You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our exercises.

The folder shown above contains an Excel spreadsheet called Owners.xls. Import the data in the range name Owners into a new table called Imported Owners.
Don't choose a key field when importing the data - later you will append the data to a table that already has a primary key.
Create an append query to transfer the data from the newly imported to the Owner table. Save the query as AppendImportedOwners.
Run the query and check the new records have been appended.
