OnLoad form position
While using CRM, I have created a number of custom entities. I know how to
set the size using an onLoad script, but is there any way to move the for so
that it opens and the user can see everything on the page, rather than
opening so that half of the form is off-screen?
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

I'm wondering is it possible to have mail in a public folder be

forms? If so what tools do I need to consider?

That's not going to work.

Is there any way to add additional fields to the Item Properties page in RMS?
I have used QSRules to modify the POS Screen in the past but don't see any
way to modify any of the forms from within Manager. I would like to either
add more fields or pop a custom form after tabbing off the Item Lookup Code
Nope, no way to modify the built in forms. You can replace them, as
several existing add-ins do. You can also use the ItemSave hook to pop
your form after the OK button on Item Properties is clicked. That's the
most granular activation that's available.

I have what I hope is a easy situation. I have a table that has information

query for that specific completion date so I can have the query results
exported to Excel.
Would I use an unbound text box on the form? How would I set up the query to
take the date entered in the form?

Not all forms of payment are alike. Credit cards have a commision the bank
charges for us to accept it, credit has a risk implicit.
It would be very valuable for Retailers if a discount on the sale could be
associated to one or more forms of payment. I.e. if the customer pays in
cash he or she would be eligible for a special discount, because those forms
of payment does not cost the retailer any extra risk or commision.
This could be an advantage for those customers paying in that particular
form and could be used to attract this kind of consumers.

you can use a DLookup() function to retrieve the queries' values. read up on

I have a table containing two fields - Employee_ID and Time_Stamp.
I've already created a form that scans in Employee_IDs; and once any
Employee_ID is scanned in, the ID and scanned time is recorded to the table.
In addition to what it already does, the form needs to populate the
employee's punch time records for the current week.
For example: (current date and time is Wednesday 9:02 am)
(Form view before update)
Employee ID: ___________________

The report has a text control that has an IIF statement that looks at a
particular field on Form 1 and populates itself based on what is on that
Now I need this same report to run from another form and populate the same
text control with data from a control on Form 2.
Only 1 form is open at any given time. With the report control set to Form
1, it displays #Name? when it is run from Form 2. Is there a way to check for
#Name? and use the control in Form 2 if it occurs?
If not, is there another workaround?

If you set the form's property to add new records, and add a <Save> command
button, you should get "a new blank form". If you're asking how to have it
happen without the <Save> button, how will Access "know" when you're
finished entering data?
