DataBase Help

I have a database with one table and one form.  I am building it to test the search feature when you have 20,000+
records.  I have five fields(auto number,number,date,time,string)  I have a command button that I want to be able to click and it writes 20 new records to the table.  I want them to be auto generated so i don't have to type anything in.  Can someone please help me.  Thank You Travis

RE: DataBase Help

I'm not sure exactly what you want but try this code out for you OnClick event procedure for your command button. I will call this command buttom "cmdExecute".

Private Sub cmdExecute_Click()
Dim rstTemp as Recordset, x as Integer, i as integer
Dim strRandString as string

Set rstTemp = Currentdb.OpenRecordset("YourTableName")

For I = 1 to 20
  'This line will create a random 5 character string
  For x = 1 to 5
    strRandString = strRandString & Chr(Int((90 * Rnd)+65))
  Next x

  With rstTemp
           'This will get a random # between 1 and 1000
           .fields("Number") = Int((1000 * Rnd) + 1)    
           .fields("Date") = Date
           .fields("Time") = Now
           .fields("String") = strRandString
  end with
  strRandString = ""
Next I

Set rstTemp = Nothing
End Sub

Hope it helps. If you have any other questions let me know.
