MS Access Date Input Masks

Q: MS Access Date Input Masks

I am trying to make an input mask for a MS access Database that will display the "MM/DD/YYY" characters in the field when I click on the field. Is there also a way of having the cursor start on the first character so the user can just start typing in the date information without having to move to the first character?

Thank You

As a long-ago and long-time user of dBase, I am trying to update by learning Microsoft Access via an online course while actually doing the examples and such in OpenOffice Base (sounds complicated and I guess it is). In most areas I can work out equivalent steps, but I have run aground on entering input masks in OpenOffice to match the Access masks. Take for example, masking phone numbers in the field properties of an input field so they will automatically be entered in the format (###) ###-#### by typing in the numbers only. I can do this easily enough in dBase and I can see how Access will do the same thing if you enter in the field properties for creating a record field, the mask "(999) 999-9999" which I guess is then actually rendered by Access as '\(999") "999\-999'. I have a similar problem in entering Boolean properties of the field -- either requiring specific text strings, or setting limits on numerical entries. The OpenOffice help documents do not cover this at all well. Is there an OpenOffice expert on hand that can point me to an answer.

This is not fully solved, but I am withdrawing it from consideration here. This is apparently the wrong forum for an Open Office question.

I have a Date/Time field that I need converted to just a Time field.

It comes back with 2/11/12 0:00:00

I need just the 2/11/12

I thought about changing it to a text field but I think there will be an issue with the month because it does not bring back a 0 in from the months with only 1 digit.

This table that I am creating is being sent to a txt file and that is where I see the issue. It looks good in Access, but not the txt file.

Any suggestions?

Hi there

I know how to do add a criteria to a Query. For example in the QBE pane in design view in the criteria row I enter this statement: Between [Start Date] And [End Date]. When I open up the form that is bound to the query, a message box pops up and I enter the required dates and I get the required data that is between the dates that I specify. However, I'm now finding out that this method is now becoming a nuisance.

Is there a way that I can have 2 unbound controls - one for the start date and the other for the end date in a criteria form. This way I input the dates I want for a particular customer and the form with the required data shows up. For example, I have already developed a criteria form for customers. I have an unbound combo box control that has customer names and when I click on a particular customer name, all the data for that customer is displayed in a form. In the row source of the unbound combo box control there is a SELECT .... FROM ... statement. I also have a button next to the unbound combo box control that opens up the form for that particular customer. Now I want to add two more Unbound controls in the criteria form, one for Start Date and another for End Date.

This way I can select a customer from the customer combo Box, select the start start date from the start date combo box and the end date from the second combo box control and get the desired data for that particular customer between the specified dates. I have attempted to do this bu... Read more

Hello, I use online accounting software (KashFlow) and part of entering invoices involves clicking into a date input field.  It is one of those where a little calendar shows when you click into the field.  You can also manually type a date into this field too. However. On my brand new Yoga 920 using Chrome and Firefox the date input fields are greyed out and a red 'no access' icon shows when you hover over them.  But you can still click it and the calendar pops up as normal.  The only difference is you can NOT type into them anymore. When the source for the page is viewed it looks like the fields have been designated 'readonly'. There is no such problem on any other computer I own, even when using Chrome or Firefox.  The date fields work perfectly well on these other computers - even on a Sony Xperia tablet I own. The only browser that works properly on my Yoga is Edge.  The date fields work as they should.  It's just Chrome (my main browser) and Firefox where they don't work. This seems like a Lenovo-based problem.  A little Google has revealed a couple of similar problems with other Lenovo users. Does anyone have any clue on how to fix this?  This is utterly bizarre behaviour and it's preventing me from working properly. I have attached a photo showing the problem when using Chrome.  These fields should never be greyed out. Thanks,Matt

For many years now my home network has consisted of 5 pcs/laptops all running Windows XP SP2. I've never had any problems with file sharing in my network workgroup before.

However, recently I noticed that all computers havent been able to find each other on the network. After looking into it I noticed that it seems like my network has been "split up" into 2 groups.

