Preferred Solution: Where to dwonload qbasic form this website?

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 http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi, Been going nuts installing various codec things that don't seem to be working! WMP11 wont recognise the films I have downloaded (some of them yes and others no). Also, when I tried to play the dvd on my tv-dvd player it said 'unknown disc'.
Is there anything thats free that I can use to try fix this?
Please help, going mental and almost ready to throw this damn thing out the window and take up reading again! :cry:cry:cry

Thank you.

Answer:Is this laptop powerful enough to dwonload movies?

Your download speed is dependant upon your internet connection speed not your pc.

Even after I got my new SSD it spedup everything but when bringing up the Download folder it super slow at adding up all the file details and icons. It's weird because this only happens in this folder while browsing in file explorer. Even my picture folder loads faster.

The number of files in any Folder and sometimes subFolders with their files can impart a slowness as they are being listed.

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.

Thanks

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.

Why not just use a simple HTML form ?

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

I am using WebEasy Professional 6 to design my website. I have inserted a form on my 'contact us' where clients can submit comments, however these comments display in html format when I view it in my inbox (Microsoft Outlook). Does anyone have any suggestions to correct this? Thanks!
 

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.

when i try to run the thing, so i can debug it, it highlights the word CASE in line 50 and brings up a prompt that says "TYPE mismatch" w/ the standard ok or help at the bottom. The help doesnt tell me anything. and it says ERR code:13 at the bottom. Is it that i cant use a text string with case select?

Your post will get just as much attention in this one as it would in a programming forum- this is because most of our users find posts through the "active topics" shortcut.

What compilers have you tried? They may be choking because you're using XP, and Qbasic is pretty old.

Hi, I had a floppy disk that had a bunch of little programs I made in qbasic and I can't seem to find it. does anyone have a program that displays circles in random spots and is random color or if someone could give me the code for it that would be great. I just want random circles all over the screen, so that way I can perhaps use it as a screen saver or something. I also want to knwo if anyone has good links for source code for like other little programs like this anywhere.
 

Answer:Need Some Qbasic Code

Did I jog your memory?

I've got a feeling ive got the code for it somewhere, but it might be at school. It used a drawcircle function that I wrote to simplify things. You could do both filled and hollow circles.

Have a look at this for compilers :

Answer:Qbasic subtotals

Either declare WH as a string (Dim WH as string * 4) at the start or tag the little dollar sign on the end every time you use it. Right now the system is reading it in as an integer, and comparing it to the string "0". Read it in as string and it should work fine for both the 0 and the real codes.

As to Subtotalling it, I'm a little confused because the section you've labled WH (Which I am presuming is meant to mean Warehouse) is unique for each item. Indeed I'd have supposed that to be a unique identifier, and the column you've called stock to be the Warehouse number. (since you have a different QTY field with much more random numbers.)

If it is meant to be as you've labled it, it looks impossible since you'd just get one item in each storehouse. If however my impression was correct, I'd do the following: Variable names are unchanged.

Declare an integer array with four places called totalitems (dim totalitems(4) as integer)
Declare an integer array with four places called TotalQTY (Dim TotalQTY(4) as integer)
Forget about the If Then Statement. Keep the Print USING and the read statement, but nothing about Total, WH, or HoldWH.
Increment the total number of item types in the wareHouse labled Stock (TotalItems(Stock) = TotalItems(Stock) + 1)
Update TotalQTY likewise (TotalQTY(Stock) = TotalQTY(Stock) + QTY)
At the end use a FOR NEXT loop to print out the info for each warehouse (For X = 1 to 4: Print "Warehouse"; X, ... Read more

I got bored a couple minutes ago and I wanted to make a program while my friend and brother played video games. I was trying to make a very simple number guessing game where a random number from 0-10 was generated using the RND command and then multiplying that by 10. Well it turns out that when I went to make it tell the user whether or not he/she has guessed to high or too low or right on the money. I am trying to use the If...Then command and the ELSEIF command. Whenever I go to run it though it says that there is a type mismatch in the comparing part of the program. This is so simple I bet that someone could just post the source code for this type of thing right away

Question: QBasic? On Vista?

Hey, I was just wondering if it is possible to use QBasic on Vista Ult 64-bit. My current school is doing a project which uses QBasic. I am on a late schedule and do not have time to finish it at school. So I really need to finish it off at home. Any help?

Answer:QBasic? On Vista?

