Modules & VBA :: Check If File Exist On HTTP Server

Sep 13, 2013

I found and modified this code to allow me to check (fast) if a file exist on a http server or not (without downloading it).

Public Function CheckNetFile(WebFile As String)
Dim XmlHttpReq As Object
Set XmlHttpReq = CreateObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP")
XmlHttpReq.Open "HEAD", WebFile, False

[Code] ....

In the above code I managed to declare Webfile as a string so I can call on it later but one thing I still need to tweak is to also get a result out of the test code in a better way than having to publically declare the "CheckNet" variable somewhere else in my app.

First prize would something like this:

If CheckNetFile ("") = 1 then "Yes" else "No"

How do I build the 'booleon check' into the original function?

Modules & VBA :: Create Image File From HTTP Request Response Body?

Oct 24, 2014

I'm working on a database which is designed to connect to an app called Canvas (www dot gocanvas dot com). It's for a client which runs a team of heating engineers. All the information regarding the engineer's job is uploaded to Canvas through their API as an XML file, and the engineers use an app on tablet to view the job details. When the engineer goes to their customer and does some work, the completed info (which parts were serviced etc) is then downloaded as an XML file via the API into the database. Also, the customer signs on the engineer's tablet to confirm that the work has been done.

Although the XML files for the job data upload and download fine, there's a different API for getting a download of the JPEG which contains the customer signature, and I'm having real problems finding out how to use this.

The API guide says this:
The Submissions API is restricted to authenticated users and requires a username and apassword to access. In addition, the ID field is required. If these fields aren't specified, an error is returned.

The result of this webservice invocation will be either a standard JPEG image or an error code.

Example: [URL] ....

All my code (which I've pasted at the foot of this message seems to work fine. There are no errors, and the ResponseBody object appears to contain a byte stream which would be the jpeg... if only I could get it into a jpeg file!

How I go about taking this "stuff" that's come back in the responsebody and actually create a jpeg image file from it? I feel that I'm so close that I can smell it, but can't get the last step!

Here's the existing code :

Sub DownloadImageFile()
Dim xhr As Object
Dim webServiceURL As String
Dim actionType As String
Dim PostData As String
Dim strResult As String

[Code] ....

General :: Delete File From FTP Server

Nov 2, 2014

I need deleting a file from a ftp server. I have the code for uploading but I can't seem to figure out how to delete a file. This is the FTP module I'm using


Public Sub UploadFileToFTPServer()
On Error GoTo ErrHandler
Dim lngRet As Long

[Code] ....

And this is the code for uploading i use in the form when i click a button

Dim objFTP As FTP
Const conTARGET = "ftpserver"
Set objFTP = New FTP
With objFTP

[Code] ....

All that works like a charm.

Code to delete a file from the ftp server, i'm kind of stuck.

Modules & VBA :: Copy Excel File Or A Table In Access To Specific Location On FTP Server

Jul 11, 2013

I need some simple code that will copy an Excel file or a table in Access to a specific location on an FTP server. I would think this would be a very simple task, but I have yet to find any sample code that is *simple*. I have seen lots of code that requires downloading this dll or that mda, but the examples don't work. There must be something built into MS Access 2010 that will allow a file to be uploaded to an FTP site.

All the variables are known:

The FTP location (it never changes)
The FTP Username and Password (they never change)
The destination folder on the FTP site (it never changes)
The File type (it never changes)
The File name (available from the form in Access from which this will be executed)

I can either produce an output file, then copy it to the FTP site, or I can export the table directly to the FTP site with the file name for that day.

This seems to be a very simple task with no simple solution. Currently I am using an FTP app to get the file to the FTP site, but I would like to automate this. The process that creates the output file is already automated, so I would just like to add this to the existing code as its own module.

I'm looking for a simple command on the idea of:

DoCmd.FTPFile, acExel, TableName, FTPFilePath, FTPFileName, Username, Password, acUpload

just made all that above up and none of it is a real function/command in VBA, but is just the kind of thing I'm looking for.

I would think that since I can download and XML file from an FTP site that it should be child's play to upload a simple file to an FTP site, but I can't figure it out.

Modules & VBA :: Deleting Record And Then Delete Listed File?

Jan 7, 2015

What is the correct syntax that would delete a file when the record is deleted. The file's path is listed in a record field, MailLocation. Every time I try this code, I receive an error!

I've tried the below, and number of iterations, including calling the killfile differently (me![MailLocation], me.MailLocation).

