Skip address field if previous field is blank

Question: Skip address field if previous field is blank

I have an access 2007 database that has fields for several addresses. I would like to have access skip subsequent address fields if the previous field is blank. I have done this before but for the life of me cannot remember how it was done. Thanks.

I am working on a database that stores genus, species, and variety I want to sort the data with genus, then species, then variety.

Now the tricky part. Sometimes there is no species. When this is the case, I want the database to sort that record off of variety.

I have though of a way to do this, but need help with the code.

If I make a species2 field, I could create an expression that would look at the species field. If the species field is empty, it could copy the data from variety. If it is not empty, then copy the data in the species field.

Once the species2 field has the updated data, I could then do a sort

genus, species2, variety

The report would have genus, species and variety showing and species2 would be checked off to not show in the report.

I am using Microsoft Access 2000.

Any help would greatly be appreciated.

Answer:Access - if field is blank, copy field A, if not copy field B

You should not actually need another field to do this, just another column in your report's Query. Something like this as a Field header :-

dummySpecies: iif(isnull([species]), [genus], [species])

this should provide a column with the species in if it there and the genus if it is not, which you can use in place of your actual species field in the report for sorting.

I use due dates on my Outlook tasks. When I customize my Tasks list (in the Calendar view) to group by due date, I just get too many groupings (one for each due date!). I would like to know if I can create a custom field called 'Due Month' and/or 'Due Week', extracted from the 'Due Date', so I can view my tasks by what is due during a given week or month. If the answer is yes, any suggestions on the technique I would use would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,

I have a table titled time_slips used to track the amount of time an attorney spends with a member. In the time_slips table there is a field titled reference_id which is a combo box pulling it's displayed information from another table titled references. Also in the time_slips table is a field named details which is native to this table.

My question is, can I have the details field auto-populate "no charge" when a certain reference id is selected (i.e. 300)?

I attached my database what i would like to do is create a form when an end user will enter a corresponding user ID from that I wish to populate textbox fields with Agent Name, Supervisor, Location, Dept *all seperate text boxes of course* I have attached the database if someone could help me do this it would be great. Let me know if you need any further details to help get me through this.

Answer:update field A in form based on entry in field b

Welcome to the forum, before answering you question can I suggest some improvements to your database.
Currently you do not have any "Key", "Indexed" fields in your tables and there are no relationships set up between the tables.
Also do you really need the Archive Table?
The data looks like it has been exported in from a spreadsheet, relational databases work quite differently to spreadsheets, so to make the most of their advantages you need to correctly relate your Tables.
Your UserID Roster also has some disconnect between the Field Names and the actual data in them, particularly the Name and Type feilds.
In the Supervisor Table the Birthdate does not seem to have Translated correctly.

I'm doing a quick-and-(very)dirty design as a proof of concept. During this process I fat-fingered the word Description, as Ddescription. No problem, I know what it means, right. But it annoyed me, so I changed the underlying table (where the error occurred), deleted the control from the form, and added the (now correctly spelled) control.

However, every time I try and ruin the form it wants a value for the now non-existent field Ddescription. I simpy click-through, and the form runs fine. When I look at the available fields in the form's View query's Field List, it still shows Ddescription, and i seems to think it's coming from the underlying table.

Any ideas on how I can remove this phantom field? I can't find anything called "The_View_for_form_FooBar" anywhere, but I know it must exist somewhere...

I support a software program that has a proprietary menu item when you right-click a calculated field. It has been this way for 10-15years and has worked in WinXP through Win10 with never an issue. This past week I had 3 different customers tell me that when they right-click one of these fields to access what is normally the Cut/Copy/Paste/ menu that also includes our menu item, they are now getting the Windows default cut/copy/paste/Right to Left Reading order/Show Unicode control characters/ etc menu. The only thing I can think of that they all have in common besides these are all Window 10 64bit pc's, is that they all have one update to Adobe Acrobat (17.012.20098).
I was able to resolve for a moment on two of these workstations by having the user go into Language/Advanced settings and actually selected "English (Unites States) from the "Override for Windows display language" even though that settings is implied by the "recommended". But after the pc was turned off over night and back to it the next day, the problem is back and that setting is still selected. All language and regional settings on all the pc's are defaulted to English/Unites States. I do not know what other avenue to go in. Could something hae been switched on or off in Windows (by this Adobe update perhaps?) that would make the context text menu switch to Windows text default right-click menu?

