Saving A Record Using Vba

Problems with saving the record - some fields don't save until another edit and save
Having some problems with a form. I have code in command buttons and code in the form to handle saving a dirty record but there are some issues:

1) saving some fields at time of record entry shows "Null" until the record is saved and another edit is done then the fields show related data.

2) Saving dialog box sometimes triggers before all fields are entered.

I am trying to get things working with some protection on data entry but it is a struggle. Keep in mind that there are a few related fields that are there for testing purposes. Those are marked "REF"

I am attaching the form and some of the necessary table info for review.


VBA Code To Global VBA
s I have a question about saving VBA As Global Module.

While working with Access and VBA There are many VBA codes which we use very frequently for example:
Private Sub close_Click()
DoCmd.Close
End Sub

How to save this as Module and then call to a button


Cancel saving a record
Just a quick one today. wondered if anyone has any (nice, easy to understand) ways of stopping a record saving to a table.
I have a 'cancel' command button on my form but even when pressed the record still saves in the table as I have an autonumber field (so it just saves the autonumber and leaves the other fields blank)?
Any advice would be very welcome; I have had a look at other posts which describe setting a global variable and using the 'Cancel = True', with focus on the before update event - I did try this yesterday but couldn't get it to work properly; it was still saving the record in the table. I'm still in the testing phases of my database and keep ending up with hundreds of records unnecessarily


Saving a record programmatically
I have a form with a command button that runs a couple of update queries. But before these queries are run, I would like to save the current record. These queries will be using the data the current record and so it needs saving.

How do I save the record programmatically

Access 2007- Find a Record Command Button on Form Doesn't Work
I created an Update Record Form to update existing recordsthat are stored in a table with a find record button that no longer works.

When I first created the Find Record Command Button it worked beautifully, just as intended, I have spend HOURS researching and trial and error trying to get this button to work again by trying different VBA codes and no luck.

Twice, the find record button actually worked and when I exited the form after saving my changes, and went back in and tried it, it stopped working again. I don't understand.

I need to create a VBA code that allows me to find a record based upon any of 13 fields. For instance, I need for the button to work if someone wanted to search according to File Type, orOwner, or Document Number, and so forth.


Hide VBA code from users
If your database contains Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) (Visual Basic for Applications (VBA): A macro-language version of Microsoft Visual Basic that is used to program Windows applications and is included with several Microsoft applications.) code, you can hide that code by saving your Microsoft Office Access database (database: A collection of data related to a particular subject or purpose. Within a database, information about a particular entity, such as an employee or order, is categorized into tables, records, and fields.) in the .accde file format. Saving a database as an .accde file compiles all VBA code modules, removes all editable source code, and compacts the destination database. Your VBA code retains its functionality, but the code cannot be viewed or edited. In general, the database will continue to function as usual - you can still update data and run reports.
In this article you'll learn: Create an .accde file, Functionality that is changed in an .accde file, Issues with modifying forms, reports, or modules, Restrictions on saving a database as an .accde file, How references work with .accde files.

Saving record changes to table in form
I have a form [Emp_Edit] which lets you search for a record and then edit the fields it returns. I cannot get this form to save the changes. I get the error “The changes you requested to the table were not successful because they would create duplicate values in the index, primary key, or relationship.

Change the data in the field or fields that contain duplicate data,remove the index, or redefine the index to permit duplicate entries and try again.”
I have checked the underlying table and there are no conflicts. I think that the access is trying to save this as a new record instead of saving changes to the existing record. The form is based on the “Emp” table only.


VBA Crashing
This is something that is happening more and more often to me. After working on a project, specifically when VBA is involved. If I test before closing the project everything is fine. I close the project and reopen it and when opening a form or pressing a button access will crash. it has to reload and anything that has VBA coding will no longer function. I can no longer edit VBA or even delete a portion of the database that uses VBA without Access crashing.

Anyone have an idea as to why this is happening or how I can keep it from happening in the future.

In cases I've have to give up on VBA and use embedded macros instead, which I hate. Luckily I'm pretty anal about saving several copies at different points in the project, it's just annoying to have to redo an hour or so worth of work.


Saving Record in Access
Whenever I try to enter any record in the access form, it saves the record by default. how to get rid of this? I do not want records to be saved until it is asked to save.


form and pop form saving to different records
I have created a database which 4 forms (1 main form, and 3 pop up).
In the main form, after the CutSize field has been populated through a combo box, one of the three pop-ups pop up depending on the value of the Cutsize field. The user then enters information in the pop up, that should be saved on the same record with the information from the main form.

problem: the information is saving to consecutive records, not hte same one.
the pop up saves to one record, then the main form to the record after.

is there a way to have both forms save to the same record. perhaps my database design is faulty, but I have deadlines that I must meet coming up rather quickly

Save/Add Record and Start New Record buttons
I created a form to enter new records into my database. I need to add two buttons at the end. One that will save the record info I just entered and start a new record. Another to save the record info I just entered and close the form.

I have been searching and searching for the correct VBA code to use for these but what I have tried isn't saving the record into the source database. It is like it disappearing into thin air.

When I created the form I used the "Add Existing Fields" feature to add the correct fields to my form. I thought that would allow them to be linked to the correct table.


Filter Without Saving the Data Used
I have a search form that consists of text boxes and combo boxes. If I type 10001, for example, into the Document Number text box and click my search button, it searches and pulls up the records just fine; however, when I exit out of the form and check my table, 10001, has been added as a new record.

I do not want this to happen. I had written a vba code to set the form to read-only thinking that would help, but it hasn't.

Here's the code I used to make the form read-only and for it to open to a blank form:

[CODE]

I have a couple other forms as well, such as an add record form, an update record form, and a delete record. I made separate forms, so we could better control our documents as all are restricted with passwords, except the search record form.

query does not work after saving
I have a query which has worked in the past. and when it finally came up with results, it hung and did not display the number of records. I tried changing the query. Before saving, I ran the query and it ran quickly, giving the expected number of records (162).

After I saved the query, it hung again when I ran it. I tried re-creating the query from scratch.

Again it ran before saving but hung after saving. Compact and repair also did not help. I am running Access 2007.


Close without saving button?
I have a form that is used to create or update a new table, and 2 buttons, save, and close w/o saving, however I can't seem to make close w/o saving work? The table gets updated as soon as focus changes. I'm not sure how to implement this,
