How to set a form in dialog mode??
I have a form that shows a combo box.
This form is launched by a piece of code from another form.
The VBA code needs to wait that the form has closed befor continuing,
having catch the user selection.
I know how to open the form in dialog mode, using docmd.OpenForm,
However I start the form by instanciating a form object, like:
Dim frm As Form_myForm
Set frm As new Form_myForm
How can I set the form in dialog mode, so that the code waits until
the form closes?
can't you put the part of the code that needs to wait in the on close event

I'm getting ready, for the first time, to use CEvent and
WaitForSingleObject, particularly with my audio. Nevertheless, I thought
I'd fish for a comment or two on the use of timers. At this point, I have
some pretty nice things going on, based on timers and pretty much the same
code I will have when I convert to WaitForSingleObject. My audio is
especially time sensitive, and the timers are so well coordinated and
integrated with the rest of the code that I can't see my program actually
faring any better when I replace them. Should I possibly keep things the
way they are?

I have a table which looks somewhat like this:

| A | Ball | 1.00 |
| A | Cup | 2.00 |

I want these displayed on a form, however, grouped by Type (similar to a
report), for example
Is such a thing possible?
The closest I can get is with multiple labels and conditional formatting.

corresponds to a form based on the results showing on the report.
We are in the process of creating a computer with a kiosk type software
that guests need to sign into.
There will be a form that they need to complete. We need to be able to

visiting and then the form will be emailed to that specific person.
Is there a way to make a form that works with our exchange server so it
searches for a name and then automatically sets the form to email to
Sure. The form would have to look the user up in Active Directory based on
whatever search criteria you have in mind.
MVP...Printing Issues when distributing a form to multiple users
I am distributing a spreadsheet to multiple users. The spreadsheet is
being used as a form for data entry.
The problem i am having is that when it is being printed, the users
are getting varying page layouts where the page breaks have changed,
due the changes to the length of the document growing from the free
text they are entering. The page breaks that excel chooses don't seem
to be spaced well, leading to one or two of the pages being very short
(i.e., leaving a lot of free white space), whereas the other pages are
taking up the entire page.
Is there a particular page layout selection...Update Queries don't work in form
I have a form with queries that update several fields to null.

Now I go to run a query I get the message "Operation must use an Updateable

I have full control permissions for both.
I even created a new Update Query and it doesn't work.
Anyon...Quick Create Forms
I am fairly new to MSCRM. We have modified the lead form but this does not
appear to modify the Quick Create Lead form. Is this by design?. Can the
Quick Create Forms be modified...if not can the Quick Create dropdown list be
turned off so that staff only use the modified forms?
The quick create does only show required fields. That means that if you
modify the form to have more required fields, then these fields will be
visible as well. You can set this option at the properties screen while
modifying the form.
With kind regards,

> ...Timer Count Down
Is there a way of placing a timer on a form that, when the start button is
clicked it will start counting down from a specified time?
Say I click the button and it starts to count down, I want the timer
displayed to show people how much time is left to bid on an item. This way,
when everyone opens the database it will always show the current countdown
time and not refresh itself. Say a count down time of 2 days?
Is this possible?

...how do you keep a column in date form
i'm making a spreedsheet in office excel, in column A I have a list of dates.
I would type in 4/5 for an date and excel would automatic change the date to
4-Apr. I like this way, but when I got to cell 26, the change will not
happen. I type in 4/5 and I get just the number 1 in the cell, for the rest
of the cells down, can someone help me.
Copy the cell that has the format you like and paste format it to the cells
that you want to have the date format.

I smxlsx but an error message comes up requiring I save with a format

and errors out before it is saved. Any ideas how I can save this as a
smaller file since I need to have several users on a shared network access
the file without it locking up their systems.
