Field Size: Integer to Double


B

Bre-x

I have this function to download data from a Pervasive SQL into MS Access

Public Function get_hrs(WOPRE As Double, WOSUF As Double)
Dim sql As String
sql = "SELECT * FROM WOLABOR WHERE MTWOLA_WOPRE = " & WOPRE & " And
MTWOLA_WOSUF = " & WOSUF
CurrentDb.QueryDefs("DBA").sql = sql
DoCmd.SetWarnings False
DoCmd.RunSQL "SELECT DBA.* INTO WOLABOR FROM DBA;"
DoCmd.SetWarnings True
End Function

On my new WOLABOR table I have several Fields that are Data Type = Number
and Field Size = Integer

using VBA or any other method can I change it to "Double"?

Thank you all

Rather than a make table query, define the fields, data types, and sizes you
need and use an append query.

Simply open the Table in Design View and change the Field Size
property of those fields from Integer to Double.
No fancy coding required. You'll be done before you could finish
writing any code.

I'm not sure I understand why...

If the data you are receiving is Integer data, changing the Access datatype
to Double won't "add" anything...

Actually, this would to the trick

DoCmd.SetWarnings False
DoCmd.RunSQL "ALTER TABLE WOLABOR ALTER COLUMN L_RUNHRS DOUBLE;"
DoCmd.SetWarnings True

Thank you all!!

If instead of the RunSQL, you use the faster Currentdb.Execute, you don't
have to bother with SetWarnings. They will not fire.

Currentdb.Execute "ALTER TABLE WOLABOR ALTER COLUMN L_RUNHRS DOUBLE;",
dbFailOnError
