Search Records VBA?

I have a dbase I am working on that I want to be able to search all records and pull of those with matching fields.
I.E. a name, or catageory or number.

Orignally I used a microsoft template and changed what I needed but I decided to do it from the ground up to make it cleaner. Now that I have got to the search forms/tables I can not get it to work.

The question is can I do a search from a form, without using VB since I know not a thing about it.

Mailing Labels from a Search Form
I have a Search form (frmSearch) based on the method of Allen Browne (http://allenbrowne.com/ser-62.html) which I highly recommend as it creates queries on the fly. It is based on a query (qrySearch). I can easily export the results to Excel with a short VBA code I found (Send to Excel). What I need is to create labels from these results. I have created a report to generate labels using the Access 2007 Label wizard. This report is also based on the same query as the Search Form.

I thought that if I obtain my search results I could simply send these to the label Report using a macro ("Open Report"). Unfortunately all I get is ALL RECORDS RETURNED, not the search form subset of records in front of me.

I am unable to base the labels Report on the Search Form. Any ideas? Can this be done with a Macro or is it strictly VBA? If VBA, is there an example I can follow


VBA table population
This is my first post and I am relatively new to VBA but not to programming in general.I have a small table that I successfully created a small search function for and now I am trying to find a way to add records to the table.

As of right now I have a main form with 2 buttons, one for the search and one for the add. The form for the add is finished except for the VBA in the back end. The fields in the add form correspond to the fields in the table but I can't figure out how to go about getting new records into the table.

Is it an SQL INSERT statement? Or is there a built in function in VBA thatwill allow me to do this?

Search on Subform
I have a subform on a form. I know that there is a certain word in a field on the subform, but when I try to use the in-built search feature to search for it, I get an error.

It seems that the search on the subform only searches in the child records related to the current parent record.

Does anyone know how I can seearch in ALL records of ALL the parent records (if that makes sense


Using IIF & Like statements in query
Normally I would do this in VBA, but I'm intrigued as to whether I can do it in a query.

I'm building an advanced search for my DB and the user can select many option:

1) What field to search in
2) Whether to search the entire field, or Any part of the field
3) Whether to search all records, or just 'Live' Records.

To do this I'm trying to use the iif statement. But can't get the LIKE operator to work inside the iif.

eg:

IIf([srchCriteria1]=1,Like '*' & [name] & '*',[name])

This works fine if srchCriteria1 isn't '1' and the full name is found. But can't get it to search any part of field


Access Search box via VBA
I successfully created a form and a search box within Access using a VBA code. I am tasked with performing another search but now each unique identifier has multiple data associated with them that I need identified in my search form. Does anyone know how I can update the code to show these changes


search records and export
I have a project need to create a user interfact. The function of the interface, 1). allow end user enter a search range (date informat), 2). create a button which will do search and export the search result into a excel / CSV format file into a folder, 3). the exported file's name will be automatic set as exported date.
Do you think this one can be done without VBA? if yes, how to do that?


Search a Subform
I want to search a subform, of course the search only looks at the current form not all the records ever entered .
So I have in the subform a search btn

Text Box search of Form with a Combo as Part of Form search
I have started creating a database with a bound form. What I want to know is how to use either one of the records for a search for the related records associated with it or a separate text box to initiate the search. at the same time I want to replace say two of the fields text boxes with a combo box that will retrieve any and all records for the associated fields related to the search field, which will be two columns of data drop data.


Make a search function on a button that searches through records?
I tried creating a search button using the wizard for a customer database I created, however, the search function for the customers – sometimes it doesn’t work. Also I need to be able to search all the fields.

So if I search “Berlin” and there are multiple records with “Berlin” – I would like to display possible results containg the word "Berlin". Can this be done? If so, how can this be developed?


VBA code for my unbound Search form.
I have a search form, which is now unbound from my table, and by that I mean I have gone and set the form's Record Source to remain blank. I have also gone and set the Control Source ofeach text box and combo box to also remain blank.

