Export Access table to Excel without column headers

Hey Folks!

How would I achieve the above?

Everything I have tried so far has yielded no result.

All I want to do is to have access determine a filename to save as (from a form) and export a table to that filename WITHOUT the column headers.

Any help would be great smile

Would a CSV file suit, it can be opened by Excel?

I would prefer not to, as it ends up with a customer and they specified Excel.

I'm trying to remove any manual intervention from the process, to eliminate any chance of human error.

Cheers :)

It seems to me that you will need to use a little automation. You can OutputTo CSV and openn and save as XLS, or you can export xls and use automation to delete the first row. I do not think you can use TransferSpreadsheet without a header row.

Why can't you use


DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acExport, acSpreadsheetTypeExcel9, "query Name", "Filename",False
