    I have 2 tables both which I need to import data into. I have 2 xls
    spreadsheets per day and I need to import all the data and build it up over a
    period of time so that I can use the database to analyse the data. There are
    around 2000 records per file but I can't seem to import the data unless I
    select the option to create a new table each time or unless I copy and paste
    the data. I need to be able to timport one after the other into the same
    table but I keep getting an error message just saying an error occurred file
    not imported.

    How can I import this data??

    Hi, Matt.

    The Spreadsheet Import Wizard isn't very helpful when imports fail. Convert
    the spreadsheet to a CSV file and then use the Import Text Wizard instead.
    When it fails, at least you can check the YourTableName_ImportErrors table
    for a list of the records that failed and the reason why.

    For more information on the methods to avoid this problem, please see the
    following Web page for a link to the article, "Spreadsheet Import Wizard
    Error":

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
