if-then statement in vba

I have a form called restaurantinfo with a save button on it, and some simple vba behind it. A text box called savedtext appears when it is clicked to show the user that their info has been saved:

Private Sub savebutton_Click()
Me.savedtext.Visible = True
End Sub

How can I make an (if-then) statement that says that if any further changes are made to the info (pulling from table restaurantinfo) on the form, then Me.savedtext.Visible = False ?

Copy SQL statement from query to VBA
Rather than typing complex query statements into VBA code, developers often mock up a query graphically, switch it to SQL View, copy, and paste into VBA.
If you've done it, you know how messy it is sorting out the quotes, and the line endings.

Which is better? checking in VBA or SQL
I currently have a VBA statement that runs SQL to append to a table. I want to first check if there is already a record with the same name in the table to avoid duplicate entries.

Is it best to check before the query is run in the VBA, or in the SQL statement it's self to avoid this problem better?

I'm not sure how I even would check the table with SQL.

How would I write a Before UpdateIf Statement
I need VBA help with an If statement in the before update that would check if txtTitle, txtVWI, cboDepartment, cboVWICategory, cboApprover had data and if so it would set focus to the subform (frmVWISubform) text box (txtStepNumber) and if not then it cancel and exit sub.

Msg Dialog Box Prompt
Request some assistance,

I created a button with the following vba action statement

Private Sub Refreshtxttrig_Click()
DoCmd.RunSQL "drop table [Table Name]"
End Sub

(This statement deletes a specific table within access.)

It works well, except when the Table is missing or I accidently click twice, it executes the statement but brings up a "runtime error." instead.

I would like to create a statement that will bring up a MsgBox instead of a runtime error and tells the user that the Table has already been purged

Two VBA Problems
Trying to do a couple quick things. I'm working in a software that interfaces with Access.

First problem:

Somehow this results in an infinite loop. But, I have printed the counter instead of the message and it reads 1.

Second problem:

This is actually going to fit in the first part at some point. But, the main issue is that the second eval(temp) statement is not working. I don't understand why because I use it the first time and the .test1 = 1 statement shows up fine, so I know it is entering the if statement being tested as a string.

Test File Extension
Just joined and looking forward to hearing from everyone.!
Here's my first Access VBA question:

I have three types of files under certain directories ie. *.log, *.csv and *.txt
Hopefully, while inside an If statement, I'd like to test the extension of the files it has encountered.Then, after the test is satisfied, I would like the code to exit the if statement and go to another public function to import the file extension it has found.
I'm just learning vba, so

Delete last character in field based on criteria
I've done some vb.net programming but am new to vba. I hate to ask to be spoon fed a solution, but I am under a time constraint. I essentially want to delete the last character in a field only if that last character is an "M", "T" or an "R". Would putting this statement

Left([fieldName], Len([fieldName]) -1)

inside a loop and conditional statement essentially do it? I am unsure of the vba syntax though.

Possible to use this in VBA

between date to date in vba(syntax)
couple of quick questions.(same project as last time to those who helped) all going great, trying to sort the (now working) results a little more, first was by job number, now needs to be by job number and a DATE RANGE.

was originally filtering my recordset (successfully) with this (the debug.print return from the vba statement):

JobNumber Like '001*'

trying to work this into it:

JobNumber Like '001*' And ActivityDate = Between '#1/01/2000#' And '#06/30/2010#'

but not too sure on the syntax with the between statement in vba (its clear enough in the UI)

we're on a European date system (day/month/year) and use that in the UI, i've read I need to use (month/day/year) in vba, am doing so (let me know if I'm wrong there).
the above included date range gives me a missing operator error, i've tried a few variations on the way. I assume that having multiple filters in the .filter property of a recordset is
