How to create a querry to calculate difference between prev record and current record

Q: How to create a querry to calculate difference between prev record and current record

I have a table which consists of date, time, odometer reading as fields. i want to calculate mileage of my vehicle by having query in Microsoft access 2007 which subtracts odometer reading from previous record with current record. can i get the mileage between the customized date and time?

this should take care if the odometer is reset and starts a fresh readings. should have the provision to enter manually the fuel quantity whenever odometer is not working properly.
any suggestion to build a query will be appreciated. thanks in advance.

Hi All,

Still a relative Access 97 VBA newbie here. I've been fiddling with VBA all day today and managed to adapt an Autofill script to my
database that will (when I press my nifty button) automatically copy fields from the LAST record in a table and place it in a new record. This is ALMOST what I need.

Can someone show me how to modify the code so instead of going to the last record before copying the fields, it copies the fields of the record I'm currently on and then places the info in a new record?

FYI, I think this is the basic autofill code from microsoft, edited by me to include automatically adding a new record and generating a PK ID number. . .

Thanks in advance for any help,

Dim RS As Recordset
Dim C As Control
Dim FillFields As String

I've created a form in Access-2013 and placed record navigation buttons (using the button wizard) in the footer to allow the user to scroll through the records. They are the usual buttons and function as you would expect:

<< | < | > | >>[/FONT]

Problem is that when a user is on the last record in the table and clicks the ''right" button (in red above), the form displays a blank record. This is normal behavior for Access (as far as I know) and as long as a user enters NO DATA in ANY field, Access does not write the record to the table.

Given that users may be less than astute , I would like to eliminate the possibility of them creating a "blank" record in the table.

Is there anyway to stop this default behavior in Access?

Using Office 2002 (I know, but it usually does what we want it too ).

We have an Access DB including 2 forms that display data taken from 1 table (one form displays the general info, the other the account details).

I have placed a button on each form that opens the other form then closes the first form. What I am wanting it to do is open the other form at the record that was displayed on the 1st form. I don't want it to filter so you can only view the current record (example: from Form1: Record1: click the button and it will take us to Form2: Record1: but once we are finished in there we can search for other records whilst in Form2: then click to go back to Form1: displaying the last record viewed in Form2

I did a google and got a few suggestions but none seemed to work, so I am now back at the "open the other form" code.
Private Sub OpenAccounts_Click()
On Error GoTo Err_OpenAccounts_Click

Dim stDocName As String
Dim stLinkCriteria As String

stDocName = "BCAccounts"

DoCmd.OpenForm stDocName, , , stLinkCriteria

Exit Sub

Any suggestions?

Hello All,
I have this database I built for all my music CDs. It is searchable by artist, date recorded, venue, city , state, notes and track title. The search works fine but I have one issue. I use a subform for all the track titles and it displays the correct songs for the CD. However, I get a record for each song. So if one CD has 16 songs I get 16 records for that CD. In my sample dB I have 7 CDs but it shows 117 records because that is the sum of all the songs on those 7 CDs. I want it to show only the 7 CD records and not a record for each song and still be searchable. I can make it show the way I want but then I can't search by song title. I attached my condensed database version to look at in case my description seems a bit convoluted. Thanks.

I posted a while ago about an Access database I was working on to help better organize our IT department. Long story short, it's pretty good for the time being, but there are a few things I'm still trying to work out to make data entry easier.

In particular, I have a new order form that adds records for each line item in a purchase order. At times, I have multiple items that are going to the same location with the same order number, order total, order date, user assigned, business unit charged, etc.

It would be extremely easy to fill out the form at the beginning of one of these orders and simply click a "Copy Current Record" button which would duplicate the record to a new one where I could then modify the few things that I'm required to (e.g., Product ID).

I've already got an "Add New Record" button that we can use to start with a new record built from some out-of-the-box functions in Access.

Any ideas for an easy "copy current record to new record" button I can add to help speed things up?

I am adding some extra functionalities to an existing MS Access 2003 database. I would like to have a button, that copies some of the values of the current record that is open in the form, and pastes it into a new record.

So if I would have a field called 'year', with the value '2009', I would like to have this same value '2009' pasted into the same field in a new record (I would like a seperate 'new record' button for this, using VB).

Hi all. I'm attaching an image of a macro that came useful in many of the Modal Pop-ups that were included in Access 2007 templates.

