Access Database Criteria

Q: Access Database Criteria

I have an ACCESS database several excel files imported that contact 3 or 4 columsn of data to evaluate. I created queries to identy all the item codes and there corresponding values. I need to create a query that will identify only the item codes where 3 variables do not exactly match for each segment: MM, KK, UB(Price List, Debit Credit, Damage Track). In addition, those items that have blanks or zeros for those 3 veriables need to be identified as well.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

I have a database with about 900K records of data like this:

Six fields of data including one field which is a unique value (serial number). I'm presented with a new database (new set of data) every day, the same fields and data format but brand new data.

On a daily basis, from each new database/set of data, I need to pull only those records (about 300 records for a report) which match certain serial numbers. Example: (serial number 234235 OR 23412 ... etc...about 300 serial numbers.

I'm a query design beginner so I dont know exactly how to approach this problem in ms access.

Should I just use query design in ACCESS and type in the 300 serial numbers as criteria & save that as a query? I may need to change the serial numbers queried from time to time

Any & all tips are very much appreciated!

Place the special serial numbers in their own table and in the query join the 2 tables via the serial number.

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.

Hi I am new to access 2003 and need some help with a query I am working on. I need to know if it is possible to refer to a value in a table when writing the criteria line for my query. The criteria I am trying to write is between [table name]![value1]and table name]![value2]. I am trying to produce a date range from another table. This query is part of a three query macro and each query needs the date range in it.

Michael, welcome to the Forum.
You can do what you want using the Dlookup function, however it is more normal to do this from a Form where the Dates are entered and are then available to all of the Queries.

I have several queries which use a control on a form for the criteria but now I want to use the same query for several different forms

The original criteria was like [Forms]![Myform]![txtBox1]

I have tried to replace [Myform] with a Public variable declared in a module and tried all sorts of single and double quotes but I can't seem to find a syntax that works.

I've even tried declaring a variable of control type but still the query won't accept it

Anyone know how to vary the criteria of a query to suit the form calling it?

A:Access: Query Criteria as a Declaration

Well .. you could try substituting [Myform] with the name of a function which you could write and place in a global module. The function would return the name as a text string, which would be 'slotted in' to the criteria just as if you had typed it (he said hopefully).

How are you intending to get the form name at run time - by typing it in? You could enter all the required form names into a lookup table (together with any other criteria relevant at run time) and use the function to read them and return the table name to your query criteria.

If you're not sure how to write a function to return a value in this way let me know and I'll see if I can put together some instructions with specimen VBA code (won't be in the next 48 hours though 'cos I'll be otherwise engaged!).

It would be helpful to have a rather clearer picture of how you decide which forms are to be used at runtime.

Dear Helpers!

I am running a query in Access. One of my fields has the criteria set to:

>=(Date()-14) And <=Date()

This works fine. However, I want the figure 14 to be a variable. What i mean is that I have another query which returns a figure that I would like to use in place of the 14.

I can't work out how to do so.

I have removed the -14 and replaced with:
-([MaxDateLastRunDayCount]![DaysSinceLastRun]) but when running the query I get prompted to enter a value for this.

Can anyone help? Do I need to provide more info on this problem?

I'm attempting to clean-up the data in table. My problem is the person that entered the information placed two rows of data in a single field.

In other words, the field is for a "Box Number" but the person placed two box numbers in the field. The way they did it is similar to typing a box number, then pressing "Enter" on your keyboard and typing the second box number.

Is there a select query that I can run in which I can pull all of the records that have that "enter" in them?

A:Access 2K: Select Query Criteria

Describe your data more, are the box numbers a constant length? If so a combination IF with LEN and Left or Right function will help in the criteria of an Update query.

With a constant of 4

= iif(LEN(YourField] > 4,LEFT(YourField],4),[YourField]))

And if you just want to group them together as q query criteria just

make a field that is Expr1:Len([yourfield]) and in the criteria of >4

Again I am assuming you have a constant Box number length, If you want to use an Update query I may have to explain what I mean by the first expression
also you might want to check your database options on the Keyboard tab, in the top left for "Move after enter" it must be checked for "Don't move" You might want to change it.

I have a table containing orders. I have a order date field in the form DD/MM/YYYY.

Now I would like to have a query which when I open it, displays a dialog box asking for "from" and "to" fields so that I can filter information form the table according to dates.

How could this be done? Thanks

A:Microsoft Access Query Criteria

You can do this simply by putting this in the criteria row of the query's Date column
Between [From] and [To].

