    Unanswered: Code help


    I would like help in writing code that indicates that the result generated is greater than what is needed.

    For example I have a field where I enter the amount of leave John Paul takes. At the end of the month I calculate the total amount of leave John Paul takes.

    What I want to do is generate a message if John Paul total amount of leave exceeds say 17 days!

    How do I write code for that?

    Its an microsoft access database!

    Thanks for the help!

    Do you have a field or table that has all the maximum days each person has? If so, why not just do check against that?

    Not enough info. What is this "result generated", how does that happen? We talking form, report, query? What constitutes a "generated message"? Is this an automated process?

    Actually, just Read This.
    oh yeah... documentation... I have heard of that.

    Since you've given such little information you can try this:

    If Nz(DLookup("[AmountOfLeaveDaysInTable]", "TableName", "[EmployeeName]='" & _
          Me.NameOfEmployeeOnForm & "'"), 0) > 17 Then
       MsgBox "H E Y ... " & Me.NameOfEmployeeOnForm & " Has Taken To Many " & _
              "Leave Days! - Fire Him/Her", vbExclaimation, "To Many Leave Days"
    End If
