MS Access: Multiple copies of pages within a Report

Q: MS Access: Multiple copies of pages within a Report

Hello,

This thread touched on what I'd like to do but went into a different direction:
https://forums.techguy.org/threads/...nt-multiple-times.1212146/page-2#post-9529585

I am so close on completing my system except for one nagging problem. I would like to generate labels for our shipping boxes. If Customer wants one of Product A, I can do that. If Customer wants ten of Product A, I could make ten copies. If Customer wants ten of Product A and ten of Product B, the report (shipping label) is all ready to go as two pages, and I'd make ten copies. The problem is, let's say Customer wants ten of Product A and 5 of Product B. I haven't been able to figure this out yet.

The number of labels I would need to create is in the query used to generate the report, field "Quantity." The shipping form calls up the report, which pulls the data from the query. As an example, I've got a report that is complete for each of the seven products to be shipped, but the report shows only one label per product, as I can't figure out where to apply the "Quantity" field to replicate things.

I'm not a VBA programmer but I feel I understand enough to where I could figure out where things should go. From the earlier thread the notion that there's a way to apply a counter drawing from the query gives me hope in solving my problem. I feel like I have a six pack of ideas and I just need the thingy to hold the whole thing together. Help is much appreciated, thanks in advance.

Preferred Solution: MS Access: Multiple copies of pages within a Report

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.)

Using XP and Winfax Pro 10.02

Recently, winfax has been sending multiple copies of page one (6 or 7 copies) and none of pages 2 and 3, but only to some fax numbers. When I contact symantec, tech support says that I must be intentionally or mistakenly sending this. (The suggestion is ridiculous. I tell winfax to send a 3-page document one time, or a 1-page document one time.) Did some searching on the internet and found that as far back as 1998, symantec was aware of this problem. The suggested solution does not make sense now. (In 1998, winfax was version 7 or 8.)

Has anyone else had this type of problem and was able to cure it?

I tried uninstalling and re-installing Winfax, but the problem persists. I tried deleting winfax as a printer and then resetting winfax as a printer, but the problem persists.

Tried using Mighty Fax, as a substitute, but Mighty Fax does not have most of the features I need.

I need help. I send 20-30 faxes per day.

I created a report in Access 2000. It automatically calculates info from a table that I have. For some reason when I print it out it makes 15 copies. The report is only one page and in the navigation at the report it shows only one page. I did notice that when I set up the text boxes for the report it had a section called "Hide Duplicates", I set these to NO. If they were on "yes" then the text boxes would repeat. Not sure if there is something I am missing.

I posted my delimma and OBP worked me through the "MAJORS" of my issues. My LAST issue with this report is this: there are blank pages printing between the 4 subreports that I have inserted. Everything else works perfectly, but I have tried over and over agin to do what I have read in the "MS Access help menu" to no avail. Can someone PLEASE help me? I know the answer will be a simple matter, but I just can not figure out what is wrong.

Hiyo.
Just a general question regarding how best to approach the task of displaying info on an Access report.
Basically, what I need is to have a report that is made up of sections, where each section is based on the same query, but populated with different filters.

These sections are divided into 3 columns (AM, PM, NIGHT) and about 8 small sections per column (let's call them A to H). Each sections shows the same few fields of info, and none will have a massive number of records.
I was thinking of just using 3 sub-reports (one for each column) and simply ordering the records for each using a parent category.
However, I need them to line up horizontally, so Section B for AM would begin at the same vertical position as Section B for PM and Section B for NIGHT, directly after the longest Section A, and so on. Its probably easiest explained in a diagram, so check the attached, and imagine each box is full of data, you'll see what I mean.

The only other way I can think to do it, is to make 1 report out of 24 subreports, one for each section. Then I can guarantee the sections will be aligned correctly.

Cheers for any input...

Hello again.

You can probably turn off the "Can Grow" property of the groups for each report to fix the height, but that means if you then get extra records you would have to manually re-adjust them.

