How do I do multiple exports from different DB's to 1 Db at the same time.

Posted on 2014-07-14

I am wondering how to have several satellite access db's able to export a table to one single Db up on the network without corrupting the single db up on the network if 2 or more people export at the same time? I know the code how to export - I do it all the time but always one person to one db never more than one person to one db. I have seen in the pass when one person opens the db and it opens the lock file it stops anyone else from getting in at the same time. So is this impossible to do?
If it is possible I would have sat db A writing to a table A and sat db B writing to table B so that wouldn't be an issue of writing to the same table.

    You could have one table only in the network database. Then link that from all the satellite databases. From these, just append data to this common table, of course having a field with individual satellite IDs so you can see the origin of the records.

    Gustav we have a unique situation in our dept. We have many people that work from home in different parts of the country. So because of the horrible slowness of working directly on the network we do our work on our C drives and transfer that data at the end of the day up to the network. Or we have the Sat db's copied up to the network where I have access to them and I transfer all the data. When I have tried to link tables to sats on c drives it goes as slow as if they were trying to work on the network. So these are options I don't really have the luxury for.  Is it possible to have multiple uploads at the same time to a access db do you know? Or will that corrupt the db.

    It should be.
    But how about bring/copy the satellite dbs to the central location and from there - via a normal LAN - have a database with link to both the satellite db and the central and then copy the records?
