Save Calculated Values From Form to Table
Thank you for taking the time to report an issue.
What's wrong... Please write below.
When I move to a New Record with no data inserted on the Form, my Text Box calculated values show "#TYPE!", obviously because no input variables have been inserted in thedisplayed New Record.
How do I stop the display of #TYPE! and have the Text Boxes remain simply blank until appropriate data is inserted into the New Record.
It starts showing the values in the textbox when it gets the focus (cursor on it/click on it) for every field, until I go to the next/previous record or close the form. When the form is closed and later reopened or gone to the next record (see onCurrent function), if the calculated field has focus when switching records/(re)opening only the field with focus shows it's value. All other calculated fields keep hiding their values until they get focus (once) again.
Anybody knows of this problem and how to solve it (permanently)?
BTW, I'm using windows vista 32-bit with Access 2007 on this project
The second field is a calculated "Acceleration". This value is almost always 0.3*[Base Cost]. I can enter =[Base Cost]*0.3 in the control source for the field in my form and it looks great in the form.but I need this data to save the "Acceleration" value to the record in the table.
A second concern is that occasionally there are deviations from the [Base Cost]*0.3 formula and I need to be able to enter those and have it save to the table.
The same applies to my "Total Cost" field, which is simply =[Base Cost]+[Acceleration].
I put this into the calculated control and it works just fine but doesn't save in the corresponding table.
I 've got my form created and the table created and I'm pulling the values that are typed into the form into the table. Most all the values that are typed go directly into the table, butthere are a couple that have to be calculated.
I can get the value calculated, but I can't get it to import into the table, or I can get a value to import directly to the table. But I can get both to work at the same time (this is all for one box).
Here is the expression I use to calculate the value (but this value will not import):
The value needs to be imported into the "1 Total Cost" field in the table.
Can anyone help in advising a method without creating a table? This would save on memory
is used to enter data and place it into the table. The form correctly places data into the table. I have a problem with one of the calculated fields in the table. There are six other numeric fields (columns) which I need to average.
The data represents multiple physiological measurements on the same person. Each field (column) is important and the average of the values is central to the data.
I need to calculate the average of the six fields and permanently store the average as a field in the table since the values will be used in a report and it will also be exported to a statistical program.
I Made a command button to recalculate the field values (For Emergency if somewhere accidentally was left not calculated)
here is My Code:
Me.Sumall = Me.Quantity * Me.Unitprice
It works only the current record (Which I See on the form)
My task was: To search the given field values and if there was not calculated then to be recalculated that field values (With Given Criteria
The calculated fields are part of a pivot table/pivot chart that I use to sort the data that is collected. the problem is that these are not any run of the mill calculated fields, we're talking about an IIF statement that has four different conditions that is based on another calculated field in the query.
Ive tried to create forms and reports from the query but the calculated fields wont transfer over.
Am I stuck recreating the calculated fields in a the form or is there an easier way
On my form that is displaying the data, I have a calculated field (a number). I want to add a search criteria that says. If calculated field is > "entered_value" Then .
What I can't figure out is how to reference the calculated field in Visual Basic. When I did dates I just referenced the column, but since this calculated field doesn't have a column (and from what I have read I should not create a column to store it), I can't figure out how to reference it
