In this Microsoft Access TechHelp tutorial, I will show you how to run VBA code when the user opens a form and moves from record to record. This is handy if you are doing things like changing the visibility or colors of different fields based on user input.

David asks: "In my form, I have certain fields that are made not visible based on the user’s input in other fields. For example, if the customer is not active, I can hide his Credit Limit. I used an After Update event for this. However, when I open the form or move from record to record, the Credit Limit field is still visible. How do I hide this field based on the current customer’s existing value?"

This video will show you how to do just that.

Silver Members and up get access to an EXTENDED CUT of this video which covers making custom subroutines (so you don't have to have the same VB code twice in your form), changing the color of fields and the background color of the form, using the MsgBox function to return a value (yes or no), setting the customer's credit limit to $0 if they become inactive, changing a check box into a Toggle Button, and setting its caption and color properties too! Lots more for members!
