VBA code to search form field properties
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.
Code to change form properties
I am learning vba and have some code to change to change the allow additions / allow deletions properties on a form, but can't get it to change the properties on the form (which I have set to no for both on the form - hoping to get them to change to yes, so I can then change other properties with code).
Private Sub Form_Load()
strFormAdd = Me.AllowAdditions
strFormDel = Me.AllowDeletions
I have tried it in a few other form_ places but it still doesn't work. Please can somebody give me the right code to make this work and area to put it
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
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.
Building Dynamic Queries
I was able to design my first Access 2007 database with a form and add button. I am able to fill out the form and clicke the add button and it writes the data to the table.
Now I want to be able to retrieve the data I just entered by using three possible selection criteria: data from, city, and customer id. One must be entered for the search, but any combination can be use.
I designed another form with a search button. The format of the three selection criteria fields are textbox and combo boxes.
Do I go to the properties of the search button and add vba code for it, through the event on click procedure,
I am somewhat familiar with programming languages like Coldfusion and SQL, but I am not sure how to dynamically plug in the form value into the SQL search criteria.
Is it like Excel VBA, something like.Where tblName.City = form.frmName.city.value, or something like that ?
program find button to search whole table
Is there away that I can use VBA code to tell the Find Button on my form to search the whole table rather than having to select the individual field I would like to search?
If I wanted to search for an employee but their name does not exist (typo, etc.), yet I have their ID number. I can just enter their ID number and not have to change the search to now look in the ID field of the table. I can just type the Id number and the whole table will be searched for that number

Search Form VBA
I am creating a Search Form and when I am testing it out, this error code keeps coming up (see Capture). Also attached is the code that I have in there as well (see Capture1).
Calling a form that is not open from VBA in Access 2000
I'm trying to call a form and get/set properties from VBA code in Access 2000. The code runs fine when the form is open, but when the form is not open in the db, I get the following error:
"Microsoft Office Access can't find the form 'ContactForm' referred to in a macro expression or Visual Basic code."
'ContactForm' is the name of the form I'm trying to get/set the properties on.
Here's the code I'm running:
Learning objectives: How do I run VBA code using a macro? How do I use the value in one field to automatically suggest a value for a different field? How do I change the table or query a form is bound to once the form is already created? What is the After Update event? How is it used? How do I provide a search capability for my forms? How do I create an unbound combo box? Can I implement the search capability using Visual Basic? (pdf file, install Acrobat Reader to read this tutorial.)
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
Pop-Up Form Question
I have created a form for my HR department. Sometimes the user will be updating a current employee and sometimes they will be entering in a new employee.
I would like to create a pop-up form to ask the user if they are updating information or entering a new employee. Then based on the answer - either a blank form opens for a search or a blank form opens for a new employee entry.
I have tried making the data entry = Yes in the Properties of the form but that seems to only allow new employee entry - not a current employee search.
I don't know how to write Macros/Expressions/VBA code so details would be really appreciated

VBA code for searching for a keyword and re-directing to the specific page?
Have a form with a search function. Each field of the record returned from the search (using keyword) will be displayed, including an attachment field (hyperlink data type).
I want it to work in a way that every time a user double-click on the hyperlink to open the attachment, the same search keyword used above will be used to search inside theattachment, and point directly to that specific page containing the keyword instead of the first page as usual.
I have been able to store and open the attachment so I need help with the searching and page-pointing part.
I need help or an example for vba code/macro where my search button in my search form helps me to open up my split form and helps me filter out certain condition I set.
In my case,
If I select a certain type of aircraft(combo box) and select my check box, service bulletins, the vba code helps me not only to open up the split form that I have created but helps me to filter out those where there are service bulletins attached.
Or if I select my check box, manuals, the vba code helps me to open up the split form where there are manuals attached to the type of aircraft.
Because for certain type of aircraft there might only be manuals attached to it and not service bulletins and vice versa, therefore I am requested to create this function.
My search form includes other criteria too but the check box where there is an attachment is giving me trouble.
One search box, two fields
Is there a quick way to have a search value (Like [Forms]![Report Form]![UICodeTextBox]) look for a match in two fields (Code A, Code B)?
I've tried using the Or criteria option, but as I have many searches on the form, which only lookup one field, it seems to dramatically slow down the query to copy them all down for one Or criteria.
I'm thinking it must be possible to combine the fields at Field or Select in SQL for the purposes of a search, but my lack of experience has defeated me
vba code to search for a specific record on a form?
Is there part of my code I can change to search for a specific record on my form? At the moment when the user enters the a number it takes through a series of next steps; I would prefer if the user just enters in the ID number and it automatically displays the record rather than going through several steps to get to that record. VBA Code:
Search Form using Vb
I have a database with a search form created using Vb code.query name is (qrySearch) and the form name is (frmSearch) search works fine except for OrderDate field which I want to give it 2dates and query returns data between those 2 dates.
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:
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 Criteria - not working ?
I am using a form with 10 fields used as a search form. The idea is for the user to enter data into any or of the 10 fields to search the database. If they leave the field blank, the search should not limit the returned data based on that blank field.
I am using a form to pass the search parameters to a query. The criteria line in the code has a statement like the following:
This allows the user to enter a wildcard search for partial entries which is very helpful.
This all works properly.EXCEPT when any of the search fields have no data in the database. For instance, if one of the 10 fields is missing data in the database (that field is null), then that record is overlooked for some reason.