Any help is appreciated!

I have a table that has service information which is categorised as ServiceType, ServiceDescription, ServiceCode, etc. The are up to 200 unique ServiceDescription/ServiceCode enrties per ServiceType.

I am trying to create table for orders that will only allow ServiceType from a listbox. I then need service description to be listed as a listbox based on the selection made from service type. I then need the ServiceCode to show based on previous 2 selections.


ServiceType ServiceDescription ServiceCode
Cleaning Clean Dwelling 001
Skips Empty Skip 002
Skips Replace Skip 003
Skips Remove Skip 004
Scaffold Erect New 005

So if I select Scaffold from drop down, it only shows Erect New in drop down for description and once that is selected, 005 is autofilled for Code

Answer:Solved: Access - Lookup Based On Previous Field Result?

This is fairly easy to achieve. The easiest is with the queries supplying your 2nd & 3rd Combos.
Asuming that your ServiceDescription Table contains the ServiceType ID
and the ServiceCode Table contains the ServiceDescription ID.
Create a query for your ServiceDescription including the ServiceType ID.
Create a query for your ServiceCode including the ServiceDescription ID.
In the first combo Afterupdate event procedure requery the 2nd Combo.
In the 2nd combo Afterupdate event procedure requery the 3rd Combo.
The key to make it work is to enter in to the 2nd combo's query's Criteria row for the
ServiceType ID - forms![fromname]![combo().column(1)]
where the second column of the 1st combo is the ServiceType ID.
Repeat this for the 3rd combo and the ServiceDescription ID.

I know the Include Field will include part of the text from an Include File if it is in a bookmark. The format is {IncludeText "File Path" Bookmark}. I have 2 files: Source and Target.

Source is a form template. I included a Text Form Field and gave it the bookmark AA. I also included other text in a "normal" bookmark, BB.

In Target I have 2 fields: {IncludeText "C:\\" AA} and {IncludeText "C:\\" BB}. The text from BB shows up, but the one for AA is blank.

If I go into Source and look under Bookmarks, both AA and BB are there.

BTW, I have tried it with the Source form both "Protected" and "Unprotected" and it didn't make any difference.

Any idea why this is happening, and more importantly, any idea on how to make this work? If not, it seems like a real bug in Word 2003 as they are both definitely considered to be bookmarks.

Please consider this scenario and tell me what might have happened. My wife is a late-comer to computing, having only been using email (Outlook Express) for a few months. Yesterday she replied to an email from a friend. The friend alerted my wife to the fact that my wife's email had been copied to another person (a relative who is in my wife's email address book). My wife did not intend to Cc: the third person. No harm in it (message was innocuous chit-chat). But we're trying to figure out how this could have happened.

The only two possibilities I could imagine:

1) My wife somehow accidentally added the second recipient. I can't imagine how this could have occurred. She would have had to accidentally hit the "Cc:" button then accidentally scroll down the address list to the address in question. (The name isn't visible without scrolling.)

2) Some sort of virus that takes a message **that is actively being written** and randomly appends one address from the Address book to the "Cc:" field. I assume there are viruses that could pull a message from the Inbox or Sent directory, then add an address of its choosing (that it either supplies or pulls from the user's Address book), then sends the message. But what are the chances this could occur to a message that is being actively written? Ever heard of such? And what would be the motive/benefit to the virus-writer?

