Q: Sharing an Access Database

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 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.

Hi,

I have created a new database and would like to share it among my team. However, when another user opens it, it says file already in use. How can I get the database to allow multiuser access.

I need it so that when information is entered it gets updated in real time on other users machines as well.

Please let me know if you have any solutions.

Regards,

Archie

I want to share a database from my Windows XP pc with a laptop with Vista. I have tried network sharing, usb replicating and cannot get the information I put into the laptop to replicate on the pc. I have a feeling this should be easy, but cannot find a way to do it. Help much appreciated?
 

A:Sharing access database

Are you using replication to allow you to work on the laptop remotely and then synchronize the changes later on? If so, after you make the data changes and network them back together are you using "Tools">>"Replication">>"Synchronize Now"? This will synchronize the changes you have made in both.

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 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.

I work in a non-profit that does not want to upgrade the ACT software. We are running 3 computers on XPPro as a peer network. We had to replace two of the computers recently when the old machines just died.

We had licensed copies of ACT! 2000 on all machines with a shared database on one of the rigs. We had three different operating systems on the old setup: W2K, Win98, XPPro. Now we have XPPro on all. Unfortunately when I reinstalled ACT on the two new rigs they won't recognize the database on the shared folder. The message is that the selected database is not an ACT database, even though it has the ACT icon in front of the name of the db.

I tried assigning a drive letter to the shared folder but to no avail. Now I am out of ideas. Any suggestions?

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?

Access should prompt them to either open the DB file or convert it to the newer version on startup. If it doesn't you can open the newer version of Access and go to Tools > Database Utilities > Convert Database.
Warning: Everything in your DB may not convert properly so be ready to do some work if this happens.

I have an access database, one of the forms I am working with has a subform. I want to be able to print part of the main form, and parts of the suboform. I can do this by inserting the form key number and the subform key number, then it prints what I want. What I am looking for is to be able to be in a clients record and push print and without having to enter anything it prints the fields in the form and the subform that I have in a report. I hope this makes sense. Is there a macro that I can put together to do this?

Thank you in advance for any help. .

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.

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.

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)

I have an issue with an access database. When I print out a report one of my columns only prints out 4 out of the 5 digits. This happens with 2 machines. On other pcs the 5 digits appear in output of the report. I have checked the resolutions of the pcs and they are the same. I cannot figure out why only 4 digits appear out of the 5.

Can anybody help?

thanks

I am using a form to enter data that is updated to table. The problem is that the calculated fields in the Form do not update in the table while everything eles does. Can anyone help please.
 

A:Access Database

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.

I have an access 2003 database that calls a VB6 module. The module starts and then I get a run-time error 75 path/file access error. I can execute the vb module outside of access but I have to run as administrator for it to work correctly. What can I fix so that the call from access will execute? I believe the issue is with comctl32.ocx and the status bar control inside the vb module.

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: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.

I want to make a database listing CDs and track titles. I can't figure out how to go about this, since the number of tracks vary so widely on different CDs. Some CDs have 23 tracks! Do I need to create 23 fields just for those few?

Better yet, can I make an expandable field that will keep creating new data fields as needed?

I know how to set up a basic database, so I don't need help with that.

Thanks.

A:MS-Access: How to Create a CD Database

The idea that you propose in having a single table that lists the CD Name (Album Name) and the tracks together as a single line item isn't a very effective method of making that database for exactly the reasons you raised. Rather than having them in one table, split them up and relate them.

The way I would go about doing this is...

Table 1: Albums
Fields: Album Name, Artist, Year, Genre, Whatever other fields you might add
Primary Key: Either make it a composite key with Album Name and Artist or create an additional field which contains a unique identifier such as a Number. I would suggest creating a unique field as the primary key as it is easier to work with.

Table 2: Tracks
Fields: Song Title, Artist, Album, Track Number
Primary Key: I would go with Song Title and Artist as a composite Primary Key.

Table 3: Artists (If you so choose)
Fields: Artist, any other info about the artist or group you wish to include.
Primary Key: Artist Name

The important thing is the relationships between these three tables.

Albums Table is related to Tracks Table in a One to Many Relationship (One album has Many songs).

Albums Table is also related to the Artist Table in a One to Many Relationship as well (One Artist may have Many Albums).

You need to determine what you want to have as your primary keys which will determine what the foreign keys will be in the related tables. For example, if in the Albums Table you use the Name and Artist as the Primary Key, then these fields would be related to the corresponding fields in the Tracks Table.

You don't have to follow my model exactly, but do you understand the idea of splitting up the Tracks and Album Names fields into different tables and relating them? This eliminates the problem of constantly having to add fields for new tracks. It'll also make queries significantly easier to sculpt.

Hope this helps

Currently I'm working on a project at work and am unsure as to what would be the best way of implementing the following concept: There is a need to track certain access to labs and software within the building. An end user should be able to submit a pre-created form (likely in infopath) and it should automatically be added to a database over a network drive.

