Hi. I have an access query that is broken down by week 1 through 4 for a specific period. I have done access exports to multiple worksheets but what i would like to do with this is export the query to certain cells on the same worksheet depending on the date and week (1-4). The period doesnt follow the regular month. Is there a way to take one query with vba and export it based on a parameter? Or is the easiest way to create 4 queries and export to each cell? Any help is appreciated.

You might start by describing table FY12, particularly why the Week and Day fields.  BTW Date, Day, Week, Month, Year, etc. are Access reserved words and should not be used as a field name.   I suggest FYDate as a name.

Here are a couple of built-in functions you may be interested in:

Using today's date

? WeekDay(Date(),vbSaturday)
? WeekDayName(WeekDay(Date(),vbSaturday),True,vbSaturday)
? DatePart("ww",Date(),vbSaturday,vbFirstFullWeek)

Press Alt+F11 to get to the VB Editor Window and type these function names in the Help window and select the Function return
