    Workaround for editing Linked Tables


    So the majority of my table data comes from linked tables. Is there a workaround for editing data in linked tables.

    Tables in access that are linked to tables from excel sheets are read-only. I want a way for users to edit data that comes from a linked table.

    Cannot directly edit data in linked worksheets from Access. Period. VBA code can open Excel objects and manipulate those objects, even modify data. This can get very complicated.
