New to VB and I want to edit an Access
table in the database. When a form opens I want set an entire field (a check box) to false.
The db name: NTK_Memebers.mdb
The table name: Kart_Driver_Data
The field name: Enter_Race

I don't have a clue where to start.
Any help would be appreciated!
Thanks, Bob Schabel

Make the Field to be Yes/No type.

Then for whatever number of records you have set it to false. I think this will do it.
Dim cn as New AdoDb.Connection
I assume that the connection is properly opened. Then do this.
sSql = "UPDATE Kart_Driver_Data SET Enter_Race = false WHERE Enter_Race=True"
cn.Execute sSql,iCount
cn.close

Here is the answer ya need.

Declare these three variables, If they do not appear you will have to add in the data
control component or reference file, (In the project menu)

Dim WS1 As Workspace
Dim Datab As Database
Dim RecSet As Recordset

Dim DBName As String

'Put the database in the same directory as the project file (Or give the full path)
DBName = App.Path & "\NTK_Memebers.mdb"

'This sets up a workspace then creates a database within the workspace and then opens up a
'recordset within the database.  The record set is connected to your table

Set WS1 = DBEngine.CreateWorkspace("dbTemp", "admin", "")
Set Datab = WS1.OpenDatabase(DBName)
Set RecSet = Datab.OpenRecordset(Kart_Driver_Data, dbOpenDynaset)

'you can use recset.movefirst, recset.movenext , recset.moveprevious, recset.movelast to
'scroll through these recs.  
with recset
      .edit
      .Fields("Enter_Race") = 1
      .update
      .Bookmark = .LastModified
end with

Any problems leave a message.
