:

DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdImportAttachExcel

I have recently identified that if a user clicks on the Cancel button on this screen that the other code I have beyond that displays a message that I don't want them to see. I would like to put in a catch that if the user clicks on Cancel that it will display another message before exiting without doing anything else. Does anyone know if there is a way to capture or identify if a user clicks on Cancel in VBA?

I understand that if you setup your own Message, you can specify vbCancel or vbOK just after it to help direct the right messages to your users. Just not sure if there is some built in code that I can reference in the same manner

form with no database window
A while back I downloaded an access files but can’t remember from where nor can I find it on my hard drive.
When you opened this access database the menu form would open. It wasn’t full screen, it was
a rectangular form that was centered in the screen.

I’m not sure of the size but it filled maybe 30% of the screen. What I want to figure out here, is how they managed to completely remove the entire database window.

All you saw was the form (which was a menu) and all selections were pop-ups. You couldn't even tell it was an Access Database, it looked like a Visual Basic program.

Creating a Microsoft Access Splash Screen
Software applications often display a splash screen when launching. With Microsoft Access you will often see the splash screen displayed before being presented with the database switchboard or similar form.
The splash screen in Microsoft Access will usually display a logo of the company that has created the database application, contact details of the person responsible for the administration and maintenance of the database or will sometimes display other useful information or tips associated with the database.
We can use the screen to display randomly selected tips or help topics, providing the tip will benefit the end user. To avoid irritating the user, we should also provide them with the option of not having the splash screen appear in the future.

Form in Datasheet View

access automatically positioning textbox at top of screen
I have a very long memo field that extends past the bottom of the screen. When editing the end of the memo field, access automatically positions the form so the top of the textbox is at the top of the screen, moving the area I am working with off of the screen.

Is there a property I am missing somewhere to stop this, or can I do it with vba?

Capture event from child form (not sub form)
Is there any way to capture an event of a child form? The child form is a separate form, thus not a subform. Something like this:

Form with Chart
I have a chart that is generated on a form. It is an unbound form and the reason for putting it on a form instead of a report was so it could be copy/paste from the screen.
