can't add new record to sub-form (continuous)

    I have a form where we enter data. On this main form there is a sub-
    form. It is continuous form. I can add as many items as I need and it
    works great.

    I can then go through an EDIT button on my switchboard and it'll ask
    for example the Ticket Number. I type in the ticket number and it'll
    pull up the form with all the data that was entered during the data
    entry process. I can change things throughout; even in the sub-form,
    but I can't ADD a record in the sub-form.

    In data entry process you can TAB through the continuous sub-form and
    it'll create as many records as needed. When tabbing through in the
    EDIT phase it won't create any new records.

    How do I solve this? I need to be able to add another record. Thanks.

  3. .... and check the switchboard EDIT button's Click event
    procedure. Look at the OpenForm line and make sure the
    Datamode argument is acFormEdit (or not specified if the
    form's properties have bot AllowEdits and AllowAdditions set
    to Yes).

    i've checked AllowEdits and AllowAdditions and they are both set to
    yes. i also checked the EDIT button and don't see any code as Marshall
    mentioned. when run a query i can't add either. is this normal?

  5. Some queries are not updateable. It depends on how they are related and
    normalized. Sorry, I don't know the answer otherwise.

  6. Normal... for a non-updateable query, which would also cause the other

    There are many reasons why a query might not be updateable. A multitable query
    will only be updateable if the joins are from fields with a unique index (such
    as a primary key) to an indexed field; if there are too many tables even that
    might not help. No Totals query, nor any query containing a Totals query, is
    ever updateable; a UNIQUE VALUES query (starting with SELECT DISTINCT... in
    SQL view) isn't; a UNION query isn't; other reasons. Perhaps you could open
    the query in SQL view and post it here.

    Sorry I'm not more versed in Access, but I can ADD directly to table
    and ADD during data entry. Here is the SQL for the query used on
    subform during EDIT:


    IIf(dbo_PayrollDetail.Date Is
    Null,dbo_MercerDailyWorkTicketHdr.Date,dbo_PayrollDetail.Date) AS
    dbo_PayrollDetail.EmployeeNumber, dbo_PayrollDetail.EmployeeName,
    dbo_PayrollDetail.JobTitle, dbo_PayrollDetail.TravelTime,
    dbo_PayrollDetail.WorkTimeOnJob, dbo_PayrollDetail.CoTime,
    dbo_PayrollDetail.CostCenter, dbo_PayrollDetail.Hours,
    dbo_PayrollDetail.PayCategory, dbo_PayrollDetail.Misc_Text_Field_1,

    FROM dbo_PayrollDetail INNER JOIN dbo_MercerDailyWorkTicketHdr ON
    dbo_PayrollDetail.DailyWorkTicketNumber =

    thanks for any help.

  8. First off... why are you joining the payrolldetail table to the work ticket
    hdr table for this form? Typically - not universally, but typically - one
    would use a Form for the "one" side table and a Subform for the "many". I'm
    not clear which is which in this case.

    Secondly, obviously the Date1 field will not be updateable since it's
    calculated. Other than that, is DailyWorkTicketNumber the Primary Key of
    MercerDailyWorkTicketHdr? It should be in order for the query to be
    updateable. You may also need to include tat field from both tables in the
    query's SELECT clause.

    Subform is for the 'many'. On the main form it is for header
    information such as customer, location, etc. The sub-form are the
    employees who worked on that ticket (could be 1 employee or many
    employees on that 1 ticket).

    Problem is that not all employees have hours on a work ticket. So I
    have two data entries for payroll hours. One being the DailyWorkTicket
    form and another just a form that only captures payroll
    information ....not all or any ticket information. This payroll
    information from both places is in one table. I believe why they did
    things this way was that if the hours were on a DailyWorkTicket then
    the date came from this table, but if the hours came from the payroll
    form then the date came from this table. Kind of screwy. Hope this
    might clear some of that up.

  10. Wow, no; it makes it considerably more confusing!

    I'm not sure what a "work ticket" is; nor why it's still necessary to base the
    subform on a joined query. It SOUNDS like the subform could be based just on
    the PayrollDetail table, using the DailyOrkTicketNumber as the master/child
    link field. If not, try opening the query as a query datasheet. Is *IT*
    updateable? If it's not, is DailyWorkTicketNumber the primary key of
    MercerDailyWorkTicketHdr, or does it have a unique Index?
