    write to access from excel using a range instead of per field name

    Hi all,

    I have the below code to write to access database with excel.
    I would like to know if it is possible to change a little bit the code to use a range instead of per field as I would like to add more records to the database then just row by row.

    Any help is very appreciated.

    Once you add your ADO reference, you should be able to insert records using code like this:

    Note: there are memory leak issues with running queries against an open workbook so it would be better if you could run the code from a different workbook with the data one closed, but you will probably be OK if you only need to run this once or twice per session.

    Hi,

    The ADO is not working, what ever I do. Just no more clues what could go wrong.

    You need to add a reference to the Microsoft ActiveX Data Objects 2.8 library (note you may have 2.7 or 2.1 or other version if you don't have 2.8)

    Hi,

    I did, but it could be that excel lost the dll file somehow.
    Where can I find it (folders)?

    I don't know what you mean - Excel doesn't lose .dlls

    If you set the reference to say the 2.1 version, that should be available on all machines.

    I did reinstall excel 2003 and now I have 2003 and 2007. What was working before, is not working now. But also not on 2003.
    I guess something was overwritten.

    Hi,

    maybe late binding will help out. but I don't know how I could change the above code to make it work.
    any ideas?
