   Dim appExcel As New Excel.Application

   Dim rst As DAO.Recordset
   Dim fld As DAO.Field
   Dim intFieldCount As Integer
   Dim intCount As Integer
   Dim strFieldName As String

   Set rst = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("LOCALtblTEMPIHMGNotes")
   intFieldCount = rst.Fields.Count
   Debug.Print "No. of Fields: " & intFieldCount
   Set wkb = appExcel.Workbooks.Add
   Set sht = wkb.Sheets(1)
   intRow = 1
   strDesktopPath = CreateObject("WScript.Shell").SpecialFolders("Desktop")
   
   For intCount = 0 To intFieldCount - 1
      strFieldName = rst.Fields(intCount).Name
      Debug.Print "Field name: " & strFieldName
      strRange = "A" & CStr(intRow)
      Set rng = sht.Range(strRange)
      rng.Value = strFieldName
      varFieldValue = rst.Fields(intCount)
      Debug.Print "Field value: " & varFieldValue

      Set rng = sht.Range(strRange)

      intRow = intRow + 1
   Next intCount

   strXLFile = strDesktopPath & "\IHMG Notes - " & Forms!frmIHMGnotes.Text328 & ".xlsx"

Do you mean export to a NEW workbook created from an Excel template? If so, change this line:

Set wkb = appExcel.Workbooks.Add("Path to your template")
