Import C++ Class Object To VB
I have a situation in which it would be really advantageous to be able to import into VB a stack class I wrote some years ago in C++. I was wondering if one could make a DLL that would not only hold functions, but also a class utilizing a linked list. In other words, it needs to hold data in memory, not just a funciton library. If this is not possible, is there another way?

X-File-Import: Object Is Invisible, Window Only White
I have tried to import the x-file from Tutorial6 from MS Visual Studio .NET and it worked.
After that I imported a teapot with bmp-texture from 3dsmax6. Because that didn't work (direct x initialization error), I loaded the model into MS Mesh Editor and exported it from there. The result was a text-file that looked different from the file 3dsmax exported.
Ok, Tutorial6 read this file without complaints, but the model is not visible and the area is only white.
It's a school project and it has to be finished soon, so please help.

Import To Access
I need to import an Excel spreadsheet into an Access table through Visual Basic 6. Is this possible and, if so, how? I read somewhere about a TransferSpreadsheet method, but I'm not sure how to use it and what references must be included to enable it. Can someone please help? Thanks.
Import To Access
Using VB, have written code to go line by line in an excel file and save the data in access but is very slow.

Import From Access
I'm trying to import information from a table in an access database and only receiving garbage. I'm using the standard, open "database" for import as #1 statement and receive 3 fields containing, 0,0, with the 3rd field containing strange character combinations. What am I missing?
Import SQL Into Access

Import A CSV Into Access From VB6
Here is the scenario, I'm writing an application in VB that pulls data either out of an Access or SQL db, run's it through some software to varify the addresses and then reimports it and does some resulting.
The problem is i can't find a way i'm happy with for getting the data back into Access, with SQL its not a problem i just use a DTS with some global variables.
The only way i can see to do it is to open both the text file and the Access db, and loop through the text file adding in records to the Access table, which is very slow.
The only other possible way i can think to do it is to use a SQL dts with a text file source and an Access Detination, but i'm not keen on that either, bit round the house's + the users may not have access to a sql server.
Anyone got a better way to do it?
Access 2k Import
I have just written a new import routine which uses the following line:
DoCmd.TransferText acImportDelim, "MPEImport", "HOLDING_DATA_MPE", strMPEInputFolderPath & "" & strNewInputFileName
The import spec MPEImport has the same fields as the table HOLDING_DATA_MPE bar 1 (which is used for date formatting).
I have tried to manually import to check that the output file to be imported (strNewInputFileName) contains the correct fields in the correct order. The fields are all in the correct places but I get an error telling me that the file may not exist (altho it definatly does coz I had to find the file in an FSO to import it and I could see the field values in the wizard).
Deciding that this could be a bug with the manual import, I proceeded to test the code import. I get no error but some of the fields are missing so the remaining fields have all been pushed over to the left.
Does anyone know what could be wrong here?
The file needs to be changed to txt format (from a .bill extension) , which is done in code but can be done manually if you want to try a manual import. It can be read in notepad.
I have attached the .bill file (also sheet1 on .xls), the import spec MPEImport (Sheet2 on .xls) and the resulting HOLDING_DATA_MPE table content (sheet3 on .xls)

