Control Button to Export Access Tables to Excel Database with Multiple Sheets (overwrite data in Excel; do not create new sheets)

NEW!  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 Form’s Control Button, would automatically export each of these tables to an MS Excel Spreadsheet (each Table is placed into a separate, same name sheet).  

It is very important, though, that the exported data always goes to the same Spreadsheet with the same Sheets (they have already been created)—and simply over-writes any data that may already exist in the Excel Sheets.  This is because there is another Excel Spreadsheet that has formula’s attached to each sheet within this one).

Attached is my Excel Spreadsheet along with my Access Database.  The 6 tables I would like export 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?

Use TransferSpreadsheet to export the data.  Reference the same file name for all 6 exports and use a query name that matches a sheet name to target a specific sheet.  So use a query named InputT1 to export the data you want to export to the sheet named InputT1.  Query InputT2 will export to sheet InputT2, etc.
