Is there a way for an excel macro to open a access database & import a txt file straight to access (without importing to excel first) & then executing some other code e.g. copy query results(which i already have code for)
I have created a workbook which both imports data from an access database and exports data to same. Some of the data I need to access is dependent on parameters which the user will change in excel e.g. I need to extract PeriodID (ID for a month end date) based on a date in a speified cell in excel.
MS Query is a very handy way to achieve this as the wizards automate almost everything. However, this workbook will be shared on a common drive on a server (as will the database). Initial testing suggests that the connection and queries I'm making on my machine do not work on other people's machines.
What is the best way to achieve the queries in excel which query data from an Access Database, but will work on all machines accessing the sheet from a shared drive? Is there any way I can avoid writing complex VBA code for this? I have an awful lot of specific queries like the one I mentioned above to perform.
I need to create a new query that pulls data from a 2007 Access database into Excel 2007. When I invoke the 'From Microsoft Query' option after 'Data/From Other Sources', and then select 'MS Access Database*', the only file type presented is '*.mdb' . However, I need to pull from an '*.accdb' file type. I have both Office 2003 and Office 2007 installed.

I have two sets of data, lets call them 2013 and 2014. I have a Spreadsheet already set up in excel, but currently I just past this information into a tab in excel (which isn't ideal at all), and given the data is growing, is slowing down my excel spreadsheet a lot.
I have some experience with Access, SQL and queries.
What I have done thus far is to link my Access DB with Excel, run a query and paste the resulting table from the query into excel all using VBA (easy peasy).
The problem i have is that the table is still linked, and i do not want or need it to be linked. I know that there is a "Unlink" Option, which is not what i need, and also a "Convert to Range" option which is also not what i need, but closer. This got me thinking, is it possible to import the data into an array (all in VBA in excel from the query in the SQL) and then i can paste that information into my Excel spreadsheet, or is there a better method?
I have an excel file that imports data from an access database. Now the user wants the database password protected I edited my code to include the line "user ID=admin;password=risk;" but I'm getting an error message stating: "Cannot start your application. The workgroup information file is missing or opened exclusively by another user."
I'm bothered because I did not create a workgroup information file. I just want a password on the database I did not create users and groups.
Note this code works fine without the password protection and the added line.

The macro firstly formats the data that is pasted into it from an access database, then it does some calculations to determine when 10 working days from a specific date is, and when 20 working days from the date is (these go in new columns at the end of the data). The macro will also add new columns which say "Not resolved" if there is no date in the Resolution column, "Yes" in the "10 working days met?" column if the condition is met and the same for 20 workings days in a different column. As the colouring etc takes a long time I really wanted to add as conditional formatting to the macro!
how to attach a spreadsheet here then I can show you what the outcome we want is. A point to note is that there is not a set number of rows each time we do this, and I don't just want 1 cell to be coloured - I want to specify which cells in the row are coloured depending on the results in another cell on that row.
I was trying to move data from excel to access database in VBA. not sure if this has been done before.
What i have got at the moment is that there are some data in excel spreadsheet that i can dump into the table in the access database. My problem here is i need to be able to open the database first, set up connection, and then perform SQL insert query command.
So in the worksheet, i have a button with the following codes in it so far i could just manage to open the database as follows
I just wanted to know if there was a way to add the information contained within an excel form into an access database using a macro? What I am looking to do is automatically have the data added when I press a button, or when I close a worksheet.
i am trying to use VBA to query a access database that i have i want to be able to pull the information that matchs either textbox4 or 5 i am using the code below but i am getting global errors.
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click() Dim custname As Variant Dim Custnum As Variant Dim cnn As New ADODB.Connection Dim rst As New ADODB.Recordset custname = Range("TextBox5").Text Custnum = Range("TextBox4").Text With ActiveSheet.QueryTables.Add(Connection:=Array( _ "ODBC;DSN=Insolvency;Description=Insolvency;APP=Microsoft Office XP;DATABASE=Insolvency;Trusted_Connection=YES"), Destination:=Range("Listbox1")) .CommandText = Array("SELECT * FROM POST WHERE Customer_Account_Name=" & custname & " AND Customer_Account_Number = '" & Custnum & "' ORDER BY Customer_Account_Number") .Name = "Insolvency Post Query"..........................
I have an excel database which has some very basic formulas to multiply some numbers then divide them, the number are manually entered into the cells by myself, however I am getting these number from an MS Access DB manually copy and paste so I wondered, can I make excel automatically pull the number from the access database and if so where do I start?
I have created a 'price list' database in ACCESS. Then in EXCEL I created a pivot table which retrieves data from one of the database queries (the query was saved as a .dqy file).
I emailed the file containing the pivot table to a colleague who is on the same server. He saved the excel file on he desktop & renamed it. When I update the databse file on a shared public drive on the server, he is able to 'refresh' his desktop file successfully !!
I am using ADO to retrieve records from an MS ACCESS DB in Excel. All my queries work fine but I am having problems with subqueries. My subqueries work fine in ACCESS but when I execute them via ADO I get the following error message:'"The SELECT statement includes a reserved word or an argument name that is misspelled or missing, or the punctuation is incorrect".
with the correct syntax. Alternatively I was thinking of creating a view in ACCESS but that seems not possible.

