unable to execute Update query in Access 2016 on a table linked to SQL.
Posted on 2016-11-10
I am working with Access 2016 and use it as my front end to write data to a table in SQL Server. I introduced a linked excel file so I can update a field on the SQL Table. when i click run it does not update my field (dbo_WIP.ItsInHouseDate). actually nothing happens, no error message at all. I am able to update the filed manually through Access when I open dbo_WIP in Datasheet View so it should be a rights issue.
Any help will be great. thank you in advanced.
dbo_WIP is my SQL Table
[SPECIAL ORDERS] is my linked excel file in access.
UPDATE dbo_WIP INNER JOIN [SPECIAL ORDERS] ON (dbo_WIP.OrdProdID = [SPECIAL ORDERS].PCODE) AND (dbo_WIP.PrdBuyNote = [SPECIAL ORDERS].[UE ORDER NUMBER])
SET dbo_WIP.ItsInHouseDate = [SPECIAL ORDERS]![PRODUCTION FINISH DATE];
