    Automate Excel Import to Access Related Tables


    I have been successful using the DoCmd Spreadsheet object to import Excel data into an Access Table, pretty straight forward. But how do I apply the import data to related tables where I need to capture initial data and place into one of the related tables and capture other data and place into a second related table, all in the same database. Help Plz.

    Use the insert query to insert the imported data to the relevant table after the import.

    Automate Excel Import to Access Related Tables

    Thanks for your reply. My goal is to completely automate the process, import and update, using VBA. Were your referring to use the Insert Query in the VBA code or manually do it.. TIA

    If you want to automate the process,
    you must use access vba to execute the query.

    eg.
    Code:
    docmd.openquery "queryname"

    what is your purpose of importing data to related tables? If you intend making a relational tables on your database, you should learn database normalization, which basically says, you can relate any two or more tables wherein they have the same common ID or reference for that matter.

    for example:

    TABLE SUPPLIER:
    fields: SupplierID, SupplierName, SupplierAddress

    TABLE PRODUCTS:
    fields: ProductID, SupplierID, ProductName

    as you can see, you can related the two tables: supplies & products BY the SUPPLIERID which they have in common.

    Automate Excel Import to Access Related Tables

    Because I already have existing related tables in the database and now I have to capture Excel worksheet data and append the information to those
    tables.

Please reply to this thread with any new information or opinions.
