Trying to run a macro in Excel from inside Access
I've been opening comma delimited files in Access, used an Excel function to re-save those files in .xls which Access readily understands, then opening said files and running a query on them to organize them.

Now the file needs to go to Excel where it is entered into a worksheet with a certain heading.

Problem is when opening the .xls converted file in Excel, no macros show up. If I open a blank worksheet in Excel my macro shows up. I lowered the security settings to the most basic level in Excel.

How do I make the macro show up in the file opened in Excel through the Access VBA, so I can run it?


Peforming Excel operations via Acces automation
Access 2007 issue, however could relate to earlier versions.

I have an Excel template that has a series of blank rows

Row1 headings
row 2 headings
rows 3 to 30 blank rows
row 34 formulas to sum values in columns =Sum(B4:B33)

Repeated about 5 times further down the worksheet

Access opens the workbook and uses CopyToRecordset to populate Excel from row 4 downwards. Will never be more than 30 rows.

But what I want to do is when the copy has taken place I want to remove blank rows when a row in column B is blank.

What I did was something like

For X = 4 to 250
If Range("B" & X).Value = "" Then
delete the row
End If Next

But could not get it to work


Troubleshoot exporting in Access
I do not see any entries for MicrosoftOffice Excel 2003 in the Files of type box when I start the export operation. I exported data to an Excel spreadsheet, but now I see green triangles and strings that begin with "#" in the spreadsheet. When I export to Excel, the graph objects are missing in the worksheet. Data is in the wrong column in the resulting Excel worksheet. The worksheet is showing null values instead of date values. I see only "#" in an entire column in my Excel worksheet after the export operation is complete. I exported a form to Excel, but the subforms are not in the worksheet. I don't see any of the pictures that are in the original report int the resulting Excel worksheet. Memo fields are truncated during the export to Excel operation. Report totals are missing in the worksheet to which I exported an Access report. I get the message "Unable to read file" when I export to Excel. I get the message "Too many rows" when I export to Excel. File extensions don't show up beside the file names in the Save As Type dialog box. I'm not able to link my database objects to Microsoft IIS or Microsoft ASP files.


Importing the second excel worksheet

Import, export, and link data between Access and Excel
You can share data between Access and Excel in many ways. You can copy data from an open worksheet (worksheet: The primary document that you use in Excel to store and work with data. Also called a spreadsheet. A worksheet consists of cells that are organized into columns and rows; a worksheet is always stored in a workbook.) and paste it into an Access datasheet, import a worksheet into an Access database, or simply load an Access datasheet into Excel using the Analyze it with Excel command. This topic explains in detail how to exchange data between Access and Excel by importing, exporting, or linking to data.

Importing excel file to append a table
Is the record is already existing in access, but a few fields are blank, is there any way to import an excel file that just updates those blank fields for the specific record?

For example,

I have an excel file that includes files that are ready to ship out. My access database already has those file names, but does not have the shipping box number. Is there any way to importthe excel file into my database, have it find those specific file names and update the shipping box number field? The excel file won't be adding any new records,


Macro to paste data from Access Tables to Ms Excel
Please find attached sample MS Acces db and Ms excel file.

I need the data from the 3 Access tables to be populated across to the three tables as shown in the MS Excel file.

Assume the file path of the excel file is: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\microsoft\Sample_File.xls

so the table Sample_Data_1 gets populated across to MS Excel worksheet Records_1 C11:F14 and so on.

In the original file I have a sub form which runs the macro.


How do I Import Multiple Excel Files' Data Using Filters
I have thousands of excel files in one directory. I want to build up the Access table from excel files.
Each excel file has one worksheet, but I don't need every column and low of the worksheet.

I am trying to import a FILTERED Excel worksheet of every excel files in that directory into an access table using visual basic code.

I was able to build up (someone helped me) visual basic code to import multiple excel files to one single Access table without FILTERING.

Someone can say that I can just import without filtering and do query in Access.
The problem is that each excel worksheet has too many row and columns that I don't need it, and I need to import thousands of excel files to one access table. Eventually I will face Access table size problem.

I need to improve my visual basic code to import only selected rows and columns that I want to import into Access table.

Pulling Dates from 3 different columns
I have a query that pulls data & dates from other tables (Note, the tables are actually linked Excel Worksheets). On my query I have 3 date columns; "DUE", "REVISED", and "ESD". What I'd like to do is create a single column that will pull the correct dates accordingly: Always pull from the "ESD" column unless it is blank.

If it is blank then pull from the "REVISED" column. And, if the "REVISED" column is blank,

This is the formula I am currently using, however it is showing blank cells where it should be showing a date:

DUE DATE: IIf(Not (IsNull([ESD])),[ESD],IIf(Not (IsNull([REVISED])),[REVISED],[DUE]))

I'm thinking the blank cells are coming up because of incorrect formatting possibly on excel worksheet. I've tried changing the formatting to DATE on the excel worksheet cells, and as soon as I link it again with Access it shows the "REVISED" column as TEXT rather than DATE.

Excel Automation Select Range Only with Data
Have some Access code using Excel Automation that pastes data from a query into Excel. I want to then be able to select all data that is in column F.starting with F1.

The data in column F will vary, but will be contiguous. So, at any given run of the code, column F could be populated from F1:F5 or at another time F1:F10 etc.

Once selected, I want to shade the range.

Any Access code automation help for this is appreciated.!


Using VBA to select/copy xls data into Access
I've been trying numerous methods of getting an Excel worksheet into Access 2003 via VBA to no avail. Transferspreadsheet doesn't work (Excel data problems) but manually copying the sameExcel data then Paste Appending into the Access table works fine.

So, what I'd like to do in VBA is to select and copy all the data in the first worksheet then Paste Append into a named table. I'm ok with establishing a connection to Excel and selecting the necessary xls but am stumped as to how you select and copy data in the first worksheet.

Also, but how do you get the name of the worksheet via VBA?

Opening Excel Database directly
With limited features of Database Functions also built into it with the power of Filter, Sort etc. This is where we step in to introduce a Table in Excel for our new example for Reading/Updating the Excel data from Access.
Even though there are facilities in Excel to implement general database rules for creating and maintaining a table it is often not followed. It is left to the user to decide how to create a worksheet and how to create a database when both can go into a single Worksheet side by side.
