Adding numbers in a subform (Access 2000)

Q: Adding numbers in a subform (Access 2000)

About a year ago, I created an input form that contains a subform in which are listed all the contributions of a member of the organization. Under the subform -- IN THE MAIN FORM, not within the subform -- I had placed a field that summed the contributions for that individual, and another field that displayed the domain sum (DSum) for all contributions. Both have worked perfectly every since.

The field that sums the contributions for the individual used the formula "=[Contributions subform].[Form]![ContribSum]". The field that does the domain sum is "=DSum("Contribution","Contributions")+IIf(DSum("MatchAmt","Contributions") Is Not Null,DSum("MatchAmt","Contributions"),0). I removed the field "MatchAmt" from the table, and changed the DSum statement to just "DSum ("Contribution","Contributions").

After doing that, both field yield only "#Error". Part of my puzzlement is the field "ContribSum". It is not a field in either table, and is nowhere in either form. I haven't the foggiest where it is or why the formula refers to it. I tried using just "=Sum([Contributions.subform].Form![Contribution]), but that for some reason reports only the first contribution; doesn't add all of them up.

So my question is, how does one sum number fields in a subform in a field OUTSIDE of the subform/in the host form?


Preferred Solution: Adding numbers in a subform (Access 2000)

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Adding numbers in a subform (Access 2000)

Put the "=" back in front of DSum, so that it says this:

The "#Error" means that Access is trying to do some sort of operation that it can't pull off.

As for your sum question, it's cagey, unless you can program a little. The workaround is this:
In the subform, show the form footer. There should be a control there called ContribSub, I'm guessing, from your post. If not, make one.
Set its control source to


Once you're sure the subform sum is working, you can set the Visible property of the form footer to false. That way you don't see your total down there.
Now you can build a control source on the master form whose control source is set to

=[Contributions subform].[Form]![ContribSum]

As for why your other attempt wasn't working (the one that goes like "=Sum([Contributions.subform].Form![Contribution])"), you must remember that Access maintains only one "active" record at a time, per form or subform. So your control wasn't lying; I'll bet changing records in the subform would prove that. But it's only adding the total of the active record--this is the big difference from a report, where there are no active records.

Hope this helps. Let us know.

I'm just learning Access and am setting up a database where the Form has customer information and the subform shows their order details. There are only two fields in the subform, Product Name and Quantity. The product names are listed in a combo box. How do I enter more then one product order? I can add one entry but I need it so when I hit enter it gives me another line to enter another order.

I am attempting to create a subform in Access 2000 which links through a unique ID number to the main form. I've used the subform wizard to set this up and also looked into the properties.

The subform links to a table which stores records entered in through the form. The problem is that when I enter data into the form it doesn't "stick" or display once I exit the screen. If I check the backend tables the new record has been created and stored in the table but it won't display on the form.

I've tried looking at other subforms (made by someone else) but I'm not skilled enough in SQL statements to copy the SQL statement and modify it to get my subform to work.

Please help!!

Hi –
My problem in Access 2007 is with the Openform command button; executed from a Subform’s subform. Ie. Command button is nested on third level. [RecommendationID]=[Forms]![x01aTRACKING]![xx00Issues]![tbl_Recommendation subform]![ID]
​The form opens fine for record/data already stored in the database. For new [tbl_Recommendation subform] data, the form which opens does not go to the corresponding [RecommendationID], instead opens a blank form. I can however enter in the desired [RecommendationID] label, to which it will populate with correct data - I’d like to avoid this step. Have tried
Requery after Openform in the OnClick event of the ‘Main form’, also tried Requery on the OnOpen event of the new form with no success. Anyone have any ideas?

The old database has some customer details about these customers that I would like to have in my new database. I am having trouble adding the data from the table in the old database to the table in the new database.

So far I have imported the old table into my new database and have tried to Insert Into the New Customers table the CustDescriptions FROM the Old Customers table WHERE FirstName=FirstName And LastName=LastName And Address=Address. This did not work it just added new rows to my table instead of inserting the data into the current rows where the criteria matched.

