Resetting a form having "Required" fields
I have a form which has 4 fields set as "Required". When I try to dirty the form and then try to reset it using a button, it does clear all the fields, but when I try to close the form, it gives me the error that the "xyz" field is required. I want to keep those fields set as required, but yet would like to have a reset button that can clear the fields for the user if they have made a mistake during data entry.

Second problem is that on the same form, I have a subform. The Reset button is in the header section of the main form. By clicking this button, I would also like the subform to be reset. The reset button includes code for the subform to reset, but it also has the same problem error. There are required fields on it. How can I reset a form and provide the primary key fields and the required key fields Null values when they can't have Null values

Creating reset button to clear text box in search form

Search field will not clear
I have a form with several unbound search fields and code that I got from a gracious helper that creates SQL search phrase from those unbound fields. The filterOn works when I click the cmd_Search and I get exactly what I want as a search result. BUT when I place a cmd_Clear_Search_Terms and click to blank out the 3 search fields it does not work. Some fix I tried blanked out the fields but if I re-click on the cmd_Search btn then the query brings up whatever the last search brought up. The first time that I click on cmd_Search with no terms in the unbound boxes I have a msgbox that popsup a "no criteria" message just like it should. Why do you think that by trying to clear out the terms that I get the same results.

It's like whatever I do I can't get the search fields to blank out and the cmd_Search btn to reset, but get the earlier search term results.

Any one have any time to drop a hint to a struggling amateur

Use a command button to start an action or a series of actions
You use a command button on a form to start an action or a set of actions. For example, you can create a command button that opens another form. To make a command button perform an action, you write a macro or event procedure and attach it to the command button's On Click property. You can also embed a macro directly into the On Click property of the command button. This makes it possible to copy the button to other forms without losing the functionality of the button.
What do you want to do?
* Add a command button to a form by using a wizard
* Create a command button by dragging a macro to a form
* Create a command button without using a wizard
* Customize a command button


Clear selected value in combo box
I have a combo box on a form. The user selects a value then presses a command button and opens a form. When the user closes the form returning to the 1st form again, I'd like the combo box to be clear again.
I've tried putting me.combobox=null in just about every event the main form has but nothing works. Is there a way to clear this without putting me.combobox=null in the On Click event of the command button? I have quite a few command buttons on that form and don't want to have to put the code in of them if I don't have to.

Clear records off of continuous form
Im trying to find a command to clear all the records on a continuous form that were called up using a strWhere Filter and combo boxes.

There are four unbound combo-boxes in the header that the user can choose from and then I have a command button coded to filter (Me.FilterOn) for those criteria.
The matching records display in the details section of the form (continuous-style).

Is there a command to reset the details section of the form to be blank? Ive tried refresh, requery, repaint, etc. All of these leave the previously queried data. Removing the filter doesnt work because that display all the records. I basically want the form to look exactly the way it did when it was first opened.


Preview Report Command That Can Do More
Access 2010 - I have a search form where end users enter parameters. I used the command wizard and created a preview report command button so the report tab comes up in preview mode just fine.

I also created a Clear Entry command button that works. However if I leave the report open in preview mode and go back to the form tab, hit the Clear Entry button, then enter new parameters, the report data doesn't change from the previous entry.

1. Will the end user have to close the report manually each time before entering new parameters?

2. If not, where is the Close Report command button? I could only find Close Form.

3. What's the code to create a command button to refresh the report?

4. Finally, can everything (preview report, clear entry, refresh data) be done using just 1 command button? Can't I add the code I need behind one command?


Controlling another switchboard
We have a training database that opens to a main switchboard. I click on the option "Search Forms", which opens a second switchboard. From there, I click "Search by Name", which opens a form with a text box for "First Name", and another for "Last Name". Once the names are entered, you click a command button on the same form to "Run the Query". This opens a pop-up form saying "search complete", and continue. You can then click the "View Report" command button on the original form to get to the report.

The database I am working on has a form with "First Name" & "Last Name" fields (already filled in), and a command button that opens to the main switchboard of this training database. Can I add something to my command button so it automatically selects the above mentioned switchboard options and enters the names from my form? Maybe a macro that somehow does all of these steps?

I would ultimately like the user of my database to click the command button on my form one time to get directly to the report of the other database automatically using the names from my form.
