Access 2010 Maximum Crosstab Columns

Posted on 2013-01-29

Last Modified: 2016-02-11
I have been asked to create an Excel spreadsheet from an Access database with about 365 columns of data. The Crosstab query that I used for this purpose was previously for 60 months of data plus some static information. This worked via the command:
DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acExport, , "qrySpec_FundFutCashFlow_Crosstab", strExportFile

I need a technique using VBA code to create an Excel spreadsheet with about 365 months of data (in columns) from an Access database.

that may not be feasible, queries and tables are limited to 255 columns.

perhaps using VBA codes can do that.

You could build text file, comma separated, with a '.csv' extension, which would open nicely in Excel.
What is your table structure (just fields you want in spreadsheet)?
Are there entries for each month?

The data only includes a monthly value if there is one. Some assets have a single cash flow record at maturity so I did NOT write 359 "zero" records when only 1 record was needed (with a date 30 years from today).

My issue is that I can't use the crosstab query, therefore I will need to code this in VBA and write out the delimited text file.

Thanks

Does anyone know if Access 2013 will allow more than 255 columns in a query (or table)?
