INSERT results in nothing


M

mi

I’m using Access 2003. I’m reading data from a .txt file.
I’m building my SQL sentence:

SQLstr1 = "INSERT INTO Photos
(rowId,boxId,magasineId,magasineName,pictureId,photoid) VALUES (" & _
rowid & "," & boxId & ",'" & magasineId & "','" & magasineName & "',"
& pictureId & "," & photoid & ");"

I execute my SQL sentence:

CurrentDb.Execute SQLstr1

The last thing I do in the code is:
Close #intFile
db.Close
Set db = Nothing

I get no errors or warnings, what so ever. But my db, Photos, looks
just as it did before.
What have I done wrong or missed to do?

Thanks in advance

Try this step to excecute:

CurrentDb.Execute SQLstr1, dbFailOnError

Then you'll get an error message/status back if the insert is failing. That
should help debug what is going on.

Hej Ken

Thanks for your answer.
I added dbFailOnError as you suggested once as an Integer, then as a
variant.
Sadly it resulted in nothing.

Any other ideas?

Then likely there is no error occurring for the insertion itself. Thus, I
suggest that your variables might not have any values? Put a breakpoint on
your code step that sets the SQLstr1 variable. When the code stops on that
step, hover over the variables that you're using for the VALUES data. What
values do you see for the variables?

I 've checked hat all variables contains data, and yes all variables
contains data.

I belive it's time to show the whole function.
Maby you'll find somethinh else that is completely wrong.

Thanks for helping me

Assuming you're running a Windows operating system, this step:
strDir = Forms![importWhat]![dir] & "/"

is using the wrong slash. Try this:
strDir = Forms![importWhat]![dir] & "\"


Also, I don't understand this step:
check = DLookup("magasineId", "Photos", "[magasineName] = '" &
strFile & "' ")

Are you saying that you have the "magasineName" value in strFile? Your code
sets strFile to the name of the text file (without the ".txt" extension).
Shouldn't you be using magasineName instead:
check = DLookup("magasineId", "Photos", "[magasineName] = '" &
magasineName & "' ")

Hi Ken

Really thanks a lot for your smart suggestions.
When I’m reading the file everything looks absolutely correct. I’ve
checking every variable,, just to see weather the data is correct or
not. My answer is YES the data is correct. .I has even checked that if
the variable is an integer it’s an integer that’s also checked in the
db.

Of course I’ve checked all the data I’m sending to the correct data to
me database.
So what’s more to check?

I do understand if you get tired of me. But frankly you ate the only
one that to say if I’ve got it right or not.

This line does matter:
Also, I don't understand this step:
check = DLookup("magasineId", "Photos", "[magasineName] = '" &
strFile & "' ")
Silly as it is nor doe this:
is using the wrong slash. Try this:
strDir = Forms![importWhat]![dir] & "\"
I’ve tried a lot of different things and nothings matter.
God night and sleep well

Use Debug to pause your code after it sets the SQLstr1 variable.

In the Immediate Window, enter this expression and hit Enter key:
?SQLstr1

Let's see what the SQL string is that is being built. Does it look right for
the data that you expect?

Hi Ken

I’m reading data from a .txt file. Which isI separated with ;
I’m building a SQL sentence: in SQLstr1 which is declared as
Dim SQLstr1 As Variant ,or
Dim SQLstr1 As String
same result

This is only two lines
SQLstr1 = "INSERT INTO Photos
(rowId,boxId,magasineId,magasineName,pictureId,photoid) VALUES (" & _
rowid & "," & boxId & ",'" & magasineId & "','" & magasineName & "',"
& pictureId & "," & photoid & ");"

I then execute my SQL sentence:

CurrentDb.Execute SQLstr1

I make a test what SQLstr1 contains (just for this case).
MsgBox CIAO "SQLstr1

It looks lide this:

CIAO INSERT INTO Photos
(rowId,boxId,magasineId,magasineName,pictureId,photoid) VALUES
(3800,102,'A','Berlin 06',1,2);

So, do you see any errors?

Thanks for all you help

No, the SQL statement has proper syntax.

Are any of the fields in the Photos table insertion an autonumber data type?
