Parameters passed to multiple sub reports
looking for a little help in passing parameters from a form to a report which has multiple sub reports.
Ive seen a few articles on how to pass parameters from a form to a report which has one record source but cant seem to find any demonstrating how to pass parameters from the form to multiple sub reports contained within the same main report.

Passing Multiple Parameters to Access Database
I have had a lot of trouble passing multiple parameters from Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 to a query on a Microsoft Access 2010 database. I am coding in C# in Visual Studio. After hours ofsearching,

The main problem is, I do not know the number of parameters I will need to pass into to the query before I run the file (but I could potentially know this number before I run the query). Because of this, I cannot hardcode ?'s into my query and pass the corresponding number of parameters.

The number of parameters I am passing depends on a file searched earlier in my code. So, I could have anywhere from one to hundreds of parameters.

One away around this problem is to call individual queries for each parameter, and compile a table based on each item returned. I would rather not do this because I want to make use of SQL’s ORDER BY function, which I know is more efficient than sorting a table using C# code after I have called the queries.

Passing parameters to forms
First of all I would like to thank RODMC for the advice about that bugging problem with displaying data in datasheet view.thanks very much again.
I got a problem with passing parameters to forms.
The situation is:I have 9 or ten forms with two data fields changing all the time.
The forms are named: answer_form1.ans_form10
the the data table doesn't change.
the columns changing: in answer_form1 = quest2res1
in answer_form2= quest2res2 and so forth.
I want to create a main form and pass the form name and the columns in parameters so that the form will open in the right mode by the user's selection
Can someone help in that or is there an example that I can study that?

Form to enter multiple query parameters
I am trying to create a form that users may use to execute a query. Simple enough however I want to set it so that users may search for multiple parameters in a field from a list on the form.

For example, the form would have something like

FieldName1: Please select one or more of the following.
[this next part would be a selection of some sort, check boxes?, combo box?]

Not Complete

The user would then select which of the 4 items above they want to see in the query (note again that the above parameters are all contained in the same field).

Passing Parameters to Queries for Report Generation
I'm trying to create a subroutine that will run a report for me, and also pass the report a date range in which to use. Using the qdf.Parameter option I am able to set the values of the date parameters in the queries, but when I try and export the report it prompts me to enter the parameters.

multiple input parameters on a form
I have 4 input parameters on a form, and want the user to be able to enter none, any, or all. I am trying to then build a single query to use whatever parameters they entered (or did not enter) instead of the separate queries in a conditional macro as I have now.

I am using Access 2003

Parameters used in multiple queries
I need to build multiple queries and they will all be ran inside of a macro. Several of the queries have dates that I will have user entered parameters each time the query runs. Is there away that I can set up parameters where the user enters them in once and every query that uses dates will use those parameters? Currently, my queries are set-up as simple parameter querieswith this in the date field criteria.

Passing parameters byref from VB to ASP
Is anyone aware of any limitations in passing values 'ByRef' from a VB COM component to ASP.
I am returning a boolean value from my VB function which works fine but I also need to return a long value. I am trying to do this in the normal ByRef way but constantly get back nothing. I have debugged my VB function and the value is available and is propagated in the ByRef parameter but I cannot use this in my ASP page.

Parameter Passing
How can I pass parameters from a combo box on a form into a begin date and an end date field in a query? I may be inputting it improperly, but I tried

Show error message after query with bad parameters
I have a couple queries that accept their parameters from forms. I have one form with three options, one of which is autofilled, one date picker, and on field the user enters.

When the user enters in parameters and hits Ok, the intended form pulls up, but only the tab of the form. but with blank fields which would tell the user that the parameters were wrong.

If there a way the parameter form show a error message or something if the parameters entered by the user are not found? Probably in VBA I am assuming.

Or it would even be helpful to get the form to at least open, but as of right now the form leaves the user stuck.

Make dialog box to enter multiple parameters at once
I have a report which shows shipping information and currently has a form which outputs the data based on what dates you enter into the form. However, there are certain parts of the report that need information for a different date.

How do I create a sort of "dialog" box that allows the user to enter multiple parameters all at once.

Crosstab Query Keeps Prompting for Parameters, Even after they're entered
I have two queries. The first, is a query that pulls data and gets it's parameters (client, begin date, end date) from controls on a form. The second, is a crosstab query based on query 1. Even after I supply the parameters via form (which doesn't close so I know that isn't the issue) the query will run but then ask for parameters again? If I hit cancel on the parameter dialogquery runs like normal.

