Showing specific data
In A2003 I was able to put a command button on a form that when clicked would
display another form which would contain specific data; i.e. a form of
employees would then disaplay their absences. I built the button through the
wizard and selected the "open form and find specific data to display". This
works fin e in A2003, but when I build it ion A2007, the resulting form
displays all my data, but says it's filtered. Can I see just what I want to

...building form @ runtime vs. hiding existing controls
I'm trying to decide just how bad runtime design is. Most opinions seem to
steer clear of adding controls, events, etc at runtime. Instead, y'all
advocate keeping controls on the form and hiding them as necessary.
In my application (which will not be an MDE) , each user session builds a
new form - from scratch. Once the form is built, there are no design
changes. And when the user is done the form object is deleted.
Troubleshooting may be more difficult with a form that only exists at
runtime. OTOH, documenting and tracking unused controls (or not having
enough controls, ...Count unique values

I am looking for a method to hook the keyboard without running a
background process. I know there are APIs for hooking
(SetWindowsHookEx), but I want to avoid the overhead of running another
background process for this and make the task do by windows itself.
I am thinking of tweaking the Accessibility option in windows for this.
Can we anyway do this by writing any script or modifying or adding
registry entries for Accessibility? Or is there any Accessibility
specific APIs which can re-program the Accessibility feature to do our
tasks when we press a key with Accessibility feature-on.
An...Locking cell color while allowing data changes in cell
In excel 2000, I created an attendance worksheet for my
classes.(Alphabetized names down left vertical column. Dates across
top of horizontal row.) I added a different color to all cells in
every other row to make for easier reading of each student's name and
absences. Every other row stays with a white background.
My question: I wondered if it was possible to lock row colors while
allowing data to change on top of them. If a new student is added to
my class in alphabetical order, the alternating color pattern is often
lost. It is a pain to rechange row and cell colors.

So, this is probably really easy, but I just want to ask and see if I may be
missing something here. Some data on vendor numbers changed. Let’s say IBM
used to have a vendor number 12345 and now it’s vendor number is 56789. I
can identify IBM as IBM, but I really want to use the number, not the name.
Should I set up a table that ties the numbers together, so that Access knows
12345 = 56789? Or, should I do some kind of Update Query and change all
incidences of 12345 to be 56789? Or, is there some other, method, like a

Hi. I am new to your form and am struggling with the Multiple Item Forms. I
want a combo box on the top that will select an id number from a table called

a new group of records should be displayed in the form.
I know how to initiate a change in one combo box based on another combo box
(i.e. Row Source), but I cannot find a similar property for the multiple item
forms. Please help.
