Default Export Access Data to a Specific Cell in Excel.

I am really having a hard time learning what code I need to use to Export Customer Info and Address into a Contract I made in Excel. I just want a button in access that takes the customer info and puts it into a specific cell in Excel. For Example. Last name into 3,G. First name into 4,G. Etc. Please help if you can! Thanks, Matt

Here’s a way to go that doesn’t involve reams of code. Use a few Named Cells in an Excel workbook template, then use ADO to connect to the workbook and write some values to the Named Cells. ShellExecute is an API call that makes a copy of your template, then opens the workbook after the values are inserted.

On your workbook, be sure and name the cell above the cell you want your values written to. So if you want First_Name data written to cell C:3, name cell C:2 “First_Name”.

I just hard-coded the values in the SQL statements for simplicity. You’d need to build your own SQL insert commands from values pulled from ADO recordset fields or GUI controls.

Option Compare Database

Public Declare Function ShellExecute Lib "Shell32.dll" Alias "ShellExecuteA" _
  (ByVal hwnd As Long, _
   ByVal lpOperation As String, _
   ByVal lpFile As String, _
   ByVal lpParameters As String, _
   ByVal lpDirectory As String, _
   ByVal nShowCmd As Long) As Long

Private Const SW_NORMAL = 1

Private strContactDataTemplate As String  'Path to ContactData Template

Public Sub InsertData()

    Dim RetVal As Long

    strContactDataTemplate = Application.CurrentProject.Path & "\Template\ContactData.xlt"

    FileCopy strContactDataTemplate, Application.CurrentProject.Path & "\Result\ContactData.xls"

    'Open ADO connection to Excel workbook
    Set oConn = New ADODB.Connection
    oConn.Open "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;" & _
               "Data Source=" & Application.CurrentProject.Path & "\Result\ContactData.xls;" & _
               "Extended Properties=""Excel 8.0;HDR=NO;"""

    'Insert values into Named Cells in Excel workbook.
    oConn.Execute "Insert into First_Name Values ('Bob')"
    oConn.Execute "Insert into Last_Name Values ('Bedell')"
    oConn.Execute "Insert into Title Values ('Contract Manager')"

    'Close the connection

    'Open the workbook

    On Error Resume Next
    RetVal = ShellExecute(0, "open", Application.CurrentProject.Path & "\Result\ContactData.xls", "", "C:\", SW_SHOWNORMAL)

End Sub
