Exporting a table to excel and including the titles

Exporting a table to excel and including the titles

Exporting a table to excel and including the titles

I have a table that I export to Excel but it doesn't export the names of the fields in
my table at the top of the spreadsheet.

This is most likely one option that I left out of my code but have been searching for
how to do this and have not been able to find the answer...

I have included my code below and would appreciate anyone setting me straight on what I left out...


CODE -->

Set objXL = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
    Set db = CurrentDb
    Set rs1 = db.OpenRecordset("NW_Excel_tbl", dbOpenSnapshot)
    If rs1.RecordCount > 0 Then      ' if this is an empty table then don't bother...
         .Visible = True
          Set objWkb = .Workbooks.Open(Out_File)
         On Error Resume Next
         Set objSht = objWkb.Worksheets("NW")         'RSP
         lngLastRow = objSht.Cells.Find(What:="*", _
           After:=objSht.Range("A1"), _
           LookAt:=2, _
           LookIn:=-4123, _
           SearchOrder:=1, _
           SearchDirection:=2, _
        End With
        lngLastRow = lngLastRow + 1
        With objSht
         .Range("A" & lngLastRow).CopyFromRecordset rs1
          With .Rows(lngLastRow & ":" & lngLastRow + rs1.RecordCount)
           .Font.Bold = True
           .Font.Color = vbBlack
           .Font.Name = "Calibri"
           .Font.Size = 11
          End With
        End With
    End If
    Set rs1 = Nothing
    Set objSht = Nothing 

RE: Exporting a table to excel and including the titles


Your code is written such that data already in the sheet will be retained and new data added at lngLastRow.

So you need code that only ONE TIME, do this...


   Dim fld As Object, iCol as Integer
   For Each fld in rs.Fields
       objSht.Cells(1, iCol + 1).Value = fld.Name
       iCol = iCol + 1


glassesJust traded in my OLD subtlety...
for a NUance!tongue
