Question about Microsoft Office Access 2003 (077-02871) for PC

Access 2003 HELP PLEASE!

I am an expert user of Access but very green when it comes to code. I have a problem with a canteen databse I am designing. In short, each employee is listed in tblEmployees - they have a field (among others) for Username and Lunch Password and Visitor Allowed (some employees are allowed to order lunch for guests on the company account - I have made this a yes/no data type). I have created a parameter query as the source for the lunch order from so it that triggers the employee to enter their username and password. The subform contains the lunch order fields from tblLunchOrders. The problem is that - when this form is accessed from the switchboard - I need it to do 2 things...

  1. Check that they have entered a password that is on the list - If not it should bring up a message and not open the form. I tried adding this code to the main forms "On Load" property...
Private Sub Form_Load()
If IsNull(Lunch_Password) Then
MsgBox ("Incorrect User Name or Password. Please try again.")
On Error GoTo Err_Command67_Click


Exit Sub

MsgBox Err.Description
Resume Exit_Command67_Click
End If
End Sub

  1. If the password is correct they might still not be authorised to order lunch for a guest so after checking the password it needs to check and see if the 'Visitor Allowed' field is switched on - if it is... it must open the form... if not it must bring up a msg and not open the form. I tried adding the following code in conjunction with the above on the main form (it didn't work) so I tried adding the code to the "On Load" property of the subform...
Private Sub Form_Load()
If Visitor_Allowed = 0 Then
MsgBox ("You are not authorised to order lunch for a visitor. Please contact accounts if you have any queries.")
End If
End Sub

Any suggestions. This database needs to go live tomorrow morning! It's now 8:30pm in SA. I am desperate and feeling very blonde and out of my depth. Would really appreciate the correct code. Many thank for reading this. Sharon King.

How Do I re-build Outlook 2011 for mac Database? Re-cuild utility fails at every attempt?

Even if you manage to rebuild your database, you can't import the data into the windows outlook. Although both versions look the same, they use different database structures. just renaming the data file, only will destroy it, when you try to open it.
just Google for outlook data structure 2010 2011 and read what wikipedia has to say on this.
It will take an expert, to help you with this.

Anti-spyware does not clear after loading updates. Error loading exclusion databse

If you want to get rid of spy-ware, I would suggest downloading Spybot and Ad-Aware. Install these, update them and then scan your PC and remove anything they find. These tend to work much better than software you can purchase. Experts use both of these.

CODES for entering an I.D number using vba

Try the help built into Excel and give yourself time to absorb it; Excel has some of the best help in the business. VBA may be more complex than you need to solve a data entry problem. If you're trying to add data input masks in a database, why don't you try Access (the help for which is admittedly weaker because database programming is among the most complex of all productivity apps)? I learned VBA from 3 books I rented from a good public library over the course of a project that was about a month long, (because) at some point Microsoft abandoned the idea of teaching it via help screens. Still, you might join a MS developer site and those are loaded with detailed explanations and many other experts. I hope this helps... I feel your pain.

Validation using Excel VBA code

Thats a lot of form work to be expecting out of Excel. You might be better off using Access, creating a table. If you need to export it back to a spreadsheet you can. The validation controls are better in Access and don't have a lot of limitations to them.

Good luck on that
