Export Format Different From XLS Button

Hi,

I have created a macro with the below Code.  This simply exports a single table with two columns.  However, i need the export to be exactly the same format as the table.  When I use the XLS export on the table itself, it exports in the correct format, but with the macro it does not.

The data looks like the below.

0001       1

0002       2

If i use the XLS Button as mentioned before i get the above result, the macro however, does the below.

1      1

2      2

Is there a way to correct this?  Below is my macro code.

sub Export

set XLApp = CreateObject("Excel.Application")

XLApp.Visible = True 'you can make it false, if you want to make it in the background

set XLDoc = XLApp.Workbooks.Add

XLDoc.Sheets(1).name = "Export"

set XLSheet = XLDoc.Worksheets(1)

set MyTable = ActiveDocument.GetSheetObject("TB01") 'Change TB01 to the object you want to export to Excel (Object Properties > General tab > far right)

set XLSheet = XLDoc.Worksheets(1) 'Select sheet where data should be pasted

Mytable.CopyTableToClipboard true 'Copy data to Clipboard

XLSheet.Paste XLSheet.Range("A1") 'Paste data starting at A1

XLApp.DisplayAlerts = False

XLDoc.SaveAs "C:\Users\ruangreeff\Desktop\QVData\QVLive\ExternalData\Heatmap\Sequence.xls"

XLApp.DisplayAlerts = True

End Sub

Try this:

...

set XLSheet = XLDoc.Worksheets(1) 'Select sheet where data should be pasted

Mytable.CopyTableToClipboard true 'Copy data to Clipboard

XLSheet.Columns("A:A").EntireColumn.NumberFormat = "@" 'as text

'XLSheet.Columns("A:A").EntireColumn.NumberFormat = "0000" 'as number

XLSheet.Paste XLSheet.Range("A1") 'Paste data starting at A1

Re: Export Format Different From XLS Button

Hi Marcus,

This did not seem to work.  I tried keeping it as text.  But as mentioned earlier, the format of the actual field was set in the script to text.

Not sure if the '@' might have to be replaced with something else.

Try it with pastespecial instead of paste:

Range.PasteSpecial-Methode (Excel)

Thanks for the help.  You wont believe,

i fixed the issue with the below code.

Set obj = ActiveDocument.GetSheetObject("TB01")

obj.ExportBiff "..........\Sequence.xls"

Set obj = nothing

End Sub
