Making texboxes invisible depending on the value in them

How do you make a textbox invisible depending on the value within then. I have a continous form which shows a textbox for tool numbers. However, when the tool number is "UNKNOWN" how do I make it that it substitutes in the Serial number of the Tool in its place?

Making a Command Buttong Visible/Invisible

I am working on a database in which I am trying to write some code which displays a command button dependant on another action.

In my example, I have two check boxes which I have set up to allow only one choice. So when you check one, the other becomes unchecked!

Behind both these check boxes I have managed to write the code which does make the command button visible/invisible depending on which check box is checked. See bellow


However, the crucial bit I am missing is that it does the same response for ever record. So if I want it invisible in one record that's fine,but then if you go to the next record where you want it to be visible, and have checked the correct box for this to happen, it is still invisible. What I need is some additional coding which ties it to the current record?

Make Text Box Invisible

I am trying to get a report to make either one of two text boxes invisible depending on the users input.

So if txt15 is blank then visible = FALSE this should then reveal txt18 which should then have data in.

I have looked through the forum and found something similar to the following.

Private Sub FormHeader_Format(Cancel As Integer, FormatCount As Integer)

Me.Txt15.Visible = Not IsNull(Me.Txt15)
Me.Txt18.Visible = Not IsNull(Me.Txt18)

It works to a degree, but if txt15 is Blank it does not make the textbox invisible thus will not display Txt

Multiple fields set to visible or invisible based on field content

I got lots and lots of fields need to be set to visible or invisible based on field content. Manually coding of this is possible it just takes forever. This is what I am wondering (ifthis is possible or exists or not):

If I had say 10 fields all all those 10 fields were to be set to invisible or visible depending on a single check mark box, could I say 'draw' something maybe a special 'frame' around those10 fields so that I can refer to the 'frame' and everything in that area could be invisible or visible based upon the check mark box versus having to code 10 fields individually?

Making text field visable/invisable on a check box

I want to make a field invisible if a check box is ticked, but return it to being visible if the check box becomes unticked. I can easily make it invisible, but I am struggling with the return process.

Me.Home_Goals.Visible = Nz(Me.Home_Walkover, "") = "Inactive

Setting fields visible/invisible

I have created a form that contains a combo box with 4 choices. I also have 3 fields which I have set to be invisible. What I want to be able to do is depending on the choice made in the combo box determines which field becomes visible.

I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. I'm pretty new to VBA but am quite good with macros and still can't make it work. I have tried setting my field [via] event as got focus, lost focus and change. I can get it to work if I choose the first choice the relevant field becomes visible but if I choose anything else the relevant fields do not become visible and the first field won't go invisible.

How to Lock Texboxes based on another Textbox value in a form

In the form all texboxes(values) are populated based on the selection of a value from a combo box.Say for example, the combo box has values from 1 to 100 & there are few Textboxes txt1,txt2,txt3,txt4,txt5. The possible values for txt1 are X1,X2,Y1&Y2. i.e., whatever we select from a combo, txt1 value should be from one of those four values. Now my question is, how to lock other textboxes txt2,txt3,txt4 if txt1 value is either X1/X2 else unlock

Uploading a table

Some information in our customer accounts has become uninterpretable due to merging from another software and shows as squares amongst the text. When I export this data into an excel list, these signs are invisible but exist in form of a line break (wrapped cell). I format the cells as unwrapped and upload into access but it corrupts. Where those invisible signs are, it gets treated like comma seperated and the content breaks into the next column. I can't find/replace those signs in excel as they are invisible there, so there must be a way of formatting while uploading into access that they get ignored
