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.

  • Creating a new record in a child table

    Hi all
    When i create a new record in the main table, i need to check to see if there is a record in the child table that matches the one in the main db and if not, create one in the child table.
    Example:
    The two tables are linked by an unique number which consist of clock number, process, type
    (i.e. 3650SMAWManual) . In the main table this number may exist many times but in the child table i want is to exist only once. When a new form is completed, i want to check to see if the number exist in the child table and if not i want alphav5 to create the record and populate it automatically. Is there of a way to perform this. I have read the using alpha and the tutorials but have not found where this address. Could someone tell me where to find this information
    Thanks

    Lionel,

    When you enter a new record in the parent table as soon as you go to the child table the field that you have linked on will be filled with the value you have set for the link.

    To check what values there are in the link field look at the child table on a default form.

      Hi Keith
      A welder may have 5 qualification for the FCAW process, so he would have five records in the main table but i want only the first record in the child table. Everything is link by a unique number. hope this makes sense.

        RE: Creating a new record in a child table

        Hi Guys
        I have posted a similar complain on this issue just last month. The refrential integrity of A5V5 set does not work properly. When a new record is created in set the linking key field value is not created on the child table. Lionel did make the same observation I did. The A5 team should please take a note of this problem & fix it as soon as possible.

          Lionel,

          If your welders are going to have more than one qualification then there should be a child table just for that. The link would be the IDcode for that person.

          There is no problem with data in linking fields.
