Access database

Question: Access database

I am trying to produce an access database for client names and addresses to be entered using a form but I want the establishment address to be automatically completed if the establishment name when entered is in an existing table of names and addresses. I want to store the address in the new client database table and be able to add a new address if the establishment name does not already exist.

I have tried various ways of doing this including dlookup, and on afterevent with no success. It seems a very logical thing to do but I cannot get Access to do it. I would be grateful for any help.

Many thanks

Here's the question- how do I open a form in an existing database from another db in Access 2010 using VBA and give it focus. I can open the external db and it's form but cannot figure how to give it focus. I'm trying to create a master form that will call various databases that each have a form. Seems simple, open the master menu, click on a button that then opens the called db and the associated form. Do my business exit the db and am back at the master form. I would be okay to just close the master db, all it has it the main menu or leave it open. Doesn't matter which I just want to open the called db and form and have its focus.

Hi,
I don't support Access, nor have I been trained in it, but I've been asked if I can help in this problem.
An Access database connects externally to a SQLServer database at login time for the application. How do I find which external database they are connecting to? I know that there is a way to go behind the forms to see the source code, but I cant remember how to do this.
I cannot find an obvious User/System file dsn on the PC to give me a clue.
Thanks in advance

I have on a Laptop, an Access 2013 program feeding an accdb database. I want to move subject database or a copy of the accdb database to a new PC with Access 2013 installed. Both computers are running on Windows 10. I considered copying the laptop database to my Kingston Data Traveler but I can't even find the directory where the database should be.

The only other thing to add Is that I programmed the record input software using Access 2003 and copied it onto my laptop with Access 2013 installed and which works fine. Later, I saved the MDB database into the Accdb format (Access 7).

According to what I've read, Access 2010 uses the same database format as Access 2007. So this should mean I can open and run a 2007 database (with a lot of VBA code) in Access 2010 with no trouble, yes?

So why do I have the feeling that something is not going to work? Is it because I have been through to many Access upgrades?

Answer:Any problems using Access 2007 database with Access 2010?

Hello All,
Our company had a photo booth with an F-35 fighter jet at a recent technology show. Individuals were allowed to have there pic taken in front of the aircraft with a pretty model. Now I have over 2500 pictures and over 2500 individuals that need their pic emailed to them. I have an Access database with a name, email address and a picture. Each name has a different image. How can I automatically send each person their picture through Outlook? I would like it to automatically populate a new email with the address and corresponding pic then have it be sent on its way while I am home sleeping. Can this be done?

Hi everybody! I have a problem with my MS Access and can’t use the wizard for creating database objects (forms, report, table, queries, etc). Whenever I choose Wizard option to create those database objects, I get the following error message:

Microsoft Access can’t find the wizard, or there is syntax error in the Declaration section of a Visual Basic module.​
The wizard you need may be missing from the libraries key of the Microsoft Access section of the Windows Registry.
To make sure that the wizard is in the Windows Registry, run Setup to reinstall Microsoft Access, and the compile all Visual Basic modules in the database.​
I reinstalled the MS Access as instructed in the message, but I don’t know where to find and compile those Visual Basic modules. I also don’t know how to get to libraries key of the Microsoft Access section of the Windows Registry.

I tried to reinstall the software by using two different versions of software CDs (MS Office 2000 and XP) and both failed to solve the problem. I also tried unsuccessfully to access Add-Ins feature from the Tools menu in order to add the missing component. Please help me!

Ok I have one more question-a few people have other versions of Access in my program and need to use the database that I created in Access 97. A few people tried and couldn't open it. Is there an easy way to converting this so they can use it on their computers? Thanks for the help.
 

Answer:Access 97 database in Access 2000?

Access should prompt them to either open the DB file or convert it to the newer version on startup. If it doesn't you can open the newer version of Access and go to Tools > Database Utilities > Convert Database.
Warning: Everything in your DB may not convert properly so be ready to do some work if this happens.

Question: Access DataBase

I have an access database, one of the forms I am working with has a subform. I want to be able to print part of the main form, and parts of the suboform. I can do this by inserting the form key number and the subform key number, then it prints what I want. What I am looking for is to be able to be in a clients record and push print and without having to enter anything it prints the fields in the form and the subform that I have in a report. I hope this makes sense. Is there a macro that I can put together to do this?

Thank you in advance for any help. .

Answer:Access DataBase

The simplest way although it may not seem like it, is to do the following:
Create a Join Query that includes both tables/queries (whatever your using), and create Joins on the 2 Key fields (related), this query should then become the control source for you report.
Now in the new query go to the field that contains the data you will be selecting on the form. eg the ID for the Main form

In the criteria row right click and select Build, find your form and find the Id field control name. The syntax will be:

[Forms]![FormName]![ControlName]
Now if you don't already have one, place a button on your form that opens the Report or query, it should only display the records for the selected records.

