Subroutine to export query results and open Excel File

I have gotten a lot of help on EE with creating a form that will allow the user to automatically import a spreadsheet into a table.  

Now, I'd like to create a subroutine that I can call from a button that will export a query (based on this imported table) into Excel, then open the Excel document.

Can someone help with this?

Use the default Macro available in MS Access for exporting a query to excel sheet. or use the code.

Dim Output_Path_And_File As String
Output_Path_And_File = "C:\ThePath\TheFile.xlsm"
DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acExport, acSpreadsheetTypeExcel12, "QueryName", Output_Path_And_File, True,""

Oh, I see that. Sorry.  I saw it and selected the "ExportWithFormatting" option.  After playing with it for a while, I got it to work.  Thanks.
