Hi Artman,

You can alter/change Msexcel 2010 through switch board .There 2 ways of doing this:

1)First create a macro to connect excel to msaccess switchboard.

Sub Excel()

         Dim ExApp As Variant

         DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdAppMinimize

         Set ExApp = CreateObject("Excel.Application")

    ExApp.Workbooks.Open FileName:="C:UsersXXXXXDesktopForms Lookup"

    ExApp.Visible = True

    Sheets("Individual Form Lookup").Select      

End Sub

2)You can download some freeware software.You can download one such software from the below link .This software uses MS Excel as a front-end interface to a MS Access database.

Use Excel to import and export tables to and from an Access database.
