I still need your expert guidance on the issue below:
(1) I have form bound to customer table, the type of customers we have range from students, trading customers, hotels or tourist & patients. Since the only difference is in terms of data capturing and the nature of customers in question.
So, we want the same form to be used to across the board BUT with option to select the type of data applicable, for example see below:
• Company (This may be used for general trading)
• StudentName (This could be for schools)
• TouristName (this could be for hotels)
The above three controls must be made optional with a check box so that only customers applicable in that business must be VISIBLE if they are NOT checked. Question
With the use of VBA how do I use a check box to hide those controls that are not required to be updated depending to the business nature AND unhide after update. The issue here is how to code the checkbox (Option39) vs control name (studentName) etc, for example something in this line.
Afterupdate option39()Me.StudentName .Visible = FalseExist SubEnd If
The advantage of the suggested system will save us from creating independent tables per each business category. The good news here is that even if I’m sitting at 120 tables, 350 queries, 1 macro & 120 Modules, no single object failed the MS access performance analyser test. If you look at the actual application performance you might think that it has only 4 tables and a few queries, its extremely fast. The application covers the following:
