Suppress system messages (Query confirmations)
How can I suppress the system messages when I run queries? For example, when a delete query is run, Access will ask you to confirm the number of deletions. How can I suppress these kinds of messages?
Thank you for taking the time to report an issue.
What's wrong... Please write below.
When automating actions in Microsoft Access such as running Action queries, you may wish to avoid any user intervention, for example having to OK warning messages when running an Update, Make-Table, Delete or Append query.
I have created just a simple user interface that when the database is opened it goes and checks if a security table is there and what date is in the table, if it is not up to date it says CANNOT USE, UPDATE TABLES.
This lets me make sure locations have been updated during the night and it prevents people from copying the program to another computer, because it is a hidden table.
What happens is if they copy it to another computer and try to run it, the program says "could not find file C:\.
What I would like to happen is to be able to suppress this error and have it say "Call support for help with the program" or what ever I like to put there. I don't want the system error to come up.
If not is there a way if a table is moved or copied that the contents are deleted or set to a specific value. It is a table with only one record and one field.
I am trying to automate importing several sheet from the same workbook into several tables in access. I tried the transferspreadsheet but I can't seem to specify which sheet should go to which table.
I am a beginner at macros in access (pretty easy really choose the correct one and fill in the blanks) and just starting out in VBA ( I just wrote acode to run specific queries and suppress the warning messages to date)
I am using 2010 Access.SetWarnings False to turn off the error messages. Now it seems to have stopped working. When I finish typing the word SetWarning I getthe auto-option (WarningOn) and when I run the code there is an error.
Has the setWarning property been removed? If so what can I use. I am turning off the error messages because I am appending a file which I know may contain some records that also exist in the update file. Its not an error, the query will just not add them.
So what do I do? will the query complete its operations or stop at the first duplicate?
I am combining two tables into one to create a report. I want to erase current data in combined table restarting at record 1 each time I pull the report. Doing this with sql code in access 2007. right now, doing erase table, write query 1 to table, append query 2 to table. right now getting messages galore; erasing data, creating data, are you sure? Want to do this without the wonderful messages
The Manage Data Collection Messages dialog box helps you to manage both the data collection messages that you have sent to e-mail recipients, and the replies that you have received for each of those messages in your Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 Inbox.
Do one or both of the following: 1)Customize how you want to use tips and messages. 2)View a tip.
I am developing an inventory database. Presently, I have multiple queries that can be run (system name, serial number, unit type, etc.). Rather than create a report for each query, I'dlike to use just one since the same information is reported regardless of query criteria.
Is there a way to customize the report title/label. Instead of a generic label like "Query Report", for example, set up the label to use the name of the query, I.e. set the labelto "System Name Query Report" when the System Name Query is executed and "Serial # Query Report" when the Serial # Query is executed?
I've been creating a fairly complex (the equations and calculated fields anyway) Access 2007 database for the company I'm at right now for the past several weeks. I have run into numerousissues and have been able to overcome them (with help from Access World Forums of course).
Here's the deal. I've broken Access. System Resources Exceeded error messages are popping up when I am just 3 fields away from being completely done with the database.
There are many, many calculated fields in different queries (about 50 calculated fields in about 30 queries).
I don't have too many tables (32 is the max) for a query. I don't have too many joins (16 is the max).
I have a products table where there are lots of duplicate records which I need to be deleted and just keep a single copy of that in the table. How do I achieve this? I tried to create a new table by using this query:
insert into newTable select distinct * from oldTable
but get an error which is as follows
The text data type cannot be selected as DISTINCT because it is not comparable. .
How do I get this working ? I don't understand this error at all.
