I have both MS Office 2007 and MS Office 2010 installed on my PC. I am working in Access and my D/B is quite large. If I want to have the table in Access output to Excel, I need it to go to Excel 2010 due the size of the D/B. Excel 2007 limits me to 65K rows as Excel 2010 can handle over a million rows.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You

I need to know how to get the export to go to Excel 2010 not Excel 2007, which seems to be the default. I have no problems in exporting to Excel 2007. As noted in my question I have both versions of ofice on my PC

>>Excel 2007 limits me to 65K rows Not true.If you are using the xlsx or xlsm file formats in Excel 2007, you get the same number of rows and columns (~1 MM rows by ~16 K columns) as in Excel 2010.

In any event, you should be able to use either:DoCmd.OutputTo acOutputTable, "NameOfTable", acFormatXLSX, "C:\folder\subfolder\Export.xlsx"orDoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acExport, acSpreadsheetTypeExcel12Xml, "NameOfTable", "C:\folder\subfolder\Export.xlsx"

<No points wanted>
With:
DoCmd.OutputTo
...you can tell Excel to Open the Excel file just created, immediately after the export.
DoCmd.OutputTo acOutputTable, "NameOfTable", acFormatXLSX, "C:\folder\subfolder\Export.xlsx",True
