Updating Multiple Rows In One Update Query Help Please!

Mar 7, 2008

I have one table, I want to update multiple fields in that Table with values.Currently I have on update query for each update.So for exampleRows: Commercial Quotes, Cover Notes, Personal QuotesWill have the values: Yes, No, Yes in them.I need to update those fields, if they say Yes to Commercial Quotes, Cover Notes or Personal Quotes depending on the field obviously. And blank them out if it says No.Currently I have 30+ different queries I have to click individually one after the other to update each row. I was wondering if theres a quicker way of doing this all in one hit.I have a tiny bit of SQL knowledge.So one of the queries I've figured out I've converted to SQL but again it only updates one instance...UPDATE Enabler_Data SET Enabler_Data.[Commercial Quotes] = "Commercial Quotes" WHERE (((Enabler_Data.[Commercial Quotes]) = "YES"));I tried whacking an OR replacing the ; and repeating that statment replacing Commercial Quotes with Cover Notes but it errored out on me.This is where I get completely stuck and my meagre knowledge fails me so any help would be useful.Thanks in advanceMatt

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://example.com/code1 | code1 | Done
2 | htto://example.com/code23455 | code23455 | Done
3 | htto://example.com/code2343 | code2343 | Done
13500 | htto://example.com/code234cv | code234cv | Deleted
220 | htto://example.com/code234cv | code234cv | Null
400 | htto://example.com/code234cv | 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...

General :: Update Table Based On Form - Create Multiple Rows

Apr 15, 2014

I have a table with the following columns: Task, Visa type, time it takes to perform the task. There are several taks that are performed for all visa types. I want to create a form to enter data to the table in which for the field visa type I have a list box that can allow multiple values, however, I do not to create a single line with the task and on visa type all the types of visas selected. I want to create a line for each type of visa with the information introduced.

I don't know if this is possible, the reason for which I want for the form to create several rows depending on the visas types is because then I have a query that sums all the types of visas. Can this be possible? I don't want the people to introduce manually directly to the table the data and also that for the same taks they have to enter manually 50 rows with values. I want it to be more simple and easier.

Queries :: Concatenate Multiple Rows Without VBA

Sep 23, 2014

I am trying to concatenate multiple rows into one record. I googled it and found many functions in VBA that do the job. However my problem is that my query will be linked directly to Excel file and then I get an error message saying that Excel could not recognise this function. I could potentially insert data into new table and link that table to Excel but I need to avoid end-user exposure to Access as much as possible.

So I am desperately trying to find a way of doing this without VBA code.

Example of data:

Customer Name |Order Number
Smith |O101
Brown |O102
Smith |O103
Green |O104
Brown |O105

I am trying to achieve below:

Customer Name |Order Number
Smith |O101, O103
Brown |O102, O105
Green |O104

Queries :: Multiple Rows In A Query?

Jun 10, 2013

I have a table where and account could have multiple rows with different data like Applied_Date and Trans_Code, and AMOUNT. The AMOUNT in two of the rows will be a positive and a negative and will be zero each other out. I am trying to create a query that will only return the the rows that do not offset each other. Here is an example of my table:

292020 M 5/11/2012 ($33.95)
292020 11 5/14/2012 $33.95
292020 A 5/30/2012 ($33.95)

Queries :: Convert Multiple Rows Of Data Into 1 Row

Oct 11, 2013

I am designing a bead ornament database for my mom to track inventory of beads, inventory of finished ornaments and cost/pricing. I have a table that joins the Item and bead part with the quantity of each bead part needed, it has the following fields: ItemMatlID, ItemID, BeadPartID, QtySo I have multiple rows of ItemIDs for all the BeadPartID & Qtys.Now I need a query with 1 line per Item and all BeadParts and their quantities. However, I need the BeadPart to be a row data and not a column heading. So a crosstab is out, I believe since it wants to make the BeadPart the column heading and not data in the query.

Queries :: Transform Table With Multiple Rows To One Row?

Dec 22, 2014

I have a table with multiple rows per member that I would like to convert to 1 row per member. I have a table that looks a bit like this:

10000Frost Bite

And I'd like to convert it to this:
Member_IDDiagnosis - 1Diagnosis - 2Diagnosis - 3Diagnosis - 4
10000 HypothermiaFrost Bite
10001 Fatigue DehydrationExhaustion
99999 Exhaustion Hypothermia

The columns don't line up well but I am looking for each diagnosis to move into one of the 4 columns, depending on whether it is the first, second, third or fourth diagnosis associated with the member.