I'd appreciate anyone's insight re: (1) how an address f... Read more

Answer:Address added to email Cc: field

1) seems the more probable cause; it is often easy to add a CC address from the address list (for example) if you are not attending to what you are doing.
2. I don't see why a virus would WANT to do something like that; as you wrote, the motive for doing so seems unclear. If this has happened only once, and not on a regular and consistent basis,it would not be a virus. Just for ease of mind, though, you might want to test this by having her send several messages to your E-mail address to see if there is a unwanted CC and watch what she does when composing the test messages.

Hi guys,

Something weird is happening. Some of my movie files (file type doesn't matter) became corrupted; when I play them in VLC they cause errors, they were just fine before and nothing has changed. I noticed in Explorer that these files have no Date Modified field, it's simply blank; I've never seen anything like that.

I did a chkdsk on the drive and see no errors. What could it be ?


Answer:Blank Date Modified Field ?

VLC should rebuild the Index, but that is a temporary fix. Depending on what format they are, there is "DIVFIX" and "Meteor MKV repair" you can try to run the faulty content through which of those is appropriate, you'll have to google it, cant remember the links.

The emails I receive in OE6 show only the Sender's name in the FROM field. The Sender's email address is not shown anywhere. I don't have many Contacts (like 3 or 4) and so I thought OE6 was using the nicknames I'd given them in my Address Book, because they are my Contacts. But I've received mail from various people not on my Contacts list, and the FROM field just says their User name for their email account.

If "[email protected]" sent me an email, I would see:

The email address is not displayed anywhere.

It's funny, because my own email address shows up completely in the TO field.

What do I have to do to view the Sender's address? Right now the only way I can email people is to Reply to an email they've sent, even if it's a completely different topic and it's three months later!

I also want the blank space to work as such so I can drag-select 2-4 consecutive files in the list and quickly open them. I kind of have that part working with the checkbox viewstyle but its still too "sticky" and will sometimes only grab the first file I start on anyway.

My thanks to anyone who can ease my annoyance with Vista if but for a night.

I'm using Windows 7 and use both Chrome and Internet Explorer.

When I start to type a search term in IE the field goes blank after a few letters (or sometimes immediately). This is frustrating as I'm not a touch-typist and look at the keyboard while typing, then when I look up I find nothing has been entered. Chrome behaves perfectly in this regard.

Any ideas on the cause/remedies for this?

Question: Add new field


I have created a database to track applicants’ eligibility process.

So far, the database works fine and just recently, I was approached to add a new field ‘Source of Application’ where applicants learn about our program and the options are (Friend, School, Doctor, Advertisement, other) and to produce a ‘Source of Application Report’, how many from Friend, how many from School, how many from Advertisement etc. I’m using access 2003 and would like to know:

Question: BCC field

I have looked in the knowledge base and cannot find an answer to this one.In sending to a large group in the BCC field, if one of the recipients email addresses cannot be found, does this mean that none of the other recipients will receive it (the whole email not sent)?I say this because this looks as though this has just happened to me. Immediately I hit the send button an error message came up saying that it could not be sent because one particular address could not be found. There was nothing in my sent box to say that anything had been sent. I hit the send button again but exactly the same message came up (same rejected address).I am asking this because the group is made up of many people I have contacted over the past years - some of whom may probably now have new addresses. I was hoping that only the now non-existent email addresses would not be delivered (bounce back) but the other ones would be delivered.It looks as though I may have to send to each separately. Any help appreciated.Terry

Answer:BCC field

"In sending to a large group in the BCC field, if one of the recipients email addresses cannot be found, does this mean that none of the other recipients will receive it (the whole email not sent)?" No. The message would have to be sent in order to be rejected from the recipient's mail server.What email client are you using?

Question: Memo field

Good day all,

I'm having some issues getting a combobox to work with a memo field.

Master repository (table) = my data warehouse
Main (form) = drives data to Master Repository
Verbiage (table) = document types list in combobox on form Main. One of the 3 fields retrieved by the combobox, [Body], is a Memo field containing formatted wording to be used to generate a printed letter.

