VBA code to search form field properties

VBA code to search form field properties
Views: 15
Not the database but the field properties on the form. I previously had some code to do this (search forms) but I don't know where it is .


I want to search all forms in the database for a Text Box field that is a date and change the Property Sheet Show Date Picker field from For dates to Never.

VBA code for my unbound Search form.

VBA code for my unbound Search form. Icon
I have a search form, which is now unbound from my table, and by that I mean I have gone and set the form's Record Source to remain blank. I have also gone and set the Control Source ofeach text box and combo box to also remain blank.

I did this because when I would search for a record by a particular field, by Document Number for example, the data I typed into the text box, or selected in the combo box, would then bestored as a new record in my table, which I did not want.

So, by doing this my Search button no longer works.

Now, do I need to write a VBA code consisting of information that will let me search by each field? For instance, in my code do I need to include information that will let me search by theDocument Number, and/or File Type, and/or Revision, and/or Project, and/or Manufacturer, and so forth?

I have been searching all day for example VBA codes for searching, but have not been successful.

Code to change form properties

Code to change form properties Icon
I am learning vba and have some code to change to change the allow additions / allow deletions properties on a form, but can't get it to change the properties on the form (which I have set to no for both on the form - hoping to get them to change to yes, so I can then change other properties with code).

Private Sub Form_Load()

strFormAdd = Me.AllowAdditions
strFormDel = Me.AllowDeletions

End Sub

I have tried it in a few other form_ places but it still doesn't work. Please can somebody give me the right code to make this work and area to put it

VBA search code

Having a little trouble with some VBA code designed to grab a number from a form (MRN) then use this data to find the corresponding data in a table making a small change to that record (changing a checkbox to true).

The table opens but only the first record is updated. The code works well as a standard VBA search code on another form.

Building Dynamic Queries

Building Dynamic Queries Icon
I was able to design my first Access 2007 database with a form and add button. I am able to fill out the form and clicke the add button and it writes the data to the table.

Now I want to be able to retrieve the data I just entered by using three possible selection criteria: data from, city, and customer id. One must be entered for the search, but any combination can be use.

I designed another form with a search button. The format of the three selection criteria fields are textbox and combo boxes.

Do I go to the properties of the search button and add vba code for it, through the event on click procedure,

I am somewhat familiar with programming languages like Coldfusion and SQL, but I am not sure how to dynamically plug in the form value into the SQL search criteria.

Is it like Excel VBA, something like.Where tblName.City =, or something like that ?

program find button to search whole table

program find button to search whole table Icon
Is there away that I can use VBA code to tell the Find Button on my form to search the whole table rather than having to select the individual field I would like to search?


If I wanted to search for an employee but their name does not exist (typo, etc.), yet I have their ID number. I can just enter their ID number and not have to change the search to now look in the ID field of the table. I can just type the Id number and the whole table will be searched for that number

Calling a form that is not open from VBA in Access 2000

Calling a form that is not open from VBA in Access 2000 Icon
I'm trying to call a form and get/set properties from VBA code in Access 2000. The code runs fine when the form is open, but when the form is not open in the db, I get the following error:

"Microsoft Office Access can't find the form 'ContactForm' referred to in a macro expression or Visual Basic code."

'ContactForm' is the name of the form I'm trying to get/set the properties on.

Here's the code I'm running:

I am creating a Search Form and when I am testing it out, this error code keeps coming up (see Capture). Also attached is the code that I have in there as well (see Capture1).

Learning objectives: How do I run VBA code using a macro? How do I use the value in one field to automatically suggest a value for a different field? How do I change the table or query a form is bound to once the form is already created? What is the After Update event? How is it used? How do I provide a search capability for my forms? How do I create an unbound combo box? Can I implement the search capability using Visual Basic? (pdf file, install Acrobat Reader to read this tutorial.)

VBA code/Macro

VBA code/Macro Icon
I need help or an example for vba code/macro where my search button in my search form helps me to open up my split form and helps me filter out certain condition I set.

In my case,

If I select a certain type of aircraft(combo box) and select my check box, service bulletins, the vba code helps me not only to open up the split form that I have created but helps me to filter out those where there are service bulletins attached.

Or if I select my check box, manuals, the vba code helps me to open up the split form where there are manuals attached to the type of aircraft.

Because for certain type of aircraft there might only be manuals attached to it and not service bulletins and vice versa, therefore I am requested to create this function.

My search form includes other criteria too but the check box where there is an attachment is giving me trouble.

Mailing Labels from a Search Form

Mailing Labels from a Search Form Icon
I have a Search form (frmSearch) based on the method of Allen Browne ([LINK]) which I highly recommend as it creates queries on the fly. It is based on a query (qrySearch). I can easily export the results to Excel with a short VBA code I found (Send to Excel).

What I need is to create labels from these results. I have created a report to generate labels using the Access 2007 Label wizard. This report is also based on the same query as the Search Form.

I thought that if I obtain my search results I could simply send these to the label Report using a macro ("Open Report"). Unfortunately all I get is ALL RECORDS RETURNED, not the searchform subset of records in front of me.

I am unable to base the labels Report on the Search Form. Can this be done with a Macro or is it strictly VBA? If VBA, is there an example I can follow?
