This is the code from the above link

Private Sub ExportOneTable()

'EXPORTS TABLE IN ACCESS DATABASE TO EXCEL
'REFERENCE TO DAO IS REQUIRED

Dim strExcelFile As String
Dim strWorksheet As String
Dim strDB As String
Dim strTable As String
Dim objDB As Database

'Change Based on your needs, or use
'as parameters to the sub
strExcelFile = "C:\My Documents\MySpreadSheet.xls"
strWorksheet = "WorkSheet1"
strDB = "C:\My Documents\MyDatabase.mdb"
strTable = "MyTable"

Set objDB = OpenDatabase(strDB)

 'If excel file already exists, you can delete it here
 If Dir(strExcelFile) <> "" Then Kill strExcelFile

objDB.Execute _
  "SELECT * INTO [Excel 8.0;DATABASE=" & strExcelFile & _
   "].[" & strWorksheet & "] FROM " & "[" & strTable & "]"
objDB.Close
Set objDB = Nothing

End Sub
