    Is Access the right tool for me?

    Hi all,
    I am wondering if Access is the tool I need form my solution.
    I am trying to make price tags via a template that would pull product info from a seperate excel Worksheet. What I'd like to do is have a template that I could enter a model number and have all model info pull over from Excel insert it into the template and then print...Hope this makes sense. Is Access the product I will need?

    Should work. You can link to the Excel sheet and then work with it like a table in Access. Build a report (the tag 'template') with the linked worksheet as RecordSource.

    Why not put the data in Access instead of Excel worksheet?
