I keep getting the error message "Table TempMsysAccessObjects already exists" when I try to compact/repair my database. The only help I've found in the MS knowledge base just says to delete the table. I keep deleting it, but it keeps coming back. I've tried the decompile cmd line option, no change. Do I need to just rebuild this db, or what?
I store this database on a flash drive and when I tried to compact and repair it, it said there wasn't enough room, so I got rid of some files on the drive and tried again, and now I just keep getting the message: Table 'TempMSysAccessObjects' already exists. But I don't find that table anywhere!!!
I need urgent help, I am required at my job to come up with a command that will check to see if a table exists, and if so, delete the table. The whole process goes like this:
There's a form, and a listbox. 2 buttons...1 is import a file and 2nd is generate report. In the listbox theres 3 excel files. You select one excel file then click on Import, followed by clicking on Generate Report button.
The whole technical process is this: 1. A csv file is imported into a temp table 2. A temp table is created and named "_ImportedSKUS". 3. An append query is exectued to add the data from the "_ImportedSKUS" temp table to the final table, "Imported SKUs". 4. Then the temp table, "_ImportedSKUs" is closed and deleted.
I have a delete command at the end of the sub, which goes like this:
DoCmd.DeleteObject acTable, "_ImportedSKUS".
But I'm also need to generate an If statement before the loop that will check to see if the "_ImportedSKUs" table exists, if so, delete it (using same code listed above) and end if.
the problem is that sometimes the table doesn't exist... Instead of trapping the error code, is there a way I can check to see if the table exists? If it doesn't I'll simply skip this step of my code and move on.
I have tried the attached code from a previous post http://www.access-programmers.co.uk/forums/showthread.php?t=98727&highlight=table+exists but some of the code doesn't work on Microsoft Access Project. Does anyone have any ideas how I would amend this code so that it works?
I have a problem where a user would enter a project code eg 113-099. I put in a list box that filters all the project codes for instance if the user enters 1 it will show all codes starting with a 1 and every additional number they enter it filters the list box to show which codes already exists! I hope this makes sense.
The problem i have is i need to check when they enter the project code that it is a unique value. The Database developer we got in didnt index this field as no duplicates allowed and as result we have large amount of duplicate project codes.
I have started to experiment with Dlookup but with no great success.
If anyone can help it would be much appreciated as i dont have much experience with access.
The field name on the form is
[forms]![projects_frm].[project_job_number] and the table which stores this information is [projects]
In Access, tables and queries share the same "namespace". This means that a table cannot have the same name as a query, and vice versa. Use this function to determine if a table or query exists with a specific name. This is useful when you are trying to create a new table or query and need to determine a proper name.
True if a table or query exists with the specified name, False otherwise
Sub GetNewTableName ()
' Example code for TableOrQueryExists()
' Prompts the user for the name of a new table,
' and checks to see if a table or query already
' exists with that naForms!Customers.
Dim strName As String
strName = InputBox("What is the name for your new table?")
If strName <> "" Then
If TableOrQueryExists("", strName) Then
MsgBox "That name is already used by a table or query."
MsgBox "The name you entered is acceptable."
Function TableOrQueryExists(strDatabase As String, strName As String) As Boolean
' Comments : Determines if a table or query with the specified name exists
' Parameters: strDatabase - path and name of the database or "" (blank string) for the current database
' strName - name to check for
' Returns : True if a table or query exists with the specified name, False otherwise
Dim db As Database
Dim conTmp As Container
Dim varTmp As Variant
On Error GoTo err_TableOrQueryExists
If strDatabase = "" Then
Set db = CurrentDb()
Set db = DBEngine.Workspaces(0).OpenDatabase(strDatabase)
Set conTmp = db.Containers("Tables")
' Disable error handling and try and reference a table/query with the given name
On Error Resume Next
varTmp = conTmp.Documents(strName).Name
' If an error occurred, there is no object by that name
I have a table called tblAccounts and a form called frmEnter_new_accounts. In my frmEnter_New_Accounts form is a Text Box for Account #. I want to have it so that when the user enters an account # it checks the tblAccounts table for a duplicate account # and then displays a message box (or Pop-Up form) to tell the user that the Account Number entered already exists. I would also like that box to offer the user the option to either Close that form without saving or return to the form to reenter a different account #.
I know I would probably do this in the LostFocus event or BeforeUpdate.
