Access 2010 Saved Imports
On a related note - I have a Table called "2011" that gets updated via the Saved Import process. This process brings over a Table called 20111 which I have to rename 2011, by first deleting the already named 2011. Is there a code that can do this that can be run through a command button?
Thank you for taking the time to report an issue.
What's wrong... Please write below.
If I later click External Data > Saved Imports, and then run the Saved Import, I have to wait for a while, just like the initial import (it’s a large file).
I then get a message that says all objects were imported correctly. However, NOTHING is imported. The entire table is completely blank. Has anyone encountered thisbefore?
I am using MS Access 2010.
Is there VBA code that will perform the same action as the access saved imports? That way, just have to change the location in the code instead of redoing the saved import
I created my import successfully and saved the steps. It works fine and the import shows in the Saved Imports list (External Data > Saved Imports)
When I create the macro, I am trying to use the RunSavedImportExport action, but the import does not appear in the dropdown list of Import Export Names available to use. In fact, there is nothing in the dropdown list. I've tried closing the database and re-opening. nothing.
If it makes a difference, this is a split database.
Any idea why the saved import wouldn't be in the list
I created a program in 2003. It has a saved import routine that imports a CSV file from C:\program files\exports\data.csv. No problems.
In 2010, that function stopped working as Access said that the import routine 1 didn't exist. I recreated it in 2010.
First of 2 problems -
The import routine doesn't import the data as entered, which makes it very difficult to proof.
Second of 2 problems -
I thought that deleting the saved import specs and re-creating them with a different name might solve the problem. No go. When I go to the import step in the macro and try to select the newly named/saved routine, it doesn't appear in the list. No matter what I've done (even compact/repair), no luck.
I'm stumped at this point and could sure use the
My research on this subject indicates that one can neither view details nor edit these saved imports - oh, well. I understand that the only path is to recreate,
Here's the issue: when designing the steps, I specify a table where to import the data - the table specified is a linked table to a backend Access database. I'm trying to do this in thefront-end database - the one with the links to the back end tables.
The import executes fine - the only problem is that once complete, it has created a new local table of the same name in the front end (and obviously overwrites the reference to the linked back-end table).
this behavior is unacceptable - not to mention frustrating.
Am I missing something? Or is this a "feature" of Access 2010.
I'm supposed to fix this program, but to begin with, I would need to find where exactly the logic is that imports the queries etc. Saved imports has nothing. VBA Project has nothing. There's no macros.
So shortly: Where is the logic in adp-files?
I am testing a new combination of programs including: Windows 7, Office 2010 (not 2010 access) and Access 2003. We do not have the HP protect tools installed.
I have gotten most of our functions to work, including some pretty extensive VBA imports & exports to/from Excel 2010 (better than expected).
Part I: I want the user to get a file dialog from a form, so that they can search the hard drive and locate the files to import. Then, I imagine, the paths of the two files selected would be stored in text boxes.
Part II: The user would click a 'go' button, and both files would import. The imports happen according to pre-defined parameters, I.e. only some of the fields would be imported (the same ones every time).
Part I: And then the queries run, which I think I can do myself.
Surely this scenario is very common, yet I can't find a clear set of instructions for doing it online. the file dialog in particular seems to be complicated and depend on one's version of Access (mine is Access 2007).
what I want to do is a saved import. which is an existing Access feature. The problem is that with the saved import feature, you must always import the same file, from the same place, every time.
