Default Update Table - stevie PIMPS again!

You are an ignoramus, Karl. You think you know it all and that gives you the
right to act as an ignoramus.

Look at the microsoft.public.access OP's post again. His file is being
exported as a DBase III file. My suggestion merely says to save it with a
..mdb extension and then change the extension to .dbf.

You ought to be nominated for MVP Visio and then you would be as ignorant as
visio john.

See where Steve says to rename a file from .mdb to .dbf to make it a dBase
III file.

Hello Bill,

Try exporting your file with a .mdb extension then renaming the file to a
..dbf file. Put the following code after your DiCmd.TransferDatabase

Dim OldName, NewName
OldName = "K:\CPANALYSIS\BusinessMgt\VP\Access\DBASE\tbs1.md b"
NewName = "K:\CPANALYSIS\BusinessMgt\VP\Access\DBASE\tbs1.db f"
Name OldName As NewName



Build a little, test a little.

If you get this to work for you manually, I could automate it for you
you click a button on your end and then your users click a button on
end. I provide fee-based help with Access applications. There would be
small fee to automate this for you. Contact me if you want it


Stevie, if you were any good, you would have repeat customers that would
keep you busy. Pimping your services in a free support venue also shows
you have no ethics and are definitely not someone to trust.

Stevie is our own personal pet troll who is the only one who does not
understand the concept of FREE peer to peer support!
He offers questionable results at unreasonable prices.

These newsgroups are provided by Microsoft for FREE peer to peer support.
There are many highly qualified individuals who gladly help for free.
is not one of them, but he is the only one who just does not get the idea
"FREE" support. He offers questionable results at unreasonable prices. If
was any good, the "thousands" of people he claims to have helped would be
flooding him with work, but there appears to be a continuous drought and
needs to constantly grovel for work.

Please do not feed the trolls.

John... Visio MVP