Queries :: Match Multiple Rows From Same Column

Apr 2, 2014

I have parent-child one to many data in one pair of relationships, and now I've been asked to see be able to find out what matches a defined regimen; each is also defined in a parent-child relationship.

Best is to show sample data. I'm going to show them as two tables, but the "Components" are actually in a parent-child relationship, e.g.,

PersonList -= Meds
Regimen -= Meds as well

Note that PersonList and Regimen do not really have any relation; we just want to see if things are being done one of the ways they are "supposed" to be done, without a slow manual check. It's worked as set up for reports, and I really don't want to change everything to a big long list of fields, one field per med for a lot of reasons (not least of which is that is denormalizing)

Quy 1 Result:
PersList T1Component
Andrew Med 1
Andrew Med 2
Brett Med 1
Brett Med 3
Brett Med 4
Charles Med 2
Duane Med 1
Duane Med 4

Quy 2 Result
Regimen T2Component
Goody1 Med 1
Goody1 Med 3
Goody1 Med 4
Goody2 Med 1
Goody2 Med 2

I'd like to be able to do two queries - one that are "OK" one that are not. Don't need to replicate the med list, just the regimen if matching..

"Good" would return
Person Regimen
Andrew Goody2 (he has med 1, 3, and 4)
Brett Goody1 (he has med 1 and 2)

"Bad" would return

What they "almost match" does not matter; it tells people which ones we need to check into a bit more.

Queries :: Multiple Rows Into 1 And Creating New Columns?

Nov 26, 2014

I have a query which is used to pull data from 2 tables.

1. Only show the records that have 2 or more same Pat#, FName and LName. If it is a single record I would like to hide it.

2. Need to see the different dates amd know the difference.

Currently Query Looks like this.

Pat# FName LName Reason Status Date
00001 John Doe 1 1 11/13/2014 00002 Sally Doe 2 1 11/25/2014
00003 Bill Bates 1 1 11/04/2014
00003 Bill Bates 2 1 11/07/2014
00004 Jenny West 1 1 04/03/2014
00004 Jenny West 2 1 04/10/2014

The Signup reason number 1 represents the signup date and number 2 represents the time they left. SignupStatus number 1 represents a group.

So I am hoping my end goal it would look something like this.

Pat# FName LName Date 1 Date 2 Difference
00003 Bill Bates 11/04/2014 11/07/2014 3 Days
00004 Jenny West 04/03/2014 04/10/2014 7 days

I am trying to avoid using VBA or SQL. I do not know where to input it.

I tried to use the “Find Duplicates” query wizard but this did not work because it finds duplicates like last name first name, but it does not separate the dates.

Queries :: Concatenating Multiple Rows In Access 2010

Feb 11, 2015

I have a query that has multiple IDs and different information in numerous fields. For example:

ID Field1 Field2 Field3
1 x
1 m
1 b

I need to find a way to concatenate the data so that it shows the information like this:

ID Field1 Field2 Field3
1 x m b

I'm working in Access 2010.

Yes I know this isn't the best way to set up a database, but I'm trying to make fixes to an already existing database that I can't go back and change the way it is set up. I can only find work arounds to accomplish what I need.

Queries :: Return Multiple Rows From A Single Record In Database

Jul 16, 2014

For each record in my database, there are observation periods which are recorded in the format dd/mm/yyyy hh:mm:ss, titles as follows

1st Obs Start
1st Obs End
2nd Obs Start
2nd Obs End
3rd Obs Start
3rd Obs End.

I have been asked to create a query that will quickly show how many obervation periods commenced in a particular month. What I am trying to do is create a column that will be named Obs Start, and another, Obs End. For each record ID, this would then show as follows:

ID......Obs Start.............Obs End........
1....[1st Obs Start].....[1st Obs End]....
1....[2nd Obs Start]....[2nd Obs End]....
2....[1st Obs Start].....[1st Obs End]....
2....[2nd Obs Start]....[2nd Obs End]....
2....[3rd Obs Start].....[3rd Obs End]....
3....[1st Obs Start].....[1st Obs End]....
4....[1st Obs Start].....[1st Obs End]....


