A:access 2010: creating a simple customer database with benifits

huzjay, welcome to the Forum.
You need a Customer table, which you have, a "Transaction table" which contains a field for the Customers ID key field plus the date and any data you want to log about the transaction, but not the sales items.
You then need a TransactionItems table to log the TransactionID and the sales items and the prices.
Do you have a Sales Items table with the item description and price?

I would not worry about the transfer of each amount over $20 to the next record, just put it all in until $120 or more is reached, then make the gift certificate, subtract the 120 from the running total and if you want add it to a "Certificates paid on" field.
These calculations can be done using VBA, the list of customers who have reached $120 can be generated by a query and displayed on a form.

I need to create an Access database that will keep track of when users take workbooks from storage, and when they were returned.

I was thinking about creating a barcode type system, so when the user takes a workbook they can be scanned for checkout, and then re-scanned to check back in (Almost like a library type system).

I also need a way to search for workbooks that have not been checked back in, and be able to print a report showing the still checked out workbooks.

If anyone can provide suggestions on the best way to design this db, I would really be appreciative.

A:Solved: Help with database design

Cheryl, try this:

Start listing, in an Excel spreadsheet, a few "records".
Then take a look at the columns you've made.

If, for instance, you will NEVER duplicate ALL three columns A, B, and C for one of your records, then make it the primary key.

If you will never dupe A, B, C, AND D, then make all 4 the primary key...

The whole idea is to never have an exactly duplicate record IN A TABLE.

Did you ever see the Webcast on Normalization?

I was hoping to create a lookup for each field, with the values being automatically loaded by Access. However, there can only be a single relationship btn tables, so this will not work........... any ideas on how to design this application? TIA

According to what I've read, Access 2010 uses the same database format as Access 2007. So this should mean I can open and run a 2007 database (with a lot of VBA code) in Access 2010 with no trouble, yes?

So why do I have the feeling that something is not going to work? Is it because I have been through to many Access upgrades?

I have a table that has all the employee info (name, id, etc) and a table that has the training info in it (class name, date taken, instructor). What I need to be able to do is show the name of the class, the date and all the employees on the screen at once and then easily register them as having attended the class, preferably with a check box or something. Thanks for any suggestions.
 

A:Access 2007 Training Database

If you search this forum you are likely to find posts on a training database.
What you need is a "Many to Many" Linking or Joining Table. This table holds the EmployeeID and the CourseID from the other 2 tables plus any other data you might need, like pass level etc

I have been searching for a while for the answer to my question with very little luck. So I thought that I would ask on how to this without my file becoming so large in my tables.

My issue is that I am trying to figure out how to do a long range schedule with no consistent work schedule. Things are constantly changing where I work and need a better way to track who is suppose to work what days. Is there something that I am missing in database design to figure this out.
 

A:Access 2007 Database for Scheduling

Zedrenael, welcome to the Forum.
I am not sure what your problem is regarding "how to this without my file becoming so large in my tables".
I can't work with Access 2007 only Access 2000-2003.
Can you show me Screen Shot of your Table Relationships?
Can you provide a brief description of what the currrent database does?
I have created a few "Appointment" type databases which is similar in concept to Scheduling so if I knew what you were trying to do I may be able to help.

matt, welcome to the Forum.
It sounds like Access has a Form to open when you open the database, it is usually a Switchboard.
Does the Error message include a "Debbug" button?
Can you still look at the database after the error message?

Hi I have a table which only ever has one record in it at a Access 2007 event Open Database time This record is created during the use of the database so when you first open the database there is Access 2007 Database Open event no record If the database is closed properly using buttons etc i have created then the record is deleted and the table is empty However if for some unforseen reason the database crashes or is closed a different way the record will not be deleted Because of this i d like to know what control you can have either when the database is first opened or when it is closed by any method of closing i e can i delete the record by default on opening the database Could i delete the record by default on closing the database Or if neither is possible is there a way Access 2007 Database Open event to drop and re create the table while opening or closing the database Help always appreciated Cheers Lewis nbsp

A:Access 2007 Database Open event

I normally have a splash form load that handles this type of stuff.

You could also use an macro named AutoExec that will be automatically run when the database loads.

