In the Design view for your form element (eg textbox), go to the Data Tab. Look at the options for:
Input Mask, Validation Rule and Validation Text. You can use any combination of these to force a user to enter something in the field. If you just want to check that the contents of the element has a non-zero length, then you can write an event (Events tab) to check the length of the values entered. If 0, then throw a message box and re-focus the cursor on the textbox.

I want to create a function in access to calculate a total. Where can I find a step by step guide?


If you already have a field where you want the total to be if you right click on the field and go to properties and find out the name of the field and also the 2 or more other fields that you want to add or multiply together then you can make the total field equal to the formula ie

if you have 3 fields

Field one = value1
Field two = value2
Field total = total

in design mode you would right click on the total field and go to properties and in the properties there should be a field where you can enter a formula.

in there you would enter something along the lines of

=value1.value + value2.value

Then when you have it normal view ie you open it, it should always add the values together and put the sum of them into the total field.

If you want an example database post back and I will create one.

Validating in jsp


JavaScript Form Validation JavaScript can be used to validate input data in HTML forms before sending off the content to a server.
Form data that typically are checked by a JavaScript could be:
  • has the user left required fields empty?
  • has the user entered a valid e-mail address?
  • has the user entered a valid date?
  • has the user entered text in a numeric field?
Required Fields The function below checks if a required field has been left empty. If the required field is blank, an alert box alerts a message and the function returns false. If a value is entered, the function returns true (means that data is OK):
function validate_required(field,alerttxt)
{
with (field)
{
if (value==null||value=="")
{
alert(alerttxt);return false;
}
else
{
return true;
}
}
} The entire script, with the HTML form could look something like this:
<html>
<head>
<script type="text/javascript">
function validate_required(field,alerttxt)
{
with (field)
{
if (value==null||value=="")
{alert(alerttxt);return false;}
else {return true}
}
} function validate_form(thisform)
{
with (thisform)
{
if (validate_required(email,"Email must be filled out!")==false)
{email.focus();return false;}
}
}
</script>
</head> <body>
<form action="submitpage.htm"
onsubmit="return validate_form(this)"
method="post">
Email: <input type="text" name="email" size="30">
<input type="submit" value="Submit">
</form>
</body> </html>
E-mail Validation The function below checks if the content has the general syntax of an email.
This means that the input data must contain at least an @ sign and a dot (.). Also, the @ must not be the first character of the email address, and the last dot must at least be one character after the @ sign:
function validate_email(field,alerttxt)
{
with (field)
{
apos=value.indexOf("@");
dotpos=value.lastIndexOf(".");
if (apos<1||dotpos-apos<2)
{alert(alerttxt);return false;}
else {return true;}
}
} The entire script, with the HTML form could look something like this:
<html>
<head>
<script type="text/javascript">
function validate_email(field,alerttxt)
{
with (field)
{
apos=value.indexOf("@");
dotpos=value.lastIndexOf(".");
if (apos<1||dotpos-apos<2)
{alert(alerttxt);return false;}
else {return true;}
}
} function validate_form(thisform)
{
with (thisform)
{
if (validate_email(email,"Not a valid e-mail address!")==false)
{email.focus();return false;}
}
}
</script>
</head> <body>
<form action="submitpage.htm"
onsubmit="return validate_form(this);"
method="post">
Email: <input type="text" name="email" size="30">
<input type="submit" value="Submit">
</form>
</body> </html>

Need the ability to "tab" from field to field on right of kybd


When you press ENTER to finish working in a cell, Microsoft Excel moves the cursor one cell down by default. However, you can select the direction in which you want the cursor to move.
  1. On the Tools menu, click Options.
  2. On the Edit tab, do one of the following:
    • To change the direction in which the cursor moves, select the Move selection after Enter check box, and then select a direction in the Direction box.
    • To keep the cursor in the current cell, clear the Move selection after Enter check box.
Note When a range or set of ranges is selected, pressing ENTER moves the cursor within the range or set or ranges only.

You need to set up security and different profiles for different people. that is the safest way. But an easier way is to have you enter data in one form and them enter their data in another form. In their form edit the properties of the fields that you want left alone. You need to set the properties to locked in the form where they do their data entry but leave them unlocked where you do your data entry. Just creat a second form by saving the first one under a different name. Also you might want to remove the fields from the tab stop list.

Restict closing the main form when some controls on the subform are empty


Hi there. I didn't notice this was so old until I had already worked on it for some time. Did you get this the way you want it? If not, I suggest either using a BeforeUpdate control to ensure the condition is met that the subform contain data, or validate the particular field(s) with isnull. Thanks for posting back if you still need help, or otherwise rating FixYa!
