Default SELECT from SELECT query?

I have a lot of queries which are along the lines of


We've added a limitation to the CUSTOMER table (and renamed it to CUSTOMER_MASTER) and now need to do a SELECT from a SELECT. We had done a search/replace in our central query module so that the above becomes:


This would (I am pretty sure) work with SQL, but Access complains of an error in the FROM. Re-writing all the queries isn't an option because there's a serious quantity of them, which is why we opted for a search/replace in the query module (a set of functions that are passed a query and return the recordset).

Hope this explains things and any help would be appreciated.

When you change table names, there really is not shortcut to properly updating the queries. IMHO, All the queries should be fixed not patched. Your solution seams to be a harder way and will probably slower executing.

You may want to consider the product Speed Ferret.

You may also find this useful:

Public Sub UpdateFieldNameInQueries()

Dim qdf As DAO.QueryDef 'Note: you may need to set a reference to DAO

Const cFrom = "BRANCH ID"
Const cTo = "BRANCH_ID"

With CurrentDb

For Each qdf In .QueryDefs

qdf.SQL = Replace(qdf.SQL, cFrom, cTo,,,vbTextCompare)

Next qdf

End With

End Sub
