Delete record

VI.4. Deleting a record in a table by using recordset method

To delete an existing record in a table, you can use the syntaxes below:



For example, you have the frmModifyData form as figure below:

Access 2010 display all records in a table

If you want to delete any existing record(e.g. you would like to remove the last record(Cate007) from the table), you have to double click it and then click the Delete command button. The record will be removed from the table and the List Box immediately. See the figure:

Access 2010 delete record 

Through appending and updating the record, you perhaps have more concept about the writing of VBA code with Recordset object. You maybe already know to how to write the VBA code to settle the example. However, you can check the VBA code below:    

Option Compare Database
Dim Db As DAO.Database
Dim Rs As DAO.Recordset
Dim SqlText As String

Private Sub Form_Load()

' Display the first record on form and drop all records to listbox with selection
  Set Db = CurrentDb

  SqlText = " Select * From TblCategory"

  Set Rs = Db.OpenRecordset(SqlText, dbOpenDynaset)

  Call display   ' Call display sub procedure

  selectlist (Rs.AbsolutePosition)   ' Call selectlist sub procedure

  Call PopListbox    ' Call PopListbox sub procedure

  cmdUpdate.Enabled = False

  cmdDelete.Enabled = False

End Sub


Private Sub cmdDelete_Click()

  If Not Rs.BOF Then

      txtCategoryID = ""
      txtCategoryName = ""

  End If

End Sub


Private Sub LstResult_DblClick(Cancel As Integer)

   Dim i As Integer

   txtCategoryID.Value = LstResult.Column(0, LstResult.ListIndex + 1)

   txtCategoryName.Value = LstResult.Column(1, LstResult.ListIndex + 1)

'Update Current Position

   For i = 0 To LstResult.ListIndex



   txtCategoryID.Enabled = False

   cmdUpdate.Enabled = True

   CmdDelete.Enabled = True

   cmdSave.Enabled = False

End Sub


Sub PopListbox()

' Populate listbox
LstResult.ColumnCount = 2

  LstResult.ColumnHeads = True

  LstResult.RowSourceType = "Table/Query"

  LstResult.RowSource = SqlText

End Sub


Sub display()

' Display data on form
  txtCategoryID.Value = Rs(0)

  txtCategoryName.Value = Rs(1)

  selectlist (Rs.AbsolutePosition)

End Sub


Sub selectlist(i As Integer)

' Scrollable list

  LstResult.ListIndex = 0

  LstResult.ListIndex = i

End Sub
