I am writing code to export a group of objects to multiple database sources.  How do I export when the object only exists in the current db?

I have tried a TransferDatabase, however I am getting an Error 3011, how do I force the issue?

              If rs1.RecordCount > 0 Then
                
                 'Check for .ldb file -  the APDMS_MDB in use or left open by user
                            
                            strSQL3 = "Select  ObjectName, ObjectType from tblExportList"
                    
                            Set rs3 = curdb.OpenRecordset(strSQL3)
                                rs3.MoveFirst
                                    Do Until rs3.EOF
                                        
                                        nObjName = rs3.Fields("ObjectName")
                                        nObjType = GetObjectTypeConstant(rs3.Fields("ObjectType"))
                                            
                                            'Replaces existing Database objects with revised versions.
                                            DoCmd.TransferDatabase acExport, "Microsoft Access", gAPFilePath, nObjType, nObjName, nObjName
                                       
                                       rs3.MoveNext
                                    Loop

test this  codes


Set rs3 = curdb.OpenRecordset(strSQL3)
     rs3.MoveFirst
         Do Until rs3.EOF
         
               If DCount("*", "msysobjects", "[name]='" & rs3.Fields("ObjectName") & "'") > 0 Then
               
                    nObjName = rs3.Fields("ObjectName")
                    nObjType = GetObjectTypeConstant(rs3.Fields("ObjectType"))
                    
                    'Replaces existing Database objects with revised versions.
                    DoCmd.TransferDatabase acExport, "Microsoft Access", gAPFilePath, nObjType, nObjName, nObjName
               End If

           rs3.MoveNext

How does this affirm that the object exists in the receiving mdb?  How do I force the export of the object?

your code suggestion if I understand is comparing the currentdb sysobjects to the tbllist.

correct?

oops, misread your q,

are you transferring all objects ? or just tables?

if you are, then just backup your currentdb.

Tell me if I might be on the right track.  - Also just thought of a possible roadblock - I only want to export certain objects, so using msysobjects in the current db will be showing all objects and not just the ones for export.  My process includes importing all the objects form the development version of the mdb into the export tool.  And I do not want to export those objects within the export tool use only.

                            Set rs3 = curdb.OpenRecordset(strSQL3)
                                rs3.MoveFirst

                                       strObjSQL = "Select Name from msysobjects IN '" & gAPFilePath & "'"

Still not sure how to use the transferdatabase  to force the export of the object.

TransferDatabase doesn't care if the object exists in the target database or not, so I'm not sure exactly what your issue is. For example, if I have a table named "tblOne" in my development database, I can transfer it to any other database using TransferDatabase, regardless of whether tblOne exists in the target or not.

In other words, your error is occurring for some reason other than what you assume. Can you pinpoint the line where it fails, and confirm the values in your various variables and recordset fields? I'm curious whether the object is named properly in you tblExportList table ...

What is the object type id for acReport?

'
Function GetObjectTypeConstant(strObjType As String) As Long

Dim GetObjectType As Integer
      Select Case strObjType
             Case "acForm"
                  GetObjectType = 2
             Case "acModule"
                  GetObjectType = 5
             Case "acQuery"
                  GetObjectType = 1
             Case "acTable"
                  GetObjectType = 0
             Case "acReport"
                  GetObjectType = 0
             Case Else
                   GetObjectType = -1
        End Select
        GetObjectTypeConstant = GetObjectType
End Function

Turns out that my code for determiner the GetObjectType  for Reports was missing from my code.

Thanks.
