Naming an output file

I am attempting to output club records from an Access database to an XLS format on a 'per club' basis using a command button and a parameter query.

I can output the single club file with this line:

DoCmd.OutputTo acQuery, "qryRollCall2XLS",
"MicrosoftExcelBiff8*.xls)", "E:\###\Database.xls", True, "", 0

using the parameter query.

I then attempted to make separate XLS files per club with this which is based on code I use to make RTF output from a report.

DoCmd.OutputTo acQuery, "qryRollCall2XLS",
"MicrosoftExcelBiff8 *.xls)", "E:\###\"  "Database_ID" & Me![Club
Ident] & ".xls", True, "", 0

I have not adapted it correctly because the error message reports that it can't find the field [Club Ident].

The next task will be to learn about making the separate XLS files without the need to use the command button 60 times.

to avoid the command button


create table with your clubs.... tblClubs

Function ExportClubs()

Dim I as Integer
Dim MyDB as Database
Dim MyRec as Recordset

Set MyDB = CurrentDB
Set MyRec = MyDB.OpenRecordset("SELECT DatabaseID, ClubIdent FROM tblClubs",dbopendynaset,dbreadonly)

If MyRec.eof and Myrec.bof then
     I = Msgbox("NoRecords in tblClubs",vbokonly, "Error")
Else
MyRec.MoveFirst

For I = 0 to MyRec.recordcount -1
       MyDb.QueryDefs("qryRollCall3XLS").SQL = "SELECT * FROM qryRollCall2XLS WHERE ClubID ='" & MyRec!ClubID & "'"
       DoCmd.OutputTo acQuery, "qryRollCall3XLS","MicrosoftExcelBiff8 *.xls)", "E:\###\" & MyRec!DatabaseID & MyRec!ClubId & ".xls", True, "", 0
       MyRec.movenext
End
End If
MyRec.close
MyDb.close
Set MyRec = Nothing
Set MyDB = Nothing

End Function

Thanks for your help.

I am testing Item One first;

I notice a closing ) without an opening (

and in all the other pieces of code.

Is that confirmed?

Please also confirm that subsequent code is designed to produce the 60 files, in which case the points will be revised to 500 because I intended a separate question for that.
