Keep records of data entered in a box

I am building a field of a form where a zip code will be entered. After a zip code is entered a button will be pushed that will generate a small report based on the zip code that was in the field.

How hard would it be to store date of the zip code entered as well as a time stamp of when it was entered. So every time someone enters a zip code and clicks the button, two thing will happen. First the report will show (the primary function of the button). Second, a two column table will be updated. The first column will be the zip code that was entered and the second column will be a time stamp (date and time) it was clicked.

This table will simply grow as more and more zip codes are entered.

Would this be a hard task? Thanks!

You'd have to set up a history table... eg: tblZipCodeHistory.  You would probably want to store the Primary Key field of whattever "Main Record" corresponds to your zipcode data.

The code to add a record to your history table would be along these lines:

Dim strSQL as string
strSQL = "INSERT INTO tblZipCodeHistory (MainRecordID, ZipCode, DateEntered) VALUES (" & Me.ID & ", '" & Me.ZipCode & "', Now())"
CurrentDB.Execute strSQL, dbfailonerror + dbSeeChanges

Open in new window


In this code I'm assuming:

1.  The ID of the main record is numeric
2.  Zipcode is a TEXT field

If the data types are different, the delimiters in the code would need to be adjusted accordingly.
