Microsoft Excel Sample Code

Function for using Access Automation

Access Automation is a very powerful technique where you can communicate with an access database from within VBA code in your Excel Document. This allows you to do some very powerful things, such as populating an existing database with data from your speadsheet, taking advantage of access tables you've already setup, dump data into a database and wide variety of other uses. The demo application below shows a very simple example of how to interact with Access from within your Excel Application.

The Microsoft Excel Access Automation Database is a sample database that shows you how to implement Access Automation inside your own Excel Spreadsheet.

Please note that this is a template database. If it doesn't meet your needs 100% and you're unable to customize it yourself, let us know and we'll provide a quote to develop the customizations you need to get you exactly what you want in your Excel Access Automation Database System.
