super quick one. I don't know how to use the update statement in sql

This is the essence of what I want:


strSql = "UPDATE " & SettingsTable & "SET [LastOOSLAImportDate] = (#" & Format(Date, "yyyy-mm-dd") & "#)"

SettingsTable is a variable I've defined. LastOOSLAImportDate is a field in the SettingsTable. The table doesn't have a bunch or rows, it's a simple non-indexed table with a few settings on it I use to retrieve settings from.

I want to update the one row thats in there to set LastOOSLAImportDate to today.

Cheers

Is SettingsTable the name of the table or the name of a variable with the table name?

If it's the table name:
strSql = "UPDATE SettingsTable SET [LastOOSLAImportDate] = (#" & Format(Date, "yyyy-mm-dd") & "#)"

Open in new window

If it's a variable with the table name:
strSql = "UPDATE [" & SettingsTable & "] SET [LastOOSLAImportDate] = (#" & Format(Date, "yyyy-mm-dd") & "#)"

Open in new window

Which is basically the same as your code, but wiht [] added in case the table name has spaces.

Open in new window


That's the ticket - thanks very much. I just couldn't get the formatting right!
