MS Access Form - Checkbox selected not updating True/False

Hi,

Don't know very much about forms so sorry if this is a roundabout way of describing my isssue.

I have a table of sales orders that includes a Yes/No field added on called 'SelectedPrint'. I've added this field onto a continuous form as a checkbox so and when the user checks an order, they can print it by clicking a button which runs a vba coded event to run a report for all orders in he order table where 'SelectedPrint' is true.

    strSQL = "SELECT Contracts.InvoiceNum FROM Contracts WHERE (((Contracts.SelectedPrint)=True));"

Open in new window


This works for the most part, however the very last order I tick as Print Selected never prints.

I've found that if I click the checkbox, then click the background of the form so the checkbox is selected but not active (i.e the little pencil and dashed border around the object disappears) then it will actually print the order.

Is there anything I need to change in my code or object properties to get around this?

Many thanks,

When you click the checkbox you go to the next record so the prev record get a post, but when you click on the last and then click the button to print that record won't be posted. Add a table.post in your code before the query.

Woops I'd actually posted an old code.

Would the same apply to this one?:

Private Sub Command2_Click()
Forms!Form1.SetFocus
Dim rst As DAO.Recordset

Set rst = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("SELECT DISTINCT [Account], [InvoiceNum] FROM [ContactTotals] WHERE (((Contracts.SelectedPrint)=True)) ORDER BY [Account];", dbOpenSnapshot)
Set rst2 = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("SELECT DISTINCT [InvoiceNum] FROM [ContactTotals] ORDER BY [InvoiceNum];", dbOpenSnapshot)

Do While Not rst.EOF
    strRptFilter = "[InvoiceNum] = " & Chr(34) & rst![InvoiceNum] & Chr(34)

    DoCmd.OutputTo acOutputReport, "InvTotal", acFormatPDF, "C:\Scripts" & "\" & rst![Account] & " - " & rst![InvoiceNum] & ".pdf"
    DoEvents
    rst.MoveNext
   
Loop

rst.Close
Set rst = Nothing

End Sub

Hi
1)You didn't declare rst2
2)Why  did you define rst2, it seems that you don't use it at all
3)Can you precise what do you want to do exactly

Yes, that rst2 is not needed (I remember that we have already disscussed about this piece of code).

Anyway try adding a savecord in the Command2_Click()

I mean:
Private Sub Command2_Click()
DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdSaveRecord
Forms!Form1.SetFocus
Dim rst As DAO.Recordset

Set rst = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("SELECT DISTINCT [Account], [InvoiceNum] FROM [ContactTotals] WHERE (((Contracts.SelectedPrint)=True)) ORDER BY [Account];", dbOpenSnapshot)

Do While Not rst.EOF
    strRptFilter = "[InvoiceNum] = " & Chr(34) & rst![InvoiceNum] & Chr(34)

    DoCmd.OutputTo acOutputReport, "InvTotal", acFormatPDF, "C:\Scripts" & "\" & rst![Account] & " - " & rst![InvoiceNum] & ".pdf"
    DoEvents
    rst.MoveNext
   
Loop

rst.Close
Set rst = Nothing

End Sub

You can also set Dirty off:
Private Sub Command2_Click()

    Dim rst As DAO.Recordset

    If Me.Dirty = True Then
        ' Record is not saved.
        Me.Dirty = False
    End If


    Set rst = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("SELECT DISTINCT [Account], [InvoiceNum] FROM [ContactTotals] WHERE (((Contracts.SelectedPrint)=True)) ORDER BY [Account];", dbOpenSnapshot)

    Do While Not rst.EOF
        strRptFilter = "[InvoiceNum] = " & Chr(34) & rst![InvoiceNum] & Chr(34)

       DoCmd.OutputTo acOutputReport, "InvTotal", acFormatPDF, "C:\Scripts" & "\" & rst![Account] & " - " & rst![InvoiceNum] & ".pdf"
       DoEvents
       rst.MoveNext
   
    Loop

    rst.Close
    Set rst = Nothing

End Sub

Thanks again Ferrucio! Yes you're right that's a remnant of my previous code before you cleaned/fixed it for me.
