thanks for your attention

the question is that im 'working' on a software to automate  a weekly
employee task that resumes to

import a excel file that comes in zip format from the mother-company with
new prices and products,
to update an accounting software that uses M$ access db.

there are already access databases that import the file, merge the new data
with the old and update the databases ...

( i made a vb aplication to fire up the databases in the right sequence )
but its very complicated to the person in question

so i thinked of a php aplication to upload  the file and replace the work
made by Acess

workbook ?

Why use PHP to do this, there are plenty of tools to in Access to import
from Excel.

Unless there are other considerations, use Access to pull that
data.  (Hint:  Link the excel spreadsheet and run an (update or append)
