Create query to insert and update records from link table into new table

I am running a query that fetches data(records) form a linked table from another database.
I created this piece of code that queries the data from the linked table into a new table, like this:

INSERT INTO NEW_TBL(ENT_CUS_NUM, ENT_FIRST_NAME, ENT_LAST_NAME, ENT_ADDRESS1, ENT_CITY, ENT_STATE, ENT_ZIP, ENT_PHONE)
SELECT LINK_TBL.CUS_NUM, LINK_TBL.FIRST_NAME, LINK_TBL.LAST_NAME, LINK_TBL.ADDRESS1, LINK_TBL.CITY, LINK_TBL.STATE, LINK_TBL.ZIP, LINK_TBL.PHONE FROM LINK_TBL

Is it possible to create a query that inserts new records from the link table initially into the local table, and continuously add new records to the local table as they become available in the Link table and update existent records in the local table that have been modified in the link table?

Example: Lets say a person changes their address, Can I update or bring over only their address without re-inserting their entire record because of an address change

How to create a query which updates a table?
my problem is that I want to create a query and then have a table which effectively always shows the results of the query. The reason for this is I want to access the results from another application, and this application can only read tables, not queries.

I tried a combination of an update query to amend records which have changed and a delete query to delete records for projects which have been marked as cancelled in the source table, but I can't find out how to create an amend query which only adds records that aren't already in the destination table.

The alternative is to use a create table query. but when I run this and it replaces the destination table with a new one, it also breaks the link between the access database at the third-party application, which renders the document in that application corrupt, meaning I have to create it again from scratch


INSERT with SELECT query.
I have a SELECT query whose results I need to INSERT into another table. Currently I have made the query an Insert query but this makes testing and development difficult. Most times I just need to browse the records returned without inserting them as they already exist in the target table.

I have kept a separate copy of the query as SELECT but keeping them both updated is also demanding.

Is it possible to use an INSERT statement with Currentdb.Execute and pass the SELECT query as an argument/parameter instead of individual records?

Insert Multiple Records into a Table
Can I insert multiple records into a table using "INSERT INTO"., it seems it can insert only one record at one time.

INSERT INTO Table1 (F1, F2, F3, F4) VALUES ( 'CCP', 0.0115, 0.008202, 120)

Is there an alternate way to insert multiple records in MS Access Table using a query.


Catching record id in a form
I have a INSERT INTO query to upload and download a table between a local access table and a online sql server table and a UPDATE query to do the same. I have this connected to a button in a form.

My issue is instead of doing the INSERT INTO and UPDATE queries for all the records in the table I would like to have a WHERE condition for my current record ID in my form (the ID being the primary key), so only the one record in a form is altered and passed between the local access table and the online sql server table.

So how do I catch the record ID of one row in the form and pass it as an arguement for the WHERE condition in my INSERT INTO and UPDATE queries. I want to do this via a button in the form


Assign Values Automatically & Insert Records From Queries
I have queries to run records which do not match from 2 tables. These 2 tables are not related.

1. The records are considered closed orders so how do I get MS Access to update the status field in my Master Table as "Closed" automatically.

2. There are records that are new orders and I want to insert them into my Master Table for more monitoring. How do I insert these records that are ran from a query then?


Create a make table query
The information in this article explains how to create and run a make table query. You use a make table query when you need to copy the data in a table or archive data.
If you need to change or update part of the data in an existing set of records, such as one or more fields, you can use an update query.
If you need to add records (rows) to an existing table, you use an append query.
What do you want to do?
* Understand make table queries
* Create a make table query
* Learn more about query criteria and expressions
* Stop Disabled mode from blocking a query


Return records not updated by update query
Forgive me if this question has been asked before but I tried a search in the forum and it didn't seem to work very well.

I have 2 tables, each with a few thousand records. I enter values in fields in table one and it calculates some of the other fields.

I then run an update query and update the records in table 2 based on the calculated fields from table 1.

The update query shows me how many records were updated in table 2 but I would like to be able to generate a list of all the records that weren't changed through the update query. Is that list tracked anywhere in Access or is it something I need to write a VBA procedure to accomplish?