I have a report that opens based on a combo box. The combo box is based on a query and is limited to the list. Basically you select the estimator's name in the text box and press a button to open the report with the related data. Here is the code I am using:

DoCmd.OpenReport "CloseOutRep", acViewPreview, , "[Estimator]= '" & Me.txtEstimator & "'"

The user wants to narrow the reports down by adding two more combo boxes - txtLocation and txtYear. How can I open this report with the additional criteria of

"[Location]= '" & Me.txtLocation & "'"
"[SalesYear]= '" & Me.txtSales & "'"

I guess any criteria would have to be true for the report to display data, which shouldn't be a problem because of limiting the selections to the list in the combo box.

So if this is possible all I will need is a way to make Access assume all records should be displayed when one criterion or another is not chosen.

Any ideas?

Hey Guys,

I running windows 98 on a Gateway desktop with a HP Laser Jet 6L Printer, Here's my situation:

I can't figure this one out. I had to print out about 40 pages of a 2
page document in Word. I go under file/print/change the number of
copies to 40. What happens is, the printer is only printing 1 copy of
each page and isn't recognizing that I want 40 copies. So if I have a 2
page document, or a 3 page document, I get all the pages but not any
additional copies. (What is strange is that the printer window icon
shows the printer assigned to print 40 copies, but if it's only a 2 page
document the printer just stops after 2 pages) Nothing else unusual with
the printer itself and so far I just noticed it today and seems to be
only related to Word. Note that if I print Multiple pages of SINGLE page docs, everything is fine. I don't know what could be wrong.

I used to open 3 and 4 browsers and search in each copy. But I have had this feature work, not work, work again.

Since I put in a router to network 2 PCs for DSL access, again, I can only run 1 copy of the browser again. The second browser opens but addresses only change the original browser window.

When I open a copy and put in an address, then hit enter--that browser copy is unchanged, but the original browser changes !This is the information I wanted to keep for comparison with another site in the second browser.
Once in a while this works successfully and changes take effect in the second window. Is it because one window is minimized? Doesn't seem to be that. I tried WORKING with the original browser window but while that activity may prevent it from being changed, the browser copy doesn't change to the desired site, either, most of the time.

Maybe it is a particular kind of activity that keeps the original browser from changing--not just scrolling, clicking, but typing that is necessary.

I just succeeded in doing this while this window was open--after several tries I went to google and searched. Why did it work this time?

Any ideas?

Thanks

Dears,I have designed a database with many reports of certain importance. basically a report in my DB is one of two types; a Daily Report (requires a single criteria which is the date) and the second is a History report. To view or print a report, I have designed a Filter form to fill in with the report criteria and clicking a button to open the report.The first type (Daily R) work fine without problems. The second type (History R)has a problem. In this report, the criteria are two or three because a history report will retrieve data within a period, so I have to input (FromDate) and (ToDate)and may be adding another criteria which is called a company.In all history reports, the report header will accomodate the two input values of date and extract the rest of report items into the reprot detail area.The problem is, the desigened system doesnot respond well as expected. When I load the filter form to fill in criteria for a history report, I have input the FromDate and ToDate and selected the third criteria (if any), then, the reprot opens without data in it.on the other hand, I tried to load the report directly form opening it, inputing criteria, and it has worked fine without probelms.Would someone expect a key reason for this problem or dirtecly can solve this problem?Appreciate youtr support.Thanks in Advance.mhegazy

I have 3 computers each having itzs own copy of Vista. the CDS have become mixed up. How can I determine which CD belongs to which computer? Is there a way I can look up the key on each computer to be sure which CD belongs to it?

A:Multiple Copies of Vista

I think you will find all the installation discs are the same content wise and contain all versions of Vista. Its your license key that is unique.

Lets just elaborate a little... the discs only contain either 32 or 64 bit software not both. So look under 'system' in control panel and see what your versions are for each PC and if different ( am ix of 32 and 64 then match to the discs that way). If the licence key with the disc is an OEM type (original equipment manufacturer, such as an upgrade disc) then that key can only be used on the PC it was first activated on. If they are full retail copies then you can use them on any PC at any one time.

Is it possible to print multiple copies of the same envelope in Word 2000?
 

