Yoga 920 - Can't type into Date Input Fields

Q: Yoga 920 - Can't type into Date Input Fields

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

I upgraded my laptop to Win 8.1 a few days ago and everything seemed to be working fine. I ran into an issue today using the desktop version of IE 11 where I can type text into the address bar but if I select a field on a web page, I am not able to type text into it. I normally use FireFox as my browser and it works fine (as does Chrome). If I bring up the Metro version of IE 11, I can enter text fine.

Anybody got any ideas how to fix this? It's not a big deal since I rarely use IE but it bugs me now that I know about it. I just checked on a netbook I upgraded and don't see the issue there.

Hello. My problem can be seen here. Ignore my commentary.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J7la_0KObbc I have an issue with my touchscreen consistently, frequently, taking anywhere from 2-15 (!) taps to regonize input. Once it does, it latches on immediately and functions until I begin using the KB/Mouse for some time. If I drag my finger, it recognizes it immediately, but it can sometimes take 1-5 inches of movement before it starts to recognize input. Suggestions welcomed.

I think I have narrowed it down to on mouse movement that text input fields fill with %E?;E?+E? or %%E; or different variations of those characters followed by ENTER... I think!?!?
I removed all other languages from the keyboard settings in windows, and turned off the hotkeys for switching languages, this didn't help.
The next step was to swap out the Logitech keyboard/mouse combo with a ps2 keyboard and usb mouse and uninstalled logitech's setpoint software thinking that might be the problem.
It wasn't.
Not sure what steps to take next.
BTW, it doesn't matter what program is open...

Thanks for any help

Hi there i have a bit of a PC issue that i am looking into.

When using internet explorer and a site for example ebay. It will only let me populate the Username Field, But when i try enter the password the field doesn't allow any data to be entered. This happens for other programs outwith Internet Explorer too.

The OS is Windows XP

What would cause this to happen?

Thanks
 

A:Unable to Type in some fields

Press Tab instead of enter when you want to move to a password or other field in a form. Pressing enter pretty much means that all fields are complete (like pressing "Send" or "Submit" yourself).

i have created a form in word, adn i want it to be read only for most of the form. However, i do want certain fields to allow users to type in. Is there any way that i can easily do this. i know that this may seem kind of vague, let me know if you need any other info.
 

A:MS Word; only type in certain fields

[edit]
Too bad there's not a strikethrough text format. Anyway, ignore the stuff in red.

This is a common question that has no easy answer. There is no way to permanently lock the text of a document while leaving the fields open. There are some workarounds, such as using a background graphic instead of body text.

I don't know what I was thinking about when I wrote that, but it wasn't forms. It might have been converting a PDF document to a protected Word form. Another of Dreamboat's articles.
[/edit]

If you search the forums for something like Word form protect text, you might get some hits. The question gets worded differently from time to time, so play around with the search criteria until you get a thread that works for you.

Here are a couple of similar threads (searching word form lock text):

One of our office computers won't allow the user to type in the search fields or log in fields within IE on any website. Can't search on Google, Yahoo, can't log in on hotmail or other online applications that we use at work. In addition to this issue; when I open Control Panel I get a script error, the icons on Add/Remove Programs are very small with no description of what the icons represent and if I try to udate Windows it tells me that it needs to install addiotional files to update the system but it gets locked into a loop where it installs then tells me that it needs to install the same files. I can't run a Panda scan because it asks for my e-mail address and I can't type into the field. When trying to run a Kaspersky online scan it won't update the new virus definitions which is an automatic action. When I try to run HouseCall it tells me that there is another HouseCall running and closes the prgram. There is no indication in Task Manager of two HouseCalls running. Ewido found some problems corrected them but didn't fix my problem. Replaced the mouse and did a restart so those won't work. The computer was running fine one evening and when we came in the next day it was acting this way.

