Access2000: BeforeUpdate for TextBox
On a form I have 2 controls, txtHours & txtMinutes. Whenever there is
entered 60 or more minutes into txtMinutes, I want full hours added to
txtHours (or txtHours value replaced, I haven't decided yet), and set
reminder as new value for txtMinutes. Something like:
Private Sub txtMinutes_BeforeUpdate(Cancel As Integer)
If Me.txtMinutes < 60 Then
Me.txtHoues = Me.txtHoues + Int(Me.txtMinutes / 60)
Me.txtMinutes = Me.txtMinutes Mod 60

THE SETUP. (Access 2003)
I have a with several command buttons and a subform.
The subform has several textboxes and a combo box.
The (sub)Form_BeforeUpdate(Cancel As Integer) contains code
to validate the detail record. It handles

* MsgBox accordingly
In addition to using the provided 'Save' button, users are able to
save incomplete/inappropriate detail records by exiting to the main
form (say by clicking cmdPrint or cmdClose). The BeforeUpdate code
doesn't fire and the record isn't validated and the user isn't ...Cancel/BeforeUpdate Event Procedure
I have a main form Containers with a subform ContainerSubstances. The latter
has a combo box showing the substances in the Substances table. If the
desired substance is not in the combo, the user may bring up the Substances
form in Add and Dialog mode. The user can press Save or Cancel from the
latter form, and both work as designed.
If Save is pressed, the combo box on the original subform is requeried to
include the new value, and then the new value is selected by the code, and
the Substances form closes, and the user returns to the Containers form, with
focus set in the ...BeforeUpdate without update?
I have a form which is using Oracle as the datasource = single table
and the controls are mostly bound (2 textboxes are not bound and exist
in order to display names from ids). the form displays only a single
record at a time.
If I make changes to a new record (i.e. fill in the first field) and
attempt to navigate to the next record, the beforeUpdate event fires
and then I get an error saying such and such a field is null and must
be populated first,etc. This works everytime.
My form also has 2 buttons to navigate away from the form (all other
navigation such as closing the form, etc. have b...Not triggering "BeforeUpdate" in text box on UserForm
OK, so I need an education here (and what better place to find one...)
In Excel 97 I have a UserForm with a text box that has VBA code in the
'__BeforeUpdate()' event. The form also has a command button. It
appears that if the user types stuff in the textbox, then immediately
mouse-clicks the command button, the _beforeUpdate() event of the text
box is not triggered. It also appears that the ControlSource range of
the text box is not updated in this circumstance.
The _Change() event is not a particularly good option here, since I
still have to know when the user has fully completed the...How prevent form close when 'BeforeUpdate' cancelled
My form always shows a single record, it has two command buttons Cancel and
Save. When Save is clicked, my BeforeUpdate validations are done and I issue
'Cancel = True', however, the form still closes and the record is saved. What
can I put in my Save button procedure to prevent this? The procedure contains
> The procedure contains DoCmd.Close.
DoCmd.Close doesn't belong in cmdSave_Click. Take it out.
Now then, we know when you *don't* want the form to close. When *do* you
want it to close?

I have a unbound combo box to find a record on a form. it is basically wizard

the combo still displays the Invalid ID giving the impression the correct
record is selected. i tried to add a message box which pops up but the form
maintains the same behavior. After the message box is confirmed i would like
everything to remain on whatever record was previously selected before the

From access 2003 on-line doc abour the BeforeUpdate of a control in a
"If the user enters a new value in the control, the OldValue property
setting isn't changed until the data is saved (the record is updated).
If you cancel an update, the value of the OldValue property replaces the
existing value in the control."
However, in access 2007, If I cancel an update, the value of the
OldValue property doesn't replace the existing value in the control.=>
Is it possible to get the same behaviour (re-changing the value triggers

I have an exit form button where I just want to confirm with the user if they
want to save or not, if they don’t it closes the form, but if they do it

with a simple BeforeUpdate event programmed on the form:

When adding a new record do both get fired?
I need to set a date when a status field gets changed, so I need to set it
in initial insert and also when updating an exisitng record; currently I have

If Me!StatusID <> Me!StatusID.OldValue Then
Me!StatusDate = Now()
Is this sufficient? Thanks.
Yes, both events fire for new records, in this order:

I have a form bound to a client list that shows client status and the

BeforeUpdate event of the [status] field that, when the client status is
changed from "active" to "inactive" prompts the user for confirmation, and
with an affirmative response calls a module procedure that updates records in
two other tables, as well as removing the salesperson [assignment] in the

How do I set a combobox to a previous value? When finished updating a
particular record the user selects an identifer in a combobox to advance to
the next desired record. I use the BeforeUpdate event of the combobox to ask
a yes/no question. If NO I want to stay with the current record and this
works. the problem is that the combobox has been advanced to the new
selection and stays there. Now I have the identifer for one record in the
combo box but the form is still (as it should be) on the current record.

I have a form in Access 2003 linked to a SQL Server 2005 table. When
I clear the value in a textbox (bound field is varchar and is
required), I want the before update event to run to tell the user the
value cannot be null.
When I press the tab button to move to the next field after clearing
the texbox, the before update event is not triggering and instead I'm
getting the following error:
You tried to assign the Null value to a variable that is not a Variant
data type. (Error 3162)
How can I prevent nulls before and this error from triggering?
