I wanted to see if the following scenario would be possible with VB. We have 13 different locations. What I want to do is open an access database. I want to open a table in access and sort it by a particular column by date. Once sorted I want to count how many have a close data of 'today' and export that number into an excel spreadsheet. I also want to add all sales for that day from 3 columns and than subtract 2 columns and export that number into the same excel spreadsheet.
Basically what I am trying to do is find out how many tickets were closed each day and the total sales for that day. I want all 13 locations to export this data on a daily basis not overwriting the previous day. They would need to connect to an FTP or a remote workstation not sure which is easier to set up. Would this be something I could accomplish with VB? I know I would probably need to set up some SQL to filter the data I want. I dont know much about ADO or if that would be best.
Thanks for your time,
