  1. Thank you for the vba code. But it worked for once. I’m getting the following error “Error no. 3027. Cannot update. Database or object is read only

  2. I want to append to the spreadsheet monthly. Data has to go into specific format. I thought there is command that has row/column arguments. Once used a workspace to loop through records stepping the cell address. was I dreaming? Thanks
