I know Excel can run my VBA code every 1 hour automatically by putting the code in the event Workbook_Open, just have my code including the line like Application.OnTime...

Can Access achieve this? Does Access have the mothod like OnTime?

I currently have this requirement from my users says "pls let let Access to import Excel data outside into Access every 1 hours AUTOMATICALLY instead of let me just click the button in the screen."

Anyone pls help to comment.

Thanks in advance,
Tim

Can you AutoAverage in Excel?
There is a drop-down next to the AutoSum symbol. Open the drop-down to choose AVERAGE, COUNT, MAX, or MIN

Hi Tim
I'm not sure if this will help but you can create a form which has a timer interval that you can set to run a macro (or an event procedure). If you go into the form design, have a look at the properties -> Event -> On Timer & Timer Interval properties.
HTH, Andrew. :)
