Unwanted parameter message
Unwanted header in subreport
When I print or print-preview a report with a subreport, a completely unwanted header appears and overwrites the first line of each subreport. It cannot be seen in report view. In appearance it is like a watermark: that is, it is faint while the actual data is in a normal font. The text is the name of the subreport, in this case, Feedback Message subreport. What do I need to do to get rid of this message
Unwanted parameter value pop-up
I dont really know what is going on here.
I am trying to open a form and now it keeps asking me for a parameter value:
Service.[Service_ID]. The thing is I have no idea where, in the code, Access is looking for this value.
It seems to be doing this prior to the onset of my form load& before any form events happen (e.g., when I walk through the code, the parameter popup appears before any of these events are kicked off: Open Load Resize Activate Current). Prior to any these aformentioned events kicking off, I make attempts to open a form like so:
DoCmd.OpenForm "00160_Clone_Service_Level_Contacts", acNormal, , , acFormAdd, , strArgs
As soon as I step through the DoCmd.OpenForm line, a message box pops up asking for the parameter value, shown previously: Service.[Service_ID].
So, its looking for Service_ID from the service table, but the form is unbound. So when does it check for this value? And how can I stop it from doing this
Parameter Queries in Crosstab Query
I created a parameter query, and then I created a crosstab query based on the first parameter query. I keep getting an error message that says: "The Microsoft Office Access database engine does not recognize '[start date]' as a valid field name or expression."
In more detail:
I created a query where I have a pop up parameter box that asks for the start date and another asking for the end date. The parameter is written in the criteria as follows:
Between [start date mm/dd/y] and [end date mm/dd/y]
When I run the query, the parameter query works beautifully.
So then, I ran a crosstab query based on the (first) parameter query hoping that it would pull the parameter query forward, but it didn't, I got the error message instead.
Displaying a message box when a form is blank
I have a parameter query that opens a report. I have a parameter query that opens a form. I am aware of the On No Data property available for providing a message box when a teacher enters a class into a parameter query and the report is empty.
Is there such a procedure for providing a message box when the teacher enters a class into a parameter query and the form is empty?
I would like to display a message box that informs the teacher that the class does not exist rather than load a blank form.
No data for result
I have two form base on query. where I one has a parameter another has two parameter
but if I set the code for two parameter values the mean second form it works but it gives another message that like form open action was canceled.
Parameter value from a Form into a Report
I have a form that open a report once I enter the parameter value for the query. Now I want include the parameter value into the report; but when I insert a textbox with=Report![Report_name]![Field_Name] the report start a loop, and give me an error.
How I can put the parameter value directly from the form, without dealing with the message box report asking me the parameter value again?
The result should display: "Old account with more than [Parameter_value(from the form, not the query)] days"
Note: The form closed once it display the report.
message box comes up twice when using parameter query
I have a parameter query which works fine. I have a form which shows the results which works fine.when I open the form the message box comes up and I type in what I want to see.this works fine! My problem is: I then create a list on the form to be able to show the results, and then select one of the results which is then opened in another form.This also works fine except once I create the list box, the message box which has the parameter comes up twice! If I then delete the list box off the form, the message box only comes up once.very odd! Any ideas why this happens and what I have to do to get rid of it?
Enter Parameter Value
I have a form that uses a value list as the row source for a combo box. This works fine. I then added this form as a sub form of another form. When I open the form I get an error message to "Enter Parameter Value". Why is this happening and what do I need to do to remove the error message?
Unwanted Parameter Dialogue Box
I've been having a hard time figuring out why my query always shows up a parameter dialogue box with this query design:
Build Date______ Weeks Left: DateDiff("w",Now(),[Build Date]) ______ Priority: IIf([Weeks Left]>7,"Low",IIf([Weeks Left]>3,"Medium","High"))
These are the different columns in my query design, and every time I run it, it always ask for a Weeks Left Parameter Value. Although if I just click OK on the box, the query will still show the correct output. The dialogue box just annoys me a lot though. I checked the spellings and they are all the same. Anyone can help me out
Help Suppressing Error Message
I currently have a database that is split (front end and back end). The backend is located on a network folder and the front end on the users desktop. I also have vb code written to disable behind the scenes access.
This all works fine to prevent unwanted backend access, but if the user doesn't have rights to the backend, an error message comes up that allows them to see the vb code by selecting debug.
How can I have this message not show up or at least not allow the debug option? I tried just placing docmd.setwarnings = false , but that just makes itautomatically go to the debug screen with no error message.
Parameter Query - No Null Record Msg
I've designed a form based on a parameter query that works nicely however I've discovered that if a user enters a response that is not contained in the control source, Access displays a blank datasheet instead of a Null message. How can I get Access to display something telling the user that the data they entered does not exist and returns them back to the parameter box?
Parameter Query with DSum
I have a query which calculates a groups % of the total. I am using a Dsum to calculate the % but when I introduce a date parameter I get the error message "The expression you entered as a query parameter produced this error: Access can't find the name 'Enter start date' you entered in the expression". The % column is null in the query results.
Without the parameter the dsum returns the correct value. Below is the sql :
MsgBox with Office Assistant
The Program uses the default Office Assistant Setting for Message Boxes. By adding a few Functions in a Global Module of your MS-Access Project helps to make use this feature, wherever you need them. Some of the very commonly used Functions are created separately for ease of use limiting the maximum Number of Parameters needed for the Functions to two and the 2nd Parameter for Title is Optional. First Parameter for Message Text and the second one for Title. Button Type and Icon Type is already added to the Function.
Hiding unwanted data
Is there a way of suppressing an unwanted data string in a label (or any other report)? One of the fields I use is Country, and many of my contacts are UK. Is there a way of printing the contents of the country field when it is not UK, but suppressing it when it is
Rogue Resource Parameter
I think this came about because a renamed a form in a windows application. Now whenever Itry to run the application I get the error message: -
Error 1 The item "obj\Release\DvdDatabase.frmDVD.resources" was specified more than once in the "Resources" parameter. Duplicate items are not supported by the "Resources" parameter. DvdDatabase
frmDvd is the one I renamed to frmMain.
Try as I might I cannot seem to find the "Resource" parameter mentioned in my IDE, VS Pro 2005,
Error 3061 Too Few Parameters Expecting 1
I think there is something I need to do with 'resolving' the parameter in my query, but I'm not sure how to apply the changes. I have what I think is 3 parts, a Function Module, a Query, a Button on a form, with VBA calling the function.
The query works fine when run via access queries. The problem starts with the use the criteria of adding a [enter parameter here] option to the Query Grid. When I run the query via the button on the form I get the message.
(if there is no parameter in the query it works, it's just when I have the parameter it fails.). Here is the SQL view of the query - I'm using [EnterRegion Here], for the Region ID:
Passing Parameters to a Query Without Parameter Prompts
I have a query that requires a parameter to work. I need to pass a form field (entered by the user) to the query as the parameter, but I don't want the parameter box to pop-up asking the user for input when the button is clicked to run the parameter.
I tried using DoCmd.RunSQL, but, if I understand correctly, this can't be used for a select statement. I used it with updating and inserting with no problems.
I'm trying to use qdf.Parameters() now, but I still get the popup. Is there a way to pass parameter without the parameter prompts?
Parameter not producing
I have this parameter
Between [Forms]![frmDATEPARAM]![STARTDATE] And [Forms]![frmDATEPARAM]![ENDDATE]
after the dates are entered into the parameter form and the run button is pressed, it pops up the parameter entry boxes.
Parameter query not working
Trying to avoid calling the query optimizer so many times in a VBA loop by using a parameter query. Tried two versions of a stored query: one with hard-wired criteria and one with parameters.
Double-clicking this query from the database window generates a message that 699 rows will be updated. I cancel the actualupdating, leaving the records unchanged.
parameter.add - How do you handle null or empty values?
Can you tell me how to handle processing when parameter.add adds a parameter in which the value is null or empty?
In my code I add this parameter:
I thought that String = Nothing gives them a default value.
As a quick fix so I can import the data I made sure if any parameter was null I would pass it a single space character but is that the best way to handle that scenario?