A slightly more elegant way to do it is to have a form with 2 date fields where they have Date Input Masks which means that the user only has to type in the numbers and not the "/" s.
But it requires the a bit programming.

I have a table that has many records but only has 3 different stores in these records. I need to allow the user to be able to select if they want to see any combination of data to include data from 1 to all 3 stores.


Stores are 05, 64, 53

I want the user to be able to select only 05 to run reports on or select 05, and 64 to run reports on.

I tried a combo list box in a form but it only returns a blank query.

I am using this in my query to grab the data from the combo box: Like [forms]![form1]![Lookup]

The user would use a form to select the criteria and when they press a run button then the data would return in a table or query to copy and paste into excel

I think I understand what you are saying and you are likely doing some complicated SQL, when you probably don't need to.

Sounds like you have 2 tables and are comparing A to B if B has a match then display the value?

Really all you need is to have RIGHT Join between the related fields so the table A always returns all the records and only the matches from tables B.

Hi Guys,
Hoping for some help with an idea...
I've got 2 modules in Access 2010 that use Word Automation to generate two different word documents when you click on one of the two buttons. i.e Code1 is run when Button1 is clicked and Doc1 is generated, Code2 is run when Button2 is clicked and Doc2 is generated.

The documents are populated by bookmarks; the names of which correspond to names in the code.
What I am wondering is...

Is there a way to run both these modules from one button based on criteria on the form on which the button sits. e.g.
If the value of a field name, lets call the field name "Type" = the value "Storage" then run Code1 or if the field name's value is Shipping then run Code2.

A:Access 2000- filtering/ criteria/ dates/ desired filed

In the design of your query you will need to use "or" in order to receive mutliple dates. For example if you would like to see calls made on June 23 and calls made on June 5 and calls made between May 15 and May31 the criteria would state #06/23/03# OR #06/05/03# OR >#05/15/03 AND<#05/31/03#.

I tried to send an attachment with an example of the query in design view but it wouldn't send for some reason. Anyway, hope this helps!

1. I have a query already built that doesn't have any criteria built into it, because the criteria can change with the type of information that a user is looking for.

2. Rather than have users who are not familiar with Access trying to input the criteria they need on a table into the design view of a query I would like to utilize a form.

3. I would like to find out if it is possible for a user to enter the criteria they are looking for in fields on a form and have a table open with the records that match that criteria when the user clicks submit on the form. (To me it is kind of like parameter queries. But, I just want it in a form instead having the query asking the user one question at a time.)

I have a subform with information drawn from a query. The main form will have multiple entries on each day. The query is based on the date entered in the form so that as new entries are made on the main form, all of the entries with the same date show up in the subform. Right now, the subform updates after the record is completed, but I would like for it to update as soon as I enter the date. How do I do that?

I need to get all the records for two different criteria

ReqDate_Fld between [Report Start Date] and [Report End Date]


RetDate_Fld Between the same dates above

putting it in the query twice doesn't work.

The RetDate_Fld can include records where the request date ReqDate_Fld is outside the start and end date criteria.

Example item criteria for ReqDate is between 2013-04-01[Report Start Date] and 2014-03-31 [Report End Date] and I have an item returned 2014-03-28 but it was originally requested 2011-03-21. The row doesn't get selected as it's outside the start/end date.

It requires AND or is it OR but danged if I know how to get it to select everything the was requested or returned between two dates.

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?

The first thing to try after taking a backup copy of the Database is a "Repair & Compact" of the current one.

Do you "Supplier" lists?
Do you have more than one Supplier for items.

I would like to be able to link or however you do it. I would like to lets say put in the part number and then when I push enter or tab the description and cost field populates.

any help would be great.

A:access Database

you can link by selecting the table tab in the DB window and then click NEW followed by selecting Link. Then search for your other database and select the table you want to link to.

You will now have access to all the fields, it is the same as a table now except you may have sharing issues if the table is opened on the source DB.

You can use this linked table just as a regular table to make reports forms, queries etc. so you may not need the table you created with the same information as it is redundant.

So you can make a form with your linked table with a combo to select the product.
I don't know to what degree of detail you want or how much you know so if you need more help just post back.

The simplest way although it may not seem like it, is to do the following:
Create a Join Query that includes both tables/queries (whatever your using), and create Joins on the 2 Key fields (related), this query should then become the control source for you report.
Now in the new query go to the field that contains the data you will be selecting on the form. eg the ID for the Main form

In the criteria row right click and select Build, find your form and find the Id field control name. The syntax will be:

Now if you don't already have one, place a button on your form that opens the Report or query, it should only display the records for the selected records.