Hi people! I'm new to this forum, and have not been looking around much, but will from now on. While i'm a computer technician, Excel was never a strong point - i was always more of a 'hardware' guy. In any event, i have a question that needs some answering. Bear with me if some of my terminology is not %100 correct. I'll try my best.

I have a 3-page spreadsheet. On the 1st page, i have the values I input. Column A(A5 and down) is the date column. B - S are the numerical monetary values I put in, and T & U are the totals. One is a numerical total, the other a monetary total. On the 2nd page, Column A is again dates(B is reserved for manual input), and C & D are the row totals from the 1st page. I manually input data from E - M, and Column N is =SUM(B2:M2). You get the picture.

Here's where it gets tough. The 3rd page is just a break down of the monetray charges for any given day. What i want is for the 3rd page to update the date on the top to the day it is now, and then the monetray totals for that day only, or the day before, whichever I need. I guess What i want is if I change the date on the top of the spreadsheet page, it will update the totals in each of the cells i have underneath. It's not going to be printed, just for viewing on my screen. Right now, I have to input the data for a daily printout manually. If i can change the date at random, and get it to update the totals from the other page, that would be great.

I'm not sure what to do here...

After downloading Explorer 8 (and updating Windows) I am unable to type in any field below the top pane. (I can type text just fine in my google search field and the url field)

I un-installed Explorer 8 (which re-installed Explorer 7) with no improvement.

I noticed that after completing the Windows update (I have Service Pack 3) my Anti Virus (Zone Alarm) had been blown away. I had to re-install it. I've since learned that I should disable anti-virus software prior to doing Windows updates.

Is this a virus?

I have been trying to help a friend learn how to do form letters with his Microsoft Works Suite 2004 programs. He has Windows XP SP2. We were able to successfully merge desired fields from a Works database but noticed that the format of date and time field results was not as desired. The date field always merged as "MM/DD/YYYY" in the form letter no matter what format was used for date display in the database program. He wanted to display, for example, "November 12, 2004" instead of "11/12/2004". Likewise, the time field merged as "hh:mm:ss AM/PM" when he wanted, for example, "11:25 PM" to display.
In Works 4.5 (on another computer), his formatting carried over to the form letter from the database. Not so in the 2004 version. Our temporary fix, was to format the date & time fields in the database as "text" instead of "date" or "time" and then enter the exact display style wanted. Then, the merged value looked the same in the letter as it did in the database.
Is there a better solution to this problem?

Hello,
 
My 8 year old son decided to download some Malware onto my computer while I was deployed the last few months.  Anyway Im running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit and am having issues entering text into IE 11.  I believe the issue stems from PUP.Optional.MindSpark.
 
Im pretty sure I removed MindSpark completely by using MalwareBytes, SuperAntiSpyware, and CCleaner to get rid of it.  I also have McAfee AntiVirus which didnt catch Mindspark.
 
So the problem now and when the PUP was on my computer is that I cannot enter text into text fields on IE 11.  Right now Im using Google Chrome and am having no issues with it, but I would like to get the IE 11 problem fixed.  Also as a note if I run IE 11 as an administrator it acts normal, but as soon as I close the browser and reopen it, it stops working again.  A couple of things I have done that wound up with no results include:  Restoring Internet options to default, turning off protected mode, and ran a Windows system performance scan.  Also Ive made sure everything on my computer has the latest and greatest updates.
 
So hopefully somebody here can help me out.

EXCEL SOS!!! I have an urgent deadline which I'm likely to fail if I can't get my head around this issue so please please feel free to comment / offer suggestions...I'll try anything!

I have around 10 - 15 sheets within the same excle file which is effectively acting as one tab per resource within my consultancy team. These are acting a a record of the billable & non billable hours per resource and therefore each line is primarily driven by date (2011 - 2013), with 1:N ratio items of the following: Client, Contract, Role, Days & hrs (effectively 1 line per date, resource, client & contract combination + time billed within the std 8 hr working day).

