I'm trying to import data from several excel sheets into access. The problem is that the column headings in the excel files are identifiers, and should themselves be included in a field.

i.e: I have an excel table like this
1 2 3
a x x x
b x x x
c x x x

but want it in access like this:
a 1 x
a 2 x
a 3 x
b 1 x
b 2 x
etc....

Any quick way to do this without a lot of manual copying/pasting etc? It's quite a bit of data over many sheets....

Thanks,
- Rich

Whats the difference between CONCAT and CONCATENATE?
The newer CONCAT function can reference a range of cells. =CONCATENATE(A1,A2,A3,A4,A5) becomes =CONCAT(A1:A5)
