Unanswered: Appending records from table in another database
I recently started using access database. I have created a database which have few forms and tables. This database will be used in field (at different locations) to collect the data. After certain period of time I need to combine data from all these different locations and put in one single 'Master' database. This process will be done on routine basis.
I want to create a form in this Master database where user can browse and select these other (field ) databases and import into master database. As the process will be repeated I want to avoid copying duplicate records which already exist in master database.
I know very little about vb/sql coding , however I have managed to create a list box and button which can be used to browse and select the file. After selecting the file, the path is stored in list box.
Here is the code :
Private Sub Command2_Click()
Dim fDialog As Office.FileDialog
Dim varFile As Variant
' Set up the File Dialog. '
Set fDialog = Application.FileDialog(msoFileDialogFilePicker)
' Allow user to make multiple selections in dialog box '
.AllowMultiSelect = False
' Set the title of the dialog box. '
.Title = "Please select one or more files"
' Clear out the current filters, and add our own.'
.Filters.Add "Access Databases", "*.ACCDB"
.Filters.Add "All Files", "*.*"
' Show the dialog box. If the .Show method returns True, the '
' user picked at least one file. If the .Show method returns '
' False, the user clicked Cancel. '
If .Show = True Then
'Loop through each file selected and add it to our list box. '
For Each varFile In .SelectedItems
MsgBox "You clicked Cancel in the file dialog box."
I tried searching really hard on the internet but I was unable to find how to write code to import specific table from that selected database to master database. I would appreciate if some of experts would give me a direction about how to go from here...
