Answer: Help with contact form for my website

After searches, I found a site that offers remotely hosted contact forms, EmailMe Form™ - HTML Forms, a simple way to receive email from your website . Basically, I paste the html code in my website, and it calls the php script on their server who sends the email.

Having a fairly simple website for work containing a contact form, with the proliferation of mobiles and increasing views on our site, I've designed a simple contact form for mobile users and am asking for opinions on usability from other mobile devices, I've used my galaxy tab but don't have access to numerous other mobiles.
The form is here
the rest of the mobile site is this one
I am aware the reest of the site doesn't yet point to the reminder form , I want opinions before it goes live.

Answer:Need a contact form

you could setup a mailto link. this would require the user to have a email client installed with a working email account. http://webdesign.about.com/od/beginn...egin100299.htm

otherwise, you would need to create a server side script that could send mail. you can do this with php or asp and prolly several other languages.

How can I change my email address from text into an image? Someone told me that this way it won't be picked up by spam bots and it will reduce spam. :cry
 

Answer:I need help with contact form

Hi

Easy way is to type it in Word or Notepad then take a screenshot of it by pressing PrtScn and then opening Paint and cropping the excess image down so a small image is left, as in below


not a real email address, just made it up now

however if your after tech support via email on forums then most folk dont do that as they dont wish their email addresses known to strangers so not advisable to post in this scenario, plus not in the spirt of forums and sharing but if wanting to add it to a website/blog you are creating then this is a good option

Question: Contact Form Spam

I have a contact form on my website inviting people to enquire about my services. During the last 4 weeks all my spam has been of a similar style. The email address where the spam comes from is almost always in the form [email protected] with the names always being normal rather than silly, though the name of the sender is often silly. The other fields just contain random characters. The message always says "Good site, Admin" or "Good Post, Admin". No trying to link me to porn or sell me drugs or anything with any purpose at all.Has anyone else experienced this, and if so, what are the aims of the spammer?

Answer:Contact Form Spam

what are the aims of the spammer?If you open/reply they know it has reached a valid address, the real spam will then follow later.Delete all e-mails from unknown addresses without opening.

Answer:Needing help with .php for contact form

Here's a few quick notes:

You will want one of two results. Either present the form again, or redirect. I usually have the form page submit to itself, and redirect on success, or even put it all into one php script. All that is needed is for the code to decide which path to take.

Since this is post data, you can use $_POST[$name] to reference form data. Here is some simple untested code for example:
PHP:

<?php
//if the form is filled properly, redirect
if (
!empty(
$_POST['Name'])
&&
$_POST['Email']==$_POST['Confirm_Email']
&&
validEmail($_POST['Email'Read more

Have you got a link to the page so we can have a look at the code ?Also, always solve the first problem and re-validate, you'll probably lose more than the one error.

Hello. My fiance decided to make a website for girls party ideas using sbi, so she asked me to do it for her. After some reading up, this is what I have come up with: a href="click here">Click here /a>So far I've taught myself XHTML and CSS (as much as I can anyway!). Now my future father-in-law has asked me to do his site for him. Now he wants a contact form like on the party site, but with sbi all this is included, you just paste the code into your page. How would i go about creating this myself? Also any criticism of my party site welcome, we've only been up for 3 months so still at the "development" stage lol!

Answer:Creating a contact form

You could use the same code that you have in your existing website. However, you'll see that the form actio points to a PERL (.pl) script in the CGI-bin folder on the server. You need such a mail script in the CGI-bin of the new server (and amend te code to point at the correct scrit). A popular one is FormMail (use Gogle and find a free download).However, there is a danger (apparently) in using these scripts as they can get hijacked by spammers to send vast amounts of spam and then your ISP may suspend your account. If you know, say, PHP you can write a page that will send such a contact form that doesn't use a separate script in CGI-bin. This would be a safer bet.

Answer:Outlook 2007 - Contact Form

The option to enter children is already there. Open a contact, in the ribbon click "show all fields", in the drop down box click "name fields" from there highlight children and enter names.

However, I can't seem to get one thing to work.For contacts I have the usual notes field. But I need another field for personal info that won't get synchronized over to my iPhone.I call this field "Personal Info". I tried using another notes field, but Outlook won't allow two note fields in a Contact form. So I tried a user defined field, but it won't allow multi-line operation -- only a single line with no carriage returns.