Import Excel Into Access.
I know there are a number of examples of this already but I can't seem to get them working. This is my code and I get an error (80004005) 'The database has been placed in a state by user...'
I assume I can't run this code from the mdb I am trying to import into. What I want to do is have a button on a form that will load an excel file to a table. So - from excel to an open access db. Does anyone have time to look at this?
Private Sub cmd_importExcel2_Click()
Dim Cn As ADODB.Connection
Set Cn = New ADODB.Connection
'lets connect to the workbook first, I tested this, it works for me
Cn.Open "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=D:New ProjectsImpact Tool est.xls;Extended Properties=Excel 8.0;" _
& "Persist Security Info=False"
<b>'Here is the problem - can I just point to the current open db?</b>
' Append data from Sheet1 of workbook to Table1 of mydb.mdb:
Cn.Execute "INSERT INTO [Table1] IN 'D:New ProjectsImpact Tool est.mdb' SELECT * FROM [Sheet1$]"
Set Cn = Nothing
After this - does anyone know of good links that show how to read through a record set? What I would like to do is load the excel file as a RS before I insert it - and then check the first two fields to see is they are valid (if the city is in the right province etc.)?
Excel Import To Access
I'm running this code in a window script. (extention .vbs)
set oAcc = CreateObject("Access.Application")
oAcc.Visible = True
oAcc.OpenCurrentDatabase "C:Shipping DatabaseShippingDatabase.mdb"
oAcc.DoCMD.TransferSpreadsheet 0,8,"Freight Tracking Database","C:InetpubwwwrootCopy of SHIPPING.xls",0
oAcc.UserControl = True
I need something a little more complicated. My Field Names are not the same between Excel and Access so the TransferSpreadsheet doesn't work. I would like to run an SQL INSERT Statement to transfer everything over and then I can use aliases and other fun things. I know another way to do this in asp but you have to have a named range which isn't possible in my situation. I'm not sure where to go from here. I don't have visual studio so everything I do needs to be done from windows scripting host or asp.
Is there anyway to execute a SQL statement in the code above that will affect the whole spreadsheet without needing a named range?

I need all this to be done programmatically... HELP

Automated Import (ACCESS)
Here's another conundrum for you guys. I'm trying to create a facility whereby the user would be able to choose various types of files to import (Excel, Text etc...) and their location and import them into a designated table (created on the fly, but that's not important right now)
My problem is that the format of the files are different every time (coming from different clients), so i don't know how i could duplicate the wizard that analyses the data and puts it in the right fields i.e. delimited or fixed width option, seperated by comma and so on...
Now, Excel is easy (as long as the input table has F1,F2...Fn as field names), but how do i do the same with a TXT file, especially when it comes to Fixed Width and a DOS method of string saving (try any export from access to see that).
Any help here would be hot.
p.s. I supply the code i tried with readline, putting it into an array for analysis, but that's where i come stumped.
'Connect to external database and delete the array table so it can be recreated
Set dbClientDB = OpenDatabase(strDBPath, True, False)
For Each tblArrayTable In dbClientDB.TableDefs
If tblArrayTable.Name = "tblArrayTable" Then
'Create the array table with 250 fields for examination by the user
Set tblArrayTable = dbClientDB.CreateTableDef("tblArrayTable")
For lngCounter = 1 To 250
Set fld = tblArrayTable.CreateField("F" & lngCounter, dbText, 250)
'Delete the link to the array table if exists in the database and relink it (works on whether it existed b4 or requires it anew)
For Each tblArrayTable In CurrentDb.TableDefs
If tblArrayTable.Name = "tblArrayTable" Then
DoCmd.DeleteObject acTable, tblArrayTable.Name
DoCmd.TransferDatabase acLink, "Microsoft Access", strDBPath, acTable, "tblArrayTable", "tblArrayTable"
'Determine client file format and import 10 lines from the file to put into the array table for examination by user
Select Case fraFileType
Case 1 'Text
Set varScriptingAgent = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set varImportTextFile = varScriptingAgent.OpenTextFile(fldImportFileLocation, 1)
For lngCounter = 1 To 10
If varImportTextFile.AtEndOfStream Then Exit For
strImportLineArray(lngCounter) = varImportTextFile.readline
'This is where i come undone. How can I analyse the data in the array to determine what to put in which field???

Import Text To ACCESS
I am actually doing the program in ACCESS using DoCmd. Transfertext. I set up the specification file, and manually it works and import the file on the table. But to automate it.. I have something like..
Dim strFile As String
Dim myPath As String
myPath = CurDir
strFile = myPath & "sr14"
strFile = "" & strFile & ""
DoCmd.TransferText acImportFixed, "sr14-import", "SR0014short", strFile
MsgBox "SRR014 raw data upload was successfull", vbOKOnly
Now the problem is I get a runtime error:Runtime error"3051" MsJet database engine canot open the file "sr14.txt"
It is already open exclusively by another user, or you need permission to view its data..
I don't understand, the file is not at all open, and also the file cannot be opened by another user because I am the only user of my network drive. I also am the only one who have access to it, so I don't need permission to view its data. Please suggest any thing that I missed on my codes.

