    Is it possible to link the fields in a tabular format in the spreadsheet? Perhaps in a separate sheet that can link to the original data?

    Why not just develop an Access form? It would be a lot faster and easier to manage.....

    I would never have an Excel front end with an Access back end... the very thought makes me cringe.

    I agree w/StarTrekker the best way is to do it all in MS Access, however, I've also been in many environments where all the users know is Excel and the form is standard form is sacrosanct.

    There is a wizard that creates a link between an Excel template and a database of any flavour (provided that you have the drivers for it) - I once played around with it, but couldn't see a use for it.
    For more information, open Help in Excel and type "What is the Template Wizard with Data Tracking?" into the search box.
