Question : VB button on Output to Excel


I have code which outputs to excel from Access and pre-formats the spreadsheet. i am looking to incorporate an some VB buttons into the outputted spreadsheet.

So i would like the the buttons to give the user options to sort highest number to lowest number by on certain columns

So for example, column b.

Is there code i can incorporate into the Access Output button that would create these buttons on the outputted spreadsheet.


Here is my current code:

Private Sub Command5_Click()
Dim strFile As String
strFile = "F:\MissingDataOutput.xls"
'DoCmd.OutputTo acOutputForm, Me.Missing Data Plug, acFormatXLS, strFile, False
DoCmd.OutputTo acOutputTable, "Missing Data Plug", acFormatXLS, strFile, False

Dim oXL As Object
Dim oWB As Object
Dim oWS As Object
Dim FormulaRow As Long
Set oXL = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
Set oWB = oXL.Workbooks.Open(strFile)
Set oWS = oWB.Sheets(1)
With oWS
    FormulaRow = .Cells(.Rows.Count, "b").End(-4162).Row + 2 'xlUp
    .Cells.Font.Size = 10
    .Rows(1).Font.Bold = True
    .range("b:h").NumberFormat = "0.00%;[Red]0.00%"
    .range("b:h").NumberFormat = "#,##0.00;[Red]#,##0.00"
    .range("c:e").Style = "Percent"
    .range("b:b").NumberFormat = "£#,##0.00;[Red]£#,##0.00"
    .range("f:h").NumberFormat = "£#,##0.00;[Red]£#,##0.00"
    End With
oXL.Visible = True

Set oWS = Nothing
Set oWB = Nothing
Set oXL = Nothing
End Sub

Answer : VB button on Output to Excel

As far as the code for the buttons is concerned, often you can get a start by recording a macro to do the task in question, then editing it as needed.
