Why is it that when i copy the following sql statement from the immediate window and paste it into the query window and hit run query, the query will update my table. But the this same query will not update my table if i use the currentproject.connection.execute method.

"UPDATE CreditCardDetail SET CreditCardDetail.Vendor = 'ZFUEL', CreditCardDetail.GlAccount = '6110.00' WHERE (((CreditCardDetail.ImportDate) Is Null) AND ((CreditCardDetail.CompanyName)='PBI') AND ((CreditCardDetail.YearMonth)='2016_08') AND ((CreditCardDetail.CreditCard)='Amex') AND ((CreditCardDetail.Description) Like '*7-ELEVEN*' Or (CreditCardDetail.Description) Like '*CHEVRON*' Or (CreditCardDetail.Description) Like '*CITY EXPRESS*' Or (CreditCardDetail.Description) Like '*CIRCLE K*' Or (CreditCardDetail.Description) Like '*MAVERIK*' Or (CreditCardDetail.Description) Like '*PILOT*' Or (CreditCardDetail.Description) Like '*REBEL*' Or (CreditCardDetail.Description) Like '*SHELL OIL*' Or (CreditCardDetail.Description) Like '*TEXACO*' Or (CreditCardDetail.Description) Like '*UNION 76*'));"

how about running
Docmd.RunSQL yourSQL

Open in new window


I formatted your query in order to be easier to read
UPDATE CreditCardDetail
SET CreditCardDetail.Vendor = 'ZFUEL'
	,CreditCardDetail.GlAccount = '6110.00'
WHERE (
		((CreditCardDetail.ImportDate) IS NULL)
		AND ((CreditCardDetail.CompanyName) = 'PBI')
		AND ((CreditCardDetail.YearMonth) = '2016_08')
		AND ((CreditCardDetail.CreditCard) = 'Amex')
		AND (
			(CreditCardDetail.Description) LIKE '*7-ELEVEN*'
			OR (CreditCardDetail.Description) LIKE '*CHEVRON*'
			OR (CreditCardDetail.Description) LIKE '*CITY EXPRESS*'
			OR (CreditCardDetail.Description) LIKE '*CIRCLE K*'
			OR (CreditCardDetail.Description) LIKE '*MAVERIK*'
			OR (CreditCardDetail.Description) LIKE '*PILOT*'
			OR (CreditCardDetail.Description) LIKE '*REBEL*'
			OR (CreditCardDetail.Description) LIKE '*SHELL OIL*'
			OR (CreditCardDetail.Description) LIKE '*TEXACO*'
			OR (CreditCardDetail.Description) LIKE '*UNION 76*'
			)
		);

Yes, that worked, but why?. Ive used the currentproject.connection.execute method for years and never had a problem. What's the difference between the two.
