    I have a problem with

    If DCount("*", "tblnewparts", "partno = '" & partno & "'") = 0 Then
    If MsgBox("This is a New Part - Do You Wish To Add?", vbYesNo, "Project
    Costing Database") = vbNo Then
    Cancel = True
    Me.Undo
    Exit Sub

    Else: DoCmd.RunSQL "INSERT INTO tblnewparts ( partno, xfile, issue ) " _
    & "Values ('" & partno & "', '" & Forms!frmprojectstabbed.Form!xfile
    & "', '" & Forms!frmprojectstabbed.Form!issue & "')"

    Cancel = True
    Me.Undo


    End If

    End If

    This works fine for part numbers such as 20025 but When using part number
    that contain characters such as / and - eg 35006/H or 041-03729A the code
    recognises these as "new parts" while in fact they are existing parts with
    matching records - The partno field is text - Can any one help?

    Also when using paste append to import data from excel all part numbers
    trigger the new part dialogue - why is this?

    Did you try to trim your part number to remove extra space before and after
    the part? (Trim(YourPart))

    I also know that excel add ' before text cell in some occasion to represent
    text. (And it is not visible in excel by default, you have to select the cell
    and edit it to see the ' character) It may be your problem.

    I have look at your code and it seems correct. You mentioned your part
    number field is text so should work. There will be a difference in the SQL if
    you need compare both text and number but that is not your case.

    Hope it will help.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
