Data Entry VBA


H

Haas C

OK, to avoid confusion, all i want is the code for a procedure where if I press a button on the form it will call up a VBA procedure which would essentially update/add a frecord to the table. I KNOW THIS CAN BE DONE WITHOUT CODE, but I'm looking for VBA code for other purposes:

I have a table called tblContacts
There are two fields in this table: CompanyName and PhoneNumber

I created a form where the user can see if a company name exists through a Combo Box with the source being the list of entries in the tblContacts field - if it doesn't, he enters a new company into the a txtCompanyName box and a phone number into the txtPhoneNumber box on the form. Next, user presses a button on the form which would call a VBA procedure which runs and takes the values from txtCompanyName and txtPhoneNumber and adds to the tblContacts table

I know that you can do this easily through Form Wizard OR a RECORDSOURCE (thanks Larry), but I wanted to know how to program this into a VBA procedure.. This is a simple example to learn the technique so I cna apply it to one with multiple fields, etc.

Thank you for your help in advance!

Dim strSQL As String

strSQL = "INSERT INTO tblContacts(CompanyName, PhoneNumber) " & _
"VALUES('" & Replace(Me.txtCompanyName, "'", "''") & "', '" &
Me.txtPhoneNumber & "'")
CurrentDb.Execute strSQL, dbFailOnError.

Pay close attention to the quotes!

I copied and pasted in the code as you've written it and it fails at the Code level...I get a compiled error..."expected: end of statement.

Looks as though you may have been the victim of word-wrap.

strSQL = "INSERT INTO tblContacts(CompanyName, PhoneNumber) " & _
"VALUES('" & Replace(Me.txtCompanyName, "'", "''") & "', '" & _
Me.txtPhoneNumber & "'")
CurrentDb.Execute strSQL, dbFailOnError.

Many Thanks - that did the trick!
