Wrap Text in VBA Code
Can you wrap text in a Combo Box ?
I am trying to find out if you can wrap text in a combo box? I have multiple selections that I am chosing to insert into my form but some of the verbage is cut off. Is there a way to wrap the text so that it shows all the information selected?
Word Wrap in Access VB (MSAccess 2007)
Is there a way to have a word wrap function in the Access VB window in Access 2007? When writing code quite often the code is much bigger than the window BUT if you hit enter to wrap the code manually the software takes it as a new instruction line. I have tried putting & before or after the new line but to no avail. It would be a lot simpler to follow the code if you didn't have to scroll across the window to keep reading it! I have looked at all the menu options and don't see one to accomplish this
Wrap Text on forms to prevent long fields to cut off
I have a form that returns some fields for me.
However, I have this format for the page that I like. but sometimes one or 2 of the fields are to long and get cut off. is there a way to Wrap Text on these forms. I want it all to still print on 1 page.
so not extend to the right. just wrap in the field I have. and then drop below if its too long.
On error go to advice needed
I am going to deploy my database soon and read somehwere about errors in the vba and that all code should have on error go to in the code. Do I need to wrap every sub routine in this.
How to wrap text in a pivot table?
I generate a pivot table from a simple table databse and one of the memo field contains a fair amount of text and when I try to print my pivot table, it prints over 2-3 pages. Is there a way to wrap text in an Access Pivot Table?
Combo box IF
I'm looking for a template for a VBA macro that looks at a combo box selection, checks the value, and references a table to populate a text box (on same form as combo box) based on the input.
For now I'm just trying to wrap my head around something simple. Learning VBA though VBA Express at the moment.
Record Navigation Buttons
I seem to recall code that allows Next and Previous buttons to wrap around the "top" and "bottom" of a record set. So that if you are at the first record, Previous will wrap to the last record and if you are at the last record Next will wrap to the first one.
I have tried the usual suspects - including Allen Browne, Steven Lebans and Martin Greene as well as this site and a few others. I just can't seem to locate it.
Setting multi-line text field to have both scroll bars and no line wrap, how?
Access 2007 on Windows XP
I am not seeing a property setting to enable a horizontal scroll bar for a text field.
And also I need to disable the control from doing line wrap.
Basically I want Access to display the text as-is and do no reformatting.
I have set my font to a mono-space font, so that point is successfully covered
Wrap text in datasheet on subform
I have a subform appearing on a report (should I be using a subform or subreport? I've tried both and don't really see the difference)
Anyway, the subform is in datasheet view. Is there a way to wrap the text so that it all displays in the report?
I'm getting the impression that it can only be done if I set the view to continous form and format it to look like a datasheet
Access VBA Print Records to Text File
I am currently using the following statement from within Access VBA to print records to a file:
Print #FF, DLookup("[Column1]", "Some Table")
This part has worked. For the next step I would like to print the next records in the table, starting with the first record and ending with the last. How is this done? How do I tell Access through VBA that I want the next record? Once I understand this, I could then wrap a loop around it and extract the remaining records.
NOTE: I can not use the ".DoCmd.TransferText" because I need to add a header and trailer to this file
Huge array makes VBA execute slowly
I have some VBA code running in a macro which populates an array with rows from a text file. The array resizes dynamically using 'redim'.
The code runs fine until I attempt to load a large text file: c. 300,000 rows. The array itself builds absolutely fine (and surprisingly quickly) but from then on, all VBA code runs painfully slowly. Even stepping over a simple "x=x+1" line takes long enough for me to see "Running." in the title bar of the window.
If I destroy this array, the VBA code runs normally again.
How to populate a form control from VBA?
I want to have the count of a tables records to populate a form text box control - unbound - by using vba in the On Current event of the Tabbed Form.
Here is my Sql - I used Allen Browne's SQL to VBA form to convert the code.
thread ratings form here 8
Here is the full code.
Am I at all on the right track?
CountOfMembersAll is the text box control on the form.

Selecting a corresponding table field based on text field.
For some reason cant quite wrap my brain around what should be a relatively simple problem.
User enters their login name in a field on a form. The form name is Login and the field is Text1. User clicks on a button, called Command1. Based on Text1, the form looks at the matching Associate field (ie, user enters michael and the record where Associate field is michael is selected) and its corresponding Pref1 field both which are in Table2. The Pref1 field holds a variable that determines which form opens up.
I presume the above is done with VBA for the Onclick event for Command1. What would the code look like? I realize a combo box would be easier than a text field but Im trying to make the db a little more secure by not displaying everyones login name
Changing Existing VBA Code to an event procedure
I have recently inherited a DB that I need to make some changes to. There is a button on an unbound form that when clicked, launches some VBA code below ( I have only included the code I amhaving trouble with and not the entire copy of code):
The text denoted in green I have added to add the CRD No. field to the table that is generated from this procedure - it is an unbound checkbox on the unbound form. However, I think I have missed something, because I get an error when I try to run the process.
edit control source in VBA error "The Text Is Too Long to Be Edited"
I am new to MS Access, I have only elementary knowledge. I have downloaded a template from Microsoft about inventory:
I would like to use this, however for some reasons beyond my knowledge I cannot change the number of characters in for item box.
It is text, which means in theory I could type an item up to 255 characters, however I cannot type more than 50.
As soon as I type something longer or paste I get the error msg "The Text Is Too Long to Be Edited"
I cannot wrap my head around this due to my limited knowledge of programming in MS Access
Importing Data into Microsoft Access using VBA
You might be wondering why you would want to use VBA code to import data while you have so many other options available when doing it the visual way. Well, there are two main reasons:
Importing data through VBA code enables you to work with a variety of formats that is not available when you do it using the visual interface such as delimited text in a text file or data in a word table.
On a more practical level, if you need to make the same import every time, then simply creating a function to do the job for you will make the process faster and easier as opposed to going through the import wizard every time.
automatically export each record to separate text/html files with VBA
I searched but I could not find any code for exporting each record of an access query to a separate text file using a VBA module as suggested in this Microsoft article Outputting one HTML file per record in an Access database at http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/ac.345961033.aspx
I managed to adopt the first method (Use a report to output one HTML file per record) but it is not possible to specify a custom name for the exported files.
The second method (Use the VBA PRINT statement to output one HTML file per record) is much more powerful but I could not find any pre-made code example around.
My MS Query is very simple and has just 2 fields (ID, UniversityName). I would like the ID to be the name of the exported html/text files and the UniversityName the content of the exported html/text files. Obiously I would like to generate automatically one separate html/text file for each record.
Is there any pre-made VBA script that can help me achieve this? my knowledge of VBA is very limited
Cannot open VBA code
A few days ago my database suddenly started pumping out this error message:
"The database cannot be opened because the VBA project contained in it cannot be read. The database can be opened only if the VBA project is first deleted. Deleting the VBA project removes all code form modules, forms and reports. You should back up your database before attempting to open the database and delete the VBA project."
This message appears every time a form with VBA code is opened, and every time I try to open the VBA editor. Of course I have a backup, however I rather not be forced to redo about 6 hours of work.
Looking across the internet it seams like quite a few people have had this problem, but no solutions. As far is I can tell, something in the VBA code has caused the database to become corrupted.
So my question is this, is there any way I could possibly recover at least some of the code? Could I somehow force Access to show me the code, even if a part of it is corrupt?
Update table via VBA code
Have a table (several hundred entries) which must be updated weekly using VBA code. I know how to write the actual VBA code (for each record) but I do not know how/where/what is necessary to open the table, read each record seq and update based on VBA code (function call return value) and to finally close table.
Corrupt VBA code
I am using Access 2007. When I try to open my accdb I get a "The database cannot be opened because the VBA project contained cannot be read. The database can be opened only if the VBA project is first deleted.
Deleting the VBA project removes code from modules, forms and reports. You should back up your database before attempting to open the database and delete theVBA project." message.
- I can't use the backup feature (I get the same error message)
- I can't compact and repair (I get the same error message)
- I can't move the forms into a new db (I get the same error message)
- I can't decompile (I get the same error message)
- when I save the forms as text - I get empty text files
- I can't open vba window (I get the same error message)