I have no problems creating individual pivot tables in the individual resource name's relevant tab, however the next step is to roll this information togather to show a holistic view for all resources, all clients etc (in what I anticipated to be a pivot table via the consolidation of multiple ranges function) for all resources by exactly the same fields:

Year, Date, Contract/Type, Resource, & Date - at row level (with possible additional options of Month, Week, Day being added as a row label)

AND

CLIENT , Non Billable - at column level

Naturally there may well be some slicing and dicing of the info needed to understand the figures at different levels, ie per resource (days billed & rate), how many hours used per contract, how we've used time in a contract (by role), & whom (by... Read more

A:Solved: Pivot multiple sheets for text, date and decimal fields

Hi there, welcome to the board!

I feel your frustration. Unfortunately your data structure isn't conducive for a PivotTable data model. But there is hope! You have some options here. First of all we need to know what version you're using. If you have 2010, well, you're going to really like what I'm about to tell you, and if you don't have it, it's a good reason to upgrade! 2010 has a new add-in called PowerPivot. Think of it as PivotTable's on bulk steroids. The benefit you would see - the ability to select multiple data sources. This means you can have multiple data tables/sheets as your data source, and select their relationships. Think of it like an Access table/relationship. It's the best feature we've seen in Excel since the PivotTable itself.

So if you have 2010, this is good news. However, if you don't have 2010, we need to consolidate your data to a single data structure. Whether that is putting it all on one sheet, or exporting to Access, or whatever, that's what needs to happen.

I'm not entirely sure what you mean about not getting the row level structure. Is there any way you can post the file?

Hi there,
I have an MS Access database (2000, but primarily operating on PC with Access 2010). The database logs wagons coming to and from our site. Mostly, these wagons are in and out in the same day, but it is possible for them to park up overnight, for which we charge a small fee.

The situation has now changed slightly, in that we now accept wagons staying on site for longer periods (usually a weekend), so I've been asked to introduce an Exit Date field as well, and correct the existing calcualtion of time on spent site.

Currently, the following fields appear in the main table (called Stays):

Arrival Date
Arrival Time
Exit Time

There is also a field called Duration, which (for some reason) is autofilled by an Update Query, with the Update To value set to:

IIF([Arrival Time]>[Exit Time],1440+DateDiff("n",[Arrival Time],[Exit Time]),DateDiff("n",[Arrival Time],[Exit Time]))​

This is clearly inaccurate - it assumes that if a wagon's exit time is earlier in the day than its arrival time, then it must have stayed for 1440 minutes + the (negative) difference between the two times, and if the exit time is later or equal to the arrival time, the wagons has been in and out of site in the same day.

As wagons could be on site for multiple days (so the 1440 mins figure could be wrong) and could leave x amount of days plus x amount of minutes after arriving (so the assumption that it's exited the same day as it arrived could be wrong),... Read more

Screen part number is (according to lenovo page):04W3462Model Number is 42962WUTouchscreen with finger doesnt work ( if it has any).I dont have a pen (stylus) currently since it was not provided with laptop BUT:Windows in properties says : No pen or touch input is available for this display .Reinstalled windows freshly twice along with drivers (once manually downloaded , second time used Lenovo System update)Still says the same, and there is no tablet or pen and touch settings in control panel.In some other topics , someone suggested to similar problem as a solution installing wacom pen drivers, lenovo digitizer drivers etc.Tried provided drivers , and with every driver throws the same error : a supported tablet was not found on the systemMaybe it has to detect pen near the laptop and it should be fine?Did I just got ripped off?Thanks a bunch!

A:X220 Tablet Screen type identify ( and touch input...

Ok, so the lcd is definitely multitouch , which is now a reason to concern .Basically , windows recognize it as a laptop, no hid touch input devices in device manager whatsoever.Is this a common issue? Tryed unpluging and plugging back in LCD micro cables but nothing.

Hi everyone

I am new to the forum and really dying on figure this out.
I usually trying to uninstall programs by checking when they were installed in the date modified column in the uninstaller

The column does not display any data no more, and empty column

So I go to uninstaller, there is a list of programs, but nothing under the column date modified

Any suggestion is appreciated thank you thank you thank you!