Hi JinkoMk,

Vista does not support 16 bit or DOS programs, but you can workaround this by installing DOSBox first and using QBasic in it.

Question: Qbasic alternative

I have written many programs in qbasic which I use regularly. With the advent of improved PC's they are not very good,as the display is poor and printing is by a around route as the program does not see the USB port. At the moment I am using an old m/c running Win98 and my printer is an old Epson with an LPT1 socket. This obviously cannot be continued indefinately and I am looking for a modern viable alternative to QBasic. The programs contain mainly mathematical fla. and interpolate data from arrays

Question: Vista and Qbasic

Hi,

I just recently got vista and im fairly new with it. Now im in highschool taking computer programming one and we're using QBasic, and its something id like to have at home so i can work on projects and all that. So i tryed downloading QBasic and ofcourse it doesnt work, so i was kinda reading around that it has to be ran through a dox box? Im not really familiar with all that. I know im not the most tech savvy, im the kind of person that knows how to do things, but cant explain it. haha So if anyway can give me a sort of "its soo easy a monkey can do it" explanation, id be very thankful.

Answer:Vista and Qbasic

What you are looking for is a DOS box. The reason is that QBasic requires DOS to run, and Vista no longer has the 16-bit version of DOS. This (http://www.dosbox.com/) might help you.

I have been gone for a while but im finally back, i just wanted to say hey before i jumped right in and asked about my problem. I recently joined the highschools computer programming team and we unfortunatly use QBASIC for our competitions. I am familiar with it because i used it before i upgraded to windows 2000 but when i upgraded i never bothered installing it cuz i had MatLAB and Visual Basic. I wanted to start useing it at home again for the practice so i busted out the good old windows 95 cd and copied the "Oldmsdos" folder to my computer. when i click to open Qbasic it opens fune but it stays in a very small window and none of the menues work, when i click on them nothing happens. Also when i click on exit the program it comes up with the "End Program" dialog box. I dont understand why we would do this because our schools computers also use Windows 2000 and they have no problems. Thanks alot for the help and i hope to see u around the forums.
 

Answer:QBASIC and windows 2000

option #1 the easy way

alt+enter

option #2

ok here's what you do.

make sure you have qbasic.exe and qbasic.hlp

if you have a qbasic.pif shortcut file, delete it.

now double-click on the qbasic file and it will load in the stupid small window.

then right click on the title bar, left click on properties and in options, change the display options to full screen. I applied "to this screen only".

Then your mouse may freeze. that's ok. press esc a few times to clear the qbasic dialog box. then press alt to get to the file menu. The use the file menu to exit.

This will create a new pif shortcut and when you click on qbasic.exe, it will open in full screen and the mouse will work.

of course it doesn't always save the settings, even if you choose to save settings for future windows.

you can also adjust the window width on the layout tab.

so even if it doesn't save the settings, at least you can make it full screen each time. It will be annoying having to change it everytime, but it's not that bad.

here is more info

Answer:Solved: Qbasic troubple plz help

Welcome to TSG!

Been a while since I've used qbasic, but the problem is the format string.
Should be something like this:
D1$ = "\ \ # \ \ ###.## ###.## ##"
To display a string, you use & to display the entire string. To control the length, you use \\ to position the first and last character of the string. You add spaces in between to control the length.
The SKU$ is a 4 character string. To display it completely, you need to use \ \ (2 spaces between the slashes).
Your Description will only display 3 characters of the description, so you need to add some spaces there. Then you can adjust the spacing of the rest so everything lines up under the column headings

You also need to specify the decimal point, or you won't see the cents portion of the cost/price.

I'm running this in QB64 for the "environment" if thats the right term.

Here is my code: (I added the "LET number = 5 after I posted this)
LET number = 5
PRINT "Guess which number I'm thinking of! It's between 1 and 10!"
PRINT "You get 3 guesses."
INPUT "First guess"; number
IF number = 5 THEN GOTO correct
IF number <= 4 THEN GOTO toolow
IF number >= 6 THEN GOTO toohigh
INPUT "Second guess"; number
IF number <= 4 THEN GOTO toolow
IF number >= 6 THEN GOTO toohigh

IF number <= 4 THEN GOTO toolow
IF number >= 6 THEN GOTO toohigh

toohigh: PRINT "That's too high, try again! "

This is doubly true for VB for DOS which I messed with a little bit.

Greetings.

