I've been trying to make this work for hours and hours and am finally giving up. Most of this code was found on the internet and I've attempted to make it work for my project but I keep getting errors. I use VBA with Excel quite often but never with Access before. Currently I am getting an "Object doesn't support this property or method" error at rs.Findfirst.
I have an excel worksheet that mimics the access table with five fields, an ID field, lastName, FirstName, DeptID (int), Email. I want to search the Access table for a match on the email field, and if it doesn't find the match, to add a new record using values typed into the excel sheet.
Dim cn As Object
Dim rs As Object
I have created a 'price list' database in ACCESS. Then in EXCEL I created a pivot table which retrieves data from one of the database queries (the query was saved as a .dqy file).
I emailed the file containing the pivot table to a colleague who is on the same server. He saved the excel file on he desktop & renamed it. When I update the databse file on a shared public drive on the server, he is able to 'refresh' his desktop file successfully !!
I currently use a function very similar to this one with a SELECT query to return a field to excel. I have modified this into an UPDATE query to update a field.
I am getting errors at this point:
Code: If adoRS.BOF And adoRS.EOF Then DBNoteUpdate = "Value not Found" Else DBNoteUpdate = "Action Confirmation"
I believe this area of code was to trap the error that occurs when the lookup field name was not found in the table. I left it in because I still want to trap if the record I am trying to update is not found in the table.
Here is the full code:
Code: Public Function DBNoteUpdate(RecordNumber As String, _ UpdateTableName As String, _ UpdateNote As String) As Variant Dim adoRS As ADODB.Recordset If adoCN Is Nothing Then SetUpConnection
The code does work, in that the record is being sucessfully updated by the SQL statement, but its erroring at the point I described above with the error:
Code: Runtime Error '3704': Operation is not allowed when the object is closed.
how 'adoRS' is closed at that point because the call to close is right at the end of the function?
I have an access database that runs some excel subs. If the excel sub doesn't meet a certain criteria, I want to close the excel workbook and close the access database. Most google searches yield how to close excel from access but I need closing access from excel. I was thinking that if the "detonate" criteria was met, I could pass a variable over to access and terminate that way....
If x 5 then thisworkbook.close myaccess.accdb.close end if
if x 5 then appAccess.application.run "Self-Detonate" thisworkbook.close end if
I have a CSV that I have a excel macro created to do some formatting and then export the data into Access. that part works. I also have it checking for duplicate entries and skipping them. The problem that i run into is that not all my duplicates are truly duplicate, there have been updates and now i need to update Access. I have 2 fields, my primary key which is what I'm primarily matching on and then I'm checking if its been updated by checking another field "Last Changed" If this field doesn't match then I need to update the record.
At this point I'm trying to use a SQL UPDATE and I now believe that i have it formatted correct but when it gets to a record that needs to be updated I get an error: Run-time error '-2147217887 (80040e21)': The changes you requested to the table were not successful because they would create duplicate values in the index, primary key or relationship. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. the only other thing i could think to do would be to check each field to see if it has changed and just run the query against that but I feel like i would run into the same issue. This is how I'm connecting to Access:
In Excel 2007, I have a tables linked from Access 2007. I frequently delete and import a new set of data into Access, then refresh the Excel file. Most of the time this works, but I've noticed sometimes one column doesn't refresh (even though I can see it in Access). If I modify the field name in the Access query, then refresh the table in Excel the newly named field is added in the in the last column of the table with current data. The column that wasn't refreshing stays the same.
When I originally created the link in Excel, I added various columns with formulas, but do not edit the columns that are imported from Access.
i have a excel file which has a formatted pivot table which displays customers by country in row A 2 down to 36 with approx 36 customers in the values field i have volumes by alarms and tickets along the column labels it shows the previous 7 days with date and then the alarms and tickets in each row. My problem is i am trying to find the code or location where i can change the only bring back 7 days data to another value. i have searched all connection properties and definitions. I know there is a value somewhere that allows you to change this number to say from 7 days to 30 days. If you click on the column labels for date it shows the dates back 3+ years but it still if i tick more than 7 days only show 7 in the table.I have image if needed
I have a database that has outgrown excel (over 77,000 rows now) so i now have it in Access. I want to replicate the following situation I used to have using lookups in excel with a query to the Access database: Paste a list of identifiers into an excel sheet. Values corresponding to the list are returned from the database in adjoining columns. The list can be from 10 to 300 cells long an returns data in 14 columns. I have had a go with the Import external data wizard which generates a query but have not been able to work out how to base the query on a list of cells in excel and have the query return values for each of the identifiers in the list.
