Read Access Wizard by Hassan A @ 6/12/2016
with wizard option on, I place a command button on the form. dialog box opens up and guides me as needed through the options. I choose open certain form. I move to form view and click to open form button, nothing happens. the error massage says, The Expression On Click you entered as the event property setting produced the following error: Ambiguous name detected: Recipe_Click.

Access 2013.


Reply from Alex Hedley:

Is the db in a Trusted Location?

If it is, have you patched your machine, might need Office updating or repairing but that's a last resort after backing up etc.

With wizard option selected, Access won't create command buttons. I have to use Macro to activate the command button.


Reply from Alex Hedley:

Which version of access are you using?

Read Command Button Wizard Makes Embedded Macros by Norm Bohana @ 1/24/2015
Thanks, I would like VBA code generate. Each time I create a new form it's not correct or complete. is there a way to show you what I mean?????


Reply from Alex Hedley:

You could upload a pic to Flickr or something similar and share the link.
You can set Access to use Code instead of a Macros for Events in the Options

If the Form is not correct then you need to update the Form to do what you want it to do.
What code did you type into your OnClick event in VBA?

Sorry but I have not received any response from my last post


Reply from Alex Hedley:

So are you wanting it to be a Macro or use VBA in your Button?
Which Form isn't correct?

First thanks for getting back to me. I just created a form in and old application and added a button using he wizard and it created VB code. I went to a new application and did he same thing and it created a macro. It's the same system. also the form was not correct.

Read Command Button Wizard Makes Embedded Macros by Richard R @ 1/18/2015
I received a great question today from Norm. To paraphrase, he says he is using Access 2007 and whenever he creates a button using the Command Button Wizard (something like open a form, find a record, etc.) the button creates an Embedded Macro for him, which he doesn't want. He wants VBA so he can edit it.

Unfortunately, if you're using the Command Button Wizard, that's the default setting, and as far as I can tell, the ONLY setting for the Wizard. You can force Access to give you the VBA editor if you're making your OWN buttons, but changing the setting under File > Options > Object Designers > Always Use Event Procedures. This, however, doesn't change the Wizard. The Wizard will still give you an embedded macro.

There is a fix, however. When you're all done creating your Wizard-based buttons, in Form Design mode, click on the Design Tab and in the Tools section you'll see an option that says "Convert Form's Macros to Visual Basic." Click on that and Access will change ALL of the embedded macros in the form to VBA for you.

Easy enough?

Read lookup wizard vs tables by John S @ 1/2/2015
is the lookup wizard just another way of making a table quickly? I am making a collection database and I want to use the lookup wizard to find less then 10 options... when I use this option, does it make a table within the dbase anyway?


Reply from Alex Hedley:

I wouldn't use Lookup Wizards. Rich explains this in Beginner 8.
It's much better to create another Table, it doesn't take long and is much better to administer.

Read packaging wizard by jay c @ 3/24/2014
I am an advanced access user with several projects under my belt.  I am currently looking to package and distribute a db to a large multiuser network.  The problem is how do I edit the program and combine it to the current db tables once packaged


Reply from Richard Rost:

Is this a split database solution?

Read packaging wizard by Roy Collins @ 3/14/2014
I have just finished a dental appointment Access data base program and I want to package and distibute it.
The instructions in the packaging wizard are not clear as to what exactly to enter.I am using Access 2007 and Windows Excell. I had Access 2003 and was able to Package my programs without to much trouble. I need a step by step instruction.
PLEASE!

Read Wizard Not Iniating by Matthew C @ 11/14/2013
Hi Amicron-ians, this issue just showed up today my subform and combo box wizards are not opening up on Access '13. Is there a way to reset or did I inadvertently hit a button? Thx All. -Matt
