Open Excel template from Acess 2013

Open Excel template from Acess 2013

Hi, when i open an excel template from an Access button the user can overwrite the data and save over the file. How can i get the template to open as a new file (like it i open it from windows explorer?)

This is my code..


Private Sub Command1_Click()
'Open Enquiry Excel Template

Dim ExcelObject As Object
Set ExcelObject = GetObject("S:\Enquiry Template.xltx")
ExcelObject.Application.Visible = True
ExcelObject.Windows(1).Visible = True

End Sub 

Many thanks


RE: Open Excel template from Acess 2013

Instead of opening excel file create (get) excel application and add workbook based on the specified template workbook, code with late binding:

CODE -->

Dim ExcelApp As Object, ExcelWbk as Object
Set ExcelApp = GetObject(, "Excel.Application")
With ExcelApp
    .Visible = True
    Set ExcelWbk = .Workbooks.Add("S:\Enquiry Template.xltx")
End With
