Hi

I have a protected database which does not let me add modules, macros, queries or specifications to it.
I need to export the table from the database called "maintable" to excel.

Because i cant add a specification i can't use DoCmd.TransferText, so used DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet

I know the following code works if run from a module ....

DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acExport, acSpreadsheetTypeExcel9, "maintable", "C:\test.xls", True

but when i put it into a vbscript then it doesnt work.
I get error saying ...
"The microsoft jet database engine could not find the object 'C:\test.xls'. Make sure the object exists and that you spell its name and the path name correctly
error code 800A0BC3

I cant figure out why this is happening. Any ideas?

This code works fine:

SET oAcc = CREATEOBJECT("Access.Application")

oAcc.OpenCurrentDatabase "RemoteDB.mdb"

oAcc.DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet 1, 8, "MyTable", "C:\test.xls", True ' acExport = 1, acSpreadsheetTypeExcel9 = 8
