Hi I have a VB form that allows the user to choose the name of a company from a drop down list. I want to use the selected value of the drop downl list as an input to a access query. The results of this query I want to export to excel using the doCmd.TransferSpreadSheet command. DoCmd.TSS allows u to give it the name of a table or the name of a Select query, but how do I make sure my query's input parameter gets included.

my query looks like
  "Select * from Companies where ID=[x]"

I need to input the value of x into the query before I do the TSS, any ideas?

thanks

You query should be this:

"Select * from Companies where ID='"& Forms!MyFormName!Combo25 &"' "

revise myFormName as you real form name
and Combo25 as the name of your drop down list

Confirm you have open the form when you do the TSS, so you will not need input the value

Best Regards

Ben
