I need to write a Windows program for transposing certain columns of data from specific rows (in an Excel spreadsheet) into database updates. Although the requirements are not yet very clear, I am trying to see how Entity Framework can help me.

How do EF and Access work together? Would I create an EDMX file the way I have done with a SQL Server database?  Then would I use Linq queries to access the data?

Thanks!

Just to clarify the terminology here...
"Entity Framework" only really applies to ADO.net an the .net line of development languages.

When you are talking about MS Excel and MS Access, then common term is "Interoperability"

You can see here for a two techniques for transposing data:
