I am trying to create a shipment database in Access. I wish to create an Access database that will  read a table from an SQL server based on a date and a courier name parameters and populate this data into an Access Table.

I will have an access form where the user will enter a date and courier name. They then will have a ‘button’ called ‘Get Data’. When they press this button I would like the Access system to go and retrieve the data from an SQL database passing the 2 parameters.  They will retrieve the fields (Shipment Date, Courier Name, sales order number and Shipped Qty).

The data should then be updated into a Access Table.  It should do a check to see does the record exist already in Access. (if the shipment date + Courier Name + sales order number already exist in the Access database then skip update into the Access database and move to next record).

What would be the Access Code that I will need to create the connection to SQL, Read the Data from SQL passing the parameters and then updating the records into the Access Table.
