Fast Form Update

Fast Form Update. Quickly Change Records in a Continuous Form

 S  M  L  XL  FS  Join Now

In this video you will learn how to quickly assign values to records in a continuous form and then automatically move to the next record with the GoToRecord acNext command. Just a tiny bit of VBA is involved. I'll show you step by step. 

Santiago from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (a Platinum Member) asks: Every day I get a list of jobs that I have to assign technicians to. There is no rhyme or reason to it, so I can't make an update query to handle the task. There's no real "criteria" for who gets it. I just look at a brief description of what the job entails and I know which tech to assign it to based on their skills, the customer, etc. I have four techs and right now it's a lot of copy and paste. I just go down the list and copy and paste, copy and paste. Can this be simplified at all? Even if I could just have a button for each of my three techs, that would make things so much easier for me. Click a button and it assigns the tech and moves to the next record.


We'll add copy and paste buttons, as well as a button to copy the current value to all of the records, and to all of the records from the current position to the end of the list.
