Add New Record - Update Query

An update query on current recordset
I need to enter a record into the table, check for a duplicate record before update and if one is located; I need an update query to run on the new record I am entering via the form.

The code checks for the duplicate and displays the warning message fine, my disconnect is with the update query. I can't seem to get it to select the current record set.


Different actions for Insert and Update
I'm probably having a really blonde day, but I'm trying to get set a form to run one bit of code if I update a record in a table & a slightly different bit if I add a new record.

I've added msgbox's to test the code & if I update a record, only the 'After Update' code runs but if I add a new record, the 'After Update' code runs & then the 'After Insert'. I'm trying to think of a way to make it distinguish between an update & a new record so I can stop the 'After Update' event happening for new records. Coming up blank at the moment.

Is there a trigger? -am I just being really blonde & missing it


Update data by using a query
This article describes how to create and run an update query. You use an update query when you have to update or change existing data in a set of records.
You cannot use an update query to add new records to a database, or to delete entire records from a database. To add new records to a database you use an append query, and to delete whole records from a database you use a delete query.

Update Field list in Table with Query
Is it possible to update the field listing of a table based on the data stored in another table.

I am building something that involves shares and stocks. When I purchase another stock - I would record the details of the stock in Table 1 then I would like it to be able to add a new field in Table 2 where I can record the daily closing price.

The closest I can find is an update query, but that only updates values in a table, not the actual table itself


Adding a single new record using multiple forms
I want to create a database that will add new records individually but there are so many attributes that I needed to use 5 different forms rather than one very large form. I am having trouble having the 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th forms add the new values to the existing row.

Right now I have an EMPLOYEE table where a new employee is added. The next forms add information but I need them to update the existing row using the unique ID number that an AutoNumber.

I want the second form to access the record that was created with my first form. Can I have an Update Query that automatically edits the most recent record added?

anyway I have a button (on a form) and using the wizard have got it to add a new record
and have a seperate update query for something and thought itd be handy if the button could run that query as well, so immediately thought of macros and just to have the button run the macro
so gone to make a macro and got it to run the query easy, only thing I havent seen in the things that the macro will do is add a new record
does anyone know how to make the macro add a new record?
not too experienced with macros as im sure you can tell


passing an input from one query to a subsequent docmd.OpenForm
I have an update query which takes information from a record in one table and creates a record in another table, updating this new record with data from the first record. Having created this new record, I want to show it to the user. I have a form that prompts for the user's name and displays that record.

Now, the update query already prompts for the name field and so I would like to avoid having to force the user to enter that name again when, after having created the new record, I want toshow them the recreated record for their review.


add record with data from form and VBA ??
I can figure out a work around but would prefer to learn how to handle this correctly.

I want to add a new record through a form and when the user has completed the fields they can click on the Add command button. When this happens I would like to add data to two fields not included on the form.

I want to add the current date and also a status of "Ready" to another field. This would happen without user interaction but when the record is being added.

I have tried an update tablename and set field value but could not get the syntax correctly or something because I kept getting an error.

For this example let's say the table is TableName and the date field is AddDate and the status field is Status.

I also want to add code to the command button that saves the record and then closes. I have that code that works but should I update the two fields before saving therecord or use the save record command first and then update the two fields ?


How to get a new record the second time
I have a subform, with Allow Additions = Yes, that have three fields in datasheet view. To add a new record just click on the blank fields and type it in. There is * symbol at the far left and it changes to a pencil symbol after you start entering data in this record. The only way I can add another new record is to move to different form record or subform record. What my idea is after the third field is populated use an event, like After Update, to run vba code to somehow add a new blank record. Im unable to figure out what that should be


update query from a query ?
I am rubbish at access but seem to be pushed into it on many occassions as I am able to turn a computer on.

How would I update the contents of one record in a table to another record in the same table. Before you rush a reply and say an update query ( if thats what you were going to say ), please read on

I have a table that has 2 pieces of information that I need to merge. The problem is eg (client id number 1, report number 1) has information in it and (client id number one report number 2) would like to have that informatiion. I have set up querys for [Master report] which filters report 1 and another [master update] which filters report 2. I have tried to run an update query on [master report] to influence [master update] but it does not seem to work, at best it warns me its going to update but does nothing. Im now guessing that I cannot update 1 query from another. disregarding queries as Im not sure im on the right track anyway, how would you guys do this ?. Im running access 2010 office


Running an Update Query from Excel
I’ve done a whole load of searching and come to a dead end regarding running an Update Query from Excel.

I have 35 fields in my Update Query, with each one having an ‘IIf’ formula. My Excel sheet if populated using SQl linked to Access. I then add figures required and run the Update query.

I would ideally like run some VBA that runs the Update Query. But it seams so complicated.


Update query sometimes failed
members

I have a FormA with record source from a TableA link to another. On clicking a command button, the codes update the changes in the form to TableA. Continuing on the codes then issue an UpDate Query to update some fields on the same TableA.

For some unknown reasons, the update fail at times, not frequent though. All this happen in a multi-user environment wherein Users can be opening various instance of FormA each on different record I presume.

Any insight to this; I hope.


Why doesn't the table & Query update?
If I add a new record to a form, shouldn't all tables and queries update as well


Update Query on all records but the current
I want to make my update query work on all the records but my current record because I get the error that another user is changing the record in my form. I have a check box that is firing the update query. How do I change my query so I affect all the records but not the current one


Expression builder: update query
I'm using a simple update query on a command button. It just updates a field "A" in the relevant table, to a combination of 3 fields with "&" joining them, no problem here.

This works perfectly except for the current record or rather last record which I've just added in the form! This field "A" remains blank until I exit the DB and return then run thequery again at which point it populates it correctly.

Ideally I want the query to update just the latest record. does anyone have a solution as to how to 'build' the 'criteria' (I assume the criteria is the best method?) or at least have asolution to update the active record?


Update a table field based on other table
Maybe this threat is already discussed but I can't find any answer that fits on me.
So, let me explain you what I need.

I have a table A and a table B.
The tables has the following fields:
Table A (RegistID, ., Pend)
Table B (PendID, RegistID, Pending, Date Pending)

Table A (RegistID) ---- 1 to many ---- Table B (RegistID)

I have a form where I can add data into Table A. In this form I have a button where I call a second form where I can add data into Table B. Each record on table A has many records related on table B.
Each time I add a record in table B (Pending), I need to update my table A (Pend) with last Pending state from table B.

I've tried make using "SetValue" on Pending record on AfterUpdate Event, but no success.
I've tried using an Update Query based on RegistID, but only updates the first match for RegistID.


How to update data in a query
One part of my database is used to keep track of contacts within clients. I created a query using a table and a crosstab query and exported it to excel. I had staff in my office update the contact information.

Now I want to update the query with the new information from the excel spreadsheet. The spreadsheet includes updates to existing data and new record.

How can I do this? It does not look like an update or apend query are what I am looking for.
