I would like to create a menu command that will export the records output from a query into an Excel spreadsheet. Currently this is accomplished by clicking on the "External Data" tab and selecting the "Excel" option (see attached). However, for the convenience of the user (who is not Access savvy),  I would like to create a command button in the menu that will accomplish the same thing. How would I do it?

you can also use

DoCmd.OutputTo acOutputTable, "tableName", acFormatXLSX, "c:\folder\Myexcel.xlsx", True


<What is the "10" parameter for? >
that is the excel format for A2007 and above

if you are using Excel2003, use

docmd.transferspreadsheet acexport,8, "tablename","c:\folder\myexcel.xls", true
