    Unanswered: Multiple Excel to Access

    Hello,

    I have got 1400+ Excel workbooks with different columns and a lot of rows. I want to combine them all into one. I think Access Append Query is gonna work fine for me as I am not familiar with coding and vba. But the problem is, even if I go for the append query option it's gonna take days or maybe weeks. Is there any way to bring all excel workbooks in access at once? and combine them all in one query?

    Well, this is just my thought. If anyone has any better way to get it done, please suggest.

    Cheers!

    your Different Columns is going to be your Problem


    The way i would do it is one at a time

    create the Table in Msaccess

    link the 1st execl file do a Append to the Table change the Feild Pointing cause of the Different Columns

    link the 2rd execl file do a Append to the Table change the Feild Pointing cause of the Different Columns

    ....
    ....

    link the 1400th execl file do a Append to the Table change the Feild Pointing cause of the Different Columns
    hope this help
