Using Access I export/create a daily Excel spreadsheet which has an increasing number of records/rows.

I'd like to then open a master Excel sheet, which:

  1. Opens the exported sheet.

  2. Counts the number of rows in the exported sheet which have data, then

  3. Copies a particular row in the master sheet, down the same number of rows that there are records in the exported sheet, plus 1.

I used to do this in Lotus, but Windows 7 won't work with 1-2-3, and the macros won't convert.

Use VBA.

First, open the other workbook.

Second, get the count like this:

ExportRows = Workbooks("Other").Sheets("Export").UsedRange.Rows.Count

Third, copy the row


Then you can paste it where you want.
