Excel info to access

I would like to build something that will take information from excel into Access.

My excel sheet will have one column of "BookingNumbers". I have an access table that has "BooingNumber" as the primary identifier.  It also has a "Yes/No" field called "Finished" on that table.

If the "BookingNumber" is listed in the excel column. I want the Access table to change the "Finish" value to "Yes".

I will be doing this multiple times a day, so I'd like it to be relatively quick and accurate. Any ideas?

The simplest way would be to link the Excel sheet to Access, and then create an Update query to handle the changes. Without knowing your structure it's hard to give focused advice, but in general it would be something like:

UPDATE LocalTable SET Finish='YES' WHERE BookingNumber IN (SELECT BookingNumber FROM YourLinkTAble)

You could also use an INNER JOIN on those tables, if the datatypes all match up.
