Hello,

I have an excel file with [DueDates] and [TaskDescription].
I know Access can upload data to the Lotus Notes calendar with VBA code
Is it possible to upload calendar entries to Sharepoint?  

thank you

The short answer is yes.

A  SharePoint Calendar is really a list. So you would import data from Access/Excel to a SharePoint List.

Here is a general explanation of how to do it.

For a more specific description you need to provide the version of MS Access or Excel and the version of SharePoint.

Hi, sorry I had forgotten about this thread.  

Do you happen to know if upon an export to sharepoint, you can delete the list first and then import?  I will be exporting the list frequently and want to avoid duplicates.  I know Outlook has this feature.  I have never used sharepoint.

With the PowerShell command there is an option to overwrite. So you can overwrite your list with your imported list.
