    I am trying to run an excel macro from access. First I open the
    spreasheet, then I run the macro.

    This is my code:

    Dim xlx As Object, xlw As Object, xls As Object, xlc As Object
    Set xlx = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
    xlx.Visible = True
    Set xlw = xlx.Workbooks.Open("H:\Data\Enztec Files\1300 Marketing\04 -
    Pricing\Price Lists and Costings\C Costing Database\Route Card
    Template.xls")
    Set xls = xlw.Worksheets("Route Card")

    Dim strFile As String, strMacro As String
    strFile = "Route Card Template"
    strMacro = "RouteCard"
    Set xlx = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
    xlx.Visible = True
    xlx.Run strFile & "!" & strMacro

    But it won't run the macro? How Come?
    Thanks

    What does "But it won't run the macro? " mean? There seems to be
    some detail missing. :)

    Try moving your code into a new Excel workbook and debug it there.

    Once the code problems are fixed, move it back to Access.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