I did this because when I would search for a record by a particular field, by Document Number for example, the data I typed into the text box, or selected in the combo box, would then bestored as a new record in my table, which I did not want.

So, by doing this my Search button no longer works.

Now, do I need to write a VBA code consisting of information that will let me search by each field? For instance, in my code do I need to include information that will let me search by theDocument Number, and/or File Type, and/or Revision, and/or Project, and/or Manufacturer, and so forth?

I have been searching all day for example VBA codes for searching, but have not been successful.


Exporting Search Results to Excel
Recently, I've been working on developing a comprehensive search form for my staff to use when searching for records on our database. I found an excellent VBA code example on the forum a few days back (Thanks again gromit!) and I'm trying to get the results of said search exported to an Excel spreadsheet when the user clicks the "Export" button.

I use a Private Function called "BuildFilter" that runs and evaluates all criteria entered when the "Search" button is clicked, but is there a way to call the search results into an OutputTo method?

The form I'm using displays the results in a subform based on a query with no criteria (as it is filled by the user) but currently the OutputTo method exports all records since the command is only calling the original blank query.

I'm hoping to call the BuildFilter's results, then transfer the data to Excel.


VBA Set default value
I have recently created a filter on a form which allows me to search records using a option group that then filters a combobox, as I have 5 different types of properties to search between,and I've got that part working fine.

However when I first open the form I would like the combobox filtered with the records for "type 1" (set as default within the option group) but the combobox displays ALL records - once I click into the other options the filter works fine.

but it's my first real crack at coding and I'm pretty happy with it .


New Record Problem (Carrying over previous search values)
I have two search fields in a form (txtbox) the values of those search fields are carried over to the new record.

How can I make sure that the values for the search fields are not carried over, and I am able to make a fresh blank NEW record ( did I emphasize that enough )

I have tried setting the search values to null when starting a new record however, I am unable to see those values when scrolling through previous records. I would like to have search values populated for its respective record and not disappear when the user looks through previous records.


multi value search in textbox of a form
I have a form that onload displays all records in a form. I also have a searchbox with a button that should be able to take multiple search criterias (from multiple colums in a table or query). And then a reset button to display records one more.

The search strings are the following fieldnames in a contacts table, they are all of dataytpe text.
LastName
FirstName
EmailAddress

The search ctiteria would be based on LIKE, and I guess OR between to seperate them.
Should I have strfilter variable where the different fieldvalues are concatenated in the same string?


Search button as an inputbox to search for records
I would like to create a search button (Input box)that searches for existing customer records using vb in access 2010. For example when the user enters in either a customer record number or customer first name or surname their customer details of the booking will be displayed on the form.


Search Query - Retrieving records with null fields
I have a search form that works great, but only if every field is populated. Basically, I can search for one or all of the parameters and it will retrieve records that meet those parameters. It will not, however retrieve a record if any of those fields are null.

Is there a fix so that it will include records with null fields?


Creating a search function
I am trying to be able to search by a person (which this person has multiple entries) and it brings up a list of all the entries dealing with that person. I assume this needs relationships built between the list of names and the main table correct? Also, how do I get this to work? I have the initial window set up where you either click add new record or search records. I would like the search records to be different then the form that comes up with new record. Someone types in for example my name: Jennifer; and all the records that I have entered pop up in a box below. Then they can select which record they want to work on . click, and the form that normally would open (the one with all the data in it) pops up for that corresponding entry. how can I do this? If I can get some hints, I should be able to figure it out


VBA search code
Having a little trouble with some VBA code designed to grab a number from a form (MRN) then use this data to find the corresponding data in a table making a small change to that record (changing a checkbox to true).

The table opens but only the first record is updated. The code works well as a standard VBA search code on another form.


Search Field
Does anyone have any idea how to create anything similar to a 'search field?'. This would be a means of right-clicking into a field and entering a word or partial word to search for records meeting that criteria or something better.

Currently, this field stores a variety of search words in the format and for example:
INVOICES/RECEIPT/BANK/PAYMENT/

Entering any of these words in that field will return all relevant records but I am not sure this is the best way to do it.