A:Uninstaller Does Not Display Date Modified and Type

Open Control Panel > Uninstall a program (or Programs and Features)

If need be, select Detail view via the upper right corner:

Right click on one of the column heading bars and select the desired columns from the context menu.

Select More... if desired.
...or maybe I did not understand your issue.

Running W7 64 bit and I have a strange problem with sorting.

For example in Downloads I have a bunch of both folders and files. So I sort by type and all the folders are arranged first in the list and then all the other assorted files fall beneath. With that sorted I click on Date Modified and instead of arranging the folders from newest to oldest or vice-versa it sends the folders to the bottom of the page beneath all the other assorted files.

What is that all about?

I've looked and looked but cant find the answer. Its driving me mad!

A:Date Modified/Type hierarchy not sorting correctly

I don't remember who posted this. Thought I had saved that info but now I can't find it.






Quote:
This turns out to be real easy.

Open Windows Explorer.
Navigate to the folder you want to look at.
Click on the 1st column header you want to sort by, like Type.
The files and folders will be sorted by file type.
Now hold the Shift key and click on another column header, like Date.
The files and folders will be sorted by date while maintaining the grouping caused by the Type sort.

Hi all, I'm happy with the general touch functionality of my device (using my fingers), but when I use the pen for writing or drawing (in Reader, Drawboard PDF, Word), the input often stops while I'm still drawing a line. I then have to lift the pen up and make contact between the pen tip and the display again. Then, it usually works for some fractions of an inch before it stops again.  Is there a solution to that behavior? Thanks!

I am trying to create links to specific locations with each document between two documents. The document names will change. I can update the current name of the other document by creating a custom property called "otherDoc". I have solved most problems, however, I am unable to insert a field into the address of the link (to make the link dynamic) without utilizing the showfieldcodes command (which is very memory and time consuming since the documents I am working on are very large). Below is my code. I was wondering if there is any way to set the address as a field? Or somehow input an address and it would be understood by word to be field.
Sub link_to_other()

'pastes hyperlink to the other document
Selection.PasteSpecial Link:=True, DataType:=wdPasteHyperlink, Placement:= _
wdInLine, DisplayAsIcon:=False

'selects the hyperlink that was just inserted
Set myField = Selection.PreviousField

'creates variables
Dim temp_address As String
Dim temp_subaddress As String

'sets variables
temp_address = ActiveDocument.CustomDocumentProperties("otherDoc").Value & ".doc"
temp_subaddress = Selection.Range.Hyperlinks(1).SubAddress

'changes the hyperlink the the dynamic value
Set SCut = ActiveDocument.Hyperlinks.Add( _
Anchor:=Selection.Range, _
Address:=temp_address, SubAddress:=temp_subaddress)
End Sub

I have browsed through this forum archives and I see many users running into similar Touchscreen Ghost Input problem. I have a Lenovo Yoga 2 13 with the very same problem. Unfortunately, the solutions mentioned so far are for other models, with a different Display Unit (LG). My Lenovo Yoga 2 13 came with a AUO display. My product is still under warranty and I've raised a support request too. But could the forum admins here, who helped the other Lenovo Yoga series users, help me with a fix ?

Here is how the problem appeared:1. I received a new 20FQCTO1WW. First-time booted fine, touch and pen were working at this time.2. Repartitioned the drive and installed Windows (10 pro, the retail version)3. Installed wifi driver from Lenovo support page (http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/thinkpad-x-series-laptops/thinkpad-x1-...)4. Installed Lenovo System Update and used that to get all the drivers, etc. At this point device manager shows nothing missing, I see all touch screen, pen, Wacom device and all the things but touchpad and pen input doesn't register anything.  I suspect firmware/driver issue. Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Just as a side note, touchscreen as well as brightness adjustment doesn't work out of the box on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, if anybody has ran into this and found solutions.
