Good day everyone. I have an Access database that contains user account information but it is static and once a month I run a few reports from this database.

The way I update it currently is I log into the website that contains this information (third party company), I export the data (username, email, last login date, etc) from the site into a .CSV file (the file also gets populated with time stamp, and some other information at the very top...column titles and date does not start until the 8th row), I then open Access...go into the table and copy each column over one at a time manually from the CSV file to the Access table.

Any idea how I can automate this process?
