Read age birthday card report by William @ 4/2/2013
I have basic customer form, and am still a new user.  I made mistake of putting birthdate as mm/dd/yyyy.  Now I don't know how to select/make report of birthdays to send out BD cards monthly. needed format of yyyy/mm/dd  I guess.  How should I fix this. Any lesson to buy? or simple fix.

Reply from Richard Rost:

Access is going to store dates in your tables however your WINDOWS REGIONAL SETTINGS are configured. Usually that's mm/dd/yyyy for USA and dd/mm/yyyy for the rest of the world. Check your Control Panel.

Now, if you have the dates stored WRONG in your table because you were entering them that way, you can fix them all with an UPDATE QUERY. You'll need to break down the dates using the component functions MONTH, DAY, and YEAR, and then reassemble them again with the DATESERIAL function.

Read Birthday Report by Lovely orange @ 8/20/2012
Good day!

Please help!

In access:

I have a form that will generate a birthday report either every week or month. (the year is not necessary).


The user chooses, textboxes (StartDate and EndDate). After he chooses it, he will click a button that will generate to the birthday report.

Sample: Start Date: August 19
             End Date: August 25
(Note: The year is not necessary)

After choosing the fields (StartDate and EndDate), click the "Generate" Button. It will automatically list the people's birthday from Aug 19 to Aug 25 in the Report.

Thanks for the help!

An Access Newbie.

Read Birthday Reminder Popup by Alan Hill @ 1/4/2011
Hi Roshan Kamble
Are you using the CaendarDB that Richard created?
If you are you do not need a pop-up form. Just run your calendar form but add a field to your listbox and your table of course [Birthday] Iterate through your listboxes if Birthday is Yes then change the background colour of your listbox. If you would like the code let me know and I'll post it.
Richard taught us how to grey out {not current month} it's just an extension of that. The trick is Interating through your listboxes. I set mine up Yellow background if there is a record, Green Header for School Holidays, Purple Header for Public Holidays, Red Background for Birthdays. Works a treat. I have Next Month Buttons ect. You just have to make sure you repaint all your listboxes when you change months or years ect.
PS I populated my Listboxes with a SQL statement. If you do not live in USA you will need to convert on the right side of your WHERE clause = USDate format for it to work 28/12/2011 has to be 12/28/2011. I do not know why. It does does. Probably because it's not an Australia or British product. Have Fun  
Best wishes Alan Hill

how to get birthday reminder pop up messagebox in access 2007

Reply from Richard Rost:

I talked about generating a list of birthdays for a particular month in this blog post. To make a popup reminder for today's birthdays, you could just make a query that shows people with a birthday =Date() which is today's date. Now to automate it popping up, you would need to put some VBA code in the OnOpen event for your startup form... something like:

if DCOUNT("*","BirthdayQuery")>0 then docmd.openform "BirthdayListF"

This will count the number of birthdays that are today and then open up your birthday form if any exist. I'm sure there are a million different ways to implement this, but this is the quickest way I can think of to do it off the top of my head. Maybe I'll do a short Tip video or seminar on it. Neat question.
