    Is there any way to link an access database with an excel file such that when
    I change values in the access database it automatically updates the excel
    file? Is
    this remotely possible as it would save me from having to re-enter or paste a
    lot of duplicate information. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Take care

    Because of legal issues, you can no longer update Excel via linked tables in
    Access (see this link for more info:
    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/904953/

    You can import the Excel file to a table, modify the data then output it to
    Excel again, though.

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!