Is it possible to configure a PHP file to send the message to a particular address from a choice of two, based on the selection from a drop-down box on the form? ie. the site visitor selects option A and their message goes to address Y; select B and the message goes to Z.I thought this might be possible with an if command of some kind. If it's not possible, that's not the end of the world, but it would save having two seperate forms when only the subject matter is unique to each.

I have on my website a contact form generated by a free little script called "Contact Form Generator". It's worked fine for about a year. I just noticed that it stopped working about a month ago. When a visitor sends his message, the script reports success. However, nothing arrives at the mailbox.

When I send to the contact mailbox (which is an Exchange box) from another Exchange box on the same network or from an outside webmail box, it arrives in the contact box, so the mailbox itself seems to be working.

What might cause this to stop working?

Hey All...

Running Outlook 2003 on a PC and a laptop, both using XP Pro. I recently signed up with a Microsoft exchange host by the name of Mailstreet. Once doing that I designed a customized Outlook contact form by the name of 061907, saved it to the Personal Forms Library, then right-clicked on my Contacts folder, went to Properties, and made sure that the "When posting to this folder, use: " dropdown was set to 061907. This worked dandy for several weeks until one day when I was out of the country (of course), I tried to open a new contact file, I received the dreaded "this form could not be found. Contact your administrator." pop-up. I also noticed that half the emails in my inbox had turned into Posts (yellow note icon). I went to my flash drive, where I had a copy of 061907 stored, and resaved that over the old version I had in my Personal Forms Library. That helped, in that my customized form returned, but every time I clicked on an existing contact or clicked on New Contact, the computer would do nothing for ten seconds, a pop-up saying "Done." would appear, and THEN my desired contact form would appear. Very irksome.

So I got home and fired up my desktop and it is doing the exact same thing! And since I was told that custom Outlook contact forms are all dealt with locally, it all seems a bit weird to me. I found this article (http://www.kbalertz.com/kb_839804.aspx) which deals with this problem. It suggests that there is some kind of c... Read more

Hi, I work in a small business and I want eveyone to put their outlook contacts in a public folder so we can create a shared contact database. I then want to do e-mail merge selectively. My idea is to create a new field (or modfiy a user defined field) with a dropdown list so that people could consistently categorise their contacts before sharing them e.g. prospect, customer, reseller etc. Can anyone tell me how to amend the standard contact form and then publish it so everyone can use it as their standard contact form without having to 'reload' all their contacts?

Alternatively, is there a better way of achieving the end result? The attraction of this approach is that the mail merge program allows for boolean operators to be used on any field in the record so we could select all contacts with User Field 1 = to 'customer' for example, it also allows multiple selection criteria.

I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks
 

Answer:Customising contact form in Outlook 2007

I don't recommend using exchange for a marketing database, especially if the company is very large. You will be constantly limited, importing and exporting data. Users will have thier grandmothers, poker buddies and and ex wives information in Contacts. Build a marketing database in Access or something. Then you can easily do reports and sort and all kinds of things people will want. You can initally populate it with contacts and build from there and 'push' information to public folders from the database.

Bottom line is Exchange main function is to enhance communications, trying turn it into an enterprise solution is a bad starting point.

Just my opinion. Your experience may vary...

I have been struggling with this for far too long. I'm having a problem with an Excel Spreadsheet control on a custom OL '03 contact form. I added the spreadsheet on the second page of the form. My problem is that it appears that I can either display the spreadsheet as I've formatted it, complete with column headers, but the users can't enter data, OR I can allow users to enter and save data with the VBScript copied and modified from Sue Mosher's site...

Dim XLSheet

Function Item_Open()
Set oPage = Item.GetInspector.ModifiedFormPages("Notes")
Set XLSheet = oPage.Controls("Spreadsheet1")
XLSheet.HTMLData = Item.BillingInformation
Item.Subject = Item.Subject 'Dirty the form
End Function

Function Item_Write()
Item.BillingInformation = XLSheet.HTMLData
End Function

but not both. I either get a blank spreadsheet without formatting or headers that I can type into and save, or I get an error message that states that the spreadsheet is locked. When I delete the code entirely, I can see the spreadsheet as formatted, but that doesn't allow the saving of data. I tried setting the protection of the spreadsheet AFTER opening it up with code, but that didn't work either. I'm better at VBA than VBS and I know I'm missing something here. What I want is for the users to see a spreadsheet with three columns, the first row with headers that is protected from change, and they can enter new data into the spreadsheet... Read more

Answer:outlook 98 contact form change default

How can I change the default form in the contact manager of outlook98? I designed a custom form and would like to import a database into the custom form. But the default contact form comes up always.

