Export An Access Database Structure (i.e. No Data)?

If I want to duplicate just a table, I can easily select "structure only" under paste options. Is there an easy way to do the same thing for an entire database (tables, queries, etc.) all at once?

In short, someone has a database. They're willing to share the database itself, but not necessarily its contents. The database has a user interface, so the people who use the database don't necessarily know much about Access. Therefore, I can ask them to follow a few basic, built-in Access menu options, but can't ask them to do something manually, such as copying the entire file and then manually emptying the tables. This seems like something that should be easy, but I can't find it. Any help?

Thanks,

Rhythm

Can Export Table Structure But Not Data - Version: 2000 (9.0)

I am using .NET 2.0 to connect to Access which has a dblink to Oracle so that I can export a table to dbase III file format. Here is the code...

Code:
Dim oApp As Access.Application
oApp = DirectCast(CreateObject("Access.Application"), Access.Application)

oApp.OpenCurrentDatabase("C:Export.mdb")

oApp.DoCmd.TransferDatabase(Access.AcDataTransferType.acExport, "dBase III", "c: emp", Access.AcObjectType.acTable, "ENVDB_TBLSOP", "MATRIX", True)

oApp.CloseCurrentDatabase()
oApp = Nothing


When I set the last parameter of the TransferDatabase method to True (only structure) everything works fine. However, when I set it to False (structure and data) it just hangs forever - no errors but nothing happens.

Anyone know why this is happening? There are only 300 records in the table and only one field per record.

Save Database Structure Not Data - Version: 2003 (11.0)

Hi, A friend wants to email me a database that is huge because of a large amount of data that is stored in it. I only need to look at the structure not the data. Is there an easy way to save just the structure of the whole database. I can import all the objects (structure only) into a blank database, but it's a bit fiddly and time consuming. Is there an easier way? Any suggestions would be hugely appreciated. Thanks.

Copy A Linked Table In A Database And Paste Structure And Data L - Version: 2003 (11.0)

Hi,

I have a database that has linked tables. If you manually copy the table and paste it in the same database, there is an option to copy the structure and data(local table). What I want to do is copy these linked tables and make them local tables. Then I want to delete the linked tables. Is there a way to code this in a module to automate the process for all of the linked tables?

Thanks,

Export Structure?

I'm trying to find a way to export the structure of a table in my Access database.

I created a new table and I want to put it in the database on my website. However, my site is constantly being used so I have no way of downloading the database, modifying it, and then uploading it again without losing some data.

I do have a database editor on my website that allows me to run queries. So If I can get a query with all of the CREATE TABLE information (all the fields, whether they are Allow Zero Length, etc.) then I can just use that.

I can't seem to find a way in Access 2000 to export the structure of the table.

Export Table From Backend Data File To New Database

Hi

I want to simply export all the tables from my backend data file to the new database file I have created. When I try to run following code from my frontend, it sends the tables as linked table to the new database. I want this to actually export all the tables from backend file instead of frontend. Here's my code

Dim RealDB As DAO.Database
Dim MobileDB As DAO.Database
Dim strRealDataPath As String
Dim strMobileDBPath As String
Dim TDF As DAO.TableDef
Dim i, X

strRealDataPath = DLookup("Database", "MSysObjects", "Name Like 'TblPatients'")

Set RealDB = OpenDatabase(strRealDataPath)



'Start Exporting tables

For Each TDF In RealDB.TableDefs

If TDF.Name Like "MSys*" Then
Else


DoCmd.TransferDatabase transfertype:=acExport, databasetype:="Microsoft Access", _
databasename:=strMobileDBPath, objecttype:=acTable, Source:=RealDB.TableDefs(TDF.Name), _
destination:=TDF.Name

X = SysCmd(4, "Exporting Table " & TDF.Name)
Me.Repaint
End If
Next

X = SysCmd(acSysCmdClearStatus)


Any suggestions?

