    Unanswered: Export from Access to Excel Runtime Error 462


    I have written some code which works kind of.

    Basically i am exporting data from Access 2000 to Excel 2000 onto a template in excel then making a copy of the worsheet and saving the file. The code works 1st time but second time when i try opeing up excel it does not open up and when i try runnig my code again i get a debug message come up

    Run-time error "462":

    The remote server machine does not exist or is unavailable

    What i have to do is close my database and end process excel under taks manager for it to work.

    I think in the code its not closing the application and its in memory.

    Below is the code

    Thanks in advance

    Option Compare Database
    Option Explicit

    Only had a quick look - might be a memory leak - Get shot of your xlSheet reference too; xlSheet = nothing...?
