Msacces update queries not updating
You can close down the Microsoft Visual Basic window.
When the same data is required a few days, weeks, or months later, all too often users will find out too late that they forgot to save that nearly perfect query or that they had previously pulled the results they want with one of the experimental queries, resulting in more experimenting to get the same data.To set the value of Textbox2 based on the value entered in Textbox1, you need to place your VBA code on the "After Update" event of Textbox1. When the Choose Builder window appears, highlight Code Builder. In Microsoft Access 2003/XP/2000/97, how can I apply a conditional format on a text box?I want to change the background color to red from white when the text box has not been filled in (null value). Because you are trying to change the format of a text box based on whether it has been filled in or not, you can not use the traditional conditional formatting that Access provides. We want to change the background color of the Contact Title text box if the user has not filled in a value. First, you want to view the properties for the Form. A button with three dots should appear to the right. When the Choose Builder window appears, highlight "Code Builder" and click on the OK button.The answer is, because ACE/Jet SQL syntax is not SQL-92 compliant (even when in its ANSI-92 Query Mode! JOIN syntax but at least SQL Server supports the Standard scalar subquery as an alternative.
ACE/Jet forces you to either learn its quirky non-portable ways or to use an alternative SQL product.
The solution to this problem is to write a sub-query in the FROM clause to retrieve all the qualified distinct records, then in the outer query in the SELECT statement, do a count for the number of records returned by the sub-query.
In the query below, we first get all the distinct records in the sub-query (inner query) in the FROM clause for Reports To column.
What you need to understand is that in Access-speak all SQL DML is referred to as a 'query' e.g. ACE/Jet has its own quirky and flawed ed values to be scalar and it is free to silently use an arbitrary value.
you get folk saying seeming oxymoron such as 'an update query' when they are referring to an update SQL statement.? It is different again from SQL Server's own UPDATE..
In Microsoft Access 2003/XP/2000/97, what VBA code do I use to set the value of a textbox based on the value of another textbox?
