    Linking Access Table with already imported External Data (Excel)

    Hi everyone,

    I would like to know how could i link an Access Table with the table that has been importeed from Excel in Access.

    The Excel data has been imported into Access. So right now i would like to make a new Access Table so that i could link both of them.

    The Excel table will get new data and will be refreshed in Access.

    Could anyone give me a solution please. It's very important for my thesis.

    Thank you.

    Quoted from this article,

    As of October 2005, an automatic upgrade for Access 2002 and 2003 made changes to Excel through linked tables impossible. If you rely on this technology, your databases will fail when your users install this upgrade.

    So, there is no way now to use access to update excel.

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