COMBINE DATA AS TEXT BY UNION QUERY

Post by VKKT »

Hi all,

Greetings :cheers: :cheers:

I have two tables which I am trying to combine and I did the below union query and it is working, but I want the data to be in text file.

Please help me on this.

SELECT STAFFID, DATE_, DATE1, NoOfHours, PROJECTID, TASKCODE, DetailedDescription, REMARKS, CRE FROM [TIME SHEET DATA-AS];
UNION SELECT STAFFID, DATE_, DATE1, NoOfHours, PROJECTID, TASKCODE, DetailedDescription, REMARKS, CRE FROM [TIME SHEET DATA-ASAMI];

Regards,
VKKT

If you want to export the result of the query to a text file:
- Select the query in the navigation pane.
- Activate the External Data tab of the ribbon.
- Click Text File in the Export group.
- Access starts the Export Text Wizard.
- Select Delimited or Fixed Width, then click 'Next >'.
- Depending on your choice, you can specify some other settings, then click 'Next >'.
- Specify the path and filename, and click Finish.
- You'll get the option to save the export steps.
- If you do, you can re-run the export later on both from the Access interface and using VBA: DoCmd.RunSavedImportExport
Best wishes,
Hans

Thanks Mr. Hans for your immediate response.

Actually I need to have the data in another table in access itself without showing the linked tables drop-in fields.

Now I have another question, how to make the files updated with the new added data only without over wiring the existing data by using a query?

How can we determine which records are new?

Hi,

‘Date of entry’ field this is auto date n time of entry, this can be taken as a criteria of new record.

Perhaps

INSERT INTO [TargetTable] SELECT * FROM [SourceTable] WHERE [SourceTable].[Date of Entry] > DMax("[Date of Entry]", "[TargetTable]")
