export report to Excel results in 2 rows of column headers

Here's my issue. I have to export data to excel for uploading to a vendor's system. The vendor required that several of the columns have IDENTICAL headings, and one of the column headings has to contain a % symbol at the end.

I can't do this with exporting a query, so I tried using a report. If I make text boxes for the desired duplicate column headings, it works just fine. The problem is that on row 2 of the exported data, the actual column headings from the query are also exported. Can this be avoided?

Sample of exported data:
Ded % DedAmt | DedAmt
Ded | DedAmt | DedAmt2

Importing Excel into Access with few requirements
I'm fairly familiar with access as I use it as a front end to my database. I have created a wizard which goes through couple steps from selecting Import file which is excel with maybe couple of rows with serial numbers in it.

This import file can contain but not have to couple of columns. Also it might contain Headers or not and lastly it might have some empty rows between each serial.

This data is then processed and then the user selects where to save the exported file with a lot of information in it.

Now I have solved the issue of prompting a user to choose which column the data starts at (ex. A1 or B1 etc.)

Now I have two questions that I need help with and I tried searching online but had no luck.

During the wizard stage I would like to include a check mark that would be IF its checked then it will know that this imported file has headers and it will start at A2 instead of A1!

Second Question:

My second question is about the blank rows, when I import the excel file if there are empty rows between filled in rows is there a way to skip them and then on the export sheet just showthe rows that were there on the first excel sheet?

Report export to Excel with format
I have a beautiful report and when printed straight from access it has nice gridlines and even gridlines null fields (which I want). However when I export to excel all the fancy gridlines and bold fonts are lost.

Is there a way I can get it to export to excel what I can print in access? I would like to be able to export to excel to add some extra rows before printing but not have to do all the formatting.

I've tried printing to word, same problem as excel. Tried printing a pdf and it looks exactly the same but I can't edit it to add the extra blank rows.

Troubleshoot exporting in Access
I do not see any entries for MicrosoftOffice Excel 2003 in the Files of type box when I start the export operation. I exported data to an Excel spreadsheet, but now I see green triangles and strings that begin with "#" in the spreadsheet. When I export to Excel, the graph objects are missing in the worksheet. Data is in the wrong column in the resulting Excel worksheet. The worksheet is showing null values instead of date values. I see only "#" in an entire column in my Excel worksheet after the export operation is complete. I exported a form to Excel, but the subforms are not in the worksheet. I don't see any of the pictures that are in the original report int the resulting Excel worksheet. Memo fields are truncated during the export to Excel operation. Report totals are missing in the worksheet to which I exported an Access report. I get the message "Unable to read file" when I export to Excel. I get the message "Too many rows" when I export to Excel. File extensions don't show up beside the file names in the Save As Type dialog box. I'm not able to link my database objects to Microsoft IIS or Microsoft ASP files.


Export to Excel Issue
I have a "Search Engine" on my DB which is mad up of 3 tabs. In the form you can filter results and in each subform, various information is displayed. This works fine.

I have a Button "Export to Excel" and when I filter results and hit this button, it exports my filered results to excel. This works fantastic on the first and the second tab. But on the third tab, no matter what my filtered results are, it only seems to export the column headings and nothing else. My VBA code is as follows. Can you please tell me what I'm doing wrong and suggest a fix please


Report Export to Excel
access,
I have a report that contains column totals. I have a macro setup to export this to excel. I realize the totals will not be exported because of the way I am using the unbound text boxes to calcuate them in the report footer.

The strange thing is that when I manually total up the fields in excel they do not match my report totals. I have visually compared the report to the excel file and every record has been exported. This seems impossible


Report Headers/Design
1. I have a report with 23 columns. The columns contains 3 or 4 digit numbers. The Column Headers (in Page Header Sec) are wider than the numeric data in the columns. How can I display the column headers in a way to be long enough to be descriptive yet not waste space on the report - so ideally it may fit on One page.

2. I have footer sums in the Report Footer. Can I display the footer sums with out displaying the Column Headers in the Page Header Section.

