Continuous Form with command buttons

Continuous Form with command buttons
Views: 98
I have a continuous form that I would like to have a command button in each row. The caption of each button should correspond to the values in a table (tblCallTypes). When you click on thebutton it is going to add a new record in (tblTally) with some information based on the user's log in.

I am having trouble creating these buttons the way I have described. I should be okay once I get the buttons captioned correctly.

Continuous Form Button

Continuous Form Button Icon
I have a button that I would like to pull up the current row's data in a separate tab control page.

I'm not sure why, but the command button is only enable on the first row of the continuous form and disabled on all other rows. I have another application that functions the same way and there are no issues with it, yet I cannot find any differences in the command buttons. In fact, I copied it from one form to the other.

Is this a common issue? How do I fix it?

Continuous Form Disable Command Button

Continuous Form Disable Command Button Icon
I have continuous form bound to a table called [INVOICE_APPROVER]. This form serves as a rough draft for recording data on invoices. Once data is completed and invoices have been approvedI have a button that appends the data to the final invoice table, where it is then deducted from the budget table and everything else.

This works great, however I need to put some control on the button so entries are not duplicated on multiple button presses.

Here is what I have tried so far:

I have the INVOICE_ENTRY command in the continuous for run the query and disable using this code:

Private Sub INVOICE_ENTRY_Click()
DoCmd.SetWarnings False
DoCmd.SetWarnings True
Me.INVOICE_ENTRY.Enabled = False
End Sub

This works, but since a continuous form it disables all the buttons. can't have that.

I then tried adding another step by having the INVOICE_ENTRY command open an unbound single form, setting default values to the original INVOICE_APPROVER form, and placing a ADD_ENTRY button in the Footer.

I used the same code as above adapted for this new form. This works as well, however when I close the form and click the INVOICE_ENTRY command on the continuous for the ADD_ENTRY command is no longer disabled.

and I know this is a lot of work for something that could just be bound to the original invoice table, however doing it this way is somewhat necessary.

Command Buttons in a Form

I am new to Access & trying to create a form/database, but the command buttons I added don't seem to work. I have ensured that Data Entry is checked off in properties, but suspect that there needs to be some sort of relationship established between the command buttons & the form/database.

VBA code for Command buttons on child form

VBA code for Command buttons on child form Icon
I am very new to Access 2003 and I've run into a problem with the command buttons on one of my forms. I have a main form that has a command button that opens up a second form, on the second form my Record Navigation 'go to previous record' and Record Navigation 'go to next record' buttons do not work, I receive the error: You can't go to the specified record.

However, when I open this second form up by itself these buttons function as they should.

@AccessMSSQL mentioned that when I open the second form through the command button, this may cause only one record to be displayed so I can't move to next or previous.

Generating graph from continuous form

Generating graph from continuous form Icon
I got a continuous form (referred as Form1) which has a dropdown and a few textboxes to generate a filter for the from. There are also two command buttons, one for filtering the data, one for generating a graph in Form2.

The problem is with generating the graph. I'd like to use the form's filter for bounding the graph's data. So records shown in Form1 must be used for the new graph (Graph1 in Form2). Isthere a way to copy the filter to the new form or use the data?

I know that this is explained quite weirdly, but I cannot think of another way at this moment.

Labeling command buttons

Labeling command buttons Icon
I am trying to apply the caption property to a series of command buttons each based upon a field that I get from a recordset generated from a query. So hypothetically my 30+ command buttons would have names like "EFF-01, EFF-02, EFF-03.

etc. sometimes. Button one would have the caption of EFF-01, button two would have the caption of EFF-02, . etc. The names would change per results from a query. All buttons would then have captions.

The form that I am trying to make is to simulate a touchscreen except for now with a mouse cursor. I am not able to assign a caption to my buttons. I have made my button names like cmd_Product_1, cmd_Product_2, etc.

In trying to reference my command buttons to assign the captions from my recordset info I made a string variable for cmd_Product_ and an integer variable to append to the end of the name. I believe the variable string name for my command buttons is working OK up until it comes time for me to assign the string to the control. I get a runtime error 91 "object variable notset".
