Microsoft Access - Recalling data on a form for editing
Asked By Bob on 16-May-12 04:03 PM
When a blank form opens (automatically) for entry of the next record, I want the user to have the option of calling up another record, in case it needs to be edited. The "search" and "go to" buttons do nothing: the data flashes in the fields, and then instantly disappears. I really cannot believe that Access provides no simple way of searching for a record and showing it in the proper form. So I assume I'm missing something very basic. What is it? Thanks, Bob

I'm sorry, but I cannot accept your answer. The people at Microsoft are not fools. There has to be a simple answer to my problem. The "go to" and search" buttons are not working, which suggests that I have done something wrong with the controls, perhaps. It should not requre programming to make them function. Nor should it be necessary to add code to make the data appear in the fields. Where is Pat Hartman?

Have you tried puttting a button on the form, and tying it to a macro that toggles DataEntry mode:
Private Sub btnToggleDataEntry_Click()
Me.DataEntry = Not Me.DataEntry
Once you take dataentry mode off, you should be able to filter or change the recordset as needed to find the desired record.

Try below example Code:
intResponse = MsgBox("Login another sample with same data? Clicking No will create a new blank record, click Cancel to quit login.", vbYesNoCancel)
If intResponse = vbYes Then
'code here to continue login of new record with same data as previous record
ElseIf intResponse = vbNo Then
'code here to continue login with blank record
'code to quit login such as DoCmd.Close acForm, Me.Name, acSaveNo

When you open a form in DataEntry mode, the recordsource is limited to only those records you have entered since the form opened. Once you close the form and reopen it, the recordsource is empty again. That's why the search won't work.
If you want to use a form for both edit and add, it is better to not use DataEntry mode. Instead, open the form normally. Let the user use the search features to find a particular record or use the * on the scroll bar to go to a new record. If you prefer, you can add a New Record button.

Thanks, Pat. As usual, your answer responds directly to the question, and helps me (us) understand better how Access works as a program and product.

I had to use the following code in order a bmp file and 'activate' it, so that other users, when they open the pertinent form or report, would see the inserted signature. I found the solution for doing that online Me!VoucherStatus.SetFocus In the past, I've just left the image control on the form or report rather than inserting it. If there is nothing to display, just set .visible image path as necessary. It's not a static graphic file that is on the form and report. Rather, whichever user created and signed the voucher, that's whose signature needs I don't know that I have an answer to this. keywords: Outlook, SetFocus, SendKeys, Microsoft Access, Otherwise, database, report, image control, bmp file description: SendKeys in Microsoft Access I had

I have a form that I was able to scroll up and down the form but for some reason the scroll bars are no longer showing. I did check the properties of the form and the "scroll bars" are set to both? Any idea why they are no longer visible? My gut reaction would be to say. . . Make sure the form is set to "Auto resize = Yes" and the detail portion of the form is set
