I am transferring a table to excel format and then it goes to a folder on the c drive.
How do I automatically change the name of the excel spreadsheet once it is converted to excel?

Dim strTable1Name1        As String
Dim strBasePath             As String

strBasePath = "C:\InductionImport\"
strTable1Name1 = strBasePath & "tblFS3ResponsesSelected.xlsx"

DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acExport, , "tblFS3ResponsesSelected", strTable1Name1
MsgBox "Export Complete, Data is Now in InductionImport Folder!"

DoCmd.OpenQuery "qryDeletetblFS3ResponsesSelectedFromMain", acViewNormal, acEdit
MsgBox "Records Have Been deleted from Main table in Database!"

DoCmd.OpenQuery "qryDeletetblFS3ResponsesSelected", acViewNormal, acEdit
MsgBox "Records Have Been deleted from tblFS3ResponsesSelected!"
MsgBox "Select Record to Export !"

you can change the name from this string

strTable1Name1 = strBasePath & "tblFS3ResponsesSelected.xlsx"

example

strTable1Name1 = strBasePath & "NewExcelName.xlsx"


or

strBasePath = "C:\InductionImport\"
strTable1Name1 = strBasePath & "tblFS3ResponsesSelected.xlsx"

after the export commands


if dir(strTable1Name1)<>"" then

name strTable1Name1 as strBasePath & "Newname.xlsx"

end if