It saves the form, then opens a form that you specify at the ID of your hyperlink. It will then requery the form and search for the records for that ID.

Is there a VB that does all this in Access, so I can get away from using the macro?

I have a network with over 2000 workstations. My problem involves DNS inside our domain (192.168.xxx.xxx). Something went amiss, so when DHCP assigns an IP, it doesn't always create a Host (A) record. It does create the Pointer record.

I can usually - with a lot of effort - figure out the IP-Hostname connection, then I can resume working on that workstation. After my other work on the workstation is finished, I can open DNS and create the (A) Record ... or not.

What I need is a way to create the (A) record using a batch file:

C:> createa.bat param1 -- in which param1 is the IP address

The batch file will create the (A) Record and return a commentary on what did or didn't happen.

Rather than get sidetracked, here's some background.
I don't need to fix what's described below - I only need to create the (A) Record quickly.
The guy who manages DHCP is trying to figure out what went wrong - and hopefully fix it. I'm not worried about that - it's not my job. Once he fixes that, the problem should stop happening.
However, I'll still have workstations that have no (A) Record. Eventually that will self-resolve, but making it happen is a logistical nightmare.
My problem is that I have a huge number of workstations that have no (A) record. If I ping a hostname, or do nslookup, or DNS Forward Lookup on the hostname, the command returnsPing request could not fin... Read more

I need to read and update a table that has thousands of records in it with multiple record types that need to be grouped. It's an EDI style format. The problem is I can't find a unique value to tie all of the record types together - so I'm thinking I'll just create a unique value for each group of records. Below is an example of the records. I'd like to create a unique ID for each group of Rec_Type 10-95. I was thinking I'd need to create some VBA code that reads the table and just updates a new field that stores a group ID. Here's the english version
Pseaudo Code:
Set counter to 1
Read Table
if rec_type >=10 and rec_type <95 then
Group = Counter
Otherwise If rec_type = 95 Then
Group = Counter
Counter = Counter +1
Else Group = 0

Update Group field on record

Loop - read next record
While I understand how to create modules and how to create update queries, I'm a little fuzzy on how to create the VBA to read through a table and evaluate each record for updating an attribute in that record. Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi all, I am not too familiar with SPF records, i just know they ensure that the sending server for a particular domain is authorized to send mail etc (at least i think, let me know if i am wrong).
My mail is hosted with Office 365, and when i set this up it asked me to create an SPF record on the domain which was the following:
v=spf1 include:spf.protection.outlook.com -all
Can someone let me know what the above does? I though it would allow mail to be send that is routed through office 365 servers but mail being sent from my domain elsewhere would fail, is this not what is happening?
I only ask because I have a Joomla website that can send out messages using PHP mail and it sends out successfully, i would of thought that it would have failed with a correct SPF record that only allows office 365 to send mail. Could someone clear this up for me.
The domain is animalsanctuary.org.uk if that helps!

A:SPF Record Help

SPF records don't block outgoing mail traffic -- they simply signal to other mail servers that email being sent from that mail server is legit. It is up to the other mail servers to determine whether or not to block those incoming emails that don't have SPF records configured. Any email sent through Office 365 will have a proper SPF record; anything sent using PHP won't. This may cause email being sent out by the Joomla server to be blocked when it tries to send email to certain mail servers.
You should be able to configure your PHP mail with an SMTP relay through Office 365 if you are worried about mail from the Joomla website being blocked for a lack of an SPF record.

The workgroup has two computers (and a router).

DHCP Scope is aaa.bbb.ccc.100 - aaa.bbb.ccc.110

Router is aaa.bbb.ccc.1

All are in the same subnet.

Until yesterday, both computers could see each other, could share files and printers, and could connect to each other via Remote Desktop. I obviously screwed up something, somehow (or my daughter did...) What happened is a mystery, and the results are most perplexing.

Computer X is inaccessible from computer Y for a really strange reason: DNS thinks the IP of computer X is aaa.bbb.ccc.99 . The correct IP for Computer X is aaa.bbb.ccc.100

From computer Y, if I ping computer X by hostname,

the ping fails.
the ping reports the wrong IP: aaa.bbb.ccc.99

From computer Y, if I ping computer X by IP aaa.bbb.ccc.100, the ping succeeds AND reports the correct IP (duh!) - aaa.bbb.ccc.100

On the router/DHCP server both computers are listed and both show the correct IP

I think the problem is the A (host) record in the DNS Resolver Cache on Computer Y

On computer Y

ipconfig /displaydns shows the incorrect IP for Computer X (it shows aaa.bbb.ccc.99)
the A record on the routing table shows the incorrect IP for Computer X (it shows aaa.bbb.ccc.99)
I have tried a series of diagnostics from computer Y:

I've had HP Record Now in for almost a year, it came with my HP cd burner, and was simple to use. But now I have something better, that does more. I don't use the Record Now, so decided to take it out.

