Outlook 2003 Saving into a textbox when form closes


D

Daniel

Ok, when the Post closes it saves everything in the Post to an Access database and its suppose to grab the autonumber from the access database and place it in a textbox on the Post. But when I open the Post the textbox with the ID number is empty, How do I save the Number when the Post closes?



Function OpenAccessDB(strDBPath)
Const adStateOpen = 1
Dim objADOConn
Dim strConn, UID, PWD
UID = ""
PWD = ""
On Error Resume Next
strConn = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0; " & _
"Data Source=" & strDBPath & "; " & _
"User ID=" & UID & "; " & _
"Password=" & PWD & "; "
Set objADOConn = CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
objADOConn.Open strConn
If (Err = 0) And (objADOConn.State = adStateOpen) Then
Set OpenAccessDB = objADOConn
Else
Set OpenAccessDB = Nothing
End If
Set objADOConn = Nothing
End Function

Function GetNewNumber()
Const adLockOptimistic = 3
Const adOpenDynamic = 2
Dim adoConn 'As ADODB.Connection

strSQL = "SELECT * FROM [HelpDesk];" 'was "SELECT [ID] FROM HelpDesk;"
Set rstHelpDesk = CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
rstHelpDesk.Open strSQL, adoConn , adOpenDynamic, adLockOptimistic

If Item.UserProperties("ID") = "" Then
rstHelpDesk.AddNew
rstHelpDesk.Fields("ComputerName") = Item.UserProperties("Computer Name")
rstHelpDesk.Fields("Date") = Item.UserProperties("Date")

rstHelpDesk.Update
Item.UserProperties("ID")= rstHelpDesk.Fields("ID") <-- doesn't save
Msgbox Item.UserProperties("ID") <--the messagebox does give me a number
rstHelpDesk.Close
adoConn.Close
Set adoConn = Nothing
Set rstHelpDesk = Nothing
End Function

Function Item_Close()
Dim Save
Save=msgbox("Do you want to Save this Form to the Database or Cancel?",1,"Save?")

If Save = VbOk Then
GetNewNumber()
End If

End Function.

If the item is closing because no previous changes were made to it, the item
isn't going to be saved. You may need to change the logic and require users
to save the item in order to get a new number, not just close it.
