Adding a Field Updates Multiple Tables

Adding a Field Updates Multiple Tables
Views: 4
I am currently in the process of converting several (25+) Spreadsheet based lists into one Access Database for easier additon/removal of employees.

Each Employee record contains many columns of information, so many that I have had to continue the data on a second table, with a Unique ID Field the link between the two tables. I haveformed a One-One Relationship between the tables using the ID Field.

For use by Supervisors that will be updating certain areas of data, I have created forms that look similar to our old Excel Spreadsheets. I was happy to see that adding a name to theseforms would add the name to the original table, and the same with removing a name.

Now that I have created a second table, I am hoping there is a way that adding a name to any form will add the name to two or more tables. My goal is to have the Supervisors use only theforms to input data, while of the tables that store the information remained hidden so that there are no accidental errors that corrupt the entire database.

Adding multiple data to one field

I would like to be able to have the date written in to a field when another field is updated. Pretty simple, however, there are circumstances that this field could be updated as many as 6 times. I will have to build a query that will search this field for specific dates so I can count them. I need to keep on file each added instance and not just the latest update date. I had thought of using the field being updated and adding Now to it to get a value, and then should there be another update I could simply take the value from the field and the new date (updates will never be done more than once on a given date). Not sure if this is the best idea or if there is a much simpler path

Adding Record to Form that updates the Table

I am an Access rookie. I have built a form and want to make sure that if I add a record in the form that that record also updates the tables/tables.

I have noticed that any edits that I make to existing records are updated in the tables.

Can anyone help. I think it may have something to do with my relationship settings, but I really am not sure

Adding a name to multiple tables

I am trying to decide the best way to setup a new database that I am creating that right now has two main tables in it. Right now the tables are linked by the LNFN field so I can puttogether queries and draw data from both tables.

Is LNFN the best way to link the tables?

How do you add a new name to the database that would show up in both tables or additional tables that I may add?

Import multiple updates for a single record

I have a fixed number of records that will have updates to a single field. The new information is coming from a template sent to multiple users that will only manipulate the records under their jurisdiction from the master list of fixed records.

Each version of the Excel file will always contain the same # of master records with an identical update in one field.

Can't Update Queries linke to SQL Tables

I am in the process of moving all my backend databases from Access to SQL Server. I have upsized all the tables but having problems with my Access Front End. I have several forms based on queries that when run, pull information from three tables. When I had the tables in Access, after running the query I could make changes/updates to the query results.

But now that I have upsized the tables to SQL, I can only view the data. I can't add, delete or make any changes. All my tables have a key field in them.

If I run a query on just one table, then I can make changes/updates

Multiple value check list load from table

We use some multiple value fields where users can check multiple values. Within a new form we want to load the contents of a multiple value field from a tabel (we have made the query for this and get the multiple values) in a new field and use it as a multiple value lookup field.

This does not work.

We get an empty field.

How can we see the selected multiple items from the query in the field on the form(table lookup)?

Get these values from the tables in the database.
Then in another form:
Load these values in a new multiple value field:
See the selected items:

Replacing and Adding Data

I have 4 Excel sheets that feed into 1 database. From there, I have been able to create multiple queries and develop 1 table with data from all 4 sheets. My problem arises when data is updated (new address, open issue changed to closed, etc.) or new entries are added. How can I get my database to search for updates from the queries and correct the old entries while adding the new?

Using 1 Autonumber field for 3 tables

I have three tables which each have their own uniqueID field that I really need to be unique across the three (for union at a later point). Therefore I have created a table which has two fields - an autonumber field and another indicating which table it lives on.

I basically want to work out an efficient way of adding a new record to the autonumber table and adding the number it produces to a new record within its equvalent foreign key.

It needs to be reasonably efficient as around 1000 records will be added at a time on one of the tables, whereas only 1 record will be added at a time on the other two.

Access 2007-10 table lookup, multiple entry

I am kinda new to Access (well I used it back in 2002 my last time) and I am trying to create a simple database. It consist of three tables, one of the tables is used as data lookup to fill the field in another table.

My problem is that this should be a multiple value field which is easy,form or anything that gives me the multiple values separated by a comma in a message box for example
