Hi Experts,

I really need Experts help to enable me to edit/update information that was entered in Database (CMR DataSheet). User selects the row that requiring an update/edit in Detail View (Userform1)

Once the row selected, the user will click the edit (command button8). The userform1(all the components- proposed date to remark) showed in userform1. User now able to update/edit and save the new information (override old info)

I have attached the .xls file for your perusal. Hope Expert can help me to create this edit function.

No password required for database, just click "OK"

Well don't know if I got you correctly but here are my observation:
1. The form UserForm1 alltogether is not showing ? Is this normal ?
2. How is it supposed to show ? when you click on Database ? As now when you click on Database it is showing the table with the data is this normal ?

Pls clarify so I can assist you better.

Hi gowflow,

Thanks for seeking more clarification.

When you open the WB, you can see CMR activity 2010 with 3 control buttons, one of it is "Update Activity', you need to click this button, then select any date. The userform1 will pop-pop.

Please refer the attached image file and I've described more detail. Please let me know if you need more information.

Sure sorry for the delay but am working on it. It appeared to be more than my initial thought.
I need to add a routine to edit then make sure to remove the record selected from the list to prevent doubles and then add a routine to save .. and to be able to find all the fields. Like some of the checkbox have ALL channels presume that all chkboxes are ticked? or simply the chkbox All Channels?.

Let me recap your request:
You want the user to select an item that was already entered and when he presses EDIT you want that record to be loaded in the input boxes for it to be modified by the user and when he presses Save then it will save it for him again.

Is it ok if we don't keep the same row where the record was originally inputed and once it is edited then it is saved again at the last record ? do you have a problem with this or you always need the record to remain in the same location (or row) it was originally saved ?

Ok fine. Don't know if that's what your looking for, but pls try it and let me know your comments. I know its not perfect it still need some finetuning (like preventing users to use save on an empty sheet etc ...)

Appreciate your comments

Hi,

I really like it. It's good idea to prevent users to use save option on an empty sheet/rows. I noticed I can't save the edited information, other than that everything looks perfect. If possible can you wrap the Detail Activity and Remark column in Detail View (userform)? Let say we've entered lengthy sentences, if we wrapped these areas that we can read it easily. Now the words are truncated if its too long. If you managed to rectify this then its look more presentable. If this is impossible or distracting your routine, just ignore it.

Thanks a lot, I believe to wrap text in "Detail Activity" and "Remark" is something that we can't achieve, am right?
