Not too sure if I'm making this harder than it needs to be.

I have a linked table that feeds a MS Sharpoint "list" on my companies intranet. The table was created from a make table query from other data input tables. Users then imake an assessment and input information into data input fileds also made available for each record on the sharpoint list.

I'm wanting to update the table and consequently the list when the query shows changes to any of the records in the data set. The only problem is, I dont want this to overwrite any information users have input into the table. running it as another make table query will delete this information.

ie. Initially the Linked table as below were D and E are user input fields

Column A B C D E
Record 1 X Y Z OK OK
Record 2 X Z Y OK NOK
Record 3 Y X Z OK OK

However latest query now shows

Column A B C
Record 1 X Y L
Reocrd 2 H Z Y
Redord 3 Y X G


3 of the data values have now changed.

I want to get this data back into the linked table without upsetting columns D and E.

Have tried using update queries and various forms of delete and append queries, but cant get these to work.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

If you start asking yourself if now is a good time to save your Excel workbook, the answer is Yes
I would suggest that you move columns D & E into another table with a foreign key back to your main one.
