Identifying new records that are added daily to an access table

Identifying new records that are added daily to an access table

Identifying new records that are added daily to an access table

(OP)
When adding records daily to a large access table, how can unique items be captured easily? Much of the daily submissions are repeated item numbers. However, occasionally, there is a new item number.
How can that item be easily identified? Could this be done in a query? Thank you.

RE: Identifying new records that are added daily to an access table

Do you have a field in your table with a Date/Time stamp? That field would indicate when the record was inserted.

Another way (kind-of cheating) – I hope you have a Primary Key field in your table (an Auto Number maybe…?) So if you ;remember’ the last PK value, any value grater than the last PK is/are the record(s) added since last time you remembered’ the value of PK.
(I hope that make sense…)