30 people in different countries use a sophisticated VBA Excel file on their local PCs, let's call it myexcelfile.xls. This file contains no custom data, as all data is stored in myexcelfile_backup.xls.
The biggest challenge with this set up is that whenever there is a newer release or bugfix of myexcelfile.xls, I need to send it out per email to 30 people and hope they replace it with my updated version.
Note that newer versions can replace older versions without any data loss, as all data is stored in the backup file.
Idea: with tools like WGET or BITSADMIN, I was thinking of creating a batch file, that would simply download the latest version from a FTP server, and replace the older version with the newly downloaded one.
Constraints: I shouldn't be using any software that is not native to Windows 7the files can sit in different folders on these 30 computers, therefore the update mechanism would have to identify the path they are in.the update mechanism would have to close the file first before running the update. Question: What is the best way to go about this? A DOS Batch file? Or another excel file that is just the "updater", meaning, it's only purpose is to download the new file from the web and overwrite the old file?
I have about 180 Excel files (each one with 51 columns and around 30,000 rows) that need to be exported to an Access table.I'm using the routine below which is extremely time-consuming. I'm sure there is a better way to export an excel file to an Access table.
Sub ExportHistData() Dim rst As Object Dim cn As Object Dim i As Long Dim lstCell As Long Application.ScreenUpdating = False lstCell = [a65536].End(xlUp).Row If lstCell = 1 Then Exit Sub
I was looking for some help on a VBA solution. I would like to run an on open event for a scheduling workbook. It should open a logging workbook, write the %username% to the first blank line in A:A then save and close the logging workbook, leaving the scheduling workbook open and ready for input.
The following UNC can be used as the location for the logging workbook....
I have a large text file that is generated daily and want to import into MS Access as the end result.
First I need to reformat into the row format in excel rather than the format it is in. The issue is not all the segments are the same number of lines or they may have mutli message lines. The names with colon : after them I want to be field names in the table which I wish the text file to import into. Please, I am looking for assistance with this.
I have attached sample data of the text dump, and the name of the file is as you see but different date on the end. At the very end of the text file you will see the desired output which I will then import into Access
Also every new message begins with the dotted line and the date and time at the end.
I was trying to move data from excel to access database in VBA. not sure if this has been done before.
What i have got at the moment is that there are some data in excel spreadsheet that i can dump into the table in the access database. My problem here is i need to be able to open the database first, set up connection, and then perform SQL insert query command.
So in the worksheet, i have a button with the following codes in it so far i could just manage to open the database as follows
Is there a way for an excel macro to open a access database & import a txt file straight to access (without importing to excel first) & then executing some other code e.g. copy query results(which i already have code for)
I just wanted to know if there was a way to add the information contained within an excel form into an access database using a macro? What I am looking to do is automatically have the data added when I press a button, or when I close a worksheet.
i am trying to use VBA to query a access database that i have i want to be able to pull the information that matchs either textbox4 or 5 i am using the code below but i am getting global errors.
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click() Dim custname As Variant Dim Custnum As Variant Dim cnn As New ADODB.Connection Dim rst As New ADODB.Recordset custname = Range("TextBox5").Text Custnum = Range("TextBox4").Text With ActiveSheet.QueryTables.Add(Connection:=Array( _ "ODBC;DSN=Insolvency;Description=Insolvency;APP=Microsoft Office XP;DATABASE=Insolvency;Trusted_Connection=YES"), Destination:=Range("Listbox1")) .CommandText = Array("SELECT * FROM POST WHERE Customer_Account_Name=" & custname & " AND Customer_Account_Number = '" & Custnum & "' ORDER BY Customer_Account_Number") .Name = "Insolvency Post Query"..........................
