Inserting multiple lines to multiple rows

P: 2
Hi, I'm totally stuck and i'm sure my problem must be really easy.

i want to create an access form with a text box linked to a table. i want users to be able to copy cells from an excel column and paste them into the text box. i then want each row in the text box to be inserted into consecutive row of each table field. how is it done???

Many thanks!

I suspect if you show the form in Continuous mode then you will be able to paste in multiple records. If not, then try Datasheet mode.

Thanks, but i'm not sure this is the answer. If i bring up a continuous form i could paste for instance 8 rows over 8 rows in form view. But this isn't really what i'm after. What I really need is to do is have a text box that i can paste into that will insert the various lines to consecutive rows- just like if i was importing a txt file or somthing similar.

You may want to take a look that transfersheet method:

...You can use the TransferSpreadsheet method to import or export data between the current Access database or Access project (.adp) and a spreadsheet file...
