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

Open in new window

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.
