CDaoRecordset::FindFirst() usage

As a novice on database, I am trying to use CDaoRecordset::FindFirst()
function just to check if certain 'Serial Number' exists in other table but
it throws following error:

Error(3077): Syntax error (missing operator) in expression.

Please see following code:


 CDaoTableDef td(m_pDB);
 CDaoRecordset rs(m_pDB);

 // convert serial number string to long number
 char *end;
 long UnitNum=lstrtol(GetSerialNum(),&end,10);
 BOOL faulty = FALSE;

 try {
  td.Open((LPCTSTR)(_T("Table 1")));
 catch (CDaoException* e) {
  return FALSE;
 nFieldCount = td.GetFieldCount();

  strSel=(_T("Select * From ["));
  strSel += (LPCTSTR)(_T("Table 1"));
  strSel += _T("]");

  find.Format("Serial Number = %i", UnitNum);
 catch( CDaoException* e )
  return FALSE;

 // rs is a dynaset-type recordset previously opened
  if (rs.FindFirst(find))    // Error(3077): Syntax error (missing operator)
in expression.
   faulty = TRUE;
 catch( CDaoException* e )
  return FALSE;

The problem is probably that you have a field name that includes *spaces* !

either change the field name or put the field name inside [] in the SQL
sentence. E.g. find.Format("[Serial Number] = %i",UnitNum);

Hi there, I am working on simple database like 'Product Tracking.mdb' What would be the easiest way to move certain record from table1 to table2? Both tables have the same structure and have a key field 'Serial Number'. Table1 doesn't allow duplicate Serial Number so, when I have a new data to be added to table1 but that serial number already exists in table1, I want to move(copy and delete) that record to table2.

I work with a calendar that is setting 9 hours work/day for all the resources. In the resource usage I see that more than 8 hours of work is shown in red, but also sometimes all kinds of hours like 4.5, 5.6, 4.8 hs is red as well, even though is a normal working day. What is going on here???? txs A couple of things: 1) Are you sure the resource calendars are also set to 9 hours per day? If not, they would show up overallocated when assigned to 9 hours of tasks. 2) Project calculates overallocations to the minute. If you have two tasks, both assigned to the same resource...

Edit record after FindFirst in CDaoRecordset
I am trying to edit a CDaoRecordset that is open dynaset. The online doc. for FindFirst said: "If Find returns nonzero, the current record is not defined. In this case, you must position the current record pointer back to a valid record." I take this to mean that I need to do a MovePrev() before I edit the record, but this seem not to be right. I edit the wrong record or throw an exception. What is the right way to edit a record after a FindFirst().

CDaoRecordset and Access
Is it possible to access the description field in an Access Table? Not with CDaoRecordset, or the other DAO library.
