I think we are starting to push the limits of Excel now we just keep running into too many stumbling points. Basically, we had a "Inbound Tracker", essentially a list of all the deliveries due (about 200-ish a day), that we update with arrival time, trailer number and fill% as the day goes on. I updated it with other cells that update themselves, main one being "OK" if on time, or the delay in minutes if it is late. I put in conditional formatting so lates are in red, might be late (not in yet, but less than 30 mins late) in yellow. And cells for another department to update with why its late, ETA, stuff like that. Problem is, I think, too many people edit or look at it. Excel likes to get data jumbled up if someone changes the sort order (say from delivery time to origin alphabetically) and just now, someone was looking at it, clicked save to update what I had input it and I lost over an hours work. I'd like it to be a database, but I have limited knowledge of Access, and just enough SQL from a short module at uni on PHP. I don't mind learning as I go, I enjoy it, and if I don't nobody else will! Would Access be viable? Ideally one database (one excel workbook a day at the moment, but one database would be far better for monitoring performance) with separate views for each department so they can only see/do what they need to. I've gotten pretty good with VBA in excel, so not too worried about that.
