Module Problem

Module Problem Icon
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.

Import Table Error

Import Table Error Icon
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.
 

CreateRelation error 3409

CreateRelation error 3409 Icon
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

Problem Indexing Table in Access Icon
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.
 

Text Import Error: "...not successful because they would create duplicate values..."

Text Import Error: "...not successful because they would create duplicate values..." Icon
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).

No unique index found Relationship Error

No unique index found Relationship Error Icon
I'm trying to link two tables together in a relationship so it's easier to find data and provide data redundancy.

I already managed to create a relationship with the Employee ID fields in the Users table and the Hardware Asset table.

Of course now when I try to link the software table to either the hardware table or the user table I run into that annoying "No unique index found." error and now I'm stuck. Can someone give me a hand
 

Access 2010 text import error--duplicate values in (nonexistent) index

Access 2010 text import error--duplicate values in (nonexistent) index Icon
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.
 

Database for Courtroom

Database for Courtroom Icon
I have a DB that tracks court cases. so here goes:

The first table is "Cases" - primary index is CaseID, which is unique (of course).

The second table is called "Parties", and tracks the parties that were involved in the Cases - primary index is PartyID.

Now if that were the extent of it, I'd create a "juncture" table named "Cases_Parties" that housed CaseID and PartyID. There would be a one-to-many relationship from"Parties" to the juncture table "Cases_Parties", and a one-to-many from "Cases" to the juncture table "Cases_Parties".

So far, But the snag(s) is, a party can be either a plaintiff or a defendant in a Case. Where do I house the info that the party was either a plaintiff or a defendant in the case?

Also, a case can have multiple plaintiffs and/or multiple defendants? How do I handle a situation like that?
