Add a Subform in Access 2007

Add a Subform in Access 2007
Views: 1337
The main form in Access 2007 may have another form inserted into it called a subform. The combination of form and subform may be called a hierarchical form, master/detail form or parent/child form. Subforms are most commonly used to show data with a one-to-many relationship. The following steps will show how to add a subform in Access 2007.

Subform goes out of touch when its table is edited?

Subform goes out of touch when its table is edited? Icon
I have an Access 2007 subform linked to the mainfor, and they were both working fine. it linked on the proper parent/child link, edits on the subform tracked the proper parent record, etc. etc.

Then I edited the table bound to the subform simply to make one of its text fields longer; that's all!

Now, data from the subform table does not show up in the subform at all.

I can still add a new record via the subform, but I will only be able to see it briefly (while initially entering it). if I go to a different mainform record and then return to the one that should have the new subtable record, again, it doesn't show.

However, looking directly at the table for the subform shows that the new record (and the old ones) are indeed still allproperly there in their table.

Restricting SubForm to One Record Entry Per Parent: Access 2007

I have a one-to-one relationship between two table. I have successfully added the subform, but I get the option to add additional child records in the Datasheet View. This means that when a user tabs to the next row and enters data they get an error--and they should.

Question: How do I restrict the subform to show only one row in Datasheet View?

Access Runtime 2007 Com Add-In

Access Runtime 2007 Com Add-In Icon
I currently have a Dell Precision T3500, with Windows 7, Office 2010 Professional. On my computer I have Adobe Standard 9. With Adobe Standard 9 it has a Com Add-in for Microsoft Office PDFMaker.

One of the applications our business uses, is tied to Access Runtime 2007.

In the Application when you go to view a report it doesn't load correctly. I have isolated it to the Com Add-in. All of our computers running Office 2007 Professional, I loaded the Microsoft Office Access 2007 and turned the Com Add-in to inactive. This fixed all those computers.

However, on my own computer with the above stated software. I turned the Add-in to inactive in office 2010 and the Com Add-in still loads in Access 2007 Runtime when I load it.

So my question is how do you Inactive/Disable a Com Add-in in Access 2007 with only Runtime installed?

I have an Access 2007 single form with subform. The subform has a hidden textbox that sums a record in the subform and displays in a textbox on the form. The form textbox is blank, but becomes visible if I click on the taskbar or open another app. If I update the subform or move to another record, I loose it again. I've tried requery and recalc on practually every event of the form, subform and both textboxes to no avail. What will make this textbox stay visible?

Access 2007 - only starts in safe mode

Access 2007 - only starts in safe mode Icon
Access 2007 will no longer start unless in safe mode, and I have uninstalled, reinstalled, used the MSFT Office 2007 removal tool, removed add-ins, went into registry and manually removed everything relating to Office 2007, and still, no matter what, Access 2007 crashes unless using Safe Mode.

There are NO add-ins when I open it in Safe mode, nothing. I've spent over 5 hours trying to get it to work, and after all these years of working in MS Access with only a few hiccups...

We have Access 2007 on an office PC. We have a Sales Database, that all of our salesman used to access on this computer. They all had Access 2000. We all got Office 2007 (WITHOUT ACCESS).Do I have to purchase Access on the other computers to be able to access this data, or is there a way to add and/or access this database? Maybe even by internet access?

Keep in mind I am the IT department, I am very, very green when it comes to this stuff, just lay it on me easy.

Creating Managed Add-ins for Access 2007

Creating Managed Add-ins for Access 2007 Icon
Learn how you can extend Access 2007 by creating and incorporating managed add-ins into your applications. This article demonstrates how to create a simple add-in that consumes data returned from a Web service, by using the Visual Studio Shared Add-in template.
You can use Access 2007 support for managed add-ins to create cross-application tools, as many software vendors will. But, that is not the most likely scenario: Most likely, you will use add-ins to supplement your VBA code, and to gain access to the rich .NET Framework environment. If there are tasks you want to accomplish that are easier in managed code, Access support for managed add-ins is a perfect solution: You get the unmatched Access form and report designers, and the power of Visual Studio and the .NET Framework when writing code. You can extend Access 2007 in ways that were previously difficult (if not impossible) by creating and incorporating managed add-ins into your applications.

Subforms and refreshing data in other subforms from ANOTHER subform....

Subforms and refreshing data in other subforms from ANOTHER subform.... Icon
I have a form with 3 subforms. Subform 1 is for adding records. Subforms 2 and 3 are for editing/viewing records. Since 2 and 3 are essentially identical, we will focus only on subforms 1 & 2 for solutions.

What I want to do is add a record in subform 1, and then be able to immediately view that record in subform 2. However, whenever I add a record in subform 1, I do not see it when I click over to subform 2.

Subform Help

I am new to access and have been tasked with working on a new database. The database is for case management and I am trying to build a new case form. I created a navigation form with a totalof four left buttons; "case information,"

I would like a different subform inside the navigation window when a button is click, basically embed the respective subform. For example, the subform to contain the when and what part and the complete to have a button to submit or add additional subjects.

When I right click the subform area and select "build" I am able to add a subform. However, after doing so it disappears as soon as I change from design view.

Add Subform to Report

Add Subform to Report Icon
I'm trying to add a subform to a report. I know how to use the subform/subreport control, but it pulls up the subreport wizard when I really want to add a subform. Is it possible to add asubform as opposed to a subreport into a report?
