Share on Facebook Speed up your bookstore, retail or library processes by inputting data using a bar code scanner. Bar codes offer efficient and accurate data input, removing the risk of incorrect number entry. A Microsoft Access database is an ideal application to input and store this information. Several types of bar code scanners are available on the consumer market; some require software to interface with the database and some need no configuration at all.
Different developers have their own ways of doing things and this is reflected in their coding style. What you will see here is the way I like to write my code. SQL statements can also be quite long, and for that reason they are usually assigned to text variables so that they are easier to handle.
Compare these two statements: Lastname from tblStaff where tblStaff. Access only demands that you do this when your field names contain spaces. The brackets tell Access that all the words in the field name belong together. They also tell Access that "this is a field name" and so allows you to use otherwise reserved words for the names of fields such as [Date] which is also the name of a function without causing conflicts.
But I do this for another reason too. This makes long statements much easier to read and edit The statement itself needs to be enclosed in quotes because it is a VBA text string.
If you use the same type of quote mark for each Access will get confused. Look at this example Compare the two examples below.
The VBA sees a text string enclosed by double quotes, inside which is some more text enclosed in single quotes. I working with multiple sets of quotes gets confusing, you can always use the ASCII character code for the double quote mark - Chr 34 - instead.
There is an example of this in the next section. Putting It All Together Some of these rules are essential, others are just my way of doing things and that of many other database developers.
The illustration below shows a completed SQL statement written the way I suggest [click the thumbnail to see a full-sized image]: You might be changing the criteria, fields or even data sources specified in your SQL statements each time the code is run.
The information that the SQL statement needs is often obtained from the user through their choices in a dialog box or from the values in fields on a form. Forthcoming tutorials in this series will show how this can be done. You want to allow the user to choose a value for the Office criteria each time the query is run, so you build a dialog box in which there is a combo box containing a list of Offices.
The combo box is named cboOffice. You can insert a reference to the value of the combo box directly into the SQL statement: Alternatively, you can place the value of the combo box into a variable and then insert the variable into the SQL statement: Using a variable can make the SQL statement code easier to read and understand, especially when there are several variable criteria to consider.
It is sometimes essential to use this method when the value has to be examined or manipulated in some way before it is passed to the SQL.
Whatever method you choose, you must remember to include any necessary data type qualifiers in the SQL string.An access violation occurs in unmanaged or unsafe code when the code attempts to read or write to memory that has not been allocated, or to which it does not have access.
This usually occurs because a pointer has a bad value. I think it is possible using an ODBC connection to use Access as an interface to almost any database.
For example, I have successfully configured a SQL Server Express Edition database with 2 users, one read/write and one read-only. The main reason to allow write access without read access is that it simplifies the management of permissions, both inside the kernel and in user programs.
There are two permissions, one for reading and one for writing, and they are managed independently. With your data linked to Excel, you can create reports, queries, and read-only forms in Access.
