Question: I am importing a CSV with dates
"HD0000000000127","ABC","03/11/2002 10:01:28 PM", "XYZ"
The third field is a Date/Time field, but it doesn't import. I get Import Errors. Can't Access even import Date/Time data?
Answer: Access can do it. But it
has to be in military format. The date and time would have to be:
HD0000000000127","ABC","03/11/2002 22:01:28", "XYZ"
Then Access will import it just fine.
Question: I am forwarding Robert Andersen's email to my Access mailing list to simulate the CPCUG AccessSIG discussion list, which is currently inoperational. For people needing Access help, I think it is better to send it to my Access list. They will receive responses quicker and they will receive more expert responses. So let's try this out. Answer: My answer to Robert is that: I never installed the ADO from the executables that Microsoft provided on their website. My ADO was installed when I installed Visual Studio on my machine. So if you have Visual Studio or any of its components (i.e. VB) then install it. The other thing that I can suggest is that you download and install the DCOM software components. Developers who are using Windows 95 must do this before instaling MDAC. Review the instructions on the web site again, you may have missed this step. Keep me posted. Does any one else have any suggestions. Regards, Fritz N. Francis AccessSIG Chairperson P.S. If you do not wish to participate in the discussion group, but still wish to receive announcements please inform me of this by email. -----Original Message----- From: Robert Andersen [mailto:Robert_Andersen @ed.gov] Sent: Thursday, February 04, 1999 12:11 PM To: ffrancis @bellatlantic.net Subject: CPCUG - Help Access/SQL server via ADO Morning Fretz, It was a pleasure meeting you last night. The whole session was excellent so I joined CPCUG. If you have time would you help me with a problem? I'm building an MSACCESS front-end (thin client) and an SQL server for the back-end (data tables, stored procedures, etc.). The front-end only contains the following ADO (an example from Access Advisor magazine) and the first Dim line doesn't compile. Sub ADOExample() 'This example uses ADO to loop thru a rst on SQL Server 6.5 Dim rstADO As New ADODB.Recordset Dim szSQL As String, szConnect As String 'Define SQL statement and Connect string szSQL = "select * from tblemployees" szConnect = "DSN = dsn_cmis;UID=sa; PWD=;" 'Open rst rstADO.open szSQL, szConnect, adOpenForwardOnly 'Loop thru rst With rstADO Do Until .EOF Debug.Print .Fields(0) .MoveNest Loop End With Set rstADO = Nothing End Sub I immediately received a compile error ("User Defined Type Not Defined") on the first line: Dim rstADO As New ADODB.Recordset I discovered I needed and download the oledbsdk.exe from the MS site (http://www.microsoft.com/data/oledb/download/downloadrisc.htm). I put it in a directory located on my d: drive. After down loading and inflating the file, I needed to run the Setup.exe contained in the downloaded files. This run setup.exe produced an error message: "The Setup program is not intended to be used with your version of windows." ??? It requires Win95 and I have Win95???? This setup was suppose to put Microsoft OLE DB ActiveX Data Object... as an option in my library. Any suggestion?? I've used the last five days trying to get ADO working in it's simplist form. I hear ADO is good; I just can't find anyone who knows how to install it and use it. Your help would be appreciated. Thanks.
