Macro to export access data to existing excel worksheet

I have a macro within my access database that exports data to an excel worksheet and this works great. However I now want to add data to an "existing" excel worksheet ie one that already has data in it from a previous export from access.

Access Data Export
I'm trying to trasnfer an access query into a specific excel sheet.

What I have tried to do is to have a macro or module which tranfer my query into a specific worksheet within a workbook. Since I have to do this exercise once a weel, I do not want the module to create a new "version" of the data export, but simply overwrite the existing data in the worksheet with the new or updated data.

I have tried with transferspreedsheet and to write the following module:
DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acExport, , "qryNameHere", "C:\YourFullPathHere\Book1.xls", False, "NewSheetName"

How can avoid multiple tabs and make the macro/module overwrite the existing tab. Am I doing something wrong in the code or?


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.


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.


Exporting Query Results to an existing Excel Workbook
I have queries that displays email addresses of our employees in each department. Due to employees leaving from time to time, these queries are updated regularly to accomodate for those changes. I also have a large Email Contact workbook in Excel with each department having its own worksheet tab.

What I have been doing is creating an Export macro in Access and using the Transfer Spreadsheet action to export each query to its own excel spreadsheet into a directory. Then I would paste the updated results into the email contact workbook.

Is there an easier way to export the query results into the corresponding tab in the existing excel workbook, updating/overwriting the old data


Export Queries to Named Excel Worksheets
I am trying to export multiple queries into existing worksheets within the same spreadsheet, but instead of the export overwriting within the existing worksheets, it is creating additional worksheets with the same name plus a "1" suffix. I could rename the queries to the worksheet names, but would prefer to leave the query naming conventions and just specify the name of the worksheet that I want to export to

I am on Access 2010 and the code is as follows:-

DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acExport, acSpreadsheetTypeExcel9, "12 Monthly Day 6 5R", MyPath & "\Day 6 Delivery.xls", False, "5 Region"

I want to export query "12 Monthly Day 6 5R"
into file "Day 6 Delivery.xls"
and overwrite worksheet "5 Region


How to export Access query to specific excel worksheet each month
I have an Access Database with 3 reports that I would like to export to excel each month. I would like for all three reports to export to the same workbook just to different tabs. I used theselect into below but it doesn't work after the first export.

Export 2003 Access Records to 2003 Excel Template
I am trying to export records to an excel template where each record in access is a new template in the worksheet. When I transferSpreadsheet, I get each Access record to equal a row in excel which is not what I need.

I need each access record to populate a new "template" worksheet. If I have 20 records in access, I should end up with 20 worksheets in excel.

Also, I need to populate certain pre-defined fields in the spreadsheet with the access information. For instance, I may need to send field1 in access to C4 in excel; field2 to E5; and so on.

or do I continue to export rows to excel and then run macros in excel to reformat and reposition the data in different worksheets?


Macro to Export to Excel
I have a macro that exports (transfer spreadsheet) queries into excel. But since I have put a password to modify the data in excel, the macro can't export the data into excel.

Export Access to Excel : from a specific row
I have Access 2010 and I have 46 queries each one is a specific site data hence 46. I export them to excel and send it to customer. Everything so far was fine until two new requirements got included.

New template was designed with a picture Logo in Row A1; row 2 has a note; row 3 has the field names (slightly re-worded compared to queries but the positions remain same); row 4 is where the data starts.

Now I want my macro (which I have created to export these 46 queries into excel) to export the data alone (without field names) starting from row 4. I already have these 46 uniquely named excel files (goes by site name which is what is defined in the macro export command too). Now I don't know how to tell access to export data only from row 4

Can Anyone please help I need to run these reports tomorrow and trying to get a fix for this process so that I need not copy paste from excel to excel.


