    Unanswered: Transferspreadsheet, while..wend range

    Here's hoping a handy coder is out there..

    Take a look at the below code, and my objective might seem quite clear to you.

    What I want to do, is use the transferspreadsheet function to export a specific table to Excel, naming the sheet in the process using the Range parameter.

    Is this possible? Or would I have to look into OA?

    Cheers, Trin

    I'm sure it's possible. However, I don't do a lot of work with Excel, but there are some that cruise past here that do and will be able to point you in the right direction.

    Bad news, good news

    The bad news is that the range option to the transferspreadsheet command is only valid for importing from Excel, not exporting which you want to do.

    The good news is that you can use the Excel copyfromrecordset command to accomplish what you want. Within access, you'll have to create an excel object for the spreadsheet that is to receive the data and create a recordset for the data. The format is something like

    myxcelobj.range(myrange).copyfromrecordset myaccessrs

    hope this helps!

    If you want to rename a sheet within a workbook, you'll need to use Access to control Excel. Once you've opened the file that you need, you can rename the sheet using standard Excel VBA commands.
    I have a database that exports four queries to an Excel wowrkbook, then opens the book, renames each of the sheets within it and then creates a new sheet and adds some values, formatting and formulae. If this sounds like it would be useful, let me know and I'll sort out the code for you.
    Forgot to say that it has a tendency to fall over the first time around, and then work properly. I've been meaning to post a qustion about it here, but then get confused as to whether it should be in the Access or Excel forum.
