change linked sheet name

I have Access programs that are linked to Excel spreadsheets. Due to circumstances beyond my control the sheet names have been changed and I will have to use the new names in my programs.

I have tried to go into Link Manager but it does not let me change the sheet name only the file name.

Does anyone know an easy way to change the Sheet name in a linked Excel spreadsheet without messing up the connections in queries etc.

Create a linked table from excel using VBA
I have 10 different sheets in a workbook and I want to make link the two sheets to my database which are sheet 1 and 10. In linking the sheet 1 I am using this code:

DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acLink, , "Sheet1", "Workbook1", True

Is there any way to put the Sheet name to be linked? My problem is how to link the Sheet 10 using vba.


Linking Excel Into Access Issue
I am using Acc 2003, but Acc 2007 should work the same (I think).

I have linked an excel spreadsheet into my Access database. Almost all of the fields are available and can be read.

There are a few fields that I can see in Access, but its in Excel sheet. These fields were using a VLookUp function in excel to get the value from another excel worksheet.

Also the linked excel sheet has fields that I believe should be text (in Access), but its was set to be a number. I am unable to change this.

Is there a way to resolve this issue for me ?

I also assume that if I was to read each cell in the excel sheet and convert it into text files using VBA code, that should resolve the issue.

Linking cells with date format to Access
I have an Excel sheet linked to Access 2007. This way when I update the Excel sheet, the queries in Access update automatically.

I have a problem with a field with date format in the Excel sheet. The query result in Access linked to this sheet, shows the value of the cell in numbers, that is the numbers that represent the date.

In Excel for eg. 23/02/2006 is equivalent to 37309. My Access query shows 37309.

What can I do so that my Access database shows the field in date format?


Exporting to Specific Excel Sheet
What I am trying to do is EXPORT a query to an Excel Workbook which is read only and I need the data to land in a specific sheet in the excel workbook.

I have tried transferspreadsheet vbcode etc. but nothing works quite right and the fact the spreadsheet is Read Only does not help.

The Name of the Query is "Accrual"

The Name and location of the Excel Spreadsheet is "c:\register.xls"

The Sheet inside the workbook is called "data".

I need the data to land in the "data" sheet over the top of the previous data and not create a new sheet or mess with the forumales that are linked to the "data" sheet.

Removing duplicates & printing uniques
I currently have an excel sheet that is over 1 million rows of words. When I first began this job I didnt think I would need to work in Access or a DB, but now it seeems I do. I was wondering if I could get a quick tutorial doing something very simple.

-I have a master excel sheet (A)
-then over a few days I collect a few tens of thousand more keywords and put it into sheet (B)

All I want to do is:
-compare sheet A with sheet B
-remove words in B if already in A
-print out the unique words in sheet B (non duplicates)
-Lastly uniques of sheet B added to A


Record the change and playback them as a video
I have one form which I need to record the change that may happen to this Form for the last 10 minute (this form was created by VBA code and take his information from an Excel sheet,this form has different values which go up and down based on the value we entered in the excel sheet), and I would like to be able to playback this change in a video.

I need to record all of these changes and be able to go back and see all this change for the last 10 minute as it happened now by pressing a command button called playback.

I mean it is like someone videoing your action for the last 10 minute and play them back.


Connecting to database via ODBC
I am working with an Access 2003 application, which consists of some linked tables. These are linked via ODBC. My question is: Is there any way to edit the odbc connection for all of these instead of changing for each linked table? If I want to change the database this is very time consuming. I do not want to change the odbc configuration on the computer itself.

Change connection string of linked table
I want to change the filepath of a linked table in VBA.
So far I've got this:-

Sub test()
Dim tbl As TableDef
For Each tbl In TableDefs
If Len(tbl.Connect) > 0 Then
...
End Sub

As far as I can make out, checking the Connect property tells me if it's a linked table, but I'm not sure how to change just the path part.


Changing the connection information on a linked QUERY in Access 2007
This is about linked queries, not linked tables. With no linked tables, the Linked Table Manager is disabled.

I know how to see the connection of a linked query, linked to SQL Server: ?CurrentDB.QueryDefs("create").Connect
"ODBC;DRIVER=SQL Server;
SERVER=PRODSERVER;DATABASE=proddatabase;Trusted_Co nnection=Yes"
I need to change the server name in the connection.

I tried in the Immediate window
CurrentDB.QueryDefs("create").Connect = ".test server name."
but that did not change the connect property.

How do I change the connect property?


Import a specific excel sheet from list of sheets in workbook using Access VBA
I'm importing data from Excel to Access using Access VBA which works fine that sheet name is first sheet in workbook. However, if multiple sheets exists in the workbook and that particular sheet can be 2 sheet, 3 sheet or any sheet.

In that case how to search particular sheet name and import in access. Below is the code I have used for importing the data.


Access(ing) Excel data (pun intended)
I have a data acquisition program that stores plant data in real time, and daily totals in Excel. I have built a workbook that complies this data, and is linked to a report sheet that does the calculations.

Some of the data for the reports must be manually entered into the cells, as they are not in the DAS.

I am in the process of moving the stored data to an Access database. In the process, I want to automate the reporting process. I have a Excel sheet that linked to the cells needed in the DAS Excel sheet, and to the manually entered values.
Ex.
GROSSMW AUXMW FUEL STEAM
124, 7, 28, 768 I know the columns did not look right in this ex. but they are correct in the Excel file.

In this example, the GROSSMW and AUXMW are manually entered into a cell, and the FUEL and STEAM are linked to the DAS Excel sheet and transfer the values automatically into these cells.

What I want to do is, have the user go into Access on a form and have the DAS values populate their respective fields, Then be able to click a command button to save the form data to the access database.

I already have the Excel sheets built that will get the requested data from Access and populate the reports. I am justunsure how to make Access and Excel communicate like I want them to.


Transferspreadsheet by Sheet number, not sheet name
The sheet number 2 is constantly made with different names and I was wondering if the transferspreadsheet command would be able to pick out data by the sheet number instead of the sheet name.

Import Excel File using a Macro
I need to create a Macro in Access that will allow me to import an excel file into an access database.

The requirements are:
-The code should allow me to choose whether the first row has fields
-Browse the Excel file (cannot be specific because this excel file may change)
-Choose the Excel file and specific sheet to transfer (cannot be specific because this sheet may change)
-Skip 'n' rows in order to get to the data of the excel table
-Transfer the sheet into an access table
-Delete original file that was imported

I attached what I have so far but it's missing two requirements: Skipping rows and being able to choose a specific sheet instead of just a folder that contains the excel file.
