I have a simple Macro in Access 2007 using the 'Output To' Action to Export a query to an Excel Spreadsheet.

Works perfectly.
However, what I need is to be able to specify to output that query to FileA.xlsx, Sheet 1.
The next query to FileA.xlsx, Sheet 2
The next query to FileA.xlsx, Sheet 3

do-able?

Clarification please>

Have you 1 query or more than 1 query?

Or . . .

Is the same query reuslts sent to Sheet1, then Sheet2, then Sheet3, . . . in a cyclic manner?  If so, are you trying to track which sheet either was the last sheet or should be the next sheet?

No tracking needed.
No cycles.

I will literally hand input each query into the Macro myself (I am brand new to this, and fascinated with the automation Macros are going to provide me).

I will assign one action line in the macro to output queryA to sheet/tabA in FileA.xlsx
I will then assign the next action in the macro to output queryB to sheet/tabB still in FileA.xlsx
Then the next action in the macro to output queryC to sheet/tabC still in FileA.xlsx

I want to end up with 3 (and/or many more) query outputs all in the SAME XLSX workbook file, just on separate sheets.

"do-able?"
Sure, but not easily with "Macros"