I've done this with Outlook 2000, so it might work for 98. Click View, Folder List. This will bring down a menu listing of all your folders. Right-click on your Contacts folder, selct Properties.On the General tab, in 2000, there is a drop down area that reads "When posting to this folder, use:" and then you get the drop down box to pick contact or forms. From the Forms selection, you will be able to choose any other default form, or ones you have created and saved in your Personal Forms Library. Sorry I couldn't give you specifics on Outlook 98, but I don't use it anymore. Hope this helps, or at least points you in the right direction.

I suspect that there is a copy of the original form that I may have saved in a different folder somewhere that Outlook keeps accssing but I cannot find it.

Any help I can get will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Hi, I run Outlook on my home laptop. I do not use Microsoft Exchange Server.

I have a custom contact form that I use for all new contacts.

I have saved it as the default form in my Contacts Folder and all new contacts successfully use that form.

Unfortunately, I cannot modify edit or change that default form.

Every time I make a change and try to save the updated form as the default contact form, Outlook keeps calling up the old form.

I have read everything I can find to solve the problem but nothing seems to work.

INFO FIRST:
Dell Inspiron 8100 WinXP professional, sp2 (need to update)
30gb hd, Intel Pent 3, 572mb ram, mobile cpu 1000mhz
Office XP sp3 professional edition

Hello All!

I hope someone here can help me out.

I am entering contacts from a roladex into OLXP. These contacts are for business only, not personal or HOME numbers. When I am entering a new contact, there is usually no need for the HOME number phone field. Therefore, I would like to change the initial view/list of phone fields...from BUSINESS, HOME, BUSINESS FAX, MOBILE to BUSINESS, BUSINESS 2, BUSINESS FAX, MOBILE.

Now I do know how to create a new custom form and field and to design and publish it. BUT the phone selctor and phone selected fields are more tricky - unless I'm missing something very simple - who knows.

Does anyone know how to change the initial phone listing that is displayed?? This would really improve the flow of input.

Thank you for reading my post....and hopefully helping me out

Ruthann
 

Answer:OLXP custom contact form-change view of phone field

dunno wether this is the same of OutlookXP, but in Outlook 2003 you can change the layout of the forms by oping up a new contacts form then choose from the menu, Tools > Forms > Design This Form > change & remove what you need then save.

I have a website which I use only to forward email. The site doesn't work and all email sent to the site has bounced for over a week. I tried contacing technical support, but have received no response. I would like to transfer this site to another provider, but cannot do so without an authorization code, which I cannot get because I can't contact the provider. The provider is mapname.com, which is associated with dewdesigns.com . I managed to find a telephone number for them, but never get an answer.

What can I do?

Hi there

Just wondering if there are any experts out there on this.

I have a 'contact us' form on one of my webistes - http://stayhome-mum.com/contactus.html

I had someone send me a message using this form, but they used a fake email when they filled it out.

This message I believe is from someone that is very close to crossing the line for stalking, but because they sent it through this form I cannot say for sure that it was them that sent it.

The message was very threatening - both in threatening to ruin my business as well as threatening bodily harm.

So I am trying to see if there is any way of being able to trace who sent the message through this form.

Is there anyone that has any knowledge on this that could help me with this please.

Answer:Problem with Frontpage form on my new website

is it the standard Windows server challenge - the type you see when you want to logon to a network?You'll need to explain your system in more detail. As I understand it you have a site that's entirely Flash, and you want to send customer's payments from it to your PayPal account, is that right? For some reason you've bought a special domain name and set up yet another site to do this - why have you done that?It sounds to me as if the form is submitting itself to a different server directory - one on which you don't have write permissions, so the server is issuing what we used to call an NT challenge, the type you get when you logon to a network workgroup.Perhaps if you could give me a step-by-step explanation I'll be able to sort this out for you.

For Outlook 2007, I have a code in the script of my contact form, that creates a calendar event for the the contact I open when I click on a commandbutton that is a part of the scipt code...and the calendar event shows the dates, subject and location areas based on the combobox fields in the contact form that has all that information.

I just learned also that I can add to the note field, the body, of the calendar event, different words from other commboboxes in the contact form, so it shows in the calendar event in the note area, other words from the contact, which also then shows up in the iphone calendar!