Private Sub Form_AfterDelConfirm(Status As Integer)
Dim KillFile As String
KillFile = me!MailLocation
Kill KillFile
End Sub

Does File Server Hosting Back-end Mdb File Need To Have Access

Nov 15, 2013

I'm experimenting with MS Access, and I've successfully split an MDB someone created into two files. I can access the database from 2 computers at once using the front end file connecting to a file server which hosts the _be.mdb file.

Could the _be.mdb file theoretically be on a NAS without any computer attached, or is there some runtime or full version of Access that needs to run on the machine with the back end file?

How To Get Full Permission:Add, Delete, Update, Edit In The SQL Server Database

Jul 26, 2007

I wrote the following statements to update a SQL server database:

Dim MyDb As Database
Dim MyRs As Recordset

Set MyDb = DBEngine.Workspaces(0).OpenDatabase("AMD", dbDriverPrompt, False, "ODBC;DATABASE=AMD;DSN=Remote")

Set MyRs = MyDb.OpenRecordset("SELECT AllAttendanceEvents.* FROM AllAttendanceEvents ORDER BY AllAttendanceEvents.EntryTime DESC")


While Not MyRs.EOF
MyVal = MyRs!EntryTime
Debug.Print MyVal
MyRs!Ix = 50099

When it execute the red line statement, it generates the error:Cannot update. Database or object is read-only.

This error is generated isnpite that I already checked the boxes: SELECT, INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE in the Permissions page of the tables?

Please advise.

Security Leak With Access File On Server

Jun 13, 2005

I have just started working with a team on a database that is available to everyone in this office. We have tried to lock it out and assign permissions by using workgroups, running security wizard, giving users no permissions, and deleting the Admin user, however none of this has sealed the database. The workgroup file is seperate folder on the server and the shortcut we make people use links to that workgroup. However Access is still defaulting to seperate workgroups on users personal computers. Is there anyway we can prevent this? Thanks.

General :: How To Use CDO When Can't Do HTTP Lookups

Jan 2, 2015

We are on Win7 with Office 2013 (32-bit). I have had to migrate my application away from a network that is open to the web. I am now on a more isolated network. My problem is that I can no longer use Outlook for e-mail.

I knew that you can use CDO to send SMTP via a Mail Relay server. We've got one of those on this isolated network... but there is a show-stopper here. When setting up the configuration portion of the CDO message, there are these references using

CDO.Configuration.Fields.Item("HTTP:schema.micro etc.) = value

These references are how you define the SMTP server, server port, authentication method, etc. My problem with this is I can't get to that Microsoft site from the isolated network. The SMTP Relay won't do this lookup for me and I have no general internet access.

When I looked into the CDO library, I found that there were definitions for the fields like cdoSMTPAuthenticate and cdoSMTPServer and cdoSMTPServerPort - but when I attempt to use them, Access doesn't seem to like them even though the CDO library is checked in my references list and those values are defined. For what it is worth, the library file says it is version 6.6.7501 (or something close to that), so it is not the older version. The revision date is 6/6/2012, just about right for a file that would have been included in Office 2013's library set.

How to use CDO when you can't do the HTTP lookups? (I know how to use it when the lookups work...)

Hosting The Access File On A Server And Having Multiple Remote Users

Jun 4, 2007

I am making a database to coordinate the activities of my band (how rock and roll!)...

Is there a way I can somehow host the file remotely, and have users (4 total) access that file through their own computer using access, so they can write, edit, delete records?

We have a db at my work that we use like this, accessing from multiple computers, though this is on a network drive.

Delete File Based On Query.

May 2, 2005

Ok, I have kind of a confusing thing.

Every employee has an ID, and a start date.

Some employees have pictures (stored in a folder).

When someone is terminated, the picture does not get erased (as it shoud).

So, I need to run a query that deletes any pictures older than the start date of the employee.

Any help on this? Not sure where to begin. I suppose I should create a query with employees who have pictures. But how do I compare a files date to an entry in a table?

Example table:

ID Emp Start File
101 John Smith 5/1/2005 \file_serveremppic101.jpg

Modules & VBA :: Column Not Populating From SQL Server

Apr 1, 2014

I am populating Access table using a stored procedure from SQL Server. Here is the code that does the populating.

The problem area is the rst!id (highlighted in red). This is the Identity Column from SQL Server. When Access gets to 32768 it results in a blank in the Access Table. Ive Included the picture.

