    Is it possible, using a formula, to insert a value into a cell that comes from a particular field on a form in an access database? I realise that the database must be open for this to work.

    Thanks,

    Neil.

    why would you want link to a form rather than a table?

    Because I need to take the data of the open record, i.e. the one that is currently being viewed.

    I guess an easier way would be to export the data from the form to the spreadsheet using a macro or expression from within Access. Is this possible?
