    Manage Autoupdate from Script

      Manage Autoupdate from Script

      Post

       I am trying to find a way of accessing the 'manage database' from a script.   I have a Members database which is maintained by a number of people.   We do not rely on internet connections as we all go sailing, but can send small emails.   The database is maintained by sharing an excel spreadsheet and we simply erase all and re-populate.   However, one of the fields is 'Date Last Updated' and this is set to autoupdate whenever a change is made to the record.  

      Currently, I turn the autoupdate off before the import so it retains the old data, but we are getting more people involved now and want to do this 'out of sight' with a script maybe.

      Any advice?

      Thanks.
