I'm not quite sure how to do this. I have a MS access table with many columns. I also have data from excel that will always have the same header names as the access table, but not all of them will match. For example: my Access table will have Column 1,2,3,4 but my excel table will only have a Column 2 and 4. How do I have Excel match the header name with access and import the data into those columns only? Is this possible? Any help you can provide would be great.

How can you turn a range sideways?
Copy the range. Select a blank cell. Right-click, Paste Special, then choose Transpose.

What I have done in the past was set up a linked table in access to my excel worksheet. Then created a query with the missing columns. I do not know if what you are looking for can be done. Try WWW.utteracess.com also.
