I have this code and I want the Excel file to just open and not output it to somewhere.  How do I change my code to do that?


Private Sub cmdExport_ALLORGS_Click()
'On Error GoTo Err_cmdExport_ALLORGS_Click

 Dim username As String, stDocName As String, stFilename As String
 
    If MsgBox("Click YES to export all Allotments to Excel, NO to export current Allotment.", vbYesNo, "Export Options") = vbYes Then
        'stDocName = "QryRecapTest_ExcelOutputALL"
    Else
        stDocName = "Copy of Allot_Q"
    End If
    

    
        
        DoCmd.OutputTo acOutputQuery, "Copy Of Allot_Q", "Excel97-Excel2003Workbook(*.xls)", "", True, "", , acExportQualityScreen
   
'Exit_cmdExport_ALLORGS_Click:
 '   Exit Sub

'Err_cmdExport_ALLORGS_Click:
 '   MsgBox Err.Description
  '  Resume Exit_cmdExport_ALLORGS_Click
    

End Sub

I'm not going to write the code but you would need to use automation to Open Excel, create a new workbook, make it visible, and populate the rows.

Then the user would need to save it if he wanted to.

But the question is why?  What is wrong with simply using one line of code - TransferSpreadsheet to create the file?
