I was trying to share my backend database to SharePoint, but keep running into issues. One is it seems that they are protected column names such as title. It appears I cant have any field with that name. I also find that certain tables just dont seem to upload at all and I dont get any error message. Once I attempt the upload and it isnt successful I then have to spend quite a bit of time deleting the lists including deleting any relationships on SharePoint which seems to take quite a bit of time. Any help would be much appreciated! So far it has just seem to be a rabbit hole of time spent without much success :(
Hi Gary. Yeah, I talk about that a lot in the Beginner lessons (which I see you skipped, ehem) - about what to NOT name your fields (Name, Date, Title, Picture, etc.) there are a lot of Access reserved words to avoid. Go thru and rename whatever fields you might have to. Any other specific problems feel free to post em.

Thanks! One question I had is about dual primary keys. I have some VBA based on error handling if the user tries to save a duplicate of both keys in a form. Can this work in uploaded SP tables?

The VBA is running on your front end, not the back end with the tables. There should be no difference It will still lookup your values in the table and throw messages if you program it. The only change is sometimes you have to change your syntax to be able to speak to the service hosting the back end.

Thanks for the reply! I just didn't know if SharePoint supported dual primary keys, but it sounds like it does :-)