Hi I have a small database for keeping track of my calls (I work in IT support) and it works fine. BUT I want to have a "Related Documentation" field, which stores one or more documents relating to the call record(i.e. manuals or Microsft KB documents), so that when I look up the call I will have a copy of any documents that I used.

NB. I DO NOT WANT TO LINK THE DOCUMENT. I have to have the document included in the database, and the field must allow more than one Word document to be included.

Any ideas.

Is there some way to make it so page numbers display on the printed pages of an Adobe .pdf file? I converted a Word document to .pdf, but the Word document did not have the numbered pages. I now want to add the numbers in Adobe Reader, but it looks like I'll have to go back to the original Word document, add headers which include the page number, and then re-convert it to .pdf. Is that correct? If I could do it within Adobe Reader, that would be preferable.

A:Adding Page Numbers to .PDF document

The file is a creation from an original Word file, the page numbers would need to exist in the Word file.

It would be a nightmare if in creating a PDF it was able to assign new printed page numbers as these would often not align with the original document and TOC's would be incorrect.

I have a new 11e laptop, 3rd Generation. Everything was working good. All of a sudden, the keyboard when typing only the middle row letters of "a,s,d,f, j, k, l, ;" a number will be added in front or to the back of the letter. All other keys are typing fine. I have checked for anything NumLock that could be related to causing this. Nothing in BIOS Set. Checked keyboard settings - the correct language is set. I tried to press FN+F11 and nothing. I turned on the online keyboard and clicked on NumLock there and turned it off, that did not fix it. I attached an external keyboard, that types fine. Turned on and off num lock, that did not fix it. I did a restore back to a date before it happened, that did not fix it. I just reimaged the laptop and that did not fix it. Any suggestions would be much appreciated!

i have a database i'm developing for a non-for-profit org offering courses to underprivileged kids between 04-19. the courses are split into 4 categories so i cannot just have one table for courses. the end user does not want this as courses are added to each category every term.

so the tables i have are students, cat1Courses, cat1StudentCourses, cat2Courses Cat2StudentCourses ETC..
i have subform in the cat1StudentCourses which allow me to asign students to courses in that category. they can have many courses. i am using look up wizard in this subform to select a course. but whenever i asign a course using the look up it adds a new course in the courses table creating a new record with new a course id so i have 2 course with same name in courses table. if i asign the course using the course id it does not create a new course in courses table.

Guten tag, all.

Anyone out there tell me how to do code to shrink a continuous-form subform on the fly in Acc2K?

That is, I have a search procedure which, depending on some configured options, should or should not show some controls on the subform which shows the search results. As space is limited, I'm trying to shrink the subform to show more records when those controls aren't in use.

Resetting the detail height of the subform doesn't work, perhaps because I'm not opening the form in design view first. Dunno.

Do you ??

n'backupd'othahside |-->

A:VBA/Access: shrink a subform

One of the big differences between VB and VBA is that you can do much more at runtime in VB. To change the design of an object in VBA you must be in design view which won't work at all if you plan on making an .MDE file.

What I would do in this case is to create two different subforms and use VBA to set the SourceObject of the subform control to switch between the subforms. If you want the current record to be the same when switching, create a variable in the main form which will hold the PK of the current record before the switch. After the switch use findfirst to re-select the current record. As far as the user is concerned, it will look like the design of the form just changed a little. You won't be able to tell that it's a different form!

Let me know how it works. Good Luck!

Fairly new to Access but I have managed to get this far. I have a database tracking prospects. The call results are listed in a DB named Calls and it is a subform in Contacts. The subform display is in Datasheet format. When I display a contact, it shows the correct calls (linked by call ID and Contact ID) but the data runs into the end of the space provided. It is not truncated, and the scroll bar will not go far enough to see the last few letters. I can actually get it to within a couple of characters.

