Sync Two Databases Without Internet Access

If you have ever wanted to take two copies of a Microsoft Access database, be able to work on them separately, and then sync the added records together, this lesson is for you. 

William asks, "I travel a lot, mostly by plane. The locations I go to are often in developing countries without reliable Internet. I need to take my customers and contacts with me, but the home office needs to be able to use that database too. I need to be able to view my customer list to get phone numbers and such. I’d also like to be able to add new contact records so when I make calls I can log them, and then sync that data back into the main database at the office when I return. Can this be done with Access?"

Yes. Absolutely. You can create MAIN and REMOTE copies of your database. You can take the REMOTE copy with you when you travel. People in the home office can work on the MAIN database while you're gone. When you get back from your trip, sync up the REMOTE with the MAIN and all of the records you've added will be imported to the MAIN database. I'll show you how to avoid Primary Key collisions and be able to import your data with just a few clicks.


I'll show you how to sync up your Customer table in addition to your Contacts table. You will learn how to make buttons for a "one-click import and sync" routine. We'll turn off the Access warning messages, and you'll learn how to do all of this with NO extra queries. It will all be done with SQL and VBA.