Update Query not updating selected table
I have created an update query to update a master file. When I run the select query to view the records I need to update - I see the correct data. When I change query to update query and enter the table to update and run update query. The query is updating the source table (Change Form) instead of table indicated (AMT Per MAS) to update to.Strange. I am using Access 2003
Below is the SQL:


Updating Records in Microsoft Access with an Update Query
A situation may arise where we need to update many records in a database table when certain information changes or needs to be modified.
A Microsoft Access Update Query updates specified values in a table for all records or for those records that match a specified criteria.
It is possible to update records manually in a database table, either via a form or through the tables datasheet, however this may take a very long time. Changing records manually is not only time consuming, it is also inefficient, and lends itself to errors as you update the records.
The best way to handle this type of event, the updating of many records in a database table, is to use an Update Query to make the changes to data in one operation. You will save yourself time, and eliminate the possibility of manual errors.


update vs. delete / insert
I have a table with only 1 record (and it will always have only 1 record.)
I'm looking for a method of updating the record's values by replacing them with the new values from a record in a second table (with many records). The record selected from the second table would be based on a option that the user selects on a form.

Currently, I have a delete and insert set of statements; however, a form which has this table as its record source is visible thru the process (of delete and insert) and I am able to get the form to requery to the new values (it seems to be getting lost during that perioid when the table has no record ?)

I had a thought that rather than delete / insert, I could use an update statement instead (?)
Q. Is there a way to use a wild card so that all of the fields in the record are upddated with values in the second table? (both tables have identical fields.)
Something like: UPDATE tbl1stTable SET * = * where <.&gt


An INSERT INTO query cannot contain multi-valued field.
I have table on sharepoint which I can not link to my access database so I have to import it. table on sharepoint is same as in access and I need table from sharepoint updated with my access.

unfortunately this table has multi valued fields. when I import table from sharepoint it, the table gets renamed so if the original table is tablea the imported table becomes tablea1.

I'm trying to update my table in access but then I get error "An INSERT INTO query cannot contain multi-valued field." if I remove multi valued fields from query, the query is working fine.

does anyone have any ideas how I can get the values into my table in access?


How to update table if linked to text file
How does one link to test files in such a way that when used in a query with an internal table I can update data in that table?
Example: Say I have an ever-changing list of clients in an text file with a client ID (CID) and name which I link to in order to look up the clients name. I also have a table in the Db which has orders that has, among other fields a foreign key for CID. Now if I create a query for current order and try to link to the data in the text file my query and forms based on it are not updatable.


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.

checking whether the increased number of entries after I added a new
I have a table with 10 records.I have a problem because if I add new record (11) in table, record update a row not increase the row, the number of all records. After "insert" record count of table remain the same 10 record.
If I insert 200 records the number of records in table still the same 10 records.is a bug whatever doesn't matter.
So.help me to verifying if count of records change after I insert new one records. warn with messages the operator that is a problem and must call me to resolv.

I use dcount for current records but I don't know how compare curent record with past record. and if the same.warn.is a bug is a bug ) and I use access


INSERT INTO and UPDATE to multiple tables
I have a local access db that I use for exporting/importing and updating to a online sql server db.
I have used INSERT INTO and UPDATE to accomplish this in a single table. But what if I have two tables with a FK in the second table, is there any way of exporting/importing and doing update to several tables in one singel query? Or do I need several quries, one for each table


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.


How do I update my table with an excel spreadsheet?
I would like to know how to import an excel spreadsheet into my existing database to just update the records. I don't want to add any records at the end or link the sheet to the table.
I also don't want to just copy and paste as I don't want my users to have access to the main table but they will need to have the facility to upload.

The reason for this is we have to send clients a copy of their relevant section of the table in a spreadsheet that matches the table format exactly and contains the correct ID numbers. They then send the spreadsheets back to us completed and I would like to update the fields of the existing records using the ID numbers.

I'm pretty sure its a case of using an update query but I have very little knowledge of coding so any help on this would be great
