Insert into table

Hi,

this is VB access database.  I can insert one record but if I try to insert more than one I get a systax error.

I am not sure why.

This will insert fine for one record.

CurrentDb.Execute "INSERT INTO [Report_1_MTD_Daily_Containment] ([LOB], [CreatedDate], [Call_Count], [Contained_Calls])" _
& "(,'WMI', #" & MyDate & "#, '" & WMICount & "', '" & WMIContained & "');"

I want to do this:

CurrentDb.Execute "INSERT INTO [Report_1_MTD_Daily_Containment] ([LOB], [CreatedDate], [Call_Count], [Contained_Calls])" _
& "VALUES ('DC', #" & MyDate & "#, '" & DCCount & "', '" & DCContained & "')" _
& "(,'WMI', #" & MyDate & "#, '" & WMICount & "', '" & WMIContained & "');"

it says missing semicolon

Thanks,
Lulu

You can't do that. You have to run the query twice with one set of values.

Or use DAO and VBA. Much nicer and cleaner.

I think are you trying to insert two rows worth of data?

If so... I believe that needs to be separated into two insert statements.

Also noticed on your last line... a leading comma right after the open parenthesis...

Corrected statements should be something like this:

CurrentDb.Execute "INSERT INTO [Report_1_MTD_Daily_Containment] ([LOB], [CreatedDate], [Call_Count], [Contained_Calls]) " _
& "VALUES ('DC', #" & MyDate & "#, '" & DCCount & "', '" & DCContained & "')";

CurrentDb.Execute "INSERT INTO [Report_1_MTD_Daily_Containment] ([LOB], [CreatedDate], [Call_Count], [Contained_Calls]) " _
& "VALUES ('WMI', #" & MyDate & "#, '" & WMICount & "', '" & WMIContained & "');"
