    VBA to export query into Excel results in Excel error (when opening the XLSX)


    Good morning -- I need some assistance w/ reviewing the VBA below.

        If Me.Listbox_N1S_Queries = "All Data (Billet | Organization | Staff Member)" Then
            'Declare variables
            Dim ReportPath As String
            Dim ReportPathMsgBox As String
            Dim ReportFileName As String
            Dim OutputPathFileName As String
            'Report path
            ReportPath = "\\report path on shared drive\All Data"                     'Modified the report path for proprietary reasons
            ReportPathMsgBox = "Reportpath \All Data (Query)"
            'Append to file name
            ReportFileName = " -- " & Format(Date, "yyyy-mm-dd") & ".xlsx"
            OutputPathFileName = ReportPath & ReportFileName
            'Execute query
            DoCmd.OutputTo acOutputQuery, "Q802_AllFields", acFormatXLSX, OutputPathFileName, False
            'Throw message box upon successful extraction of the XLS
            MsgBox "Data has been successfully exported to the following location:" & vbCrLf & ReportPathMsgBox, vbInformation, "Information"
        End If
    Although the Excel file outputs successfully, I run into an Excel error when actually attempting to open the file (see attached JPG).

    To determine if a field (or any data) may contribute to the error, I included only a ~10 fields (data type = text, number, date, etc.). Also, when clicking on the "Error log" (see information below ***s), there was
    no particular reference to, e.g., a field name.

    Note: When exporting the same query using an export routine, the file opens just fine. However, I really prefer using the VBA given that I have flexibility to automatically add the current date to the filename.

    My question: Is there anything wrong with the command line "DoCmd.OutputTo acOutputQuery ..."? Is there a different format I should use for Excel 2010 or beyond?

    Thank you,

    I found a solution -- changed line

    DoCmd.OutputTo acOutputQuery, "Q802_AllFields", acFormatXLSX, OutputPathFileName, False

    DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acExport, acSpreadsheetTypeExcel12Xml, "Q802_AllFields", OutputPathFileName, False

    It now allows me to open the Excel w/o any errors.

Please reply to this thread with any new information or opinions.
