    Hello all,
    I'm a newbee on this site. And I have limited code writing experience.
    But I've been assigned a task that I think you all could help me out
    with.

    I need to achieve some data. The data will be saved in Excel files. I
    need to import that data into Access. Here's what i was thinking:
    1. Save in one central location.
    2. Have access import the files from there automatically.

    is that possible? Here is the descbrition of the files. Excel file will
    have contain an "Input" tab where user input data. Then I have a Macro
    which creates a flat file which I would like to upload to Access. The
    thing is that there may be a varity of files. (LOTS!!) With different
    names. Is there any way to automate that on a monthly basis?

    thanks!

    If you want to automate the process, you will need to write some code. While
    we may not do that for you, we can help guide you through the process.

    What you need to do is pick a directory and put your files in it. Loop
    through that directory, checking for the existance of Excel files. When you
    find them, begin using TransferSpreadsheet to copy the data to the relevant
    table in your database. Once your code is satisfied that the data is there,
    you can delete the spreadsheet and move to the next.

    You can also use either TransferSpreadsheet or OutputTo to move the data
    back into Excel for purposes of distribution.
