Import Objects with VBA
Thank you for taking the time to report an issue.
What's wrong... Please write below.
Currently, I have 3 tables that I update monthly manually by means of the Import Wizard, but I am looking to automate the process as much as possible.
At the least, I would like to hit a button in a form that imports a particular Excel file (the name doesn't change from month to month) and at least brings me into the import wizard.
I am just starting out in VBA,
When I import the objects into a new db the problems get solved except I do not have the ULS of the old database.
Can I import the database objects with current security settings?
Importing data through VBA code enables you to work with a variety of formats that is not available when you do it using the visual interface such as delimited text in a text file or data in a word table.
On a more practical level, if you need to make the same import every time, then simply creating a function to do the job for you will make the process faster and easier as opposed to going through the import wizard every time.
Second, to import an existing excel file and append it to an existing access table.
If I use the ribbon buttons to do this I get sorts of dialog boxes popping up - is it possible to write vba in which I can specify the various options, so it will do it seamlessly? -Either with or without making use of the Saved Import / Export feature?
These files all have different names but will always be found in the same location.
C:\Documents and Settings\computer\Desktop\F FILES
I have little VBA knowledge and am wondering if I can import these files into an existing Access table tbl_Table via a macro?
A number of problems:
1. It does not import directly into the existing table, instead it creates a new table tbl_Table , I'd like to import directly into the existing table without using append or similar.
2. I cannot get it to import ALL files in the folder.
3. I'd like to import the first 7 characters of the filename into a field (KEY).
I am making an access database to import this data and print transaction forms. I figured out most of it, and I use a saved import to import the xlsx in a clear table(new table with the same name).
However, the filename is changing and I want a filedialog to open on clicking the import button. Then I only want to import columns A to H, the rest of it is useless or my part of the member information.
How can I do this? I tried vba code from the MSDN library: ( the dialog part ),
But I didn't get this working.
The functionality will also need to use a saved import routine I created earlier.
I'm using Access 2010, but this will need to be compatible with 2007 as well
