I need to send a table that is sent to us daily to an archive when we are through with it.
The name of the table is something like PRWBBEPI_****. The last 4 digits will be different. Can i use a wild card in the function and if so, how? Thanks for any help



Public Function Send2Archive()

 DoCmd.TransferDatabase transfertype:=acExport, _
  databasetype:="Microsoft Access", _
  databasename:="C:\Documents and Settings\Leidago\My Documents\destination.mdb", _
  ObjectType:=acTable, Source:="users", _
  Destination:="userstbl", structureonly:=False
 
 
End Function

do you have more than one table that starts with "PRWBBEPI_" ?

dim td as dao.tabledef, db as dao.database, sTable as string
set db=currentdb

for each td in db.tabledefs
        if left(td.name,9)="PRWBBEPI_" then
            sTable=td.name

            msgbox sTable

           
            Send2Archive stable
next


you can change your function to accept variable names

Public Function Send2Archive(strTable as string)

 DoCmd.TransferDatabase transfertype:=acExport, _
  databasetype:="Microsoft Access", _
  databasename:="C:\Documents and Settings\Leidago\My Documents\destination.mdb", _
  ObjectType:=acTable, Source:=strTable, _
  Destination:=strTable, structureonly:=False
 
 
End Function
