Build Your Own Excel Import Wizard

Danny Lesandrini

Working with Excel spreadsheets is a natural evolution for any Microsoft Access solution. The Import Wizard that comes with Access works with simple files but if the spreadsheet is irregular in any way, you're going to need to use Automation. This demo will show you how to interrogate a spreadsheet to make importing the data simple. Also included is an explanation of how to build a table for your import using DDL SQL statements. When we're done, you'll have an Import Wizard on Steroids.