But the code the goes to the commboboxes in the contact, does not word for the email address fields or the website field in the contact.

So here is the code that works for the FullName field which includes a Dim, an If code, and then shows how the itmappt.body shows it in the calendar event.

Is there a way to create one that works also for the email field and one that words for the website field from the contact?

Thanks so much:

Dim txtEmailAddress
Dim txtWebsite

Hey guys - got an issue I'm totally stumped with:

I have a customer I support on Office 365 and have done for the last 6-8 months. Their website is less than spectacular but does include a booking form for enquires (car rental company)

I have no control over the website but am talking to the guy who has access to the site and domain panel for the company.

From my understanding, when a customer fills in the form and clicks submit, the web server hosting the site and form sends out a confirmation email to the customer and to the [email protected] email address for the company - for this to work the domain has to allow both the website and the office 365 email address to send emails - to allow this to work, this needs an TXT/SPF record allowing both servers to send email using the @companyname.co.uk domain (please correct me if this is wrong!)

We had the same issue a few months ago, in the end we created an SPF/TXT record that combined the webserver and the 365 exchange server, it took a few hours to finalize but it did seem to resolve the issue.

For some reason in the last few days, the form has stopped working again, the customer doesn't receive a confirmation email, nor does the [email protected] address - the only thing I can thing of is that the domain is not allowing the webserver to send email or something to that nature.

I have submitted test bookings which have gone nowhere and had no response to any address, however if I just send emails to the [email pro... Read more

Answer:Form on website displaying comments in html

Greetings, BexBomb.

Sounds like you've got something missing, most likely a bracket. Look for code similar to this:

<form>yada yada</form

Notice the missing > after the second "form".

If you can't find the culprit, post the address and I'll take a look at it, or you can validate the page at w3.org which should show any HTML mistakes on the page.

I really do look for a speedy reply and solution. Thanks

I've sync'd my google contacts with the people contacts in 8.1. On initial setup everything transferred ok. To test the link I then added a new contact in google to see if it would sync with the people contacts. So far it hasn't. How often does the people app update with google?

jj

Answer:How often does the People Contact sync with google contact

Finding the same problem here, made some changes to Google contacts and still hasn't been captured by the People app days later although it says it syncs each time I've opened it.

To be honest, what I thought would be a very useful app when I first heard about it has become nearly unused by me because of things like this or the inability to add a birthday directly in the app to a contact. Just feels half done and forgotten by MS at this point.

I sent to look at my Sent Items tonight and to my surprise I saw another email apparently sent yesterday that I definitely didn't send.

I was astonished to find this as I have just upgraded to Vista in the last 2 days and have sent minimal emails.

The subject is "Form posted from Microsoft Internet Explorer." & is sent to a Hotmail account. The attachment is a POSTDATA.ATT. When I look at this file in txt format it has info such as one of my email addresses, my website & description - as if I had filled out a web form & pressed Submit.

Now, thinking about it, shouldn't IE let you know that it is about to send data?

One strange thing is that the email is dated yesterday evening in the Sent list, but when I open the email to view it, it will always have the current date & time - seemingly from the Windows clock.

I am thinking that either

1) this is due to a bug in the new IE & yesterday I visited a website which submitted data via email without my knowledge or

2) this email is an old email that I Imported from backed up email (PST format) from a form I ACTUALLY sent that Internet Mail has redated - maybe something went

Sorry for the long post but I'm just wary, hope it makes sense! I was liking Windows Vista so far!
 

Answer:Sent Items: Form posted from Microsoft Internet Explorer. - I didnt submit any form!

I have moved this to vista forum as I believe it is more likely to be a vista live mail issue

Hi All,

Noob first-time poster I'm afraid!

I'm new to Access 2007 (but have used 2003 & 2000 reasonably extensively).

I'm building an App and have created all the necessary tables, as well as creating the relationships in the Database Tools area (which I know are correct - I'm a SQL Server DBA in my day job)!

Anyway, it's an almost text book example of an employers and employees database; one employer having many employees (employerID is the foreign key on the employee table).

I have created an employer form (using the wizard) which is fine, but then when I add a button to open the employee form (selecting 'Open the form and find specific records', matching employerID on the Employer table with EmployerID on the Employee table) it doesnt work. Instead, I get a popup box asking me for the EmployerID! Even if I manually enter the correct employerID when the popup box appears it actually displays all records, so I'm sure that the problem is more fundamental (and therefore, probably my fault)!

