Hi

I am using the following Excel VBA code to append a record to a SQL database
I want to check whether the entry was successful by using a Select statement at
the point in the code where it says   '+++++ CHECK WHETHER ENTRY SUCCESSFUL
I am a little confused how to do this. There is an ID column which is automatically generated so I can't use this. Is there a way of selecting the last append to the database? Or should I do a selcting that includes all three fields entered?
Sub A()
    Call oAppend(Now, "tester", 2)
End Sub



Public Sub oAppend(ByVal oDate As Date, ByVal oText As String, ByVal oNumber As Single)
 
    Dim oSQL As String
    
    On Error GoTo EH
    
    Set con = New ADODB.Connection
    
    con.Open "Provider=SQLOLEDB;Data Source=196.2550.423.227,1444;Network Library=DBMSSOCN;Initial Catalog=test;User ID=murbroscave;Password=yabbadabbaidiot;"

    Set cmd = New ADODB.Command
    
    oSQL = "Insert Into Table1 ([oDate],[oText], [oNumber]) Select '" & oDate & "' as Expr1, '" & oText & "' as Expr2, " & oNumber & " as Expr3"
    
    With cmd
        .CommandText = oSQL
        .CommandType = adCmdText
        .ActiveConnection = con
        .Execute
    End With
  
    '+++++ CHECK WHETHER ENTRY SUCCESSFUL ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    
    '+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    
    Set cmd = Nothing
    Set con = Nothing
    
    Exit Sub
    
EH:
    
    MsgBox Err.Description
    
End Sub

If you are only doing one record, why not open a recordset, add a record, populate it then Update the rs?

PS You can also, I think do a SELECT @@IDENTITY query to get the last added ID.
