Replicate MS Excel VLOOKUP Function in MS Access

I am converting several MS Excel spreadsheets into a single MS Access 2003 
database for an MS Excel User.

The MS Excel VLOOKUP query I am trying to recreate is as follows:


New MS Access Table Name:


Field names for MS Excel and MS Access are as follows:

MS Excel field:                                   MS Access Field:
A2                                                    Verify Config

"A2" is VLOOKUP function listed above

MS Excel field:                                   MS Access Field:
B2                                                    Config No

Example: "B2" / "Config No": MTU0301-0010

MS Excel field:                                    MS Access Field:
EG2                                                   Concatenated Config No_4

Example: Cell "EG2" / Field "Concatenated Config No_4" data:

MS Excel field:                                    MS Access Field:
EH                                                     Concatenated Config 

Note: Column "EH" was created as a copy of "EG" for the User's VLOOKUP 
function to work properly.  As a result, "Concatenated Config No_4_2" is a 
duplicate of the "Concatenated Config No_4" field data.

MS Excel field: MS Access Field:
EI                                                      Config No_2

Note: The User created column "EI" as a copy of the "Config No" field data 
for his VLOOKUP function to work.

The way this is SUPPOSED to work…………

If a new "Config No" being entered has a unique "Concatenated Config No_4" 
data the "Verify Config" field should store "Good" in that field.

However, if there is an existing "Config No" record that contains a matching 
"Concatenated Config No_4" data the resulting "Verify Config" field should 
record the existing "Config No" instead of "Good" in the working form.  If 
there is no "Concatenated Config No_4" data to compare for the newly entered 
"Config No" record, "No Data" should be recorded in the "Verify Config" 
field; the VLOOKUP function in MS Excel lists "#N/A" in Column "A" when this 

Side Note: If either the "Config No_2" or the "Concatenated Config No_4_2" 
are not necessary for the lookup and compare functions in MS Access I would 
like to delete them if possible to clean up a lot of unnecessary data in the 

I hope this was not too complicated to understand. It had to be explained to 
me several times for me to understand how the User's particular VLOOKUP 
function was supposed to work.

Any assistance would be GREATLY appreciated!!!

VB6 formula not working in excel
Hi, I have a few formulas embedded in my vb6 code which calculate and enter the results in the excel sheet. These formulas work for me and everyone at my workplace. But for some reason these formulas have recently stopped working for some of our model users in other countries. I noted that the problem is only with the formulas that are calculating the percentage, the rest of the formulas are working on the sheet. I also wanted to ask, is there a difference in using N/A and N?A in VB6? I should probably ask this question in the VB forum, but if anyone knows, please advise. Thanks, ...

Excel spreadsheet in Reports only works within network
I have a dynamic Excel spreadsheet that dynamically updates the data when the spreadsheet is opened. However, it only works inside the network because of the SQL connection string.

IMAP replication
Hi all, First post to this newsgroup. I am wondering if it is possible to have Exchange sync itself with an IMAP server. We have an in house Exchange server that is used to manage Contacts, Calendars, and Tasks, however mail is handled by an external IMAP server. The ideal solution would be to have the two kept in sync, so any changes made on the Exchange server would reflect on the IMAP server and vice versa for each user. Is this just a pipe dream?
