I have a form in an ACCESS 2003 database from which the user can select days to create am Excel 2010 workbook.  They can select, say, all the Month of May, run the process to export the data to Excel.  However, if they select another month, say March, then run it again, the process fails.  It throws Error Number 91, Object variable or With blcok variable not set.  This is a show stopper and I have no idea what to look for.

How are you creating the Excel Workbook?

It would help to see the VBA you are using.

If you are using Automation you might have an issue with Excel not getting terminated properly.

Also check what object you shut at the end that may have been opened prior to the first session. Probably identified by .Quit

"Object variable or With blcok variable not set" means you are trying to access an object that is "no longer there".  You may want to close your Excel app completely when finished, then run he whole thing again when you want to do another.
Put all you Excel code (dims, open, close, etc.) in a function and pass the necessary info to the function each time.