Export, Then Append To Another Access Database - Version: 97 (8.0)

I have a database to track ER Medical Necessity Denial. Once the record is more then 20 business days old and no records have been located, the visit must be written off. I have another database that tracks all write-off requests. Rather then have the users print a report from the ER database and then manually reenter the data into the Writeoff Database, I want to export the records and have the append to the appropriate table in the destination database.

TransferDatabase won't work as it wants to delete the destination table.

Thanks.

Access Truncating Data In Export

Hello...
I am trying to export an Access table to a csv file.
I have several fields in the table that are type double and go to 3 decimal places. When I export the data, it truncates it to 2 decimal places.
I changed the table design from "Auto" decimal places to 3. and that didn't help.
When I am in the Table Export wizard, it shows all 3 decimal places, but when I look at the text file, it's only 2.
Anybody ever have this problem?
Thanks in advance!

Export Access Data Into Excel Column

Hello,

I have a table in Access and would like to export it using code into specific fielfs of a template in Excel.

My table has 3 fields:

SSN
FIRSTNAME
LNAME

I would like to export the recorsed to a template named MyTemplate. This template has a workbook named MyWorkbook.

The only problem is that I need to copy the active recorset (meaning the one which I will select) in a column and not into a row.

Example: I will select a record using a combo and then data will be copied from my Table into the cells B1 (ssn), B2 (FIRSTNAME), B3 (LASTNAME)

Any idea or help? Thanks

Can I Export A Data Access Page To Static HTML?

Good morning! I'm using Access to redesign our company's electronic phonebook. Our intranet uses SharePoint technology and our IT people have cranked our security settings up pretty high, so I can't use data access pages or ASP. Therefore, I'm going to use static HTML, producing a single page which the CEO's secretary will upload once a month, allowing our 800+ employees to view the entire phonebook at once. CTRL-F is their friend.

I've managed to design a data access page that looks very much like we want it to, but I don't know how to export it to static HTML. Can such a thing be done, or am I just being wacky? If so, is there a way to automate it so the secretary can just push a button to generate the page?

Thanks,

Export - Import Data With Access - Version: 2003 (11.0)

Hi:
Thank you for considering my request. I am developing a db that is 'growing' in terms of additional tables and additional columns in some of the existing tables. To test V 1.0, I enter and manipulate data. Subsequently, I clear all the data in V1.0, do additional development on the db, and arrive at V 2.0. I would like to use the data in V1.0 to populate V2.0. What is the procedure to save the data in V1.0 and then import it into V2.0? I guess the issue is how do I import data from a previous version into a new version in which some of the destination tables have additional data columns (not keys).


Thanks

Export Of Access Data To AwareIM - Version: 2003 (11.0)

I am evaluating migrating some of my Access applications to a tool called AwareIM . While AwareIM can be used with data from a number of different databases, one of the capabilities of AwareIM is to import data from CSV files.

AwareIM requires the first row of the CSV file contain field names in the format aaa.yyy where aaa is an AwareIM table name & yyy is a field name. I will be using different field names in the AwareIM system than in the old Access application.

I have been able to create queries and macros to export the the CSV files from Access but am not sure how to create the aaa.yyy first row in the CSV file. I will be running this process of creating CSV files once a day while the Access application and AwareIM application run concurrently until the conversion is complete so I want the process to be 100% automated. The first row of each CSV file will be the same every time.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Tom

I have a Table containing these fields: id-no, cold, cold ever, cold date,flu,flu ever and flu date. (The properties of id-no, cold,cold ever,flu,flu ever are set as Numbers.)
What i want to do is to select and export the data into another database that has satified the criteria using Access Module.Is it possible?I've tried using the following code but it doesnt seem to work accordin to what i want.

