Access Announcements From time to time we (Access MVPs) get information from the Access Team at Microsoft about what is happening with Microsoft Access.

When clients report issues or forum members ask questions, we often need to ask which version of Access/Windows/Office they are using. Unfortunately, MS doesn't provide all the info in an accessible form that can be exported to a text file or similar. I have created a utility that gets all the important info and displays it on a form:...

Remember that the people here helping you are not getting paid. They have no real incentive to help you beyond the desire to help others generally. So, if you make it difficult for them to help, there is a good chance they will just skip your thread and go on to the next one. So, how do you ask a good question? There are a few rules: ...

Hello, I am working on a project for my department to design a form to calculate budgets. I really don't know much about access or programming in general. At this point, I am trying to design a form where I can add fields to a table. (At least I think this is what I want to do). The form currently has a text box for each category of...

Like your mother-in-law that visits too often, I am back. :-) I have two tables, two forms. The primary key of table 1 is a foreign key in table two. I have a button on form one that opens form two and it should take the ID autonumber field from the first form and populate the ID field on the second form (and get stored in the table too). ...

S**t for brains strikes again! Why did I do that? When I met the clients and at some point they vaguely asked whether eventually would it be possible to have some people who could read the data and some who couldn't but that it wasn't important right now. And I said, 'sure, we can do that later'. So now I've developed an app without any...

Whenever I've created junction tables in the past, I always made the PK of the junction table the combined pks from the two other tables. Ex: Table1 PK=A; Table2 PK=B; Junction table consists of two fields, A and B, which together comprise the PK for the junction table. However, I just came across some code in which the person created a...

At this moment I use MsAccess and i can build about every databound application i want. Who knows about a serious open source alternative? Because Windows will be a client platform for some time, i prefer a solution that (also) supports Windows. On the net I found a number of products that i looked at, but none of them gave me the impression...

Most of the reference books recommend autonum primary keys, but the Access help says that any unique keys will work. What are the tradeoffs? I have several tables that have unique fields. Can I use them as primary keys or should I define an autonum primary key? One table has information about the 50 states in the US. The table looks...

Our IT guys are on a vendetta against MS Access (and Lotus Notes but they've won that fight). What I can't understand is, what's the problem? Why does IT hate MS Access so much. I have tried to find out who it is that actually wants to get rid of it, but I can't find anyone who will admit to trying to get rid of it. Nevertheless, I'm...
