Forms completion

Here is a question for you, we have a pretty simple database to gather 
comments and suggestions from users for improvement on things around our 
office, It is a form entry, a suggestion that was given is when users want to 
enter multiple suggestions they are having to re-enter the header section of 
the form (Basics of name and contact information) repeatedly, is there a code 
or work around where that will replicate for the user if they click the add 
new record after they enter the first entry?

Are you storing this information in every row of the table?
The way it should work is, when the user first logs on it gathers their 
identification data and saves it in a users table. Then it goes to the 
suggestion form and collects suggestions. Only the id of the user should be 
stored with the suggestions not the whole data.

It sounds like you need two tables in a one to many relationship - a header
table, related one to many to a suggestions table. You could use a Form based
on the former with a Subform based on the latter, linked by the unique ID of
the header table.

after crash forms display #NAME?
Hello, I was working on my Db when all of a sudden it crashed. I saved a backup and closed it down. I opened the back up and now on my main " Job Information" form, almost all of my text boxes with equations display "#Name?". Some of the text boxes reference other tables, some other forms, and some the same form they are located on. I checked the data source an a select few boxes and all the data, according to my table, is correct. Its worth noting that the entire DB was working perfectly before this crash.

Outlook Read Email Does Not Run The Form
Hello - I have a custom Email form I have designed with a button on it. However, I notice that when I double click on a form in my inbox the custom form is loaded so that that I can read the Email on the custom form. But, the button won't work unless I then click Form, Run this form. Isn't there a way that I can make the button work automatically when the user reads their Email so that they can just click the button rather than click Tools, Run this form and then click the button. I'm guessing that maybe Microsoft did this so that scripts won't run but I'm wonderi...

Making a list of all persons in a table in a corresponding form.
Hi all, In a database of mine I have a table containing persons' name, address and so on. In the corresponding form I have of course all the fields where the users put in the data. In this form I want to have a list showing all the persons in the table as well, so that the users can click the right person in the list and have his or her data filled into the fields. I have tried to make a table form from the same table and include it as a subform. This, however, was not successful because the subform only showed the person in focus in the form, not all the persons in the table. Also...

Turn on address auto complete?

Change color of forms caption bar
Is there a way to change the color of a forms caption bar without chaning the overall look of Windows? I have a form that I am creating for use on a classified system.

Outlook won't close completely
When I close outlook, it doesn't close completely. Then, when I try to reopen Outlook it won't open. If I look in Task Manager, it will show multiple copies of Outlook open. Some common reasons why Outlook will not shut down completely when you click either the X or Exit: 1. PDA synchronization software with your PDA in the cradle. 2. WinFax Pro (especially 10.02 in Outlook 2003) - contact their support for an alleged fix. 3. Franklin-Cover Plan Plus! 4. COM Add-ins. 5.

MS Access & Citrix
Hi, all. We have a home-grown Access application that approximately 50 users use to access different, but related, databases on different Linux servers across the US. We are trying to combine all these different databases into one database that everyone can access through a Citrix server. In the initial (very) testing phase, we have found some strange problems with our Access app that may be related to the programming within the application or may be related to the Citrix side of things (although when we try to do an analagous task going just through Access itself we don't have the same...

Setting a parent form value based on a subform entry
Hi all, I have a parent/child form setup, where selecting a value from a bound combobox within the subform datasheet should override another bound combobox in the parent. All of the AfterUpdate code worked fine in an Access 2003 MDB format, but when I try the same thing in an Access 2003 ADP project, I get the Jet error 7787 and the changes get flushed when the record gets refreshed. The parent form field isn't 100% dependent on the selection in the subform - it just forces the overwrite to begin with, and then the user is free to change it afterwards. Is there no way...

Resort Order in a Form
What is the best way of reordering records in a form? This would be across multiple columns in the table vs a single column on the form that I could hit the Sort Descending/Ascending button on the main menu. One way is to put sort selection check boxes in the header of your form and have it refresh/requery when a selection is changed. In the query have criteria for the sort selection and your sort field. Create a query for each different sort. Put these in a union query as your source. Only the one that matches your sort criteria selection will output records. -- KARL DEWEY Build a...
