Record Selection

I am working with a part number that is 10-11 alpha numeric characters.  I 
need to focus on the 8th character which represents the color of the item and 
make a selection as to the color.

I started looking at the "Like" function, but couldn't figure out how to 
have it look at the 8th character only.

I am using Access 2000.

Any help would be appreciated.

ColorChar:InStr([PartNumber],8)

will return the 8th character.

A couple of ways. 

Mid([partnumber], 8, 1)

will return the 8th character from the string; or you can in fact use Like:

LIKE "???????" & [Enter color code:] & "*"

will prompt for a one-character color and find records containing that value
as the 8th byte.

How do I trigger an event on opening a record
I have an Access 2003 form where I would like to take an action (e.g. via an event procedure or macro) whwnever the user opens a record for editing (e.g. via the arrowed record selector buttons). Effectively what I want is something like an On Enter or On Open control but relating to a whole record. It seems that such a control is only available for (e.g.) a text box, which relates to a single field in a record. I thought there would be something in the Detail section of the form as I thought that section related to whole records (?) but there isn't such a control there. Any idea...

Control the number of records shown in a report/subreport.
I've posted this question before and when I follow the advice, I keep getting a circular reference error. So I'm hoping that if I post some more info, I may get insight as to what is going wrong. I have a report (BartS1report) it uses a query (BartS1Report). This report as a subreport (BartS1Sub2) that uses the query (BartS1). The report lists the customer name, address, and systems serviced. The subreport lists the systems serviced. The reports are connected through the Master/Child links Customer ID and the ServiceAddress. When there are more than 20 systems per ...

Selecting CListCtrl row with keyboard on sub item
Hi, I've been googling for this, since I'm sure people have done this before, but apparently I did not manage yet to compose the right search string for it! When you have list control, you can jump to a certain item by starting to type on the keyboard from the start of the string, as many characters until you have given enough detail to have jumped to the item that you were looking for. This is a nice feature, but now I want it to work alike for the sub items in my report style list control, when I have my list control sorted on such sub item. Of course I can think of an app...

New Record
I have a form/subform. I have an event that opens a popup. I select from a list on the popup that copies the value onto a txtbox on the Main form and the popup then automatically closes. In the same code I place the focus in the subform to begin adding data to a new record. The problem I 'm having is that when the focus is set in the sub, there are two lines. The top line, which is the one I'm entering data in, does not automatically put the autonumber in for the ID that links the tables, but the record below it does, which is one that I'm not using. When I fill in the...

Accessing current record
What is the syntax for referring to the underlying record that a form is currently displaying? In other words, I would like to make a change to an attribute of a record that is being displayed when a user clicks a button. I believe the best way to do this is through modifying the VB code that underlies the onClick event, but I can't figure out how to reference the record that is being displayed in the current (or active) record. In this case, we're dealing with a boolean value (I realize that I could simply have the checkbox in the form, have the user check or uncheck the box, then s...
