The way to get the database size is to point to the directory that the database is do a DIR statement with an output to a file as in DIR payroll.mdb>dbsize.txt and then read from the text file, the first field of the second line being the name (which you really don't need) then the size value of the database.

To import the text files using VB 8 use

'Imports System.Data.OleDb Dim conn As New OleDbConnection("Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=d:\path\filename.mdb") Dim cmd As New OleDbCommand("SELECT * INTO [import] FROM [Text;Database=d:\path;Hdr=No].[dbsize.txt]", conn) conn.Open() cmd.ExecuteNonQuery() conn.Close()

MS Access 2007 freezes when opening a basic TABLE. Please assist in resolving this frustrating problem.

You might try the "Compact and Repair" database option first before working on the database. Click on the "Office Button", then click on "Manage", then select "Compact and Repair Database". The usage dialog from there is straightforward. One that'srun, try opening the database again and opening the table as well.

Accessing data

Dear reader

Place an ADODC control on your form in VB.
In the properties of the ADODC control goto the TAB General.
click "Use Connection String. With the button Build you can point to your database.
Thats it.

With the following code you can connect to db:

With Adodc
.RecordSource = "SELECT * From YOURTABLE"
End With

Now you have the table in the adodc control.

you can now do this:

Label1.caption = Adodc.Recordset!YOURFIELD

YOURTABLE = the name of your table in the database.
YOURFIELD = the fieldname in YOURTABLE you want to show.

Kind regards Fred.

About visual basic coding

The standard way of creating a database using VBA, which can be modified to suit your needs is this--> Note: the code (wspDefault.CreateDatabase("Newdb.mdb"...), can be altered to save the database in a folder  such as "C:\NEWDB\text.mdb". sub NewDatabase()     Dim wspDefault As Workspace, dbs As Database     Dim tdf As TableDef, fld1 As Field, fld2 As Field     Dim idx As Index, fldIndex As Field     Set wspDefault = DBEngine.Workspaces(0)     ' Create new, encrypted database.     Set dbs = wspDefault.CreateDatabase("Newdb.mdb", _         dbLangGeneral, dbEncrypt)     ' Create new table with two fields.     Set tdf = dbs.CreateTableDef("Contacts")     Set fld1 = tdf.CreateField("ContactID", dbLong)     fld1.Attributes = fld1.Attributes + dbAutoIncrField     Set fld2 = tdf.CreateField("ContactName", dbText, 50)     ' Append fields.     tdf.Fields.Append fld1     tdf.Fields.Append fld2     ' Create primary key index.     Set idx = tdf.CreateIndex("PrimaryKey")     Set fldIndex = idx.CreateField("ContactID", dbLong)     ' Append index fields.     idx.Fields.Append fldIndex     ' Set Primary property.     idx.Primary = True     ' Append index.     tdf.Indexes.Append idx     ' Append TableDef object.     dbs.TableDefs.Append tdf     dbs.TableDefs.Refresh     Set dbs = Nothing End Sub
Hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any questions.Thank You,Raph30

MS Access and application

You probably need to be inserting the value of a text object (ie, a String) , not the object itself. In VB.NET, a String object is an actual, not unlike a Java String object. In "classic" VB, a String object isn't really handled by the interpreter as an object in the C# / Java sense, so it can be referred to directly without resolving the value via a method call. So attempting to insert an object reference into a database field from C# code will probably not work unless the database knows to call toSting() on the object, which I am 99.99999% sure it cannot (depends on the database-- in this case Access, and more particularly, what version you are using, and if there is any .NET framework interoperability).

Calling myString.toString() though returns a String object in C#, so using that is likely not going to work. What you may need to do is return a character array using the 'chars' and 'length' properties of the C# String object.

Finally, after all this, your problem could be a lot simpler: the value(s) you are trying to insert may not be right for the field-- check the length of the values being inserted, etc. Use .trim() to eliminate leading and trailing whitespace, for example. If you post your INSERT statement and an example of the data you are using, I may be able to tell you more. Also, you are in ASP.NET and data transfer from web containers to Access databases is notoriously bedeviled work.

Ms access

Stored Procedures don't exist in MS Access. You do have the following options though. Queries, which are just select or action queries. VB Code, which you can write using Query Objects as if you were writing a Visual Basic application. These can be Functions or Subroutines. In these, you would use the standard programming techniques with while and for loops, etc.

You can create complex situations combining the two of these. A function in the VB code area can accept through parameters, the single values (line by line, record by record) in a query and act on them and manipulate the values.

For example: create a query that does a select phone from address. Create a function in vb called public function StripDashesInPhone(Phone as string) which then uses VB coding to strip dashes from each phone value passed in. To make it all work, in the query on one of the field columns put "NewPhone: StripDashesInPhone([Phone])" and for every record processed in the query, the function is called with the [Phone] field value passed in to the function and the action is processed and returned.

Other than writing a function that is activated by a form button click, which opens the current db and opens a table and process it, just like in VB, this is about as close to cursors and oracle procedures as you get.

I wish it was more, but ...
