Bonus TIPS for Successful Posting

Try a Search First
It is highly recommended that a Search be done on your topic before posting, as many questions have been answered in prior posts. As with any search engine, the shorter the search term, the more "hits" will be returned, but the more specific the search term is, the greater the relevance of those "hits". Searching for "table" might well return every message on the board while "tablesum" would greatly restrict the number of messages returned.

When you do post
First, make sure you are posting your question in the correct forum. For example, if you post an issue regarding Desktop applications on the Mobile & Browser Applications board , not only will your question not be seen by the appropriate audience, it may also be removed or relocated.

The more detail you provide about your problem or question, the more likely someone is to understand your request and be able to help. A sample database with a minimum of records (and its support files, zipped together) will make it much easier to diagnose issues with your application. Screen shots of error messages are especially helpful.

When explaining how to reproduce your problem, please be as detailed as possible. Describe every step, click-by-click and keypress-by-keypress. Otherwise when others try to duplicate your problem, they may do something slightly different and end up with different results.

A note about attachments
You may only attach one file to each message. Attachment file size is limited to 2MB. If you need to include several files, you may do so by zipping them into a single archive.

If you forgot to attach your files to your post, please do NOT create a new thread. Instead, reply to your original message and attach the file there.

When attaching screen shots, it is best to attach an image file (.BMP, .JPG, .GIF, .PNG, etc.) or a zip file of several images, as opposed to a Word document containing the screen shots. Because Word documents are prone to viruses, many message board users will not open your Word file, therefore limiting their ability to help you.

Similarly, if you are uploading a zipped archive, you should simply create a .ZIP file and not a self-extracting .EXE as many users will not run your EXE file.

    >>You make a change intentionally, click save, just select exiting

    Just select exiting is not possible here. You must choose Yes or No, and if you say No you are back at the change-in-process form.

    My users did not guess what to do when their change had been a mistake. I had to demonstrate the Oops button.

      Re: Auto save. Records are saved witn no need to press save record

      Sandy I took the line tbl.dchanged=date() off.
      No fields are called in the code now.
      Notice I said, do not click "save" (that is what is odd here) just exit, of course you are asked to save, say yes and you are on your way.
      No other extra clicks, is just the order of clicking.
      The oops button is good

        Re: Auto save. Records are saved witn no need to press save record

        How are you exiting the form? I can't get out without dealing with the Yes/No.

          Re: Auto save. Records are saved witn no need to press save record

          Using your code and eliminating the ddate line, will do as I explained on post 15.
          I did not mention case #3 where if you do not make changes in the form, you may elect any way out, select exit, go to next/prior record or click "querybyform". No question will come up.
          Again the use of save button is not needed with above cases.

            If you do not make changes in the table the script does not play.

            How do you "select exit?" If I go to the next or previous form or select query by form, the yes/no box shows up. Find is a bit different.

              Re: Auto save. Records are saved witn no need to press save record

              I guess you are in some mode. My form is system default. There are no filters entering the form.
              Check the events either on the form or the table. Something is holding you back.
              To test, Just create simple 3 field table. Create form based on it and apply your code without the ddate line.
              It should work as I mentioned in # 15

                Re: Auto save. Records are saved witn no need to press save record

                I cannot follow your description because I cannot find an "Exit" button or tool or menuitem.

                  Re: Auto save. Records are saved witn no need to press save record

                  Just use the x in the top frame or the close in your tool bar.

                    Re: Auto save. Records are saved witn no need to press save record

                    Another different message with the same result. Save change in progress? Yes/No/Cancel

                    I don't see Close in the form toolbar, but the three Close Xes I do see have the message above. In other words we cannot save an accidental edit without some sort of warning.