This called "Filter by Form"
Any problems let me know I or some one else can walk you through, it works I use it all the time.

Generally, calculated data isn't stored in tables. There is no need for it. If you calculate data, you use it in queries or reports . . . when you create a report, you base it on your query, not your table.

Answer:access Database

you can link by selecting the table tab in the DB window and then click NEW followed by selecting Link. Then search for your other database and select the table you want to link to.

You will now have access to all the fields, it is the same as a table now except you may have sharing issues if the table is opened on the source DB.

You can use this linked table just as a regular table to make reports forms, queries etc. so you may not need the table you created with the same information as it is redundant.

So you can make a form with your linked table with a combo to select the product.

Question: MS Access database

I am developing an Access database, one of the uses for which will be mail merging letters and mailing labels. The database records all contain an Area field, which contains an area code in the range 1-10. I've created a query which allows the viewing of records for specific areas (i.e. it filters the data so I can see just area 1, just area 2, etc). Instead of having a separate query for each area I put [Area?] in the Criteria for Area on the query design so that a box appears when I run the query into which I can enter the area code I want, click OK, and then that area is displayed. This all works fine.However, when I come to try mail merging, the query is not visible in the list of ones I can select in Word! If I make a query without the [Area?] variable in then it works OK (i.e. if I specify "1" as the area criteria).Can anyone advise what I'm doing wrong?

Answer:MS Access database

Searching around on the internet, I found a solution to this.Within Word, you have to go into Tools > Options > General Tab and select confirm conversion at Open. This, for some reason, displays a different menu when you select the database as the source for the mailmerge, from which you can select a DDE connection which then gives you the full list of tables and queries from Access.

Answer:Access Database - HELP!!!!

The first thing to try after taking a backup copy of the Database is a "Repair & Compact" of the current one. You should open Accees, not the database and then choose Tools>Database Utilities>Repair & Compact. Choose the current database to repair and Compact and save it under a new name. Open the newly named, repaired database and see if it still has the same problem.

I want to put in the current date or earlier (I may use yesterday's date when I finally get around to entering data) as my variables for the timing to update the inventory transaction table (units received and units on hand fields).

Can you give me the operators and operands in the expression builder and the complete proper syntax that I would need to tell an event has happened and to update the table.

Thank you in advance - you guys are so good!!

Question: access database

I have created a tracking program using access, the main tracking page contains name, address, phone numbers, computer information etc. I also have two fields that I insert the problem, and then the fix, then that is printed out to give to the customer. whenever the customer brings their computer back in for service, I do a search for their account, and it brings up all the pre existing info. There last problem and cure are still in there... I would like to find some way if it's possible to make this dump the items to a database for each customer in case I want to go into it again and look at past events. Then the next time I open their account, the problem and cure fields are empty, but their data past problem and cure will still be in there.....
I almost have this program or database to where it will do everything that I want it to do.

Any help would be very much appreciated.

Question: Access Database

I have an issue with an access database. When I print out a report one of my columns only prints out 4 out of the 5 digits. This happens with 2 machines. On other pcs the 5 digits appear in output of the report. I have checked the resolutions of the pcs and they are the same. I cannot figure out why only 4 digits appear out of the 5.

Can anybody help?

Hello, I am using Access 2000 and have created a database with a command button that opens up a report via a macro. I would like to know how to open up single reports instead of pushing a button that brings up every report, I've been able to open up reports that are based off of queries, queries that have paramenters that need to be inputted in order to bring up single unique records, but I would like to be able to just create a button that brings just that particular unique record-report off of that particular unique record on that form. Meaning that for a record that had just been inputted for John Doe on a form, I would like to know how to create a button on that form to pull up John Doe's single report without having to build a query that asks for a parameter. Is there anyway to do this?
 

Answer:Access-Printing a single report off of a single record from an Access database form

You will have to adapt this to your own form setup; but it's just using the Where line of the OpenReport macro action.

If on the form MyFormName you have two controls called txtFirstNm and txtLastNm, and in the query underlying the report you have two fields called FirstNm and LastNm, you would put into the Where line of the OpenReport action:

Code:
[FirstNm]=[Forms]![MyFormName]![txtFirstNm] And [LastNm]=[Forms]![MyFormName]![txtLastNm]
Hope that helps.

Hi! I'm a web designer - new to databases.

I'm setting up a database for a DJ company, and wanted a second opinion. Is it better to create one table called "Events" (which would necessarily hold a space for only occasionally required fields like BridesName and GroomsName), or to break the table down into a table for Weddings, Parties, Mitzvahs, etc. and either risk some form of redundancy. I'm leaning toward the first option, but wasn't certain, and wanted a second opinion.

"You do not have exclusive access to the database at this time. Any changes you make may not be saved."

This happens to multiple users. When they access the database a .ldb file appears indicating it is locked. Some times the user can make changes and some times not. The file is located in a place similar to this: G:\share\subfolder\atc board database.mdb

hi all,
i would like to ask for database performance :

currently i split my ms access database to front end (form interface) and backend. the backend file i put on shared folder on dedicated pc, which i assume as server. the database then access by 10 staff, which having the frontend file on each pc. the backend file was ~20MB in size.

there's an option, which is upsizing the backend to be sql. then install ms sql server express 2008 r2 on "server" pc, then host the backend file and modified the frontend file so, it'll access the backend database on sql connection.

is this will increase any performance from current setting?

thank you.

Answer:Database - MS Access Backend vs MS SQL

Hi there
probably not the answer you are looking for but if you use MySQL (FREE for non commercial users) you will improve your DB performance compared with MS ACCESS by literally ZILLIONS of percent.

It's slightly more complex to get up and running but there are tutorials all over the web.

Beats running a "cut down version" of ms sql too.

Incidentally MySQL in combination with Apache, and PHP makes a great WEB server too (WAMP). Also compatable with Linux where the same combination is called LAMP.

I've been tasked to set up an Access Database that will accept input from Excel spreadsheets (from a template file that is created and distributed to several employees. The files will contain about 25 fields, some inventory and some dollar amounts, as well as a few contact information type fields. I'm okay up until this point.

Now, these templates will be completed once a month and turned in. If the data was replacing the previous amounts in the fields, I'd know how to do this easily, but the daya needs to be tracked for each month. So, January will have a customer account with 25 fields. February, that same customer account will have new data (potentially) in all 25 fields. So rather than have one record for each customer, I'll need to have one for each month that goes by.

I may be sounding vague on this, so ask questions as needed, but I'm not sure how to go about this. If I create a February record, the customer info, account number, etc will all be the same, so wouldn't that cause issues going forward? If there's no easy way to do this, does that mean Access might not be the best solution? I believe Access was suggested so queries could be run to extract data.

Answer:Access Database Question

You can have two tables in Access, one with Customer account details with a unique ID (autonumber should work fine) and the other with the monthly transaction details.
When you are adding the data from the spreadsheet, you could update the existing customer details or add new customer details, and insert the transaction details in the other table for that customer using the ID as reference.

I haven't thought about this fully, so there could be gaps in the logic

EDIT:
1. Whenever you are adding the data from the spreadsheet, you would need to check if the customer already exists in the customer table and insert or update as necessary (if updating, get the customer ID for inserting the transactions).

2. Even when you are updating the customer record, you will need to make sure it has to be updated (could be spelling mistakes in the new record)

I want to make a database listing CDs and track titles. I can't figure out how to go about this, since the number of tracks vary so widely on different CDs. Some CDs have 23 tracks! Do I need to create 23 fields just for those few?

Better yet, can I make an expandable field that will keep creating new data fields as needed?

I know how to set up a basic database, so I don't need help with that.

Thanks.

Answer:MS-Access: How to Create a CD Database

The idea that you propose in having a single table that lists the CD Name (Album Name) and the tracks together as a single line item isn't a very effective method of making that database for exactly the reasons you raised. Rather than having them in one table, split them up and relate them.

The way I would go about doing this is...

Table 1: Albums
Fields: Album Name, Artist, Year, Genre, Whatever other fields you might add
Primary Key: Either make it a composite key with Album Name and Artist or create an additional field which contains a unique identifier such as a Number. I would suggest creating a unique field as the primary key as it is easier to work with.

Table 2: Tracks
Fields: Song Title, Artist, Album, Track Number
Primary Key: I would go with Song Title and Artist as a composite Primary Key.

Table 3: Artists (If you so choose)
Fields: Artist, any other info about the artist or group you wish to include.
Primary Key: Artist Name

The important thing is the relationships between these three tables.

Albums Table is related to Tracks Table in a One to Many Relationship (One album has Many songs).

Albums Table is also related to the Artist Table in a One to Many Relationship as well (One Artist may have Many Albums).

You need to determine what you want to have as your primary keys which will determine what the foreign keys will be in the related tables. For example, if in the Albums Table you use the Name and Artist as the Primary Key, then these fields would... Read more

I have a really confounding problem. Situation: Small non-profit organization with 7 workstations, mostly Dell Pentium 4s. Office network uses a Buffalo server and router. I don't know for sure, but assume the network is a simple 10Base-T. The organization runs on the MS Access databases I've designed, one of which is a reservation system. The major tables for that system are the Signups table, where the information for each reservation is collected and the EventSched, which simply contains data for all the events for the year, with event type, date, departure and return time, location, program type, etc. The tables contain a lot of links to auxiliary tables, per the attachment. The database is a client/server design: Forms on the workstations, tables on the Buffalo.

