What is the syntax for inserting multiple records into a single query. I have some files with thousands of records to insert and it’s too slow using
Insert into x VALUES (a,b,c).
What I want to do is something like
INSERT INTO x VALUES((a,b,c),(d,e,f)…As many as I can in one hit. I am using access as the DBMS and VB as the programming paradigm.
Depending on where you are inserting from (I’m guessing tables) you might try INSERT SELECT.
From BOL;INSERT author_sales SELECT 'SELECT', authors.au_id, authors.au_lname, SUM(titles.price * sales.qty) FROM authors INNER JOIN titleauthor ON authors.au_id = titleauthor.au_id INNER JOIN titles ON titleauthor.title_id = titles.title_id INNER JOIN sales ON titles.title_id = sales.title_id WHERE authors.au_id LIKE '8%' GROUP BY authors.au_id, authors.au_lname
