Dunno if this will help, but open a module in Access. Got to Tools then references. Scroll down and you should find some reference to MS Excel (10 or some such number). Click it, and you should be able to access some of excels class and methods.
Curiosity got the better of me and I went back to Excel and typed a cell umber in Reference. Just typed E17 and it went straight to E17. Before I did that I copied a word form a Word doc and when I went to Edit on Excel and clicked Paste the entry in the cell was replaced. I widened the cell etc and it was a full replace rather and an append.
Dim docName As Object
Set docName = CreateObject("Word.Basic")
The next part in my VBA is
I think maybe if I could do the Excel counterpart of getting to the Excel file and then "a2" would be the cell reference instead of a Word Bookmark, the I could have Access field values flying all over the place in Excel!!
