I have an excel file that I'm importing into access. One of the columns (fields to import) contains date information i.e. 01/05/2012 00:00:00 Tue. When I import it into Access as a Date with Time I end up with import errors and it doesn't work. I tried to change the format of the excel cells to Date but it makes no difference.
My next step is to link records by date, this table and another table where the Date is separate fields Month, Day, Timestep. The timestep is an integer from 1 to 48 for each day (half hourly data for one day).
How do I import this data into the database? I don't need the actual day information (i.e. Tue). Is it possible to parse the date using VB script or a macro into Year, Month, Day, Hour, Minute, Second etc.? Or include the timestep for the time?
