Loop through a datasheet and change cell value based on two other cells

Loop through a datasheet and change cell value based on two other cells

Loop through a datasheet and change cell value based on two other cells

(OP)
I have a form that is shown as a datasheet view when it's loaded. During the loading of the form, I would like for it to do a "calculation" that if the "Refill Date" is greater than the "PA Date", it changes the "PA Required" to TRUE. But I need it to check all the rows as the form loads. I should add that I don't want to save the change to PA Required in the table that stores the data, just want it to show me when the form loads. How can I do this with VBA code?



Thank you in advance

RE: Loop through a datasheet and change cell value based on two other cells

How about simple:

Select "Refill Date",
IIF("Refill Date" > "PA Date", TRUE, FALSE) As "PA Required",

"PA Date"
From MyTable

Hi Andy,
This is MS Access so they syntax would be:

CODE --> SQL

Select [Refill Date],
IIF({Refill Date} > [PA Date], TRUE, FALSE) As [PA Required],
[PA Date]
From MyTable 

At least you didn't use CASE WHEN in place of IIf.

Shouldn't
{Refill Date} 
be
[Refill Date] 
?

RE: Loop through a datasheet and change cell value based on two other cells

Yes the {} should be [].
