    Lightbulb Unanswered: Copying a Table

    Hi there...

    I'm waaaay behind in building a database for my finance department... I need your help!!!

    I have a table ($ spent) that I will import from a data warehouse weekly. What I need to do is be able to tell how much was spent between last week and this week. I'd like to be able to run a macro that saves the current table as "PreviousWeek" and then import the current data and overwrite what was in the "CurrentWeek" table. From there I would run a query that calculates the difference between the data in the PreviousWeek table and the CurrentWeek table. Is there a way to automate this process? I'm not very experienced with VBA, but I do know the basics.

    I wouldn't have two separate tables for each week. Make one table with your data and week number. Every week you would insert the new data into that table then just run a simple query that calculates the difference.
