Duplicates Updates Query

4 New Member
Hi there

I am trying to make an update query that will update information in all occurances of duplicate records based on the First record for that duplicate set.

There are about 30,000 records in the table, and of them without the duplicates there is only about 4000 records.The duplicates are essential to work we do, so we cannot delete them.

I have a make table query that selects only the first record for a duplicate set based on the account number for that record, and exports the number into a new table. I then have that inner joined into the main table on a form, and the form only shows 1 record and updates the first record on the main table (matches by auto id number)

However in the mornings when new data comes in, I need a query that will run through the table and update all the records with the information entered on the first occurance of that account number, and then move onto the next account number and do the same, etc Does anyone know how I might go about doing this?

If it helps the table looks like this..

ID | AccNumber | Advisor | Action | DateWorked
1 | 1234567890 | Brendan | Cleared | 30/09/07
2 | 1234567890 |
3 | 6655443322 | Dan | Unworkable | 30/09/07
4 | 6655443322 |

and the information that needs updating is the Advisor, Action, and DateWorked cells.

Many thanks,

I am using 8.0 beta 1 on an RH 8 Linux server. I have a union query that I am converting from access (where it worked) and it is returning duplicates. The only difference between the two rows is the Row field, which is returned automatically. and an example of a row that it has returned duplicate. I have verified that the row only shows up 1 time in each select statement when run individually.

I've been searching for awhile now on how to remove duplicates from a table within an Access db and have found plenty of articles on finding or deleting duplicates.

I want to be able to run a query that removes one (or more) of the duplicated...

Hello all, So I'm knee deep in this import utility program, and am coming up with all sorts of "gotcha's!". 1st off. On a "Find Duplicates Query", does anyone have a good solution for renaming the duplicate records? My thinking was to take the results of the duplicate query, and somehow have it number each line where there is a duplicate (tried a groups query, but "count" won't work), then do an update query to change the duplicate to...

For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