Here is some of the things I have tried. Made the Notes field a memo so it would not be restricted to x characters. Tried text field but the 255 character limit was a bit of a problem, (sometimes the call results will exceed 255 chrs) but it would not let me display the entire record anyway. Finally made the Datasheet rows wider and entered a CRLF - that worked okay but would rather have some form of wordwrap- I can't see end-users typing to the end of the container and hitting <return> to finish the entry.

Beyond the obvious problem, what are the relationships between, width of datasheet sub-form, width of container holding it in the main form..., can Access be made to wrap text in a field that has a greater number of characters than the container that will display them width-wise?

A:Access SubForm Datasheet

SRoberts, welcome to the Forum.
Well done in getting as far as you have, unfortunately you have come across a bug in the Access programming, in Forms the Field and the Record do not use the "Can Grow" property as they should. It works in Reports without any problem, but not for Forms in Access versions up to 2003, I am not sure about 2007 though.
You can use the Continuous Forms mode instead of Datasheet to display your data and make the Record larger depth wise, it will just waste space on the records with less data.

I am running Windows XP with Office 2007, and my problem is specifically within Access.

I have a main form [YOY Main Form 1] that simply allows selection of an area (geographically) from a combo box.

I then have a linked subform [YOY Sub Form 1] that displays customers that are within the chosen area, and I have correctly linked the child/master links.

When the subform is open I want to be able to click on any customer and have a separate form open that displays information about the customer. This 3rd form is not linked or embedded in anyway, it is simply another form based on another query, but in the query pane I have set the criteria to [Forms]![YOY Sub Form 1]![Account Code].

The subform is set to continuous forms with record selectors set to Yes.

The problem I have is that when I click on the individual customer record, instead of the form opening automatically, I have a dialogue box prompting me for the Account code. If I enter my cust code the form opens as it should, but I would like this 3rd form to open automatically simply by clicking on the customer record in the subform.

Can anyone help please?

When on a main form and your clicking a command button to access another form with information on it, and you only want some people to be able to do that there is a way to ask for a password with the VBA code does anyone know.

Also when in a form is there a way to make the subform invisiable until you have completed all fields in the main form then it becomes visiable.


A:Access VBA code for password and subform

On the second question about the invisible subform, here's an example that's not really the cleanest code, but it should get you started. Change the ALLCAPS to your form and control names and change the conditional values to the ones appropriate to see if your form is filled out. If you have way too many controls to make this method feasible, you might consider testing only for the most required fields or providing an overide command button to make the subform visible.

Private MAINFORM_Current()
On Error GoTo Err_MAINFORM_Current

If IsEmpty(Me![CONTROL1]) Then
Me.SUBFORM.Visible = False
ElseIf Me![CONTROL2].Value = False Then
Me.SUBFORM.Visible = False
ElseIf Me![CONTROL3].Value = 0 Then
Me.SUBFORM.Visible = False
Me.SUBFORM.Visible = True
End If

Exit Sub

MsgBox Err.Description
Resume Exit_Form_Current

End Sub

Sorry, the reply form seems to lose the tabs and spaces in the code that gets it moved off the left edge. Anyway, hope that helps.

I have a database with student info in it, studentID being the primary key. It includes information such as gender, grade, etc. I then have a table with studentID as the foreign key and information on test scores. The fields on that table are as follows: studentID, test, date, score, type. So each student can have different tests (math, writing, history) and the type is either pre or post.

I can easily make a form to enter the student info with a subform to add all the tests for a student. What I want to know is that since there are only a fixed number of tests a student can take, can I just make a text box for say the reading pre test date and reading pre test score and once those are filled in have it populate all the fields in the test table with the correct info?

I have a dummy database with examples of what I have and want that I can attach if that doesn't make sense. Thanks in advance for any help!

Is there a way to use a combo box in a subform so that it searches only the records in that subform that are the child set from the master form? The primary and sub-forms are based on distinct tables with a one-to-many relationship and enforced referential integrity. In other words, I need to be able to search within the subform among only the related subset of records.