I am having problems using QBasic's [remember those times :-)] OUT function. There is no output on my parallel port (LPT1). I'm running Windows XP and I tried the same thing on Windows 95 and it worked.

Any Suggestions?

Any help you can provide on this issue is appreciated.

Answer:QBasic's OUT function under Windows XP

The best way to explain this, from what i can put together, is that windows 95 allowed real-mode access to hardware, meaning that it would let software have direct access to your hardware, bypassing OS and going through the kernel.

Windows XP, in the footsteps of NT, 98, ME and 2000, uses protected-mode drivers, which basically means that software has to address the Shell and the Kernel, and does not talk directly to the hardware. QBASIC would have had to have provisions to go through the print spooler in XP.

Basically, 95 is like a kid unsupervised turning the stove on(he has direct access to the stove). NT, 98(se), ME,2000 and XP, however, is like a parent saying, "Are you sure you want to turn on the stove? You could get burnt. "

Hope this explains roughly how it works. If not, then I'll try to explain it better

I have 3 or 4 small QBasic programs (compiled executables, not BAS source) that I use to run on my Win ME platform by simply double clicking on the file (using Explore). No problem.

Now, when I do that the program runs (executes) in a Command Line window and then disappears. It's so fast that I can't read the results (Print to screen).

It begins to run and waits for me to type in the name of the input file, but as soon as I do that and press Enter, it barely flickers and then disappears.

Any suggestions as to how I can get Win XP to not close the window until I have a chance to read the output screen?

Thanks
 

Answer:Running QBasic Executables in Win XP

open a command prompt window (Start --> run --> cmd) and navigate to the files and run them from there, this will leave the window open so you can scroll up and read what you need too.

The other option is to run the program and pipe it to a text file using ">"

palin1$ = MID$(palin$, count, 1)+palin1$

I'm not sure which section to place this question so I'm starting here.

I'm trying to teach my son the basics of programming, but to my horror I've discovered that I've forgotten almost everything I learned back in school. I worked him up to a password program. I have everything working fine and have compiled an EXE for it. It works great, however I have one question...

How would you make the program blank out the line where you type in the password? He wants to make it so that when you type in the password nobody can see what you're typing. Instead of the letters coming up he would like Enter Password:***** or black on black writing. Any ideas? I've tried the COLOR command, but it won't work with the INPUT command without blanking everything. Here is the code for the program;

chkpass$ = "apple"

START:
CLS
LOCATE 5, 5

INPUT "Enter Password: ", password$

IF password$ = chkpass$ THEN
GOTO AccessGranted

ELSE
CLS
BEEP
LOCATE 5, 5
PRINT "Password Incorrect, Access Denied."
SLEEP 4
END IF
GOTO START


AccessGranted:

I have an old QBASIC program which gives me a graphical display of some data in which I am interested.Now, under Windows XP Pro, the program seems to run OK but the output remains on-screen for less than a second before minimising to the Task Bar. I can get it back from the Task Bar, but only momentarily.Other QBASIC programs seem (so far) to run normally.can anyone suggest what I can do to make the display available to me?PeterC

Answer:QBASIC output automatically minimises

Are you using Start > Run, typing cmd and pressing Enter to get the Command Prompt before accessing your program?Or are you typing your program name (or qbasic) into a Run window?

I have some programs written in a version of BASIC issued under MSDOS.(QBASIC) I want to be able to use these programs under Windows without loading the DOS prompt. I also want to be able to produce a compiled version of these programs that could work under Windows What would you recommend?Thanks.

Hi all I'm in programming 101 and use Qbasic run with dosbox

The problem is that I can't type a lot of the punctuation into Qbasic. such as equal sign and some others so I have to use notepad to do a lot of the typing

Is there a fix for this I have an hp laptop dv6-2066dx with windows 7 home premium 64-bit thanks

I have an old Qbasic program which I made for myself. It runs with GWBASIC.EXE in the directory where the executable is placed. Until now I could run the program in a DOS box in XP. But when I try to run the program under 64 bits Vista I get an incompatibility message. Does anyone know a solution for Vista and later on for W7

Answer:running old Qbasic programs under Vista X64

I'm pretty sure that QBasic and GWBasic are 16-bit programs. There's no way that those will run directly under 64-bit Windows. The best you can do is use an emulator, as you are already doing.

I'm making a graphics demo in QBasic, and I'm having some troubles making it display some text I want.
So, I want to display this
The "place-read" mode has been turned on.Click to expand...

