Can't have a null value if another field has text.
I have tried a few different things to try and get this to work, but I
can't seem to figure it out. Basically, I have a form with some text
boxes linked to fields on a table, and I want one of two things to
happen (the first one would be preferred, but if that's not possible,
the second would be just as good):
1) If Field 1 is updated to a Null value and Field 2 has text in it,
move the text from Field 2 to Field 1 and change Field 2 to a Null
2) If Field 1 is updated to a Null value and Field 2 has text in it, a
message box pops up that essentially says "You can't do ...VBA Text Color
I would like to change the text color to Red for a string being returned to a
window through vba when certain conditions are met.
I can see the vbRed control but cannot get it to work, Object Required.
Has anyone been able to change the text color through vba, and how is it set?
I don't believe VBA can directly change the colours on a Dexterity field or
window. You can use the unsupported but very useful method of pass through
Dexterity SanScript to change the colour of the text or the background.
I think you already have the company background colour VBA example. I...Change link between form and subform

...email text missing when sent
I compose an email within Outlook and send it. The sent
email only contains the first character of the text. The
recipient of the email does receive it, but with only the
one character in the text. When I look at the copy of the
email in my Sent folder, the text only has one character.
I repeated the process several times with the same result.
The above was done with my Options set to Rich Text. When
I change my Options to use HTML, everything is sent fine.
This problem just occurred yesterday. I've been sending

Formulas continue to appear as text and will not calculate. how to get

If your formulas appear as text, then you need to first clear the cells
before entering formulas. Select the cells, hit Edit-->Clear-->All. Save the
file, format the column as General, and try again.

I have a continuous form bound to a table containing names, addresses and

area identified by the associated post code. On GotFocus, the combo box runs
a selection query taking the associated post code as the criterion. A

Thanks for any help.
Select the chart, press the equal key, then select the cell with a
mouse. This adds a text box in the middle of the chart, which you can
move around and format as needed.

I am trying to change a field in an ACCESS table and get an error message

googling for some answers, I think I should be able to find out the link

When doing a Find/Replace on a certain word that needs to have a different
colour than default - say, red - Excel incorrectly colours the whole cell
instead of just the word that was searched on.
To see this in action, try this:
1.. Open up a blank Excel sheet
2.. Enter some text in a few cells - "This is a test", for instance. Now,
let's try to use search/replace to colour only the word "test" in red.
3.. Open up Search/Replace
