Having a problem with VBA code.  The code is failing on the .Update recordset command.  It updates the first record but then give the error -2147217887 Microsoft JET Database engine - Invalid argument.  No code has been changed or anything redesigned.  It simply stopped working.  Thank you in advance.


There are no apostrophes and all the data types appear to be aligned with the database structure.

Check your field lengths.  2147217887  is a generic error meaning there is a connection problem (not your problem since the first record works) or that an overflow has occured while trying to write data into a field.
Make sure all your numerics will fit into the field (ie. an integer value < 32768) and that all text strings are shorter then the defined field length.

Numerics and Strings are the correct data type and length.  Any other suggestions?

  Since your first record saves OK, then it has to be something with the data in the second record.  Did you check for NULLS?
  Only other thing I would suggest is the process of elimination.  Remove everything but the first field; does the record save?  then put back a few more fields and try again.  Keep doing that (or the reverse - remove fields until the record saves) until you find which field is causing hte problem.

My DB was almost 2GB.  I deleted outdated and obsolete data.  I compacted and repaired.  This brought it down to 1 GB.  I ran the import procedure and it now functions properly.  Thanks for you help though.

  Wow.  Would not have thought of that. I assumed you repeated the process a couple of times and if you did, your first save would have started to fail then to.
 Just goes to show you should never assume anything, which I should have learned by now ;)
