Addendums

  • Addendum 1: if you have a yes/no value in Access, it will get changed to a bit value on the server. If you don't specify a default value, you won't be able to delete records. Also show how to use GETDATE() to provide default date/time at the server level.
     
  • Addendum 2:
    • Moved passwords to a global module to make them easier to update
    • Added a TimerInterval change to the Main Menu On Load event
    • You will need the dbSeeChanges option if you use a Recordset to a linked table on SQL Server
    • More with SQL Server not liking Yes/No fields. Not only will you not be able to delete them as in Addendum 1, but they could potentially lock your whole table. So, I'll show you how to remove NULL values with an update query (instead of just deleting them like I did in Addendum 1), set the Allow Nulls property on the server, set the default value on the server and in your Access forms, and other stuff.
    • How to change text throughout the table with the REPLACE and CAST functions in SQL

My ACCDE file is not working Upload Images   Link

Hello I am having a slight problem. Everything works just fine right up to the point I save the file as an accde file. Once created, if I try to open the accde file nothing works. It does not connect to the server or even ask for the server password. The Admin button and Re-Link Tables button do not function. Seems like all the code is disabled. Any idea what i am doing wrong?

Sounds like it's running from a non trusted location. Is the folder trusted that the ACCDE is in?

Hello Adam,

It originally was not in a trusted location and I thought that was the problem. However it is now in a trusted location and the problem persists.

Thanks Joe

Hello Richard,
I'm trying to apply your instructions, however I have some problems with this.
First, when I try to connect through the LoginF (as I have adopted the security seminar Login F code and It worked fine on my desktop Access database), I get the run time error '3024' -it can't find my database. The debug procedure highlights in yellow the following code: Read More...

Did you upload the LoginT to your SQL Server? If so, you can't use that connection string anymore with the "MS Access" in it. You need the new one that I show in the Seminar.

Hello Richard,
For some mysterious reason I manage to connect to the SQL Server through the LoginF (I used the connectoserver code in the LoginF code, and Set db = CurrentDb, and it works fine.
I also I solve the relinking tables error, by removing a table (paste errorsT) that doesn't seem to matter (probably).
However my database still is very-very slow. How could I solve this problem?

Richard,
I created a Pass Through query on one of my tables, no problem.
However, now when I try to create a second Pass-Through, when I click Create Query I do not see any of the design options (Update, Crosstab, Pass-Through etc.). Read More...

SQL Server Password Upload Images   Link

Richard,
Where do I find the Server Password to access the SQL Server database downloaded from your links? Thanks
Richard Rost

It's mentioned in the video. The database logon password is "password". It will try to connect to my server, but it will fail because I changed it on the back-end. You'll need to update the connection string and password for YOUR database. The admin password is "599cd".

Richard,
I've been waiting for this one, great job!!
I've successfully converted a large database with many tables to run on a SQL Server back-end by following your instructions.
Any further lessons on SQL Server would be welcome. Thanks again..... Bill D.

Glad you like it, William. I'll probably just dive right into an SQL Server course soon. The lessons will be the same whether you're using it online or in-house.

Hi Richard
Thank you for the "Access SQL Server Online Seminar"
been waiting a long time, Great training.
I do have Winhost service and made new SQL database and connected
to my Access app. Everything went great. Read More...

That's odd. I've never encountered that myself. Make sure you have the Record Source set to either a table or a pass-thru query. Otherwise if you have an SQL statement (especially one with a sort) then remember Access has to pull down ALL of those records to run the query locally. Also make sure you don't have an Order By or Filter specified in the form. Again... same problem.

Ya I see that if you have a complexed application with forms and sub forms on it you will need to re-write a lot of it
to run it on a SQL server.

Just watched the videos and love it.  Love to see Part2 as working with tables in SQL, and more ASP if posible. I am going back to redo the ASP classes and dive into this for the next 2 weeks.  I do have a home setup for training.  I used you instructions with small improv and it works.  Thanks Richard for providing this class... Best fathers day gift. LOL   Read More...
