Dear Experts

I'm not sure if this is even possible - I want to export 2 Access Queries to the same excel spread sheet so query 1 goes to sheet 1 & query 2 goes to sheet 2.  I am using Access & Excel 2010

For various reasons this has to be an export rather than simply linking the excel spread sheet back to Access.

Can anybody help with some code to achieve this

Many thanks

Hi, thanks for the rapid response ..

gowflow - I'm looking at using VBA, triggered from a command button in a form

Rgonzo1971 - I have tried your code, alas I get an error - 2498 "An expression you entered is the wrong data type for one of the arguments - the code I've entered is below - Any Ideas?

You can't use a Range value when exporting:

Leave this argument blank to import the entire spreadsheet. When you export to a spreadsheet, you must leave this argument blank. If you enter a range, the export will fail.
From here: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/ff844793.aspx

Only way I know to do this is through automation.