Access Import Wizard & VB 6
I am currently migrating an application from Access 2000 to VB 6. All was going fine till I came to the following line which appears to be unique to Access.
This Access import wizard is critical to my application due to its flexability and GUI. Is there a way to code this Access command (or equivlant wizard) into Visual Basic 6? Thanks!
Import Access Form
I have a form that I made in Access 2000, I was wondering if it is possible to open/import that to a VB program.
Basically, I wrote up a program just for that database, but to enter data you still have to open up Access, and go to the form to enter data. It would be a lot more user friendly (and I would also be happy to learn this) to just have the form open up in the program.
Now, perhaps if I can't do that I could recreate the form (just some text-boxes, and combo-boxes), have the user enter the data and use SQL to update the original access form. However, it would be so much easier to just import it somehow.
If anyone has any ideas or thoughts, I would appreciate it.
Import XML Into Access 2000

Import Txt File To Access
I have several txt files all with different fieldnames. Currently the database imports them into a table using transfer text. I need all the fields to be text but things like postcodes are going is as numeric fields. I am aware of the schema.ini files but cant see how I can get it to use the fieldnames from the file (because they always change) but set all fields to text. Is there any way other than programming??
I was thinking maybe read txt file to get the fieldnames and create table 1st
then I can set all fields format to txt
then import file
thought there may be a better/quicker way I am not aware of
Import From Excel To Access
Is there an easy way to do this? I need to copy the entire Sheet 1 (with the except of row one [headers]) to the end of a current table. Any ideas on how I can do this?
Let me clarify here... I know about both ADO and TransferSpreadsheet (and Text), but I think ADO is going to be the easiest to do. I'm just not sure how I'm to select everything from A:1 to the end of Sheet 1 (thru the range) using and ADO commands.
Access Database Import
I am trying to import a text delimited file into a Access database. I can do this manually without any errors, but when I do it through the VB code using the input statement and adding records to the database, I get an error when...
Some of the fields I am importing have double quotes in the line ("). The VB code is treating them as a field separator while the Access import function does not.
Is there a way to cause the Access import function to start from within VB, or is there a way to get around the double quote problem?
Any help would be appreciated.

How To Import A Report From Access To A VB App?
Once upon a time someone in my company made a report in Access to make labels with the client's name, address, city and zip (each is a field in a "Clients" table).
Now I'm making a VB app and those labels are to be included in the app, so each label can be printed and glued to an envelope (just for you guys to understand what it is for).
In my app I have a form where the user selects wich Clients he wants to mail to, and therefore:
1- I have to tell to the report wich clients' name, address etc. will be in the report (report-alike "sheet")
2- Tell it to Print (since I have to create a Print button, but never coded anything related to a printer)
3- Put a "Mr." or "Mrs." in the line above the name line (yes, I have a gender field in the same table)
Can someone help me, especially in point 1 and 2?

Import SMS Messages To Access DB
I'm not sure if this is the right forum so I'm going to post this in a couple of places. Apologies for the duplication.
I need to automatically import SMS text messages into a table in an access database. The SMS messages are basically coming in as a simple comma delimited text file with 6 or 7 pieces of data in each row (eg, itemnum, temp, battery, sample).
It's easy to use the "get external data" command and manually import the file that way, but I'm going to be receiving one message every 30-45 minutes and am looking for an application or some code that will automatically retrieve the messages and do the import in one step.
Ideally the code/application could be scheduled to run frequently or just to sweep a folder location for any new files once a day and import them all to the same table, appending rows as it imports.
Anyone heard of anything like this before or have any suggestions?
