VBA Word Array, to Excel file
Hi guys lets say I have an array in word VBA of type:

MyArr ( Row, Column )

(Where Row and Column are Excel’s Sheet Row and Column)

I just need to export it to Excel (or excel file format) from a word VBA macro.

Good Points are given for this question....

You will need something like this.
Sub ArrayExcel()
    Dim xlApp As Excel.Application
    Dim xlWbk As Excel.Workbook
    Dim xlWks As Excel.Worksheet
    Dim r As Integer
    Dim c As Integer
    
    Set xlApp = New Excel.Application
    Set xlWbk = xlApp.Workbooks.Add
    xlApp.Visible = True
    Set xlWks = xlWbk.Sheets(1)
    For Each ffld In ActiveDocument.FormFields
        xlWks.Cells(r, c).Value = MyArr(r, c)
        c = c + 1
    Next ffld
    'xlWbk.SaveAs ....
    'xlWbk.Close
    'xlApp.Quit
End Sub

Oops. That was the unfinished version that I copied by mistake
Sub ArrayExcel2()
    Dim xlApp As Excel.Application
    Dim xlWbk As Excel.Workbook
    Dim xlWks As Excel.Worksheet
    Dim r As Integer
    Dim c As Integer
    
    Set xlApp = New Excel.Application
    Set xlWbk = xlApp.Workbooks.Add
    xlApp.Visible = True
    Set xlWks = xlWbk.Sheets(1)
    For r = 0 To UBound(MyArr, 1)
        For c = 0 To UBound(MyArr, 2)
            xlWks.Cells(r + 1, c + 1).Value = MyArr(r, c)
        Next c
    Next r
    
    'xlWbk.SaveAs ....
    'xlWbk.Close
    'xlApp.Quit
End Sub

Hey,

Like said, I would like to have that run in Microsoft Word VBA environment. Because the array comes from word document.

Any way to make the above code work in MS word VBA?

Thanks Friends

Love !

The code is written in Word VBA for running there.
I did forget to mention that you will need a set a reference (Tools/References in the Word VBA editor) to the Microsoft Excel Object Library.

It would run in Excel, but this very slightly tweaked version uses current Workbook instead of creating a new one.
'Dim xlApp As Excel.Application
    'Dim xlWbk As Excel.Workbook
    Dim xlWks As Excel.Worksheet
    Dim r As Integer
    Dim c As Integer
    
    'Set xlApp = Application New Excel.Application
    Set xlWbk = ActiveWorkbook
    'xlApp.Visible = True
    Set xlWks = xlWbk.Sheets(1)
    For r = 0 To UBound(MyArr, 1)
        For c = 0 To UBound(MyArr, 2)
            xlWks.Cells(r + 1, c + 1).Value = MyArr(r, c)
        Next c
    Next r
    
    'xlWbk.SaveAs ....
    'xlWbk.Close
    'xlApp.Quit

Even if it answers the question, it seems that there are not any better answers than this. The solution needs excel to run and it does not export directly to file. It also needs extra reference settings.

I prefer to export in .xml format  !