Is it possible to "Autocomplete" a Vendors name in an excel cell from an Access Database of vendors and then perform a vlookup from the database for contact name, address, phone, email, etc.... in adjacent cells?
For example if I begin typing "Acc" then I automatically get a list of vendors from my vendor database in Access beginning with Acc to choose from, such as Accent Cabinet, Access Grage Doors, etc...
I have an access database that runs some excel subs. If the excel sub doesn't meet a certain criteria, I want to close the excel workbook and close the access database. Most google searches yield how to close excel from access but I need closing access from excel. I was thinking that if the "detonate" criteria was met, I could pass a variable over to access and terminate that way....
If x 5 then thisworkbook.close myaccess.accdb.close end if
if x 5 then appAccess.application.run "Self-Detonate" thisworkbook.close end if
I have made an invoicing system that when opened reads a record number and also pulls through some data from an excel document on our server. The user then inputs his information and clicks submit and this will write to the excel document updating the invoice no by one for the next invoice the problem is that this is slow as when writing to the excel worksheet it has to open the document update it then close and save the worksheet on the server. I am trying to speed this up by using a access database on the server but I am having trouble trying to work out how to do this as I have never communicated with another type of document. I found some code witch I am trying to modify but It comes up with a 424 error:
Code: Sub Auto_Open() Set conn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection") conn.Provider = "Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0" conn.Open "\TWKKLNGNational Electronics DocumentsWorksorder DatabaseElectronics Notification system.accdb"
I have an excel spread sheet that has a web query where it imports data to Sheet1 from a public website that requires a login I currently navigate from the websites index page where login in is located to my specific table ona different page I import the page and display it live in excel I want to save this data and put it into an access data base so I can go back and see what the numbers are at different point during the day. I want to export only certain cells from Sheet1 into fields in the access data base is this possible or can this all bee done with access?
I'm looking for a complete working example of how to write a single cell to a Access table using a SQL command. More to the point, i'm looking to UPDATE an access table field with a certain record ID with the current contents of a cell. I am using Excel 2003.
I would be most thankful you give you permission to marry my daughter.
I've been trying to make this work for hours and hours and am finally giving up. Most of this code was found on the internet and I've attempted to make it work for my project but I keep getting errors. I use VBA with Excel quite often but never with Access before. Currently I am getting an "Object doesn't support this property or method" error at rs.Findfirst.
I have an excel worksheet that mimics the access table with five fields, an ID field, lastName, FirstName, DeptID (int), Email. I want to search the Access table for a match on the email field, and if it doesn't find the match, to add a new record using values typed into the excel sheet.
Code: Sub UpdateDB() Dim cn As Object Dim rs As Object
I have an excel spreadsheet in which I must sort the data by program and then activity code. From that I need to know the number of consumers by activity code and their total units. I must then graph this by program. I have been debating on whether to use an excel pivot table, break the data in to multiple spreasheets to then graph it or shoud I upload the file into access.
i have a excel file which has a formatted pivot table which displays customers by country in row A 2 down to 36 with approx 36 customers in the values field i have volumes by alarms and tickets along the column labels it shows the previous 7 days with date and then the alarms and tickets in each row. My problem is i am trying to find the code or location where i can change the only bring back 7 days data to another value. i have searched all connection properties and definitions. I know there is a value somewhere that allows you to change this number to say from 7 days to 30 days. If you click on the column labels for date it shows the dates back 3+ years but it still if i tick more than 7 days only show 7 in the table.I have image if needed
I would like to know how to migrate an Access database to a spreadsheet, I do not mean Exporting.
More specifically, the migration is conditional. The spreadsheet only needs a few fields from specific tables in the database. It is basically a data dump, however, the magnitude of the amount of information that I will be handling will be far too time consuming and not within the scope of the budget to do this all by-- Exporting-->Copy-->Paste method.
Also, changes often need to be made "The night before..." so the macro will need to be able to ran possibly a number of times to update the additional data or changes in data.
In my research I have found a few snipets of VBA code from the MSDN website as well as some other websites, however none of it seems to be consistent with one another and ultimately results in it not working.
I have a database that has outgrown excel (over 77,000 rows now) so i now have it in Access. I want to replicate the following situation I used to have using lookups in excel with a query to the Access database: Paste a list of identifiers into an excel sheet. Values corresponding to the list are returned from the database in adjoining columns. The list can be from 10 to 300 cells long an returns data in 14 columns. I have had a go with the Import external data wizard which generates a query but have not been able to work out how to base the query on a list of cells in excel and have the query return values for each of the identifiers in the list.
=> and for my ms excel has its columns (year,month,date) in this if i input the date that is base in the database range from StartDate TO its EndDate will automatically put the month and year which base also in my database (year,MonthNum)
A1 B1 C1 Year Month Date A2=2014 B2=January C2=01/01/2014
