Saving A Record Using Vba
if they have been added then the form needs to save and show the relevant message. but thisis where I run into trouble because I can't code it to do both I have tried various coding but none have worked bit stuck and need help
Thank you for taking the time to report an issue.
What's wrong... Please write below.
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.
While working with Access and VBA There are many VBA codes which we use very frequently for example:
Private Sub close_Click()
How to save this as Module and then call to a button
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
How do I save the record programmatically
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.
I have tried to use the import wizard and saving it spec then calling it using vba command however this seems to use the field width of the 1st few record/lines of the text which do notrepresent the full width of records.
