3086 error could not delete from specified tables

49 New Member
Error is happening on line 30 below when trying to delete an SQL server table. The thing I cannot get my mind around, is I am deleting a table in the same SQL Server on line 24 without any errors? And I'm trying to handle it the same way.

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Private Sub CopyRecordsToSQL_Click()
  2. Dim Inuse As Boolean
  3. Dim Twait As Date
  5. Set MyDb = DBEngine.Workspaces(0).Databases(0)
  6. Set dataarea = MyDb.OpenRecordset("dbo_DATA_AREA", DB_OPEN_DYNASET)
  7. Set SQLSummaryData = MyDb.OpenRecordset("dbo_SupperSummary", DB_OPEN_DYNASET)
  8. Set SummaryData = MyDb.OpenRecordset("SupperSummary", DB_OPEN_TABLE)
  9. Dim SQLStg As String
  11. 'Check Data Area Flag
  12. DoCmd.Hourglass True
  13. If dataarea.Inuse = 0 Then
  14.         Twait = Time
  15.         Twait = DateAdd("s", 15, Twait)
  16.         Do Until TNow >= Twait
  17.              TNow = Time
  18.         Loop
  19. End If
  21. 'Set Data Area Flag
  22. DoCmd.SetWarnings False
  23. SQLStg = "Delete * from dbo_DATA_AREA"
  24. DoCmd.RunSQL SQLStg
  25. SQLStg = "Insert into dbo_DATA_AREA (Id, Inuse) VALUES (1,0)"
  26. DoCmd.RunSQL SQLStg
  28. 'Copy Data
  29. SQLStg = "Delete * from dbo_SupperSummary"
  30. DoCmd.RunSQL SQLStg
  31. SQLStg = "Insert into dbo_SupperSummary (Crew, Asset, Quality, Operator_ID, StartTimeStamp1 VALUES (SummaryData.Crew, SummaryData.Asset, SummaryData.Quality, SummaryData.Operator_ID, SummaryData.StartTimeStamp1)"
  32. DoCmd.RunSQL SQLStg
In the Microsoft Visual Basic error box:

Run-time Error '3086;:

Could not delete from specified tables.

I put it in the title of the question. But now I realize it isn't that apparent it is the error description. If you are looking for something else let me know.

I wasn't sure that DoCmd.OpenQuery () worked with action queries generally. Now I've done some tests I know it does, so the difference here is only that the first version (.Execute()) runs it without warning messages whereas the second (.OpenQuery()) can display these messages if enabled. Your choice which you use from there.

Hi everyone (sorry for my english I'm french)

I know this post is old but I got the same problem and it's the only post in the web who has a real good discussion about this problem.

I found the solution to use DoCmd.RunSQl ("delete from TABLE")
The table must have a Primary Key. Without it, the 3086 error will be fired !

How old a thread is is not important. People are looking for and finding answers to their problems all the time.

What you have suggested is an alternative approach which I'm sure works. It doesn't mean that earlier suggestions are no longer valid of course :-)
