Exporting form data to Access

Posted on 2001-06-17

I have created an outlook form that contains a number of text boxes and a command button. On clicking the command button, I would like to export the text values directly into an Access table.

Can any one tell me what coding I need to use in the Command Button.

Any help on this will be much appreciated.

Thanks in anticipation.

Here's a link and some sample code:


Sub cmdButtonName_Click()

'Set variables for database connection

Set dbe = CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
Set rst = CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")

blnFound = False

dbe.Mode = 3
dbe.Open "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=c:\Windows\Desktop\dbname.mdb;"
strSQL = "SELECT * FROM AddressInformation;"
rst.Open strSQL,dbe,2,3


rst.Fields("FieldName") = Item.UserProperties.Find("fieldname").value
'continue for all fields you want to write to the database



Set rst = Nothing
Set dbe = Nothing

End Sub


Hope this helps.  If you need more assistance, post back.
