Access 2007 using VBA:  Have a table built with a cross-tab query with qty values in columns whose names change constantly.  The ROW always contains in the first column, Column(0), the Customer.  The second column, Column(1) is always the total shipped and each column thereafter represents a city to which the qty is shipped, i.e....

CUSTOMER         TTL SHIPPED          CITY_1       CITY_2      CITY_3      CITY_(i)
Customer_1            1200                                     600                            600
Customer_2              300                    300
Customer_3            1000                      25                            975
Customer_(x)              10                                       5                                 5

OBJECTIVE:  Cycle through the recordset by column and change the current value from what it is to current value/total shipped to get a percentage value relative to the ROW TTL_SHIPPED not the sum of the column.  I am using the following code.  I get an "Invalid use of NULL" error.  The (i) does increment but I can't get by the value change.      

Private Sub Form_Load()
 

    '////// For recalculating quantities as a percent of Total Shipped.  ///////

    Dim rs As Object, varPctShip As Single, varCurrVal As Single

    

    varPctShip = 0

    varCurrVal = 0
 

    Set rs = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("tbl_temp_freight_sort_cost")

    

    With rs

        

        rs.MoveFirst

 

            '////// Cycle through columns, regardless of name and number.  //////////

            '       1st Column is referenced as column zero.

            

            For i = 2 To rs.Fields.Count - 1

            

                varCurrVal = rs.Fields(i).Value

                

                If varCurrVal <> 0 Then

                

                varPctShip = varCurrVal / (rs.Fields(1).Value)

                

                .Edit

                !rs.Fields(i) = varPctShip

                .Update

                

                End If

            

            Next
 

        rs.MoveNext

        

        End With
 

End Sub

Maybe this is available in the cross-tab query that builds the table in the first place.  I couldn't get that to work because I needed the total calculated prior to running the query i nthe first place.

You need to check for NULL or 0 values:

For i = 2 To rs.Fields.Count - 1
  '/Fields(i) and Fields(1) should be both NOT NULL and <> 0
  If Nz(rs.Fields(i),0) <> 0 AND Nz(rs.Fields(1),0) <> 0 Then
    .Edit
    !rs.Fields(i) = rs.Field(i) / rs.Fields(1)
    .Update
  End If

Next i
           
0

The code fails at line 20 before the valuation of the variable.

The Bang after the .Edit gives an error of item not found so I removed it and this worked BUT for only one record.  

I followed the code for the first record and it cycles fine until it gets to the last column then goes to rs.MoveNext and fails to move to the next record and cycle again.  

I have added a check on the recordset to make sure it doesn't run out until it's done but this has sent it into an endless loop for some reason.  I got it to stop and it doesn't seem to like the 'method' referenced in 'recordset_2'.  I have no idea where it came up with that comment.

New code follows...
Private Sub Form_Load()
 

    '////// For recalculating quantities as a percent of Total Shipped.  ///////

    Dim rs As Object, varPctShip As Single, varCurrVal As Single

    

    varPctShip = 0

    varCurrVal = 0
 

    Set rs = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("tbl_temp_freight_sort_cost")

    

    With rs

        

        Do While (Not (rs.EOF))

        

        rs.MoveFirst

 

            '////// Cycle through columns, regardless of name and number.  //////////

            '       1st Column is referenced as column zero.

            

            For i = 2 To rs.Fields.Count - 1

            

                If IsNull(rs.Fields(i).Value) = False Or rs.Fields(i).Value <> 0 Then

            

                varCurrVal = rs.Fields(i).Value

                

                varPctShip = varCurrVal / (rs.Fields(1).Value)

                

                .Edit

                rs.Fields(i) = varPctShip

                .Update

                

                End If

            

            Next
 

        rs.MoveNext

        

        Loop

        

     End With
 

End Sub

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Swap line 13 and 15 in the second code submission and it works fabulously!!  Thanks LSM for the push over the edge!

Sometimes it takes another pair of eyes.  Thanks LSM.  Your answer to check the null prior to setting the value worked.  I had to get the Bang (!) out of the item reference in line 27 for the field to get the edit to work properly but you get the full credit for the NULL thing.  The BORG is alive!!
