You can use the TransferSpreadsheet function in a Macro.

Create a macro and select TransferSpreadsheet,
Choose your table,
Set the Actions for the TransferSpreadsheet and in the Range set it to A3:F3,
Run the Macro and the required cells will be populated.

Here is it. You just need to change tblName.

Private Sub Button0_Click()
Dim xls As Excel.Application
Dim rs As DAO.Recordset
Dim j As Integer 'Quantity of fields in rs object
Set xls = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
xls.Visible = True
xls.Workbooks.Open "C:\Test.xls"
Set rs = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("SELECT BranchCode, Employee, [Salary Date], PostCurrency, PostAmount, Narration FROM tblName")
rs.MoveLast
rs.MoveFirst
For j = 0 To 5
    While Not rs.EOF
        Select Case j
        Case 0
        xls.Cells(rs.AbsolutePosition + 4, "A") = rs(j)
        rs.MoveNext
        Case 1
        xls.Cells(rs.AbsolutePosition + 4, "B") = rs(j)
        rs.MoveNext
        Case 2
        xls.Cells(rs.AbsolutePosition + 4, "C") = rs(j)
        rs.MoveNext
        Case 3
        xls.Cells(rs.AbsolutePosition + 4, "D") = rs(j)
        rs.MoveNext
        Case 4
        xls.Cells(rs.AbsolutePosition + 4, "E") = rs(j)
        rs.MoveNext
        Case 5
        xls.Cells(rs.AbsolutePosition + 4, "F") = rs(j)
        rs.MoveNext
        End Select
    Wend
    rs.MoveFirst
Next
End Sub
