Link Access table to Excel worksheet
I want to link these so that they can be edited in either programme.
Whichever way, the link box is greyed out.
You can make a linked table in Access. It's File - Get External Data -
Link. The data lives in the Excel workbook, I think (I don't think Access
keeps a copy of it). But you can change data in either Excel or Access.

...Using a query versus a table for the look up wizard
I have a field which I would like to use the lookup wizard for to generate a
drop down list for the user to select from.
My question is whether my databse would run faster if I used:
a query from an already established table as the values for the lookup
to build a new table to hold the information for the lookup wizard to use.
I think you'll find few of us recommend the use of the Lookup Wizard. Lookup
fields only have a place in tables, and your users should never be working
directly with the tables. Create a form, and use a combo box on the form.

I want to copy a html table to a word programatically. I have manage to get

Is there a way to keep the settings for merged cells?
Or a way to paste the html table in a word like the Ctrl+C/Ctrl+V does?

Using Word 2007 and I have created a Table of Contents within a frame

I created a macro that will copy copy the information from a created pivot
table to another sheet. I seemed ok when I recorded the macro. But there's no

correct the problem?
Record another macro when you try it again?
If it fails again, you may want to describe what you did to copy the data (copy
the cells to a new sheet or copy the sheet???).
And share the code (that fails) that does the copy.

and the system ONLY allows 2 decimal places.
Anyone worked around this?
Yes, allow three decimal places for deductions.
