Chapter 12. Importing and Exporting Data > Importing Data into Access

Importing Data into Access

Access lets you work with tables created by other database programs in several ways. The simplest way to use table data from another database is to import the table into your Access database, which you can do with tables from a number of other popular database and spreadsheet programs.

Import tables from other programs when you want to use the table data and don't need to have any updates, additions, or deletions appear in the original copy of the table; in other words, if you don't need to have your copy of the table linked to the original. For instance, if you purchase a number of books for your library and record the book information in a file on a floppy disk, you can import that data to your main database and consolidate your records.
