subforms 02-26-08

I have a tab page with two subforms in it.  When I tab to the last combo box 
in the first subform it does not tab to the first text box of the second 
subform.  How would I do that?  Thanks in advance.

In the Lost Focus event of the last text box on the first subform put:


Where YourSecondSubformContainerName is the name of the control on the main 
form that houses the second subform (not necessarily the subform name).  It 
is possible that the container name is the same as the subform name, but it 
isn't necessarily so.  So you have to use the container name.  

And YourFirstTextBoxName is the name of the text box on the second subform 
that you want to get the focus.

Apply Rule 02-07-06
The Apply Rule menu option is available in the More Actions menu. Is there an easy way to add this as a button (e.g. next to the "Merge..." button)? My guess is that this can be done using the ISV.config file - however I need the url to call this menu option (e.g. something like /_grid/cmds/dlg_applyrule.aspx iObjType=1...). Any one know what the magic formula is? By the way, this has a practical use beyond just making "one less click" for the users. That is, there are some screens where the Apply Rule option does not appear (e.g. custom entities) and I assume that this s...

Outlook '02 not leaving messages on server when told to
Outlook will not save the settings that tell it to leave the messages on the server. When I choose this option it works until I close outlook. When I have reopened outlook and go to the settings location to leave messages on server, it is not chosen. I have chosen this setting before and it was working. I have had problems with this on one of my computers for quite some time, but only noticed it on this one since SP2 was installed. I have applied the setting and said OK to each possible menu when exiting from this option menu. I have tried exiting outlook from the file menu, rather tha...

combining fields 12-08-09
I have a report that groups three fields together, 'conveyor type', 'conveyor name' and 'maint. records'. There are multiple 'conveyor names' and 'maint. records'for each 'conveyor type'. I have managed to group everything together that is repetitive (a lot of the 'maint. records are the same). So i have a report that has a 'conveyor type' heading with all the 'maint records' underneath very nicely. However I wish to list the 'conveyor names' side by side next to the 'conveyor type'heading.

Convert Text to Date 02-12-10
I have a text field with date like data in it but its text data. THe field [End_date] looks like 31Dec2009 - how can i reformat that so its a recognized date field that I can do calculations on?

URGENT: Query by Form, display in subform, link to / generate repo
I have developed a query and a form that will provide the parameters for that query. My challenge is that I want the results of the query to display in a subform below the search text box(es). Then I would like to have 2nd subform that provides links based on the value of one field to determine which reports may be selected. While I'm not new to Access, I'm still very new to VBA and want to know if this is possible. If possible, how to get it to work. This is pretty urgent as I have two different projects that will use this process. Thanks in advance for the help ... B...

subform refresh 02-29-08
I'm working with a form that has a subform on a subform. When I select from the dropdown on the main form, the subform refreshes based on the after update event of the combo box, but the subform that is on it doesn't refresh. How can I get it to refresh at the same time? Thanks, Mary Mary, When linked to the mainform by for eample an id field the subform should refresh autom. If not linked you could place the following in the afterupdate of the combo: me.subform.requery (where subform should be the name of your subform). hth -- Maurice Ausum "Mary" wrote: >...

accessing the value of the link child in a subform
Hi, Application is a simple (!) instructor scheduling app. I have a form which is designed to allow me to select which instructors are qualified to teach which courses. I have three tables. One with all the instructors, one with all the courses and then a link table. Ok, on my main form, I can select an instructor and then on a sub-form I get a list of the courses that instructor can teach. Each record in the subform is represented by a listbox to allow the course to be selected. The problem is that all the courses are selectable in each record's list, whereas I only ...

CRM with SBS 2003 12-08-03
IS crm 1.2 out yet? i have a new sbs 2003 installation on a single server (obviously).
