Import External Data From Excel To Access 2010

Import External Data From Excel To Access 2010
Views: 19
I am trying to import an Excel spreadsheet into Access 2010. I have tried saving the file as 2010 and 2003 and either way I get an error that it cannot create the import table.

I have chosen the option to create a new table when importing with the wizard. At the end it fails everytime.

Are there any bugs in this import feature in 2010?

I don't think it is the spreadsheet

Automatically get Excel data

I have a worksheet with projects in Excel that I want to load in an Access database. I only want to import 3 columns though.
I managed to do this by using the get external data function (import) from Access. I get all the data nicely in a table. However, how can I make it so it refreshes the data when the DB opens? So if there are new records in the Excel worksheet, it will automatically put them in the table.

I tried using the link function from 'get external data' too, but it looks like I can't add any colums to the created table

While writing a new DB (Access 2010) I needed to import an Excel sheet and I noticed that there is absolutely no control over what columns are imported and which ones are skipped. I cant believe that any time we are going to import data we are forced to import the entire spreadsheet.

It seams like you can now just point click and hit finish, No OPTIONS

I need to be able to skip columns in excel sheets

From Excel, link to specific Access field

Preview
From inside Excel 2010, I want to link to a specific field in an Access 2010 db. I have looked at Excel's Get External Data / From Access, but it does not seem to do what I want.

In Excel, I will enter a function into a cell to specify the Access file, table, record and field to retrieve. The result will be displayed in Excel. Perhaps it would update every time I open the Excel file.