I have an excel database which has some very basic formulas to multiply some numbers then divide them, the number are manually entered into the cells by myself, however I am getting these number from an MS Access DB manually copy and paste so I wondered, can I make excel automatically pull the number from the access database and if so where do I start?
I am using ADO to retrieve records from an MS ACCESS DB in Excel. All my queries work fine but I am having problems with subqueries. My subqueries work fine in ACCESS but when I execute them via ADO I get the following error message:'"The SELECT statement includes a reserved word or an argument name that is misspelled or missing, or the punctuation is incorrect".
with the correct syntax. Alternatively I was thinking of creating a view in ACCESS but that seems not possible.
Sub retrieve_loan_details() Dim Provider As String Dim Source As String Dim sConn As String Dim sSql As String Dim rep_per As Date
Is it possible to "Autocomplete" a Vendors name in an excel cell from an Access Database of vendors and then perform a vlookup from the database for contact name, address, phone, email, etc.... in adjacent cells?
For example if I begin typing "Acc" then I automatically get a list of vendors from my vendor database in Access beginning with Acc to choose from, such as Accent Cabinet, Access Grage Doors, etc...
I have made an invoicing system that when opened reads a record number and also pulls through some data from an excel document on our server. The user then inputs his information and clicks submit and this will write to the excel document updating the invoice no by one for the next invoice the problem is that this is slow as when writing to the excel worksheet it has to open the document update it then close and save the worksheet on the server. I am trying to speed this up by using a access database on the server but I am having trouble trying to work out how to do this as I have never communicated with another type of document. I found some code witch I am trying to modify but It comes up with a 424 error:
Code: Sub Auto_Open() Set conn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection") conn.Provider = "Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0" conn.Open "\TWKKLNGNational Electronics DocumentsWorksorder DatabaseElectronics Notification system.accdb"
I have an excel spread sheet that has a web query where it imports data to Sheet1 from a public website that requires a login I currently navigate from the websites index page where login in is located to my specific table ona different page I import the page and display it live in excel I want to save this data and put it into an access data base so I can go back and see what the numbers are at different point during the day. I want to export only certain cells from Sheet1 into fields in the access data base is this possible or can this all bee done with access?
I'd like my macro (in an Excel 2010 workbook) to copy values from three worksheet cells and append them to an existing Access or SQL database file -- without having to leave my Excel spreadsheet or open any other programs. The database file simply needs to be appended. Keeping a running list. That file isn't being used for anything else, we can set it up however is necessary to do this.
For example, Excel cells A1, A2, and A3. Representing Job Name, Job Number and Job Total.
how make VBA do this(in SIMPLE terms)? Or give me a link of where to look or what to search for? I understand VBA but not Access or SQL.
I'm looking for a complete working example of how to write a single cell to a Access table using a SQL command. More to the point, i'm looking to UPDATE an access table field with a certain record ID with the current contents of a cell. I am using Excel 2003.
I would be most thankful you give you permission to marry my daughter.
I have created a workbook which both imports data from an access database and exports data to same. Some of the data I need to access is dependent on parameters which the user will change in excel e.g. I need to extract PeriodID (ID for a month end date) based on a date in a speified cell in excel.
MS Query is a very handy way to achieve this as the wizards automate almost everything. However, this workbook will be shared on a common drive on a server (as will the database). Initial testing suggests that the connection and queries I'm making on my machine do not work on other people's machines.
What is the best way to achieve the queries in excel which query data from an Access Database, but will work on all machines accessing the sheet from a shared drive? Is there any way I can avoid writing complex VBA code for this? I have an awful lot of specific queries like the one I mentioned above to perform.
I have an excel spreadsheet in which I must sort the data by program and then activity code. From that I need to know the number of consumers by activity code and their total units. I must then graph this by program. I have been debating on whether to use an excel pivot table, break the data in to multiple spreasheets to then graph it or shoud I upload the file into access.
