Saving a CSV file to a database

Create a database in access called stock.mdb .

Now create a table like in the image in figure 1 and save this as stock

stock database

stock database

Now ensure that the last price , change , open price , daily high , daily low fields all have the field size set as Double , this is because the data is fractional and if you use the default Field size for a Number data type in Access this will give you a Long Integer and you will lose some of the data.

‘declare variables for the database

‘create instance of the Connection object
Set objConn = Server.CreateObject(“ADODB.Connection”)
