Don’t do massive update queries using Access If you ever need to update a lot of records at once, say, increase pricing on all items by 10%, you’re much better off doing the update via a pass-thru query or on the server directly. Limiting data to just a fraction of records at any given time.Don’t load more data than you need to I’ve bounded forms to tables with several million records with no problem, how? Here’s how: Say you have a table of customers called tbl Customers and that the primary key is Customer ID, to load just one customer in your frm Customers form you would use the following syntax: Where lng Customer ID is a variable holding the Customer ID you wish to see.Instead, a typical Access database is a a collection of tables, plus a set of objects built around those tables — forms, reports, queries, and so on.
Instead use Ben Clothier’s method when linking tables, or recreate and delete them when your app starts and quits.
All I have is a childish command in a module that copies the content of one field (from the linked table) into the another field (in my stored table).
I'm somewhat confused because linked tables in a *can be updated and 4 hours of net searching has just left my head spinning. I know I can achieve the same results by either importing the linked data into a tempory table, editing my field then deleting again..I can run an update query based on all the scenario's I'll be coding into VBA, but a simple me.duedate = me.stock_eta would be soooo much simpler and more efficient.
Error handling options Select one of the following options for each error in the list: Note: This option does not validate that the data in the tables match; it only changes the name of the linked table in the Power Pivot window.
If you type a name of a table that does not exist in the Excel workbook, you will get an error the next time you try to update the table.
