Access Tip: MsgBox with vbYes
By Richard Rost   Richard Rost on Twitter Richard Rost on LinkedIn Email Richard Rost   13 years ago

I've added a new TIP to the Tips & Tricks section. I get asked this question a lot, and even though I cover it in SEVERAL of my Access classes, people keep asking. How do you use a MsgBox to get a reply (usually Yes or No) from the user. Here's the answer.

Phil, if your disbursements are NEGATIVE to begin with, then Excel will ADD them (remember, subtracting a negative number is the same as adding it). So if you have A=B-C and C is a negative number, that's the same as saying A=B+C. Check and see if that's the case. If not, contact me via the TechHelp page and I'll give you instructions for sending me your sheet so I can look at it.

Richard: I have a simple problem with Excel. I am running a ledger for the Veterans and have my funds either added or subtracting from the bank (single accounting procedure); I am using a sum total for all entries, i.e. (=sum(F5:N5) all the way down on the bank column. However, at the bottom where I have my totals - income and disbursements, I take the total I start with; add my income; subtract my disbursements; and the total is adding my disbursements rather than subtracting them. My formula is =E4+E59-E60. This has happened many times where the subtractions are being added rather than subtracted. Everything else is fine? I can send a copy of my ledger but I can't do it in this blog? Read More...
