MS Access - Move record from one table to another on Button Click- VBA,SQL?

I have two tables, with the exact same columns (Open Tickets and Closed_Tickets). I want to be able to click a button on the Open Tickets form and move the active record to the Closed_Tickets table and delete the record from the Open Tickets table if the Insert was successful.

I know it would be easier to use a status field, but this is what the customer wants to do.

So far I have a Command button that executes the code in the code box below but I get the following error: "Syntax Error (missing operator) in query '[Open Tickets].TicketNumber=& Me![TicketNumber]'

Please see my code and help me expand it :)  Thanks!
Private Sub Command119_Click()

On Error GoTo Err_Command119_Click
 

DoCmd.RunSQL "Insert Into [Completed_Tickets] Select * from [Open Tickets] where [Open Tickets].[TicketNumber]=& Me![TicketNumber]"
 

Exit_Command119_Click:

    Exit Sub
 

Err_Command119_Click:

    MsgBox Err.Description

    Resume Exit_Command119_Click

    

End Sub

This should do it...


docmd.setwarnings false

DoCmd.RunSQL "Insert Into [Completed_Tickets] Select * from [Open Tickets] where [Open Tickets].[TicketNumber]= " & Me![TicketNumber] & ";"
 

docmd.runsql "Delete [Open Tickets].* from [Open Tickets] where [Open Tickets].[TicketNumber]= " & Me![TicketNumber] & ";"

docmd.setwarings true

I'll run the code after lunch to check.

How can I ensure the Insert Command was successful?

You can leave the docmd.setwarnings false statement out until you have debugged and are happy that the insert works....

When I run that Insert statement I get" Could Not Find Output table 'Completed_Tickets'" even though that table exists in the same database as the Open Tickets table...I see it listed right alongside Open Tickets. Do I need to qualify it with the database name or something?

Ok scratch that, now it's "Data Type mismatch in criteria expression"

I assume it has something to do with the where statement...but the Ticket Number field in the database is a Text type, and I assume anything in a Textbox is a Text value, so I'm not sure where the error is...

Has this got anything to do with MS SQL Server?

No it's all in Access...but it uses SQL language.

Oh I figured it out, just had to add in some single apostrophes.  Thanks therealmongoose:

Oh and for anyone reading this later I used a transaction to ensure the insert went ok.  Sample code below.



docmd.runsql "Delete [Open Tickets].* from [Open Tickets] where [Open Tickets].[TicketNumber]= '" & Me![TicketNumber] & "';"

docmd.setwarings true
 
 
 
 
 

Sub DoArchive()

On Error GoTo Err_DoArchive

  Dim ws As DAO.Workspace   'Current workspace (for transaction).

  Dim db As DAO.Database    'Inside the transaction.

  Dim bInTrans As Boolean   'Flag that transaction is active.

  Dim strSql As String      'Action query statements.

  Dim strMsg As String      'MsgBox message.
 

  'Step 1: Initialize database object inside a transaction.

  Set ws = DBEngine(0)

  ws.BeginTrans

  bInTrans = True

  Set db = ws(0)
 

  'Step 2: Execute the append.

  strSql = "INSERT INTO MyArchiveTable ( MyField, AnotherField, Field3 ) " & _

    "IN ""C:\My Documents\MyArchive.mdb"" " & _

    "SELECT SomeField, Field2, Field3 FROM MyTable WHERE (MyYesNoField = True);"

  db.Execute strSql, dbFailOnError
 

  'Step 3: Execute the delete.

  strSql = "DELETE FROM MyTable WHERE (MyYesNoField = True);"

  db.Execute strSql, dbFailOnError
 

  'Step 4: Get user confirmation to commit the change.

  strMsg = "Archive " & db.RecordsAffected & " record(s)?"

  If MsgBox(strMsg, vbOKCancel + vbQuestion, "Confirm") = vbOK Then

    ws.CommitTrans

    bInTrans = False

  End If
 

Exit_DoArchive:

  'Step 5: Clean up

  On Error Resume Next

  Set db = Nothing

  If bInTrans Then   'Rollback if the transaction is active.

    ws.Rollback

  End If

  Set ws = Nothing

Exit Sub
 

Err_DoArchive:

  MsgBox Err.Description, vbExclamation, "Archiving failed: Error " & Err.number

  Resume Exit_DoArchive

End Sub

>>but it uses SQL language.<<
Then perhaps you should know that MS Access uses a diffrent SQL dialect to T-SQL (MS SQL Server) and PL/SQL (Oracle) and ... well you get the idea.

For example, the solution you posted in unusable in MS SQL Server.

I'm well aware the syntax is different between different versions of SQL language.

"For example, the solution you posted in unusable in MS SQL Server."

Well aware.  I work in SQL server every day and if I needed this functionality I'd just write a stored procedure :)

I just posted it in SQL Server singe you can select up to 3 zones and I figured most anyone who has worked in MS SQL Server has probably worked with Access as well.  Perhaps a VB/VBA section would have been better...
