Change Color in IFF Function Upload Images   Link

Is it possible to change the text 'color' in an iff function?
if the order is an invoice and unpaid is true then the word unpaid should appear in red, otherwise paid should be in green?

You could use Conditional Formatting, I think it's covered in Expert 19

Conditional Formatting, like Alex said, or in a form you could use an OnCurrent event, but that requires some VBA programming.

I have a table with my recent Rev. level
and I'm trying to get the latest RevID and last RevDate to show up in the "caption" bar on top of my main form. can this be done? I would like it to say,
Latest Revision [field of Rev] last updated

You can't put it directly in the Caption property, but you can put it in an event like OnOpen and say:

Me.Caption = "Revision " & RevisionField

Or something like that. This is Developer-level stuff. :)

I'm building a work order (service) database. Each account has an account number, and are assigned Project Numbers, the account number never changes but the work order number and Project number do. What is the best way to make sure that the account number is always associated with the specific account? Would the Account Number be the primary key? I know that it's a primitive question but I am unsure about it. Read More...

You showed this, but didn't mention it.
When you link EmployeeID to SalesRepID, that is the first time these fields are linked together. ***When you link EmployeeID and ServiceTechID, it states you already have a relationship, you clicked NO and Access added a second Employee Table to this view and linked the fields. ***

In Access Expert 10 when you set up the paid or unpaid and the quotation or invoice. on the printout of the quotation you don't want paid or unpaid to show up on the report. You also have it set up as an invoice so when you check the box it chages it to a quotation. How do you write it out in the querie if when you check the box you want it to be an invoice? Read More...

I have followed the instructions and gotten DLOOKUP to work!  To populate some blanks when a name is filled in, e.g. address, tel number, email etc.  BUT is there a way to keep it from showing "error" when the first field (from which it does its looking up) has not been filled in?  Once it's filled in, the errors go away.

In reply to Garry Smith: It's been a year but in case someone else looks at this and wonders themselves, the answer you were given was almost right. You DO need single quotes around the value of txtGetItemNum and you would format it the way Richard showed.  But you do NOT need quotes around the control name.  Quotes go around text VALUES, not the controls and variables that hold the values. So the last part of the DLookup would look like this: "GalleryItemID= '" & txtGetItemNum & "'") Read More...

I have used DLOOKUP on our SQL tables at work that have thousands of records and it is VERY slow.  Is there a way to speed it up, or is there another method that is faster?

Is there any way to have a series of combo-boxes that filter each other so that there is a limited list in each?  

I want to use it for both querying and entering data.  However, for querying, I am looking to connect all entries together for the exact query and, I am looking to use a filtering technique to  use only the final combo-box for entry purposes. Read More...

using the dlookup I get the correct info on the screen but it is not in the table for that screen text box.  Why is it not in the table as a combobox does is?
