Access web-query problem

George Tekos
47 New Member
I wish someone could help me on the following.
My target is to choose a value from a combobox (ok with that) and pass that chosen value as a criteria to a web-query.
When I type to the criteria box>>
=[Forms]![formThatContain sTheCombobox]![NameOfComboBox]<<
and save and close, the thing works ok. The query runs and the report is accurate.
If I published the db on my sharepoint site and try to access it, its is not working. It says somehting about invalid reference to expression. Ofcourse if i removed this expression, the database is displayed properly on the web but of course the query returned all the records (and not filtered by my choise in the combobox).
I swear i been infront of my computer more than three days because of that, so you can tell how useful an information would be.

Yes, second option is best. You can use infopath for customizing default form (Provided by Sharepoint list) or if you want to send your form through email. But just check, if the default form created by shrepoint list is okay with you, then follow the procedure I suggested in my last post.

Well i am working with infopath by the moment. Ive done something like a trick (according to my level of experience) because of infopath form cant open directly when typing the sites url, i created an empty access webDB to take advantage of its "navigation form" ..you know that, right? so in the form i put a photo for the design thing, and a link to the infopath form i created and this form is the one that submits data to the sharepoint list. Unfortunately i cannot get to work the form that will submit data..i have a problem with the query procedure..can you help me on that???
:) thank you friend

Please write more about Problem in Query procedure. Because just mentioning 'problem' is not sufficient enough.

i dindnt want to ask you the question, before i knew how if you wer available..so now i will explain you,
i want to create a form in which i will be able to choose the DATE (from a dropdown box) press a button (that engages the query) and show up the results that refer to the pre-selected DATE value. (to the extra text boxes will have inserted before)...
i know how to make the dropdownbox show the DATE values...the thing i dont know is, HOW TO create a query that its parameter is being passed by the DATE dropdown box...i hope it was clear, and sorry for my english.

Dear George,
e.g. If you create a form (Dialog, set its Modal property to 'Yes')
Create a Combobox (e.g. Combo1) for DATE.
In your query (design view), You can type following under "Criteria" :
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. [Forms]![Dialog]![Combo1]
This will show result according to date chosen in the form.
But, your original problem was that when you were doing samething (mentioned above)in sharepoint web database, that time you were facing problem. is that issue resolved?

so you probably talk about Access. to set the following parapameter [Forms]![Dialog]![Combo1] means that i have to PUBLISH my whole database to the share point site, first. When I do this (Publish & Parameter) the form is not working on the site.(Im talking about Access).
If I just EXPORT my table to the sharepoint site (so it is not places in FORMS, but as a LIST, i cannot find where to set the parameters from.
1) basic question: Do i have to PUBLISH, just EXPORT table, or both?
2) second Question: after that, how do i create a form that recceives data using a DATE combo(take the existance of the combox, for granted)

thank you very much

1. First, export just tables to sharepoint site as lists
2. Then create linked tables from the same site
3. Then you can create queries, forms etc. just like a normal database.
4. If you still didn't understand this, pl. let me see your database and I'll guide you further.

ive done this before..but..
1)i create a WEBdb and export it as list on sharepoint site. OK
2)open a new WEBdb and right click on the table> import>from sharepoint list OK choose the LINKED TABLE at the next dialog box and the linked table is created OK
3)a))CREATING A FORM: i click ONCE on the linked table, go to "CREATE" tab, choose "WEBFORM">>>can not create a web form based on a source that is not web compatible..... . <<<<<<
b))CREATING A QUERY: i click ONCE on the linked table, go to "CREATE" tab, choose WEB QUERY", opens, the box I choose , tables,queries, all, is empty...
if i choose the NON WEBform or query, it works, but no way to present it in a website, it is not web compatible..
which db should i send you?? the one with the linked table? you wont be able to open it, it asks for connection credentials...
