Example Code of Update QuickBooks from MS Access

Requirements of Update QB from MS Access

Now take below as an example:

     All I am trying to do is to update the account number in QB from a table that I built in Access. In Access I linked the QB Account table and did a join to my new table that has the Account.FullName field in it. Below are my queries tried in SQL:

UPDATE [QB Account Master] RIGHT JOIN Account ON [QB Account Master].FullName = Account.FullName SET Account.AccountNumber = [QB Account Master]![GP Account Number] WHERE (([Account]![FullName]=[QB Account Master]![FullName]));

or

UPDATE Account, [Copy of QB Account Master] SET Account.AccountNumber = [Copy of QB Account Master]![AccountNumber]
WHERE (((Account.AccountNumber) Is Null) AND ((Account.ListID)=[Copy of QB Account Master]![ListID]));

But always get QuickBooks error message: cannot merge list elements

Possible Solutions

Try changing the SET Account.AccountNumber to SET AccountNumber and drop the Access table:

UPDATE Account SET AccountNumber = [Copy of QB Account Master]![AccountNumber]
WHERE (((Account.AccountNumber) Is Null) AND ((Account.ListID)=[Copy of QB Account Master]![ListID]));

and place the statement within a loop of the MS Access Copy of QB Account Master table rows. Which means you need to write some VBA code or you can execute DoCmd.RunSQL commands, see: Inserting invoice lines built from external data using MS Access or create a sub-procedure.

Here is an Invoice example:
