Need Practical Easy Example Of Passing Data Between Forms

Need Practical Easy Example Of Passing Data Between Forms

Need Practical Easy Example Of Passing Data Between Forms

I am new to Access programming and I am sure this is not very difficult, but I am having trouble understanding how to implement it.  I need help with the coding needed on the Openform for form_Family and needed coding for form_Visit.  

I am up against a deadline and any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have the following scenario:

  FamilyID      Integer
  MemberNumber  Integer
  FirstName     Text
  LastName      Text
  BirthDate     Date
  FamilyID      Integer
  MemberNumber  Integer
  VisitDate     Date
  Address       Text
  Telephone     Text
  TextBox       FamilyID
  TextBox       MemberNumber
  TextBox       FirstName
  TextBox       LastName
  TextBox       Birthdate
  CommandButton "Visit Info"
  TextBox       FamilyID
  TextBox       MemberNumber
  TextBox       FirstName
  TextBox       LastName
  TextBox       BirthDate
  TextBox       VisitDate
  TextBox       Address
  TextBox       Telephone

When I click the CommandButton on form_Family, I want to pass the FamilyID and MemberNumber to form_Visit.  Then I want FirstName, LastName and BirthDate to be automatically populated with data from the tbl_Family.  I will enter VisitDate, Address and Telephone to complete the data entry.

On the OnClick event of the command button put the following:

DoCmd.OpenForm "form_Visit", acNormal, , , acFormAdd

Now in the OnOpen event of form_Visit, put the following:

With Forms!form_Family
   Me.FamilyID = !FamilyID
   Me.MemberNumber = !MemberNumber
   Me.FirstName = !FirstName
   Me.LastName = !LastName
   Me.Birthdate = !Birthdate
End With


Do not close form_family while you are working with form_Visit, or Access will give you an error.
