Preferred Solution: website form problem

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: website form problem

The page (sendemail.php) is on the server but won't open. It's possible that php is not running on the server, or is not working for some reason. I suggest that you check with the host.

Problem creating a website form.I created a form on my website which works fine except that it sends the resulting email to the Outbox in Outlook Express and pops-up a sequence of two security warnings.

I have some webspace with a hosting company for one site built using frontpage and using a form to send results back to my email with results of customers orders, this works fine. I wanted another site to make paypal payment pages for a flash site I have so again I bought a domain name and used the add on domain feature at my web hosting company, I designed a front index page and individual payment pages that are going to be linked to my flash site. Right now for the problem for some reason when I tried to test it and filled out the order form and click submit it flashes on a username and password box up. I don't know why this is, has completly baffled me and my hosting company. Anyone have any ideas why this would happen, the form on my other site as I say done the exact same way works ok. Phil

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.

Hi All,I have a website form that has been created with Dreamweaver which includes a number of compulsory fields. These have all been validated and includes one which requires a number to be entered. With the exception of the number field all fields work OK and the form can be submitted successfully to an e-mail address.The problem I have is that the number field, which is set to a maximum of 4 digits, allows text to be entered as well as numbers. I can't find a way to prevent this. Can anyone help?CheersKenHow

Hi there

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

I have a 'contact us' form on one of my webistes -

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.

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 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

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

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 which should show any HTML mistakes on the page.

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!


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.

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

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.

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?

I have had a look at the button wizard, and it lets you have the option, but when you go through the wizard, it gives you an empty box on the left and a box on the right showing all the fields in the form "A". Nothing to relate to?

Any ideas?

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.

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.


Answer:Create Electronic Form to match sample paper form

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.

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


Private AllowClose As Boolean

Private Sub Form_Load()
AllowClose = False

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.

Answer:Help with access form (insert table value into form field)

Mhouser, if you are trying to "display" a value related to the Combo selection you can have thta value as an extra column in the combo and refer to it with simple VBA.
You should not populate a Field's actual value with that from the combo as that is duplication.

I am a new user to Access 2010. My operation system is Window 7.
I have created a data base with two tables. The first table contains a list of students and their personal information. The second table contains student subjects and has many subject records with a relationship to the student record. The relationship key is the student id.

I have created a form that populates with the student information and contains a subform that populates with that students subjects. All of this works great for existing students. I can edit the student information and and new subject records.

Now here is my problem. I would like to create a form that preceeds my current form. The user would input a student number and click search button. If that student number exists on the student data base then the form that I created should open populated with the student data and their subjects and allow the user to update it. If the student number does not exist, then I would like that same form (or a form with the same layout) to open and the only data populated is the student number that was input on the search form. The user should be able to input all of the student data and course information and hit a save button that would insert the records into the correct database tables.

I have tried many methods to create the intitial search form that would open the correct version of the student form without any progress. Could someone provide me with the macro that would open that correct form, or set t... Read more

Answer:Access query to open Add form or Edit Form

needaccesshelp, welcome to the Forum.
First a couple of points, you do not need to "save" the record, access does so automatically. Also when creating a New record the subform should be automatically populated with the Student Number, this is controlled by the master child links.

The combo you need is a Find combo which can be created using the combo wizard, that combo can have it's Not In List Property set to yes, which can then be used to trigger adding the student that to the table and then to the form (and combo).

I have this small database I am converting from A97 toA2010. I created a new A2010 db and pulled over objects I needed. Everything is tested out and working fine.

case "int":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? intval($theValue) : "NULL";
case "double":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? "'" . doubleval($theValue) . "'" : "NULL";
case "date":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? "'" . $theValue . "'" : "NULL";
case "defined":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? $theDefinedValue : $theNotDefinedValue;
return $theValue;

End If
End If

Which worked fine on three machines that I tested it on locally. However in the 2 remote location there it was tested it the Form would pop upwhen ever any changes were made to the spreadsheet. I need the form to only come up when a selection from the dropdown list in column H is made. As no personal data is in it I'll post a copy with this. To view code use "amber".

Just bought the Yoga 710 -141SK.Running on Windows 10, 64bit. Firefox browser. I also use the Classic Shell app rather than the usual Windows 10 at start. Full screen appears ok in "normal" mode but when I switch to tablet mode, I do not get a full screen. there is a black portion running along the top of the display which effectively reduces the screen size.As some of the screen is also lost when typing, I am only able to see a reduced display.I don´t know how to amend this.Advice please!

I have a form that I am using with the following code:

Private Sub Form_Current()
[PM] = Environ("username")
Datemade = Now()
End Sub

I want it to store the person who made the record but not to update it whenever the form is opened later by others. How do I make it so it only populates 1 time???

Thanks, Joe

I have a Word form fill in document and want to check certain areas to see if they are filled in before saving, closing, or emailing. If the areas are not filled in, then have a prompt telling what areas need to be filled in.

Can this be done and how?

Hey, I am facing a problem that does not convert any high quality videos from pc to my phone, when I copy and paste it, it does not converts and copied the high quality video or music. What to do?

