You can do it manually with the Access export dialog. If you want to automate will have to learn code (VBA or macro).

I don't use macros, only VBA. Google search: Access VBA export

Learn, write, debug, post specific question when you run into problem.

Actually this method is really easy, all you need to do is the following... And I understand the policy, but since I'm a noob, I'm ignoring it :P

Open up the create macro window, and then select "Output To" from the Action column.
Then, you will specify the following in the Action Arguments section below:

Object Type: Table or Query (This depends on which ever you need)
Object Name: The name of the Table or Query (Pretty obvious)
Output Format: Excel Workbook 97-2003 or Excel Workbook .xlsx (which ever you need)
Output File: This will be the file path, I recommend leaving it blank so it prompts you since there are certain rules about equal signs and double quotes, the benefit is that you can put formulas in the file name. But again, just leave it blank.
Auto Start: Yes or No (this is up to you)

All of the other fields, just leave them as the default.

That should answer your question!

As I said, I don't use macros in Access. So sounds like TheTVDuchess has suggested creating a macro in Access. Then think need to call that macro from button. In the button Properties dialog, on Event tab, onclick event, reference the macro by its name after equal sign (= macroname).

You can also just use the wizard to program a button on the form.

He asked a particular question regarding command buttons. If you can't answer him, it is better to not answer him rather rag on him for not knowing code.

Do not necro post, particularly just to add an undeserved criticism. June7's post is helpful and appropriate.
