change linked sheet name

change linked sheet name
Views: 33
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.

Linking Excel Into Access Issue

Linking Excel Into Access Issue Icon
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

Linking cells with date format to Access Icon
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

Exporting to Specific Excel Sheet Icon
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.

-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
