Mark cell in Excel bold using VBA Access

I have the following code and need to mark a specific cell in an excel sheet bold:

With objExcel
  .Visible = True
  .Workbooks.Add (xTemplate)
  .worksheets(1).Activate

  .worksheets(1).Cells(2, 1).Value = "TEST"
  .worksheets(1).Cells(2, 1).HorizontalAlignment = xlCenter
End With

unfortunately this generates an error and I have tried many different versions with no success. Thank you for any help!

First designate a range, then select it, then apply various types of formatting, such as this:
         sht.Range("A1:Q1").Select
         With appExcel.Selection
             .HorizontalAlignment = xlCenter
             .VerticalAlignment = xlCenter
             .MergeCells = True
         End With
         
         With appExcel.Selection.Font
             .Name = "Calibri"
             .Size = 16
         End With
         
         appExcel.Selection.Font.Bold = True

Open in new window


You can generally find the syntax you need by recording a macro.

You might find my ebook, Working with Excel, useful.  It is available from Office Watch.  It covers exchanging data between Access and Excel in a variety of ways.

With objExcel

  .worksheets(1).Activate

  .worksheets(1).Cells(2, 1).Value = "TEST"
  .worksheets(1).Range("A2:A2").SELECT
  With objExcel.Selection

Did you declare objExcel as Excel.Application?  That is needed to use named constants.  There should be a reference to the Excel object model in the References dialog.
