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

Record too large error
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.


Processing a very large recordset
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).

Access 2010 function
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


Four Things to Love About Microsoft Access 2007
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.


Record is too large. (Error 3047).
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?


Record Changes Confirmation in 2007
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?.


Access 2007 releasing saved records
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


Object descriptions - Access 2010
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.

Compare a Field to a Field in a Prior Record with Large Datasets
Referencing this example from Microsoft Support:

ACC2000: How to Compare a Field to a Field in a Prior Record

This example works with the limited dataset provided but if a new dataset is created which is much larger it randomly deletes, or doesn't delete, a record(s).

Does anyone have any experience using this type of querying within a query using large datasets and/or why it is causing this problem.

Attached is the example from Microsoft support with the added table and query that simulates a "large" dataset


Too much data for Access 2007????
I am very new to Access and databases in general. My question is: is it possible to have too much data for Access 2007 to handle?

Here is the scenario: My company uses an EXTREMELY large database, millions of lines of data. We employ admins who perform all of their queries, reports, etc. using an SQL Server. I am not an admin, but have been tasked with writing queries and reports for my work group using Access 2007. I have been able to perform simple queries, but when I try something very complex, Access just runs and runs for up to hours ata time without ever timing out or returning any data. I have supplied my SQL statement to the admins for quality check and testing. They are able to run my queries in the SQL server in less than thirty minutes. Am I asking too much of Access 2007?

Trying to "automate" inserting record numbers in Access 2010 query
I have successfully created queries involving a 10 or so record numbers in a large database. I now need to create a query made up of 170+ record numbers per year for 15 years.

in some way, import the record numbers from Excel to Access? Otherwise, I will have to type or paste the 170+ record numbers for each year.


Update Query - Record is too large
I am trying to update (2) fields from a temp table to a master table. Both fields are defined as memo, with unicode compression as No. I tried it as Yes as well but get the same error 'record is too large'. Do you have any suggestions to try?

I checked the field lengths on characters for the (2) fields and there is nothing over 255.


Save Query
I'm dealing one very large files coming from Access and processed in Excel.

I'm experimenting and trying to find out if I am better off to call an external file, when in Excel. Working with the pivot table.

Right now my biggest problem is having a quarry set up in Access 2007and saving it. When I'm in Excel 2007 I want the ability to be able to access an external file that was created by my query in Access 2007.

Compact and Repair in Access 2010 resets autonumbers resulting in duplicate records.
I recently created problems in an Access 2010 application by compacting and repairing the backend database. We started getting error messages that the application couldn't add a new record because of duplicate keys.

I've been told by a developer who has encountered this probem that Access 2010 resets autonumber fields if a database is compacted and there's no fix for this bug.

I have a client with a very large, complex Access 2007 application and database who wants to upgrade to 2010. All the data tables use autonumbers for table keys. I've researched this problem and there are many postings about problems with autonumbers after compacting and repairing a database, but most of these article attribute the problem to very specific combination ofthings.

My question is this: Does Access 2010 reset autonumber fields that are used as key fields for tables? If this is the case, is there a hotfix for this problem? My client wants to upgrade to 2010 because the application runs rather slowly in 2007.

But we compact the back end on a regular basis. I've read Allen Browne's article about fixing autonumber fields but this isn't a practical solution for a large application with dozens of tables.
