I am trying to reach myself more about recordsets as I have an issue that needs them.  I have data that comes from an Excel spreadhseet.  This data needs to be separated by branches and then automatically e-amiled to somenoe at the branch.  Now, I am developing this in stages and the first thing I am trying to do is create a recordset.  Simple, I have the data in the table but am trying to simply create a recordset and send the data to the Immediatley window.  But I keep getting a datatype mismatch when it hit the debug.print statement.
'First check upload to be sure that it and the report type are of the same
'type.  If not, warn user and exit sub.
Dim rst As Recordset, db As DAO.Database
Set db = CurrentDb
Set rst = db.OpenRecordset("tblAMLUploadedToday", dbOpenTable)
Do Until rst.EOF
Debug.Print rst
rst.MoveNext
Loop
End Sub

Debug.Print rst!fld1, rst!fld2, rst!fld3, etc.  

you must provide each of the field names for that recordset record.

Another way:
'First check upload to be sure that it and the report type are of the same
'type.  If not, warn user and exit sub.
Dim rst As Recordset, db As DAO.Database, fld as field
Set db = CurrentDb
Set rst = db.OpenRecordset("tblAMLUploadedToday", dbOpenTable)
Do Until rst.EOF
  for each fld in rst.fields: Debug.Print rst(fld):next fld
  rst.MoveNext
Loop
End Sub

Lets reset that:


'First check upload to be sure that it and the report type are of the same
'type.  If not, warn user and exit sub.
Dim rst As Recordset, db As DAO.Database, fld as field
Set db = CurrentDb
Set rst = db.OpenRecordset("tblAMLUploadedToday", dbOpenTable)
Do Until rst.EOF
  for each fld in rst.fields: Debug.Print rst(fld),:next fld
  rst.MoveNext
Loop
End Sub

Got it to work with a slight modiification.  Also, if I want to have the data across the page, then I woudl have to list out the fileds individually?  Somethign like

rst.field(1), rst.field(2). rst.field(3)........ after the debug.print.
Dim rst As Recordset, db As DAO.Database, fld As Field
Set db = CurrentDb
Set rst = db.OpenRecordset("tblAMLUploadedToday", dbOpenTable)
Do Until rst.EOF
        For Each fld In rst.Fields
          Debug.Print fld
        Next fld
  rst.MoveNext
Loop
 
End Sub

Thank you.  This is just start of trying to figure out a rather complex process but I needed to learn how to do this.

Did you notice the comma at the end of my debug.print statement?  that is the equivalent of a tab, and should keep all the fields in the same line.
