Access database problem

Q: Access database problem

In my database program the user has the option to delete clients from a list or add new ones. This works fine unless all clients are deleted and the database becomes empty. Once this happens, the user is still able to add new clients to the empty database. However, back in the forms area, it will not allow new data to be entered in the fields for the new clients.

I'm using Windows XP and Microsoft Access 2003. When I make a report or label, the background color is gray. I've tried to change the background in design view and it seems to be changed, but the report still shows and prints the gray background. I think there must be a background color default somewhere that I changed since all new reports and labels seem to show and print in gray now. Any help to get rid of this would be appreciated. Thanks!
 

A:Simple Access database problem

Hi dhari,

Welcome.

Ok...to change an object's (form, label, textbox) background or back color the following code should work:

objectname.backcolor = rgb color

so for example if your label's name is Label1...you should write:

Label1.backcolor = vbWhite

or

label1.backcolor = RGB(255,255,255)

The color you choose is up to you.

Hope this helps.

Best,
Zhouma

As part of my coursework, I have to create an Access Database. I have a slight problem where, if you go to the form 'frmCustomer' and try to add a new record in the frmAllBookings subform within the frmBooking subform, it will not let you add the new record and will display the following error:

Cannot add record(s); join key of table 'tblBooking' not in recordset.

I have gone through all the settings and I can't figure out what's causing it. Everything else seems to work fine.

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.

Hello,

I'm currently creating a simple database program using Vb.net as for my API and Ms Access as for my database.

I'm doing a log-in window in my program where there is a username and password textbox.

I have created an account table (with 3 attributes - id, username and password) in MS Access and it's properly connected to my vb.net program (I just tested it a while ago by inserting id, username, and password using the program that i've created in vb.net).

My problem now is I can't figure out how to check the inputs in username and password textbox (in my log-in program) and check if it's equal to the records of username and password in my database in MS Access.

Any help is highly appreciated.

Hi everyone,

While I am not a tremendously experienced Microsoft Access user, I did manage to set a database password for a file of mine.

I thought this had made it secure however now we have discovered that when the file is emailed to another computer it can be opened without having to put in the password.

I thought that putting a password on the database would mean that the password would need to be entered no matter where the file was opened. Is there any way I can secure my file across any computer that it could possibly be opened up on.

We are running Office XP on Windows XP.

Thanks,

Layla

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.

Generally, calculated data isn't stored in tables. There is no need for it. If you calculate data, you use it in queries or reports . . . when you create a report, you base it on your query, not your table.

A:Access DataBase

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:

[Forms]![FormName]![ControlName]
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.

When entering a form..the page normally start with a blank page/form..what code can I use in Macro or Visual Basic..to have the form blank..when entering the form..so that you can just add..new data..instead of having to click on add new data..
 

A:Access Database

First, this is really the wrong forum for this question. It should either be in Applications or Development. I only saw this post because I was checking on a post I made here before but I don't usualy visit this forum often.

If you want a form to open ready to take new data, set it's Data Entry property to Yes. (You'll find that property in the Data tab of the forms properties.) If I misunderstood the question, post back and give more details.

Good Luck!

Hey i need some help with a project i have for work.

my boss wants a type of program set up that controls our stock and products.

In this program i want to be able to input product codes categories invoices suppliers stock on shelf and stock on order and maybe a few similar things.

do u think microsoft access will be able to help me create this? or is there another program out there that will make it easier to do?

please help i havent started it yet just trying to educate myself as best i can and everday my boss asks how its all goin.
 

A:database help access 03?

Access is perfect for this application.
What kind of products are you dealing with?
Do you "Supplier" lists?
Do you have more than one Supplier for items.
Is the stock used within your area ie by yourselves rather than being sold to a Customer?
Do you want Categories and Sub Categories of stock?
Do you have "Re-Order" levels? (Minimum stock when a new order is required)

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.

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

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:

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

A:Cannot open Access database

romlisys, can you create a new Blank Database on the "Server", close it and then open that?
If you can then I would suggest that you open that database and "Import" everything from the copy of the original on your computer (that you can open). You will need to import all of the
Tables, Queries, Forms, Reports, Macros and Modules. It is very quick because you can use "Select all" for each section.

