Autofill Date Field in Access 2007
Posted on 2009-02-23
I am a novice at Access, I can create a table and create a form etc but that is it. I have built a very basic database for a project I am running. There is 1 table with 3 fields, thats all. The fields are ID, Account Number and Date and Time. The date and time field is set to show the date and the time (obvious I know!)
The Account Number is an 18 digit number which is entered via a barcode scanner. What I want the database to do is open up a form, populat the account number field from the scanner (which it does now without issue) but I want it to then, automatically populate the Date and Time field with the current date and time and create a new record so I can scan the next barcode and so on.
I have 68,000 barcodes to scan so I want to automate this as much as possible.
Any Help Much Appreciated.