I'm hoping that I've just overlooked something REALLY stupid, but would apprecaite any suggestions!

Cheers,
Ian.
 

Answer:Access 2007 Form Button Wizard - Form does not open with the correct records

I have seen this kind of problem with Access 2007 VBA code which does not work when it dod in 2000-2003.
It can be a Syntax problem which you may be able to get around, if not you can get around the problem bby using a Criteria in the Query that supplies the Employee Form.
Although I would have thought it would be better design wise to have the Employees as a Subform or Tabbed Subform on your Employer Mainform.
I do not have Access 2007, only 2003 so I can't help with the VBA, but you could post the code anyway.

Did you use a Wizard to create the Employee Form, if so check the Record Source SQL it may be preventing your EmployerID from working.

Hi all

I have a simple Access (2003) db which has a single form view with a subform. The main form is a record based upon a physical case file the subform only details actions past and future, a sort of event log.

I also have a continuous form which displays all upcoming actions sorted by date on all cases for a particular user so they can see just how busy they are likely to be for a particular period. What I would like to do is have an on click() property for the detail of the continuous form so that it opens the main form filtered by the record in the continuous form that was clicked. User can then update or add new events for that case before closing form and returning to the continuous form

Hope this makes sense
 

Answer:MS access open single form filtered by selected record in continuous form

coasterman, welcome to the Forum.
It makes perfect sense.
If you add a Command Button to the Continuous Form and after selecting the mainform select the "Open the Form and find specific data to display". This will give you the code that you need to add to your On Click or On Double Click property or of course leave the button and use that.

Hi all. I do have another post going but do not want to cram so many questions in one post. (Hope that this is an acceptable practice )Anyway, my Sony desktop crashed the other day. I had a new Hard Drive installed and recovery disks were used. PC is good to go. Trying to tweek it back to the way I am used to having it.QUESTION:I had a form filler program called ROBOFORM on this PC before it crashed. I had MANY years of passwords and stuff saved there.When I brought this PC to the Geek Squad at Best Buy the other day to see if the PC could be repaired, I was told the hard drive went. They were, however, able to make a disk with my ROBOFORM passwords. I can not get the disc to open the list of passwords. It asks me where I want to open the and give me a list of choices. (Paint, notepad, adobe etc.) None of them will run/open the files so I can see them.This was a program that I paid for. How can I make the disc start to fill my forms again when I am at certain sites? (Gee, hope I am making sense)I just realized I never downloaded the ROBOFORM program onto this pc.  Does that have anything to do with the disc not opening??If I go and download ROBOFORM, how does it know who I am. How will it know about the disc full of passwords? How do they recognize each other?HELP PLEASE..........My Passwords are VERY important to me.Thanks!!

Hello,
thanks for taking a look at this thread, any help will be greatly appreciated by a complete Noob.

I've been given a LOT of help by members of this Forum (especially OBP) with a DB I'm making as a first look at any type of IT product, and I'm very grateful, so thank you all.

Recently, I was advised to take a look at the "Tabbed" style of "MainForm" instead of the "Switchboard" style I originally used. I must say, I really like the tabbed style much more than the switchboard but I've hit one hurdle that I can't seem to overcome.

In the Switchboard style, I was able to set a form to load in either DATA ENTRY = YES or DATA ENTRY = NO mode depending on which sub-switchboard the user selected. For example, I had a ENTER NEW sub-switchboard that all forms would open in DATA ENTRY = YES mode & I had another EDIT EXISTING sub-switchboard that all forms would open in DATA ENTRY = NO mode.

However, with the new tabbed style, I cannot set the form load type for separate tabbs, it will only accept the LAST type as the GLOBAL type. Example, on the ENTER NEW tab, I set the form to load as DATA ENTRY = YES & sets the form to open in DATA ENTRY = YES on both tabs, then I go to the EDIT EXISTING tab & set the same form to DATA ENTRY = NO & it sets the form to open in both tabs in DATA ENTRY = NO mode.

So, my question is:
Can I set the same form to load differently on different tabs on the same MainForm?
If so, w... Read more

Answer:Solved: MS Access - Tabbed MainForm - How to make a form open a form in multiple mode

I would just copy the Subform, so you have version 1 for data entry with the Data Entry set to "Yes" and version 2 set to "No".
The only thing you need to do then is to Requery the Editing form each time you make an entry in the data entry form.
Although I prefer to just have an Edit form with a "New Record" button for the data entry.