You can use either of these methods to run an delete query to empty the table.

It also never hurts to also delete the record on close.

I use a main menu for that will not allow Access to close unless the user click the "exit" command button. This way I can be sure that code runs when the database is closed. This only takes a few lines of VBA code to implement. Let me know if you are interested in how to do this.

The error is showing as "The expression On Click you entered as the event property setting produced the following error: The expression you entered has a function name that Microsoft Office Access can't find."

The solution is as below:
This error is causing due to disabled macro setting by default. So you will need to enable the macro as per the following method.
Go to File > Options > Trust Center
Then Click on "Trust Center Settings".

Looking for an opinion on the best software for website design and database to fit our needs.

About Us:
Our level of experience is minimal. We understand the basics and will make it work if the software is somewhat user friendly.The software must be non-programmer friendly.

The Website:
Will have roughly 6-10 pages of interface for visitors. When you sign up there will be about 70 pages of 'database' interface with help, support etc. Users will login and store information on the database.

Website Design: Must be non-programmer friendly. Fairly inexpensive. We prefer resident software, not online design.

Database: Must be non-programmer friendly. Fairly inexpensive. Must convert to php/mysql. Must be able to handle a large number of users.

Any thoughts?

A:Database and Web Design Software

Hi and welcome to TSG. Adobe DreamWeaver is the best software for web designing, in the web designing world. Anyway it is bit expensive. So if you are looking for a free software and if you are a Microsoft user, you can download "Microsoft Visual Web Developer" for free from there site. Those are the best software for web designing. There are lots of other software which will give you the "Click and Drop" facility but I can't recommend them because I have seen lots of people having problems with them and I haven't use them.

For the database question, MySql is a good database management system and if you don't know SQL, you can use MySql/MyAdmin. Manually installing the database is a real headache so download and install XAMPP from the web site of Apache Friends. It will install Apache server, MySql and many more.

Apart from these, you can use JOOMLA, because it is a "Making stuffs easy" software. It has it's own templates and much more. I can't tell any more about that because I haven't used that, because I create sites manually.

Please ask an Mod or Admin to move your thread to web designing and develpment section, so you will have more answers.(You can do it by clicking the REPORT button at the right side of the bottom of your thread. It will open a window. Type there that you want to move this to Web Designing Section)

A:Access 2007 "3734" database lock error...

I stay away from Access these days specifically because of problems like this. I can't offer you much help with the problem other than to say that I think your project probably is corrupted, but at least your data probably isn't. You may be able to re-create it in Access by attaching the mdb file to a new db project and then copying and pasting a lot of your forms and functions over, one at a time, testing after each step so that you will hopefully catch the problem and not transfer it to the new project.

I would definitely recommend getting out of Access. MySql and VB is not a bad idea. I think, however, that, since you are used to Access, you might have an easier time transitioning to SQLServer (Microsoft SQL varies in some key areas from the pure SQL you'd use with MySQL). Also, the free version of SQLServer is probably easier to install and configure (on a local machine) than MySQL.

Depending on your needs, I'd steer you more toward ASP.net than just straight VB.net. I've developed several of these types of applications, on both platforms and I always feel handicapped when working just in VB.Net. ASP.net brings in other elements that you'd need to learn, but also provides a lot of very easy methods for displaying data that are more or less absent from VB. Plus, the web browser eases a lot of the formatting burdens that can drive you insane in VB.net. Either way, I'd recommend downloading the Express version of Visual Studio and running through some of the "Getting Started" walkthroughs; they are very helpful and will help you get a better idea of what your options are.

Good luck!

When the report previews, the form seems to go automatically on design view, so the operations to be performed on the background stop, and a message appears, indicating that nothing can be done, because the form is on design view.

If I send the report straight to the printer (normal view) then all works fine, but if there is an error on the report, there is no way to catch it until after it prints.

Is there a way to keep the report on preview and the form on form view, so everything wil work smooth as it should?

Hi,

I have an access database.

I decided to make a mde file with it out of curiousity. It has now taken my database and password protected it. I never set any password and as such cannot get access to the database.

It has taken my user name from my login, but it is not using my login password.

