Linking Access to Excel, Date Format Problems
Posted by Jeff Carey on December 10, 2001 9:53 AM
Problem: When I link Access tables to an Excel workbook where I plan to maintain an Excel
workbook sheet I have problems with my date fields. The Excel date cell will be in the mm/dd/yy format but when
I use Access to link Excel to an Access Table I end up with #Num! in linked table field.
If I use Access Forms I can enter a date as mm/dd/yy and it will post the the Excel cell correctly and be correct in
all of the Access tables. Only problem is that I have over 1000 date fields to update/repost.
Thanks Jeff Carey
