AfterUpdate/BeforeUpdate and SetFocus
I have some problems with the SetFocus command in a Userform with an
AfterUpdate or BeforeUpdate routine.
To make it clear to you, I made a very small Userform to demonstrate it. It
only contains 8 TextBoxes and this code:
Private Sub TextBox01_AfterUpdate()
Private Sub TextBox02_BeforeUpdate(ByVal Cancel As MSForms.ReturnBoolean)
Private Sub TextBox03_Exit(ByVal Cancel As MSForms.ReturnBoolean)
Private Sub TextBox04_Change()
I expected that in ...AfterUpdate
In the AfterUpdate code I had the detail back colour change if a check box
(tbc) = True. However if I tick the box now it turns the back colour of every
form irrespective if that record is ticked tbc or not!
Any help on solving this would be great.
Private Sub tbc_afterupdate()
If Me.tbc = True Then
Me.Section(0).BackColor = 65535
Me.Section(0).BackColor = 16777215
If you are using a continuous form, that code won't work. The good news is
that you can use Conditional Formatting to make it work. In Design View,
select the combo box and fro...AfterUpdate Question!

Although I present a combobox, limited to the choices to pick out, people

I need to flash an "RE-ORDER ALERT" message after inventory level falls below
re-order level. The message only flashes up when I move to a next record
and back after a DoCmd.Save.
I need the message to flash immediate after a Save.
Note. The message is a flashing label on the form.
Perhaps you could code it to actually flash before DoCmd.Save is processed.
Once you're into that code string, it will be run.
Or, maybe consider a Message Box. I like this idea because it forces the
user to interact with the reorder message. No one can say "I didn'...AfterUpdate VB If statement
I am having a problem with this code:

On some form I have several unbound combobox controls. Whenever some of them
is changed, I want:
1. reset the values for other combos on same form;
2. reset Filter and FilterOn properties for subform on same form;
3. reset Rowsource for a record locating combobox on this subform.
Currently I use combo's AfterUpdate's events for this - like here:
Private Sub Combo1_AfterUpdate()
Me.Combo2 = 0
Me.Combo3 = 0
If Nz(Me.Combo1, 0) = 0 Then
Me.MySubform.Form.Filter = ""
Me.MySubform.Form.FilterOn = False
I'm having a problem with Requery. I have 7 combo boxes that are cascading.
One gets it's data from the previous one. The first three requery and blank
out the combo boxes if the item that was selected isn't in the new list.
Although the last four do requery and get a new list, they keep the previous
selected text even if it isn't in the new list. I set the Limit To List
option but that didn't have an effect on the last four combo boxes. I posted
the different ways I've tried requerying below. The only one that seems to
remove the data is DoCmd.Requery but on...blinking form afterupdate

I hope to hear from you !
Best regards and thanks in advance,
This code requeries the form and displays any changes to the data.
Where are you using that code - is it on a button or some other event?

I've been having this problem for a few months with a db I'm working on. I
know there must be something simple I'm overlooking, so I'd greatly
appreciate any help in identifying what the problem is.
I'm using the following to create a timestamp:
Me.dbLastUpdateUser = Forms!frmUserInfoHIDDEN!txtUserName
Me.dbLastUpdate = Now()
frmuserInfoHIDDEN refers to a form that is hidden on startup that stores the
name the user logged in with. This feature works fine.
The AfterUpdate timestamp used to work as well. However, now it repeatedly

If you are talking about TimeStamping a record that was updated on a form
then you want your code in the BeforeUpdate event of the form. In this case
you do not need SQL but simply:

I have this code for the afterupdate event on a text box that has data in it.
Me.Text732 = Replace(Abs(Val([Text732])), ".", "")
When I past this data 0000272400123456 into the text box, it gets rid of the
0000, becomes 272400123456
But if I past this kind of number 4223697600059898, it turns it into this
If I take the coding away and past the 4223697600059898 number, it stays the
same and doesn't get changed to the +15.

I have a form which opens up a subform. On subform, there is a tab control
which has five tabs on it. Each tab contains a sub-form on it. I have a combo
box on one of these sub-forms to which I am attempting to add in
functionality to implement a recent entries list. I have the following code
added to this sub-form's control's AfterUpdate event. However, this event
does not fire after the field is updated. I have verified this by inserting
breakpoints in the code, and the breakpoint never fires either.
Any idea why the AfterUpdate event is not firing? Any input would be great.

I am using the following code to disable the date field if the yes/no box is
null or false:
Private Sub Combo33_AfterUpdate()
Me.Ctl1st_Date.Enabled = Nz(Me.Combo33, False)
Me.Most_Recent_Date.Enabled = Nz(Me.Combo33, False)
What can i place in this code so that it also deletes whatever date was in
this field if it is selected as N or False? Any help is appreciated. Do I
also need to place this in the beforeupdate of the form?
Nevermind I just added:
If Me.Combo33 = False Then
Me.Ctl1st_Date = Null
Me.Most_Recent_Date = Null
And it works fine
...Listbox will not Requery AfterUpdate
I am running Access 2007. I have two listboxes sitting side by side on the

I had this working once where you could click the category in the first box
and it would filter the second listbox to the phone number in a different

the second box would only show numbers of family or category you selected in
the first box.
Now, the boxes work perfectly fine as far ...Date picker and afterupdate event
I have many date controls on different forms in different Access 2007 projects.
At least 2 of them have afterupdate events and it seems as if Access now
triggers an afterupdate event when the date control is entered/receives
focus. If you examine the date in the event sub you find that the oldvalue
and value properties are identical.
I can write code to get around this problem but I think this is an access
bug associated with date picker. I'm pretty sure there is another bug
associated with the date picker too, but a previous post regarding that fault
did not get any replies.