PC1 and Laptop1 can find each other in My Network Places (


PC2, PC3, and Laptop2 can find each other in My Network Places (

In attempt to find a difference in connection settings I noticed that some of the computers have automatically been assigned different subnet masks (as shown above).

I tried doing some research on how to possibly change the automatically assigned subnet mask, assigned by the DNS. However, the only solutions I found were the settings that can be changed for the TCP/IP protocol for a network connection. However, I do not wish to change these settings as I want to keep the settings as "Obtain an IP address automatically".

Why are the computers (on the same modem, and same workgroup) retrieving different subnet masks?

Is it possible to JUST change the subnet mask, and not the other IP acquiring settings.

I'm doing some CCNA homework, and am having a little trouble finding a good answer for this question:

What does VLSM stand for, and why does it cause a problem with classful routing protocols?

A:Question about Varible Length Subnet Masks...

"Classless and Classful Routing Protocols
For routers in a variably subnetted network to properly update each other, they must send masks in their routing updates. Without subnet information in the routing updates, routers would have nothing but the address class and their own subnet mask to go on. Only routing protocols that ignore the rules of address class and use classless prefixes work properly with VLSM. Table 2-6 lists common classful and classless routing protocols."

You then got a leased line (I am assuming to the internet, or is it just to a remote site?), which came with a new IP address, and need for a new Subnet mask. Is the new IP address a valid Internet address, or is it another internal address going off to a remote site?

Does anyone remember the command/code to let you input the "criteria" for a query in Access?

Like I want to be able to input the date-range so I don't have to either edit the query each time, or write different queries for each range. I used to do this (and know how) but I'm drawing a blank today (it was one input for each end of the range, and I had modified the field to show date values as "200800205" rather than "2008-02-05" kind of thing).

I've got another field with values between 1 and 99 that I need to specifically select for, which should work the same way.

I just don't remember how to write the code?

A:ACCESS input control question

Read other 10 answers

I am using MS Access 2002. I have no experience at all of Access, but am quite good with Excel.

I have been asked to create a database that alot of people in our company will be using. The best thing would therefore be if they could access an input form and a search form, but nothing else. The database looks like it is going to be quite complicated so i'm trying to understand the basics and take it from there.

As there will be lots of separate tables getting data added to them at the same time, i was unsure if the best way would be to use subforms or unbound controls. I had a look at master and child fields but i'm floundering around in the dark. I have most of the tables made, not too sure about queries and the forms are just giving me an ulcer. I have a rough idea of how i would like the finished form to look from creating a userform in Excel, but i can't even do the basics in Access.

I have attached a dummy database and would appreciate any comments on what the best way to populate all the tables at once would be. It will have the Department, Surveyor and Salary. How would i update the relevent tables at the same time as some parts are dependent on each other. And would it be better to do a large project unbound or using userforms (fiddly things to move i've found)

All comments and advice are most welcome.

Hi All.

I am flying off to Florida tomorrow morning, but wanted to leave some of you Access guru's access to a database I worked on, and now have to figure out how to add something.

You can download the database here.

What I am trying to do is create an interactive Product Listing.

From Switchboard, access"Enter/ View Orders by Customer"

and on the screen that pops up, at the bottom there are several buttons. One is for Product Order. First thing I would like to get rid of, or have automatically found, is the Shipping fields that pop up wanting to be filled. You can leave them blank.

Now we have a Report that lists the Client information, and then a Product listing. What we would like to do is to make this into a Form, that can be interactive with the rest of the database. Basically, we would like to enter the order information through this Form, and have it capable of filling in the appropriate tables, etc. Orders would be placed within the Color columns, and tallied to the left of the Product Name. That total would then carry over into the Orders by customer, etc.

Any assistance by y'all is not expected, but would be most appreciated. This is not my job, and I haven't the necessary knowledge, or time to sort this out. I'm positive I could tack something together at some point, but I'm hoping one of y'all will be a little bored, and feeling extra helpful.

