2007 Access - Record too large
I have a database that currently is 300M. Periodically, I get a Record is too large error. The information I have seen on the web generally say that the limit for a row is 2K, limit for a column is 255 (change to Memo). However, when I get the error (visual basic program), I compact and repair the data base and rerun the same process that caused the error and the problem does not recur. So it seems it is none of the above problems
Thank you for taking the time to report an issue.
What's wrong... Please write below.
Can someone help me with an issue? This module is used to import data from serveral spreedsheet. Using access 2007. I'm receiving an error saying "procedure too large"! Any Help would be appreciated Please!
I am inserting a record whose length is greater than 2000 characters, its giving error Record too large.I googled, found out that Ms Access allows only 2000 characters in a record.
The work around was to normalize the table, but I need a workaround where we should not divide the table.
I used to have a macro that calcultated fields in a form of an application Ive made on ACCESS 2003, from the first to the last record. When I tried it on a computer with ACCESS 2007 the macro doesnt stop. I dont know how to order the macro to stop when it reaches the last record in ACCESS 2007. Can somebody help me, please?
I have 4.2 Million records in a table that I need to process through 1 record at a time. I will only need to move forward through the records one time and perform calculations on and update each record. Using Access 2003 all tables are native Access.
Can I or should I process all records and then update in batch? What is the best method?
After reading other posts I assume I should use DAO instead of ADO.
Any other suggestions for quickest possible way to process this would be helpful.
A little more information. as this large table(table A) is processing I also write records to another table(table b) based on the results of the large tables(table a) records.
aproximately every 400 records I also have to pull some data from another table(table C) based on some parameters aquired from the large (table A).
In Access 2000,2002,2003 it was possible to inhibit the conformation of record changes, action queries and document deletions under the Tools, Options, Edit/Find tab. I have searched but cannot find where in Access 2007 this can be done. Databases created in Access 2003 and opened in Access 2007 suddenly require confirmation of record deletions , which is annoying. Has anyone a solution tho this problem please?.
I'm using a popup form to enter data in MS Access 2007. If I hit the save button to save the record and then attempt to edit a field, I get the message.
Another user editied this record and aved the changes before you attempted to save your changese.
I have code on the Form_BeforeUpdate that sets some fields on the form. If I remark these out, I do not get this error.
I'm using a form master that I have used for years to create forms. I have similiar forms updated from Access 2003 in the same Access 2007 database with the same code that work great.
I appears the Access 2007 saves the record before it can execute all the code in the Form_BeforeUpdate. I have seen some goofies like this in other events in MS Access 2007.
Tell me I'm not crazy. But if you have a solution
For many years now, Microsoft Access has been one of the most popular of all desktop database programs. Along with its bigger cousin, Microsoft SQL, Microsoft Access has helped form the core of database development for many small, medium and large businesses, and with the new version, Microsoft Access 2007, on the horizon it is important for workers to learn about the new features and benefits of this new program.
Those who have been using Access 2000, Access XP or Access 2003 will recognize much of the interface of Microsoft Access 2007, but there are some notable differences, and a new look as well. It is important for those considering upgrading to the new version to understand the unique features and benefits of the 2007 version of Microsoft Access.
Does anybody have an option or workaround for the "GoTo Field box" function that was in Access XP/2003 and dropped in 2007/2010? I work for a large international consulting firm and not having this ability in Access 2010 is making our migration efforts even more difficult. We work with some very large Access tables with many fields per table
I am creating a Access 2007 db based on a questionnaire with long text answers. I received this message and managed to delete the offending record and change some of the text fields to memo fields.
I have received the error again, but I am a bit stuck this time. It looks like a number of my records are too large and unfortunately they have child records, so I can't just delete them. I can't change the records as I just get the same message again and I can't change more text fields to memo fields as I get the same message.
Is there any way round this? Would it help to split the main table into 2 smaller tables?
I'm working on a large documentation project. I inherited several large Access db's (created in 2007, upscaled to 2010 prior to my inheriting them) and I need to print out each object and its associated description. I thought I could query one of the system tables to obtain this but I don't see this info stored there. Was wondering if there was a way to do this with VBA? Did several searches here on this site (as well as a few others and Google) but did not see anything of note.
