Ms access application screenupdating
I decided to “answer” to both requests by writing this post since both of them are related to the same subject: Access queries.
About Access and get the information from the pop-up dialog, but what if you want to determine this in your code, using a VBA function?
In the first example, we’ll open a large file with 5,000 rows and 100 columns.
Before you can start your code, you’ll need to reference the ADO library.
What a mess Microsoft has made for developers to have a hope in hell to keep all the registry keys and variations straight.
Anyways, I ended up going back to basic, and the answer was Conditional Compilation Directives.
Some days after that post, I received some e-mail requests about doing the same, but for Access databases.
More precisely, two blog readers (Josh and Maria) asked me to write two different VBA codes for running Access queries directly from Excel.
In this blog, we’ll show you two examples in which a recordset is used to collect and copy data.
Simply put: a recordset is a virtual table in your computer’s memory.
Recordsets are mainly used in database environments - for example, it’s an invaluable help when programming in MS Access. A simple example is ‘Select * from Table’ (or ‘Select * from Range’ in Excel).
There are two types of recordsets you can use, depending on the type of database you’re using.
This, in turn, is usually determined by the personal preference of the developer who will work with it. The methods to navigate them and read or edit data in both types are nearly identical. Recordsets are an alternative to retrieving data from another file or worksheet.With a simple Conditional Compilation Directives I had my answer.
