I have a code to highlight a filed. below is the code.
I would like to enable filter, freeze the first row and autofit  when exporting.
How to accomplish this?

Your help appreciated.


Private Sub Command48_Click()
Dim outputFileName As String
If Me.Dirty Then Me.Dirty = False
outputFileName = "Export_" & Format(Date, "dd-MM-yyyy") & ".xls"
DoCmd.OutputTo acOutputQuery, "Payment-Details", acFormatXLS, outputFileName
Call excel_format(outputFileName, "Payment-Details")
End Sub


Public Function excel_format(xls As String, sheet As String) As Long
Dim xlf As Object, wbk As Object, wks As Object
Dim i As Long, Lr As Long
Set xlf = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
Set wbk = xlf.Workbooks.Open(fGetSpecialFolderLocation(CSIDL_PERSONAL) & "\" & xls)
Set wks = wbk.Sheets(sheet)
Lr = wks.UsedRange.Rows.Count
For i = 2 To Lr
    If wks.cells(i, 35).value = "Low" Then wks.cells(i, 11).Interior.Color = vbGreen
    If wks.cells(i, 35).value = "Medium" Then wks.cells(i, 11).Interior.Color = vbYellow
    If wks.cells(i, 35).value = "High" Then wks.cells(i, 11).Interior.Color = vbRed
Next i
wbk.Save
xlf.Application.Visible = True ' If you like to show workbook
