General :: Split Database - Cannot Edit Table Design Despite Snapshot Usage

May 27, 2014

I have a split database made in Access 2007. Each user gets their own copy of the frontend from a script. I wanted to be able to edit the design view of the backend tables even if people were using the database so I made all the forms use snapshot source and only allowed data updates through VBA macro update queries. Having any form open locks the backend source table from being edited. In fact, I've found that just having a normal snapshot query open causes the message "Either an object bound to table 'whatever' is open or another user has the table open. Do you want to open the table as read-only?"

Is there some way to have a table be the source for a form or query, but still have it designable under most circumstances?

Attempted to late-bind a recordset on form load; result was the same:

Set rs = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("Select redacted as ft from tblRedacted ", dbOpenSnapshot, dbReadOnly)
Set Me.Recordset = rs
Set rs = Nothing

Split Database Design

Sep 11, 2005

I am combining 12 Databases. I have split all 12 between the server and the desktop. My question is “Should I combing all of the data table on the server into one database or should I leave all of the individual application data tables in separate Databases on the server”. Additionally, is there a limit to the number of tables an Access DB can handle? My inclination is to keep the functionality separated but the problem I have is that some of the functionality within the applications overlap. Recommendations!

Split Access Database Doesn't Load Records In Form To Edit

Aug 23, 2011

I have an Access 2010 database that I have split. In the database I have a couple tables, forms and two reports. I have entered some data into one of the tables, but when I go to edit the data in the form the next time, there is no data (though I have verified that there is data in the table). Also, there are two reports that can pull the data without any problem.

Why the data wouldn't show up in the form.

General :: Split Database - Unable To Find Table Location

Mar 24, 2014

I'm having a problem with a database that i had split. While creating teh database, i had it stored on my personal drive at work, but wanted to move it to the shared drive so the data could be stored there. this is to deal with cross site network connectivity issues that we encountered with another database here at work.

When splitting the database, i split it on my personal drive and then dragged the back end to the common drive. I realized my error, but when attempting to correct it, i somehow have two of the same file, and no back end?

I receive the error on the attached document when attempting to access any of the tables or information in either of the files, the "back end" that i placed on teh drive, and the "front end" that i have on my personal drive.

I also tried to relink the tables through the linked table manager, but receive the same error when attempting that.

Is there a way to recover from this? I had backed up my file by making a copy prior to splitting, but somewhere in this process, this became linked to these and is having the same issue. Is there a way to recover the old "unsplit" version? I cannot copy over all of teh tables, etc. because i get the same error as earlier.

I can attach a copy of my database for reference...

General :: Database Design - Stock Tracking / Set Up Table For Each Location

Sep 10, 2012

I am planning my new DB and am contemplating the best design. It will be used for warehouse stock rotation and control of pallets. I want to track each pallet (product/time in/time out etc) to each pallet space within the warehouse. There are a total of 400 pallet spaces or 'locations' as i will refer to them as.

Now, would it be possible for me to have a table set up for each location? Will access object to having 400 tables in my data base?? Is there a limit?

General :: Split Database With Runtime?

May 21, 2013

I haven't done any testing yet on splitting the database I'm working on but a question came up today about networking.

This database is going to be used by a few equipment operators to record machine readings on the manufacturing floor. There is a wireless network and we are in the process of confirming that the wireless signal reaches all the areas. The users will be using ruggedized windows tablets to enter the data.

The BE of the split database will reside on a network drive to ensure everyone that needs it will have access and it will be regularly backed up. etc.

Since there is alot of heavy machinery, there may be some spots where connectivity will be weak or non-existent while they are entering their readings.

The question is how will the runtime FE handle it if connectivity is temporarily interrupted?

General :: Move A Split Database

Aug 7, 2013

I tried saving my split database to a flash drive so I could move it to a computer that is connected to the shared server but it did not go as I planned. The back end with the tables works fine, but when I try to open the Form on the front end it says it cannot be located. I just want to take all the files I have (Should only be 2 front/back ends) and move them onto a new computer.

