Duplicate info in tables Best Practice
Initially, I was thinking of creating a relationship between the two tables in order to pull the date from there. But this table will not always be filled out depending on the employee class.
So, I was thinking of just adding the field rather than creating a relationship as I don't always need the info in that table.
I am wondering before I go and add the extra work, would this be the most efficient way of doing this?
Thank you for taking the time to report an issue.
What's wrong... Please write below.
I have a query that pulls certain information from each field an of course the primary keys are linked and that’s how it know what info to pull from each table.
My problem is in the query it certain records will duplicate. Certain records will duplicate 6 times while others 4 and so on. Other records on the other hand to not duplicate at all.
I don't remember the duplicate table being there when I created the relationship
Everytime I need to add something I have to add it to each one individually, and was wondering if I could enter it one place, and it would automaticaally go into all tables?
Also if this is the case, if I were to add a set of data to my non duplicates table, and if the duplicate is already in there, is there a way where it stops me, so I dont put the duplicate in, as it would save a lot of time looking throught my databse checking if I already have this data
Is there a way to enter of a person's info once into a form and then create a macro to copy/save to/save as/duplicate the info into two or three tables?
I can only find the copy command for a whole object, such as a complete form, in the macro options.)
I don't suppose there is anyway a bound control can have two sources?
The data I need to enter requires two or three different name titles in two or three different tables, but the other info of course is the same (e.g. place of birth, DOB, parents, age, etc.).
I would like to split the Excel sheet into two of those tables (Practice and Contact). I will link those tables by the AutoNum of the Practice table (PracticeID) into the field of the same name in Contact.
How do I go about bringing in the data so it works? Should I take the autonumbers from the first table and copy/paste onto the Contact table?
I presume there is no easy way to duplicate a record this way?
The form is based on a single table but that table has Foreign keys in 5 other tables
I can force an entry into each table - but that seems a bit crude (I.e add a record for every new entry in my main table into the 10 child tables - but this seems to be a waste - I only want to join tables when there is info in them - when I am doing this I can join two tables fine - but adding another one where there is no data FK seems to throw it. I will have about 10-12 tables to join.
S/No 105 and 107 exported to excel sheet are duplicate
Running into duplicate data in an Access Database can be quite annoying during the hectic workday, so I decided to write up a technique to help identify the duplicate records so you can manually handle them.
I have three tables, Practice Tbl, which identified the practice name; Task List Tbl identifies the specific task and a TASK Tbl which is linked to the other two tables. This is the table that will store the specific information. I built a form called Pending Tasks by Practice.
On this form I have a combo box that allows the user to drop down and select a practice and then a command button that allows the user to see the task pending on another form. I want to build a report Task Reported by Practice where the user can select a specific practice and then have a command button open the report instead of a form listing only tasks specific for that practice. I can currently open the form but it shows all practices and tasks pending.
