Modules & VBA :: Update Data In A Bunch Of Tables Of SQL Server Database

Apr 25, 2014

I need to update data in a bunch of tables of a sql server database. The database has 300 tables which I have linked via odbc. I'm hoping there is a simple way, using vba, to loop through my linked sql server tables and determine which of them are views as opposed to tables.

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.

Modules & VBA :: Update Data Between Tables Using A Date

Jan 10, 2015

I have two identical Databases - one is a Live DB and the other is a Training DB. The data is held on a sql server connected to an access front end. (I do not have access to the sql server).

- On each table I have a field called UpdatedOn
- On each table every record has one field that is a unique ref. But the name of each field containing the unique ref is different on each table
- There are about 100 table to loop through.

What I need is some code that will loop through each table and each record, and where the UpdatedOn field on the live DB is not equal to the UpdatedOn on the training DB - update the whole line on the training DB with the Live DB data using the unique ref

I intend to only have one access client and import the sql tables from the Live and Training into the one. Therefore for example sqlMyTable will be live DB and sqlMyTable1 will be the Training DB

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 :: Update Access Table From SQL Server Table Source

Jun 17, 2013

I have created a code below to test whether I can run a query and retrieve a data from an SQL server table. And so far I can return the result using a messagebox. but somehow I just don't know how to use this connection to update the table inside this access file. Basically I want to use this as a front end file. then when the form is open it will automatically update the table inside this access file and load the data to the combo box as a list.


Option Compare Database
Sub LocalServerConn_Test()
Set conn = New adodb.Connection
Set rst = New adodb.Recordset

Tables :: Update Data In Related Tables?

Oct 22, 2014

I have to make a Costing System but for that I need to enter our Expense details in database according to Fiscal year and months.

I need a table for Fixed expenses and one for Variable Expenses and then I need one or more Forms to update data in those tables. Now I've created a table with Fixed Expenses. I have to update Year and Amount in that. Now it is only letting me one entry per Expense.

I want multiple entries for one Expense say 'Advertising' for different years. I'm thinking may be I need to make more than one Table, may be one for Expenses with ExpenseID and other for Years with Year and YearID and the third one for Amount with columns Amount, Method of Payment, Date and Notes. I did tried this but I think I'm not creating proper relation may be because its only updating for one year.

I'm using Access 2003.

2 Forms On 1 Page. (and Having A List Box Populate A Bunch Of Fields)

Mar 15, 2006

You veterans have probably heard these questions many times, I've had a search around but couldn't find quite what i was after.

This is my first database.

I have 2 tables, one for customer details, and the other is products (holiday packages)

I have made a product form for staff to input new holiday packages. And for the customer form this is also the order form, so a staff member picks up the phone and gets customer details, name, ph, etc and then asks what holiday package they want. I want this to be a drop down list that always fetches all the packages availiable form the product table and when you choose a package it shows all the details on that package.

I need this all to be on the 1 form, if the staff member has to swap back and forth between customer form and product form to get info on a product this will severly hamper productivity.

If my question is abit hard to understand i can take screen shots of my tables/forms to get a better idea. And if someone can really help me finish this database off i'll pay them somethign for there trouble.

Regards, Chris.

Tables :: Two Identical Database - Importing Tables By Linking To Data Source

Dec 3, 2012

I have 2 identical database in terms of structure but it differs in data.

Basically I would like to import data from subDatabase to mainDatabase and ensuring that there are no duplicate records.

I have used the "link to datasource method" through importing the tables to have the "updating" function.

However, this method also means that the records in mainDatabase are also imported over to subDatabase which I do not want.

Is there a method to ensure that the records are shared/update one way only? (i.e. import from subDatabase to mainDatabase and not main to sub?)

Queries :: Update Data From One Database In Another One

Aug 23, 2013

I'm relatively new to MS Access (using MS Access 2013 but the db should work on 2010, too) and try to develop a database for an NGO I'm working in. [...].

However now I start to create forms and later reports for the actual user. The database will store information about clients and track consultations and assistance the NGO gives to them. There will be around 50.000 to 70.000 clients in the main table. Every client has a specific Individual ID and is member of a family which itself has another specific Group ID.

So now, I am almost done with forms (at least I want to believe that). But I ran into an issue I would love to have your comment and different approach on:

The Database I create is projected on another, significantly bigger database! The one I create is a kinda light version for other field offices with only the information they need to have, and additional tables for them to gather their own data and track their own activities. This being said, the light database needs to be updated every month once by the big (mother version). Both DBs cannot be connected!!!

So we will send to the field offices altogether 5 tables in one mdb-file every month. These 5 tables exist with the same structure ( name, field data-types, etc.) in the light version.

I now want to make an automatic update option (by pressing a key and select the "update-file"), i.e. based on the the respective Primary Key of every table the entry in the smaller DB should be updated!

Update for me means the following three things (Assume big DB is A, small DB is B):

1) If Primary Key (PK) exists in both tables of A and B, update the rest of the fields in B belonging to that key based on the specific record of A

2) If PK does not exist in A but in B, delete record from the database B (case: record was deleted in A after last update)

3) If PK does not exist in B but in A, add the record to database B (case: record was added to database A after last update)

I would like to show you what I already found in the internet on solving task 1) but I cannot post links due to my status.

Both links basically describe how to update one table by another in importing or linking the update-source table in the current DB, create a query with both tables, link the PKs of both and then using the Update To Criteria [UpdateSourceTable].[Field] for each field that I want to update.

But I wanted to ask before I implemented that if I should make a complete different approach since I also have 2) and 3) as tasks....

Split Database. Update Linked Tables If Back End Moved.

Dec 7, 2007


I'm about to move to a back end / front end system, from a single database file. Before I do so, I want to make sure I have all bases covered so to speak.

