automatic import of data
We are building a database to keep track of safety observations.
Everyday, excel files will be emailed to me with observation material (20 items).
I would like access to automatically ping my email, see the excel file and add to, not overwrite data in a table.
This would save tons of data entry as I may receive up to 50 email a day with the file. Also, would each file that comes in as an email attachment have to be named the same
Thank you for taking the time to report an issue.
What's wrong... Please write below.
I have difficulty in doing my database project. I have an excel workbook where users enter all the data in the cells. Later, from Access I need to import all the data that I have filled earlier in Excel. I know we would need to use Import wizard. It is tedious to do so moreover if the data in Excel is updated. So, I'm looking for help how to import the data from Excel to Access using VBA. Really looking for feedbacks
So how do I embed this. I would like to have a button in a form "Import Data" which activates the Import. Then, wenn the import is successfully completed, there should be a confirmation.
Additionally, I do not want that the import overwrites data, it should just add the new data. The Excel sheet will always remain in the same structure. I will just add some data on a daily basis.
Before attempting to import a spreadsheet or text data into a table in Access 2003, you should make sure that the spreadsheet you want to import has the same type of data in each field (column) and the same fields in every row, or that the data you want to import is arranged in an appropriate tabular format. Follow these easy directions to import a spreadsheet into Access 2003.

I need to create an import button for the database that allows users to import data from another databse. The code needs to allow the user to select tables, forms, queries, etc etc etc.
I know there is an import tool in external data heading, but I dont want the end user to have access to design features. If I can create code that replicates the import access data feature in "external data" heading. that would be great , "but how
Does access handle automatic column heading assigments for tables?
I have files that I am importing via VBA. As of now the column headings are the same, but in the future, they will change. I would like to continue to import the files into the same database and have access automatically create the new columns.
I tried a simple test and it didnt work
I have data in comma delimited files. I have a database shell that I want to import the text files into. The database shell (downloaded from the Census) contains import specifications for different types of data to import.
I can import each file one at a time manually and choose the correct import specification from a list of values. I want to patch together a macro or some code to automate the procedure because it is very tedious and easy to make an error.
I need it for my thesis research. I am less proficient with the code, I have created a few macros for other projects.

Maybe you have noticed that Excel spreadsheets do not always import data very nicely into Access. Sure, Access can import data from various sources with just a few clicks, but Excel files seem to give the most grief. Out of necessity, I created a code module that employs automation to loop through rows of an Excel spreadsheet and systematically add data to an Access table, cell by cell. While this is not exactly a "cut and paste" solution for your data import, it does provide a nice starting point.