I am happy to provide more detail of the task if needed, I just need to know what the best implementation of this concept would be. The process should be something an end user should be able to just submit without difficulty. Thanks in advance.

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.

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

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'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.

In that case you will want (1) your vendor table, with their names and details and an ID-key field, (2) the vendor-investment table, in which each vendor's ID key from table (1) is used with the various investment options offered, (3) a customer table, with their names and an ID-key field, and (4) a customer-investment table, in which the customer's ID key is cross-referenced to the selected vendor investment record(s) from table (2).

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.

Any greater than 32,767 and you will risk losing them in the conversion, but if its just a para or two you should be fine, but you will see it truncated, with the rest 'hidden', so to speak. Its an inbuilt limitation I'm afraid. You could try splitting the contents to an additional field, though that could be messy to look at and manipulate.

i would like to ask for database performance :

currently i split my ms access database to front end (form interface) and backend. the backend file i put on shared folder on dedicated pc, which i assume as server. the database then access by 10 staff, which having the frontend file on each pc. the backend file was ~20MB in size.

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.

Cheers

Hello,

I am upgrading my membership database for local sports club

I am trying to visualize payments, but I dont know how to link the toggle buttons in my form with table fields (see attached file)
 

A:MS Access members database

Can you tell me what the database is designed to do?
As it does not appear to be designed correctly for keeping records of membership payments etc.
What are the p, n, s and plj field for?

I am trying to install Outlook 2000. I get ..."Error 1919, error configuring ODBC data source, ODBC error 6, MS access database component not found in registry. Verify that the file MS access database exists and that you can access it." I have tried searching for this file with out luck. I have downloaded all XP updates. The "free" expert phone consultation that comes with certain services and hardwear, had me doing a lot of reconfiguring of my system to solve other problems. All kinds of things didn't work after that. I have finally managed to get every thing working again, but wonder if this is something else that the "expert" had me turn off. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
 

A:can't find MS access database

Hi nvb,I dont know if this will help,I found it during a search,
This error is caused by missing operating system components on your PC. These components are required to connect to ODBC databases.

Resolution
1. Download and install Microsoft Data Access Components v2.7 from Microsoft. Note that the download link is at the bottom of the Microsoft's web page.
2.
Download and install Microsoft Jet 4.0 SP3 from Microsoft. Note that the download link is at the bottom of the Microsoft's web page

And I think the place to go to for that is here http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/nhp/Default.asp?contentid=28001860

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...

I have several databases in Access 97 that reach their maximum size during operation. I have to compact the database and start over each time. It sure would be nice to be able to insert some code in the startup module/macro that would compact the database before running the remaining code.
Is it possible to compact the database that is currently open with some code in the startup macro/module?
 

A:Access Compacting a database

Databases must be closed in order to compact.
A closed DB cannot run VBA.
You'll be happy to know that Access 2K has a "compact on close" feature.

Well, you could try downloading the trial version of this program:

and it will tell you the first 2 letters of your password - it might help you remember...

These guys will apparently remove the password for free if you send them the file, but I've never used it, so caveat emptor...

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've been tasked to set up an Access Database that will accept input from Excel spreadsheets Question Database Access from a template file that is created and distributed to several employees The files will contain about fields some inventory and some dollar amounts as well as a few contact information type fields I'm okay up until this point Now these templates will be completed once a month and turned in If the data was replacing the previous amounts in the fields I'd know how to Access Database Question do this easily but the daya needs to be tracked for each month So January will have a customer account with fields February that same customer account will have new data potentially in all fields So rather than have one record for each customer I'll need to have one for each month that goes by I may be sounding vague on this so ask questions as needed but I'm not sure how to go about this If I create a February record the customer info account number etc will all be the same so wouldn't that cause issues going forward If there's no easy way to do this does that mean Access might not be the best solution I believe Access was suggested so queries could be run to extract data

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)

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?

Hey all,

I have at least two user's that access a 212 MB Access database. It was working fine up to a few days ago. Now they are having some funky stuff happening. Using both or either Access 2000 and Access 2003 they are getting this error message some times when they try to open the database:

"You do not have exclusive access to the database at this time. Any changes you make may not be saved."

This happens to multiple users. When they access the database a .ldb file appears indicating it is locked. Some times the user can make changes and some times not. The file is located in a place similar to this: G:\share\subfolder\atc board database.mdb

I've Google'd the error message and haven't found anything that really fixes the issue. Any thoughts?

Hi! I'm a web designer - new to databases.

I'm setting up a database for a DJ company, and wanted a second opinion. Is it better to create one table called "Events" (which would necessarily hold a space for only occasionally required fields like BridesName and GroomsName), or to break the table down into a table for Weddings, Parties, Mitzvahs, etc. and either risk some form of redundancy. I'm leaning toward the first option, but wasn't certain, and wanted a second opinion.

Thank you!!!

PS - Using Access 2007 (but I don't know that it's relevant to this question) Thank you.
