VBA code to search form field properties
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.
Thank you for taking the time to report an issue.
What's wrong... Please write below.
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.
Private Sub Form_Load()
strFormAdd = Me.AllowAdditions
strFormDel = Me.AllowDeletions
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
The table opens but only the first record is updated. The code works well as a standard VBA search code on another form.
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 = form.frmName.city.value, or something like that ?
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
"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:
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.
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?
