Max Limit for Values in List Boxes and Combo Boxes in Outlook forms
Folks, a user is setting up a form. She wants to have several combo
boxes and list boxes with between 75 and 300 (yes, 300 -- that's not a
typo!) possible values in the combo box or list box. Before she starts
work on this, she would like to know if there is a limit on the number
of possible values for a combo box or a multi-select list box.
Is there a limit? Is it defined by the number of characters in the
values box, or the number of actual values? What is the limit? Any help
here would be appreciated. Thanks.
...Stop advancing in form with the "next" arrow at end of "list"
I have an editable form for users where they can query by date, etc.
However, the next entry arrow allows them to advance beyond the result. For
example, if their query resulted in 1 of 4, they can still click to 5, 6, and
so on which only adds blank lines to the database table. How do I set this
to stop at the last entry of their original query?
You can cancel adding new records like this:
Private Sub Form_BeforeInsert(Cancel As Integer)
Cancel = True

I have a field named Field213 that holds (CASETYPE) from the database. When
I open the form, I want it to look at that field and make field163 visible
depending on what it stored in Field213. Right now it only becomes visible
if I manually change what is in field213, then field163 becomes visible. I
should mention that I have field163 as visible no and display always, the
same as field PBISUB, Field382 and Field163. Probably something simple, but
I can't seem to see it right now.

I thought I read somewhere that Access 2007 had a new function, or
something, enabling you to have forms automatically resize to fit the screen
resolution of the user. Is this correct, or am I wrong? If I am correct, how
do you use this feature?

Hi to all,
I wnat to ask about Manager Assist, that is used to manage the calls on the
service call module...... is it a GP module or it is a separate software
thank you in advance,
ManageAssist is a seperate VB application that connects to the GP Field
Service tables. It allows for both viewing of schedule calls as well as

Do you use the others as well? Editing the list will remove them from the

The general concept of tables is that they are for storage of data in
the background. They are not for display of data. That is what forms
and reports are for. Therefore, the appearance of the data in the
tables is not normally relevant, and the display of calculated values is

Thanks for any help.
I have a query from a couple tables, and one of the field names in the table

IGP: iif(blah IGP blah)
which gives me a circular error.
The table is used by a bunch of other things, so I don't want to change the
field name there, and the field name for the output is used by a bunch of
things, so nor do I want to change the name there. I am using Access 2007. I

I entered an Intercompany AP invoice. I distributed as follows:

different account for the Destination Company entry. It is an account in my

But when I post it, the General Ledger posting journal looks good.

Using the Modifier you can make the field visible, add it to VBA and then

You need to do the calculation at a level at least 1 level below what

Why do you not want to use subforms? Unless you can join the tables in such
a way that the resultant query is updatable (usually a challenge), subforms
are the easiest approach.