If you can't open a new Blank database it would suggest that you have some "Folder" permission type problems.

A:Splitting an MS Access Database

33M is not that big for an Access database, but they are generally stored on a server. I assume you have this one at home and suspect that your tables are not properly normalized. Why don't you export one of them, preferably your biggest one and email it to me (zipped probably) and I'll check it out for you.

Otherwise, you could create a new blank database and export a table or two to it, then link the table to your existing database. However, linked tables can only be changed in its own database.

A:Access Database Question

You can have two tables in Access, one with Customer account details with a unique ID (autonumber should work fine) and the other with the monthly transaction details.
When you are adding the data from the spreadsheet, you could update the existing customer details or add new customer details, and insert the transaction details in the other table for that customer using the ID as reference.

I haven't thought about this fully, so there could be gaps in the logic

EDIT:
1. Whenever you are adding the data from the spreadsheet, you would need to check if the customer already exists in the customer table and insert or update as necessary (if updating, get the customer ID for inserting the transactions).

2. Even when you are updating the customer record, you will need to make sure it has to be updated (could be spelling mistakes in the new record)

The shareholder and the candidate tables are static and the vote table is updated. YOu need some kind of validation to ensure that each shareholder only casts 3 votes and that they don't vote for the same cadidate twice. Unless you are doing all of the data entry and then it should be fine.

there's an option, which is upsizing the backend to be sql. then install ms sql server express 2008 r2 on "server" pc, then host the backend file and modified the frontend file so, it'll access the backend database on sql connection.

is this will increase any performance from current setting?

thank you.

A:Database - MS Access Backend vs MS SQL

Hi there
probably not the answer you are looking for but if you use MySQL (FREE for non commercial users) you will improve your DB performance compared with MS ACCESS by literally ZILLIONS of percent.

It's slightly more complex to get up and running but there are tutorials all over the web.

Beats running a "cut down version" of ms sql too.

Incidentally MySQL in combination with Apache, and PHP makes a great WEB server too (WAMP). Also compatable with Linux where the same combination is called LAMP.

Hi All - I'm the new girl on the block and any assistance you could provide would be greatly appreciated!! To begin I'm developing a Training Provider db in Access to hold various information. I've been going nuts for most of the day trying to figure out how to create a search field. I want to be able to pull information by provider, instead of scrolling through each record. This is my 1st attempt to ever create my own db and I really want it to run smoothly. It would be fantastic if someone could teach me how to create a search field.
 

A:Search an Access Database

Welcome to Tech Guy, new girl! I'm the old girl on the block, hee hee.

Guess what. It's sooo easy, and the instructions are right here:

Oh...I changed the title of your post. Sometimes, people only have a few minutes to answer questions (usually 'cause they're at work and oughtta be working, LOL), so it's best to provide the application in the title name, and also put the version in the body of your post. Some people put that stuff in their signature so they don't have to remember it every time.

Hi :

is it possible to compact a password protected Access 2000 database from code? I tried this:

DBEngine.CompactDatabase "c:\backend.mdb", "c:\backend1.mdb", ";pwd=password"

but I get an "Invalid password" error. Yet the password correctly opened the backend.mdb without a fuss in normal circumstances.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Ian
 

A:Compact Access database

I don't think you can compact a DB from code unless the code is run from another DB.

See... a DB has to BE closed to compact it.
So it stands to reason that you can't be running code while it's closed...

Hi Folks I have a desktop running Win Pro and acting as a file server in an office There are other Windows computers in the office all with a mapped network drive from the server We have an MS Access Database which Access Sharing Database an quot lives quot on the server's hard drive and therefore is accessible to all those in the LAN By default MS Access is set up to allow more than one user access read write the database However for some reason we cannot achieve this in our office Once one person has the database open the second person can double click on the database icon there is a flicker as if the application opens and instantly closes Sharing an Access Database and that's it No sharing The strange thing is that if someone on the LAN has the database open a user physically at the server Sharing an Access Database can open up the database thereby allowing more than one user The key is that of the two people accessing the database one of them must be accessing it from the server itself This is obviously sub-optimal Is this is a Windows issue or something relating to MS Access Any ideas Thanks

I am trying to set Ebay's Item No as the primary key in Access 2000, but it will not allow me to do that. I keep getting null number errors no matter what I try. Nothing at all works. Is this a problem with this version of Access, or does anyone know how to circumvernt this? Better yet, is there anyone out there that is willing to set up a database for us, one that will also incorporate some Excel functions? Thank you.

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.
TIA

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.

Built an accounting database:AR, AP, CD,PR,JE, GL........etc.
Looking for help with some access 2013 issues.
1 Need to tie all those tables to create a general leger and a financial statement(It's not the GL I'm concerning
about as much as how to move data from tables to GL
e.g.- For AP every entry on a form has two sides one debit another credit and they need to be reflected in
GL by account number and that where my problem is

2 In my forms need to have a multiple line entries per transaction (like a sales order)
 

A:access 2013 database

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.
Can you show me a screenshot of your table Relationships?

I set up and maintain an Access 2000 database in a hospital to track patients in a particular program. The hospital has signed with another info system operator and it looks like they are changing to Oracle. I know nothing about the database and am wondering how much different it is from Access and if I will be able to import my Access database and queries into the Oracle database. The hospital does not support Access and has not done so in the past. Our department is apparently the only one using Access; however, we may be able to keep using Access even tho we aren't supported by the IS operator. BUT if we can make the change w/o a lot of problems, maybe we should do so. I'm self taught on Access and will probably have to take outside classes on my own for Oracle.

Any suggestions for me.

Is it possible to open an entire access database (reports, queries, tables, etc.) as read-only? I figured out how to make forms read only but I would like to just make the entire database read only.

Ive been trying to put a copy of my database onto a cd-r. "save & save as" on the file menu are always in faint writting and i can not select them. Any idea's as i desprately need to give a copy to my unie teacher? Help Me Please
 

A:Access- Cant save database?

First, make sure it is not Read-Only (right-click, Properties). If you are trying to save the whole database, then you should be able to save as to the CD. If you are trying to just save a table (or some other portions of the database), make a blank database and import those items into it.
Good luck.

I'm trying to import a database to an existing database. Both are identical, aside from their WO_NUM field, which distinguishes each record (and is primary key).

I have enough information in the database fields to make the database I want to import match. The problem is that the database is not allowing me to manually enter data. When I try a manual increment of the WO_NUM table, I am getting the following message:

ODBC-call failed.

[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][SQL Server]Violation of UNIQUE KEY constraint 'UC_TASKS_WOID_1'. Cannot insert duplicate key in object 'TASKS'.(#2627)[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][SQL Server] The statement has been terminated. (#3621)

Any help is appreciated. Thank you.
 

A:importing database in access

I'm assuming you are importing the tables, it seems like you are importing the primary key also, that will cause a problem because there will be duplicates.

You can try dumping the table into Excel and strip off the ID column and then import the excel table or Paste it into the table. Access will create new ID's for it.

Hi there,

Just checking with you guys.

Will this database work if a job needed one or more parts?

I can post a print screen of the relationships between the tables.

Access database not opening completly

I have a user that is having Microsoft Access 2003 issues. There is a database created for this base only but here is what is happening.

He moved from one building to another. At the first bldg. he had all rights and access. He moved the same machine to another bldg. and tried to log on. He was able to log on but he is unable to access certain parts of the database. We have changed his permissions so that he has full permissions and we have changed the macros to that it is low. When that didn't work we reloaded Office. None of that worked. Some things will give him an "open report error" but on others it won't give him any errors at all. It just dosn't open. Any ideas?
 

A:Access database not opening all the way

Is that on a domain? Or just a workgroup?

If it's a domain, you have a whole mess of permissions to check. Maybe you missed just one?

As an experiment. Try to copy the whole database, COPY, to his machine directly and open it from there. If he can't even access it locally, then there has to be a problem only between Access and the DB. Usually some kind of version conflict.
