    "Autofilling" Excel sheet from an Access DB

    Ok... this is something for my job and need a lil help. So thought i would bring it to the programmers.

    I am making excel sheet where
    column 1 = customer id
    column 2 = customer name
    column 3 = address
    column 4 = telephone

    I have an access database that contains all my customer information.
    What i want is if i lets say i enter 222343 into column one and it is a valid cusotmer in my access db then it would fill out the customer name, address and telephone columns in my excel sheet to save time.

    I assume this would need some type of VB code, but i am not not very knowledgable with VB. So i am gonna play dumb.

    Only code i do at work is Clarion and sometimes cognos

    If anyone could help me out or even show me a sample of what i am trying to acheive so i could analyze it then i am sure it wouild make sense.

    You don't need any VB code to do this, excel can get data from a database and do what you want very easily.

    BUT...what on earth are you asking here for?? Take it here