A:Multiple Copies of Envelopes

It may depend on what type of envelope you wish to duplicate. Are you printing a return address only? Or creating a self-addressed return envelope? In Word Help under Create and Print an Envelope, it refers you to Tools/Envelopes and Labels/Envelopes. In the Delivery Address box, you can enter the single mailing address and then print all the envelopes you like. Or, using the Return Address box, you can type in the return address you want or enter your default address if you have set it up. Check out the Word Help references for further directions.

If I multiselect 2 folders and copy them to a destination across the network vs select the same folders separately to copy to the same destinations (2 copies), the time difference is unbelievable. Sometimes I cannot always mutliselect them (different folders). Is there any way to make it copy faster?

My guess is Windows 7 is throttling between the 2 processes making it like 5x as long.

I know I can do one copy, then the next, but sometimes I want it to be done at one time (I'm not sitting there watching it).

I was hoping to avoid batch files as these are 1 time things usually.

I guess I would think Windows is smart enough to know I am doing 2 copies with that same source drive and destination and work it out.

Hey ya'll. I'm running Windows 7 64 bit. When I got up this morning a program (WinMHR) that scans processes and files for malware, reported 4 copies of explorer.exe as infected. I always thought there should only be one copy of it. I also did a search for explorer.exe in Everything. Here's a screenshot: 1305909911-clip-117kb.png clip. I actually shows 20 copies of it. I was running an online backup with Digital Lifeboat that I was concerned about, so I rolled back with Rollback Rx hoping to remove these copies of explorer.exe, thinking Lifeboat had something to do with them being there. After rollback, they're still there and that's why I'm posting this.
Hope someone can help me clear this up.
Thanks,

A:Multiple Copies of explorer.exe

My system reports "clean" and I have a dozen listed, most have the same entries as those in your screen shot.

What nasty is your malware scanner program reporting and where are they located?

Also, what version of Win7 are you running? I found this in the WinMHR FAQs -

Why do I get a warning on my 64-bit computer?

WinMHR is currently a 32-bit application. This means WinMHR can not scan running processes that are 64-bit.
You can still check any file using WinMHR, so a 'Quick Scan' or 'Full Scan' will check the files that launch the process that reside on disk.

It's happened to me again and I cannot figure out how to get rid of them.

I have my default printer, an HP Laserjet 6P hooked up to a Sunix parallel port on my PC. I can print from this printer from any application just fine. The problem is that, over time, maintenance across printers has caused multiple copies of this 6P to appear in the printer drop down list - but not one of them shows up in Devices and Printers!

Case in point: I installed the SP1 upgrade with no real trouble. I did find, however, that I had to reinstall my Canon Pro9000 XPS driver. This was painless, but when I did it it automatically made itself the default printer. So in wanting to revert back to my 6P I... could not go to Devices and Printers because it doesn't show up there. I had to Install a New Printer, whereupon it found my 6P just fine and used the available driver. But now it's Copy 4! And it and none of the others show up in Devices and Printers.

How do I get this printer to show up in D&P (any of them!), and how do I wipe these "extra" copies from Win7?

My Windows Task Manager shows multiple Process entries running under the same User Name, ie
3 copies of iexplore.exe under my User Name
2 copies of MsMpEng.exe under SYSTEM
3 copies of svchost.exe under SYSTEM and LOCAL SERVICE
2 copies of svchost.exe under NETWORK SERVICE.

Is this right to have multiple copies running concurrently?
Which of these processes can I safely stop?
The MsMpEng.exe CPU overhead certainly causes a long delay in the loading of IE.
Do the multiple MsMpEng.exe copies contribute to this problem?
(I run Windows XP using Windows Security Essentials, Windows Defender and Spybot).

Many thanks for any help.
 

A:Multiple Process Copies

Multiple copies of SVCHOST.EXE is normal.
IE will open multiple iexplore.exe processes, usually one for each tab, depending on available resources.

If you are using Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE), you should turn off Windows Defender (MsMpEng.exe)
MSE should have disabled Windows Defender in Vista/Win 7, and on XP, it should have uninstalled Windows Defender.

For XP, use Control Panel | Add/Remove Programs to uninstall Windows Defender.
Vista - Turn Windows Defender on or off
Windows 7 - Turn Windows Defender on or off

My system was bought in feb this year (2007) My system details are included in my profile(?)

