Write only dao recordset

I have a dao recordset with over 100 thousand records in it.  I don't need to read or edit these records in my recordset I only wish to add new records.  I think a lot of time is wasted when I run this recordset because it loads so many records.

How can I initiate my recordset so that it loads no records?

hi

did u use the correct syntax?
using only 'dbAppendOnly' wont work. U have to use it in combination wit a cursor.

Dim rst As DAO.Recordset
Dim db As DAO.Database
Dim strsql As String

    strsql = "select * from YourTable;"
    Set db = CurrentDb
    Set rst = db.OpenRecordset(strsql, dbOpenDynaset, dbAppendOnly)
   
      rst.AddNew
      rst![SomeField] = "Hello There"
      rst.Update

    rst.Close
    Set rst = Nothing
    db.Close
    Set db = Nothing



cheers

this will only load the tablestructure and no records
--> u can try it by moving to the first record and displaying it - it wont work.

So u can only append data to it.