This called "Filter by Form"
Any problems let me know I or some one else can walk you through, it works I use it all the time.

Hello, I am using Access 2000 and have created a database with a command button that opens up a report via a macro. I would like to know how to open up single reports instead of pushing a button that brings up every report, I've been able to open up reports that are based off of queries, queries that have paramenters that need to be inputted in order to bring up single unique records, but I would like to be able to just create a button that brings just that particular unique record-report off of that particular unique record on that form. Meaning that for a record that had just been inputted for John Doe on a form, I would like to know how to create a button on that form to pull up John Doe's single report without having to build a query that asks for a parameter. Is there anyway to do this?

A:Access-Printing a single report off of a single record from an Access database form

You will have to adapt this to your own form setup; but it's just using the Where line of the OpenReport macro action.

If on the form MyFormName you have two controls called txtFirstNm and txtLastNm, and in the query underlying the report you have two fields called FirstNm and LastNm, you would put into the Where line of the OpenReport action:

[FirstNm]=[Forms]![MyFormName]![txtFirstNm] And [LastNm]=[Forms]![MyFormName]![txtLastNm]
Hope that helps.

nphcpa, welcome to the forum.
I am not sure what "AR, AP, CD,PR,JE, GL........etc." are, but it sounds like the overall design of the database may not be optimal.
The fact that you have to have the "move data from tables to GL" suggests that the data should be in a GL table but identified by it's source and split up via Queries for data input/editing.
As for item 2 it sounds like you should have a "Line Entry" sub table and subform for the Transactions.

I have a really confounding problem Situation Small non-profit organization with workstations mostly Dell Pentium s Office network uses a Buffalo server and router I don t know for sure but assume the network is problem database Access a simple Base-T The organization runs on the MS Access databases I ve designed one of which is a reservation system The major tables for that system are the Signups table where the information for each reservation is collected and the EventSched which simply contains data for all the events for the year with event type date departure and return time location program type etc The tables contain a lot of links to auxiliary tables per the attachment The database is a client server design Forms on the workstations tables on the Buffalo Each year I go in and set up the reservation tables for the next year in this case I did that yesterday I first copied the database containing the tables to a file with the name quot PublicSailTbls mdb quot After deleting all the records in the Signups EventSched Manifest and HowPaid tables to make them ready for next year s entries on the workstation on which I was doing this I also copied the Forms client side of the split database changed the name to quot PublicSailForms mdb quot and changed the links to the tables file on the Buffalo This is the same process I have used for the last years Problem is the Signups form Access database problem will open on Access database problem only two of the workstations On the others the system goes into quot indefinite busy quot hourglass Task Manager indicates Access and everything else is quot not responding quot but attempts to quot end task quot fail Only way to restore the system is to select quot Restart quot Because it worked on two workstations we thought perhaps the network was not working properly so quot regenned quot it shut all computers down shut the Buffalo and router down waited one minute then brought the network back up Didn t change anything system still works on two of the workstations but not on the others Anybody have a clue as to what s going on where I should look for the cause of this odd problem nbsp

We have quite a hefty database (approx 90meg) that we would like to split into 2 smaller databases.

The plan is that if a certain "Date" field is older than a set date or another field = "Closed" then these records can be move to a archive database. The archive database needs to still have all the forms, queries and reports.

Is there software to do this or is it a case of make a copy of the database as the archive then manually delete the records that match the above criteria.

A:Splitting Access Database

In access, create a new blank db. Go to File...Get External Data...Import...

Import all tables, queries, reports, etc. that you want.

In the table in the new DB, run a maketable query, pulling all records where Date < (cutoff date) or other field = "Closed".

This new table will have your backup info. Delete the table you initially imported.

I have an Access database which was copied to an USB device and has become corrupt. I am getting the following error message: The Microsoft Jet database engine could not find the object 'Databases'. Make sure the object exists and that you spell its name and the path name correctly. (Microsoft JET Database Engine). I have attempted to repair the database, run the JETCOMP.exe, import the data from another Access database, SQL Server, Excel; and continue to get the same error. I do not need the forms, queries, reports or macro's, only the table data. I am looking for a reliable company to look at the database and extract the data or software to get the data out. Thanks.

I have my own server and would like to know if it is possible to create a database in Access and be able to access it off the server preferably using ASP.NET.
