Look Up Values From One Table and Automatically Insert Them in Another Table

Look Up Values From One Table and Automatically Insert Them in Another Table
Views: 1334
An append query automatically looks up fields that you select in one table and attaches them to another table within the database. Be careful though--once you make the attachment you cannot easily undo it.

Assign Values Automatically & Insert Records From Queries

Assign Values Automatically & Insert Records From Queries Icon
I have queries to run records which do not match from 2 tables. These 2 tables are not related.

1. The records are considered closed orders so how do I get MS Access to update the status field in my Master Table as "Closed" automatically.

2. There are records that are new orders and I want to insert them into my Master Table for more monitoring. How do I insert these records that are ran from a query then?

Automatically Add Predefined Values to a Table Field

Automatically Add Predefined Values to a Table Field Icon
Providing a choice of predefined values for a field is useful for table values that rarely change. For example, in a "salutations" column, you might enter predefined values of Mr., Mrs., Ms. and Dr. Then, when entering data, the user will be presented with a list of choices, and just needs to click the one to be used. You can create a field with predefined values either in Design view or Datasheet view. Here's how to automatically add predefined values to a table field in Microsoft Access 2003.

Mixing Function Values and Table Values With INSERT INTO Clause

Mixing Function Values and Table Values With INSERT INTO Clause Icon
I've been driving myself up the wall trying to get this query to add both the values I'm after, but to no avail.

My goal is to add two values into a table; one from a separate table and another generated from a function. This is my SQL so far:

Quote:

INSERT INTO tbl_Refunds (Item_ID, Fiscal_Month) VALUES (Item_ID, GetFiscalMonth(Date())) SELECT (Item_ID) FROM tbl_Payments ;

Every time I run the query, the missing semi-colon run-time error pops up (3137)! My first guess was that the SELECT clause doesn't have the same amount of fields since my GetFiscalMonth function exists only in module form and not on that table. I'm not too savvy on SQL,

How do I INSERT the values of variables into an Access table using SQL? Icon
I am trying to record certain incidents in my C# program, such as a user logging in or accessing the database.

I am attempting to use something like

1) OleDbCommand writeLogs = new OleDbCommand("INSERT INTO [LOG] (username, firstName, lastName, logDetails) VALUES (user, fName, lName, details);", connection);
but I get the error that "No value was given for one or more required parameters". The table that I am trying to insert the values into has Autonumber 'ID' followed by the username,firstName, lastName and logDetails fields.
 

Insert Into statement Compile Error: Expected: End of Statment

Insert Into statement Compile Error: Expected: End of Statment Icon
I am trying to get an INSERT INTO statement going to save some data from a form back to a table.

The help in Access itself shows the following format for the INSERT INTO when of the fields in a table are going to be saved.

You can omit the field list, but only if you supply all the values that record can contain.

INSERT INTO tblCustomers VALUES (1, Kelly, 'Jill', '555-1040', 'someone@microsoft.com')

What i have put in as code is; INSERT INTO tblReviewers VALUES (Me.txtClaimRef, Me.txtDate, Me.cboReviewer, Me.cboHandler)

But whenever i put this in I get a "Compile Error: Expected: End of Statment" message box with the text "tblReviewers" highlighted. So far as i can see I have followed the format exactly and i'm not sure what i can do to get around this problem.

Memo field ?

Memo field ? Icon
this is my problem. I have three tables, company (with fields like name, place etc.), contract ( date, end date) and third table which contains 2 examples of contracts I call it choice ( idChoice, tekst (memofield). I created a combo box which is related to another table based on filling up automatically company values but that is not important now. I am trying to create combo box which look up values in choice table (2 example contracts), which will behave like default value when you choose one of them in combo box, problem is , when I editing something in that field ( from form) it is automatically changed in the table choice, how can I look up the values in one table , and save them to the other, so that the original table that have the values is not changed? and when you create new record the value of the (in this case memo field) is same as before despite the changed previous record
