Module Problem
I ran an "Analyze Performance" on one of my tables and it suggested to index a particular field in a table that is created by running an append module. Now that I have created this index I am getting corruption errors and when I select my module I get the error; "The module name 'modImportData' is misspelled or refers to a module that doesn't exist".

Should Itake off the index in the table or is there a way to redo the module to account for the index? It is a big table and want it to run as fast as possible when I run a query off it.


Change duplicate values Error Msg in the index, primary key, or relationship
folk,

Does anybody knows how to control the the below msg to something like this through VBA:
"The Item: " & ItemNo & " already exists in the table."
instead of this:
Msg:
"The changes you requested to the table were not successful because they would create duplicate values in the index, primary key, or relationship. Change the data in the field or fields that contain duplicate data, remove the index, or redefine the index to permit duplicate entries and try again."

What is the Err.Number for this error?

Import Table Error
I get error msg: "The changes you requested to the table were not successful because they would create duplicate values in the index, primary key, or relationship. Change the data in the field or fields that contain duplicate data, remove the index, or redefine the index to permit duplicate entries and try again."
when I try to import a .csv file. I googled and could only find reference where there is a problem with autonumbering or an existing table field: [LINK]
This does not apply as I get the error when importing into Access 2007 a new .csv table.


"FieldName" is not an index in this table. Error 3800
This is the code I'm using, error line highlighted:

Option Compare Database Public Function VerifyAcct(AcctNum As String) Dim dbDatabase As Database Dim rsAcctNumber As Recordset Set dbDatabase = CurrentDb Set rsAcctNumber = dbDatabase.OpenRecordset("CAM_Portfolio_Query", dbOpenTable) With rsAcctNumber
.Index = "Account-Number"
.Seek "=", AcctNum
If .NoMatch = True Then
MsgBox "NotFound"
Else
MsgBox "Found"
End If End With
End Function

It is giving me Runtime 3800, "FieldName" is not an index in this table.
In the table CAM_Portfolio_Query, I set the [Account-Number] field to be both the key and indexed, with no duplicates allowed.

Yet I still get this error

CreateRelation error 3409
I want to rebuild a table (new) with indices and relationship links to the other tables (old) in my db. I have followed examples but can't seem to shake the 3409 error - "Invalid field definition [field_name] in definition of index or relationship".
[code]
Error 3409 pops on the append.rel statement. I've examined the index I created on the old table. The field name I used to create the index is the same field name used to build the relationship. Both fields are primary keys. There are records in both tables.

On a related topic, if I want to recreate a table that has been dropped for some reason, what I understrand is that I can create an index on the table before populating it with data but I cannot create a relationship to another table until the recreated table has data in it. Is that correct?


Problem Indexing Table in Access
I have a large database (3 millions lines) that I'm trying to index. The table is called ITEM_TRANSACTIONS and the field I want to index is called ITEM_NUMBER.

Every time I try to index, (I go in design view and set the "index" to yes with duplicates OK.

Error:
CANNOT OPEN DATABASE ITEM_NUMBER. It may not be a database that you application recognizes, or the file is corrupt.

Item_number is a field not a database. It just don't get it. I've tried to index other fields. same outcome.


An IIF Statement that is killing me
Fairly new to access and I've searched all over to get the syntax on this right.

I have a table with a field [Response] and a field [Index Date] along with an Id number.

I've tried this IIF statement but keep getting the Invalid Syntax error - "You may have entered an operand without an operator"

Due Date: IIF([Response]="IC Review",[Index Date]+30, IIF([Response]=3MTH F/U,[Index Date]+90, IIF([Response]=6MTH F/U,[Index Date]+180, IIF([Response]=12MTH F/U,[Index Date

find the closest year
I have tables "A" and B" that are linked through the variable CN6. I want to select the variables of Table B (it is variable INDEX in this case) where the year in Table B is the closest to the year in table A (by closest I mean the closest lower or equal year)
I wrote the following query
SELECT A.Deal, B.INDEX
FROM A INNER JOIN B ON A.CN6 = B.CN6
WHERE (((B.INDEX)=Max([B].[year]<=[B].[Year])));

I am receiving an error that I cannot use an aggregate function in the where clause

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).


check index "Sort Order"
Expert
I want to check "SORT ORDER" of a specific Table's Index.
I write this code :

