Append Query- Only Add Records That Don't Exist

Append table query in Access 2003 format using Access 2010
I created a make table query and pulled 201357 records yesterday. Today I ran my append query and came up with 201357 records to be added. I know there were not 201357 records created over night and since the number is the same as the make table query I am a little leery of adding these records to my database.

Does the append query just pull available records and then only add the missing records? Or when the append query says it is going to add 201357 records it is going to add that many records? I don't have a primary key designated if that helps.


Creating an Append Query in Microsoft Access
A Microsoft Access append query adds (appends) records from the database table that you are using to another database table. If you are wanting to append records in a database, the table that you want to append records to must exist. Records can be appended to a table in the current database that you are working in, or into another Microsoft Access database.
Microsoft Access append queries are good for adding data to a different table where the data is based upon a selection criteria. However, append queries are not always the most efficient way of adding records to another database. If you need to add all records and fields from one table to another table, the append query is not the best way to do it. Using Copy and Paste options in this case would be the best solution.


Append if Not Exist
I created the following basic Append query

INSERT INTO tbl_Clients ( ClientName )
SELECT [Tmp_Imp].[Client Name]
FROM [Tmp_Imp]
GROUP BY [Tmp_Imp].[Client Name];

But now I need to add a twist, I need to only append those Clients that do not already exist in the table already. How would I go about this?


Append Query to append fields to other fields
I have a Append Query to append fields to other fields. One of the fields is call Baptism (h1). When I go to run the query it tells me that Baptism(h1) does not exist. When I add a space again between Baptism (h1) the query will work. HoweverI have a command button for the user, and they will not know to adjust the query each time.


Which duplicate?
I want to load 3,00 more records into my database. I know I will be loading some records which already exist in the db.
I usually use an append querry, and set the primary key to to the field that will strip the duplicates.
However my concern is that many of my exisitng records have many notes. When I do an append query, how do I know which dups will be deleted, obviously I dont want to delete the existing records, that contain notes


Append Query with two distinct criteria
I have an append query that uploads external data into a table. It is currently set up for 1 distinct criteria, ie, the CAN number of hardware does not already exist. I've done this byadding the CAN field in again at the end of the append query and use Is Null to filter.

However, I now need to create another table that could allow for duplicate CAN additions depending on the lifecycle of this hardware and therefore need to add a 2nd criteria to stop duplicate uploads.

Therefore, is it possible to have 2 criteria that if both are met, do not append the record, but if only 1 is met, will append the record?

The other field I'm using will be the date the account was flashed. So, what I need to have is where CAN + Date are matched, ignore record, if CAN or Date are matched, add record and ofcourse if neither exist, add record.

Is it as simple as adding in a 2nd field using Is Null for date as well or would this not work?


Quick question about Append Query
Just want to confirm what I am thinking is correct.

I've ran an Append Query to select certain fields from the old DB to add it into the preformatted table in the new DB. This preformatted table is based on the table from the old DB but it has slightly different fields.

The Append Query seemed successfull so far. So now my new DB's table data mirrors the old one.

However, the old DB is still live at the moment but is due to be taken down soon so I will need to run a query to constantly update the data in the new DB in the mean time.

Let's say during this time the user adds a few new records in the old DB and modify some information on the older records in the old DB. What query should I run to correctly mirror this on my new DB's table?

As I understand it Append Query will only add new records so it won't go through the old records?

Should I just wait until the last minute, clear all data in my new table and run the Append Query once


Append Query to append records one db to another
I am wanting to use an Append Query to append records from one database to another. I am having problem with deciding on criteria to append only the records that haven't already beenappended to the second database table.

I will be opening the append query sometime in the form frmIssueNew. I only need to Append the records that have a JobID of 22, and haven't already been appended.


unable to append... key violation... message box
Is there anyway that I can suppress / disable query warning messages about not being able to append all data asking if you want to continue even if ## records were lost to key violations.

I want the query to execute and add the records it can regardless and I don't want the user responding to message boxes


Add records to a table by using an append query
This article explains how to create and run an append query. You use an append query when you need to add new records to an existing table by using data from other sources.
If you need to change data in an existing set of records, such as updating the value of a field, you can use an update query. If you need to make a new table from a selection of data, or to merge two tables into one new table, you can use a make-table query.


Append Queries
I have a question concerning append queries. I would like to append new records into TableA from TableB without creating any duplicate records in TableA.

I am using a standard Select Query to query data from TableB and then swith to append query to add the data to TableA. This method will copy over all the data, even if it is already present in TableA. I need to filter it somehow to not include redundant data.

The reason I am doing this is because I have a table that cannot be modified by me, and I need to copy that data to a new table to add more fields. I need this table to automatically update when the old table is updated. I think an append query could manage this, but, if there is a more elegant solution, I would be pleased to know


An integrated Append + Update query ?!
I have a linked table in my DB, and I have created Append and Update queries for both inserting new records , and for updating existing ones.

but since there are many linked tables in my DB, I am realizing this way of doing this to be a pain, really.

my question is that is it possible and how can I do both the Append and Update actions in just one query or something like that , so that I don't have to create an Append query for each table, and then redo the steps for another update query and have to run the two queries for each table when I have some new (and updated) records to be written to my tables.


Troubleshoot Append Query Errors
I am creating new tables using a select query and then an append query. The select query to is to eliminate duplicate records before appending. However when I run the append query I get a dialog box indicating that 9 of records cannot be appended due to errors.

Is there any way to get access to tell me which records these 9 are? I know I can figure it out, but it would be nice to see what records or what step of the process creates the error.


Why can't I append some records?
When you execute an append query, you may see a dialog giving reasons why some records were not inserted. List of reasons why a Microsoft Access append query fails to append all records.


Access can't append all the records in the append query
I get the following error when I try to save data using append query for the save button in the form.
"Microsoft Office Access can't append all the records in the append query"

Here is some detail:
....
Now in all the three append queries there is a field named "SCNJCounter" which has autonumber datatype in table and is primary key field with no duplicate value.
When I click save button on the form it says ok . But the record I saved is not there in the following table and when I checked datasheet view in query is shows new record with same SCNJCounter value.

When I try to run the query it returns the error above.I know records are not saved in table because SCNJCounter is not incrementing but don't get why.

Append Query to append to a table in different database
I have 10 databases, each with the exact same query. I am needing to compile this data into excel for a vendor. I was thinking instead of having one massive spreadsheet with 10 individual queries, to run an append query in 9 of those databases and append all records to one "master" table and then from that table run one query!

My problem, I do not know how to append records to a table in a different database. Can someone please explain how to do this?

Also, if this is a crazy thought that I have, and there is an easier way to do what I need to accomplish let me know that as well.

Append only new records
I am building a database and it requires duplicating some data (not my choice) but here is my problem. I have a main form with 3 tabbed subforms linked to the main. One of the tabs is for sales rep entering, one for billing and commission, and one for amortizing rev. The "Amortization" table uses a lot of the information entered in the sales rep table and I have been using an append query with the warnings turned off (i know its wrong to do) to append the necessary data. However, as the database grows it takes a long time for the append query to run.

Can someone please instruct me or possibly write me the code to append only new records if I add an appended yes/no box to the sales rep table
