MS Access 2013:  Control Button to Export 3 Tables to Excel

I’m sorry for asking so many questions, but this is very close to being the last one.

I have an Access 2013 Database with 3 Tables.  I also have a form with a Control Button (‘Finalize’).  What I would like to happen is that when this Control Button is clicked, all 3 Tables get exported to select, pre-saved (but blank) Excel spreadsheets:

Table1 is exported to Excel Dump1  (C:\Users\Matt\Desktop\WUCAINS Folder\Excel Dump1.xlsx)
Table2 is exported to Excel Dump2  (C:\Users\Matt\Desktop\WUCAINS Folder\Excel Dump2.xlsx)      
Table3 is exported to Excel Dump3  (C:\Users\Matt\Desktop\WUCAINS Folder\Excel Dump3.xlsx)

The Excel Spreadsheets don’t have to open, but what I want is—for every time data is exported to these spreadsheets, the new data simply over-writes any existing data that may exist there and the spreadsheet is saved.

Finally, I have another 3 Excel Spreadsheets (pre-saved) that have formulas tied to the first 3:

Excel Dump1  is tied to Excel Update1  (C:\Users\Matt\Desktop\WUCAINS Folder\Excel Update1.xlsx)
Excel Dump2 is tied to Excel Update 2        (C:\Users\Matt\Desktop\WUCAINS Folder\Excel Update2.xlsx)      
Excel Dump 3 is tied to Excel Update3  (C:\Users\Matt\Desktop\WUCAINS Folder\Excel Update3.xlsx)

Again, these Excel Spreadsheets don’t have to open, but what I want is—for every time Access exports data to the first series of Spreadsheets, the 2nd Series of Spreadsheets also gets automatically updated with the new information exported into the 1st Series of Spreadsheets (the formulas within the 2nd Series of Spreadsheets are simply subject to the new data just exported into the1st Series of Spreadsheets), and these Spreadsheets are saved.

Can anyone give me any codes to make this happen?  Thank you so much for your help.
