        Dim xlwbook As Excel.Workbook  
      
       
      
       ' Const SHEET_NAME As String = "CreditRatings"  
      
        Dim i As Integer  
      
        Dim j As Integer  
      
        Dim sBuffer As String  
      
        Dim LastRowColB As Integer  
      
        Dim fn As Integer  
      
      
        Set xlwbook = xl.Workbooks.Open("c:\CreditRatingsReport.xls")  
      
       Set xlsheet = xlwbook.Sheets.Item("CreditRatings")  
      
      
      
        LastRowColB = xl.Range("B65536").End(xlUp).row  
      
        fn = FreeFile  
      
        'Open sOUTPUT_PATH & "\Ivory_SecuritiesIssued" & ".csv" For Append As #fn  
      
        For i = 2 To LastRowColB  
      
            sBuffer = ""  
      
            For j = 1 To 24  
      
      
      
            If IsDate(xlsheet.Cells(i, j)) Then  
      
                sBuffer = sBuffer & Format(xlsheet.Cells(i, j)) & "|"  
      
            Else  
      
                sBuffer = sBuffer & Trim(xlsheet.Cells(i, j)) & "|"  
      
            End If

    Re: input info from excel to a database

    Well for one thing this statement is missing a lot of required info
    Code:
     Cmd$ = "INSERT INTO ACRT (CNO, MoodysRate, SNPRate, FITCHRate, MoodysWatch, snPWatch, FITCHWatch, MoodysIRB) Values )
    It should be
    Code:
    Cmd$ = "Insert Into TableName ( Your field names as above) Values ( The actual values for each field listed in the first part)

    I have no idea what this line is actually doing
    Code:
    DBCALL "add", "ACRT", Cmd$ adds the info into tthe table
    And here you are checking result but you have not assigned result=anything so this is not goin to work either unless of course result is defined as a public variable and is assigned in the DBCall routine
    Code:
    If result <> dbSUCCESS And result <> 100 Then  
                    MsgBox "Data Base Unavailable or Unexpected error in Data Base or batch running."  
                    Message 43  
                    result = 1  
                      
        End If

    The values would be variables that you would read from the spread sheet then they would be inserted into the database. This would be done in a loop so it calls the insert for each new record. Keep in mind Insert is only for adding new records it is not for updating existing records.

    Of course if Your goal is to have lots of data entered into a database where people are entering new records all the time the best way would be to drop Excel from the equation and create a vb program for data entry/edited that talks directly to the database.
