Repeated use of DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet to the same Excel destination file will add each query on a tab with the same name as the query.

i.e.,
DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acExport, acSpreadsheetTypeExcel9, "Product", "c:\test.xls", True
DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acExport, acSpreadsheetTypeExcel9, "ProductCategory", "c:\test.xls", True
DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acExport, acSpreadsheetTypeExcel9, "ProductGroup", "c:\test.xls", True

produced a spreadsheet at c:\ called test.xls with three tabs, one called Product, one called ProductCategory, and the last called ProductGroup

You should delete the Excel file before repeating or you'll (potentially) get unexpected behavior.

Hope this helps.

(That assumes that you're using MS Access...if not, then I'm pretty sure my method won't work.)

Form what I can understand Execl can read sql staments.  If you are using a sql or access database you can write a stored proceedure to execute multiple queries.  Here is the sytax

create proceedure Myproceedure
as
Select yourColumn
Form YourTable
Where YourConditions
go
Select yourColumn
Form YourTable
Where YourConditions
go

...and so on


Then all you have to do in Execl of any other client side app is run

Exec MyProceedure
go


Note you must be connected to sql or save the stored prceedure as a Macro.

Hope this helps;)
