Update one table with data from another table without losing data
Thank you for taking the time to report an issue.
What's wrong... Please write below.
There are other fields of data in the Excel spreadsheet that would not need to be populated into the Access table and are just there for the users' reference.
The field names in the table and the Excel spreadsheet are identical.
Here's my dillema. Currently, I am having to manually update each Access record in the table, by filtering on the unique ID and copying the data in Excel and pasting it into the corresponding record field in Access. This is a painful process. I know there has to be a better way to update the Access table, without damaging/overwriting or losing the data that is not being updated
For example: I enter 3 new products on my form that populates my inventory table. Once I've entered the basic data, I now want to go back, search for the first product I entered, have the data I entered appear on my form and update its status to "Shipped".
This would of course update the status in the table. I will need to go back a few times to update the status and I wantto avoid having to go into the table to do this.
Can I use the data entry form to also update previous information? If so, how?
Hope to find an answer here .
I have one table with user data (f name, l name, street etc.) and in the other table I have data when this user has contacted me, why, what did I do afterwards and so.
Here is my problem. I get duplicate data in user table each time when I enter data as access creates new entry in both table, user and usercontact and I would like that entering new data update only usercontact table if I already have that user in user table.
Im entering data using setup formwiz with combined data from both table and I supose that I did wrong relationship when I get that kind of double entry in user table.
I have related ID columns in each table
How can I know if the data was update?
How to avoid this update delay?
Is there some option to get some event (some trap) when the database table update have done or is there a way to ask ADO.NET to store all the database changes before I proceed with my next database job?
check table 1 against table 2 is the record is found then check location in table 2 against table 3 if they are different then update the location from table 1 to table 2, copying the record from table 2 to 3 first.
Basically I want the most up to date record in table 2 but I want history of it kept in table 3. Table 1 is a new data temp import table.
I have 4 tables data from which should be sent by email. These tables are related. I made a query based on tables and query is update-able. When I use this query, wizard does not giveoption of updating the data but only of adding new records.
I tried to first make a make table from a make table query but that too have the same result.
data in the backend table needs to be deleted and populated with new data thrice a day.
What would be the best way to achieve this?
There shouldn't be any data outage when the BE tabel is being loaded with new data.
I made a demo FE and a BE and tried to use the form to view data while running updating the backend (running two queries 1. Delete all data from table 2. Append new data to table) , but the form shows as #deleted till the update is done. Is there any way to avoid this?
I thought I will have and extra field and flag the old data, then insert new data and then delete flagged data. Is this the right way to go ahead?
Does anyone have any advice on how to do this? How can I update the record if there is new information