If anyone can suggest why it should write so many copies (each stored in a uniquely numbered folder) at different dates, I would be most grateful.

Or if someone can tell me if it is safe to delete excess copies of file. (though this will not explain the WHY, and it may just continue to write copies ad nauseaum)

A Tiscali email address (now Talktalk)
A Windows Live Mail Account
Internet speed varies between 0.25mb/s to 2mb/s​

Hi,
I have been working on this problem for a client for over a week now and am getting nowhere!
Originally the problem was that they were receiving multiple copies of the same email each time the opened Outlook Express.
I logged into their mail sever via the internet and cleared all the old emails off the server incase one had become corrupted. They were also suffering incredibly slow internet speeds, (0.25mb/s) so I increased the time OE allowed before deciding the server had timed out. Sadly, none of this worked, so I tried setting up the account afresh having re installed OE and also creating a new identity. The problems remained, so I tried setting up their email account in Outlook 2003, however this made no difference.

The problems then became worse as they could no longer receive ANY emails, but still send them.
I moved on to assuming the problem lay with the mail service provided by Tiscali /TalkTalk, so set up a free account using hotmail, and set up OE to receive. This worked perfectly for about 3 days, but now the problem has returned and again at first they were getting 6 of each email, with that dropping down to none.
I read elsewhere online about deleting the file "Pop3uidl.dbx" however after doing this, they received 10 copies of each email!!!!!

So i had a brand new copy of Vista at home and installed that (which works fine) but my problem is that the previous versions of XP is still on the computer and everytime i start the computer up, it asks me which one to boot up.

similarly: services.exe, services(2).exe, services(3).exe

Are the other copies remnants of some update, and can they be purged?

At first,  the Pgm X that was spawning itself was named some nonsense name --osrao.exe, weyjehvj.exe, lhrrpqzfza.exe, omuhsiefud.exe, funintyu.exe, WSED.exe, RecCtrlU2.exe, ziupwof.exe, equforyfi.exe, etc.-- it would create up to a dozen or so copies and the only way to stop it was to END PROCESS 'em one by one. Usually they'd show up again, sometimes not though.
 
Often the only way to shut my system down was to force it by using the POWER button.
 
So I picked up Malwarebytes and ran it... MB found LOTS of items it wanted to quarantine... and I let it.
 
Ran MB again, it found a few more; quarantined & then deleted everything MB said needed it.
 
System was fine for a couple of days as CPU usage was consistently below the double-digit mark.
 
Then we started a round of Pgm X being dllhost.exe... again, 15-20 copies running when left alone, and the only way to stop 'em was several rounds of END TASk'ing 'em.
 
Now we're up to iexplore.exe being the spawning fool. Malwarebytes hasn't found anything in the last day or two at least.

So it's time for the big guns... you guys.
 
Following are my system specs... if there's anything else you need, lemme know and (it would help if you use ... Read more

I have saved many landscape images on my computer. After a considerable time I have done a search for ( *.jpg ) on my C drive. On many of the images there are multiple copes of that image. I only stored one . Since the size of the file is the same I assume it is the same image. Can you tell me why this is happening. since this is not a ghost of the image and has the same size, these copies are using considerable storage space.

Awhile ago, I had a problem where I would get two copies of the same message from people. The problem went away eventually; don't know why. Now, I will get copy after copy of the same message; in other words, a friend will send me a message and I will keep getting that same message over and over again. I have received up to 20 copies of the same message (!)

Any idea what I can do about this?

I have two .edu email accounts, but when I placed the 2nd order through the student program (741) I realized I was still logged into the same email address.

So, now I have bought two Windows 7 on the same email account, whereas it says you are only allowed to have one per .edu email address.

I got my first copy (Home Premium) about a week ago, and it's already installed and being used. I have not touched (or downloaded) the second copy (Pro), but I've already been charged the $33.

What should I do? Can I download and install this second copy? Will they charge me for the full amount later on?

Thanks a lot in advance.