When I step through the loop and get to that 'id' I can see that the next value is there, by hovering over 'rst!id'. So I know that the value is not NULL but it does not record it in the table.

This continues for the remainder of the load, which is few more thousand rows.

Do Until rst.EOF
strSQL = "INSERT INTO tblStationPatronageEstimate (pax,transactions,time_band,day_type,entrance, " & _
" from_date,to_date,id,station_entrance_id,number_of_days,average_pax_per_day,
average_tran_per_day,vr_used_name,vr_used,userid, " & _
" time_stamp, completed,comment) " & _

[Code] .....

Modules & VBA :: Check To See If SQL Server Exists

Nov 24, 2014

I have an application that I have automatically checking to see if tables are valid and connected, etc. If the app finds that the tables aren't connected or aren't working, it automatically tries to re-connect those tables in the background without the user's knowledge. The time I'm having trouble is if the SQL Server doesn't exists (the back-end tables are on a SQL Server). I would like to check to see if the SQL Server exists before I try to re-connect tables so that no SQL Errors pop up but I'm not sure how to figure that out with VBA.

Modules & VBA :: Determine Excel File Type Without Opening The File?

Aug 14, 2015

Question: Is it possible, using VBA, to determine the actual Excel file type without opening the file?

I receive data files from other departments. Seems like every time someone changes their download structure, I end up with file types that do not match the download extension (example: xlm file with a xls extension). The files can't even be opened because of this. I think I can fix it if I could figure out how to determine what the file type really is.

I'm using Office 2010.

Modules & VBA :: File Open Dialog Does Not Allow Selection Of All File Types

Oct 4, 2013

I recently upgraded a DB from 2003 to 2013 and ran into the following problem.

I have a button that opens a file dialog box and allows the user to upload a file to a predetermined location (and store the address as a hyperlink). I borrowed this code from someone else on here and modified it slightly.

In any case, the button still works, but now when it opens it doesn't have an option for "All files" under file types. So I can upload MS Office files, text files, etc., but not PDF files which are by far the most common types my users upload.

Here's my code and a screenshot is attached.

Private Sub Command35_Click()
Dim dd As Integer
Dim fileDump As FileDialog
Set fileDump = Application.FileDialog(msoFileDialogOpen)
dd = fileDump.Show

[Code] ....

Modules & VBA :: Filesystemobject File Picker Does Not Highlight Initial File

Jun 20, 2014

I am using the following code to select files using Microsoft Office's file dialog:

Public Function fTestFilePicker() As String
Dim fdFileSelection As Office.FileDialog, lstrFileName As String
Const kInitialFile = "F:TestbedTest.txt"
Set fdFileSelection = Application.FileDialog(msoFileDialogFilePicker)
With fdFileSelection
.AllowMultiSelect = False

When I execute it, the file picker goes to the right folder but does not highlight the file test.txt even though that file name shows in the File name text box. Is there any way to correct this?

Modules & VBA :: How To Alter Tables In SQL Server From Access

Jul 7, 2015

I have an access front-end package that works just fine but if there is an update, I just want the program to run scripts to update the SQL Server tables that it is connected to. I just don't know how to do this. I know how to do this on SQL Server Management studio and all, I just was hoping I could do it straight from my access front end so that a user could just click a button and update the tables or something.

Modules & VBA :: Scheduled Task On Windows Server

Apr 20, 2015

I have a vbs-script that opens my access database db.mdb and runs the module "Export":

dim accessApp

accessApp.Run "Export"

set accessApp = nothing

This works fine as a scheduled task on a Windows 7 computer.

Is there a way to make this work on a Windows Server 2008 R2 ? When I double click the vbs-file, the file opens instead of runs. And when I create a scheduled task, nothings happens.

Modules & VBA :: Storing Attachments On Linked SQL Server

Jun 27, 2013

I'm trying to store files on a linked SQL Server table, much the way I would using the Attachment data type in Access. (I couldn't use the Attachment data type, though, due to size restrictions - we're storing about a gig a week.)

Almost everyone says to store the attachments on a file system and save the location - I can't do that because of varying permissions. The files HAVE to be stored in the SQL Server table for security reasons.

So how do I do it? I've tried converting the files to binary and updating the recordset that way, but it always comes back as null. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong.

Public Function Test(strFile As String) As Boolean
Dim rsAtts As dao.Recordset
Dim ifilenum As Double
Dim btAR() As Byte
Set db = CurrentDb

[Code] ....
