Filtering Unbound Subform from Main form with combo boxes HELP


H

heidii

Hello All:

Below I have pasted the filter code that I have been using on a lot of
my continious forms. It works great, and thank you to who ever
created this code. I found it here on this site.

I would now like to use the same code to filter a subform that is in
datasheet view. My subform is not related to the main form. There is
no records source on the main form. It is just the frame holding my
subform so that I can have combo boxes on the form to use on the
subform. I can not use the combo boxes on the subform as I usually do
as I want this subform to remain in datasheet view so the users can
hide and unhide columns as they wish.

My question is this: How can I use the code I have below to reference
my fields on the subform so they will filter correctly.

I have been trying to implement forms![FRM-RANCH_INFO_SEARCH].[QRY-
RANCH_INFO_RANCH_VIEW1].FORM.[LOT#] but this does not seem to work.
Can anyone help me implement this with the code I have.

Thanks much

Heidi

I do this a little differently:

Private Sub cmdsearch_Click()
Dim strFilter As String

If Not IsNUll(Me.CBOLOTNUMBER) Then
strFilter = "[LOT#]=" & """" & Me.CBOLOTNUMBER & """"
End If

If Not IsNull(Me.CBORANCH) Then
strFilter = AddAnd(strFilter)
strFliter = strFilter & "[RANCH]=" & """" & Me.CBORANCH & """"
End If

If Not IsNull(M.CBOWSDACERTNUMBER) Then
strFilter = AddAnd(strFilter)
strFilter = strFilter & "[WSDACERT#]=" & """" & Me.CBOWSDACERTNUMBER &
""""
End If

If Not IsNull(Me.cboBLOCKTYPE) Then
strFilter = AddAnd(strFilter)
strFliter = strFilter & "[BLOCKTYPE]=" & """" & Me.cboBLOCKTYPE & """"
End If

If Not IsNull(Me.cbostatus) Then
strFilter = AddAnd(strFilter)
strFliter = strFilter & "[STATUS]=" & """" & Me.cbostatus & """"
End If

If Not IsNull( Me.cboCOMMODITY ) Then
strFilter = AddAnd(strFilter)
strFliter = strFilter & "[COMMODITY]=" & """" & Me.cboCOMMODITY & """"
End If

If Not IsNull( Me.CBOWSDASITENUMBER ) Then
strFilter = AddAnd(strFilter)
strFliter = strFilter & "[WSDA SITE NUMBER]=" & """" &
e.CBOWSDASITENUMBER & """"
End If


If Not IsNull( Me.cboMASTERVARIETY) Then
strFilter = AddAnd(strFilter)
strFliter = strFilter & "[MASTER VARIETY]=" & """" &
Me.cboMASTERVARIETY
& """"
End If

If Not IsNull( Me.cboVARIETY) Then
strFilter = AddAnd(strFilter)
strFliter = strFilter & "[VARIETY]=" & """" & Me.cboVARIETY & """"
End If

If Not IsNull( Me.cboYEARPLANTED) Then
strFilter = AddAnd(strFilter)
strFliter = strFilter & "[PLANTED]=" & """" & Me.cboYEARPLANTED & """"
End If

If Not IsNull( Me.cboYEARGRAFTED) Then
strFilter = AddAnd(strFilter)
strFliter = strFilter & "[GRAFTED]=" & """" & Me.cboYEARGRAFTED & """"
End If


Me.SubformControlName.Form.Filter = strFilter
Me.SubformControlName.Form.FilterOn = True
End Sub

I don't know the name of your subform control, so you will need to replace
SubFormControlName with the name of your control. It is not the name of the
form being used as the subform, but the name of the subform control on the
main form.

I did this pretty quickly, so it is possible there will be syntax errors,
but I'm sure you can clean them up. Notice this takes a lot less code and
will be faster. Below is the code for the AddAnd function. What is does is
add the AND to your filter string when it is needed.

'---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
' Procedure : AddAnd
' DateTime : 2/9/2008 17:26
' Author : Dave Hargis
' Purpose : Adds the word AND to a filtering string when neede
'---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
'
Private Function AddAnd(strFilterString) As String
On Error GoTo AddAnd_Error

If Len(strFilterString) > 0 Then
AddAnd = strFilterString & " AND "
Else
AddAnd = strFilterString
End If


AddAnd_Exit:

Exit Function
On Error GoTo 0

AddAnd_Error:

MsgBox "Error " & Err.Number & " (" & Err.Description & _
") in procedure AddAnd of VBA Document Form_frmDashBoard"
GoTo AddAnd_Exit

End Function
