Access updating using linked tables grownupdating com
How to use it Just copy the code in a new or existing VBA module and, where you want to refresh the links, call it with the proper DSN for the new ODBC connection: Public Sub Refresh ODBCLinks(new Connection String As String) Dim db As DAO.
Please make sure you test this and maybe add some code to better handle errors as necessary.
Additionally Access can update a record without knowing it's unique identifier because the timestamp column is unique database wide.
Adding a Timestamp column is normally one of the first steps to be done when migrating a database from Access to SQL Server.
You don't have to do anything else, just add the field, relink he table and forget about it.

So make sure the table has a primary key, make sure you can add rows using SSMS.
If you make changes to fix this SQL table, then you have to re-link the table.
If you don’t have correct (or any) settings in SQL server that sets up or increments the primary key, then you can’t add rows (automatic in this context).
