I need an access vba code to copy a simple table from access into a shared excel workbook. I need access to overwrite any data in the target destination also. Lets say my table is called MyTable, and i need to copy it into MyWorkbook.xlsx on Sheet1. Please note, i had such a code, but access did not resave excel in shared mode.

You can just Delete the Workbook, and then use TransferSpreadsheet to move it:

If Dir("Your path to the MyWorkbook.xlsx file", "") <> "" Then
  Kill "Your path to the MyWorkbook.xlsx file"
End If

DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acExport, acSpreadsheetTypeExcel9, "Table or Query Name", "Your Destination Path"

However, if someone has that file open, you can't do it. You'd have to wait until it's free.

If you need to paste the table's data to a specific location in a workbook, you can use the CopyFromRecordset method, like this:

On Error Resume Next
               Set appExcel = GetObject(, "Excel.Application")
               Set wkbTest = appExcel.Workbooks(strXLFileName)
               
               If Err.Number = 0 Then
                  'Workbook is already open
                  wkbTest.Close savechanges:=xlDoNotSaveChanges
                  Set wkbTest = Nothing
               End If
               
               Set wkb = appExcel.Workbooks.Open(FileName:=strXLFile, _
                  ReadOnly:=False)
               appExcel.Visible = True
               wkb.Activate
               
On Error GoTo ErrorHandler
               Set sht = wkb.Sheets("Access Data")
               
               'Clear old data, if any
               lngLastRow = sht.UsedRange.Rows.Count + 2
               strRange = "A3:Q" & CStr(lngLastRow)
               Set rng = sht.Range(strRange)
               rng.ClearContents
                              
               'Create a DAO recordset
               Set rng = sht.Range("A3")
               Set rstDAO = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset(strRecordSource)
               rng.CopyFromRecordset rstDAO
                                       
               strTitle = "Export successful"
               strPrompt = strXLFile & " filled with current Access data"
               MsgBox prompt:=strPrompt, _
                  Buttons:=vbInformation + vbOKOnly, _
                  Title:=strTitle

Both mine and Helen's answer should be accepted:

Each provides details of how to delete the file, and how to transfer the file
