Update Multiple Records
I am using following code to update 1 record in a table named "Evaluators", but this code is updating two records instead of one. It updates my required record and 1st record as well But I want to update only my required record. Kindly guide me.
Private Sub UpdatePassword_Click() DoCmd.RunSQL "UPDATE Evaluators SET Evaluators.[Password] = EditPass.value WHERE (((Evaluators.Username)=Username.Value));" End Sub
Thank you for taking the time to report an issue.
What's wrong... Please write below.
I am using code behind a command button to try to accomplish this. The idea is that once the user 1) inputs the desired text data into the text box; 2) selects multiple records from thelist box; 3) clicks the command button - the updates are completed.
My problem is successfully updating only the selected records, versus all of the records that are in the table.
What I aim to do is create a query that searches for multiple order numbers at a time and presents all the fields for these records in a continuous form so I can update post dates in a single sweep.
My idea is more conceptual at this stage rather than functional but just wondered if there was a solution out there to help me on my way?
For example, if the fieldalready has "ABC" and I want to update the field of multiple records to have "DEF", then the field will be "ABCDEF" after the update is run.
I looked at the crosstab query, but that looks like it is for numbers and not text. The append query does whole records not just certain fields. butI thought I would ask before I wrote off the possibility.
Desire: I would like to export specific records from Access into Excel, make the updates to the records in Excel, then import the changes back into Access. I am looking for the updated Excel spreadsheet to overwrite the existing data in Access for that particular record.
Not sure if this is possible. Any instruction or alternative method for performing this "batching update" would be
When that code runs only the record with focus gets updated, so I need to manual select each record, press the button and select another record until done, how can I make it so all the records update?
If I remove the productID from the WHERE clause it updates all the records for the order but it updates them all with the first record from the source.
I tried adding the SELECT and FROM to the code but it always brings up a runtime error saying syntax error in statement.
What I am trying to do:
If I have a group of 50 people who attend a course, I want to be able to update the corresponding records in the table.
Currently, I have a form with a datasheet subform in which I have to navigate to the appropriate employee, find the appropriate record in the subform (quite the daunting task with the amount of courses there are), and then update it. Then I have to go to the next person's record and repeat the process.
There must be a more efficient way. I have thought of an update query, but can't figure out how to select specific employees to apply the changes to.
Each version of the Excel file will always contain the same # of master records with an identical update in one field.
: my update works when I use the record navigation buttons down on the bottom but I want to use combo boxes to select the record rather than toggling through the records one by one.
