With the procedure below you can import data from an Access table to a worksheet.
Sub ADOImportFromAccessTable(DBFullName As String, _ TableName As String, TargetRange As Range) ' Example: ADOImportFromAccessTable "C:\FolderName\DataBaseName.mdb", _ "TableName", Range("C1") Dim cn As ADODB.Connection, rs As ADODB.Recordset, intColIndex As Integer Set TargetRange = TargetRange.Cells(1, 1) ' open the database Set cn = New ADODB.Connection cn.Open "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0; Data Source=" & _ DBFullName & ";" Set rs = New ADODB.Recordset With rs ' open the recordset .Open TableName, cn, adOpenStatic, adLockOptimistic, adCmdTable ' all records '.Open "SELECT * FROM " & TableName & _ " WHERE [FieldName] = 'MyCriteria'", cn, , , adCmdText ' filter records RS2WS rs, TargetRange ' write data from the recordset to the worksheet ' ' optional approach for Excel 2000 or later (RS2WS is not necessary) ' For intColIndex = 0 To rs.Fields.Count - 1 ' the field names ' TargetRange.Offset(0, intColIndex).Value = rs.Fields(intColIndex).Name ' Next ' TargetRange.Offset(1, 0).CopyFromRecordset rs ' the recordset data End With rs.Close Set rs = Nothing cn.Close Set cn = Nothing End Sub
The macro examples assumes that your VBA project has added a reference to the ADO object library.
You can do this from within the VBE by selecting the menu Tools, References and selecting Microsoft
ActiveX Data Objects x.x Object Library.
Use ADO if you can choose between ADO and DAO for data import or export.