My back end file will reside on a server. I am aware that path names are sometimes changed by network administrators without warning.

From tests, I notice that, if the path to the back end can't be found, one cannot open the front end database file at all (Access 2003).

My question is: if my back end file gets moved, or the path changed, how can I get into my front end file to update the linked tables.

Many thanks in advance.

Modules & VBA :: Update Access Database (multiple Rows)

Jan 7, 2014

I have a table called "Mov" and its columns are:

Number | Link | Name | Status
1899 | htto:// | code1 | Done
2 | htto:// | code23455 | Done
3 | htto:// | code2343 | Done
13500 | htto:// | code234cv | Deleted
220 | htto:// | code234cv | Null
400 | htto:// | code234cv | Null

So I want a way to update Status of my rows according to numbers list. For example I want to update Status column for multiple numbers to become Done .

Simply I want to update "Null status" to become "Done" according to its numbers according to this list


Something like this

I tried "update query" but I don't know how to use criteria to solve this problem. In Excel I did that by "conditional formatting duplicates" -with my number list which I wanted to update - Then "sort by highlighted color" then "fill copy" the status with the value...

Modules & VBA :: Update Open Form After Linking To A New Backend Database

Mar 18, 2014

I have an Access DB with a form that allows the user to select a new backend database. I can connect to the backend and then .refreshlinks but nothing on the form is updated. I have tried requiring the form but that doesn't do anything. I've tried loads of other things, refresh, recalc etc., but nothing updates the open form.

The only way I have managed to get it to work is to close the form and reopen it, then it shows the data from the newly linked backend database.

While it works, it doesn't look good but also there seems to be some problem with it because eventually it reports an error saying "cannot open any more databases" and when clicking OK comes back with "An error occurred while sending data to the OLE server (the application used to create the object" and a whole bunch of other messages.

I think it might have something to do with the fact that the form has a number of MS graphs open on it, but I'm not sure. Also, I can't track down a particular line of VBA code which causes this error.

Tables :: Update Or Merge Data Into Table

Aug 15, 2013

I have an Employee Records table with 29k records that I originally imported from an HRIS system. Lets call this table ORIGINAL table.Each week I export a new Employee Records table from the HRIS system as it contains the latest updated information. IE - New hires, terminations, rate changes, etc. Lets call this table NEW table. It likely contains new records as well as we hire 100+ people per week.

In the ORIGINAL table, I have added fields that are not included in the NEW table. I need to update the records / fields in the ORIGINAL table with the NEW table, but need to keep the ADDED fields.Originally my plan was just to overwrite the ORIGINAL table with the NEW table until I added the additional fields to the ORIGINAL table. I thought that I could export the added fields in the ORIGINAL table, import the NEW table, and run and update query based on the EE ID#.

Entering Data In A Form - Update Autonumber On Two Tables?

Jul 19, 2006


My first post is on something that is troubling me. I have a Form acting as the display and entry point for data for a contact list, which is composed of two Tables as follows:

Contact - (text fields including: first name, last name, phone number home, phone number work, etc)

Industry Role - (yes/no tick boxes including: film, photographer, audio engineer, producer, reporter, etc)

The two Tables have a one to one relationship based on the URN field which is an autonumber. My problem is that when someone enters say a name, and then ticks a box, the autonumber will add two entries because it seems to see the first table then the second tables as sequential, and not the same thing. How do i go about making a form that can enter new records the same autonumber for two connected Tables?

Update Tables With Missing Data Without Using Unmatched Query?

Aug 13, 2013

I have an access database with several linked tables (linked to MySQL database) and several local tables. The theory is that if there's ever a connection issue, the device connected to the computer will continue logging data to the local tables. Once a connection is re-established, the linked tables should be updated with all the missing records which appear on the local tables.

I found several possibilities which I outlined below, but I've been asked to investigate whether there's a built in function in access that does this for you and use the other options as a last resort. Does access have any program feature that updates one table with missing data from another table, or will I have to write VBA code to do that? Options I've discovered:

1) Write unmatched query and insert missing data into table.

2) Create a linked table on MySQL that will link to the local tables on access, then compare the records there.The boss isn't happy with those options because he wants to keep the amount of code we add to a minimum. Ultimately, we hope that a program feature that does this is built in to access. If not, I have no problem adding code to do this instead.

How To Create A Form That Can Update Data Linked To Multiple Tables

Jul 30, 2012

I'm using Access and Excel 2007.... I know how to import an Excel spreadsheet as a table.

I have several supplier price lists in Excel. I want to keep my vendor price lists up to date.

When one of my vendors tell me that a price has changed on a particular item, I figure that I could have a form that I could use to enter the changes.

I believe the form would look like:

Field: "Vendor" (drop down list to choose from. Name of the Supplier price lists) Required.
Field: "OEM" (Key Field found in each table) Required.
Field: "Brand" (Field found in each table) Not required.
Field: "Price" (Field found in each table) Required.

OEM would be the unique key field.

If I enter the Vendor name and then the OEM number it would show if there is already that number in the Vendor price list and I could make changes. Or I could enter new data in that vendor price list.

Wierd Prob: Cannot Update SQL Server Text-fields For Some Records, But Can For Others

Feb 22, 2005


I have a very strange problem:

I have a table linked to an SQL Server table in my MS Access 2000 Application containing 5 text-fields (SQL Server Type, in Access seen as MEMO-fields) and several other fields (in total about 140 fields). Updating any field works fine except for some records. In those records I can only edit the non-text-fields in my application. When I try to edit one of the text-fields I get a error message telling me that another user has edited the record and i have to discard my changes.

The strange thing is that this problem only crops up for some records. (1 in a 100 or so) All other records work fine.

Does anyone know what happens here? And how this can be fixed?
