I have query results that I am attempting to export into Excel. However, the Export menu choice is greyed out. Any ideas on why that may be?

    If you select a table in the database window, is the export to excel option available then?

    Basic I know, but can you confirm that this is a Select query- not an update/append/make-table query?

    Which version of Office?

    Yes, I can export a table.
    It is a select query.

    I guess I could make a table, and export that........
