Insert values to an access database
I am trying to read 1000 line items from a file and put them into a Access
Database. Each line item is a seperate column. whats the best way to do this?
The way I know to insert a record to a table is by using
INSERT INTO PersonData2 VALUES (value1, value2, value3)
If I use that I a think I have to declare 1000 variables.
Is there a better way to do this. Please let me know if there is one.
Re: Insert values to an access database
1000 items in one table? I think some thing is wrong if so.
It all depends on how things are set up. If the 'columns' in the file exactly
match the columns in the database then just loop and build the insert statement.
Here is some quickly hacked out code. You will need to define the methods
to read next column (or do what you need) and delimit (ie 'fred') and escape
(ie 'Joe''s Bar and Grill').
StringBuffer insertStmt = new StringBuffer("INSERT INTO PersonData2 VALUES
for (int i = 0; i < 1000; i++)
if(i > 0)
