I'm trying to figure out what I need to do to make my new linked table work in place of my old table (by the same name). I removed the old table by the same name and I made sure that the data types in the Excel spreadsheet match the data types in the old Access table.

I'm wondering if the source of the 'mismatch' has anything to do with the autonumber datatype that is not in Excel.

This is the only obsticle that I can see that is stoping me from making my new database operational with my old tables.
