Updating a date field in msacess
Here are some common date criteria examples, ranging from simple date filters to more complex date range calculations.Some of the more complex examples use Access date functions to extract different parts of a date to help you get just the results you want.I have a routine that imports an Excel table, changes several column (field) names, adds an index and several new fields. However, the indexed field imports from Excel as a Double and I would like to change it to Long. I am created a journal program for an internship project and I am using a MS-Access Database. Now, I am trying to make it so that they can "Update" their journals, meaning that they click on their calendar date and it brings them to that journal if they have one for that date.
Unlike the Find and Replace dialog box, an update query lets you: As a best practice when creating an update query, first create a select query that identifies the records that you want to update, and then convert that query to an update query that you can run to update the records.You use update queries in Access databases to add, change, or delete the information in an existing record.You can think of update queries as a powerful form of the Find and Replace dialog box.In Microsoft Access 2003/XP/2000/97, I have a table called DQList Update and I would like to update the [Area Number] field with the value "Mesa001" when the [St Zip] field is equal to 85201 or 85203.
To learn about creating queries, see Introduction to queries.
I agree with the suggestions to use a parameter query for this instead.
