    Lightbulb export Excel control row count

    Hi all, heres some code I mashed together from some stuff on the web and some code of my own. This will take an access table and write it to an Excel workbook but allow you to control how many records go on each worksheet. On last check this works fine but please let me know if it fails. You should already have an excel workbook saved as a template.

    Option Compare Database
    Option Explicit
    Public Sub ExportExcel()
    Dim lngColumn As Long
    Dim xlx As Object, xlw As Object, xls As Object, xlc As Object
    Dim dbs As DAO.Database
    Dim rst As DAO.Recordset
    Dim blnEXCEL As Boolean, blnHeaderRow As Boolean
    Dim counter As Integer, pageNum As Integer
    counter = 0
    pageNum = 1
    blnEXCEL = False
    ' Replace True with False if you do not want the first row of
    ' the worksheet to be a header row (the names of the fields
    ' from the recordset)
    blnHeaderRow = True
    ' Establish an EXCEL application object
    On Error Resume Next
    Set xlx = GetObject(, "Excel.Application")
    If Err.Number <> 0 Then
    Set xlx = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
    blnEXCEL = True
    End If
    On Error GoTo 0
    ' Change True to False if you do not want the workbook to be
    ' visible when the code is running
    xlx.Visible = True
    ' Replace C:\Filename.xls with the actual path and filename
    ' of the EXCEL file into which you will write the data
    'Set xlw = xlx.Workbooks.Open("C:\Filename.xls")
    Set xlw = xlx.Workbooks.Open("C:\Filename.xls")
    ' Replace WorksheetName with the actual name of the worksheet
    ' in the EXCEL file
    ' (note that the worksheet must already be in the EXCEL file)
    'Set xls = xlw.Worksheets("WorksheetName")
    Set xls = xlw.worksheets("WorksheetName")
    ' Replace A1 with the cell reference into which the first data value
    ' is to be written
    Set xlc = xls.Range("A1") ' this is the first cell into which data go
    Set dbs = CurrentDb()
    ' Replace QueryOrTableName with the real name of the table or query
    ' whose data are to be written into the worksheet
    'Set rst = dbs.OpenRecordset("QueryOrTableName", dbOpenDynaset, dbReadOnly)
    Set rst = dbs.OpenRecordset("QueryOrTableName", dbOpenDynaset, dbReadOnly)
    If rst.EOF = False And rst.BOF = False Then
    Do While rst.EOF = False
    If pageNum <> 1 Then
    Set xls = xlw.worksheets.Add
    xls.Name = "Page" & pageNum
    Set xlc = xls.Range("A1")
    xls.Move After:=xlw.Sheets(xlw.Sheets.Count)
    End If
    If blnHeaderRow = True Then
    For lngColumn = 0 To rst.Fields.Count - 1
    xlc.Offset(0, lngColumn).Value = rst.Fields(lngColumn).Name
    Next lngColumn
    Set xlc = xlc.Offset(1, 0)
    End If
    ' write data to worksheet
    ' set the counter < num to the maximum number of
    ' rows in each worksheet
    Do While counter < num And rst.EOF = False
    For lngColumn = 0 To rst.Fields.Count - 1
    xlc.Offset(0, lngColumn).Value = rst.Fields(lngColumn).Value
    Next lngColumn
    Set xlc = xlc.Offset(1, 0)
    counter = counter + 1
    pageNum = pageNum + 1
    counter = 0
    End If
    Set rst = Nothing
    Set dbs = Nothing
    Set xlc = Nothing
    Set xls = Nothing
    xlw.Close True ' close the EXCEL file while saving.
    Set xlw = Nothing
    If blnEXCEL = True Then xlx.Quit
    Set xlx = Nothing
    End Sub
    Comments/critiques are more than welcome.
