Hi
I am creating a report in my access application and need to merge cells in the report the following code won't work the syntax is wrong help much appreciated. The output is dependant on the number of records so i must use nStock code to denote increment in records.
The original code
 wsOrder.Range("c" & nStkCode).value = recEquipment.Fields("Description") is not suitable as the record overflows. I tried this to merge the cells but getting error.

wsOrder.Range("C"& nStkCode ": E"& nStkCode).MergeCells = True
Thanks

The syntax seems a bit off, try using:
wsOrder.Range("C" & nStkCode & ": E" & nStkCode).MergeCells = True
