Excel Native Format with VBA
Posted on 2013-01-22
I have to create a file upload from Access VBA which will export in XLS 2003. When I do CreateObject("Excel.Application"), etc, etc i get an OK looking file and the properties of the file say version 97-2003, but if you open the file in Excel, you get the 'Unrecognized format...' even though it will open.
This may break the upload, is there anyway round this or is it build into the system so you have to buy a license for making Excel files.
Maybe OLE-Automation,after file creation?
