Exporting to Excel Need to Delete top header line

Exporting to Excel Need to Delete top header line

I use the following code to export to an excel spread sheet to upload. I need the first line to be deleted on the excel sheet. It has the field names on it and the place I upload needs only the data. I have searched but am unable to find a solution.
the alternate is to prevent it from being included to start with.

CODE -->

Private Sub Command13_Click()
Dim strQryName As String, strXLFile As String, strName As String
DoCmd.OpenQuery "QryCheckAppend"
DoCmd.OpenQuery "QryChecksAppendBills"
strQryName = "QryDailyChecks"
strXLFile = "Z:\MyDocuments\RptChecksWritten.xls"
DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acExport, acSpreadsheetTypeExcel97, strQryName, strXLFile
FollowHyperlink "Z:\MyDocuments\RptChecksWritten.xls"
End Sub

You need excel (automation). Either open file and delete first row, or create file and use CopyFromRecordset method to paste data.

I'll take a look at this thanks.

RE: Exporting to Excel Need to Delete top header line


This code should do it as per combos first suggestion:


DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet TransferType:=acExport, SpreadsheetType:=acSpreadsheetTypeExcel9, TableName:="Query1", FileName:="C:\test\template.xls", Range:="exportRange"

    Dim XL As Object
        Set XL = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
        With XL
        .Visible = False
          .displayalerts = False
          .Workbooks.Open "C:\test\template.xls"
          .ActiveWorkbook.Close (True)
        End With
        Set XL = Nothing
