Create a command button in Excel that automatically exports a row(s) from the spreadsheet into an Access database. RRS feed

  • Question

  • All,

    When I search for this request, I get a lot of advice on how to import an Excel spreadsheet into Access, but not much on exporting an Excel spreadsheet (a range really) into Access.  I want to do this as a command button where:

    User Imports rows into Excel from Access (already done).

    User makes modifications to rows in Excel.

    User clicks a button to send updated information from Excel back into Access.  

    There will be no rows added here only updated.  I know that it might be better to do all of the work in Access, but I am limited for time to revamp the whole process as opposed to making this one change.
