Need to speed up my code.

I have a table called MTNSUSP and another on that I do a lookup in called tblResponsible, and what I am doing is adding a field called Resopnsible to the MTNSUSP table and then looking up the value in the Code and CusType fields of the MTNSUSP table and getting the corresponding value from the table tblResponsible and putting that in the associated record in the field "Responsible" in the MTNSUSP table. Problem is with over 1200000 records it takes about 2 hrs. Any way to speed it up?

Private Sub Command27_Click()
    Dim dbs As Database
    Dim rst As Recordset
    Dim rst1 As Recordset
    Dim MtnCode As String
    Dim MtnCusType As String
    Dim ResCode As String
    Dim ResCusType As String
    Dim ResResponsible As String
    Dim f As Field
    Dim td As TableDef
   
    Me.Visible = False
    DoCmd.OpenForm "frmPleaseWait1"
   
    Set db = CurrentDb
    Set td = db.TableDefs("Mtnsusp")
    Set f = td.CreateField("Responsible", dbText, 20)
    td.Fields.Append f
   
    Set dbs = CurrentDb
    Set rst = dbs.OpenRecordset("Mtnsusp")
    Set rst1 = dbs.OpenRecordset("tblResponsible")
   
   
    rst.MoveFirst
    Do While Not rst.EOF()
        MtnCode = rst!Code.Value
        MtnCusType = rst!CusType.Value
        rst1.MoveFirst
        Do While Not rst1.EOF()
            If rst1!DisCode.Value = MtnCode Then
                If rst1!CusType.Value = MtnCusType Then
                    rst.Edit
                    rst!Responsible.Value = rst1!Responsible.Value
                    rst.Update
                    GoTo BEGINAGAIN
                Else
                    rst1.MoveNext
                End If
            Else
                rst1.MoveNext
            End If
        Loop
BEGINAGAIN:
        rst.MoveNext
    Loop
    DoCmd.Close acForm, "frmPleaseWait1"
End Sub

Create update query in sql view like this:

UPDATE MTNSUSP INNER JOIN tblResponsible ON MTNSUSP.Code = tblResponsible.DisCode SET MTNSUSP.Responsible = tblResponsible.Responsible
WHERE tblResponsible.CusType = MTNSUSP.CusType;

then in your code create this field you need and call this query to execute. Will be much faster

you can user single Sql to do that

UPDATE Mtnsusp INNER JOIN tblResponsible ON (Mtnsusp.Code= tblResponsible.DisCode) AND (Mtnsusp.CusType= tblResponsible.CusType) SET Mtnsusp.Responsible= tblResponsible.Responsible;


as i understand

and not it better and faster if yo made Code,DisCode,CusType indexed in the table design it may take space but it well speed you up

The recordset processing loop is slowing down your processing.
Using an UPDATE query will fasten the process significantly.
This query would look like:
"UPDATE Mtnsusp  SET Responsible = (SELECT Responsible FROM tblResponsible WHERE tblResponsible.DisCode = Mtnsusp.MtnCode AND tblResponsible.CusType = Mtnsusp.MtnCusType)"

and when saved in the query section e.g. named "qryMtnsuspUpdate"
you can execute it like:

currentdb.execute ("qryMtnsuspUpdate")

This will replace:
    Set dbs = CurrentDb
    Set rst = dbs.OpenRecordset("Mtnsusp")
    Set rst1 = dbs.OpenRecordset("tblResponsible")
   
   
    rst.MoveFirst
    Do While Not rst.EOF()
        MtnCode = rst!Code.Value
        MtnCusType = rst!CusType.Value
        rst1.MoveFirst
        Do While Not rst1.EOF()
            If rst1!DisCode.Value = MtnCode Then
                If rst1!CusType.Value = MtnCusType Then
                    rst.Edit
                    rst!Responsible.Value = rst1!Responsible.Value
                    rst.Update
                    GoTo BEGINAGAIN
                Else
                    rst1.MoveNext
                End If
            Else
                rst1.MoveNext
            End If
        Loop
BEGINAGAIN:
        rst.MoveNext
    Loop

Clear ?

Nico,
I'm not that familiar with SQL, how would I implement that code, via a procedure or a function, and how would it be structured. Thanks for all your help in advance.

You can construct the query in the query editor.
As it's using a subquery (the SELECT... part) you'll need to type the query in the SQL mode (looks like notepad and you get there by selecting the [SQL] option from the top left button)

There you can check the query to work properly and after saving it e.g. with the name "qryMtnsuspUpdate" you can use in the above routine:

currentdb.execute ("qryMtnsuspUpdate")

That line will replace all recordset processing I've pasted in my previous comment.

A bit clearer ?
