I need to provide a limited view of a database to a few individuals, with only a few tables and queries. My thought was to create a new database, and import the relevant tables into it. I created a macro that runs an import specification, and it works fine.
The problem is refreshing the tables. I want to run a scheduled task for this and, as you probably know, this raises several issues. First, repeatedly running the macro creates multiple copies of the tables and queries. And deleting the tables before re-running the import routine fails because of relationships between the tables. I don't care about losing the relationships. I want to delete everything and then import the tables again, in just one shot.
I should also say that I've been using Access for a long time, but I don't do anything extremely complicated with it. So my experience is extensive but my skill level is moderate. I use macros because they're easy to use and work for my simple tasks. I don't have much experience with VBA in Access.
Thanks for your help.
