Sharepoint list value updated via access or Excel

Hi - I am looking for an MS office based solution that can take a value from an Access Query / Excel file, and update an EXISTING share point list , locating the corresponding SharePoint record (We use an ID field as our unique record) .

After the SharePoint administrator added numerous lookup values, I am not longer able to link to a share point site via MS access, so not able to make an update query in MS access.

Is it possible to get around the inability to link to this share point list from MS access if I am not the SharePoint Admin, or , is there any VBA code available that can update an existing SharePoint list item. (vs just adding a share point list from an excel table) using Excel ?

After locating some related items on EE, if VBA code could read an excel file similar to the one on the attached screen shot, that would be perfect.  I am neither a VBA guru, nor a sharepoint admin, so if the pictured Sharepoint List name and or Sharepoint field names seem inaccurate, please provide pointers on this as well.

Thanks

Something to consider - fix the issue with the lookup values. In that way you may be able to use the system again without having to reinvent it.

Just a thought...

Walter - Thanks, I asked the SP admin to increase the lookup value, but they will not.  I'll use excel connections to a view.  thanks!

Too bad about increasing lookup value. If you have some lookups with just a few selections maybe convert to choice columns and free up a lookup of two.

Thanks and have a good one...