General :: Split Database With Not Valid Path

Nov 6, 2013

I am attempting to split an Access 2007 database. My company has two locations. From my location we are remote connecting into the server. While down there they are connecting directly. When I split the database, people in my location can use it fine. When people down there use it, they get a not valid path error.

This is because the network drives are mapped differently. I have been reading that the solution is to use the UNC for the back end file path.

General :: Split Database Access FE And SQL Server BE

Mar 4, 2014

I am currently working on an application where I am using MS access as my FE and working with linked tables to SQL server BE. I also have a few temp tables within Access that are not linked but needed.

1. What are my steps into making this into a SPLIT DB? I am assume the BE will have my linked tables from SQL and the FE will have my temp tables and forms. Is this correct?
2. Once I split it, then I can make an .ACCDE file for a Mulit User environment, is this correct?

What other steps should I be made aware of?

General :: Backup BACK-END Of A Split Database

Jan 24, 2014

I am trying to use VBA to backup the BACK-END of a split database (so I can automatically archive selected data). If I use FileCopy I get a message that the BACK-END database has not been found.Obviously I could 'unlink' the BACK-END, copy it and 're-link' it..Is it possible to copy the BACK-END tables(not just the links) into the FRONT-END and get at them that way?

General :: Securing A Database / Can't Edit Forms / Reports / Queries

Jan 21, 2014

I'm trying to secure my database so users can't edit tables, forms, reports, queries, etc.I'm splitting the database, making an ACCDE for users:

1. I inserted code to disable the bypass key.
2. I inserted code to hide the Quick Access Toolbar (QAT) in the On_Load sub of the form that opens with the DB.
3. Deselect Navigation Pane, Allow Full Menus and Allow Default Shortcut Menus are deselected
4. Then, I use the immediate window to show the QAT, I then create an ACCDE.

How do I link this ACCDE with the original ACCDB? Am I supposed to delete tables from the front end and link the forms/reports to the back end DB?

General :: Split Database - Users Seeing Blank Forms

Apr 10, 2013

I have a split database consisting of an ACCDB backend helf on a shared drive, and a local ACCDR frontend distributed through email. I recently distributed a copy of the ACCDR to a user, and she says that the main menu opens fine, but when she clicks a button to open a form, the form opens but is completely blank. I've googled some possible causes for this (e.g. on Allen Brown's website) and none seem to be relevant, or would explain why this started happening all of a sudden. I can't reproduce this bug at all.

General :: Split Database - Inconsistent Number Of Records

Nov 8, 2012

I have split the database, with the back-end residing on the server. Only 1 other person is working in Access right now; she's verifying the data. Today she's working directly in the back-end, could this be the problem. If it is, I'm going to have to create a front-end for her quickly.

My problem is this...I'm working on queries and forms so that the scientists who will ultimately be using this application, won't be able to go in and inadvertently change something in the tables set-up. When I'm in the back-end main data table, it says I have 2723 records.

When I create a front-end query to query all the records in that table, it says I have 2160 records.

The input form that I created with most of the same fields as the query (created BEFORE I created the query...I'll have it pull from the query now instead of directly from the table) also says we only have 2160 records.

General :: Split Database - Prevent Linking To Back End

Jun 25, 2015

I have a split database. I have secured the mde sufficiently but I need to secure the back end so that no one could link to tables in it. If I introduce a password to the back end is this going to require those using front end to supply the password? If not then this could be good solution.

As the database is on the network drive, is there any other way to prevent people to link to the db? Can I hide the db in the network drive? Or should I hide tables in the BE. Should these still be available to be linked?

General :: Find Instances Of Field Name Usage

Jul 21, 2013

I have written a large database for the school I used to work for. In the main table there is a field named "Active" which is text with yes or no choices.Is there a way to find in what objects this field is being used in the database?

For the life of me I can't remember why I put this field in or if its even used now.This database has had many versions over the years.

I have searched many of the queries but can not find where this field is used.If there isn't a way I plan to backup, remove field from table and test all the features of the program to see which crashes. However I'm hoping there might be a quicker way.This was one of the first DB I wrote and didn't pay much attention to mapping or keeping notes back then.
