DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet Function

I'd like the spreadsheet to open immediately for the user once they click this button, the same as happens using Docmd.OutputTo.  Is there a parameter I'm missing ??  See attached code.  You'll see I've replaced the Docmd.OutputTo with DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet.  Ths is because a memo field gets truncated with the Docmd.OutputTo function if it's bigger than 255 characters, but works sweet using DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet.   So if you can enlighten me on how to automatically open the spreadsheet I'd appreciate it greatly!  
Private Sub btnOpusRAMMFormat_Click()
    Dim strInput As Integer
    Dim strFileName As String
    Dim strText As String
    On Error Resume Next
    strInput = InputBox("Enter Status")
    Forms![FrmMisc]![txtStatus] = strInput
    strText = InputBox("Enter any text you might want this included in the file name, eg Nov2007.  DO NOT INCLUDE ANY BLANKS!!")
    strFileName = "M:\ThamesC0901\Reports\OpusRAMMExportStatus" & strInput & strText & ".xls"
    DoCmd.SetWarnings False
    DoCmd.OpenQuery "delOpusRammExport"
    DoCmd.OpenQuery "appOpusExport"
    DoCmd.OpenQuery "updOpusRammStep1"
    DoCmd.OpenQuery "updOpusRammStep2"
    DoCmd.OpenQuery "delOpusRammExportTemp"
    DoCmd.OpenQuery "appOpusExportTemp"
    
    DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acExport, , "OpusRAMMExportTemp", strFileName, , , True
   
    'DoCmd.OutputTo acOutputQuery, "qryOpusExportRAMMFormat", acFormatXLS, strFileName, True
    MsgBox "Finished. Check spreadsheet in M:\ThamesC0901\Reports\..."
    DoCmd.SetWarnings True

End Sub

Try adding this code after liine 22.  Modify as needed for your situation.

    Dim appxcel As Object
    Dim appexcel As Object
   
    Set appexcel = CreateObject("Excel.Application")

    Set appxcel = appexcel.Workbooks.Open(strFileName)
   
    appexcel.Visible = True

'Select Sheet1
    appexcel.Sheets("Sheet1").Select

You cannot open the spreadsheet automatically with Transfer spreadsheet
(See the help files on both Methods for more info)
