How to link access 2000 to excel 2000 using dde How to link access 2000 to excel 2000 using dde Guest (visitor) (OP) 2 Jan 01 02:37 I am trying to link access 2000 to excel 2000. The only thing I can find to use is a dde command. I need to link certain cells in an access table to different cells in an excel sheets.

I have tried using it with no success in Access 2000 to Excel 2000. There are other ways to connect Access to Excel. One is use "Export table to Excel as static data", another is "Export table to Excel as Dynamic data". The optimal connection according to "VBA for Office 2000" is to use Access as an application server and use GetObject or CreateObject to open an existing Excel file or cretae a new one. The only trouble I have had with this process is getting an Excel macro to run after opening an Excel file using GetObject.
