Hey dmitry, how goes it?

Can you open the exported spreadsheet normally having exported it?
Does it perform any better if you skip the explicit Excel object creation (not ideal I know)...

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
DoCmd.OutputTo acOutputReport, "ConsIncGroup", acFormatXLS, "C:\Data\ConsIncGroup.xls", 0
            'DoCmd.OutputTo acOutputReport, "repIncomeStatement_LastYearsCons_Grouped", acFormatXLS, , -1
           
DoEvents

Dim mysheet As Object, mybook As Object, xlApp As Object

Set mybook = GetObject("C:\Data\ConsIncGroup.xls")
Set xlApp = mybook.Application
Set mysheet = mybook.Sheets(1)
xlApp.Visible = True
'etc etc
------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Or - if that doesn't help - perhaps giving up and making a file copy in code and opening that copy - deleting the "original" export when all's done.
