How to input data in an access form like ms excel?

9 New Member
Dear All,

As you know that input data on excel is easy than access, you can simple click the date that you prefer and input the value that you want. For example :

Consider that the month that I use is November 2009 :
If i use excel it will look like this,
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Country    Day in a month                
  2.         1       2       3       4       5
  3. Australia               4       3
  4. China           5       2
  5. England                 7
  6. France          2       3
  7. India   1
  8. Italy   1                               8
  9. Japan                           6
The column consist date in a month (until 30 for November 2009), the row consist the country (fix value / description).
In excel we can simply put a value on every row that we choose.

1. Does anyone familiar with data input on excel that could be apply in access form?
2. What should be prepare to get excel kind of display in ms access form?
3. In excel to change the month we can just simply move to copy the active sheet then rename it to next month name, Does it possible in ms access form?
4. A simple sample would be thankful if possible.
5. PS : How to align a column when asking a question (as you can see my table gone messy)?

Please kindly answer my question in easy language.
Thank you and regards,

Using the [code ] and [/code ] tags (without the extra space) will allow you to line up your example properly because it uses a font with constant width characters. Until then, it's very difficult to tell what you are trying to do.

My general advice is, if you want to use a form that works like Excel for input, just use Excel and import the data into a table. Rewriting the Excel interface is not fun.

Also, have you planned out your tables such that there will be an advantage to using a relational database?

The trick, when entering table data on the forum is :
  1. Use the [ CODE ] tags (as Chip suggests).
  2. Never use TABs for alignment. Always space out your data.

How do I create a data input form in Access that is external to the Access database to which it's connected (if that's possible, which I believe it is)? For example, if someone clicks on an Access file icon on a computer desktop, it will open up a data entry form (that was created in Access). That way, the people who enter the data won't have direct access to the database at any point. I've seen that this can be done, but I don't know...

There is an Access table on the network. 15 users who do not have Access are connected to the network. Is there a way for each user to be able to enter one or more rows containing 3 or 4 columns to Excel on his machine and then press a button or something and append that data to the Access table on the network? Any suggestions on what the code would be? Thank you very much! Martin

I have been working on an Access app that takes info from a file and writes it to a spreadsheet on a form, simultaneously saving the spreadsheet to Excel. I got the idea that the same concept could work in reverse, i.e. we have a cost model written in Excel that calculates the profitability of customer accounts based on several inputs and they need to be updated at least once per year. These cost models sit on lots of people's hard...
