hi,

I have written this code that runs at form close event:

Private Sub Form_Close()
Dim db As Dao.Database
Dim rs As Dao.Recordset
Set db = CurrentDb
Set rs = db.OpenRecordset("tblAMKCC71", dbOpenDynaset)
If Weekday(Date) = 7 Then
Dim str As String
str = "SELECT tblAMKCC71.SystemMO FROM tblAMKCC71 WHERE weekday(tdate)=4 And format(tdate,'wwww')=form(date()-6,'wwww');"
DoCmd.RunSQL (str)
Dim strup As String
strup = "UPDATE tblAMKCC71 SET tblAMKCC71.SystemMO = str WHERE (weekday(tdate)=4+1 And format(tdate,'mmwwww')=format(date()-5,'mmwwww'))Or (weekday(tdate)=4+2 And format(tdate,'mmwwww')=format(date()-4,'mmwwww'))Or (weekday(tdate)=4-1 And format(tdate,'mmwwww')=format(date()-7,'mmwwww')) Or (weekday(tdate)=4-2 And format(tdate,'mmwwww')=format(date()-8,'mmwwww')) Or (weekday(tdate)=4-3 And format(tdate,'mmwwww')=format(date()-9,'mmwwww'));"
DoCmd.RunSQL (strup)
End If
End Sub

It given me this error message: run-time error 2342

RunSQL action requires an argument consisting of an SQL statement.  I can't figure out any....  Please help.

What do u want to do with the SELECT statement?

U cannot use SELECT statements in DoCmd.RunSQL

they are used for action queries only, add/update/del

I want to select a value from table tblAMKCC71 where weekday is 4 and copy that value into rest of the days of that week from sunday-saturday except wednesday since it already has a value

Sorry for cross posting but if you get a minute could you look at cyber's last chain question.  The logic requires some kind of reiterative subfunction but because it needs a recordset its blowing the stack.

Some help will be appreciated.....I am beginner programmer in ACCESS 2003.
UPDATE tblAMKCC71
SET tblAMKCC71.SystemMO = Dlookup("[SystemMO]", "tblAMKCC71","weekday(tdate)=4 And format(tdate,'wwww')=form(date()-6,'wwww'))
WHERE (weekday(tdate)=4+1 And format(tdate,'mmwwww')=format(date()-5,'mmwwww'))Or (weekday(tdate)=4+2 And format(tdate,'mmwwww')=format(date()-4,'mmwwww'))Or (weekday(tdate)=4-1 And format(tdate,'mmwwww')=format(date()-7,'mmwwww')) Or (weekday(tdate)=4-2 And format(tdate,'mmwwww')=format(date()-8,'mmwwww')) Or (weekday(tdate)=4-3 And format(tdate,'mmwwww')=format(date()-9,'mmwwww'));"

Does this give you the result you want

Remove this bit:
------------------
Dim str As String
str = "SELECT tblAMKCC71.SystemMO FROM tblAMKCC71 WHERE weekday(tdate)=4 And format(tdate,'wwww')=form(date()-6,'wwww');"
DoCmd.RunSQL (str)

Can someone explain what this query exact do?  When I run the query it's saying updating 5 rows.  But when I check the table no values are being updated why?

Author

Commented:
what does this query give me:
weekday(tdate)=4 (Return what?)
And format(tdate,'wwww')=form(date()-6,'wwww'))(return what?)
OK

What is the value in tdate

is it a date or a year or what?

For example: My form is opened on daily basis so the date gets entered into the table on daily basis as well as data.  But one field value gets entered only on wednesday.
I have data in the table(tblAMKCC71)  in field name SystemMO tdate= 10/25/2006 the value is 228.  Now i want to update with same value of wednesday in sunday 22nd-saturday 28th except wednesday since it already has value.  This is done on weekly basis that is every saturday it gets updated.  The above query doesn't seem to give me the result.

Commented:
tdate is month day year example: 10/25/2006
weekday(tdate)=4  this returns 4 for dates where the day is Wednesday

to be honest I didn't look at this I just took it form your code where did you get it.
format(tdate,'wwww')=form(date()-6,'wwww')

more to the point what date or date range are you trying to establish outside of it being wednesday.

If the update you describe is done every saturday for the prior week then you can use the following.

