    Importing data into Access database from Excel textboxes

    Is it possible to import data from a couple of textboxes into an Access database from Excel, and if so, how??

    I basically want to click a button and the contents of the two text boxes go into an already existing Access database as a new row with the unique Id / Primary key entered automatically.

    All help greatly appreciated.

    These are textbox controls on an Excel worksheet?

    Yes, well they were. I got told that I couldn't use textboxes though but if I move the data into cells within another worksheet then I should be able to move the data into the database that way.

    I'm currently searching around trying to find out how to do that now...

    Textbox can be bound to cell or I suppose event code can save the input somewhere. I've never used textboxes in Excel.