Each year, I go in and set up the reservation tables for the next year, in this case 2010. I did that yesterday. I first copied the database containing the 2009 tables to a file with the name "10 PublicSailTbls.mdb". After deleting all the records in the Signups, EventSched, Manifest, and HowPaid tables to make them ready for next year's entries, on the workstation on which I was doing this, I also copied the 2009 Forms (client) side of the split database, changed the name to "2010 PublicSailForms.mdb" and changed the links to the 2010 tables file on the Buffalo.

Answer:Splitting an MS Access Database

33M is not that big for an Access database, but they are generally stored on a server. I assume you have this one at home and suspect that your tables are not properly normalized. Why don't you export one of them, preferably your biggest one and email it to me (zipped probably) and I'll check it out for you.

Otherwise, you could create a new blank database and export a table or two to it, then link the table to your existing database. However, linked tables can only be changed in its own database.

Answer:importing database in access

I'm assuming you are importing the tables, it seems like you are importing the primary key also, that will cause a problem because there will be duplicates.

You can try dumping the table into Excel and strip off the ID column and then import the excel table or Paste it into the table. Access will create new ID's for it.

In Access I have a table of Company names which business advisors have worked with. This is a linked table to an Excel spreadsheet which in turn is an output of an external data source. I have another table in Access where I log all companies where I have received an eligibility form. What I need is a query which would list all companies where I have not received an eligibility form. An inner join between the 2 company name fields would return the opposite ie. a list of companies that are eligible ie. where a form has been received.Similarly, I also have a linked table containing all invoices outstanding for a particular project, and another table where I log the invoice numbers of payments made under that project. I need a query that would return all unpaid invoices.

Answer:Access database Inner Joins

You can use the unmatched query wizard. This works only if you have designed your tables correctly. The 2 tables should be linked by an id field. Where you have received a form, you will have an entry in the eligibility form table. So if you run the unmatched query wizard what you will have is a left outer join and the filter criteria in the elibility form table primary key is set to "Is Null" But the wizard does it all and you don't need to worry about what kind of join it is.I am a bit worried. The overriding principle of a relational database is that no piece of information is ever stored twice. In other words you shouldn't be linking tables via comapany names. They should be joined via a primary key. You will have problems linking tables via names. The slightest typo makes them different.Check out the Northwind database and the examples there.

Hi, i have a database set up at work held on a shared drive. I need to let multiple users access the database during the day all being able to save the database. I have the tables saved in a different folder with access to the forms in another folder. I have linked the tables from one database to the one used for updates. I am worried that users will be unable to save on the database as access will not be exclusive at any one time. Is there a way around this so that this can be done.ThanksFF

Answer:access database query

I'm no expert, but I don't think Access has problems with multiple users accessing tables simultaneously. I know Excel throws a wobbly if one tries to save to a sheet that somebody else has open, but I think Access is OK with it. I do however stand ready to be corrected as there's no way I can check this at the moment.

Can you tell me what the database is designed to do?
As it does not appear to be designed correctly for keeping records of membership payments etc.

Answer:Access- Cant save database?

First, make sure it is not Read-Only (right-click, Properties). If you are trying to save the whole database, then you should be able to save as to the CD. If you are trying to just save a table (or some other portions of the database), make a blank database and import those items into it.
Good luck.

I have several databases in Access 97 that reach their maximum size during operation. I have to compact the database and start over each time. It sure would be nice to be able to insert some code in the startup module/macro that would compact the database before running the remaining code.
Is it possible to compact the database that is currently open with some code in the startup macro/module?
 

Answer:Access Compacting a database

Databases must be closed in order to compact.
A closed DB cannot run VBA.
You'll be happy to know that Access 2K has a "compact on close" feature.

Answer:ms access database locked

Well, you could try downloading the trial version of this program:
http://www.5star-shareware.com/Business/MS-OfficeAdd-Ins/access-passkey.html
and it will tell you the first 2 letters of your password - it might help you remember...

These guys will apparently remove the password for free if you send them the file, but I've never used it, so caveat emptor...

There's lots of programs which you can buy to do the job, costing from $15 to $150....

Hi, not sure if anyone here will be able to help me out here, but I am currently studying databases, and am a bit stuck on a particular link between the following 2 tables:- 'Jobs' (Primary key = JOBID) - 'Employees' (Primary key = EMPLOYEEID)Each job can have more than one employee involved, and each employee can have more than one job involved. I believe this is a many-to-many relationship and I understand that I need a linking table.Does anyone know how to do this so that when I go onto the employee table, I am shown a list of jobs, and vice versa?Regards, Tom

Answer:MS Access Database - Many to many relationship
