Generally speading, a code like:

DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acExport,...

should do it. But a more relaible method is to define Excel object and assign the desired values in one or more cells in excel.

If you could describe your use, we can choose the best solution for you.

the local database

From access 2007 to excel 2007

right now I am using the below code

DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acExport, , "qryDelRepCAN", "J:\data\Manager\Test.xlsx", True, "Canada"

Canada is the named range

the issues is the named range

So the qry data can either expand or contract depending on the data so I need a dynamic named range. However when I try to do this it still doesnt work
