    Hi, I have a customer contact spreadsheet with a different tab for each step in the contact process. I want to convert to Access for efficient reasons. Is there an automated way to transfer the Excel recordss to Access and then using the flat file entries to get into related tables?


    Many thanks Darren.

    You can create linked tables in Access that connect to each of the tabs in the Excel spreadsheet. But then you'd have to write append queries based on these linked tables to properly populate your Access tables.

    Thanks Mark, that helps, I'll need to clean the Excel files first though.


    Cheers, Darren.
