Excel to Access 2000-XP Converter Utility program
Author: Peter Hibbs
This utility program allows you to convert an Excel spreadsheet file which contains 'flat-file' data into one or more tables in an Access database.
The program creates primary and foreign keys in the tables so that 'One to Many' or even 'Many to Many' related tables can be created automatically. You just import the Excel file into the program, create a template which tells the program which columns in the spreadsheet should be copied to which fields in which tables, click a button and the program will extract the data into a series of separate tables which can then be exported to a new database via .csv files.
The program can also be used to create properly 'normalised' tables from data in MS Works or any other database by first exporting the data to an Excel spreadsheet (or .csv file which can then be imported into Excel). Full instructions are included.
This version runs under Access 2000 and Access XP (2002).
