    Unanswered: Access working with Windows 7

    I have an Access VBA procedure that creates an Excel spreadsheet from Access data. This works fine in XP but does not work with Windows 7. Has anyone any ideas about why? The code is:

    Dim stDocName As String

    DoCmd.SetWarnings False
    stDocName = "qryExportThree"
    'Create the table tblExport
    DoCmd.OpenQuery stDocName, acNormal, acEdit

    'Create a Recordset from all the records in the tblExport table
    Dim MyData As String
    Dim conn As New adodb.Connection
    Dim rs As adodb.Recordset
    MyData = DLookup("Path", "tblAdmin")
    conn.Open "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=" & MyData & ";"
    conn.CursorLocation = adUseClient
    Set rs = conn.Execute("tblExport", , adCmdTable)

    'Create a new workbook in Excel
    Dim oExcel As Object
    Dim oBook As Object
    Dim oSheet As Object
    Set oExcel = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
    Set oBook = oExcel.Workbooks.Add
    Set oSheet = oBook.worksheets(1)

    'Transfer the data to Excel
    oSheet.range("A1").copyfromrecordset rs

    'Save the Workbook and Quit Excel
    oBook.SaveAs Me.txtdir

    'Close the connection

    DoCmd.SetWarnings True
