Access Function

By Staff

>>Script Language and Platform: Access, VBA
Want to use this function in PHP/MySQL but new to PHP/MySQL. It works by taking the select member code description and the last assigned number and format as CON-00001 once the focus in lost after selecting the member description from dropdown list on the form.

	Option Compare Database

Function newMemCode(pMemID) As String

 Dim dbs As Database

 Dim rst As DAO.Recordset

 Dim L_newMemCode As String

 On Error GoTo Err_Execute

 Set dbs = CurrentDb()

 Set rst = dbs.OpenRecordset("Select last_assigned_nbr From Codes Where code_descr = '" & pMemID & "'")

 If rst.EOF = True Then
    dbs.Execute "Insert Into Codes(code_descr, last_assigned_nbr) Values('" & pMemID & "', 1)", dbFailOnError

    L_newMemCode = pMemID & "-" & Format(1, "00000")


    L_newMemCode = pMemID & "-" & Format(rst("last_assigned_nbr") + 1, "00000")

    dbs.Execute "Update Codes Set last_assigned_nbr = " & rst("last_assigned_nbr") + 1 & " Where code_descr = '" & pMemID & "'", dbFailOnError

End If


 Set rst = Nothing

 Set dbs = Nothing

 newMemCode = L_newMemCode

 Exit Function


    newMemCode = ""

    MsgBox "An error occurred while trying to determine the next memberCode to assign."

End Function
