How To Talk Dirty
Really cool to learn, but it's true for all dudes. 'How To Talk Dirty'
...What's the trick
I've tried everything I can think of to open a form from another form and
apply a filter with no luck. I'm using Access XP and have tried the
following from my main form:
Dim stDocName As String
Dim stLinkCriteria As String
stDocName = "frmPhotos"
stLinkCriteria = "VisitID = " & Form_frmVisit!VisitID
DoCmd.OpenForm stDocName , , , stLinkCriteria
I have also tried the following in this same routine:
Form_frmPhotos.Filter = stLinkCriteria
Form_frmPhotos.FilterOn = True
There are three records in the backend database (sql server ...Me.Dirty
Here is the setup of this monster database that we're using. We have an
Access frontend with SQL server backend. We have about 14 tables that all
link to one main table via main table's PK. To present this data, we have
forms that have 14 sub-forms on them (long story, but in order to get what we
needed, this was how we got it to work). We have the SQL server residing on
one server and then six laptops connect to that server via wireless router
(again, due to the mobility of the laptops, it has to be wireless). So at
one time, there are six users entering data, but never ...Form Dirty Property
I am having difficulty in exploiting the ‘On Dirty’ property of forms.
Sometimes it works as expected but, more often than not, changes to controls
bound to table fields fail to trigger the On Dirty event. I am then forced
to associate each amendable control with an After Update event. That
invariably works but, with a dozen or more amendable controls on a form, the
resulting code can look pretty clumsy. There is something that I have
clearly not understood. Can anyone enlighten me? I just want to take
appropriate action when any control on a form is updated or amended.

When I rebooted my computer (WinXP SP3) I got a bizarre message saying that
"The volume is dirty," apparently in reference to my external hard drive.
What the $%^& does this mean? And more particularly, must I do something
about whatever is "dirty" about that drive? When I did a google search I
found a reference to "setting the dirty bit," terminology which, I must
admit, seems to have more to do with connubial delights than with my
computer. of course, I also found ads hawking software which assuredly

What is important is that you have a block with three columns

Now, sort the first block (the three col wide block) on the second

I have an Excel 97 spreadsheet that has a column of sizes. If I enter a
size range like 38 - 32, I have no problem. But when I enter 4 - 8, Excel
insists on interpreting that as 8-Apr. If I look at the format setting for
the cell, I find it has changed to Date format. If I change the format back
to General, I get the serial code for April 8th. Anyone know how to
override this? Thanks in advance.

I have an unbound listbox (multiselect) on a bound form.
The listbox and its selection are populated via vba from a table.
I have an invisible helper txt field which is bound to a table.
The helper txt receives whatever is selected in the listbox by setting
its value property to the list box elements.
Unfortunately this does not make the form dirty. Apparently changing
the value property of a txt field does not trigger the dirty event but
only changing the text property of a text field does.
I can not set the text value of my little helper txt field because it

I've discovered that I have a bad database file for my exchange that is in a
dirty shutodwn state.
Most likely, my priv1.edb is all wacko - which of course, has caused my
exchange email to pretty much shut down and will not let me mount the mailbox
Anyhow...I've been attempting to run the eseutil /r <log file name> command
and it's not working because of a dirty shutdown.
I found the database was in a dirty shutdown (vs. a clean shutdown) because
I ran the eseutil /k priv1.edb and it told me.
Here's a little nibble from the results:
I am using a form that is unbound and know I cannot use the Dirty event.
What can I use in its place?
I guess I could use the AfterUpdate event however, there are a lot of
controls on the forms. I think what I could do is to open the form in a
state where a user cannot change control values but, must click an edit
button that will change the form to allow edits. User makes changes, update
button becomes visible, then is forced to save updates. Update made, button
hides, form clears.
I am just thinking out loud.

Hi and TIA. I have a form in Single form view. Once the user changes a

fire. Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks!
