Hi,

Sorry, but your requirement is not completely clear (to me).

How is column [P] within the MS-Excel workbook associated/linked with a column within an MS-Access database table?

Have you already opened a connection to the database &, hence, do you just need help with the code to remove a column from the MS-Access database schema (table definition)?

Thank you for your clarification & provision of all the relevant details to proceed.

BFN,

fp.

I'm using  Access and I want to delete an Excel column using Access VBA. If this helps, I'm using the following code to to convert two Excel columns to text using VBA from an Access button.

'Convert Columns A and B to Text
Private Sub Udate_Click()
 Set objApp = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
        objApp.Visible = False
        Set wb = objApp.Workbooks.Open("\\cdc\project\OD_FMO_DEBT_MGT\Cash Recon Database\General Fund FOIA.xlsx", True, False)
   
    wb.Sheets(1).Range("A:B").NumberFormat = "@"
    wb.Save
    wb.Close
  objApp.Quit
    Set objApp = Nothing

I figured it out -- thanks. Here is the code

Private Sub Command0_Click()
 Set objApp = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
        objApp.Visible = True
        Set wb = objApp.Workbooks.Open("\\cdc\project\OD_FMO_DEBT_MGT\Cash Recon Database\General Fund FOIA.xlsx", True, False)
   
    Columns("P:P").Delete

    wb.Save
    wb.Close
  objApp.Quit
    Set objApp = Nothing
   
End Sub
