Using a single form for View/Add/Update

Using a single form for View/Add/Update

Using a single form for View/Add/Update

Is it possible to use a single .adp form to View/Add/Update a record.  I have just converted my Access 2003 DB to MS SQL 2005 DB and I am able to view records, but I am unable to add or update these records.  

I am new to Access 2003, but I have a lot of MS SQL experience.  Any help or direction would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

RE: Using a single form for View/Add/Update

Do you have a primary key on the table you're displaying through the form? If not, add one (an Identity field will do) and try again.

If you're displaying data from a view, lookup the UniqueTable property in the Help file.

I would suggest using stored procedures for record updates and inserts. The Access way may be comfortable, but your data is in real danger.

How might I pass a form field as a parameter using stored procedures?

Thanks in advance,
