Multiple Simultaneous Table Inserts

Multiple Simultaneous Table Inserts

I am programming a multiple table database and can’t figure out to link each table together so that when a person is posting data to one table that the other tables are tied to the same persons record.Even have my wife and the dog working on this one! Were stumped.

Unfortunately, because the INSERT SQL statement can only insert into one table at a time, you aren’t going to be able to do it that way. The way I’d suggest you do it is to create a query in Access that ties the tables together that you want to deal with, and then add your records to that recordset after you create it (Using OpenRecordset). This is always a tricky part of doing multiple tables…you may end up having to do multiple inserts, depending on what you want to do.