Overflow message when trying to export Report to Excel.
I have a report based on a table that has six fields and just over 32k rows of data in it.
The report opens fine in Access [takes about a second to open] - and I was able to export it as a pdf - [686 pages].

When I try to export it as an Excel Spreadsheet - it scrolls through about 600 page numbers [in the export progress dialog box] and then displays an 'Overflow' dialog box. The spreadsheet is not created.


Export Specifics from Excel to Access
I would like to set up a module in Excel that will export certain columns and rows to Access, if they meet a certain criteria. In my spreadsheet, my column headings are in row 30 and my actual data starts in row 33.

In that data, if the values in column AG are greater than 2, I would like to export columns B, C, I, J, Q, R, T, AG, and AH - BQ to an Access Database titled WOWData.


Repeating a Column
I'm designing a columnar report that will span to many pages down and accross.

In order to have the column headers print on every down page, you place them in the "Page Header" section, that I know.

My question is, if there a way to make the first column repeat on every accross page in the same fashion?

I guess what I'm looking is for a similar function that Excel has to repeat Row 1 / Column A on every page. I know I can export to Excel, but the client doesn't have Office, and they will use Access Run time.

If I can incorporate Excel spreadsheet with my Access Application using only Access Run Time, that would be great, if not, Is there another way. manually or with VBA


Exporting more than 65000 Access rows to Excel
I have Office 2007 and am trying to export a table with 500,000 rows of data into an Excel worksheet. However it is not letting me do this.

Since Excel 2007 has capacity for upwards of 1 million rows why can't I export a huge Access table.

Access results export to Excel
I use Access 2007 and Excel 2007. My Access query results are over 600,000 line items. Excel 2007 worksheets have over 1,000,000 rows unlike older versions.

Why, when I am exporting to Excel, am I limited to 65,000 lines? (There must a way to have my Access results exported
to one Excel worksheet with ONE step


Export Filtered Results to Excel Tabs
I would like to export a query to Excel. We have one column in the query that we use for grouping results (i.e. regions such as "North", "South", etc.).

What I would like to do is for every region (i.e. "North", "South") take the results and export them to a separate tab within an Excel workbook. So, in the end, I would find a "North" tab with all results related to the north region and likewise for the "South" region.

I know some VBA, but I just don't know the code for completing such a task.


CSV Opens Fine In Excel Not in Access
I have a very large CSV file, around 2.5million rows. The file is delimited by a comma and opens (well the first 1,064,000 rows) successfully in Excel. However in Access, where I want to aggregate this down, it is not.

For example in column F is a text string, "Where," In Excel, that entire string is in column F, however in Access, "Where" is in column F," is in column G and therefore everything else is pushed over by one column.

I can't use excel to "replace all" comma's since I can't see the whole file (again only the first million lines, I'm in excel 2007). I've tried a few dozen different input methods from Access but I'm not getting the best results either.


Which Export to Excel Method is Simpler to Implement?
I am creating an Access database that will be created from several Excel workbooks. The final results will need to be in both an Access report, and an Excel worksheet. The database will beonline,

I can think of 2 methods in which this could work:

1) I link the Excel workbooks to the Access database. I take the input values and make a form in Access to be filled out. The form is filled out and spits the values back to Excel. Excel performs its calculated formulas. Access then grabs the resulting values and fills out a report with them.

However, I am unsure if this is possible in terms of returning values back to Excel, then grabbing the results?

2) I recreate the work of the Excel workbooks in an Access database. I then use VBA to export the results to an Excel template.

I am not sure how to do this, but I have found this page: [LINK] Unfortunately, whenever I run the MDB it gives me an error.

I would think the 1st method would be much easier if possible. I will be using Access 2007.


Exporting Table via macro W/Out Format
need a little help here. I'm trying to create a macro that will run a series of queries and export the table it generates without formatting the text file. right now the export keeps the rows and columns with borders around the text and headers. what I need is data to be delimited with the text running without borders and field headers. Is this possible to run as a macro? I can do this via a TXT export and not selecting the export option of formatting and layout, then assign my delimiters and adjust the columns. Is there any way to automate this with a macro