I have parameters supplied in query 1, and parameters defined in both query 1 and cross tab query.

Creating a form to get parameters to use in Multiple Reports
I have several different reports based on queries (basicly the same information output many different ways)
I want to create a form to gather the parameters and then create a [OK] to execute the report.
I have created the combo boxes and they work fine. But I cannot get the report to process by selecting
the [OK] button I have created. I dont want to specify the individual report name on the OK button as
this same Form that gathers the parameters is going to be be used on number of forms.

I was able to make this work in the past using Access 2002, but I cannot get it to work in Access

Passing Parameters to a Stored Procedure, getting results, but incorrect usage?
I'm pretty new to working with an access file through vb. This is of low priority since I am getting the results that I want, but I just don't understand why it's working this way.

I have a MS access 2007 .accdb file that contains a query named addStudentRegistration with the following sql


It seems to just get the parameters in order and disregards anything I put for the parameter name. So to be more specific. How exactly should the AddWithValue function fromSystem.Data.OleDb.OleDbParameter be used? And what is the proper way to call a query from a .accdb file with parameters passed in if this method is incorrect?

Add query parameters in with vbCode?
I am working on a db where I have a query updated with parameters on a form. I need to collect the recordset out of this query to email. My function does pull the data as long as I don't have any parameters set inside of query. Can someone help me with the code to set the parameters in the query? I keep getting Error "Too few parameters. Expected 1." Here are the codes I am using...

Passing Parameters to a Query Without Parameter Prompts
I have a query that requires a parameter to work. I need to pass a form field (entered by the user) to the query as the parameter, but I don't want the parameter box to pop-up asking the user for input when the button is clicked to run the parameter.

I tried using DoCmd.RunSQL, but, if I understand correctly, this can't be used for a select statement. I used it with updating and inserting with no problems.

I'm trying to use qdf.Parameters() now, but I still get the popup. Is there a way to pass parameter without the parameter prompts?

Excel passing parameters to Access for queries
I've got a piece of code in Excel which links to an Access database and runs queries in it. Some of the queries need parameters which are being passed to it using this piece of code:-

If param1 "" Then cmd.Parameters(0) = param1

The query I'm running requires 1 parameter which is contained in param1 (and I've stepped through the code to make sure it's there).

When I try to pass the parameter, Item cannot be found in the collection corresponding to the requested name or ordinal

If I miss out the the line of code above (leaving the parameter empty) and try to execute the query, I get the following error message:-
Too few parameters. Expected 1

It looks like I need to pass the parameter, but when I do it isn't accepted.

Designing a customizable report creator using forms & queries
I am trying to create a form that will populate parameters in a query and output the results as a printable report. I have created the query and the form that displays all the parameters in the query.

I've also added a run button to the form that runs the query (I eventually plan to have it run the report but I thought I would get the query to work first). The end userwill define the desired parameters on the form (note that they may choose some or all of the parameters).

When I bring up the form, it seems to run the query without any parameters (it pulls all the records in the table). I don't want it to run the query until the user inputs the parameters. After you input some of the parameters and hit the run button, the query results pop up showing all the records in the table. It seems as if the query didn't recognize the parameters.

I have written queries and reports before where a box pops up for each parameter. Do I somehow need to tell the query to get the parameters from the form? I've also built forms before butthey were designed to input data directly in to tables.

Form to supply parameters to a report
I have created a form to supply parameters to a report. Once I open the report access opens a form that serves to collect the parameters. I enter the parameters and than access is to retrieve the information.

The report comes up without any data . It only shows the labels.

Report From CrossTab Query
I am trying to build a report that uses a crosstab query as its data source. The crosstab query has three input parameters and functions as expected by itself. My problem is when I attempt to connect the query to my report, the report behaves as if I am not passing the parameters.

The default parameter dialog box keeps appearing - three times, once for each parameter.

My three parameters are: Factory, Year, Month.

DoCmd.OpenReport "SHByFactoryDetail", acPreview, "Factory=''3M'', Year=2011, Month=12 |

It just ignores the parmeters that I provide above and asks me to re-enter the parameters again via the default parameter dialog box.
