Show only current and future information in an update form??

Show only current and future information in an update form??

Show only current and future information in an update form??

OK this one has me stumped.  I am sure that it is simple, but I can't see it.  I have a table with data similar to:

ID   BranchCode   BranchAddress          AddressEffDate
---  ----------   -------------          --------------
1     AL001       123 Main Street        9/1/00
2     AL001       234 Elm Street         10/1/00
3     AL001       345 Oak Street         12/15/00
4     AL002       456 Fletcher           1/1/00
5     AL003       567 Fowler             2/1/00

I need the update form for this data to show the current data AND any future data.  If I don't show the future data, the woman doing data entry will just keep entering it over and over.  The data must be updatable, which is what is tripping me up.

I am thinking, (me the queen of database design!), that this should be broken up into two tables, but I REALLY don't have time to do this.  (I know, I know, it's better to do it right, but I am swamped.)

Anyone have an answer?????


RE: Show only current and future information in an update form??

SELECT tblBranchAddr.BranchCode, tblBranchAddr.AddressEffDate
FROM tblBranchAddr
GROUP BY tblBranchAddr.BranchCode, tblBranchAddr.AddressEffDate
HAVING (((tblBranchAddr.AddressEffDate)>=Now()));

SELECT DISTINCTROW tblBranchAddr.BranchCode, tblBranchAddr.AddressEffDate
FROM tblBranchAddr
WHERE (((tblBranchAddr.AddressEffDate)<=Now()));

SELECT qryUniqueBr.BranchCode, Max(qryUniqueBr.AddressEffDate) AS MaxOfAddressEffDate
FROM qryUniqueBr
GROUP BY qryUniqueBr.BranchCode;

Select * from qryMaxBrDate
Union Select * from qryCurrDate;

SELECT tblBranchAddr.*
FROM tblBranchAddr INNER JOIN qryAllBrDates ON (tblBranchAddr.AddressEffDate = qryAllBrDates.AddressEffDate) AND (tblBranchAddr.BranchCode = qryAllBrDates.BranchCode);


Hopefully this crude exercise will inspire your queenly instincts.  It works for the test data supplied, and I added one additional (future) record just to "prove" that ALL future address changes are reflected.

There is never time to do it right but there is always time to do it over

RE: Show only current and future information in an update form??

well, michael's will probably work better, but if they are one of a kind, just index the fields and don't allow updates if duplicates are being made (ie use a message box to tell data entry that record is already there)
I have a favor to ask.  I posted a question on forms, stupidly in the general discussion, but desperately need some help.  I read your bio and saw the intelligence.  Would you mind looking up my question to see if you can help?  It is titled lookup form.  If you can I will be eternally greatful...
