Similar questions here at the exchange offered (aging) solutions which I couldn't make work, so I thought I'd get the latest.  I simply need to print a spreadsheet; I don't need to link it to the database, and it has never been linked to the db.

You can use a bit of VBA code for that:
Dim xlTmp As Object
Set xlTmp = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
xlTmp.Visible = False
Dim xlWbk As Object
Set xlWbk = xlTmp.Workbooks.Open("C:\Excel1.xls")
xlWbk.PrintOut
xlWbk.Close SaveChanges:=False
xlTmp.Quit
Set xlTmp = Nothing

Open in new window

chaau, your method worked flawlessly; just had to add add "ActiveSheet" to the command.
Rey Obrero, your method appears similar, but I didn't have time to check it.  Either way, it has a couple of items that will help me understand more about this subject.  Thank you both for the timely response.
