I am developing an Access 2003 application using an Excel workbook.

How would I correct the following VBA code to edit an Excel file for column J as follows:

Private Sub StartDoc(filename)
 Dim xlApp As Object
 Dim xlWS As Object
 
 'open excel template
 Set xlApp = CreateObject("excel.application")

 xlApp.Workbooks.Open (filename)
 xlApp.Visible = True

 Set xlWS = xlApp.ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets
 
 xlWS.Columns.AutoFit
 xlApp.ScreenUpdating = True
 xlApp.ActiveWorkbook.Save
 
 xlWS.Range("J2:J65535").NumberFormat = "#,##0.00"
 
 xlApp.ScreenUpdating = True
 Set xlApp = Nothing
 
End Sub
