Hi, I have an Access database with queries which references user defined function located in a module in the database.  The query runs fine in Access.  

I would like to run this query from VBA Excel so I can dump the results into my spreadsheet.  However, I am getting an error saying that my user defined function cannot be found: Run-time error '3085'  Undefined function 'userfunction' in expression.

Is there a work around to this?  I tried cutting and pasting the Access vba code for that function into the Excel module, but am getting the same error.

Thanks in advance!