Public Sub MakeTable_ced()
DoCmd.RunSQL ("SELECT [Table1].[id-no], [Table1].[cold], [Table1].[cold ever], [Table1].[cold date], [Table1].[flu], [Table1].[flu ever], [Table1].[flu date]" & _
"INTO [newtable] IN 'C:MEew.mdb'" & _
"FROM [Table1]" & _
"WHERE(([Table1].[cold])>0 AND ([Table1].[cold ever])=1 AND ([Table1].[cold date])='/' Or ([Table1].[cold])>0 AND ([Table1].[cold ever])=0 AND ([Table1].[cold date])='/' Or([Table1].[flu])>0 AND ([Table1].[flu ever])=1 AND([Table1].[flu date])='/' Or([Table1].[flu])>0 AND ([Table1].[flu ever])=0 AND([Table1].[flu date])='/')" &
"ORDER BY [Table1].[id-no];")
End Sub

The following is the data in the 'Table1':
id-no cold cold ever cold date flu flu ever flu date

1009 2 0 / 1 1 /

When i run the code, the filtered data appear in 'newtable' in new database is as follow:
id-no cold cold ever cold datefluflu ever flu date
100411/1113/07/2004
100811 14/07/200410/
100920/11/

The data of id no 1004 has satisfied the criteria are displayed (i.e data of cold, cold ever and cold data fields ) however the data that does not satisfied the criteria are displayed as well (ie data of flu,flu ever and flu date).Similarly,this happens to id no 1008. So is there a possible way to display only the data tt satisfy the criteria ?Hope someone can help me.Thanks in advance:D

Help With Database Structure

I am designing an application that tracks information on Choir membership and sheet music that we have on file. I am starting with a database of church members. There are four different choirs and choirs share some members. Some members of some of the choirs are also not members of our church so I will have to place non members in the member table. I am new to database design and would like the collective wisdom of this list to tell me of any problems I may encounter before I start doing any detail work.

What is the best way to deal with someone who is a member of more than one choir and may belong to a different section in this other choir (Tenor in one and Bass in another). An individual may also hold different offices in various choirs.

The table structure I have is as follows

CHURCH MEMBERSHIP DB:
MemberId Autonumber (pk)
FirstName, Text
MiddleName, Text
LastName, Text
DateJoined, Date
Phone, Text
Address, Text
City , Text
Zip, Text
EmailAddress
BirthDate, Date
Member, Boolean

CHOIR MEMBERSHIP DB (How do I efficiently track someone in > 1 choirs)
MemberId, FK
ChoirId, FK
FolderNo
RobeNo
Section
ChoirOfficeId, Fk

CHOIRS DB (This lists the various choirs in the Church)
ChoirId, pk
ChoirName, Text
DirectorId, FK (Pointing to Member DB, Person may not be member of any Choir)

MUSIC DB
CatalogId, PK
Title
Composer
Arranger
Type (Single Copy/octavo or book/collection)
PublisherId, FK
PublisherNumber
VoicingId, FK (From table with possible voicing)
NumCopies
UsageId, FK (Where in the service is it appropriate
Location, Text (Where in the filing system, or off site)
ClassificationId, FK (List of classification/genre in table so can update)

PUBLISHER DB
PublisherId, PK
PublisherName
PublisherAddress
PublisherPhone
PublisherWeb
PublisherContact

MUSIC CLASSIFICATION DB
ClassificationId, PK
Classification, Text (Christmas, Easter, general anthem etc)

To be able to track performances and plan services and performances I have the following table.

PERFORMANCE DB (This is to keep track of and plan the regular service)
PerformanceId, PK
Pdate, date (Date of Past/Planned performance. Possibly more than one per day)
ServiceTypeId, FK (From table of types of performances morning service, evening, etc)
Location
Speaker
Pianist
Organist
Introit
Invocation
Anthem
Meditation
Benediction
(etc)

I would also like to be able to prepare mailing labels for the various choirs as well as the general membership from this DB. My primary focus will be on the music. I would like to have an efficient music DB that I may find out what music I do have and when I last performed them, what options for performance (usage and classification)

Would be grateful for your comments, Thanks!!

Database Structure Enquiry

I'm doing some changes to a database in work, but the person who created it doesnt work there anymore and so nobody knows anything about it. The database has been split into a front and back end, which is fine, but there appears to be 3 seperate databases linked to the main one, each with a .mde file for security. Depending on which department you're in, you access your database. Any information being added is updated in the main front end database. Does anybody know how that will be linked? I'm just probably going to have problems when encorporating my changes.
