Forms and SubForms
I have a Form that is a list of dates, and a subForm that is all the projects worked on for a given date, with the hours for each.
I would like to have a field on my main form that is the total hours on a given date, and I would like this field updated whenever the hours for a project on that date is updated. I have tried some VBA code in the "After Update" box on the subForm, but that does not seam to be working.
Thank you for taking the time to report an issue.
What's wrong... Please write below.
I have unbound forms name: Project_List, in it there is two subforms bound in a query. Is there a way to link the two subforms, so that when I click a record on the first subforms. it filters a related records.
Let's say in field name: Doc_Name when I click a record from this field, access will filter related date in the 2nd subforms.
We use subforms in Access a lot around here. Sometimes, we may have upwards of 5 or 6 subforms per form. Adding that many can be a real drag on performance if you’re not careful. This is part one of two posts on the topic. Ben will talk about disabling the loading of subforms on startup in our next post.
I have a set of tables that are accessed by forms and subforms. A couple of the subforms seem to update ALL of the records in the relevant table when data is entered, while other subforms correctly update only the viewed record
Ideas on where to start debugging this would be greatly appreciated!
Databases are made of various objects and it is not unusual for one of these objects to contain various fields. If you try to create a form for such an object, you may encounter a space problem. Even if you decide to reduce the amount of information on a table, because you still need to follow your customer's goal, you may not have this complete liberty. Therefore, instead of deleting necessary fields, you can use one of the various alternatives offered by Microsoft Access.

I am having trouble with subforms constantly refreshing. I am building a form with a timesheet (first subform) and a sortable project list (second subform); each of the subforms is a continuous by default. However when both of these forms are on the form they start constantly refreshing. I commented out all the code on both subforms and the main form but it still does this. There are no macros either.
Does anyone know how I could fix this? As I said this doesn't seem to happen when only one of the subforms exists on the form, but I really need both to make this at all user friendly.
Edit: Forgot to specify this is in Access
I have a form with lots of subforms and sub-subforms. Is there an event that fires when I move from one subform to another

I'm working on creating a database, and I've already set up the tables and relations. Right now, I'm stuck on the forms. My idea of forms is just forms with subforms, so you can update allthe related data in the same form.
But now that I'm designing the forms, I find that my forms are very cramped, or that I have a lot of subforms. what is important when designing forms? how do you knowwhen to put a subform and when not to put a subform? If you say related data, but the whole database itself is related isn't it?
I'm still lurking and trying to do bits on my db when I can. Weather is getting a bit rubbish now so will probably be doing more on the PC.
Would someone be kind enough to point me in the direction of a good tut on subforms and tabbed forms?
I want multiple tabbed forms, I'm guessing I have to put them in as subforms? Before I start doing that can anyone tell me if there any drawbacks/limitations to using them this way?
