How are you doing it now?  Via the TransferSpreadsheet method?

How are you doing it now?

The following code will create a new workbook and add new worksheets.  The Sheets.Add method accepts several parameters, so you can tell it where to insert the new sheet.

You can also use the CopyFromRecordset method to create a recordset in your Access code, and paste that recordset to a cell or block of cells in your spreadsheet.  
Public Sub OutputToExcel()

    Dim xl As Excel.Application
    Dim wbk As Excel.Workbook
    Dim sht As Excel.Worksheet
    Dim rs As DAO.Recordset
    
    Set xl = CreateObject("Excel.application")
    xl.Visible = True
    
    Set wbk = xl.Workbooks.Add
        
    Set sht = wbk.Sheets.Add
    sht.Name = "New Sheet1"
    sht.Range("A1").Value = "This is a test"
    
    Set sht = wbk.Sheets.Add
    sht.Name = "New Sheet2"
    sht.Range("A2") = "This is another test"

    Set sht = wbk.Sheets.Add
    sht.Name = "From Recordset"
    Set rs = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("qry_Numbers", , dbFailOnError)
    sht.Range("A2").CopyFromRecordset rs
    rs.Close
    Set rs = Nothing

    Set xl = Nothing
    
End Sub

So that tells us how you are opening a workbook but not how you are transferring the data.  Look at fyed's example; that should get you started.

asarda,

Have you tried to look at my code and understand how it works.  It really is simple to add new worksheets and fill them with data.

When you reply, it makes it easier on those of us that are trying to help if you would identify who you are replying to.

To early bind you'll need to set a reference to the Excel object library.

In the VBE (VBA editor) select the Tools menu then References.  Scroll through the list to find Microsoft Excel 12.0 Object Library and check the box next to it.
12.0 is Excel 2007.  If you have 2003, it'll be the Microsoft Excel 11.0 Oject library.  Etc.

Sorry, forgot about the reference.

I always use early binding in the development phase, then go back and change all of the declarations of those to:

    Dim xl As Object          'Excel.Application
    Dim wbk As Object      'Excel.Workbook
    Dim sht As Object        'Excel.Worksheet

When you use early binding (as mentioned by omgang) you get the benefit of intellisense, so that when you type the dot (.) after an object, you get the list of its properties and methods.  But once you are done with development, it is ideal to go back and change these declarations to Object and remove the reference to the particular object libraries (Excel, Word, PowerPoint, Outlook, ...).  This way, the code is less dependant on a particular version of Office being installed on the users machine.

Sorry, this must have falled off my radar.  Fyed's response was helpful.  I would like to close it out and give him credit.
