Importing Data From Access Database Without Linked Tables
Jan 6, 2014
Bar those who don't believe/celebrate in Christmas, Hope you all had a good Christmas and New Year celebrations.
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 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 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
In Excel 2007, I have a tables linked from Access 2007. I frequently delete and import a new set of data into Access, then refresh the Excel file. Most of the time this works, but I've noticed sometimes one column doesn't refresh (even though I can see it in Access). If I modify the field name in the Access query, then refresh the table in Excel the newly named field is added in the in the last column of the table with current data. The column that wasn't refreshing stays the same.
When I originally created the link in Excel, I added various columns with formulas, but do not edit the columns that are imported from Access.
I need to import data from an Access table (which is straightforward enough), but there's a snag. All the rows are dated (10 rows per day) and I want to start from a specific date and get everything after that date.
Anyone any ideas if this is possible and, if so, how to do it?
which databases people are using with importing excel data into a database.
I want to know people's experiences on different databases and suggestions on which database i can use maybe.
On this moment i do everything in excel, but excel is not longer working properly because of large files that need to be connected to 1 or more sheets.
This is the situation now:
VAX (Dos bases database) -> Comma seperated Files -> Importing in Excel -> Linking the data to sheets. Now I want to have a database where i can do all normal operations to have a good look and the situation of stock status, ordered parts, sales etc. (inventory control)
Who has experiences with databases ? And what are you doing with that database?
When I copy or import data from access to excel, excel does not read the cells as numbers or letters. If I type the value over the access letter or number, then it reads it. Is there a way to copy or import it so excel can read it?
I can't use =Value(A1) because the data contains both letters and numbers.
I have an acess database where I export the data into a blank excel workbook and then copy and paste the data into a report file. My goal is to automate this process and my first thought was to add a button into the access database and have it export to an excel template, but using/editing the access database is not an option, so, that leaves me thinking about automating this process from excel. Is it possible to export data from an access database into cell A1 of a tab?
I'm having some issues importing external data from an Oracle 9i database. Here is what is happening:
I am initially able to import data from the table I want to into Excel. I do this through "Data -> Import External Data -> New Database Query" where I have my .ORA data source. I'm able to log in using my user and password and import the table. My problems come after I import this first set of data.
If I try to "Edit Query…" I get an error box that says "[Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Driver's SQLSetConnectAttr failed".
If I try to "Refresh Data" I get two error boxes. The first is just: "[Microsoft][ODBC driver for Oracle][Oracle]" and the next says: "[Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Driver's SQLSetConnectAttr failed". It then prompts me for the User name and password of the DB I'm connecting and after I enter the information, I get the same two error messages.
Also, if I attempt to establish another connection following the "Data -> Import External Data…" steps I run into a different problem. Upon entering the information for the User Name and password prompt I get two error messages. One says "!" and the next box says "Couldn't read this file". Once I click "OK" in those boxes, the Microsoft Query window automatically opens with nothing in it.
I can't seem to figure out why I can initially pull down data and then cannot succeed afterwards. I'm unable to connect to the DB I have through Excel until I completely closed all Microsoft Excel instances.
I also use this data source in Microsoft Access without any problems.
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 am using VBA to export an access query into excel, the query works fine in access but when importing the data into an excel spreadsheet, it doesn't display the date column headers in the correct format.
The problem I have is that the dates 1 to 12 are displayed the wrong way round eg:
In Access date column headers from query are: 09/01/2008, 11/01/2008, 12/01/2008, 14/01/2008, 15/01/2008 etc.
But when exporting to excel, the above dates are shown as: 01/09/2008, 01/11/2008, 01/12/2008, 14/01/2008, 15/01/2008 etc
It seems to be changing round the dd/mm when I export, but only upto 12 when the day is 13 or more it is displayed correctly.

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 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.

I'm trying to access ISeries data through Excel pivot tables.
Two weird issues, one is preventing what I'm trying to do.
1. After I set library list and saw my list of files, I didn't see ALL the files in the library, just some of them. Where are my missing files?
2. I found the file I needed and selected it. The file has 15 fields. When I got my field list in my pivot table, there were only 13 fields, and one field I need is missing. I noticed the missing fields are my packed numeric fields.
Is that a limitation of Excel, that it can't pull in packed numeric fields, or is there some way to get those fields without changing the file field definitions on the iSeries?
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 am working on creating a medical master database. I have a master sheet with a huge number of columns. I have a couple of guys working with me, and they have their own sheets in the workbook.
So here is what I would like to do: anytime one of the guys enters data into his respective worksheet, I want the data to be copied over to the master sheet in a new entry.
The columns among the worksheets are different, and I would like the data to automatically sort in the appropriate column on the master sheet when it is copied.
I have attached a copy of the workbook.
I have included an example of what I would like to see. For example, if Charles puts in an entry in his worksheet, a new entry is created on the master sheet with the information from Charles' sheet sorted in the appropriate columns.
I need multiple users, each with their own Workbook to utilise data from a central database I made in Excel. I therefore need to put the central Excel database online and link to it. However, two issues so far:
1) I don't have an online domain or server to put it, nor the possibilities to get one quickly
2) Putting the central database into SkyDrive/OneDrive haven't been working so far, as the links are always local and not addressed on the OneDrive server domain.
Therefore my question:
Is there any way I can use the cloud power of OneDrive to host a (fairly simple) database without my computer being turned on and running the workbook?
I have to import data into Excel from Access (yes, I have to import it to Excel and cannot use Access exclusively). When I import; however, the formatting does not come over correctly, most especially losing the formatting of numbers. I need one of two solutions:
1.) How to get the formatting to move over correctly?
2.) Or how I can save the formatting of a table, then be able to apply it as a "saved" format? The biggest thing is that the numbers will changed the number of decimal places and/or change from general numbers when I want to see them as currency.
The top table shows how i want this formatted, the bottom shows how it is importing.
I am trying to use a pivot table to track the number of H, M, and L difficulty projects carried by each employee. The pivot table appears to set itself up correctly, listing the names of each employee and recognizing that the possible entries are H, M, and L. The attached image "Capture" shows the results of one project leader.
The problem I have is that it does not show correct project totals, it shows "0" for every entry. For example, instead of showing "15" H level projects for BGa, it shows "0".
If I manually enter an "L" into the overview sheet instead of a link to a cell in the individual project spreadsheet, that entry will show up in the pivot table totals. In the attached image, I manually entered 4 L level entries into the project, but there are several more H,M, and L ranked entries assigned to this employee that aren't included in the sum. I have tried using "Count" and "Sum" in the pivot table properties without success.

I'm trying to use VBA to automatically change the data displayed in an excel chart. To do this I count the number of items displayed on the chart using Chart.Seriescollection.Count. I then loop over the Chart.Seriescollection(x) and try to change the Chart.Seriescollection(x).Formula string to link to the cells I want.
Problem is that, sometimes, the cells the curve is currently linked to are empty. Such a curve does show up in the Count, but I can't access the .Formula, even though this can be done manually from within Excel.
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.
