Link to Excel

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

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?

Silver Members and up get access to view Extended Cut videos, when available. Gold Members can download the database template from class plus get access to the Code Vault.

You're right. I forgot about that one. I'll add it to the Links section. Thank you.
