Excel/2 way sync between Excel 2013 and Acces 2013


QUESTION: hi Expert,

Can you please guide me on  Two way sync between Excel 2013 and Access 2013 , it can be time based (every 30 min) or based on some macro.

if yes , how to do it?

Please help!!


ANSWER: ONe-way is very easy, as you can pull data from any access database using Data, From Access. The other way requires VBA programming, implementing the Microsoft ADO library. Have you got any VBA experience?

QUESTION: Thanks for quick reply.
I don't have much VBA experience.

But my case is very simple. I will prefer to run a excel macro , that will simply update one worksheet into a predefined MS access table.

and another macro ,that will update the excel from the Acess. ( exactly opposite)

Any ref code will be of great help!!


Here are some pages that may help:

Hope this helps!
