Hi,

What is the VB code to populate data in a current form based on data from another form? The current form (formA) was opened by one of two other forms.

if (formB is open)  then
    FieldO_formA = FieldFrom_formB
else
   FieldOn_formA = FieldFrom_formC
 endif

formA was opened by either formB or formC

Thank you,
AEN

if  CurrentProject.Allforms("FormB").IsLoaded then
    FieldO_formA = Forms!formB.YourFieldName
else
   FieldOn_formA = Forms!formC.YourOtherFieldName
 end if

Open in new window

If your code is on the current form (FormA), you can do this:

if  CurrentProject.Allforms("FormB").IsLoaded then
    Me.YourFieldOnFormA  = Forms!formB.YourFieldName
else
   Me.YourFieldOnFormA = Forms!formC.YourOtherFieldName
 end if

Open in new window



If the code is NOT on form A, use the full form reference:

if  CurrentProject.Allforms("FormB").IsLoaded then
    Forms!FormA.YourFieldOnFormA  = Forms!formB.YourFieldName
else
   Forms!FormA.YourFieldOnFormA = Forms!formC.YourOtherFieldName
 end if

Open in new window

Credit to mbizup, but here's a shorter, less efficient, harder to read 1 line version.  Just so you're aware there's other ways.

Me.YourFieldOnFormA = iif(CurrentProject.Allforms("FormB").IsLoaded, Forms!formB.YourFieldName, Forms!formC.YourOtherFieldName)