A:Access 2000: Input on Form

Hi guys thanks for clicking in

A few problems, most of which shouldn't be too much trouble to you, I hope.

I've got the input mask for a field : >LL0\ 0LL;0;" " .. Ok so that's fine when actually entering data in the database as in actually physically in the table itself, but what I'm struggling with is that with the form I have created (and user HAS to fill this field in from the form) it won't give me the validation text, all the other input fields in the form work - just this one doesn't. I can enter whatever the hell I like and it will accept it and store it to the field in the table. So I'm wondering how you get the form to recognise the input mask and display an error ?

The other problem is so simple I don't really believe I'm asking it, for a field that should allow no integers of any type, it would be all char's right ? Well I originally thought you would do ...

Between "A" and "Z" ... turns out it's not that simple (I wish), anyone got the simple answer on how to make an input field exclusively char's only. (Form again)

Thanks very much for your time, no rush on this but it's essential that I get it sorted.

Cheers! Iron.

I am working on a project in Access and would like to know how to query the user for data input. Right now I am using a query with a [] criterion (e.g. [Enter the date of interest]) as data for the report but then I must have a different query / report combiniation for each situation (Example: "Show the results for all dates" compared to "Enter the date of interest"). This means I have two reports to maintain and keep identical, etc. I notice the report has a filter parameter but am unsure how this could change values in the same report.

Is it possible to do this in VBA where the same report is brought up either with or without a limiting "where" clause in the VBA command? It seems that I can put a message for the user to the screen with a msgbox but then how do I capture the response? I have looked for an analogous situation in the Northwind database but maybe I've missed it.

A:Solved: Data Input from the Keyboard in Access VBA

I'm going from memory here, but I have a question: is this query populating a report or form?

If you're going straight to a report, in the On_Load, you could prompt the user with a message box, saving the value they enter as a string variable

strMyVariable = Msgbox("Enter date, use this format mm/dd/yy", etc.)

then use an if then else to determine what to return:

if strMyVariable = "" then
strMyQuery = "Select * from myTable where Date = " & strMyVariable
doCmd.openreport etc, etc, strMyQuery
strMyQuery = "Select * from myTable"
doCmd.openreport etc., strMyQuery
end if

I can't remember the exact position where you need to place your strMyQuery, but this should get you started.

Hi, Boy. Welcome to TSG.

I strongly advise AGAINST storing pictures in your DB. You will end up with it all bloated--electronic DB size too big too quickly. However, to do so, you need a field in the table with type OLE object.

On your form, you can right-click it and hit Insert-Picture.

See www.theofficeexperts.com/downloads.htm and check out the MyPictures DB (free download). There, we don't store the pictures in the DB, we just link to them...

Have a very strange problem with an Access 2000 input form. The form has a name-find combo box on it that allows users to enter at least part of a name and after hitting enter, the record for that person is displayed. BUT. . . we just discovered that if you enter a name with an apostrophe, like "O'Reilly", it bombs. Get error message that asks if you want to debug. You say yes, and the module reads like this:

Private Sub Combo205_AfterUpdate()
' Find the record that matches the control.
Dim rs As Object

Set rs = Me.Recordset.Clone
rs.FindFirst "[LastFirst] = '" & Me![Combo205] & "'"
Me.Bookmark = rs.Bookmark
End Sub

The line starting with rs.FindFirst is highlighted when the debug module opens. When originally written, that line did NOT have the & "'" after it. That happens after you try to search on any name with an apostrophe.

Anybody know what the H*## is going on here?

I'm trying to run a simple query in access using VBA to construct the SQL. My problem is that on a BETWEEN...AND part i'm using a date which is in dd/mm/yyyy. As will be obvious to some this causes problems with VBA using US date format. So I thought the following code would work, it doesn't

Dim strDate As String
If DateCheck = True Then
strDate = " "
Else: strDate = "AND tblWholeOrders.Date BETWEEN #" & Format(Me.DateFrom, "dd/\mm/\yyyy") & "# AND #" & _ Format(Me.Dateto, "dd/\mm/\yyyy")& "#"
End If

It gives error 13 type mismatch

You can get an error 13 type mismatch by using DAO when your Access is set to use ADO.
But I would run the query using the original format and then display it in the format you prefer in a report or form or whatever.

