Access Database

Last Modified: 2017-04-13
Migrating from an application that is using Excel Macros to manipulate and join data to MS Access.

I will be importing daily labor data into a table and all the data is there except for the Managers Pay.

I have a second table that has the pay rate. and the date the pay rates take effect.
Is it possible to have an update query to find the Manager & pay rate for the date listed in the Labor Data table?
The dates will probably have to be in ranges.. like at 1/1/2016 it was increased to $20.00/hr, and then on 1.1.2017 it was increased to $21.00/hr

Is this possible, or am I better doing this in excel and then import everything into access?
