Thanks again, i cannot express how much u've helped me

my ICT teacher had no clue, and she was on about creating a new user form identical to that one, so that when the user clicked confirm they would not know that they were changing forms, didn't want to do it that way, and she had no clue how to do it.

How long winded did she want to do it??? Would of taken a while and is kinda silly anyway

Thanks again mate

if you wanted to be really special you should build in some validations to where if any of those text boxes are empty that it changes the heading on that form to something like "please make sure all data is entered and correct"

it usually involves an if then loop


something like

if textbox1 = "" then label1 = "please enter your surname"
end if

and so on for each box

hey

got in the validations, to say that if any text box is empty, change label to show 'please enter in your surname' but, this does not stop it entering all the blank information into my customer ID sheet. how do i stop it so you can't go any further until that information has been entered in???

Thanks

Ok...sorry but i didn't have time to read all the new replies (i just read the first page)...

what you want to do is this:

Private Sub FormNewCustomerOrOldCustomer_Load() 'if this doesn't work then try to take off private sub
cmd2ndConfirmbtn.Visible = False
End Sub 'this makes it so that when the form loads the button is not visible

'then add this code to the first confirm button

Private Sub Form1stConfirmButton_Click()
cmd2ndConfirmbtn.Visible = True
End Sub 'this makes the second confirm visible but only if you clicked the first confirm button

p.s. i don't know the name of the buttons or forms so i just made them up describing what they are...:tazz:

To answer the validation thing:

Private Sub confirmbtn_Click()
If txtSurname.Text = "" Then 
msgbox "You didn't enter your last name you silly goose!", vbCritical, "ERROR"
Cancel = True
End If 'this displays a message box with what the user did wrong and the "Cancel = True" is to make the OK			  
End Sub 'on the messagebox to make you go back and reenter the surname and not forward :D

that should do it..

OR you could do this (disabling the button if the text boxes are empty)

Private Sub confirmbtn_Click()
If txtSurname.Text = "" Then 
confirmbtn.Enabled = False
Else
confirmbtn.Enabled = True
End If 
End Sub

p.s. tell me if there are errors so i can fix them :tazz:

Something that always improves programs are GRAPHICS. If you have those even the most simple program looks awesome :tazz:

Other from that, you could put different colors (like dont put the ugly normal grey one :))

Im sure you'll do an awesome job!