UPDATE tblAMKCC71
SET tblAMKCC71.SystemMO = Dlookup("[SystemMO]", "tblAMKCC71","weekday(tdate)=4 And (tdate>date()-7"))
WHERE weekday(tdate)<>4 And (tdate>date()-7);

Hi Mary, will have a look

hi,
No, I want update done for the current week(not previous week).  My week starts from sunday to saturday.  For example, this wednesday one of the field value(SystemMO) will be entered.  On saturday I want to run the query to update Sunday-Saturday(except wednesday) to have the value of wednesday. In the table I have data of previous year as well as current year.  That's why I think it is important to specify the week otherwise it will pick the data of all wednesdays of the year.  
This code was given to me by experts exchange.
format(tdate,'wwww')=format(date()-6,'wwww')
Thanks

Hi,

When i run the query:
UPDATE tblAMKCC71
SET tblAMKCC71.SystemMO = Dlookup("[SystemMO]", "tblAMKCC71","weekday(tdate)=4 And (tdate>date()-7"))
WHERE weekday(tdate)<>4 And (tdate>date()-7);

It says 6 rows being updated.  But when I go to the table the values are not in the field.  Why?
Run this select query and see what results you get...

SELECT SystemMO
FROM tblAMKCC71
WHERE weekday(tdate)=4
And (tdate>date()-7);

yes i get value 229 that has tdate of 11/1/2006 which is wednesday of last week.  My update works but it puts value in the date 11/2/2006-11/7/2006(except wednesday).  I want the values in the table from 10/29/2006(sunday) to 11/4/2006(saturday) except wednesday. Is this query based on that i should run it on saturday to get the right result.

Is it possible to update more than one field in the table with Dlookup.

Example: i want to update SystemMO as well as SystemGP in table tblAMKCC71

Is this statement possible:
update tbleAMKCC71 set SystemMO, SystemGP = Dlookup("[SystemMO]", "[SystemGP]","tblAMKCC71", "weekday(tdate)=4 And (tdate>date()-7"))
WHERE weekday(tdate)<>4 And (tdate>date()-7);

I have increased my points to 250.  Any help appreciated.
The above only works if run on the Sunday.

You'll need something like this to decide what day the current date is:

UPDATE tblAMKCC71
SET tblAMKCC71.SystemMO = Dlookup("[SystemMO]", "tblAMKCC71","weekday(tdate)=4 And (tdate>date()-7"))
WHERE weekday(tdate)<>4
And (IIf(Weekday(tdate)=7,(tdate)>date()-6),
IIf(Weekday(tdate)=6,(tdate) BETWEEN date()-12 AND date()-5),
IIf(Weekday(tdate)=5,(tdate) BETWEEN date()-11 AND date()-4),
IIf(Weekday(tdate)=4,(tdate) BETWEEN date()-10 AND date()-3),
IIf(Weekday(tdate)=3,(tdate) BETWEEN date()-9 AND date()-2),
IIf(Weekday(tdate)=2,(tdate) BETWEEN date()-8 AND date()-1),
IIf(Weekday(tdate)=1,(tdate) BETWEEN date()-7 AND date()))))))));

I think I have the bracket count right, if you have any problems try adding or deleting a closing bracket at the end.

Thank you it works.  But one more question:
Is it possible to update more than one field in the table with Dlookup.

Example: i want to update SystemMO as well as SystemGP in table tblAMKCC71

Is this statement possible:
update tbleAMKCC71 set SystemMO, SystemGP = Dlookup("[SystemMO]", "[SystemGP]","tblAMKCC71", "weekday(tdate)=4 And (tdate>date()-7"))
WHERE weekday(tdate)<>4 And (tdate>date()-7);
Is this statement possible:
update tbleAMKCC71 set SystemMO, SystemGP = Dlookup("[SystemMO]", "[SystemGP]","tblAMKCC71", "weekday(tdate)=4 And (tdate>date()-7"))
WHERE weekday(tdate)<>4 And (tdate>date()-7);

That won't work ... but this might.

update tbleAMKCC71
set SystemMO = Dlookup("[SystemMO]", "tblAMKCC71", "weekday(tdate)=4 And (tdate>date()-7"))
AND SystemGP = Dlookup("[SystemGP]","tblAMKCC71", "weekday(tdate)=4 And (tdate>date()-7"))
WHERE weekday(tdate)<>4 And (tdate>date()-7);
