Create a Query in Microsoft Access to Find Duplicate Entries in a Table
There are many causes for duplicate data: for instance if you have multiple users entering data simultaneously via linked tables, or you might inherit a table with duplicate data already entered.
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.


Duplicate records not showing on report
I have created a report from a query. There are duplicate last names in the table (which is just fine). E.g., I have 2 "Hogan"s and they are different persons and I want them both to show up on the report.

My query produces the correct result showing the duplicates but the report only shows 1 of the duplicates. I'm grouping on the last name (PrimaryLastName). Whatis the report doing to my duplicate records from the query? How do I fix that?

Preventing duplicate records for payroll entries
I have working payroll generation database which I am trying to improve.

One issue I am trying to avoid is not to allow duplicate records made for employee more than once in a month, so the idea would be to check if one record already exists with same pay date before the submit macro is called. Using Access 2k10, either macro or vba works for me.

Text Import Error: "...not successful because they would create duplicate values..."
I have a file exported from an accounting system that has no extension. The type just says "file". When I had Windows XP, I added the .txt extension (in the file name itself without opening) and was able to import the file into Access without issue.

With Windows 7, it seems that this practice leads to the following error when the file is imported to Access:

"The changes you requested to this table were not successful because they would create duplicate values in the index, the primary key, or relationship. Change the data in the field orfields that contain duplicate data, remove the index, or redefine the index to permit duplicate entries and try again."

I know that none of the fields of the destination table are indexed and there is no primary key. The table has not changed in between the windows conversion. In addition, I get the sameerror if I import into a new table.

My current work around is to open the .lis file in Excel and save it as text with no further modification to the file. When this is done, the file imports flawlessly. I would like to avoid this as the file is very large and it takes some time to open.

other than something related to the primary key or index (which again I do not have).

Hyperlink primary key duplicate entries
I'm making a database for my company in order to store reports. I have imported more than 2000 entries from the existing spreadsheet into database form.

However, my problem is that the unique report number from the excel file (for example '5000') is also a hyperlink to the corresponding report on the server.

In my database, when I set these report number hyperlinks as my primary key; it seems that I can input duplicate report numbers even though I have chosen for it to be indexed. I think thisis due to the fact that access recognises the whole path of the hyperlink (for example, '5000#hyperlink path#') instead of just the report name '5000'.

with the report number '5000' again, this would not create a duplicate violation as it would not be yet linked to a document on creation (or so I think).

Is there any way to prevent duplicates for just the hyperlink name (I.e. '5000') as opposed to the whole hyperlink including path?

I am creating a table that lists Jobs. In this table there is a PartNumber field that will contain duplicate values.
