MS Access 2013:  I have a database with 6 tables.  It would be very useful to me if I could get a code that, upon the click of a Control Button (Command15), would automatically export each of these tables to an MS Excel Spreadsheet (each Table is placed into a separate sheet).  Attached is my Database and the 6 tables I would like exported are:

InputT1
InputT2
SentenceOptionT1
SentenceOptionT2
NotesT1
NotesT2

The Excel Spreadsheet (Path) is:  
C:\Users\Matt\Desktop\Access Table Dump.xlsx

Can anyone help with this one?

Try: This command for Office 2013.

Excel file: D:\xl.xlsx
Use sheet names not present in workbook.

CurrentDb.Execute "SELECT * INTO [Excel 12.0;DATABASE=" _
    & "D:\xl.xlsx" & "].[" & "InputT1" & "] FROM [" & "InputT1" & "]"

Repeat for other tables.

Access reported error when appending.

Check database.

Capricorn1.  Your codes did not work.

Hnasr:  You codes worked-- however, I would like it if every time Access Exports data to that Spreadsheet, it replaces any/all data that my already exist (say, from a previous export).

Could you take a look at it and adjust your coding?  You are the MAN!

I don't know... I plugged them in, hit the Control Button, opened the Spreadsheet and; Nada!

Regardless, it ends up that there's some refining to do with the ultimate function I had in mind.  If you've got time and are willing to put up with me; let me ask you this question (related):

I'd still like to do what you were helping me out with before… only, the sheets within Excel cannot be brand new every time.  My spreadsheet (and its sheets) are already made, and any Access exports to them should only re-write data, not create entirely new spreadsheets.

Now here's the real kicker:  Upon exporting from Access to Excel, I would like the layout of Column’s and Rows to be reversed.  Example:  Records exported from Access that would normally be displayed as Column’s:  'A, B, C and D etc.' should show up as Rows in Excel: 1, 2, 3 and 4, etc.
Buddy, if you can give me direction on how to do this; I will give you accolades for the next 3 weeks straight!  Shit, I’ll Western Union you $50!

Thanks.

For the new requirement, you need to start a new question.

Usually, rounding is performed by some power of 10 - to thousands, hundreds, tens, or integer - or to one, two, or more decimals. But rounding can also be done to a power of two, say, 16 or 64, or 1/32 or 1/1024, even for extreme values.
