Is it possible to link Excel with access such that any changes made in
Excel will also occur in the access database? In other words, I need
to maintain a 2-way linkage between the 2, but I want all my data to

I understand that creating a Linked table in Access would accomplish
the linkage I want, but it creates problems when I link that table with

Select your range of cells in column A. Edit / Go to / Special / Blanks.
Type = and then press up arrow. Then hit Shift Enter.
If you are happy with this result, select the range again and Edit / Copy
then Edit / Paste Special / Values to fix the values in place.

Change your formula to use NA() if the cell is empty. For example:
To hide the resulting #N/A errors on the worksheet, you can use
conditional formatting. There are instructions here:

And I want to display the redirected console window, the question is:
If I display it(set Create_new_CONSOLE in createprocess and some flags

if i do not display, i can use the pipe communicating with the child
