Here's what's coming up soon...


I'm continuing to work on Access Developer 14 today. I was hoping to release the next lesson last week, but I had an emergency problem on the web site that took me 3 days to fix and set me back. In any case, look for that soon. If you're interested in joining the class as we build the POS system, here's a link: Access Developer 14 Read More...

Get Rid of Tabs Link 
Shawn Hicks   
Mon 7/6
I created a database for our Animal Control.  Everything was working fine until I changed up my form and started using tabs.  In the owner and animal tabs, I have a drop down where user I can select the owner and animal, and then it populates the fields within the tab.  It worked fine until I moved the fields to the tabs.  Now they won't populate.  Is there another code I should use, instead of "ME", when working within tabs?

I really hate tabs. Can't stand them. I even say so in my Beginner and Expert classes numerous times: DON'T USE TABS! Why? When you start getting into more advanced stuff, like you're finding out, they become a nightmare to work with. I'd rather have multiple smaller forms, or have to scroll, than to use tabs. But, generally, if you drop a field, let's say FieldA in a tab, then it should behave like the rest of the controls on the form. Should. But sometimes it doesn't. Good luck! What's your code that does the populating?

I must have missed that.  I was considering going back to just the form.  Here's the code for owner and animal:
Private Sub OwnerID_Change()
Me.LastName.Value = Me.OwnerID.Column(1)
Me.FirstName.Value = Me.OwnerID.Column(2)
Me.Address.Value = Me.OwnerID.Column(3)
Me.City.Value = Me.OwnerID.Column(4)
Me.State.Value = Me.OwnerID.Column(5)
Me.Zip.Value = Me.OwnerID.Column(6)
Me.Phone.Value = Me.OwnerID.Column(7)

End Sub

Private Sub AnimalID_Change()
Me.AnimalType.Value = Me.AnimalID.Column(1)
Me.OtherType.Value = Me.AnimalID.Column(2)
Me.PrimaryBreed.Value = Me.AnimalID.Column(3)
Me.SecondaryBreed.Value = Me.AnimalID.Column(4)
Me.PrimaryColor.Value = Me.AnimalID.Column(5)
Me.SecondaryColor.Value = Me.AnimalID.Column(6)
Me.Sex.Value = Me.AnimalID.Column(7)
Me.SpayNeut.Value = Me.AnimalID.Column(8)
Me.AniName.Value = Me.AnimalID.Column(9)
Me.DateofBirth.Value = Me.AnimalID.Column(10)
Me.Age.Value = Me.AnimalID.Column(11)

End Sub

Splitting Names Link 
Shelagh Fagan     
Mon 7/6
My issue is about a default value in a table. I have a lastname,firstname field that I need to split. I have the RIGHT/LEFT/INTRS coe strings and I have used them sucessfully in a form. They enter lastname,firstname and the first name & last name appear in their boxes on the form totally correctly. But I realized that I really need to do this in the ARTIST TABLE. The combined field is called FullNameSQ. So I put in the relevant field  the exact expressions I used for the form fields & it says "can't find FullNameSQ". So I tried [T_Artist]![FullNameSQ]. Doesn't like this either. Why doesn't this work? Its an existing field in the table. When we enter a new record ( either directly or via the form) I want the First Name and Last Name fields to populate automatically. Then I don't need the expressions on the form.

So you're able to successfully split a FullName field into FirstName and LastName using form text boxes? OK. Now just create FirstName and LastName fields and bind text boxes to the appropriate fields.

Append Query copying data twice Link 
Jim Byers    
Fri 7/3
O.K. I've got another one I don't understand.

I've set up a query to transpose or append relevant information to a NewCustomerT table from the existing CustomerT table.
I've set this up on the originating table/form to send the data to the new table/form rather than calling for it from the new table/form. Not sure if that is relevant. Read More...

Hi Jim. First, you can't embed any images or links in posts in my Forums. I disabled any links or tags for security reasons. I had one customer who thought he was being cute - posted an image embedded from his web site for me to look at (like you did) and then after the conversation was over he changed the image to something inappropriate. So, since then I don't allow images. I'm working on a way you can upload images to my site to be included in your posts, but that's a feature I haven't implemented yet.

Control Wizard on Subform Link 
Thomas Corbett    
Wed 7/1
My control Wizard is not working in the design controls. I am not trying to use it on a sub-form and the "Use Control Wizards" is chosen. Any solutions?
Richard Rost    
Thu 7/2
You can't use the control wizards on SUBFORMS. You have to open the form up by itself. Limitation of Access. I never knew this myself either (because I don't use the wizards unless I'm teaching them). But after a little research, it appears this is the case. I just learned something too!

I am not using it on Sub-Forms. I even started a new database and brought everything in and it still didn't work :(
