merge excel data into master excel spreadsheet

I'm a sailor over here in Afghanistan awash in a sea of data!  I've written an Access dbase to manage the data and am using a standardized Excel spreadsheet form to update the dbase with new info that comes in daily.  I need to figure out a way to automate as much of the input file management as I can so that when I (and my programming skills) leave, the data flow is automated as much as possible.

I will receive daily maintenance request info from 16 forward bases via a standard spreadsheet form.  Each request will be submitted via email as seperate spreadsheet.  Attached is a schematic of the dataflow.

From an Access dbase form, I need to automatically merge (append) each day's request (record) from each base into a single master spreadsheet.  The Access dbase will be linked to this master spreadsheet.

Hello KEP66,

First and foremost, thank you for your service!

On to your question...

1) It would be really, really helpful to have a copy of the Excel workbooks you are uploading.  Can you fill one with
fake data and attach it to your question

2) It would also be useful to know the db schema (relevant tablecolumn names, data types, primary/foreign keys,
etc) as well as whether the data comes in as straight inserts or as updates

3) You should use the 'request attention' link to ask the Mods to assign this question to the Access and Excel
zones as well, to get more eyeballs on it

Regards,

Patrick
