Zip Unzip Files

Zip/Unzip Files and Folders with MS Access VBA


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

In this Microsoft Access tutorial, I will show you how to automate zipping and unzipping files using VBA, simplifying file management for Access databases. Learn to programmatically unzip your vendor's frequent product updates and zip your own files for efficient storage and transfer.

Curtis from Mansfield, Texas (a Platinum Member) asks: I get an email with product pricing updates from my major vendor a couple of times a week, and it comes as a zip file with a bunch of text files in it. I know how to automate the process of importing the data, but I still have to manually unzip the file after I save it to my disk. Is there a way I can have Access automatically just unzip the file so I can then run the import?