Does anyone know how I can override this, or reopen an older version of the database.

Thanks

I have a option contract to recieve up to 10 apples per day for the next year. I share this contract with other people. I am creating a database that will let me know how many apples are available on any given day throughout the next year.

I am thinking that I will have to set up a table with a field for date and capacity. Then subtract 1 each time someone takes an apple on that day.

Is there a better way?

Hi,
I don't support Access, nor have I been trained in it, but I've been asked if I can help in this problem.
An Access database connects externally to a SQLServer database at login time for the application. How do I find which external database they are connecting to? I know that there is a way to go behind the forms to see the source code, but I cant remember how to do this.
I cannot find an obvious User/System file dsn on the PC to give me a clue.
Thanks in advance

Here's the question- how do I open a form in an existing database from another db in Access 2010 using VBA and give it focus. I can open the external db and it's form but cannot figure how to give it focus. I'm trying to create a master form that will call various databases that each have a form. Seems simple, open the master menu, click on a button that then opens the called db and the associated form. Do my business exit the db and am back at the master form. I would be okay to just close the master db, all it has it the main menu or leave it open. Doesn't matter which I just want to open the called db and form and have its focus.

Dear ppl,

I´m writing a small database for my local flying club.
I´m experiencing a small difficulty.

I want the computer to calculate the total of charged flight time for each month and that year. Also the total of non-charged flight time for each month and that same year.

Problem: I have no idea how to write the code for the action to preform when pressed the ´Calculate´ button. I did have a small introduction in VBA using Access but my knowledge is limited in VBA.

Second problem: I would like the duration of the flight to be in this format ##:## and the sum also, instead of having to work with decimals etc. IF POSSIBLE

Hi,

I have a problem trying to open my Access Database in a Visual Basic application. I'm using VB6.

The Access database is called TTDB.mdb and was created in Access 2000. It is stored in the same location as my VB project files, and the file seems to be found but VB cannot load it. I'm using the following code in the Form_Load event:
Code:
Set DB = OpenDatabase(App.Path & "\TTDB.mdb")
The Error I get is:

(and then gives the application paths which is definately correct).Click to expand...

Any ideas how I can get this working?

I'm a newcomer to Access db. I'm using Access 2007.

I've made reports coming off of queries. Most of my queries are for limiting dates - ie: Begin date: 07/01/07 and End date: 7/31/07.

When making a report, I've been able to pick up the parameter used in my query. In other words, in the heading of my report I have text boxes with [Begin date] and [End date]. When the report runs, it obviously asks me the begin date and end date, and then these parameters are shown in the header of my report.

However, when I make a report with a CHART in it, instead of displaying the begin date or end date, it displays #Name? - like it doesn't recognize the variable.

What's the difference between a "report" and a report with a chart in it? How I can get these variables to display?

why i cannot save the backend in the network drive shared folder.?

A:Solved: Access Splitting Database

What version of access? Are you saving the backend from the 'Split Wizard'? or a manual copy and paste? Where is the message coming from? Access or file system?

May need to go to the trust center and allow trusted sites on network and make these trusted locations. Each user will need to run a FE from thier local computer to get the multi user thing working correctly. They will each have to do the trusted site thing as well.

I had an issue earlier in a coursework Database project, which has now been resolved. I have started to create the invoice and the 'Subtotal', 'Discount' and 'Total' calculated fields display '#Error'. They work in the 'frmBookingTotals' subform on the 'frmCustomer' form and I have copied them directly from the form, but yet they don't work in the invoice. The record source of the invoice points to the fields which are referenced by the calculated fields and I have checked for obvious errors, so I can't see what's wrong.

I have attached a copy of the file I am working on.

Using Access from Office XP.

Hello,

After a colleague accidentally deleted about 100 records from our database we have recently used the "User and Group" permissions to restrict the user account from making any deletions.

The problem I have is with updating the DB. Until we used permission any changes would be made by copying the DB onto my desktop, making the changes then exporting any changed forms, tables etc into the "Live" DB at the end of the day when nobody else is using it.

Now with the permissions set a copy of the database will not allow me in, it comes up with the "You do not have permission..." error message without allowing me to log in.

Any ideas?

TIA