I've been going in circles!

Taking it out in Add/Remove programs, it starts to uninstall then says "put in disk one". I only have one cd that came with it, so put that in, (thinking it's required to uninstal) and it seems to install it.

I think I have it out, I've even deleted the actual file in PROGRAMS. But whenever I put the computer on, a box comes up saying the installation isn't complete and put in disk one. I click "cancel" and a larger error message comes up saying the installation wasn't complete and the reminder will come on next time I start the computer.

I'm not an expert at finding and removing/changing settings, but I have learned some. I RUN and MSCONFIG STARTUP and uncleck the HP setup box, apply, restart pc, etc.

The next time I put it on again, it starts all over and the box in MSCONFIG-STARUP is checked again.

If I don't cancel the setup, it asks for the disk again, and installs it all over again, and I go to add/remove programs (doesn't seem to be an uninstal anywhere else) and it starts all over. The uninstall asks for the disk before it continues and puts it in again.

I'm thinking reg key? But, don't want to mess with the reg, unless I have exact instructions.

The problem is in the title. My computer will not record anything. Not from a cassette deck, neither from a microphone. There were two things I did before even trying to record anything, perhaps it screwed something up.
1. I installed VLC media player (to be able to watch video DVDs - other progrms refused to do it on this computer. It was a drag.)
2. I installed Sound Forge 7.0. A mistake I guess, seems it's not compatible. I uninstalled the program, but it didn't help.

Otherwise the sound works, the mic also - with Winamp shoutcast for example. But it won't record. It might be that it would, but for some reason the recording sound level is frozen at close to 0 level and it won't budge - in Sound Recorder that is, a program that came preinstalled. In the shop they've tried to help, but to no avail, and if I got it right they could not change the recording sound level for Windows Movie Maker, which they used to test the problem. The recording level in the sound options in control panel is on max, but it doesn't help. What to do?

Oh yes, and it just stopped voice info om avast updates. Just some days ago. But maybe that's not related.

I'm no computer wizzard, so if someone could help in a simple English...

Hi there

I have a load of avi files that I want to convert and burn to DVD so I can a) remove them from my PC and free up some much needed space, and b) watch them on a normal DVD player and TV.

I have a CD writer drive on my PC, but not a DVD burner. However, I do have a recordable DVD player linked to my TV. Can anyone advise me how I set about transferring all these avi files to DVD? I wonder if I can link up my DVD recorder to my PC with the use of some kind of lead, perhaps from Maplin or Radio Shack?

Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks folks.

A:How do I record .avi to dvd?

You may be able to use the composite out (yellow) and a headphone to RCA cable (red and white) to run to those inputs on your dvd recorder. I've never heard of anyone doing that, but people output to tvs that way so it might work. You'd just need to have the resolution set to something low like 800x600 and fullscreened the video when you start recording. Would be interesting to see if that works......

Or you could pay $25 and get a DVD burner, then use some software like ConvertXtoDVD which is incredibly easy to use. You can do it with free software too, but it can get complex quickly. Lots of tutorials on doom9.org

Do I have to convert the MP3 to a different file type in order to record/burn to a CD? If so, what type of program do I use?

Or do I just drag and drop to a CD-Writer blank CD using easy CD creator program.

MP3s will transfer directly as data with EZCD Creator.

Hi every body

I have a problem with record from pc ,

Actually I would like to record by JetAudio which I did in win xp ,

but now in win7 I faced problem with program :

A:No Record from PC

Two issues. (1) Does Jet Audio have a Win 7 compatible version? Some of the audio functions are handled differently in Vista and Win 7 from XP. (2) I see you do not have the System Mixer, this could be the problem.

You failed to fill out the System Specs so we can comment directly on what sound you have. But, look for a new/updated sound driver as that MAY give you the System Mixer capability (what SoundBlaster calls "what you hear").

