Link Access to an Excel Sheet to Read Live Data

 S  M  L  XL  FS  |  Slo  Reg  Fast  2x  |  Bookmark Join Now

In this video, I will show you how to have Microsoft Access create a linked table to a Microsoft Excel worksheet. This will allow you to read data from the sheet and is continuously updated in real-time when changes are made to that sheet.

Ronnie from Olympia, Washington (a Platinum Member) asks: My sales department keeps a spreadsheet on the network that contains all of the new customers for the month. Is there any way I can open that sheet up from Access to view their data? I'd like to query that against my existing data I have in Access, but I don't want to have to keep importing their sheet over and over again.


Members will see how to get a value from a specific cell on a specific sheet in a specific workbook without linking to the sheet as a table. We will use VBA and automation to get the value of whatever cell you want (even named cells).

Brent from Tracy, California (a Gold Member) asks: Is it possible to link to one cell in an Excel workbook which has multiple sheets? For example, the first sheet we will call TAB1 and the second TAB2. I would like to link to a value that is in cell B6 on TAB2. Would this be possible?
