Selecting single row from access table

40 New Member

I have an access table with fields: ID, Name, Surname, Training. I would like to select every single row in this table to operate on it. Alghoritm would look something like that:
i = 1 to all_rows
1. Select i row
2. Check if ID exists in EMPLOYEES table
3. Read ID, Name and Surname and insert it in table EMPLOYEES
4. Read ID and Training and insert it in table PAST_TRAINIGS
5. Return to 1

How can I do that in Visual Basic code? The problem is in selecting every each row and columns in this row.

Search for "Update Query" in the help file, will give you everything you need.

You are missing the point here. I don't want to have an update query. I wrote I want it to be done via VBA code and I have my reasons. Plus I want it done just as in algorithm I wrote in first post.

Use the ADO recordset. The syntax is something like this

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Function CycleThroughRecords
  2. Dim dbs as Database
  3. Dim rs as Recordset
  4. set dbs=CurrentDB
  5. set rs=dbs.openRecordset("SELECT  whatever from [table] where...")
  6. rs.movefirst
  7. while not rs.EOF
  8.        .<manipulte records>
  9.         rs.movenext
  10. wend
  11. set rs=nothing
  12. set dbs=nothing
  13. End Function
This should be enough to get you started. The RecordSet object allows very granular access to the data, but yiu can read about that yourself

I am using Microsoft Access 2000 and Oracle on Windows 2000. When I export a table from Access to Oracle using ODBC I get error: ORA 972 identifier too long I think the error is because one or more columns in Access table are longer than 30 characters. My question is how one can overcome this problem. I also see several column names which have /, ? or spaces in name
