Searching An Access Database?

May 30, 2011

I tried looking up Threads that would search through an access database, but I keep running into this:


502 Bad Gateway

The server returned an invalid or incomplete response.Is there any threads that would help me? For example, in my program if I wanted to search for a certain customer I would enter their info in text box and it would search through my Access database. I have all ready added the data source and even added a section where they could add in somebody to the database. But I can't seem to get the search part down?

Searching Data In An Access Database?

Apr 28, 2011

I know how to search for one specific number from a single line in an access database using a query, but now I have to search through a whole database and display each instance. Ex) I search the number "1" in column "1" of the database and it has "2" instances. So now I have to take the corresponding data in the rows next to it in order to display them in the label.

search: "1", both results are ID = "1"

dates amount
10/13/2009 $43.00
12/25/2009 $86.00

I know how to put the results for "1" line of a database into the .item field, but im confused on how to search multiple lines of a database and store multiple items. Heres what I have so far...

Private Sub btnShowPay_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnShowPay.Click

ComboBox Event To Select From Access Database

Jun 5, 2011

I am using VB 2008 Express to connect to an Access 2007 database. I have a combo box called SelectYearMonth that is populated by the database. When I used the Access report VBA, I used the AfterUpdate() event to calculate a sum. I need to know how to do the same operation in VB 2008 Express using the SelectedIndexChanged event of the combo box.

When I made a report in Access using VBA I coded my calculation as:
Me.ExactReprintTextbox = DSum("Pages", "HBELP_FINAL_Q", "YEARMONTH = " & [SelectYearMonth] & " AND JOBTYPE = 'E'")
While this works great with Access VBA, this syntax does not work in VB 2008 Express. How do I code this in VB 2008 Express?

I need to calculate the sum of all "Pages" of a particular "JOBTYPE" in the Access database for the YEARMONTH selected in the combobox. I have a query in Access called "JobTypeExact_Query" that contains all the pages of that particular JOBTYPE that I need. What I need to do is limit the calculation results to the YEARMONTH selected in the combobox.

Updatable Label Text According To Combobox Filled With An Access Database?

Apr 16, 2012

I'm using Visual Basic 2008 Express Edition, so I have a combobox that gets filled with items from a data base made with Microsoft Acces, the combobox is filled with the values stored in a column from a table in de database so the user can select an "option" from it, I want to add labels that show the values for the corresponding row of that column. I used the Data Source panel to drag and drop the labels corresponding to the values that I want and it works it show the value that I want when I compile the application (at least I think it does, it could be that it's only selecting the first entry) the problem is that when I select a diferent entry on the combobox the labels don't refresh with the new values. How can I do that?


how does Visual Basic Populates de combobox and gets the value of the other Acces DB entrys to change the .text value of the labels? And I mean the actual code that does that.

I am having a problem. The IO.Directory.GetFiles code is resulting in error do to the fact that it is trying to access the Temp folder in the Windows folder on drive C:.

Is there somewhere i can give my program administrator access? If not then am i able to skip the files in that location?

Handling Unauthorized-access Exceptions When Searching Folders

May 18, 2010

If any directory within a set being searched by the [URL] or [URL] methods contains a junction point, the entire method fails and returns zero results on my tests under VB 2008. I would like to make the call more robust: to return the folders or files not blocked by access restrictions and to note the folders which were blocked. Do those methods offer a means to do this, or is a recursive folder-by-folder call necessary?
