Merging List w/ a Form
Can anyone assist me with merging a form created in Excel
with a database (or list) also created in Excel? I know
how to merge an Excel worksheet to be used as a database
for Word in the Mail Merge command, but my FORM, with
which I am trying to merge my database, was created in
Excel and needs to remain under its format (not be
converted to Word). I am filtering the information I need
from the database to be imported to the Excel Form.
Any help would be appreciated. Thank-you.
If you're trying to display information from one record in the database,
there are sample files here...scripting adding obj-users and mdb-use-defaults to exchange 5.5 users
I have successfully created a script for creating exchange 5.5 users. I
can't however, figure out how to add the assoc-nt-account to the obj-users
[pseudo attribute] or set MDB-Use-Defaults to True :-(
Can anyone offer advice on how to do this [other than generate a CSV file
and use the exchange admin tool to import it]?
...Filter Report by Form
I'm using the following code from the wonderful Allen Browne which
works perfectly in an either or scenario (either by Start/End Date(s)
OR filtering by client name; but I don't know what syntax to use to
filter by Start/End date(s) AND anything typed in the client name
field. I'm sure it's easy but I can't get my head around it. I
appreciate any and all assistance!!

I am busy working on a stock control database (and job control).
When I have a Form Open, it shows several fields, including JobID (Which is

I have a report based on that query. (rpt_CustJobsInvStock)

Is there any easy way to center access 2007 forms in the middle of the
screen (Monitor) or access main window.
and give me good result
I think there is no built in feature to achieve this goal. You may need to
create a new form and configure it as the main window. You could enumerate
forms and create buttons etc to open forms from this main form. For
example, you could use hte following code enumerate forms in your database:
Dim db As Database
Set db = CurrentDb
Set cntContainer = db.Containers("Forms")
For Each doc In cntContainer.Documents
When a user enters data into a cell, he has to tab out of
it before he can push the "calculate" button. Is there any
way to change this so that the calculation can be
performed while the cell is still selected? I appreciate
Change Tools>Options>Edit>Move selection after enter, and use Enter to
complete entry rather than Tab. This prevents the selection from moving to
Note that calculation can never be done while the cell is being edited.

In building a form to allow users to print a "blank form"
I've constructed as an Access Report, I'd like the user to
be able to select the number of copies to print.
It looks like the PrintOut Method would be a good choice for
this, but I'm not smart enough to know quite how to get the
"Copies" argument to get its input from the textbox on my
form, where the user will enter the number of copies they'd
like to print.
Does the report have a record source?

...CSV, Milliseconds default formatting of mm:ss.0
When I generate some CSV files I need to include milliseconds. When anyone
opens the file in Excel (in my case part of Office 2003, SP2) the datetimes
appear with a default formatting of mm:ss.0. This is frustrating and appears
unprofessional on my part when clients open the file. They assume I have
made some sort of mistake.
I have already thought of generating using
=DATE(blah)+TIME(blah)+millis/(24*60*60*1000) but I don't like the idea.
How can I change the default format so that it would be something more
sensible and my clients and I could avoid the drudgery of clicking on the...Changing Default Contacts List for E-mail

I am trying to “Condition Format” a column on my form so it will highlight
the individual cell if another cell in the same column has the same value.
The form is in Datasheet view and it can not be changed from that due to the
way I built the database.
I have tried to build the condition format like so,
Condition1 “Field Value Is” “equal to” [Column Name]
and all it dose is it highlight the cell in the column when I input a record
into it, regardless if it is a duplicate or not.
Is there a way to accomplish this?

I have two forms with seemingly identical date fields. In one, if I place my

I have thoroughly looked through the properties of each field and each form
