How to activate command buttons II

Hello again, This is a continuation from my last problem. I am having trouble with getting some of my command buttons to work properly. When the add record command button is clicked, a window pops up saying "You can't go to the specified record". I right clicked the command button and went to properties, under the "event" heading and the "On Click" option I clicked the "..." which brings me to the code page which shows the following: Private Sub Add_Record_Click() On Error GoTo Err_Add_Record_Click DoCmd.GoToRecord , , acNewRec Exit_Add_Record_Click: Exit Sub Err_Add_Record_Click: MsgBox Err.Description Resume Exit_Add_Record_Click End Sub I'm not sure what this means but from this information and am not familiar with Microsoft Access. Can you find out what I have to do to get this command button to work properly as simply put as possible? Thanks for your help -Lensa

Hi Lensa, The code is fine there should not be any problem with it. Do not change anything on it. In my opinion the buttons and code has nothing to do with it since they are done automatically and usually work fine. When you press the add new button you are not just creating a new record you are also updating the last record. This button just send you to a new empty record for you to fill. From my experience the error message is due to 3 major reasons: 1. Your record source for this form is a query that cannot be updated 2. You don't have writing permissions to the database. Check and see if the file is locked or its on read only, Check security options and see if the database is read only etc. 3. Your records are locked by the table setting for some reasons, primary key fields might create duplicates. If its just a table try updating the table without a form and see what happens. As I wrote above the problem is with the record source or the database and since I can't see what you have there I can't help you further. I would also suggest you should practice with a simple table first before going into advance queries. Create a table with some simple fields like: ID - Primary key - Auto Number First name - Text Last name - Text Then create a form of that table and start filling in the names and test all the buttons, that will give you an idea of each button and I am sure it will be easier. Good luck Daniel

The machine had to be turned off while in the processing of doing a design. How can I get back to the last stitch so I can continue with the design?

I don't quite understand the question but I'll try to answer what I think you mean.
Most embroidery machines have a command pause and command backspace in order to go backwards to a point that you want to correct. To get it going again it has a continue command in order to get it going on again from the point you backed up to. It is unnecessary to remove the hoop in order to do this.

Hampton bay model uc 7083t light very dim when turned on

You probably have one or the other of the remotes pictured below:


In both cases, if you press and HOLD the button labeled "Light / Dimmer" (top remote) or the top round button with the light bulb icon on it (bottom remote), the intensity of the lamp will become brighter until it is at maximum and then become dimmer until it almost turns off . If you continue to hold the button, it will begin to get brighter once again. Pressing the button quickly simply turns it off when it is on, and on when it is off.

The buttons on the remote leave a bit to be desired as far as how well they work. You should keep an eye on the red LED indicator while pressing any button. If it fails to light the command is never sent. If it stops lighting while holding a button in, (to send a dimming or brighten command to the lamp) the command stops being sent and the intensity of the lamp no longer changes. I have found that sometimes I have to press the edge of the button to get them to work. If yours is giving you trouble - you might try that, too.

I hope this helps & good luck!

Error code 80010006 and ervery time it gets to 38% and it gives me that error code this was when i was tyying to do the 3.30 firmware update

Hello jenky2010

This error code relates to the PS3 having trouble accessing a file. This usually occurs when the PS3 is turned off while saving or accessing a file.

To rectify the problem, you'll have to into Safe Mode, and then select "Restore File System". If you're not sure how to enter Safe Mode, follow these instructions:

1. Turn off the PS3 by holding down the power button until the power light is red, then release.

2. Hold down the power button again. This should be shortly followed by a short beep, indicating that the PS3 is turning on.

3. Continue holding the power button, and after about 5 seconds you should hear a second beep.

4. Continue holding the power button, and after a further 5 seconds, you should hear a quick double beep. Release the power button. If you've successfully activated Safe Mode, you should receive the message" Connect a controller using a USB cable and then press the PS button". Do this.

5. Select "Restore File System". Follow the on-screen instructions.


Hope this helps, good luck. If you require any further assistance, please contact me.


When I press the power button of my CPU i hear 3 Continuous beeps which repeats thrice. Again the beeps come during the windows login. This beep was not there in the begining. It started recently. But...

It is true that your computer is working properly without any trouble.Three continuous beeps means that your keyboard component is not ready to input the data.That's why it is calling you as beeps.You might have to check your keyboard that it is attached with the CPU properly or not.

How to activate command buttons

Not w/o you sharing how you did it step by step. Can you add some screenshots of the steps you tok to get there? In general "add record" should jump to another form that allows you to enter your data for the new record and "save" it.
