YOU CAN USE FOLLOWING FUNCTION. YOU HAVE TO PASS THE RECORDSET AS AN ARGUMENT.

THIS WILL CREATE A NEW EXCEL FILE AND EXPORT THE ENTIRE RECORDSET TO THE EXCEL FILE.

CHECK FOR TWO COMMENTED LINES IN THE CODE AND REMOVE THE COMMENT AS PER YOUR NEED.

REGARDS,

RAHUL
Public Sub ExportToExcel(ByVal rs As ADODB.RecordSet)
    Dim oApp As New Excel.Application
    Dim oBook As Excel.Workbook
    Dim oWorkSheet As Excel.Worksheet
    Dim oField As ADODB.Field
    Dim c As Long
    Dim i As Long
 
    On Error GoTo ErrorHandler
 
    Set oBook = oApp.Workbooks.Add
    Set oWorkSheet = oBook.Worksheets.Item(1)
    
    oApp.Visible = False
    
    With oWorkSheet
        c = Asc("A")
        For Each oField In rs.Fields
            .Range(Chr(c) & "1").Value = oField.Name
            .Range(Chr(c) & "1").Font.Bold = True
            c = c + 1
        Next
        
        i = 2
        'IF YOUR RECORDSET CURSOR LOCATION IS LOCAL, THEN REMOVE COMMENT FROM FOLLOWING LINE
        'If rs.RecordCount > 0 Then rs.MoveFirst
        rs.MoveFirst
        While Not rs.EOF
            c = Asc("A")
            For Each oField In rs.Fields
                .Range(Chr(c) & i).Value = rs(oField.Name)
                c = c + 1
            Next
            i = i + 1
            rs.MoveNext
        Wend
    End With
    
    oApp.Visible = True
 
    Exit Sub
 
    GoTo CleanExit
 
ErrorHandler:
    MsgBox Err.Number & ": " & Err.Description
CleanExit:
    If Not oApp Is Nothing Then Set oApp = Nothing
    If Not oBook Is Nothing Then Set oBook = Nothing
    If Not oWorkSheet Is Nothing Then Set oWorkSheet = Nothing
End Sub

the fuction does not seems to be working .

thats how i making a function call

 Call ExportToExcel(rsGetActualData).

the error is
3704: Object is not allowed when the object is closed.

i still beleive the anomaly is at Set rsGetActualData = cmd.Execute(ra)
ra = 2 but rsGetActualData.recordcount throws an error.

The recordset which is passed to the function should be open at the time of function call. I have tried to execute the function and it 100000 % working dear...!   I am using the same function for all my projects from last 8 years...!

Just make sure the recordset object is not closed. Check your cursor type also.... ( client side or server side )  Make necessary changes , and you will definitely get the data in Excel.

Confirmed. This code works perfectly.
Don't forget to add the reference to Excel.
