    VBA help needed to update the master table fields from imported table from excel

    Folks,
    Please help me to fix this issue since I am very new to access database. I have a master table called “Justified” and I have an imported table called “ALL JOBS”, now I want to update the master table ”Justified” with some partial fields from imported table.

    I want to update the Fields “Plant” to “MethodStatement” from “ALL JOBS” table to “Justified” table, and also I want to add new record if any found in “ALL JOB”.

    NOTE : Field called “SDJobNo” is the matching field.

    I have attached the Database and picture of what I am trying to accomplish.

    Thanks in advance,



    Joshi

    What have you tried? Query? VBA Code?
    What determines whether a record in "ALL JOBS" will/should match a record in "Justified" and be updated?

    and also I want to add new record if any found in “ALL JOBS”.
    Does this mean if a record in “ALL JOBS” is not in "Justified", the record should be inserted into "Justified"?
    What is the criteria to determine whether the record should be added?
    HTH

    Hi Steve,

    Thanks for your reply.

    What have you tried? Query? VBA Code?
    I have tried with Query only.

    What determines whether a record in "ALL JOBS" will/should match a record in "Justified" and be updated?
    For this Q, there is matching field / criteria "SDJobNo" in both tables, if this field matching then I need to update the table "Justified" from "ALL JOBS" table (Only some columns. i.e "Plant" to "MethodStatement" as marked in my first post picture)

    Does this mean if a record in “ALL JOBS” is not in "Justified", the record should be inserted into "Justified"?
    What is the criteria to determine whether the record should be added?
    For this Q, if a record in “ALL JOBS” is not in "Justified", the record should be inserted into "Justified" table. And criteria is, if any new record found in the field "SDJobNo" of "ALL JOBS" and not in "Justified" table.

    Please help me Steve to fix this issue.

    thanks,
    Joshi

    Use query builder to help get the correct SQL, then run the query object or translate it into VBA.

    Those are a lot of fields, I am showing 3.

    UPDATE sql action in VBA:

    CurrentDb.Execute "UPDATE Justified INNER JOIN [ALL JOBS] ON Justified.SDJobNo = [ALL JOBS].[SD Job No] SET Justified.Plant = [All Jobs].[Plant], Justified.Asset = [All Jobs].[Asset], Justified.Unit = [All Jobs].[Unit];"

    INSERT SELECT SQL Action in VBA:

    CurrentDb.Execute "INSERT INTO Justified(Plant, Asset, Unit) SELECT Plant, Asset, Unit FROM [All Jobs] WHERE [SD Job No] IN (SELECT [ALL JOBS].[SD Job No] FROM Justified RIGHT JOIN [ALL JOBS] ON Justified.SDJobNo = [ALL JOBS].[SD Job No] WHERE Justified.SDJobNo Is Null);"
