Oh, I am sooo thankful for the responses coming from 2 of this forum's Masters (one Certified, the other Supreme. I love it!)!
Your suggestions sent me off to Google for some answers, and my search landed me in the lap of the MrExcel forum. Hopefully someone over there can provide me with the proper Excel driver (though that's gonna require that the server that I use has it installed though, right? Hmmmm. More worries).
Anyway, Dave (our right honorable Certified Master), the whole ADODB.Stream object (and updating the stream) thingy went over my head like an F15 flyby - WHOOOOSH! This girl knows her Excel, but... "the internal format of an Excel file"? Color me clueless (lol!). Maybe I'll drop that one on the MrExcel gurus just to test 'em (wink).
And, jpmoriarty (our right honorable Supreme Master - and also know as John), I really DO need to take the time to learn how to link Excel data to a table in Access (I'm a bit embarassed that I don't already know how to do it). And since it will increase my ability to obtain even more data for web distribution, I gotta have that knowledge!
And, as we all know:
Dim khaki, knowledge, power as Integer
If (knowledge = power) And (power = knowlege) Then
Msg = "khaki would be the Master!"
Msg = "khaki hits the forums"
(That's for all of the old-school Excel fans out there. And you'll notice that I "Dim"ed khaki first. I did it on purpose, so no wiseguys need comment. lol!)
So anyway, I've gone off point (waaaay off! ...sorry)
But Thank you guys soooo much!
And if you guys think that it will help others, I'll post whatever I learn from the MrExcel gurus (let me know if you think that I should).
(oh, Dave and John, your titles are safe. I would be the Web Mistress. lol! Now how do I get that posted nest to MY profile? lol!)