Import Excel- append to Access Related Tables
I have been trying to import an excel data worksheet to Access where the worksheet data gets split up to related Access tables. I have success doing this using the Access excel import function followed by the table analyzer (to split and relate the tables) if all the Access tables have no exixting data or the tables don't exist yet. In this case the foreign key relationships are all established easily using the table analyzer. However the key generated by the table analyzer are numbered sequentially from 1 so the keys aren't going to work in my existing tables with existing records when I try to append to existing data in my tables.

A simple example would be an invoice that has foreign keys from a customer table and a product table.

My excel worksheet would contain all the data fields and data needed for appending the invoice, customer and product table.

Trying to run a macro in Excel from inside Access
I've been opening comma delimited files in Access, used an Excel function to re-save those files in .xls which Access readily understands, then opening said files and running a query on them to organize them.

Now the file needs to go to Excel where it is entered into a worksheet with a certain heading.

Problem is when opening the .xls converted file in Excel, no macros show up. If I open a blank worksheet in Excel my macro shows up. I lowered the security settings to the most basic level in Excel.

How do I make the macro show up in the file opened in Excel through the Access VBA, so I can run it?


vba for export and import
First, to export the data in a query to an excel file, overwriting the existing file

and

Second, to import an existing excel file and append it to an existing access table.

If I use the ribbon buttons to do this I get sorts of dialog boxes popping up - is it possible to write vba in which I can specify the various options, so it will do it seamlessly? -Either with or without making use of the Saved Import / Export feature?


How to export an unsaved query to a new excel workbook?
I would like to generate the SQL text for data to export to an excel workbook. Further, I would like the workbook to have no saved location - just a new workbook (the default "book1", "book2".).

Lastly, the format of the data (pivot table, datasheet.) should also be optional.

I know access must be capable of this, because pushing the "Export to excel" button does exactly what I'm looking for, with any active query or table. Is there any way to harnessthe automation of the "Export to Excel" button through VB?

Everywhere I look seems only to have ways to export an existing query to an existing workbook.


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.


Access export excel file with macro help
I am currently working on a project that involves running a macro off access to export an excel file with the appropriate queries. So far I have been successful in doing that. The next step is where I am stuck, well a couple of things.

1. Is there a way to automatically open your exported excel file after running your macro off access?

2. After the export is complete all of the data is arranged how I want on 2 worksheets. However, I need a way to enable a macro to automatically format the information (which I have created, but don't know how/where to save it appropriately).

But the thing is, since the database is being constantly updated, and I need to export information from that database several times a day, and the formatting macro needs to be applied everytime I export this file (which isn't a problem if I was the only user).

Also, other people are exporting the same information but without the formatting because they don't have the right formatting macro that I have created.

Is there a way to integrate the formatting macro I have created to this specific file forevery user that tries to export this same file?


Export to Excel
Have an issue exporting to excel. I am using MS Access 2007. The query to be exported contains over 130 columns. If I try to make a table out of it, I get a message saying "record is too large". The query runs fine when opened directly. I can also export the query using the excel export button (important - I have to choose the option "Export Data with Formatting and Layout"). But when I try to use the TransferSpreadsheet macro action or command, it pops up the "Enter Paramter Value" window (same occurs if I use the excel export button and do not select the option "Export Data with Formating and Layout"). I tried to check the apprently wrong expressions but the queries work fine and I guess it is related to the fact that the records are too large. My question is, how can I still use a macro to automate the export? I do not want to do the export manually as I have over 30 queries to export to different excel worksheets. thx


export data to excel
Suppose I have a recordset as follows:

Order No. Item Qty
001 a 10
001 b 10
002 a 5

Can I export the recordset to excel on seperate worksheet (same workbook) by different order no?

I mean Order No. 001 in one worksheet and Order No. 002 in another worksheet


Exporting Records to Specific Worksheets and Fields
Right now I have a main table in my database where I am trying to export a group of 50 or so records containing about 100 fields each to excel.

The problem is, my current export code creates a whole new excel sheet with new formatting. I would like to instead add my records to a given worksheet and to have the records start populating at a given row.

An example would be for the data to populate the data sheet "Worksheet 1" at row 11, column A.
