Synchronizing MS Access tables

Posted on 2004-07-31
Last Modified: 2008-02-01

I urgently need some expert help.  I have an application where I need a mechanism to synchronize the local tables with the tables that are deployed on the Web Server (a MS Access database deployed on the Web Server).

How can I do this?  Do I need to write a program using other languages to build this synchronization module?

Please help!!!

THanks very much.

ok try use this code
create a new database name  autosync
create a module name 'libReplication'
then copy this code

Option Compare Database
Option Explicit
Dim intSysCounter As Long
Dim varReturn As Variant

Function SyncMultipleDBs()
Dim strReplicaList(5) As String  'Up to 5 Replicas
Dim strMasterDB As String

'set the number of replica(s)
Const NoofReplicas = 5
    intSysCounter = 1
    varReturn = SysCmd(acSysCmdInitMeter, "Syncronising Databases", NoofReplicas)
    strMasterDB = "C:\MSACCESS\FullReplica\DB_FR.mdb" 'location of the master_db
    strReplicaList(0) = "C:\MSACCESS\PartialReplicas\DB_FR.mdb" 'Location partial replica 1
    strReplicaList(1) = "C:\MSACCESS\PartialReplicas\DB_FR.mdb" 'Location partial replica 2
    strReplicaList(2) = "C:\MSACCESS\PartialReplicas\DB_FR.mdb" 'Location partial replica 3
    strReplicaList(3) = "C:\MSACCESS\PartialReplicas\DB_FR.mdb" 'Location partial replica 4
    strReplicaList(4) = "C:\MSACCESS\PartialReplicas\DB_FR.mdb" 'Location partial replica 5

    SyncALL strMasterDB, strReplicaList()
    varReturn = SysCmd(acSysCmdRemoveMeter)
End Function

Private Sub SyncOneWay(strFromDB As String, strToDB As String)
'Required Refence: Microsoft Jet and Replication Object
'Requires Network Connection to be already establised
Dim rpl As New JRO.Replica
    On Error GoTo 0
    rpl.ActiveConnection = strFromDB
    rpl.Synchronize strToDB, jrSyncTypeExport, jrSyncModeDirect
    varReturn = SysCmd(acSysCmdUpdateMeter, intSysCounter)
    intSysCounter = intSysCounter + 1
    'Debug.Print intSysCounter - 1 & strFromDB & " -> " & strToDB
    Set rpl = Nothing
End Sub

Private Sub SyncALL(strMasterDB As String, arrReplicas() As String)
Dim appAccess As New Access.Application
Dim intX As Long
Dim intUB As Long
Dim intLB As Long
    intLB = LBound(arrReplicas())
'Sync All Replicas to Full Replica
    intX = intLB
        If Len(arrReplicas(intX)) = 0 Then Exit Do
        SyncOneWay arrReplicas(intX), strMasterDB
        'Debug.Print arrReplicas(intX) & " -> Master"
        intX = intX + 1
'Open Databases to Resolve Conflicts
    'Debug.Print "Resolving Conflicts -> " & strMasterDB
    appAccess.OpenCurrentDatabase (strMasterDB)
    'Open Target Databases
    intX = intLB
        If Len(arrReplicas(intX)) = 0 Then Exit Do
        'Debug.Print "Resolving Conflicts -> " & arrReplicas(intX)
        appAccess.OpenCurrentDatabase (arrReplicas(intX))
        intX = intX + 1
End Sub

then create a macro to run function/code SyncMultipleDBs ()
name the macro as autoexec
so it's done
when ever you want to synchronize just click the autsync.mdb
or if you want to make it automate just set on your schedule task when do you want to run the code
i hope this will help you
