hanks fyed, this worked really well.  I just have two questions, 1) when it copies to the excel sheet is there code that I can tell it to save that excel file to my hard drive?  Like FileSave C:Temp\Filename.xls? and 2) can I change a parameter and have it include the column headings from the Access query.  Right now it just skips the first row where the headings are suppose to go.  Thanks

This export worked.  I used
 wbk.SaveAs FileName:= "C:\temp\filename.xlsx"
to save the file to my drive.  

Thanks