To do this, one would assume just do this.

Code:
PRINT "The "place-read" mode has been turned on."
But that doesn't work, because then QB assumes that place-read is a arithmatic string 'cuz the "s surrounding it make it a variable/command string. So, how do I display "s without ostracising what they surround from normal text?
... and yes, I am proud that I only know QB and HTML scripting. I don't mind being oldschool.
 

Answer:PRINT the " symbol in QBasic

Just try this :

Code:
[SIZE=3][B]
LET Q$ = CHR$(34)
LET T$ = "The " + Q$ + "place-read" + Q$ + " mode has been turned on."
PRINT T$[/B][/SIZE]
34 is the decimal value of the ASCII code of "

Please excuse me if I am asking a question which has already been answered. I have found that the accuracy of calculation in Fortran and Qbasic is not good enough for my needs. I am using Windows XP, and the inbuilt calculator in that is good, but I cannot get the same accuracy in my programme.
The problem is adding 5.92719e24 to 1,000 (or to 1,000,000) . The calculator does this fine, but both Fortran and Qbasic get it wrong. The correct answer is 5,927,190,000,000,000,000,001,000
(or 5,927,190,000,000,000,001,000,000) .
Fortran gives 5.97219d+24 for both answers, while
Qbasic gives 5.972189887017193d+24 for both answers. Note that Qbasic has given a smaller result than both original numbers. What is going on, why are the calculations not being done correctly?
I am fully (I think) conversant with Qbasic, but not very familiar with Fortran.
If it is not against forum rules, I would appreciate an answer by email as well as on this forum. The reason is I am not familiar with forum usage, and may not be able to find this forum page again.

Thank you.
 

Answer:Fortran or Qbasic calculator accuracy

Not a reply, an addendum.
In Qbasic, I changed exponent references from eg 1.234e24 to 1.234d24 . This gave me a bit more accuracy, the result is now correct if I add 1d10 or greater to 5.97219d24 . Can I achieve greater accuracy than this?
I can also find this forum again, so no problem with replies.

Thanks.

i have a thread in the correct place its just that nobody goes there and i need help tonite, not tomorrow

i have an exam, and i'm a little shady on some parts, and i need some help about setting up a program to do the following:

-read a file (sequential or randomize access) I KNOW HOW TO DO THIS PART
-dump info into an array
-edit the array (adding or deleting)
-write to the file opposite of what is read (i.e if seq. is made, write RA) I CAN DO THIS TOO

if somebody could pseudocode a little piece that would be helpful ...i dont care which choice you choose in the parenthesis

thank you

Yeah, I know, it's a dead language, but I have a craving to learn more!

I have 3 BSAVEd graphics that are BLOADed into a file. I'm using PUT statements to display them. The problem is the fact that each graphic is stored in a different array, which means 3 different arrays, and I'm using a random number to call a set of IF...THEN...ELSE statements which call a certain PUT statement based on the number. I was wondering if there was a way to call a single PUT statement, with a certain array as the target array based on the random number. I'm only using 3 graphics (which will eventually grow larger over time), so I'm basically just asking for code optimization, if that's possible.
Here is the code (note the redundancies when you look at the PUT statements):
Code:
SCREEN 13
CLS

DIM blbelt(901) AS INTEGER, blmage(937) AS INTEGER, fighter(937) AS INTEGER

I have upgraded to Windows XP from Windows 98 SE and wish to continue writing, and using my old, programs in QBasic.I know that QBasic can be downloaded from the website click here but whereto? I have prepared a MS-DOS Startup floppy disc as recommended by Windows XP, but the procedure to be followed thereafter is not described.Please can anyone offer any help!RegardsKen Taylor

Answer:Installing QBasic with Windows XP Home Edition

Although I am still running Win 98SE I have qbasic running on my PC. I made a Folder called Basic and downloaded it to there. All my "basic" programmes that I still use are also in the same folder. Give it a try. Make a Folder called "Basic" or "Qbasic" on your hard drive and download to there. Because XP doesn't use DOS don't know whether it will work, but it is worth a try.

OK...

So, we are trying to output/input using the parallel port to create an led which turns on when the door of a model house is opened, thus activating the security system. Then in doing this would turn off the lights with something like a command programmed to, for example "reset", and all the lights would turn back off..

Thank-you for your time and help...

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.

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!

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 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.
