I am running code that updates tables using the following:

Set rs = db.OpenRecordset("tblVendorNames1", DB_OPEN_TABLE)

I have what to me is an interesting problem.  When I try to use this code with linked tables I get run time error 3219 Invalid Operation.  When ever I try to use this with tables located in the front end it works fine.  I would like to keep all my tables located in the back end.  How can I get this to work with linked tables?

Set rs = db.OpenRecordset("tblVendorNames1", DB_OPEN_TABLE)
should be:
Set rs = db.OpenRecordset("tblVendorNames1", DBOPENTABLE)

But I advice your to use dbopendynaset if you want to change data, and dbopenforwardonly if you want to loop through data, and dbsnapshot if you want to see data

That unfortunately, still did not do the trick.  Even using dynaset.

Hi,

So,
        Set rs = db.OpenRecordSet("tblVendorNames1", dbOpenDynaset)

only works with your local tables and not your linked ones?

i ran into a similar problem, i couldn't find a way around it; i was only looking for one value so i used DLookup instead.

good luck,

this is correct..that you get the error I'mean.

The db is set to the currentdb and not the MDB where the table resides.

Two way I can think of to fix it.

One use the correct setting when you are setting the db variable:

method 1
Function opendb()
Dim rs As Recordset
Dim db As Database
Set db =     Set Db = DBEngine.Workspaces(0).OpenDatabase("c:\linkedtablemdb.mdb")
Set rs = db.OpenRecordset("linkedtablemdb", dbOpenTable)
End Function

method 2
Make a query that select everything from the tblVendorNames1, save this query as tblVendorNames1Q

Then you can directly do a:
Set rs = db.OpenRecordset("tblVendorNames1Q", DB_OPEN_TABLE)

Sorry... method 1 should be:

Function opendb()
Dim rs As Recordset
Dim db As Database
Set Db = DBEngine.Workspaces(0).OpenDatabase("c:\linkedtablemdb.mdb")
Set rs = db.OpenRecordset("linkedtablemdb", dbOpenTable)
End Function


slip of the finger

Hi hockey,

I donnut know which version of access your using, but if it's 97 or later, it never hearts to declare your variables as :

dim db as dao.database
dim rs as dao.recordset
