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

Importing Excel 2007 spreadsheet into Access 2002

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?

Importing data from excel spreadsheet
These questions are regarding general situations for consolidating data into an Access database. Some data is contained in a database that has been created (or is in the process of being created) and other data was previously recorded in an Excel spreadsheet. I am trying to consolidate by importing the data from the Excel spreadsheet into the database.

First of all, I should be able to import it into the current Access table(s), correct? Since Access data is normalized into different tables and data in Excel are not, would I import appropriate columns into each individual Access table? Would I have to make the Excel spreadsheet have the same columns and be in the same order as the table(s) in Access? Or can I just import it as is on Excel and Access can figure it out? Also, the Excel spreadsheet does not contain the information that was captured on the later version of Access.

Secondly, are there extra steps/precautions to take when importing data from an Excel spreadsheet into an Access database designed with autonumbers? The Excel spreadsheet does not contain an autonumber. However, an autonumber will be required when this information is imported into Access. Do I have Access select the primary key in the table so that it can recognize this imported data or would I have to run a query afterwards to assign an autonumber?


Excel to Access 2010 Data Import Errors
I have tried many ways that I found on the web to solve this issue: when I import my Excel 2010 spreadsheet to Access 2010, the date field is coming back with type conversion failure on the date field.

I must say I am not found of Access, the last time when I used it it was in middle school :/ but unfortunately because of my job I need to use it more and more. damn databases. hahah.

Import Excel sheet with query
I import an Excel sheet with the following SQL statement.

SELECT T1.*, 1 AS SheetSource INTO [Excel Import]
FROM (Excel 12.0;HDR=NO;IMEX=1;Database=C:\Access2007\ODBC-Writeback\SFtest.xlsx) [TCM IMPORT - SF$A10:L65536] AS T1;

This works except that it also bings in any 'blank' cells that were in the Sheet. The first try brought in 24 valid records and 200+ blank records.
I created an additional query to delete all of the blanks but it would be nice to take care of it on import.
I have tried to add a Where clause for A10 Is Not Null but get a Syntax error with the cursor positioned on the semi-colon before the HDR paramenter

Custom Import from Excel
I am looking for some help with the following. I want to have the user select an excel file to import, once selected, the column headings in the excel sheet are displayed with ability to map each column to the correct column in an existing table in the access database. Then clicking ok would import the selected excel sheet into the appropriate columns in the access table.

My thought would be to import the excel sheet using transferspreadsheet and use the tabledef to get all the field names from the excel sheet and the destination table (destination fields in drop down) then run insert statement using the mapping.

VBA Code to import Excel File
Can anyone please supply me with some code which enables the user to import an excel file by clicking a button on the mail form, he is prompted for the file location and file name via thestandard import functionality selections.

Access 2010, Web Tables/Relationships, & Excel Imports
I am interested in knowing the best practices as it relates to setting up a web database and being able to import data when the lookup field is being as a number field. I can get an import to work correctly if I leave off the lookup field, but that becomes a problem when there are a lot of rows being imported and would have to go 1 by 1 to put the data in via the combo box dropdown. Is there a way to import data and still keep relationships in a web database? I am mostly familiar with Excel and VBA, but have some client side Access background (although a little rusty) in the past, but I am now learning web database features in my spare time to enhance my skills


Link from Excel to Access problems
I have created a link from Excel to Access and import my data to Excel from a query.

This all works fine, however when I close down Excel and then try and try and run the query in Access, I get the following message "The Microsoft Office Access database engine cannot open or write to the file "name of query here".

It is already opened and exclusively by another user, or you need permission to view its data.

I've never had the message before and has only presented itself after making the connection between Excel and Access.

I do not have any other Excel or Access files opened.

copy 2 Excel columns into an Access table
I have 2 columns in an Excel 2010. I need to select each column starting in row 10 (Column A and H). I need to select data until the first blank row (can't select entire column).

I need to import these 2 columns into an Access table (2010).

I'm working on a method, but it feels like maybe I'm overthinking it. I've created a macro in Excel to copy column A & H to a new Excel workbook. Then I'm doing an import into Excel. Is there a way to do this directly through Access (without the Excel Macro)?