The combobox will return the correct field/data upon selection but it truncates the information in that field. I read that there might be some sorting and like field issues but I haven't been able to fix or work around the issue yet. Suggestions are greatly appreciated

Perhaps there might be other ways to achieve what it is that I would like to do. What I am trying to do is create the ability to generate a formatted letter hub of sorts. These are one-off letters that are produced at the time of data entry that will use information from the current record and from several tables.


Answer:Memo field

How many Characters are you trying to display in the Combo from the memo field?
There is a 255 character limit for the columns of Combjo box fields.
You can however display those characters but then use the whole of the table field's data by using VBA code to retrieve the data either using dlookup or a recordset.
Or if the user needs to see all the data you can use an unbound memo field to display the same data in full.

When I first got the PC, I installed the UT3 demo to see how it handled. On full settings I didn't encounter one single trip in framerate, as with all the other games on it. When I bought the full game today, I installed it fine, ran it and it literally wouldn't display it on anything other than 800x600. whereas before it ran perfectly on 1280x1024. Note that I am running a dual screen system. One at 1280x1024, the slightly worse quality one at 768x1024.

Answer:Problems in the field...

Did you try installing the latest patch for the game? There's been a few releases already, there's a good chance that the latest patch will fix it. Other than that, be sure you have the absolute latest drivers, sometimes when a new game comes out, companies release drivers that day, because they're optimized for certain game fixes.

One of my agencies changed their name and I want to know what is the best way to change the name in the whole database, including queries and reports

Answer:change field name

Ouch...that depends. If your queries have links based on their name, you will have to make the change in a table and fix all those broken links. But if they (and reports) just show the name in relationship to a code, you can change their name in the main agency table (or wherever that info is kept) and they should all be updated automatically.

I am at a crossroad and do not know which direction to go. I got my Associate's degree in IT a few years ago and never really did any more than that. I am in the process right now of trying to set up a small network in my house, to get some real world experience, but education wise I am not sure which direction to go. If I get my Bachelor's degree it would have to be from some where online because I already work full-time and I am looking at getting a part-time job in the evening as well plus I have two small children. The other route I have been looking at is going to the local community college next to my house for some online certification programs they offer such as Cisco or a general networking certification. My company is willing to reimburse me up to $3000 a year towards my education plus I qualify for Pell grants as well which would make paying for a degree easier but I don't know really which would be best at this time.

I have done a little of everything on my own, and I am now looking to get focused in an area. I would really like to work in our NOC but I don't which education form would benefit me the most.

Answer:Need advice from those in the field...

If you're just looking for a job in the NOC as a network technician or whatnot, Network+ --> CCNA --> (maybe) CCNP certification may be the way to go. Will your company cover certification costs?

If you have two kids, a full time job, a Bachelor's will probably take way more than two years to finish (that's assuming you can transfer all your credits from the Associate's Degree). Doing a good certification path and getting some experience along the way would probably put you in a better position in the short run. The certification path has more of a focus on teaching you how to perform tasks than teaching you how to think in a certain mindset - and vice-versa for the bachelor's degree.

It's kind of a hard question to answer, but in my opinion if you're focusing on a certain type of IT job, school might not be the answer.

Box has "video card must have 128 mb or more memory and one of the following chipsets Nvidia GeForce FX 5700 or greater and ATI Radeon 8500 or greater"

Now I have the radeon 9250 256ddr and guess what ? the game will not run. It plays the intro video fine, which is awesome by the way then up pops the vpu error.

Now my dilemma is. I DO NOT HAVE an agp port available, this computer does not have an agp slot, I do however have the pci slots. I have been told that there are NO PCI video cards that battlefield 2 will support. SO as you can see I am need of assistance on this. I have already e-mailed EA games which makes Battle field 2 where I have NOT received a reply as of yet. Some how I have the feeling they are going to tell me that my video card is not supported. Hmm let's see, it said ATI Radeon 8500 or greater, isn't 9250 greater than the 8500 ? I guess someone counts backwards.

So is there anyone that can shed some light on this for me such as, 1) do they make pci video cards that are supported by battlefield2 and 2) is there anyway for me to get this game to run with my existing video card ?

thanks guys.
