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!

I can use your help in getting the cursor back to a control on a continuous
Subform. The sub has two controls, Inv# and Amount. I use the AfterUpdate
on the Amount control to test whether the payment amount equals the invoice
amount. If the two are not the same, I prompt the user and would like to
return the cursor to the Amount control on the last line in this multi-line

Hello all, I have a problem with updating on my form.
I have a form, TrainingHistory, that is linked to a table by the same
name. There are three fields showing: FullName, ClassName, and
DateTaken. For each person, I am only interested in the MOST RECENT
date they took any given class. So what I want is to be able to enter
a name and class, and have Access check the table for this combination
of name and class. If such an entry already does exist, I would like
the form to bring up that entry, and that entry alone, for editing of
the date. There should also be a message explaining what ju...BeforeUpdate or AfterUpdate ?

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

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

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'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

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

I've been having this problem for a few months with a db I'm working on. I

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.

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 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?

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.
