You can upload or export Access data to Excel without even opening the Excel Workbook.
How to Export Access data to Excel
Step 1: Open the Access DB and got to VBA code builder (Alt + F11) and Open a New Module.
Step 2: Copy and Paste the below code in it.
On Error GoTo ErrorHandler
Dim dbTable As String
Dim xlWorksheetPath As String
xlWorksheetPath = “C:\” ‘Mention the xlWorkbook path
xlWorksheetPath = xlWorksheetPath & “xlWorkbookName.xlsx” ‘Replace the ‘xlWorkbookName.xlsx’ with your workbook name
dbTable = “tblMaster” ‘Replace ‘tblMaster’ with the table in the Access DB from which you want to export the data
DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet transfertype:=acExport, spreadsheettype:=acSpreadsheetTypeExcel12, tablename:=dbTable, FileName:=xlWorksheetPath, hasfieldnames:=True
MsgBox “Error No: ” & Err.Number & “;Description: ” & Err.Description
Step 3: Click the Run button or F5 or the Command button to which you have associated this code!
In case you are assigning the code to a Command button make sure the code is within the Private/Public Sub_Event(); Something like the below
Private Sub exportToXl_Click()