Hi all
Is there any inexpensive way of recording from TV to PC?
At the moment I have a DVD Recorder with Hard Drive but its quite a few years old now and it records via Scart which in all honesty, means the picture quality is pretty poor.
Ive just got Netflix so the plan is to get my old PC and connect that via a DVI to HDMI cable so I can run Netflix that way on the TV rather than through the Wii.
Admittedly i dont use the Recorder frequently and i dont have Sky+.  Yes I know there a lots of catchup options now hence me not using the Recorder regularly.
Ive seen a couple of items on Ebay but im not entirely sure how they work or even if its possible to do.  This is to record from TV channels and not Netflix I must add.
Ebay items ive seen: http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/Video-Capture-TV-Tuner-Cards-/3761/i.html?_from=R40&_sop=2&LH_ItemCondition=1000&LH_BIN=1&_nkw=pc+tv+card&LH_PrefLoc=1
Any help and advice appreciated.

I have the simple 6.7.0 which came bundled with my XP PC.

Under "Audio for car or home CD players"...

I have a list of files in the left column which can be transferred easily to the right "burn" column.

I have an "X" delete button for the right column and I an delete whatever I want in this "music to burn" column. However, no matter what I try, I cannot clear the left "view / find", "music on system" column.

I exit, and it stays. That column is impenitrable.

In the General option, "Don't remember pending projects when RecordNow exits" box is checked. I've tried it with it unchecked.

Still the left "music on system" column cannot be cleared.

Any ideas?

Thank you

We host our own email server and published an SPF record on our DNS server. However, it would appear this SPF record is not being seen by recipients, as shown by dnsreports.com. Exact report:

Your domain does not have an SPF record. This means that spammers can easily send out E-mail that looks like it came from your domain, which can make your domain look bad (if the recipient thinks you really sent it), and can cost you money (when people complain to you, rather than the spammer). You may want to add an SPF record ASAP, as 01 Oct 2004 was the target date for domains to have SPF records in place (Hotmail, for example, started checking SPF records on 01 Oct 2004).

Any ideas why its not being seen? Thanks.

I'm new to this site... I have been trying to figure this out for months now. I am trying to get my recorded TV shows to my PC so I can get rid of the commercials and put them on DVD's. I have an Intel Core2 Duo/(6400) 2.13Ghz, 2Gb Ram, with Win Xp Pro V 2002 (SP2), 250 Gb HD, NVidia Geforce 7600 GT and Hauppauge WinTV PVR 500 Dual tuner TV card.I have Dish Network with locals, tried hooking up the coax from the main satellite line at first (right out of the wall) and got no signal at all on my pc. Then realized it wasn't going through the smartcard... so I ran the splitter from the back of the TV instead. Now I can get reception on the pc (using either coax from the splitter or A/V cables direct from the back of the satellite box). So far, I have gotten this much to work with ORB 2.0Here's the issue: It will ONLY show me the channel that is currently displayed on the television (or the dish box...same thing) at that time, and when this does work, it's very choppy at times. I do get the correct cable guide displayed on the pc, with all the correct information, but no matter which channel I try to open (if it opens) it always shows me only what is on my tv.Does anyone have any other ideas? What software can I use to transfer the shows to the PC, and edit the commercials out?? ALL information I can find refers to Windows Media Center Edition! THANK YOU!!!Moderator Edit: Moved topic to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

A:Record Tv To Pc-on Xp Pro

I understand that a program called Video Redo can scan an MPEG-2 file (that has been captured) and automatically mark the start and end of commercials which allows you to easily edit them out using its built-in editor. The trick will be how to capture to an MPEG-2 file. Does your satellite set top box have an S-video output ? Your capture card should be able to accept this kind of input and the accompanying software should let your capture to MPEG-2.Keep in mind that the MPEG from your satellite receiver is not MPEG-2, but what is refered to as "MPEG-1.5" which was developed and rushed to market before MPEG-2 became a standard. Recording from an analog output may be your only viable option, though not a bad one at all. A quick look at your capture card shows an S-video connector, a good sign. Also keep in mind that this card and probably its software, or lack of software, is directed at XP MCE users, not XP Home/Pro users. However, I also expect a company like Hauppauge would create some means for a Home/Pro user to fully use their card. One note in the product page: "Note: when using the WinTV-PVR-500 MCE with WindowsXP or Vista Home Basic, you need a third party TV application such as SageTV or BeyondTV". This may be the "missing link" you need.
