Unanswered: TransferSpreadsheet Import into different database
I recently worot a procedure to import an excel spreadsheet into a table in my access mdb file. It worked very well, but I would like to split the database so that the datatables are in a seperate backend database. I am assuming that this will affect my procedure as I will now have to tell it to import the table into the backend database.
I would be grateful for any ideas on how to do this? I am hoping this will be a simple one for a guru?
The code that used to work is below ( it is the "tblDebtors_raw" bit that will need to change but to what?);
Thanks for that I will try it and post back if successful. Not sure how to point the make-table query to an external database yet but I will do a bit of reading up, sure it can't be too difficult.......can it?
....Update, have done this now and works great. Thanks!
This has given me a slightly different problem now but I will post seperately about that. Oh and by the way I didn't have to do any reading, just simply ticked the 'another database' box on the query builder!!! Thanks again!

if you split your database with Database Splitter Wizard, you will have table links in your frontend database to backend database tables.
I believe in this case your import operation should work without problem. since you will have links to backend tables, it will work without modification.
