Can anyone tell me what is wrong with the VERY simple SQL UPDATE statement:

BooksConnection.Execute "UPDATE ImportCheck SET CheckStatus = -1;"

I have tried a number of methods but all I can get is "No value given for a required paramter" I want to update all records and I have tried adding a where clause just for theheck of it. ame results. I am using the same connection in many other places in my code for inserts and deletes wth no errors. Checkstatus is a yes/no field in access.

Thanks.

Try:
UPDATE ImportCheck SET ImportCheck.[CheckStatus] = true;

Strange, your query does work under Access (-1 is equal to TRUE)
So I would advise to check the names used. (ImportCheck and CheckStatus)

Access is always asking for a parameter if there is a name it can't find in the mentioned table !

Try dropping off the semicolon at the end. That is only required for MS Access.

I was just guessing you are Using ODBC connecting to SQL server. Are you and: What is the DataType for CheckStatus, Binary right?


Good luck.
