DateTimeSeminar database Run time error Comment from John H @ 4/19/2017
Reference library showed missing: ms outlook 15.0 object library.  Removed check and now your db ReminderF opens without a hitch.

DateTimeSeminar database Run time error Comment from John H @ 4/18/2017
Just downloaded your database again on different computer.  Opening up ReminderF throws same error with debug line
W = W & "ReminderDateTime < #" & EndDate + 1 & "#"

Nothing has been changed.  Please advise Thanks

New Record Comment from Jim Ogier @ 1/19/2017
It would be nice to be able to have some records added to the table as a new record, i.e. click a button and the appointment is moved to the bottom of the list as a new record.

Can you give more of an example, I'm not sure what you want.

The order in which you have set the continuous form will display so if it's date order and you add a later date it will add to the bottom.

How can I default a Date time field to a PM time v Comment from Jim Ogier @ 1/12/2017
How can I default a Date/time field to a PM time value?
99 percent of the date time entries are a PM time and it would save much time to default to PM.

Reply from Alex Hedley:

Or =Date() + x amount of hours to make it into a PM value.

SubForm to ParentForm Comment from Richard Wilson @ 10/30/2016
I have a number of sub-forms on a form.  Is there any way for a change on a sub-form to trigger a "LastUpdated" field on the master form?  Frankly, I consider them all part of the form, but because of many-to-many relationships, I find it necessary to use a plethora of sub-forms.

Reply from Alex Hedley:

Take a look at the HasModule = False on the Form.

You could call a Function:
Me.Parent.<Name Of Function>
Forms("NameOfParent").<Name Of Function>