Sub acc2010_11()
Dim result As Boolean
result = False
Dim I As Integer
For I = 0 To CurrentDb.TableDefs("Services").Indexes.Count - 1
If UCase(CurrentDb.TableDefs("Services").Indexes(i).N ame) = "MFT" Then
If Not CurrentDb.TableDefs("Services").Indexes(i).Primary Then
result = CurrentDb.TableDefs("Services").Indexes(i).Fields = "+ServiceName"
MsgBox CurrentDb.TableDefs("Services").Indexes(i).Propert ies("sort")
End If
End If
Next I
MsgBox result
End Sub

but this line has a error:
MsgBox CurrentDb.TableDefs("Services").Indexes(i).Propert ies("sort")

any solution available for showing SordOrder of a Index


Adding new records after importing data
I have a new database and have brought data into it from an old database. There are 575 records.

I created a form for adding new records. It is based directly on the table.
The table has an ID field that is automatically generated and is also the Primary key.

On adding a new record through the form, I am getting an error message
"The record cannot be saved because it would generate duplicate values in the index, primary key or relationship. Change the data in the field" (it won't let me) "remove the index or redefine the index to allow duplicates" (! - I do not want to do that, do I?)

E.g. It tried to save the new record with an ID of 420 (where did it get that from?)

How do I get it to go to the next available new record, e.g. 576


Error message to display on entry of duplicate value with two fields as index
I was using the following code on a field (ItemCode) that was indexed to prevent duplication of records. The intent is that the user will get an error message that a duplicate exists before they enter all the data for the record and get the built in error message that Access 2003 provides when an index violation has occurred.

Private Sub ItemCode_BeforeUpdate(Cancel As Integer) Dim Answer As Variant Answer = DLookup("[ItemCode]", "tblQuestions", "[ItemCode] = '" & Me.ItemCode & "'") If Not IsNull(Answer) Then MsgBox "Item Code already exists" & vbCrLf & "Please enter unique Item Code.", vbCritical + vbOKOnly + vbDefaultButton1, "Duplicate"
Cancel = True Me.ItemCode.Undo
Else: End If End Sub

Now, the index for this is based on two fields (ItemCode and Question Group). I would like to display the same message before update but don't know how to include the second field in the syntax.

Anybody know a solution


Access 2010 text import error--duplicate values in (nonexistent) index
I'm unable to import my csv file into Access 2010. It gives me an error message saying that "The changes you requested to the table were not successful because they would create duplicate values in the index, primary key, or relationship." Even though there is no table, no index, and no relationship defined.

For the last attempt, I started with a completely blank database, went into the Specs and changed all field Indexes to "No" (even though none specified 'unique') and still got the error. The text file is comma delimited with quotes around the text fields and field names in the first row, all of which is fine.

Regardless of whether or not I have Access create a primary keyfield, I still get the error.

Was there a "patch" in the last few weeks that messed up this functionality? It worked fine a few weeks ago with the same type of text files, just older data.

I'd try to open and save the file in Excel to see if that made a difference, but I have numbers with leading zeroes and Excel doesn't respect the quotes around the fields; at least Excel asa database is easily (and rightly) avoided because of such nonsense, but I want and need to use Access.


Dynamic multifunctional arrays?
I want to be able to have an array defined in this way:

nameofarray(,2)

where I then iterate through a recordset that I get via a query, and for each new entry, insert a name into the first index, and their email in the second index. For instance:

nameofarray(0,0)="James"
nameofarray(0,1)="james@email.com"
nameofarray(1,0)="Tim"
nameofarray(1,1)="Tim@email.com"

And so on and so forth. I've tried a variety of things with redim preserves and so forth but I always run into index errors and incorrect array syntax.


Lookup Field Datatype Mismatch
I'm new to the forum, so I apologize if this is not posted in the proper place.

I am using Access to join SharePoint list data.

I have a lookup field in a table (table2) and the source of the lookup in another table (table1). I am trying to join the tables on this attribute.

When I view the tables in Access, both fields are displayed as text.However, when I view the datatypes, the field in table1 is text, whereas the field in table2 is number (I suppose this is the index value or ID).

Any ideas on how to retreive text instead of the index value for table2 or the index value instead of text in table1, or convert these values to a common datatype?

Cstr solves the datatype mismatch error, but returns a null set since for example "Value1" != "1"
