I have a database of clients who are booked to attend particular events throughout the year. The database of client details is actually handled by another program, but I can send these details to an Excel spreadsheet.

 

I am looking for a way I can easily generate a list of attendees for each event, with all the client details (address, phone, etc) automatically populated. Can anyone talk me through the steps how to make this happen?? I have Excel 2007 and Access at my disposal.

While you wait for someone more familiar with MS Office, I would use SQL Joins. Below is a link to using joins in access.

 

It does what it sounds like it does, which I believe is what you want.

Hello missbee,

 

Hopefully we can help you with your questions. Could you tell me if your customer database in in Access or another application? How do you get currently get the information out of the database and into Excel?

 

Incoming provided a good link on SQL joins. How familiar are you with queries, missbee?

 

Sincerely,

 

 

 

David
