This is the code behind a button on a form which runs a query called “m1Revenue1”.  I would like to add some code which opens up Excel and writes the query result to Sheet1 of the Excel workbook.  Thanks.
Private Sub Cmd4_Q4_Click()
On Error GoTo Err_Cmd4_Q4_Click

    Dim stDocName As String

    stDocName = "m1Revenue1"
    DoCmd.OpenQuery stDocName, acNormal, acEdit

Exit_Cmd4_Q4_Click:
    Exit Sub

Err_Cmd4_Q4_Click:
    MsgBox Err.Description
    Resume Exit_Cmd4_Q4_Click
    
End Sub

We don't have access to the C drive.  I entered the path to my shared drive.  The query ran but threw a message "file creation failure".  My shared drive path is a bit convoluted.  Is it not possible to write code which opens up an Excel workbook, write the query output to it on Sheet1?  I can then save the Excel to wherever I want.  Thanks.
