Writing data from Access to Excel produces a blank document

I have a reporting package which is written in MS Access.

Some of the reports need to be produced in Excel, so the Access database grabs the data it needs from SQL and then write the Excel document (They are all a bit quirky and have to be formatted a certain way so a DoCmd.OutPutTo won't work).

Some users are having issues where the document is created, the headers are there, the column headers are there, the page formatting has been done, but theres no data!  Some of them can close the Access database, reopen it and then it will work, but others haven't been able to create these reports for weeks.

I've made sure they are all on the same versions of Windows and Office so am now stuck.

Any help would be appreciated!