My multi item form isn't letting me add new records, only update and delete current ones.

My guess it that this is because the form is based on a multi-table query. That's fine, I can make a new form specifically for adding new records, but I'd like to be able to salvage this form if possible. Is there any way to either force this form to accept new records in the bottom row, or is there any way to get rid of the "add record" bottom row completely so it's not misleading users into thinking they can add records here?

Thanks in advance.

Hi All,

I need some help to figure out how to do a project.
i was given a sample tax form from the government that i have to re-create in electronic format. I have to build the form to match their specifications exactly. I've tried to do it in MS Word 2003 using a table, but the when i try to ensure that the tables cells are the same size as that on the paper - the tables keeps either changing the dimensions of the cell or changing the dimensions of other table cells.

the major thing is to ensure that the form i build matched that paper sample exactly - for example i cannot be off by even a millimetre.

In addition to that, my company has extracted the tax data for its 400-500 employees into an Excel Spreadsheet. I have to use the excel spreadsheet to make the "form" i created fillable.

The previos analyst used ms word 2003 and created the form using the drawing menu and text boxes and then mail merged the info in the excel sheet to the word doc.

can someone suggest an easier to do this? i wold be grateful for any help i can get.

Regards,
Ariane
 

Answer:Create Electronic Form to match sample paper form

Ariane,
Welcome to TSG

If I got your meaning correctly, then yes, ther's an easier way.
I'm almost sure that you can create the form in Excel, though setting the exact sizes and positions could be difficult.
I'm absolutely sure that you can create the form in Powerpoint, and with this latter, setting the exact sizes and positions should be much more simple.
Automatically filling the Powerpoint form is also possible.

If you only need to print out the filled forms, or create PDF-s, this Powerpoint-Excel duo might be good for you.
If you need to do further calculations with the filled forms, then I strongly recommend to stick with Excel.

I'm also curious what others can say.

Hello

I have a subform which on its own - works beautifully but fails under the mainform. I use a main form to select the record that the end user wants to update. Upon update event on main form, the sub form opens, presenting fields for possible updating. The Sub Form also present 2 buttons - Save & Close or Cancel and Close (Undo). When the main form opens, the code set AllowClose as False. When the sub form is opened as a result of the update on the mainform, the issue is the Close command /code gets canceled. (Error 2501). I have tried: 1. setting AllowClose (true and False) on both forms, 2. only the main form and 3. only the subform. None of these 3 configurations resolves the issue. Also, I tried moving the buttons to the mainform instead of the sub form but that failed as well.

The application has a dozen forms and all of them utilize AllowClose functionality so the end user MUST use the buttons on the forms to force background queries (updates, deletes, perform calculations, recalc control totals etc). This is the first time I have tried to use Allow Close on a subform with buttons.

XP and Access 2007

KEY ELEMENTS OF THE CODE:

Private AllowClose As Boolean

Private Sub Form_Load()
AllowClose = False
End Sub

Private Sub Form_Unload(Cancel As Integer)
Cancel = Not AllowClose
End Sub

Private Sub SaveChangeandCloseForm_Click()
AllowClose = True
DoCmd.Close

Private Sub CancelAddingNewRecord_Click()
If Me.Dirty Then
Me.Undo
End If
If Not Me.NewRecord Then

Answer:Action Canceled - Using AllowClose on Form and Sub Form - Access 2007

Why not just use a listbox to display the records based on the selection on the main form? I don't think you can actually close a sub-form on a main form since it is tied to the main form.

I have a database which ultimately will have a couple of thousand records. The primary table has 30+ fields. I have lots of queries and connected reports to show various subsets of the data needed from the table. However, there are times when what is needed is all fields for a specific subset. Because the records sought often need to be filtered by several criteria, I've found the "Filter by Form" option to work well. I have a button on the main dashboard marked "Find Record" that automatically opens a search form in the "Filter by Form" mode. This allows me to enter information into as many controls as necessary, and returns exactly the right records after clicking on "Toggle Filters" on the ribbon. The problem is that ultimately I need to make this "Access-free". The goal is to create an application from the database without ribbons. I've created a button to run the filter, and another one to print the results, but when the search form is open in the "Filter by Form" mode, it greys out the buttons. I understand that there is a GotFocus command or something similar. Can anyone help with specifics, both the syntax of the command and where the command needs to be typed? Thanks a bunch...I look forward to your reply.
