Listbox selection, unselected when opening Internet Explorer (NO S
Yes I know it's a very odd questions but I have a list box on a form in
Access 2002 and when the form is opened the list box is populated with
worksheet names from a selected default workbook. When I select the
worksheets names that I want to update, (usually all of them), the selection
shows all items selected, now when I open up a new session of Internet
Explorer (version 6.0,2900,2180 and no I can't upgrade any software, it's on
a work machine.) the list box is updated (but doesn't trigger the afterupdate
event, odd!) and no items are selected. I've eve...Fields in Main Form to Populate Records in Child Form
I am working with a local non-profit that works with Seniors and am trying to
revamp their database. I have created several tabs for each type of event
the volunteers or receipients may particiapte in (Education, Travel,
Donations, Committees, Teacher, etc.). I want to be able to create the input
in the main form where they can input there, click ADD and have it populate
the child form that is in a datasheet view. I want to make the child form
read-only so the volunteers that input the data can't accidentally overwrite
any existing data.
My thought was to create a "...ListBox (maybe?) ... If so, how?
Excel 2000 ... Earlier today I saw a spread sheet that
had what appeared to be a Filter Switch in a Cell.
When cell with switch selected ... switch listed 2 values
to choose from (Y or N) ... In addition, as different
cells (requiring same Y or N value) were selected the
switch moved to selected cell.
Above said ... how is this all accomplished as I wish to
replicate this capability on another spread sheet?
Thanks ... Kha
What you describe sounds like Data Validation. Check out "Designate valid

"Ken" <anonymous@discu...? Embedding [ListBox/Edit] Controls in a List Control
I need a way of putting List/Combo boxes as well as edit controls in a
CListCtrl. I do not need them all to be visible at the same time, rather, I
need the list control to display regular text in all the cells normally, but
when an item is selected to show the listbox/edit control in the cell.
I've looked around for a good implementation but cannot find any really
good ones; the best one was XListCtrl on CodeProject, but that does manual
drawing of the listbox which is not the best thing, and it does not support
edit controls. Does anyone know what the best-fastest, mos...Validation and subforms
I have a form with a subform. I am using validation in the form's Before

allow the user to click into the subform without producing a message that a
required field is missing a value? The logical flow of things is to select
the subform values fairly early in the process of entering a record, rather
than after everything else is complete, which is why h...HELP with Subform Coding

news:81271...Listbox contents do not show..
Hi (Access 2003..),
I have an unbound listbox I use to get some info from a user (by merely

There's an "after update" event for this box where I gather and analysze

So far so good.
I've recently added some code that sometimes issues a warning message (based

Any ideas on how to do it?