I could then quickly count how many obs periods started within the desired month.

Queries :: Entries Separated By Commas - Split A Cell Into Multiple Rows

May 7, 2014

I'm a new to Access, SQL. I need the following output:


PHP Code:

PO              Vendor       State
a, b             1,2            IL
c, d, e          3              TX
f                  5              CA 


PHP Code:

PO          Vendor   State
a             1,2        IL
b             1,2        IL
c             3          TX
d             3          TX
e             3          TX
f              5          CA 

I found the following SQL code from another forum, which splits entries in a cell separated by commas into 2 rows, output being:

PHP Code:

PO          Vendor   State
a             1,2        IL
b             1,2        IL
c             3          TX
d,e          3          TX
f              5          CA 

SELECT * INTO ImportedData
SELECT PO, Vendor, State
FROM SourceData

[Code] ....

How to run a loop so that if a cell has n entries separated by commas, I want them to be split into 'n' number of rows.

Queries :: Find Latest Date In A Table Where Dates Are In 2 Separate Columns And Multiple Rows

May 19, 2015

I am trying to find the latest date in a table where the dates are in 2 separate columns and multiple rows. (there are business reasons why there are 2 dates per row they represent different but comparable activities)

I have a table "Assessment tracker" with the following structure

Name Type
Candidate short text
Unit short text
EV1 Date Date
EV2 Date Date

My Data:

Candidate Unit EV1Date EV2 Date
TH1 10 07/05/2015 25/05/15
TH1 10 07/05/2015 07/06/15

I have a query "Candidate AC Dates" that compares the 2 dates EV1 and EV2 and outputs a 3rd column with the latest date.

PARAMETERS [Candidate Name] Value;
SELECT [Assessment Tracker].Candidate, [Assessment Tracker].Unit, [Assessment Tracker].[EV1 Date], [Assessment Tracker].[EV2 Date], Max(MaxDate([Assessment Tracker]![EV1 Date],[Assessment Tracker]![EV2 Date])) AS Achdate
FROM UnitData INNER JOIN [Assessment Tracker] ON UnitData.Unit = [Assessment Tracker].Unit



CandidateUnitEV1 DateEV2 DateAchdate
TH11007/05/2015 25/05/201525/05/2015
TH11007/05/2015 07/06/201507/06/2015

It does this by using a function shamelessly copied from the web somewhere...

Function Maxdate(ParamArray FieldArray() As Variant)
' Declare the two local variables.
Dim I As Integer
Dim currentVal As Date' Set the variable currentVal equal to the array of values.
currentVal = FieldArray(0)
' Cycle through each value from the row to find the largest.


This is working well (I think)

I then want to find the latest date for the 2 records i.e. the Max value for the Achdate.

SELECT [Candidate AC Dates].Candidate AS Expr1, [Candidate AC Dates].Unit AS Expr2, Max([Candidate AC Dates].Achdate) AS MaxOfAchdate
FROM [Candidate AC Dates]
GROUP BY [Candidate AC Dates].Candidate, [Candidate AC Dates].Unit
ORDER BY [Candidate AC Dates].Candidate, [Candidate AC Dates].Unit, Max([Candidate AC Dates].Achdate) DESC;

But this is returning

Candidate Unit MaxOfAchdate
TH1 1025/05/2015

I expect it to return

Candidate UnitMaxOfAchdate
TH1 10 07/06/2015

It looks to me like MAX is considering only the day value rather than the whole date. I suspect this is because it is considering the results of the function in the first query as a short text rather than a date field. (I've tried to force this through declaring the variables as dates but don't know where else to force this. (I am UK based hence the DD/MM/YYYY format)

Combining Multiple Update Queries Into One.

Mar 12, 2007

I have a table with a field called "description"
another field in fame table called "length of cable"
In description field it contains among other things, the length in it . It may be at various locations in the test data in the field. The length may be in the form xft or xxft xx foot xxfeet xx feet..

I have another field that I need to put the length in a standard form like xx feet
(The field will have different units in it later not just feet.)
I am using update query
criteria of Like "*3ft*" Or Like "*3 foot*" Or Like "*3 ft*" Or Like "*3 foot"
with update to (of the length of cable field ) set to 3 Feet
The data has many lengths
and one....

