I am asked to enter a parameter value when I run this code. Anybody know why.

Thanks
Private Sub btn_Update_Days_Worked_Click()
 
   Dim WeekNumber As Byte
   Dim DayOfWeek As Byte
   Dim WeekText(1 To 2) As String
   Dim CurrentCheckBox As CheckBox
   
   For WeekNumber = 1 To 2
      For DayOfWeek = 1 To 7
         Set CurrentCheckBox = Me("WKDay" & LeadingZero(DayOfWeek + ((WeekNumber - 1) * 7)))
         If CurrentCheckBox = 0 Then
            WeekText(WeekNumber) = WeekText(WeekNumber) & "X"
         Else
            WeekText(WeekNumber) = WeekText(WeekNumber) & GetFirstLetterOfDay(DayOfWeek)
         End If
      Next
   Next
   DoCmd.RunSQL "INSERT INTO tbl_EmployeeShiftInformation (DaysWorkedWK1, DaysWorkedWK2) VALUES ([WeekText(1)], [WeekText(2)])"
   
End Sub

See if this works:

DoCmd.RunSQL "INSERT INTO tbl_EmployeeShiftInformation (DaysWorkedWK1, DaysWorkedWK2) VALUES (""" & WeekText(1) & """, """ & WeekText(2) & """)"

the error is this line:
 DoCmd.RunSQL "INSERT INTO tbl_EmployeeShiftInformation (DaysWorkedWK1, DaysWorkedWK2) VALUES ([WeekText(1)], [WeekText(2)])"

it should be:
 DoCmd.RunSQL "INSERT INTO tbl_EmployeeShiftInformation (DaysWorkedWK1, DaysWorkedWK2) VALUES ('" & WeekText(1) & "','" & WeekText(2) & "')"

I now get the following message: Microsoft Office can't append all the records in the append query.

I just want to update a single record in the table.

thats because your sql statement is an insert (ie append) and not an update statement
an update statement would be something like:
DoCmd.RunSQL "update tbl_EmployeeShiftInformation set DaysWorkedWK1 ='" & WeekText(1) & ', DaysWorkedWK2 = '" & WeekText(2) & "'" & " WHERE ..... whatever record id etc"

typo, it should be (replace accordingly):
DoCmd.RunSQL "update tbl_EmployeeShiftInformation set DaysWorkedWK1 ='" & WeekText(1) & "', DaysWorkedWK2 = '" & WeekText(2) & "'" & " WHERE whateverIDfield = " & whateverid

life42,

updating a field in a table means revising/editing the fields value of an existing record.

appending to a table means inserting/adding a new record to the table.


what do you want to do?
