Create Duplicate records

Hi,

I would like to create a table that will allow only two records per
date entered. So you should be able to input as many dates as you
like, but you can have each date only twice! It's a database for
patients receiving a specific treatment (We cannot have more than 2
patients/day). I want this restriction so as to ensure we don't
overbook the rooms.

At the moment I have to different tables , in each one of which the
date field is a "no duplicates" one. I then merge the two tables using
a union query. This though is not good enough as you are not allowed
to update the records in a union query.

Any better ideas?

thnx

Why not have sub routine before update of the TreatmentDate like

SubTreatmentDat e_BeforeUpdate( Cancel As Integer

Dim MyDb as database
Dim MySet as recordset
Dim SQLStg as string

Set MyDb = CurrentDb
SQLStg = "SELECT TreatmentDate, Count(Treatment Date) AS
CountOfTreatmen tDate "
SQLStg = SQLStg & "FROM MyTable "
SQLStg = SQLStg & "GROUP BY TreatmentDate "
SQLStg = SQLStg & "HAVING TreatmentDate = " & TreatmentDateal exander &
";"

Set MySet = MyDb.OpenRecord Set(SQLStg)
If MySet!CountOfTr eatmentDate >= 2 then
Msgbox "You already have 2 patients for this date",vbCritica l
cancel = true
end if
MySet.Close
Set MySet = nothing

end sub
This will hive the number of times that date has been entered

It appears to me that MySQL version 4 returns an error messge when doing an Insert that results in duplicate entries. Version 3 did NOT return an error - it dropped the duplicate entries and ran to completion. Version 4 seems to STOP when it encounters a duplicate entry, so that the records before the duplicate are inserted and the records after the duplicate are not inserted. 3.22.27.1 - previous ver MySQL that did not return error...

I'm looking for a way in SQL to find duplicate records in a single table, that are the same based on 3 columns, regardless of what is in the other columns in the duplicate records. I would like to keep both records (or it could be more than 2 as well) where duplicate records are found. Also, I am interested in selecting all columns from the duplicate records. Thanks, Carroll Rinehart

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
