Requery a comboBox
(ie a Name Combobox from table with hundreds of names the drop down list changing with every text character entered)
way I figure should be possible with a requery on update for field with a criterea of [Name]=[Name] but with a partial selection like a column selection works
Thank you for taking the time to report an issue.
What's wrong... Please write below.
In form2, I enter opportunity name in a text box and country selected in a combobox dropdown.
The country selected in the combobox of form2 is used to determine the record in form1 unbound combobox
I have a form with a single combobox "Contact_Type" that is populated form a contact type table. The form also has a subform "Clients_Subform" that is to list all the clients with a particular contact type. Now my combobox defaults to the first contact type and the subform lists those clients.
One: When I default the combo box to the second contact type the subform list still gets populated with the clients from the first contact type.
Two:When I select a new contact type from the combobox nothing gets updated. For this I have tried new events in the afterupdate
Nothing seems to work!
Form A is a waiting list of people who want to attend one of our several courses.
Form B is a bookings form where the operator selects a course from a list, a person's name from a combobox then clicks a button to make the booking.
I'm trying to make things easier for the operators by allowing them to highlight the entry for person X in form A, then click a button on form A that opens form B and writes SQL code (whichcontains a where statement that identifies the ID number of person X) to the recordsource property of the combobox.
The code then requeries the combobox to populate the rest of the columns and other controls on form B.
The problem is the combobox on form B doesn't seem to requery. I'm writing to the bound column but after .requery the columns contain nulls, but if I click the combo box it drops down toshows only one person correctly identified by the ID value I've written to it.
I can write values to text boxes on form B easily from one form to another, but the combobox has 16 columns (don't ask) so I don't want to go down the route of adding many extra hidden text boxes to form B.
Forms!bookcourses!cmbFindDelegate.RowSource = strSQL1 & strSQL2
My issue is when a run a requery command from a button, field, or whereever, sometimes all the names doesn't come up in the combobox as they should. I hit requery again, and they populate.
Even if I change the combo box to a text box, samething happens. Its not all names though. I can click the combo and 3 names are available. I hit requery and then all 6 names will show up.
I might hit requery again and nothing will happen, then again and 3 names drop off the list.
How do I get multiple fields to come out in the second combobox? Is there a way to add multiple fields to RowSource or do I need to do this differently?
Forms!frmMainNavigation!NavigationSubForm!Form!Sub formSubTeam.Form!cmboSubTeamSF.Requery but this doesn't requery and the combobox is blank. Can anyone point me in the right direction please
I am having some issues with requerying a combobox on a form. I have two tables, tblPatient with pkUMRN (not autonumber, a 8 digit alphanumeric code) and tblAdmission with pkAdmissionID andfkUMRNAdmission (linked to tblPatient_UMRN).
The control on the form (frmMaster) is combobox tblAdmission_UMRNAdmission, and entering a known UMRN code autopopulates the form with data from tblPatient. Entering an unknown UMRN in to the tblAdmission_UMRN combobox starts a Not In List event macro that opens a form (frmNewPatient) for UMRN/tblPatient data entry as new record.
My problems are:
- I get the error notification "the text you entered isn't an item in the list" as the frmNewPatient pops up. How do I disable this error message?
- The frmNewPatient opens a new record. Is it possible to copy across the UMRN entered in the frmMaster combobox tblAdmission_UMRNAdmission (ie the the unknown UMRN that initiated the NotIn List macro) in to the tblPatients_UMRN control in the frmNewPatients? Or does it have to be re-entered manually?
- After I enter the tblPatients data via the frmNewPatient, save and close, the tblPatient updates but the combobox tblAdmission_UMRNAdmission doesn't update unless the frmMaster is closed and reopened.
I have tried running requery macros linked to Event On Got Focus for frmMaster and Event After Update on the combobox. I have tried these requery macros both with and withoutUMRNAmission set as the control.
To do this, do I need to enter a VBA code into the 'after update' property of the combobox, which requery's the subform, and adds a new 'year' clause to the year column of the underlying query?
The query that feeds the form references the combo as criteria against the employeeID.
=[ME].[cboEmployee] Or Is Null
The onchange event of the combo asks for a requery of the form
Private Sub cboEmployee_Change()
Debug.Print "it fired"
The event fires but the form does not requery.
