Multiple fields set to visible or invisible based on field content

Multiple fields set to visible or invisible based on field content
Views: 101
I got lots and lots of fields need to be set to visible or invisible based on field content. Manually coding of this is possible it just takes forever. This is what I am wondering (ifthis is possible or exists or not):

If I had say 10 fields all all those 10 fields were to be set to invisible or visible depending on a single check mark box, could I say 'draw' something maybe a special 'frame' around those10 fields so that I can refer to the 'frame' and everything in that area could be invisible or visible based upon the check mark box versus having to code 10 fields individually?

Setting fields visible/invisible

Setting fields visible/invisible Icon
I have created a form that contains a combo box with 4 choices. I also have 3 fields which I have set to be invisible. What I want to be able to do is depending on the choice made in the combo box determines which field becomes visible.

I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. I'm pretty new to VBA but am quite good with macros and still can't make it work. I have tried setting my field [via] event as got focus, lost focus and change. I can get it to work if I choose the first choice the relevant field becomes visible but if I choose anything else the relevant fields do not become visible and the first field won't go invisible.
 

How to change the height of the 'detail' part of a form?

How to change the height of the 'detail' part of a form? Icon
I know how to set this Property, but what I'm really asking is how I can set it to something smaller than it wants to be.

On a continuous subform, I have a set of fields (all at the bottom of the Detail section) that normally I want to be invisible. On the click of a button, I want to set all their Visible properties to True.

So when the fields are invisible, I'd like to set the height of the Detail section to exclude the "real estate" reserved for the invisible fields, and then, on the click of the button,reset the height at the same time that I set the visibility properties.

I have a question about conditional formating of fields.
I have a form with 18 fields which must be visible or invisible depending on the value of a combobox "code"

Lets say
record 1 code A1-3 Visible 1,2,3,4,5,6 hide the rest
record 2 code A1-1 visible 1,2,8,9 hide the rest
recode 3 code A2-10 visible 5,6,7,8,9 hide the rest

Invisible LookUp Data List

Invisible LookUp Data List Icon
I have created a simple table, two fields, an Autonumber Primary Key, Field Name - lngBureauID and a Text Field, strBureauName. In a few other tables I have called this table data using the LookUp Data Type. No big deal! However, when I drop down the list of Bureaus the Bureau Name is invisible. If you select something from the list the data is then visible in the table however you don't ever know wht you are selecting because you can't see it. When I make the Primary Key visible, it is visible but the text string field is not. What would cause a fields data to be invisible? I hope you can help me because I can't ask users to select data from a list when they can't see the data. I have looked everywhere for a format or system property that may be causing this issue, I am stumped. I have even created the table again, and ended up with the same problem. I have even created a new database and table and ended up with the same problem

Hide textboxes only on new record.

Hide textboxes only on new record. Icon
I'm trying to hide textboxes but only on the New Record that the form loads up on. i.e. when I go back to a previous record using the navigation buttons on the form footer the boxes should be set to visible. Below is what Ive tried but is not working, it keeps the boxes invisible all the time.

Set boxes invisible on load

Private Sub Form_Load()
'Open the form at a new Record.
DoCmd.GoToRecord , , acNewRec
'Set Later steps to invisible on load
If Me.NewRecord = True Then
Text20.Visible = False
Text67.Visible = False
Text71.Visible = False
Command1.Visible = False
Command105.Visible = False
End If End Sub

Navigate to another set to visible

Private Sub Form_GotFocus()
If Me.NewRecord = False Then
Text20.Visible = True
Text67.Visible = True
Text71.Visible = True
Command1.Visible = True
Command105.Visible = True
End If End Sub

I'm sure this can't be as difficult as Im making

Exporting invisible fields on a form to Excel

Exporting invisible fields on a form to Excel Icon
I'm using Access 2010 and I have a form that will be used to select or filter records which will then be exported to Excel. However, I only want to show the critical fields that will be used to make the decision on which records to export on the form but export a far larger set of fields.

The data set of the form is actually a query that contains all the fields required for the export.

If I place all the fields on the (continuous) form but make the ones the user doesn't need to see invisible they are not exported using the standard external data->export/Excel. I can think of a couple of ways round this like making all the fields visible but transparent/white font etc or placing a button on the form and generating the export by dynamically creatinga query based on any filtering the user may have chosen.

However, I was wondering if there is a tidier way to achieve the export of the required fields?
 

Making text field visable/invisable on a check box

Making text field visable/invisable on a check box Icon
I want to make a field invisible if a check box is ticked, but return it to being visible if the check box becomes unticked. I can easily make it invisible, but I am struggling with the return process.

to turn invisible use coding:
Me.Home_Goals.Visible = Nz(Me.Home_Walkover, "") = "Inactive
