    Question regarding data connections and capturing historical data

    Good day!

    I currently have a project where data from SharePoint feeds an excel workbook on a regular basis. Some of the data included is project start and end dates, project status, etc.

    My issue is that I can't find which status a project was at months ago because the status keeps updating, so if I am trying to collect historical data from Quarter 1, all I get is up to date information.

    My solution was to copy the selected sheet into a new work book on a weekly basis and disable the data connection to prevent updates.

    I was wondering if anyone possibly had any much better suggestions than my manual approach?


    Any help is greatly appreciated!!

    Learn Access database. Transfer all sheet to a table where it keeps ALL records in 1 spot and historical lookup is easy.

    OK So I've spent a little while in Access now and I'll keep fiddling around. We'll see what I can come up with.