A:Access Date Macro

It isn't entirely clear what you are trying to achieve. What I don't know is what field(s) currently exist in your table/form for date...

For the sake of argument, let's say you have a field that contains the date the call took place.

You can have that field on a report or form as many times as you want (make sure only one of them is editable) and each one can display the data differently: one for input is straightforward Short Date, the next one, in the field's properties>format, you could put "mm yyyy" (without the quotes) and make this one non-editable, and it would give you the Jan 2004 view.

In a report, though, you can control how you view records by "grouping and sorting".

Hope this makes sense,

(ie: I want a date for the next car service due: first field = service due every xx months + second field= last service date).

How do I add a figure in months to a date?

I have had some results by entering a short integer in the first field but it adds the number to the date in days only. I need to have the number added to the months and not the days.

appreciate any assistance that I can get.

Set your criteria for the relevant field to:

Hi.. as you can guess I am not that good with access. I have done a data base and what I want to do is search by a time period.
example. I have 5 pieces of data 3 in jan two in feb I want to show only those pieces of data in Jan .. How do I do it. One of the variables in the data base is disptached date which is a pre set date.
Can i set up a data critera where it will ask for a start and end date for the search and show only those pieces of information.

Also. while I am on. another search I am in need for is. I have created a order book and what I would really like is for to print out a report that will show by date ( as above) but only showing orders acepted and not just quoted for or visa versa. when I do a quote there is a box for their order number and a box for quote date is there a way of making access check to see if there is a varible in that the order No. box and if their is to print it out IF its in the date range as well.??


I know it is asking a lot. but that date range search would be very helpfull and I know if anyone can help you can.. thanks

In Access I want to view all the records for one week. I was hoping this would work. "Between [Enter Beginning Date] and [Enter Beginning Date]+6" What am I missing? The goal is to only have to enter one date.

A:Access query date

mcookaz, it is better to use a form to either enter a date or select a date from an ActiveX calendar, you then use
Between forms![Formname]![Enter Beginning Date] and forms![Formname]![Enter Beginning Date]+6

It can be used on as many queries as you like as well.

Hello Everyone!

I have a field that has Days (Ex. Monday, Tuesday etc...)

Is there a way to turn this Days into a nearest date coming up. So for example if i have Wednesday on the field as a value and today is tuesday... I want the date for tomorrow displayed.

I have been doing research but I cant find anything. I have found the opposite but it doesnt do me any good. Thank you very much.

See if this gets back your control panel..

Copy the text the in the code box to notepad. Save it as fixreg.reg to your desktop.
Be sure the "Save as" type is set to "all files"
Once you have saved it double click it and allow it to merge with the registry.

On Access I have a little connundrum that will probably be simple enough to those in the know.

In one of my queries I am trying to calculate future weeks that a particular person will be staying at our tuition centre. No need to worry about how I got to these values but the columns that I have now are:

For future week : week #
For future week : day name (underpinned by a number)

Thus for the day Friday 20th February 2009, I would have:

Week # = 8 (using datepart function)
Day name = Friday (or numeral = 6).

What can I write in a cell (or if need be in VBA) to combine these two known figures, that will result in the format (20/2/2009)

Thank you in advance,

I have an Access 97 database on the network, in which about 10 users share. There is this one form that updates returned goods, for some reason I have one computer that adds the time and date to a date field. I want to get rid of the time, and leave short date. It looks like this, 2/5/2001 10:47:50 AM
Data is missing when I query the database using date ranges. I'm sure it's something that I'm missing. Any suggestions? TIA

This is the table input mask 99/99/0000;0;_
Table Format mm/dd/yyyy

A:Access 97 Date And Time

Check the user's regional settings for time/date...that's my guess.
