MSACCESS VBA to copy Billing Address to Shipping Address - Bug

Posted on 2010-09-23

I have some code that copies one address (Incident address) to another address field (Home address) at the push of a button in an Access 2007 form.  There is another button that copies the Home address to the Mailing address.

There are 2 buttons, then: btnCopyIncAdd, and btnCopyHomAdd.  Pressing a button should prompt "Are you sure?" with a yes or no.  If the user presses yes, the address is copied.

There are 2 problems:

Pressing btnCopyIncAdd causes Access to seemingly stop responding.  If I wait for about 10 seconds, then maximize a window (Chrome, Outlook, it doesn't really matter) on top of Access, then move that window away, the "Are you sure?" box shows up.  I can press yes, and it seems to work.

Pressing btnCopyHomAdd does the same thing, but it doesn't actually copy the home address to the mailing address.

See the VBA code below.  I have between beginner and intermediate knowledge of VBA and intermediate knowledge of Access.

This might have something to do with the Me. controls and how I have them set up.  I've tried them a couple different ways, but I can't remember if any worked.

Thanks!
Private Sub btnCopyHomAdd_MouseUp(Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, X As Single, Y As Single)

If MsgBox("Are you sure?", vbQuestion + vbYesNo) <> vbYes Then

Else

MaiAddress = Me.HomAddress

MaiCity = Me.HomCity

MaiState = Me.HomState

MaiZip = Me.HomZip

Me.Requery

End If

End Sub



Private Sub btnCopyIncAdd_MouseUp(Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, X As Single, Y As Single)

If MsgBox("Are you sure?", vbQuestion + vbYesNo) <> vbYes Then

Else

HomAddress = Me.IncAddress

HomCity = Me.IncCity

HomState = Me.IncState

HomZip = Me.IncZip

Me.Requery

End If

End Sub

use the Click event of the button

also, what are these?
MaiAddress
MaiCity
MaiState
MaiZip

are they textboxes in your form bound to fields of a table?
Private Sub btnCopyHomAdd_Click()

If MsgBox("Are you sure?", vbQuestion + vbYesNo) <> vbYes Then

Else

MaiAddress = Me.HomAddress

MaiCity = Me.HomCity

MaiState = Me.HomState

MaiZip = Me.HomZip

Me.Requery

End If

End Sub



Private Sub btnCopyIncAdd_Click()

If MsgBox("Are you sure?", vbQuestion + vbYesNo) <> vbYes Then

Else

HomAddress = Me.IncAddress

HomCity = Me.IncCity

HomState = Me.IncState

HomZip = Me.IncZip

Me.Requery

End If

End Sub

Some slight changes to the code:
Private Sub btnCopyHomAdd_MouseUp(Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, X As Single, Y As Single)

If MsgBox("Are you sure?", vbQuestion + vbYesNo) = vbYes Then
Me.MaiAddress = Me.HomAddress
Me.MaiCity = Me.HomCity
Me.MaiState = Me.HomState
Me.MaiZip = Me.HomZip
Me.Requery
End If

End Sub

Private Sub btnCopyIncAdd_MouseUp(Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, X As Single, Y As Single)

If MsgBox("Are you sure?", vbQuestion + vbYesNo) = vbYes Then
Me.HomAddress = Me.IncAddress
Me.HomCity = Me.IncCity
Me.HomState = Me.IncState
Me.HomZip = Me.IncZip
 Me.Requery
End If

 End Sub  
I would also move this code to the OnClick event of the buttons, rather then the mouse up.

@Capricorn1: these are fields in the table, not the textboxes.  The textboxes are named txt_MaiAddress, txt_MaiCity, etc.

@JDettman: When I set Me.MaiAddress = Me.HomAddress and so forth, it throws an error that Me.MaiAddress doesn't exist.

Using Capricorn1's question about that they are, it hinted to me to set the VBA to the text boxes rather than the database fields.  This worked (see code below) to copy the addresses perfectly.

Now the only problem that still exists (it is now set to click) is that "Are you sure?" doesn't fully pop-up.  It is no longer slow (I can maximize Chrome and drag it away and the button is there without me waiting 10 seconds).  It's still a pop-under-ish bug.
Private Sub btnCopyHomAdd_Click()
If MsgBox("Are you sure?", vbQuestion + vbYesNo) <> vbYes Then
Else
txt_MaiAddress = txt_HomAddress
txt_MaiCity = txt_HomCity
txt_MaiState = txt_HomState
txt_MaiZip = txt_HomZip
Me.Requery
End If
End Sub

Private Sub btnCopyIncAdd_Click()
If MsgBox("Are you sure?", vbQuestion + vbYesNo) <> vbYes Then
Else
txt_HomAddress = txt_IncAddress
txt_HomCity = txt_IncCity
txt_HomState = txt_IncState
txt_HomZip = txt_IncZip
Me.Requery
End If
End Sub

That didn't do it.  I've attached the database.  See if it does it for you.  Thanks!

That is definitely the problem.

It was referencing [Contacts Extended] instead of [Contacts Extreme].  Changing that solved it.  I suppose it was doing a whole lot of cross-querying and running 10 miles when it needed a yard (or metre to any Brits reading this).

Yay!  It works.  Thanks for the help!
