Need help with simple access sql statement

Hello, I'm trying to understand why the following does not work in Access SQL. Please forgive the basic crud. This would work in MS SQL, but when I try it in Access I get the following error:

Syntax error in from clause

What am I doing wrong?

DELETE *  FROM Table1

INSERT INTO Table1(email, productid, datecreated, datesend) values ('adf', 5, '10/10/2012','10/10/2012')

Select * from Table1;

in access date/time field need to be wrap in # tags

try this

INSERT INTO Table1(email, productid, datecreated, datesend) values ('adf', 5, #10/10/2012#,#10/10/2012#)

INSERT INTO Table1(email, productid, datecreated, datesend) values('adf', 5, '10/10/2012','10/10/2012')

You can not have a space after values

You need two queries:

DELETE *  FROM Table1

and

INSERT INTO
Table1 (email, productid, datecreated, datesend)
values ('adf', 5, #10/10/2012#, #10/10/2012#)

This does not work as well, with same error


DELETE *  FROM Table1

INSERT INTO Table1(email, productid, datecreated, datesend) values ('adf', 5, #10/10/2012#,#10/10/2012#)

Select * from Table1;

gustav, are you say in access sql you can't run multiple statements in one query?

Gustav BrockCIOCommented:
Yes.
But you can easily execute one after the other.

Actually you need three:

DELETE *  FROM Table1

And

INSERT INTO Table1(email, productid, datecreated, datesend) values ('adf', 5, '10/10/2012','10/10/2012')
 
And

Select * from Table1;

You can use single quotes to delimit dates in Access, but the documented method is the hashmark.

You don't need a space after VALUES.

you can run multiple separate sql statements using vba codes, this will run the queries in succession

docmd.runsql "DELETE *  FROM Table1"

docmd.runsql  "INSERT INTO Table1(email, productid, datecreated, datesend) values('adf', 5, #10/10/2012#,#10/10/2012#)"

Okay, making much more sense now... I suppose I need to do what I want in VBA to execute the various queries I need?

How should I divide up the points? :-)
