Hi all.

I have the following code that exports my Access data to Excel. But I want to make some changes so instead of the data appearing in column A, B, C, D of row 1, I want it to appear as

Column A, row 1--"Contract Number" data
Column A, row 2--"Status" data
Column A, row 3--"Facility ID" data
Column A, row 4--"Facility Name" data

Any ideas?

Dim xlWb1 'Script for creating excel files
Dim xlWs1

    Set xlApp1 = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
    Set xlWb1 = xlApp1.Workbooks.Add
    Set xlWs1 = xlWb1.Worksheets("Sheet1")
    xlApp1.Visible = True
    xlApp1.UserControl = True
    xlApp1.DisplayAlerts = True
    Dim objCon1  As New ADODB.Connection
    Dim objRS1 As ADODB.Recordset
    Set objRS1 = New ADODB.Recordset
    Dim rsExcel1 As DAO.Recordset
    Set rsExcel1 = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("Select tblContract_Header.Contract_ID,tblContract_Header.Status,  tblContract_Detail.Facility_ID,tblContract_Detail.Name  FROM tblContract_Header INNER JOIN tblContract_Detail ON tblContract_Header.Contract_Number = tblContract_Detail.Contract_Number where tblContract_Header.[Contract_Number] = " & Me.txtContract__Number)
    xlWs1.Cells.CopyFromRecordset rsExcel1
    xlWs1.Rows("1").Insert
    xlWs1.Cells(1).Value = "Contract Number"
    xlWs1.Cells(2).Value = "Status"
    xlWs1.Cells(3).Value = "Facility ID"
    xlWs1.Cells(4).Value = "Facility Name"
    

    xlApp1.Rows(1).Font.Bold = True
    xlWs1.UsedRange.Borders.LineStyle = 1
    xlApp1.Columns.AutoFit

    Set xlWs1 = Nothing
    Set xlWb1 = Nothing
    Set xlApp1 = Nothing 'End Excel

change this part

   xlWs1.Cells(1).Value = "Contract Number"
    xlWs1.Cells(2).Value = "Status"
    xlWs1.Cells(3).Value = "Facility ID"
    xlWs1.Cells(4).Value = "Facility Name"

with

   xlWs1.Cells(1,1).Value = "Contract Number"
    xlWs1.Cells(2,1).Value = "Status"
    xlWs1.Cells(3,1).Value = "Facility ID"
    xlWs1.Cells(4,1).Value = "Facility Name"

Thanks capricorn.

But that just makes the words "Contract Number", "Status", "Facility ID" and "Facility Name" appear in Column A, but the data is still placed on row 1 Column A, Column B, Column C and Column D.

I have attached a sample excel file of how it will need to appear.

   ' xlWs1.Cells.CopyFromRecordset rsExcel1
   
    xlWs1.Cells(1,1).Value = "Contract Number"
