I have a problem that is Vista related. My business partner has just purchased a laptop with Vista and one of the problem areas is SendKeys. I don't have Vista and he is away at the moment so we only have part time communication so I am trying a few solutions in the hope of getting the problem fixed.
He is getting a message along the line of.....Access needs to be reinstalled because SendKeys is not available.....he does not has his MSOffice with him so that can't be tried at the moment, although everything else is working OK.
There are a few macros involved but I have converted then into VB Module and that works OK for me on XP, although it does not carry out all instructions but it basically works. But it will be a few days before he can try what I have sent him.
I just notice that my conversion to VB module is not doing the SendKeys. No messages etc it is if the section covering SendKeys was not there. The example below was done with XP and macro. The SendKeys and the various other actions are all in the module. Edit...All is OK....my conversion of the macros to a module worked
So I would like to try another possible solution and that being to avoid SendKeys.
The situation involves a file note entry system. Each file note creates a different record and in each record there is a memo field with the file note that was made and of course time and date.
There is another table that holds one record for each person that has a file note made. Whether one file note is made or a 100 file notes there is only record.......The record is created when the first file note is made and the table will not accept duplicates on the persons ID number.
When a file note is made the system then opens the record in the other table and adds with SendKeys to the entry in the memo field on the "one record only table"
A form opened on the "one record" looks like this and as you can see the contents of the memo field from the "many records" have been combined into one. Can I do this without using SendKeys
