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

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.

import text specification
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.

Import Data from Microsoft Excel
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.

Importing data with leading zeros
We recently upgraded from Access 2003 to 2010. I have a table that I overwrite each month with new data from a tab delimited text file. There is a field in the table that I have formatted the data type as text. In the previous version of Access I could import the data and it would keep any leading zeros during the import. Now it is dropping the leading zeros when I import the data even though I have specifically formatted the data as text.

Does anyone know how I can import my data and keep the leading zeros

Importing Data From Excel
I need to import data from several different worksheets within the same Excel workbook into an Access database. I can't figure out how to import more than one sheet at a time. All the sheets have the column headings. I can import the first sheet, but when I try to import the second sheet Access tells me there is an error. It doesn't tell me what the error is though, so I can't go about trying to fix it. If there is a way to do this, I would like to import all the sheets at once
