RunSQL v Execute

Difference Between RunSQL & Execute in Access
In this Microsoft Access tutorial, I'm going to teach you the difference between DoCmd.RunSQL and CurrentDb.Execute and when you would want to use each.
Mike from Newcastle, England (a Platinum Member) asks: I've been following your Microsoft Access videos for years, and you used to always use DoCmd.RunSQL in your code. But recently, I've noticed you using CurrentDb.Execute instead. What's the difference between the two, and what should I use?
Members will learn how to trap errors in db.Execute commands with the dbFailOnError parameter. We will also learn how to count how many records were affected with any SQL command by using the RecordsAffected property.
Silver Members and up get access to view Extended Cut videos, when available. Gold Members can download the database template from class plus get access to the Code Vault.
