   Dim msg$

      For i% = 1 To n%
         With .Cells(1, i%)
            w! = .EntireColumn.ColumnWidth
            .EntireColumn.ColumnWidth = w! + 4
            .HorizontalAlignment = xlCenter
            .Interior.Color = intColor&
            .Font.Bold = True
         End With

   ' FREEZE PANES
   With xlApp.ActiveWindow
      .SplitColumn = 0
      .SplitRow = 1
      .FreezePanes = True
   End With
   msg$ = vbNullString
procDone:
   Set wks = Nothing
   Set wkbk = Nothing
   Set xlApp = Nothing
   dmwExport = msg$
   Exit Function
errHandler:
   msg$ = _
      Err.Number & ": " & Err.Description
   Resume procDone
End Function

Open in new window


What I need:

I have columns from A-X

I need to cut and move Column U and V behind Column A

i need to cut and move "Column A" to be after "Column Z"

then remove/delete Column W

Hi,
You can also use VBA/VB script to copy the whole sheet with expected columns inside, and then do the export.

Instead of opening / updating / saving the resulting workbook, why don't you update the source query so only the data you need are exported ?


Or even better, Power BI to the rescue:
Throw this VBA to garbage, Create a new workbook that will query the database.
No more VBA involved, no more troubles.

@Fabrice, Just to answer your question. The Customer is always right. Even though the qryTemp fields are arranged a way on the form. They need the export to be in this format  and look.. I agree wih you but , not my condition or ask.
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.
