Macro to export access data to existing excel worksheet
Thank you for taking the time to report an issue.
What's wrong... Please write below.
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?
To bring data into Excel from Access, you can copy data from an Access datasheet and paste it into an Excel worksheet, connect to an Access database from an Excel worksheet, or export Access data into an Excel worksheet.
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
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
into [excel 8.0;database=C:\Documents and Settings\bconner\Desktop\Access to Excel.xls].[Tri AR By Rej]
When using the above after the first time it says the the table already exists and then bombs.
Is there an alternative way of exporting an Access query to a specific worksheet within an excel workbook?
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?
Is there a way around this? The error message I get when trying to run the macro is "Cannot Update, Datebase or object is read only
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.
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.
