Ok here's my problem.

What i wanted to do was that if i save the value i enter on my txtbox (txtIDNo) and saves it to my database, the default value should automatically adds 1 or + 1 on it.

I set the field data type to Number and the default value to 10000. I dont want to use Autonumber because i wanted to set the default value.

If i save a new record, the default value 10000 should become 10001 for the new record.
But i dont really know why my code always get an error.

Here's the code:

Public Sub InitData()
On Error GoTo err:
    If rs.State = adStateOpen Then rs.Close
    
    rs.Open "Select * from tblEmp", cn, adOpenKeyset, adLockPessimistic
    If rs.EOF = False Then
        rs.MoveLast
        Me.txtIDNo.Text = rs.Fields("EM_ID").Value + 1
    Else
        Me.txtIDNo.Text = 10000
    End If
    Exit Sub
err:
    MsgBox err.Description, vbCritical, "Error"
    Set rs = Nothing
End Sub

Please, i really dont know what the problem is. Thanks

Try the following -

Public Sub InitData()
On Error GoTo err:
    If rs.State = adStateOpen Then rs.Close
 
    rs.Open "Select * from tblEmp", cn, adOpenStatic, adLockPessimistic 'Keyset changed to static
    If rs.BOF = True Or rs.EOF = True Then
       'No records
       txtIDNo.Text = "10000"
       
       rs.Close
       Exit Sub
          Else
       rs.MoveLast
       Dim xIdNo As Integer
       
       xIdNo = rs!EM_ID
       xIdNo = xIdNo + 1
       txtIDNo.Text = xIdNo

       rs.Close
     End If
   
    Exit Sub
err:
    MsgBox err.Description, vbCritical, "Error"
rs.Close    
Set rs = Nothing
End Sub

Still got an error.

Error message is:

Arguments are of the wrong type, are out of range or are in conflict with one another.

I dont know if it is on the Database (datatype) or my code.

Any way, I'll just post the entire code for my Add Employee Form

Can u look at it, Thanks.

I have tested your code. The problem lies with your database connection

Call con

. Once I have added a direct connection, all worked well, the empId updated its numbers, sooooo, check your call to the database connection "cn" on line 255

Dim dbX As ADODB.Connection
Set dbX = New ADODB.Connection
dbX.CursorLocation = adUseClient
dbX.Open "PROVIDER=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0; Data Source=" & App.Path & "\Employee.mdb"

    Dim rsX As ADODB.Recordset
    Set rsX = New ADODB.Recordset
    'If rsX.State = adStateOpen Then rsX.Close
 
    rsX.Open "Select * from EmpRecord", dbX, adOpenStatic, adLockOptimistic
    If rsX.BOF = True Or rsX.EOF = True Then
 
       'No records
       txtIDNo.Text = "10000"
 
       rsX.Close
       Exit Sub
          Else
       rsX.MoveLast
 
Dim xIdNo As Integer
 
       xIdNo = rsX!IdNo
       xIdNo = xIdNo + 1
       txtIDNo.Text = xIdNo
 
       rsX.Close
     End If
End Sub

I have also noticed that you use a lot of duplication code. Try the following to clear textboxes etc -

PrivateSub ClearTextBoxes(frm As Form)

Dim Control As Control

 For Each Control In frm.Controls
        If TypeOf Control Is TextBox Then
            Control.Text = vbNullstring 'We do not use ""
        End If
       
    Next Control
End Sub

n'Now call the function where ever
Call ClearTextBoxes Me

Edited 6 Years Ago by AndreRet: n/a

Wow, i didnt know about a code like this haha, im such a beginner.

Regarding this part sir

#
If TypeOf Control Is TextBox Then
#
Control.Text = vbNullstring 'We do not use ""
#
End If

the exception is my txtIDNo (for employee ID) A null value cannot be allowed

of course with the code you also helped me with..

Public Sub InitData()

Dim dbX As ADODB.Connection
Set dbX = New ADODB.Connection
dbX.CursorLocation = adUseClient
dbX.Open "PROVIDER=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0; Data Source=" & App.Path & "\Database.mdb"

    Dim rsX As ADODB.Recordset
    Set rsX = New ADODB.Recordset
    'If rsX.State = adStateOpen Then rsX.Close
 
    rsX.Open "Select * from EmpRecord", dbX, adOpenStatic, adLockOptimistic
    If rsX.BOF = True Or rsX.EOF = True Then
 
       'No records
       txtIDNo.Text = "10000"
 
       rsX.Close
       Exit Sub
          Else
       rsX.MoveLast
 
Dim xIdNo As Integer
 
       xEmpID = rsX!EmpID
       xEmpID = xEmpID + 1
       txtIDNo.Text = xEmpID
 
       rsX.Close
     End If
End Sub

How can i use the code without clearing the txtIDNo.?

Add the following -

PrivateSub ClearTextBoxes(frm As Form)
 
Dim Control As Control
 
 For Each Control In frm.Controls
        If TypeOf Control Is TextBox And Not TextBox.Name = "txtIdNo" Then
            Control.Text = vbNullstring 'We do not use ""
        End If
 
    Next Control
End Sub

This will clear all textboxes except the specified one.

If all of this worked for you, do not forget to mark the thread as solved please.

Happy coding.