Does anyone have any ideas or samle code to assist me in this adventure?
I use the autoupdater found in the archive to run this db. When I load the db with shift+click, view the code, then run it, it works fine. However, if I try to run it without shift+click, or from the autoupdater, it fails, and I receive this error. Anyone have a clue what is going on?
This is a continuation of a previous post so please bear with me. I have some code I received here which almost works perfect. However, I'm receiving a "Compile Error: ByRef argument type mismatch".
Exist code is:
Private Sub Command100_Click() strName = InputBox("Enter Table Name") If ObjectExists("Table", strName) Then x = MsgBox("Yes it exists", vbInformation, " Table Check") Else x = MsgBox("No it does not exist", vbInformation, " Table Check") End If
The code crashes on the strName in line 3; i.e-, If ObjectExists ("Table", strName) Then
In the current db there are some tables and queries, forms designed around them
With one table Test http://members.optusnet.com.au/~lukechang/access/table_d.JPG
That has 3 records in them http://members.optusnet.com.au/~lukechang/access/table.JPG
Just won't show in form anymore, at this stage http://members.optusnet.com.au/~lukechang/access/form.JPG
The Form was working previously. This is the second time this problem has came up, I thought it would go away if I made a new form and pasted all the controls and codes. It indeed went away for a while until this problem hit me again...
This db is in Access 2000 format and designed using Access 2003
I would appreciate if anyone is willing to point me to the right directions, many many thanks in advance
I know this question has been asked many times, and I have kind of found solutions to do what I need to...but not quite. I was hoping someone could help me out real quick...it is probably just one line of code
I am using RHicks' fTableExist function with basically one change:
Code:Public Function fTableExist(byref db as Object, strTableName As String) As Boolean Dim obj As AccessObject
For Each obj In db.AllTables If obj.Name = strTableName Then fTableExist = True Exit Function End If Next obj End Function
The only difference is that I am also passing in the db that I would like to check in. I am just not sure how I would call this function...ie, how I initialize the object that will be passed into the function as db. I know the path to the database, I am just not sure how to translate that into the correct type of object.
I have 2 tables I'm working with...Jobs and Quotes. When entering a new job (in jobs table) I would like to be able to loop through my quotes table to see if a quote has been entered with the same Job#. If so, then populate the contact information in the Jobs table (to minimize time spent on typing something twice). I know that data will be in my database twice, but the quotes table gets purged periodically (customer choice).
Code: Private Sub JobNumber_AfterUpdate() Dim db As Database Dim rec As DAO.Recordset Dim srcString As String
Set db = CurrentDb Set rec = db.OpenRecordset("Quote", dbOpenDynaset) srcString = "ContractorJobNo = " & Me![JobNumber]
With rec Do While Not .EOF .FindFirst "ContractorJobNo = '" & Forms!Jobs![JobNumber] & "'" If Not .NoMatch Then Forms!Jobs!Name = !JobName Else Forms!Jobs!Name.SetFocus End If .MoveNext Loop End With End Sub
I'm entering a new record in the Jobs table with a job # that I know exists in Quotes but the JobName will not come over from Quotes. The Job# is actually being entered into a text box, I want the "lookup" to be performed after the enter key is pressed. Any suggestions?
I have two related tables (One to many relationship). I've setup a form that allows the user to search for the desired record and enter/edit data on that record in the "many" table. I've also created a button that will allow the user to create a new record on the "many" table. This prompts the user to enter the Account Number (primary key on the base table). The VB I've got so far checks to see if the user did not enter anything and tells the user that they need to enter a valid Account. However, I also want the code to check to see if the Account exists in the base table BEFORE allowing the user to enter data. Access will detect this, but only after the user has entered all the data on that record. Hope I explained this right. Thanks.
I've got code that changes a querydef's SQL and exports the results to Excel. I've been exporting to different files easily enough, but now I want to get crafty and just create one file with many sheets.
Whenever I try to export to the file it says the "Table already exists" even though through code I modify the sheet name prior to process starting all over again. How do I export this same query (although different results) into multiple spreadsheets in the same file??
I have a table to which my user adds a new date from time-to-time. I can't have the same date in the table more than once. I need to check to determine if the data exists in the table and let the user know that the "new" date cannot be added...
The user enters the date to be entered on a form. So I need to check the content of the field on the form to determine if the date is already in the table....
