Re: Purpose of System Tables

Most of the things Pat mentioned are available without going near system tables. I haven't checked for the third table, but I expect it's there as well.

eg.

Re: Access without network server

None of this is trivially easy though.

A single user can use an Access solution on his own PC.

A system with multiple users requires a different solution. Each user needs access to (ie the...

Re: Deleting leading and trailing rows after/before import

This is instead of the import.

The problem is that docmd.transferspreadsheet, or docmd.transfertext is no good unless every row in the importfile has the same format.

When this isn't the case,...

Re: Input from memo field on form appears as characters in table

Re: Programmatically deleting all records in a table

I've found that "delete * from tblname" appears to be instantaneous. Maybe not for very big files but still very fast.

Re: How to have control boxes default blank, without data entry property set to yes

it might be looping round because your tab order is not natural.

It may be writing a record at a point which doesn't correspond to the logical record end. That would probably produce the effect...

Re: Pasting data with autonumber

You can do this.

You can paste/insert an autonumber value in a query.

Of course if the number has been re-used, which is unlikely then it will fail, but the principle is OK.

How is your data structured?

Re: Split text file only works once

I would add some error handling.

Maybe the openfile action works the first time, but not the second.
Out of interest, I don't see why you get -1 as a result rather than 0 for the ubound result,...

Re: Forgot Database encrypted password

hopefully you get it back, but there is no real need to password protect a database.

Re: Deleting leading and trailing rows after/before import

let's say you have a file with rows designated HEADER, and for each header you have multiple LINES.

Now you can't use a simple import to load a whole file like this, as the columns won't align...

Late addition.

It still depends what you want to do with the notes.

You could have a vendor_notes memo field in the vendor table, and an item_notes memo field in the items table.
