Microsoft Access Forum

Welcome to the Microsoft Access Forum. Access is by far our most popular topic here at Computer Learning Zone. This forum is for everyone to read but only students (paid customers) can post here. If you'd like to become a student, all you have to do is enroll in one of my courses. After you create a logon, you will have full access to the Forums.

Having problems with your Access database? Before posting your question, check to see if it's already been answered. You can use the Search feature to look for keywords. There's also the Access Troubleshooting Checklist which covers solutions to many common problems. If neither of those things help, make sure you post exactly what you're doing, what the specific error message is, what you've tried, and any other details we might need to help you. Don't just say, "I get an error." Tell us what the error is and what you're doing. We're not mind readers. I wish. LOL

Hi everyone, I need some help with a report I am doing.
On my report I have 2 unbound text boxes. One gives me the total of Members the other gives the total of paying members. I want a 3rd Text box to give me the percentage of Paying Members. I can,t seem to get a formula that works. Read More...

It should just be a matter of math. If you've got Text1 and Text2 then in Text3 just make the ControlSource =Text1/Text2. Provided they're numeric values, that should be all you need to do.

You have to switch the Navigation Pane to LIST view (Right Click > View By > List). One of my members just emailed me asking about Navigation Pane options so I'm going to make a TechHelp video about this soon. The other option (Tabbed vs. Overlapping Windows) is in your Database Options. File > Options > Current Database > Overlapping Windows. And yes, that's covered in Access Beginner 1 which LOTS of people skip over!

I like to ask if I split the database with front end & Back end.  How do I tell the VB code to mkdir on the location where the Back end resides?

You can issue the MkDir command in any folder you like, however if you're trying to get the folder that a linked table is stored in, that's a bit more work. I believe you can access it through the TableDefs collection and then look in the table properties. It's been a while since I've done this, but if you really need a solution let me know and I'll play with it some.

Michelle, I've never seen this before. I need more of a description of exactly what's happening in order to help you. Exact error messages or behavior, please. And of course, try running down the Access Troubleshooter.

Hello Richard

Just wanted to let you know your access troubleshooting looks like is going to fix my problem wished I could send a photo to you as you can be aware of what I was seeing but can't see a way of uploading a file thank you for your help will start rebuilding final database again tomorrow as it is 8:07 pm Tuesday as I'm writing this but went through all your troubleshooting with access and discovered what you suggested worked by creating a new database and importing the objects e.g. tables forms it has seemed to fix the problem I would suggest making a quick video on this I could do this myself but do not have the logos to really show what it is about anyway I'm not as good as you as a teacher yes I have been told I go into detail and very patient at teaching people have started my own YouTube video channel which I may end up putting how to fix this problem on it thank you again Michelle

If you mean the Employee Work Log that I create in Access Expert 11, then YES, that's what it covers. :)
