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

Excel Import
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
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.

Access 2010 and Web Services (not using Sharepoint)
We need to install a database and make data accessible across the internet (via XML/txt or linked tables - can someone give me pointers on this ?

Microsoft's website has a page 'Creating a Web Service data connection' where Access 2010 can create a web service to a source and apparently link tables: the ribbon should have the path 'External Data tab > Import group > Web Service' but my 2010 has External Data > Import & Link > and no web service icon. So I cannot even investigate.

We would like a remote site to ask a question of the server, have the Access database run some selects and transmit to the remote client an XML /txt file etc.


Access 2010 Import Spreadsheet Wizard
I get the error message;

The Wizard is unable to access information in the file c:\Data. Please check that the file exists and is in the correct format.

The Excel file I am trying to import has a password but Access does not offer the option to input the password to allow the Excel file to be imported.

In Access 2007, the same files, Access would ask for the password to allow the import to proceed.

All of my Excel files are password protected. I have to remove the password on the file, import into Access, the replace the password in the Excel file.

Is this a security setting in Access I can change, or is there another answer?

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.


External Table not in expected Format
I'm setting up some vba to import a series of tables. They're saved as excel 97-2003 files but are a bit weird.

When I open them in excel, they say it's in a 'different format than that specified by the file extension' & so when access runs the vba, I get the 'external table not in expected format.' message.

I can open the excel file, save it & it will then import fine, but that's a pain to have to do every month for lots & lots of files.

The data is downloaded into excel from a currently unidentified system & the chance of getting the supplier to change them is slim, so is there a way to do a workaround -save excel before importing via access, different kind of excel imports etc to get it to work?

I'm current using acSpreadsheetTypeExcel9 as the excel type

Multiple Parameter Query from Excel
I have an Excel sheet that has data pulling from Access via Import External Data. I use 6 cells for Parameters Years, Months, Part Numbers etc. This works perfectly if each Parameter has only one criteria.

Can someone please suggest a Criteria that effectively allows me to enter more than one part number?
