Import New, Changed Records

Import New and Changed Records. Update Pricing from Vendor.

 S  M  L  XL  FS  Join Now

In this lesson, we will take a product sheet that was sent by our vendor and import new products and price changes into our Access database. We'll learn how to create a permanent link to an Excel workbook. Review all the price changes and new products. Then create an update query to change our prices, and an append query to add new products.

Aaron from Brisbane, Australia (a Gold Member) asks: I get an updated product list in an Excel spreadsheet each month from my main vendor. I would like to import their data into my Access database, update unit cost for any existing products, and add new products to my table. Can this be automated? Right now it takes me an hour to type everything in each month.


I'll show you how to also check for deleted products and automate the entire process (all three queries) with ONE CLICK. We will also learn how to work with product markups so if the vendor's price changes, your sales price will be updated accordingly.
