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 have an access database that has many queries and in order to speed it up I have a Macro in access that runs it in no time, but I need to be able to run the query in access via a trigger in Excel and have come up with the below, but it's not working.
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:
I am attempting to run a MS Ecel macro that is stored on a MS Excel shared file in a MS Ecel target file (locally stored on my C drive) from a VBA module in Ms Access. That is, from a code i want to open the .xls file that houses the macro, and then open the .xls file that i want to run the file in, and then run the macro.
Here is my situation: the file that houses the macro has the workbook hidden and causes in error.
if i unhide the workbook i get a Run-Time Error 91...object variable or With block variable not set.
if i hide the workbook the vba coding can't find the macro...run time error 1004
once again, i currently have an excel file that houses macro whose workbook is hidden.
I am trying to prepare macro to navigate web page and click on some tasks to complete it. As this web link is not access-able from outside or remotely. I am trying to work on it in bits. I have came across with a first problem of clicking on one of the link of this web page, below is the web page html source code. I want to click on last link "Total Outstanding Tasks".
There are many examples and aspects to compare these 2 products but I just want to point one little difference which is quite crucial and interesting.
Generally if you use small amount of data - 1 Worksheet / 5000 rows / 20 columns you can use Excel without bothering about the execution time, queries and work fast and convenient with it.
The point on Excel is that in 1 Column/Row you can differently Format the data(cells). For example - format as Number or Hour the cells in Column B depending on the data in other columns. That saves you from making 2 Columns - one for Numbers and another one for Hours. This helps you to save 1 of the columns when the data structure in other column is the same.
In Access (and generally all SQL DBs) this is not possible.
I am trying to access another program via Excel VBA. The idea is that, we fill out out time and attendance sheets for work on excel workbooks. But, we have to go into a terminal program to enter this information so it can be uploaded to whereever it goes.
I am able to get the Shell command to work. But, it will be riddled with sendkeys commands and application.wait. I am sure that this is not the best way to program something like this. I believe I read that for this to work that it has to be COM compliant. I don't know. The program is a Java based terminal program.
This works for me
Code: ShellExecute 1, "Open", "C:UsersPublic******lib***_core.jar" But this does not
Code: CreateObject "C:UsersPublic******lib***_core.jar" It gives me a Run-time error 429, ActiveX component can't create object.
I'm running an Excel program such that the user inputs a variable. The program opens an Access database which is linked to the Excel sheet where the variable is stored. Access then runs macros containing queries based on that variable. I've noticed that the link to Excel is slowing performance and I'd like to speed things up, some code that would allow me to plug the variable into Access for use in the query without having to link to the Excel workbook.
This is a piece of the code I use in Excel which runs the Access macro:
Code: For iter = 1 To bottom_row - 1 If IsEmpty(MyMacro(iter)) = False Then Set AccessApp = CreateObject("Access.Application") With AccessApp
Everything works well as-is; it's just slower than I'd like. Due to other constraints I'd rather not go into here, I really am forced to use this kind of Excel/Access interaction. In other words, the user must use Excel to run an Access query.
I am trying to import database records into Excel, but i keep getting an error "run-time error 424" on the code below.
It is probably something simple, but i havent tried importing from Access to Excel before.
The code below should clear the data from "Existing" and then copy the data from test.mdb into the same sheet.
The error occurs when opening "Data Source"
Code: Private Sub Workbook_Open() Dim cnn As New ADODB.Connection Dim rst As New ADODB.Recordset Dim dbCommand As New ADODB.Command RowCount = Worksheets("Existing").Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row Worksheets("Existing").Range("A2:V" & RowCount).ClearContents
I am trying to open an access database from excel by clicking a button. I have assigned the following script and modified it for my own use as according to the microsoft kb.
Private Sub CommandButton2_Click() 'Opens Microsoft Access and the file nwind.mdb Shell ("c:Program FilesMicrosoft OfficeOFFICE11MSACCESS.exe T:TSD - UKProjectsSteve's ProjectsT3FCRs.mdb") 'Initiates a DDE channel to Microsoft Access Chan = DDEInitiate("MSACCESS", "system") 'Activates Microsoft Access Application.ActivateMicrosoftApp xlMicrosoftAccess 'Runs the macro "Sample AutoExec" from the NWIND.MDB file Application.DDEExecute Chan, "ImportData"...........
I have an acess database where I export the data into a blank excel workbook and then copy and paste the data into a report file. My goal is to automate this process and my first thought was to add a button into the access database and have it export to an excel template, but using/editing the access database is not an option, so, that leaves me thinking about automating this process from excel. Is it possible to export data from an access database into cell A1 of a tab?
I have created one Info path solution to gather information from different locations to one hidden Access database. And in last month or two I already have more than 30 000 entries in database. On other side I have created 2 excel workbooks, one for purpose of report that has all connection done through VBA, user just opens it, clicks button and gets report and one workbook that is for other set of users so they can change 2 specific columns of data, everything else is locked. When one department fills value it should fill based on gathered information, and clicks save that cell or cells are being locked.
At first I did on worksheet change event, when user changes a cell (enters information) it triggers worksheet_change event and saves that value in database and colours cell green. But, then users start complaining that when they use copy paste or the use fill paste option (just pull value from one cell to others) it does not save value. Ok ... that is because worksheet_change event does not trigger in situation when copy paste in any form occurs.
So how to solve it ... when pulling data in excel I pull identical table (data) in other hidden worksheet. When they change what they need to change, they click button "save to database" i have created and there is a macro that makes other sheet visible, goes through the records and saves where cell value in table that is being entered is different then same cell in hidden table.
Problem is that sometimes my code works without a problem and sometimes they get an error. I cannot figure out when. When a lot of users use that excel file, for some users it is a read only file, and as I presume that is ok, because macro works in any case and data are stores in database so excel file itself does not have to be saved.
I know that I can import data from access into excel. What I am looking for is a way to have the data linked so that any time that a change is made in access, that change will be reflected on my Excel worksheet.
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 have the below code that will do a data dump of an access table into excel based on an SQL query, is there a way to do a select statement that can match against the data in column C on the spreadsheet.
"Select * From Bsmart where Serial_Number = ##[EXCEL COLUMN C1:Lastrow]##
Code: Dim bkNew As Workbook Dim cnt As ADODB.Connection Dim rst As ADODB.Recordset Dim stCon As String Dim SQl1, SQL2, SQL3, SQL4, SQL5, varSQl As String
I am creating a Payroll Database. It is nearly complete except for the federal and state withholding tax data. I want my db to look up the data which I have saved in an excel workbook. I need the lookup to be for marital status and # of exemptions. There are a total of two variables for each table. 1. How much the gross pay is (ex. between $175-185) and # of exemptions (ex. 3 exemptions).
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 want to transfer data from excel to access using vba, where 1) I have excel sheet with Header at top row and some data below it. 2) Once I run my macro access table will get created and My excel header row will be my access field names and data will be accordingly.
I am doing data entry spreadsheet here where the information gets manually input into a spreadsheet and then when the user clicks a button, it transfers it to a the Access database.
This was done by my predecessor but i had to modify it which has now given me a "Run-time error '3061', Too few parameters. Expected 1".
My code is below:
Private Sub SaveandExport_Click() Dim db As Access.Application Dim TB As DAO.Database Dim Intro As String Dim Tabelle, GName, VarList, TaName Dim i As Integer Set db = CreateObject("Access.Application") ' create Access object
