I am trying to delete a whole row of data in the data base.
I can't find the right code. I know how to change the existing data and then update the database but now, I am trying to delete a row and I can't. BTW, i am using ASP and Access for database.

Thanks and Cheers


RE: delete

This code would work

Dim DB as Database
Dim rstRecordset as Recordset

Set DB = DBEngine(0)(0)
Set rstRecordset = DB.Openrecordset(<<Your Recordset>>, _ DBOpenDynaset)

Do until rstRecordset.EOF

Simple but don't know if this answers your question

RE: delete

' You can also use the following function to delete a specific record, or group of
' records that meet a specific criteria

Function DeleteRecords(strTblName As String, strFldName As String, strFldVal As String)
    ' strTableName is the name of the table that you want to remove the row (record) from.
    ' strFldName is the name of the field that you're searching for specific criteria in.
    ' strFldVal is the value, or criteria, that you want met, in order find records to delete.
    ' Also, this might be helpful for you: Access will prompt you, letting you know that you're going
    ' to delete X number of records. If you don't want this to happen, uncomment the following line
    ' as well as the line after the DoCmd line.
    ' MAKE SURE if you ever SetWarnings to False, that you turn them back on by the SetWarnings True.
    ' If you don't, you wont get ANY warnings for things you do (accidentaly click delete when a table
    '  is selected, and it's gone. No warnings. Bye bye.
    ' DoCmd.SetWarnings False
    DoCmd.RunSQL ("SELECT * FROM " & strTblName & " WHERE " & strFldName & " = '" & strFldVal & "';")
    ' DoCmd.SetWarnings True
End Function
