Data in Tables updates every 15 mins

I receive data every 15 mins in an Excel database format in the form of an 
attachment to an email..    

I would like to be able to use this file as a dynamic base file used in an 
ACCESS file/program.  

Any ideas on how to get this data in the email attachment into Access every 
15-30 mins automatically?

You will need to break this task into bite-sized chunks, and conquer each 
task. I would start by trying out Helen Feddema's sample:

     Saving Email Attachments to an Access Table  (See # 123)

Hopefully, the structure of the spreadsheet remains constant (column names, 
position of columns, etc.). It will also be helpful if the spreadsheets 
include defined data ranges, which you can include as an optional parameter 
in DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet method.

Mounting old Data Stores
Hi. Due to problems with Win2003 SBS, I did a reinstall of Win2003 SBS sp1 from original CD-s. Before 'deleting' the old Windows, I made an ASR tape backup of the running server. It seams the ASR backup backed up only drive C: with all relevant data. As other data were on drive D: (Exchange data files, SQL data files,...), I backed up the D: drive too to a separate tape in a separate ntbackup session. Before the backup I used Exmerge to export all users mailboxes. Later I imported those mailboxes in a new Exchange installation. Unfortunately the user forgot to told me, they hav...

Import external data-text files but placed in the next column rather than next empty row
I want to import text files in to one worksheet. The text files are sent daily and all the same format. However the text file names change buy an incremental number. Is it possible to create a macro that imports these text files, ignoring their exact filename but from the same source directory into one worksheet. Can you use wild cards for the name e.g. "********.txt"? At the moment I can manually do this, by selecting the cell below the last record then using the process "Get external Data" and following the wizard which works fine. As soon as I try to create a m...

Plotting 1 curve from 2 separate x-axis data
I have stock portfolio info for January thru June, which plots easily. After portfolio changes, I have another plot for July thru December. Plots easily. These data are on 2 separate worksheets. Now I would like to plot a single curve for the year. The first 6 months is easy. How can I plot a continuous curve for the whole year without having to insert the first 6 months worth on the last 6 months worksheet? Not sure I explained this very well, but --- Dave The easiest way is to have both sets of data on one (a new?) worksheet. Then you can plot as with one or two series. Copy a...

Why can't I find a table in the lookup wizard?
Using Access 2007, I need to create a lookup field for an existing table, but it is not listed when creating it. Jenni, I can't tell by your posting, are you trying to create a circular reference? Look-up field using the same table you are creating the field in? Well, I'm going to say it makes sense that it would not be in the list but let me know if that's what you meant. On another note...

Re: Updating spreadsheets
Is there a way in Excel to take a spreadsheet containing new price adjustments, compare it to my current inventory, make price changes as necessary on my current inventory spreadsheet, and , then print a list of changed items?

We are looking for something fairly advanced that would enable us to do mass price changes based on supplier and item lookup codes. Also need to be flagged on new items and discontinued items.

CRM updates?
I just installed MS CRM 3.0, the demo version that was released a few months ago. I figured that surely there would be be updates, bug fixes, etc., but a visit to Microsoft Update did not find any. Questions: Have there been any updates? Is MS Update the place to find them? If not, where? MS Update will not update CRM. Since it's a business app, hotfixes are not automatically applied since many are only distributed when customers experience specific issues that require the hotfix. There is also a potential of some hotfixes requiring isntall on the client machines as well, so t...

Frx: linked data worksheet summing error
We use linked data worksheets for some of our reporting. The column format displays both current period and YTD. The YTD column is not calculating the correct amounts from the worksheet. For example, if we were in period 12, it would sum the YTD column as follows. period 1: add 12x period 2: add 11x period 3: add 10x period 4: add 9x ....and so forth period 12: add 1x Obviously, this gives us a huge error in the ytd column. Anyone have an idea why this is occurring? We are using the /cpo format for the linked worksheet. Thanks ...

Manipulating totals and columns in Pivot Tables
Hi, I'm constructing a pivot table that has investors as columns, investments as rows, and the general data is values. Trouble is there is a column which I want to only display half of each value.

export public folder data?
Am in the process of performing an Alternate server recovery of an Exchange 2003 Information Store.

How to select data series to format? (alternative needed)
Is there an alternate way to select a data series to format in an XY Scatter chart? The only way I know of is to move the cursor close to the series line and right-click. But if the chart includes many data series and the lines are close together, it is difficult, if not "impossible", to select the desired line. I am looking for a method that presents me with a list of all the data series, and I select the one I want to "right click" (i.e. open the menu that include format, add trendline and clear, among others). Or something else that would not be so difficult to use. ...

Sorting by Date in Pivot Tables
I have a worksheet I would like to make a pivot table from. My problem is that when I do it, the months and years don't appear in calendar order but rather alphabetical order (i.e., April comes first, January is further down). How can I format this to have the pivot table show January of 2002, rest of 2002 and then start January 2003? Julia, If you entered the dates as string values, then Excel will sort them as strings. If you enter the dates as dates, then Excel will sort by date. Format the cell with January 2002 as Number. If it stays January 2002, then your 'dates' are ac...

Pivot Table Grand Total Issue
Hi I have WinXP with Excel 2003 I have a pivot table that has a number of calculated fields in it.
