    Check access database table as part of if statement

    Afternoon Folks!

    I've had a little problem in the office with some VBA.
    I've been trying to get information from staff listed in a database, now that was fairly simple (A userform posting data to an access database).

    Now the problem is I have hundreds of staff to get the required data from, I have a userform that opens when excel workbook is opened but I have staff having to see this userform every time they open to file when they have already listed their required data.

    I have a list of NT Usernames which does get listed as part of the information dumped into my access database when they hit submit. What I want to do able to do is have excel check the data table and verify that the specific user has or has not submitted data then either display the form or skip it.

    Can this be done?

    It might be easier to have a query in Access that returns either a list of users who have data or those that don't have data.

    Then you could import that query into Excel and check the user's name against it.
    If posting code please use code tags, see here.

    Or you can query Access table with Excel. With Excel 2010 you can download free PowerPivot add-in. This is an awesome tool!
