More Microsoft Query Columns

Using microsoft Query (wizard) on Excel 97/2000, how can I make a query with 200+ columns/fields (I'm brining in information from Access)?  Currently, every time I try to bring over 85-90 columns/fields from Access into Excel the query never happens.  And I need over 200 columns brought over at once.

Why don't you use multiple queries?  If you have a unique identifier for each record, you can hide it (to avoid repetition).  You can write a small VB macro to refresh these queries.
You can this code from Access to Export to Excel.  This on is set to copy two queries into the same workbook and 2 different sheets.

Just copy the one query or table you are using.

Dim objApp As Excel.Application
Dim objBook as Excel.Workbook
Dim objsheet1 as Excel.Worksheet
Dim objsheet2 as Excel.Worksheet

Dim db as Database
Dim rst1 as Recordset
Dim rst2 as Recordset

Set objApp = New Excel.Application
objApp.Visible = True  'If you want to see it work.
Set objBook = objApp.Workbooks.Add
Set objSheet1 = objBook.Worksheets(1)
Set objSheet2 = objBook.Worksheets(2)

objSheet1.Name = "FirstTable"
objSheet2.Name = "SecondTable"

Set db = Currentdb()
Set rst1 = db.OpenRecordset("qryFirstTable", dbOpenSnapShot)
Set rst2 = db.OpenRecordset("qrySecondTable", dbOpenSnapShot)

objSheet1.Range("A1").CopyFromRecordset rst1
objSheet2.Range("A1").CopyFromRecordset rst2

To yu108352:  I have tried multiple queries.  And while they work OK enough in Excel 97, they seem to cause problems in Excel 2000 and want to have a system that will avoid problems in both 97 & 2000.  Thank you anyway.
