Hi all,
my query is ,

If suppose I have 2 tables:

AB

A has Field Name ProjName with Value Prj-1

If I create a new Query and Add Table A and double click on Field ProjName  it gets added and I save it with name Prj_Qry

so now  Value Prj-1 from  Field Name ProjName from Table A is saved into query Prj_Qry

B has Field Name Name

now I want to export that  Value Prj-1 to Field Name Name , in Table B , How do I do that using a query?

PS.
I want to fetch value from A into Query and Export that Query Value to B.

How do I do this?  I already fetched value from A as I said above, I just want to export to a FieldName in Table B.

Thank You

Can you post your table and the expected output you need?

Is this the same basic question you've asked here:

It seems to be so, with the names changed a bit.

Hi Pawan, I think I have clearly mentioned every step in detail. Table for now is just an imaginary and simple thing is that I need to fetch value of a field in table A to Query and export it to Field in B.

Why don't you use a simple query like
insert into B ([Name]) select [ProjName] from A

Open in new window

Hi Ferruccio,
I am creating this in Access Web app.  Not SQL

Why use a Query?

Can you not make a form based on TableB, and then include a Combo with a RowSource from TableA? That would store the value from TableA in TableB, without needing to use a Query.

Note you cannot really "update" in this manner in a WebApp. You use Data Macros to do this ...

Also, as suggested in several of your other questions, you really should work through several of the basic tutorials on working with WebApps, like this one:

Many of the questions and concepts you're asking about would very likely be answered in tutorials like that.

Hi Scott,

Yes you are correct I used Data Macros for the same.
I created DataMacro After Insert in My table1 to create record in Table 2.
Limitations are the data just remains there for only one entry in Table 2.
when I create one more record all the data is cleared (one more record here means if I click + in table 2's field it will create new record old created record isn't there anymore).

If you can resolve this I can proceed with the same.

Thanks.

You should not be duplicating values in a related table.  The only value that should be the same is called a foreign key and it has the same value as the primary key in the main table.  I put an example on your other thread.

Once this relationship is properly set up, the views can be linked and you will no longer have to worry about this.

As Crystal has said, if you're storing the SAME value in multiple tables, then you're doing this incorrectly.

If you're trying to store the Parent PK value in the Child table, then that's the way you should be doing this.

From what you've written, it's not at all clear what you're trying to achieve. Are you working directly at the table level, or have you created Views for those tables?

Also, have you taken time to review those tutorials I suggested? We can't help you if you're not willing to put in the time it takes to learn the platform.

Scott & Crystal,

I will give a brief of my project in simple terms.

There needs 2 tables ProjectPlanningProjectForecast
 
in ProjectPlanning we do enter planning for that project details that needs to be constant till changed.

fields are :
 
   
  • SapID
   
  • ProjectName
   
  • ProjectManager
   
  • GroupHead
   
  • GrossMargin
   
  • Advances
   
  • Retention
   
  • TDforStock
   
  • TDForTrading

in ProjectForecast those above constant values with other values are in this ProjectForecast . In ProjectForecast table there are total of 33 fields. out of which the above 9 fields should be constantly be available till the data in it is changed.

that is because the records in ProjectPlanning  remains same for multiple projects in  ProjectForecast  , when needed we Update data in ProjectPlanning same should reflect in
ProjectForecast  for the new records we keep creating.


I have attached the example in the pic

   forecast.png

the purpose of creating planning table is to reduce the effort of entering them manually again and again for different projects.


how can i create this? what method to follow , kindly help me with this.  

please use my data entered here and guide me how can i do that in few steps and macros wherever i need to create them.

what values can i use as primary and foreign key in which table.

Thanks.