What's really annoying about this is the fact that, while the combo box grabs the entire recordset, the navigation command buttons that I added (GoToNextRecord, GoToLastRecord, GoToFirstRecord, etc.) are actually limited to the correct subset of records. I don't get it.

Here's the SQL statement for the row source property on the combo box:
SELECT Donors.DonorID, Donors.DonorBusinessName, Donors.DonorLastName, Donors.DonorFirstName, Donors.ContactID, Contacts.ContactID
FROM Contacts INNER JOIN Donors ON Contacts.ContactID = Donors.ContactID
ORDER BY Donors.DonorBusinessName, Donors.DonorLastName, Donors.DonorFirstName;

Hi to All!
I have been trying to do this without help but it's taking too long and I just don't know the proper syntax. I need the following:

I have a control on the main form called "Contract type" (combo box)

I have a control on the subform named "Contract type" (combo box). This is the master and child link to the main form.

From the main form, I need...
when the main form "contract type" is changed, I need the subform's "contract type" value to be blank (value = "")
I don't know the syntax to refer to the control on the subform. I've search the web and nothing I've seen is working.

Please help...THANK YOU!!!!

I have a main form and two subforms A and B. These subforms are datasheet views and when I set them up I put the unbound field [Time] in the header of Subform B to total the field [Total Time] Total Time is a calculation field. The [Time] field I coded in the Control Source as =sum([Total Time]) and then in Subform A used a bound field [Total Hours] and in the Control Source entered the code =[subformB].form![Time]. I viewed the two forms (linked through master and child) as form view and the formulas were were working ok.

When I changed back to the default view of datasheet and attached them to the main form (again linked), the Total Time field, now showed #error until I click + to open each line and then the true value would appear.

I cannot get around this error and even though I have pickup this problem on different access sites, no one seems to have an answer to correct the error message. I have used the code =me.[subformA].[subformB].form![time] and other versions trying to rectify the error but no success. I need the form to appear without the error message.

Thanks in advance

I have a lookup form with a subform atttached to it. Its purpose is to allow for users to pick a year, and then all the calims for that year will show up in the subform. The subform has a detail button which is linked to another querry(through macros) to show the claim in more detail. I was able to make this work fine, but once I finished imputting all the data and went back through it, I found this to not be working. In the header I have the labels, which appear fine, but in the detail section of the form, which is where I have the text boxes, is blank. When I select a year int he main form(combo box) nothing changes either. Normally when I would have something like this not work, I would still see the outline of the empty text boxes but in this I see nothing. I have tried to re-add the fields and add other fields but nothing in the details section of the subform will show. (they still are visible in design mode only).

Any help please?

I have hit a totally new and unexpected problem after many years of using MS Access.

I have a fairly large and complex MS Access (2003) database with a large number of tables and forms and a significant number of subforms. Quite suddenly on trying to add a subform in the usual way (i.e. by clicking within toolbox and dragging onto a form) I find that I am not presented with a list of forms to choose from but simply placing an unbound form on the form with "Chidnnn" as the caption.

This also happens in every database. Have I inadvertently changed something in the Access settings? I would appreciate any help.

I need to create a form that shows the same table in two ways
1. Tabular layout on top of the form
2. Columnar layout on the bottom of the form

I tried to add one of the layouts as the subform, but when I open the form, the Tabular layout shows only one record.

Is there way to display two layouts in one form?

Hi, I have an access 2007 database where I have a main form and several subforms in tabs.

I would like to have the user be able to "Add a Record" to the subform. The simple "Add record" from the button wizard does not work. What do I need to do to add a record to the subform?

Hello group,

I wasn't quite sure how to word the subject line. I would like to be able to add a number to column A everyday and have the cumulative sum of column A show in column B in the adjacent cell so I can chart it. So it would look something like this:

1 1
1 2
1 3
2 5
-1 4

I think it's something to do w/the SUM function but I can't quite figure it out. Any help much appreciated.