Answer:Problem in convert and coping form PC

Have you tried "drag and drop" method ?
The method is a bit primitive, but it should work.
A much better method is to enable the Copy/to and Move/to right click context menu in your PC.
Connect your phone to your Windows PC > right click at the video or the music file > click Copy/to > navigate to your phone > select a folder from your phone > click Copy.

Am I missing something really simple here,I have been advised to use this service, click here by the CAB and am looking at the new client form, at the bottom of the page.Now it says download and complete it and return it to us by post or e-mail for a written reply. How do I fill this form in and then email it, i have downloaded the form but don't see how I can fill it in without printing it out first. I suppose I could then scan the completed form back to the PC and email it that way.Again if I seem to be missing something simple here.

Answer:Completing a form and emailing it problem.

Open the Document(pdf)Ctrl+A (select all Ctrl+C (copy)open wordCtrl+V (paste)fill in save as Open e-mail attach doc.

Hi I've managed to design the frontpage form to how I want it only I'm trying to use dropdown links to make the form look neater and I can add what I want only when I click ok it says the controls name is not a valid indentifier for scripting languages any script that frontpage generates may not work properly, change the controls name so it starts with a letter. Please can anyone tell me what this means and will it effect my form when uploaded and people try to use it.CheersPhil

Answer:Problem with frontpage creating a form

I suspect that you have named a field/s with a description that suits you but not Front Page. If you right-click each field and choose 'Form Field Properties' check the value in the 'Name' box. This should start with a letter and, if more than one word, should not have any spaces between them - use an underscore to join words up, i.e. Visitor_URL.

My company are using Windows 95 Clients running Outlook 98 connecting to an Exchange 5.5 Server.

We have some custom forms that were created with the Exchange Forms Designer.

For the most part these forms appear to work fine, but intermittently the machine will hang. The item 'Not Responding' is a randomly generated name in the forms directory.

Upon choosing 'End Task' the machine will function again with no further problems for days or weeks on end, then it will hang again with exactly the same problem

Going through Technet I appear to be getting the EXACT problem on Technet article Q193605, but this states that the problem only occurs on NT, not Windows 95. I have checked the version of the Outllib.dll file in any case as advised by the article and we are currently using the most up-to-date version.

I have tried reinstalling the software on some of the offending PC's but the problem still occurs.

hi i created a simple form with typical text field and an image (which i hope will change accordingly to the id). it works okay till i added:

Private Sub Form_Current()
End Sub

in VBA, and this is the popup error i get:

"the expression on current u entered as the event property setting produced the following error: a problem occured while microsoft aoffice access was communicating with the OLE server or activex control."

with further explanation:
"This error occurs when an event has failed to run because Microsoft Office Access cannot evaluate the location of the logic for the event. For example, if the OnOpen property of a form is set to =[Field], this error occurs because Access expects a macro or event name to run when the event is fired."

but i cant figure out how to solve.

while my intention is to set something like this:

Private Sub Form_Current()
Me.ImgCtrl.Picture = "C:\images\" + Me.specialid + ".jpg"
End Sub

If i remove the oncurrent, everything works okay except the image part.

pls helppppppppppp...

Answer:Access 2007 form problem...

Keep the Image Field, but delete the reference to the Image Source, which will taken care of by your VBA.
I have posted quite a few Access 2000 databases that use that principle, here is one of them, see Post #18

and another here, also Post #18

DoCmd.OpenForm stDocName, , , stLinkCriteria

The problem with this is the form opens, but the CustomerID (Foreign Key) is set to "0"

Is there a way of passing the ID the the opening form?

I joined this forum because I just got Windows 7 Professional x64 and a 120G SSD and am having issues booting from the SSD.

I've installed Windows 7 fine on the SSD without any other hard drive connected to the MoBo (SSD is SATA 6 Gb/s). The SSD is booting on its own like a dream, so I know there is nothing wrong with the SSD or my Win 7 installation.

My conundrum is that when I connect my old hard drives (3) (not wiped, one still has Win XP installed) to get my docs and stuff off them, I can't boot to my SSD. I Turn the PC off, connect the old drives to Sata ports 2, 3, 4 (SSD is Sata 1 6Gb/s) and turn the PC on, my computer now wants to boot from my old drives and trys to boot XP.
So I reboot and check the BIOS to configure the boot sequence but my SSD is not showing in the boot sequence, just the old HDD, it normally (with no other drives connected) shows the SSD in the boot sequence.
Next it disconnect the old HDD's, and run disk manager once booted Win7 and check to make sure the SSD is active, which it is.

I reconnect the old HDD and nothing changes. I even disconnect the drive with XP installed on it but still cannot see my SSD in the boot sequence with the other old HDD's connected.

I am now lost and searching forums where I have ended up here for looking for someones expert advice. lol

Also, I've checked my BIOS drive settings and SATA is IDE not Raid or AHCI.

If anyone could be of assistance I'd really appreciate it.

Answer:Problem Booting Win7 x64 form SSD

I'd imagine that if you really needed the data on your IDE HDDs, you could always connect them via a USB, FireWire or eSATA external device after booting up in Windows 7 Pro on your SSD.