Seems this is a common problem that hasn't been solved. My laptop HP Pavilion DV7 running Windows 7 worked fine for many years. Took it on a train trip and when back home suddenly had 4 copies of the desktop image. Other than this it works fine. Upgraded driver, rolled back driver. Had some success by re-starting after the problem occurred. My external monitor shows the same images.

One time I flipped it over while it was running, looking at the bottom, and the problem went away. I'm wondering if there is a physical problem with a card or something. The Amtrack train is a bone crusher at times and is a constant pounding. Also wondering if this could be heat related.

Using Windows 7 fax program. We are receiving multiple copies of the same fax (sometimes 10) though the sender says they are only sending one time. Is this a setting issue? Would love to only get one copy delivered.

I recently copied a number of items from a CD onto my desktop. I also copied them from the desktop onto a flashdrive. I'm not sure what I did but now every time I boot on XP, about 40 copies of shortcuts show up on my desk top. How do I stop this from happening?
Thanks.

Need some help, please! Got Win 7 Pro on new Dell....have regretted it 4 the 3 months I've had this machine! Half of my (some) expensive software that claimed to be compatible is NOT! Big problem now is 7 is actually randomly saving multiple copies of files I save, so I now have "My Websites" and a 'copy' within that folder named "My Website"....so this is the problems this is creating:

1) I save a file to "My Websites" (I do websites for dog breeders)

2) I go back to find that same file.....but it's not under "My Websites"...it's now under sub-folder "My Websites"....which is not where I saved it!

3) Also at random, clicking on "My Websites" does not open the folder (depending on which copy of "My Websites" actually opens ..(the main folder or the sub-folder).

4) at that point, more often than not, the computer freezes....sometimes, after several seconds, it will finally open the folder....most times, it stays 'frozen'...have to reboot!

To make matters worse, this cliche does not 'synchronize' both "My Websites" folders...so files between the 2 folders are not showing the same files...some have been updated but others have not.

Others things, files/folders, have also 'self-duplicated' themselves ....weirdest thing I've ever come across.

Open to any suggestions.....including a little guidance to setup either dual boot (making XP Pro my first boot) or a VPC. I have to go with the OS... Read more

A:7 saving multiple copies at random...???

Hi Ladyluck
Need a bit more information here. What program are you using when you save the files to My Websites? what is the program that you were led to believe is compatible with Win 7 only to find it is not? have you tried to run it it "compatibilty mode"?

Using Outlook 2016, Windows 10. In the last few days, I've started getting multiple copies of the same email. Not all emails, but most. Some, just two or three. Others, up to a dozen of the same email. I've got four accounts at two different servers (RoadRunner and GoDaddy) ... and it's happening to all four, which is why I think it's an Outlook problem.

Additional clue: Some of the emails I'm getting multiple copies of are from last month ... stuff that had been deleted many days ago.

First instinct is to look at my settings (both POP accounts), to see if things are set up correctly. But that makes no sense ? up until two or three days ago, everything was working exactly the way it should. I haven't made any system changes, haven't installed new software ... can't think of anything that would've made this just start happening.

Any way to make this stop that doesn't require a hammer?

Thanks, anybody.......

Windows 8.1, Outlook 2016 and the same thing has started happening to me. I have made no changes to any settings, but suddenly I'm getting multiple copies of emails.

It looks like it started on Monday.........could it be related to the leap year?

Through the process of registering for this forum and typing this post, I have hit "send/receive" 3 times, and now I have 3 copies of one email. At this point it seems quote random - 3 copies of one email, but only 1 copy of another etc.
Edit: A bit more searching and it seems to be a "known bug" introduced in the last 2016 release in February. Apparently happens if the "leave a copy on the server" setting is enabled. Microsoft advise either removing the setting so all messages are deleted, or using IMAP instead of POP3. Tough luck for those of us stuck with slow and expensive internet connections that make IMAP untenable!!!

Have been having some problems lately. Hitman Pro 3.5 indicated some problems in the root. Got a number of chkdisk messages. They have finally gone away after multiple reboots. Was running System Suite 10 but removed it and have Microsoft Security Essentials running right now. I have seen as many as 8 copies of mshta.exe running as well as 8 copies of svchost.exe currently running. Looking for some help. Thanks
