Macro to export access data to existing excel worksheet

Macro to export access data to existing excel worksheet
Views: 316
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

Access Data Export Icon
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

Import, export, and link data between Access and Excel Icon
There are several ways to exchange data between Microsoft Office Access and Microsoft Office Excel.
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.
 

Exporting Query Results to an existing Excel Workbook

Exporting Query Results to an existing Excel Workbook Icon
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

Export Queries to Named Excel Worksheets Icon
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
 

Export 2003 Access Records to 2003 Excel Template

Export 2003 Access Records to 2003 Excel Template Icon
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?

How to export Access query to specific excel worksheet each month Icon
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.

When using the above after the first time it says the the table already exists and then bombs.

Export Access to Excel : from a specific row

Export Access to Excel : from a specific row Icon
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.

You can bring the data from an Excel workbook into Access in many ways. You can copy data from an open worksheet and paste it into an Access datasheet, import a worksheet into a new or existing table, or link to a worksheet from an Access database. This topic explains in detail how to import or link to Excel data from Access.
 

Automate Export to Excel using macro

Automate Export to Excel using macro Icon
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.
 

Import Excel- append to Access Related Tables

Import Excel- append to Access Related Tables Icon
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.
