Exporting and sorting data in Excel from Access

I am exporting data (5 queries) from Access into an existing Excel spreadsheet (5 worksheets) using CopyFromRecordset. This, however, does not preserve the sorting order of the data. Thus,

This code works fine for the first worksheet but fails on the subsequent worksheet with "Method Range of object _Global failed" error.

Data Format when exporting from Access to Excel 97-2003
I'm having a few problems when exporting a dataset from Access to Excel (both 2003 - not by choice) and I was hoping someone on this forum could help, seeing as I've pretty much hit dead ends everywhere else.

Basically the central them of my question is this: how can I set output formats for the data when exporting from an Access table to Excel 1997-2003? which - no matter what format it's entered in in Access, or which format the field properties are set to - comes out as dd-m-yy.

In this case, I'd like to have the data in short date format, I.e. dd/mm/y.

Currently I'm exporting the table through a macro - built in the noob macro builder inherent in Access, I.e. no digging in the coding behind the scenes (I'm pretty adept at VBA in Excel, but have yet to tackle this in Access.


Exporting access report to specific excel cells
I'm currently extracting data from Access forms into an excel file. The data contains multiple characteristic fields such as Name, Age, Address, etc. organized in a way that I would like to duplicate in excel.

I know how to use the extracting tool which brings up all of the data (not just individual form data) into a giant table in excel. Currently, I am manually splitting up the data and creating separate sheets which then requires formatting to make it presentable in the format I want.

I am wondering if I can set up an Access macro or function that will export the data in an object to specific cells on an excel sheet.

Also, the forms include a picture of the person and I've been requested to include the picture in excel. Is there anyway to includea picture when exporting data from Access to Excel?

How do I make a form show up when I am exporting from access to excel?
Right now I have my program opening up excel and throwing data in there. However it takes about 30 seconds to populate. How do I make a box show up in front of excel to say like"Exporting Data" and will stop when it is done with the code?

I can make it do it behind excel but can't make it a higher priority than excel if that makes sense.


Help with Advanced Exporting
I'm new to Access but have developed an model which I'd like to export into Excel. The database will house large amounts of payroll data, however, exporting will be narrowed to specific weeks or a range of weeks.

The resulting Excel file will then be imported into SAP as a journal entry.

Because of these requirements, I need help learning how to do more advanced exporting techniques. My boss showed me really quickly one day how I could enter a value on the Excel file which was to contain the export, and Access could read that parameter and return the specific week's data I required.


Access to Excel
I'm exporting data from Access to Excel using "DoCmd.OutputTo" and it works fine. However, I need the data formatted in Excel and would like to know if there is another way to export into Excel using a custom template. Or a way to automate formatting of the excel spreadsheet


Import, export, and link data between Access and Excel
You can share data between Access and Excel in many ways. You can copy data from an open worksheet (worksheet: The primary document that you use in Excel to store and work with data. Also called a spreadsheet. A worksheet consists of cells that are organized into columns and rows; a worksheet is always stored in a workbook.) and paste it into an Access datasheet, import a worksheet into an Access database, or simply load an Access datasheet into Excel using the Analyze it with Excel command. This topic explains in detail how to exchange data between Access and Excel by importing, exporting, or linking to data.


Exporting all tables in access database to excel at once
I have a database with roughly 100 tables in it, and I would like to essentially "back-up" all of the data in the tables by exporting them to excel spreadsheets (one spreadsheet per table). I know I could manually export each table one by one, but this is not really what I was goin for. Anyone have any ideas as to how I could go about exporting multiple tables to .xls files


Is possible to do specific formatting when exporting from access 97 to excel?
I am exporting from an access 97 table to excel. I can do that without and issue but I was wondering if it was possible to tell all of the column headers to be vertical instead of horizontal in the OutputTo statement?
It rebuilds the excel file every time it makes the table and exports it.


Exporting from Excel to Access - leading zeros
I am having a problem exporting information from Excel to Access. Many employee ID's begin with leading zero's. When I export new data into Access the leading zero's disappear. I have to manually correct all the data before I can use it. Does anyone out there know how to import this kind of data so I don't lose the leading zero's?


Exporting To Access from Excel(Access not installed)
I have made up an excel workbook that exports excel data to an Access database.

This is done over a network and some machines don't have Access installed so question is, can I still export excel data into a Access database file even though Access itself may not be installed on that machine. I am not wanting to open Access itself up.


Export query to excel
I'm using Access 2000.

I've done some searching around and found similar posts online but I'm having a tough time getting my head round this one.

I have a query called "QryMonthlySales" with about 10 fields and 400 rows of data. I want to export the query to excel, saving the excel file to a folder location chosen by the user via a form.

Before exporting the query to excel, I want to give the user the option to specify the time period. I have a form which allows the user to select a start and end date. Before exporting the query, I will need to select the data via a where clause, something like Period >= txtStartDate and Period <= txtEndDate.

Also, when exporting the data, the column headings are given as the actual field names not as the caption. This looks quite ugly and will be annoying for the user to have to rename


Exporting more than 60K rows from Access to Excel - 2007/2010
Is it possible to change a setting in either Access or Excel so that more than 60K rows can be exported directly into Excel? Would like to bypass the step of exporting to .csv first.


Exporting Datasheet to Excel
When exporting a data sheet with 800,000 rows of data, 26 columns, Access will only export 65,000~ rows as if it thinks it has limitations of Access 2003 / Excel 2003.

Any ideas how I can "flip a switch" to get this to export properly


Exporting from a Access Table to Excel PivotTable
I was wondering how I would go about exporting data from a table in access to a pivotTable in Excel. I know how to set up a Pivot Table so that is nothing new for me, but the question ishow to set up the Pivot Table one time, and then at the simple press of a button in access the data from my access table is imported into my PivotTable and I can view the most up to dateinformation.

Merging Queries/Excel
I created a 2 Queries. and exporting it to excel. However, they are on separate excel docs.

How can I merge the two excel together in access? (I can't merge the queries together because.access says the query is too complex)

is there a macro I can call to merge the two queries? and then exporting?


Sub grouping convert to flat file
I'm trying to process an Excel file that contains sub groupings/outlines in the data.

I would like to convert this to a flat file for import and further processing into an Access database. Is it possible to do this without writing custom VBA code? I've tried exporting the data but the sub headers end up as data rows.

I've also tried exporting as XML, DBF etc and re-importing into Access but that doesn't work either.

The reason the Excel file has groupings in the first place is because the third party product we're using only exports in that format.


Export with date
I have created some daily reports ( 20 different reports) of my team in access and exporting that data to excel with Macros. While exporting, is there any way I can export with date in the file name. Presently, I am adding the date in the file name manually after exporting. Its a time consuming process for me
