Publishing database- Shut down run-time errors

I'm handing my database off to a client who doesn't want to split it, but also doesn't want to see any potential VBA Run-time errors. I compiled the code and digitally signed the database.

Is there a way to shut down the VBA run-time errors to a generic "error" message, or no error message at all? We don't want any users to have the option of ever pressing "debug" and getting into the

Setting up relationships between back-end tables and front-end queries
I have an Access 2010 database that has a front end and a back end. Both are located in a shared folder on our server.

I am trying to work through the process of publishing this database to SharePoint 2010.

When I run the Web Compatibility Checker, I get the following errors:

Relationships that are not associated with a valid lookup field are incompatible with the Web.

These errors ( 3 ) are all associated with one query called Q_COMPANYDATA that is based on ODBC-linked tables on our SQL server.


Runtime Problem
I've been working on a database for 2 months with no problems. for the first time, I got an error message which read: "Execution of this application has stopped due to a run-time error. The application can't continue and will be shut down." I have never seen this message before and I have no idea what is causing it. Do I just need to reinstall the run-time engine?


correcting typographical errors
I am learning how to use Access. I have some large sets of data that I am importing from Excel and I am figuring out how to turn a flat database into a relational database (which is a very new concept to me and I am trying to get my head around it).
So I import data as a flat database and then I run the wizard to turn it into a relational database.
The thing that is bugging me is I get to a stage where Access wants to correct typographical errors. It gives me the option of making a change or selecting "Leave as is". The trouble is I don't want to correct any typographical errors. Access thinks it sees errors when there are none. BUT it flags hundreds of errors and I can't find away to "Leave as is" for all of these in one go. Instead I have to select "Leave as is" for each record in turn. This is very time consuming. Does anyone know what I am talking about and is there an easier way? I am using Access 2010 (which I think is pretty much the same as Access 2007).


Too Few Parameters
I am having a terrible time with a line of code / query.

Set appraisalRS = appraisalDB.OpenRecordset("qsAppraisalData_Output" )

simply sets a recordset. My problem is I keep getting an error when the code runs. Too few parameters. Expected 1.

I can open and run the query from the database window with no errors. I can open and run each of the queries feeding the main query with no errors.


Handle Run-Time Errors in VBA
When you are programming an application, you need to consider what happens when an error occurs. An error can occur in your application for one of two of reasons. First, some condition at the time the application is running makes otherwise valid code fail. For example, if your code attempts to open a table that the user has deleted, an error occurs. Second, your code may contain improper logic that prevents it from doing what you intended. For example, an error occurs if your code attempts to divide a value by zero. Learn how to trap run-time errors.


Autonumber field resets when publishing database to SharePoint 2010
I have a very simple table with ID (autonumber) and some other text fields. A while ago I made an append query to my ID field, starting at 9000.9001.9002.

After publishing my database to SharePoint 2010, I discovered that all IDs were reset to 1.2.3 and so on. Is this a well known problem, and can it be solved


Error in Runtime Only
when I run my database in access 2007 I do not get any errors. when I run it in access 2007 RT I get errors and it crashes and shuts down. I don't understand how you can fix an error if their is no warning an error is occurring?


Run time vs Full Version
I have created a database , split the database , and now I have multiple user ready to key into a form to update the table on the back end.

Sent in a request for multiple liscenses and it was denied. They told me to create the database so that they could use the database in Run Time.

Is there something that I have to do in order to allow the users to do the same work through Run Time


Debugging and bypassing errors while running a query
I encountered several overflow, divide-by-zero errors while running a query. It is hard to debug this query. The errors occur only on some of the records. If I use breakpoint, it will take a very long time to step through before encountering a problematic record. Did anyone encounter similar problems and any suggestion to debug such a query?

How can I skip the errors while running the query? I have to force-close Access to stop the query from running when the errors appear


Run macros in different database
I am working with three different databases, all of which work together in certain areas, normally through linked tables. One database gets updated via csv files and the other databases get backed up primarily via this database. I am trying to automate the update process. I run the primary database update first and then I need to call macros from the other two databases to run and update the other databases. My thought was to call all of the macros from one master macro (or code) that would run daily and update the databases. In short, I am having trouble calling the macros in the secondary databases to run from the primary database.
I managed to accomplish this using the RunApp macro action but because it doesn't pause I run into a bunch of errors. Is there a better way to do this


Query for TIME
I have a column of data formatted as Date/Time and the value is displayed as HH:MM:SS AM/PM. I am trying to run a query whereby values are between 8 am and 4 pm. Can someone tell me how to write this expression? Here is what I tried and got errors:

During Office Hours: IIF([admit time]between 8:00:00 AM And 4:00:00 PM, "Yes", "No")

I am not certain how to define the time itself.


Run Multiple Queries Simultaneously
I currently have a database that creates local tables from ODBC connections to a DB2 database. These queries are run each morning. At present, each of them are run sequentially. As some of them are very large, it may take a significant amount of time before it finishes and runs the next make-table query.

What I would like to do is figure out a way to run them all at the same time. My thoughts were to possibly run each query in a separate instance of Access, preferably without having to create a separate Access database for each query. However, that is an option.

The idea comes from being able to create 2 databases, have them both open, and then run a make table query in both, at the same time.

Updating Records in Microsoft Access with an Update Query
A situation may arise where we need to update many records in a database table when certain information changes or needs to be modified.
A Microsoft Access Update Query updates specified values in a table for all records or for those records that match a specified criteria.
It is possible to update records manually in a database table, either via a form or through the tables datasheet, however this may take a very long time. Changing records manually is not only time consuming, it is also inefficient, and lends itself to errors as you update the records.
The best way to handle this type of event, the updating of many records in a database table, is to use an Update Query to make the changes to data in one operation. You will save yourself time, and eliminate the possibility of manual errors.

Trapping errors from RowSource query
How does one trap run-time exception errors which occur as a result of RowSource settings (which were set using the Properties window in Design View)?

I'm working with a large codebase of VBA written in Access 2003. In over 100 instances, the developer used RowSource to enter a SELECT query, from the Properties window (not at runtime), with RowSourceType = "Table/Query".

I'm tasked with adding error handling throughout the code, but I can't find a way to trap errors which might happen when the RowSource queryexecutes.


Access 2007 on Win 7 64 Bit - Errors
I just moved my Access 2007 to my new laptop with Windows 7 64-Bit.

Installation was OK but I get errors when trying to work in the database. Here is a description of the error:
This error occurs when an event has failed to run because Microsoft Office Access cannot evaluate the location of the logic for the event. For example, if the OnOpen property of a form isset to =[Field], this error occurs because Access expects a macro or event name to run when the event is fired.


DELETE column in TABLE
Is it possible to create a query that DELETES column in a table in ACCESS 2007?
the reason is, because I receive a very big database from my supplier, I need to delete a large number of column that are not needed by us. now there are 200 fields and I only need 15.

when publishing to complete database it takes to much time and is way to big in file Size.


Runs alright but shuts down when trying to view code
I am creating a new database that will automate creating charts from the database data. I write most of it in VB. The database works fine and compiles. I close it and shut down for the night.

When I open the db the next day everything runs and works alright but when I try to make design changes or view the code the error box pops up and says there was an error and Access has to shut down, with the option of compacting and reopening access check box available and creates a backup. Why?


Closing down Access takes ages
I'm using Access 2000 and every time I shut down my database, it takes ages (the screen locks up) and it creates a duplicate copy of the database.
