Save button in Main Form and save it on to Subform and on the Table

3 New Member
Hello Sir, Im here again asking for help. I have a form and a subform relate to HVAC Windward Table. i have a SAVE button on the form that when clicked it saves data on the HVAC Windward Table but not in a subform. When manually inputing data into subform it saves by work order on the HVAC Windward Table in subdatasheet even if how many times i add data in one work order. Sir, Is it posible that when i clicked on the SAVE button in the form it saves the current data both on the HVAC Windward Table and to the subform as in same data in one work order, coz if the work order is "reschedule d" when i clicked SAVE button it will goes to subform and to the table and if re-entry the same work order is completed it will goes again in the subform and to the table, now there are two record in one work order in subform and to the HVAC Windward Table. Is there any code for this? Im using wizard to create SAVE command button and here's the code:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Private Sub Save_Record_Click()
  2. On Error GoTo Err_Save_Record_Click
  4. DoCmd.DoMenuItem acFormBar, acRecordsMenu, acSaveRecord, , acMenuVer70
  6. Exit_Save_Record_Click:
  7. Exit Sub
  9. Err_Save_Record_Click:
  10. MsgBox Err.Description
  11. Resume Exit_Save_Record_Click
  13. End Sub
Any help would be appreciated..th anks and god bless!

OK, first thing is, that you don't need a save record button on the main form. When the focus of the form changes to the subform the main form record saves automaticly.

One thing that I need to make sure that is setup correctly is the relationship between the main and sub forms.

if you get into the properties of the sub form and make sure the following fields are filled out.

Link Child Field
Link Master Field

These two fields are what links the main form to the sub form so the relationship between the information on the main form and the sub form are sync'd

then when you enter information on the sub form, and long as you go to an new records before you close, then that should autosave the subform records without the need for save or update buttons on the form.

I hope that helps,

I have a main form with a command button on it that when clicked, opens a subform displaying records that relate to the main form. I would like to disable the command button if the corresponding subform does not contain a record.

Any coding examples and suggestions would be very...

Hi, I have two very similar forms each with a subform. The main form gets a few fields from the user and passes this back to a query that the subform is bound to. The requery is done when the user enters the last qualifying field on the main form. In one case this works fine, the subform shows the data the user wants to update -- which means showing all the data put in previously (ie showing this via the requery and the continuous...

I'm trying to assign a custom value to a textbox. Here's what I have. I've created a module and "default value" code for a textbox which generates a custom auto-number (yyyy-0000) when a New Record button is clicked. The code checks the table for the highest value and then assigns 1 and inserts the value. I have a second text box which needs the same type of custom auto-number which has to be generated from a second command button. ...

I have a very nice parent child relationship happening between a main form and 8 subforms. The main form is the data entry point for a table that holds textual data like names, notes and the like. It also holds the primary key which is an alpha-numeric file designation. The subforms are the data entry point for another table that holds numeric values for time spent on tasks.

Hi there, I would like to put a button on my form that enables or unlocks the subform and at the same time disables (locks) the main form until the user is done with the subform. At that point the user would click a button on the subform that returns to the main form and re-disables the subform. In other words, enter data on the main form, click the button to go to the sub form. Main form "locks" (becomes disabled), now the user can enter...

Hi I've created a form that has 7 subforms. It is the same subform, bound to a table, just repeated. This form represents a week, and each subform is used to enter in data for each day of the week. The main form has a combo box that must have a value selected before anything else can happen. Once that value is selected, the 7 subforms are enabled, and also one of the fields is populated with the value from the main form. These subforms also...