I would like to automate it to one query and hopefully avoid the problem I have when doing it as is, *5ft* also finds 25ft and 15ft incorrectly for the goal of the update. same on 12ft 14ft

' and " are the symbols for inches and feet.
Also some of the data is in the form xx' or xx" I hit a wall on this due to the ' character
need to do the same to that as well.

Any suggestions '''
before I lose any more hair ...

Queries :: How To Conditionally Update Multiple Columns

Mar 29, 2013

I have a databse of bird ringing (banding) which I have turned into an encouter history by using the pivot table capability in MS Access. Example attached.

For each animal, identified by a ring number in column B, there is a set of "encounters" over time. A blank in a date column indicates that the animal was not seen or captures in that year. A number in the column indicates that it was seen or captured n times.

To format these data correctly for subsequent surival probability analysis, I need to replace all of the blanks, in each of the "year" columns with a 0 and anything that isn't blank (e.g. 1, 2 or 3) with 1. So, I need columns F to L to look like C to D.

It was simple enough to do this one column at a time...

UPDATE [Capture history intermediate] SET [Capture history intermediate].[1971] = "0"

WHERE ((([Capture history intermediate].[1971]) Is Null))

But I have a lot of data, spanning 40 years (i.e. 40 columns) and I will probably have to do this conversion many times as I work on sub-sets of my master database.

So, question is, is there a short-cut way to avoid having to create 40 different queries and run each one seperately?

Queries :: Update Command Multiple Tables Using IIF

Aug 10, 2013

I am writing a sql to assign students to each section of a course. The first student would be in the first section and the second student in the second section.

The ClassParam table gives the number of sections for the course and the last period that was assigned.

The Classes table gives the class key number by class name and section number.

The student has the name of class they want to take and I want to move the class section number into the Choice1 field.

The IIF statement seems to work but all of the students are getting the 1st session of the class put into the choice1 field.

UPDATE Students, ClassParam, Classes SET Students.Choice1 = Classes.ClassID,
ClassParam.PeriodAssigned = IIf([ClassParam]![PeriodAssigned]>=[ClassParam]![NumOfSections],1,
WHERE ((([Students]![FirstChoice])=[Classes].[ClassName] And ([Students]![FirstChoice]) Is Not Null And ([Students]![FirstChoice])<>"") AND (([ClassParam]![PeriodAssigned])=[Classes].[SectionNumber]) AND (([Classes]![ClassName])=[ClassParam].[ClassName]) AND ((ClassParam.ClassName)=[Students]![FirstChoice]));

Queries :: Update Multiple Tables From One Form

Feb 10, 2014

I have 2 main tables. One with Data that I get from an outside source and cannot be changed. The other is one that needs to be updated as needed. I have a few look up tables so I can identify the codes with the descriptions. In 2003 I was able to make a big query and link my forms to the query to make modifications. I am not able to edit any information in the 2010 query. The people want it to work the way it did in the past but I am not skilled enough in access to do that. Is there an easy way to use a query when updating the form? I used to be able to edit the query itself and it would feed back into the existing tables.

Queries :: Stakeholder Database - Update Multiple Records At Once

Apr 15, 2015

I am building a stakeholder database in Microsoft access 2010 and I want to be able to say that a stakeholder attended an event. I have managed to do this but I can only say that one stakeholder attended an event at one time. This is quite a problem as there can be up to 800 or even more stakeholders attending an event so to go through and click each one would be very time consuming.

My current set up is I have a stakeholder table an events table and an event attendance table. It all works fine apart from only being to edit one record at a time. I have tried update queries with no success, I can attach the database but would need to remove the data for data protection reasons.

Queries :: Append Multiple Data With Update Query?

Aug 6, 2013

In access Im working with two tables, this is my setup



Both tables are filled with data, Table B contains the same kind of data as table A, But tableA has documentnumbers with different revisions (for example revision a,b,c, for each revision a seperate row). Table B might have an identical document, but just one revision (like revision a).

Now I like to append the data of tableA to tableB, except if a revision is similiar to a revision in table A. (There is more metadata involved, but I will do it step by step)

Im not working with primarykey data, becayse in the end result table B will also have multiple (identical)document numbers with different revisions on different rows.

I tried to use the update query but it doenst append the documentnumbers where the revision is not present in table B I attached a image of the tables.
