    LINKED TABLE WOES (ACCESS XP)

    I linked a table from Excel in my access db and can make changes just fine in my excel table that show up in the access table just great. I thought that I could also make changes in the access table and they would also reflect in my excel spreadsheet but when I try to do any editing in access table I get the "Deleting data in a linked table is not supported by this ISAM." I looked around Microsoft and google but could not find anything I can do about this. Thought I would pose this to you experts... I REALLY want to do flop back and forth from Access and Excel...how best to do it that if I cannot edit in Access? Export and reimport back and forth from Excel to Access? I am not great at code but will try new things.

    You can use the TransferSpreadsheet command in VBA to import or export data from/to Access.

    Re: LINKED TABLE WOES (ACCESS XP)

    In a linked Excel table in an Access database, you can
    <UL><LI>Edit existing records (including deleting the contents of fields)
    <LI>Add new records[/list]You can not delete existing records. To do so, open the source workbook in Excel. There is no need to export the table from Access to Excel and then re-import it. If you delete a record (row) in the source workbook, this will be reflected in the linked table in Access the next time you open it.
