    Append data to a Excel file from a Template

    Dear All,

    I have 2 excel files, One is just a template file and second excel file has actual data. I want user should not access actual data file directly, he would just fill template and click on Save button. Once save button is clicked filled data would get appended into second excel file.
    In other words - Second file would act as a database file.

    I want template file programmed with VBA/Macros.
    I am new to VBA, please help me out around this problem.

    Thanks

    Sure. Why dont you attach a sample of your template file and the second file?

    To Attach a File:

    1. Click on Go Advanced
    2. In the frame Attach Files you will see the button Manage Attachments
    3. Click the button.
    4. A new window will open titled Manage Attachments - Excel Forum.
    5. Click the Browse... button to locate your file for uploading.
    6. This will open a new window File Upload.
    7. Once you have located the file to upload click the Open button. This window will close.
    8. You are now back in the Manage Attachments - Excel Forum window.
    9. Click the Upload button and wait until the file has uploaded.
    10. Close the window and then click Submit.
