Northwind Form Customer Phonelist - HELP


G

Guest

Hi from a newbie ! I have a single table database containing Stockparts and
there budgets as am not proficient with Access I had a look at the Sample
Northwind database on the Customer Phonelist Form there are alpha buttons
down the bottom that allow you to jump to all companys staring with M etc I
liked this feature so I went to the form copied the option group down the
bottom and pasted it on to my own form I then Imported the macro Customer
phone list from the Northwind database which contains the code to select M
etc. I only slightly modified this by changing [Companyname] Like "[AÀÃÂÃÄ]*"
in the where box to [Stockcode] Like "[AÀÃÂÃÄ]*" This worked perfectly much
to my suprise however for some reason the little message that says there are
no records for that letter does not come up on my form but does in Northwind
as I didn't change that part of the macro I'm a little confused on why not.
I know I should've started from scratch however I havn't used macro's before
so it's alll a bit beyond me any suggestions would be appreciated

You may have inadvertently deleted the MsgBox macro or some how
changed it.

Check the Phone Book macro in design view.
Down towards the bottom of the list you should find a MsgBox listed in
the Action column. If not, recopy the Northwind macro.
If the macro MsgBox is shown, then check the condition for it.
It should read
[RecordsetClone].[RecordCount]=0

If that doesn't fix it, change the condition for just the MsgBox macro
to:
[CompanyName] Is Null

Hope this has helped.

Thanks for the imput fredg while your sugestion didn't solve my problem
(proabably because I didn't apply it correctly) however it did make me
realise what the problem was (the msg box was set to appear when
currentrecord=0 however the record counter was showing 1 of 1 even when Null
records where brought up) I have since fixed it and learnt a bit in the
process
Thanks for your time
