TransferSpreadsheet problem

I am using the command DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet to transfer data from
a named range in Excel to an Access table. This works ok for importing
from one Excel file but not from another which gives the following
error message:
"The Microsoft Jet Engine could not find the object "NamedRange". Make
sure the object exists and that you spell its name and path

I have searched the news groups to understand what may cause the
problem. The explanations are:
1. The range name is too long - I have tested and this is not the case
2. The file is corrupted - I doubt this is the case.

For both Excel files TransferSpreadsheet works when the file is
already open. The Excel file that doesn't work has a number of
different characteristics from the working file:
1. It has macros
2. It has protection
3. The named range is grouped
4. There are a number of other worksheets
I've tried eliminating these to solve the problem and am struggling to
understand which causes
the issue.

I see two alternative approaches:
1. Open the file using CreateObject("Excel.Application"). Then
transfer the data using TransferSpreadsheet. Even when correctly
deleting the object this causes an instance of Excel to remain after
each file is opened.
2. Open the file using CreateObject("Excel.Application") and transfer
the data from the named range into a recordset.

I'm in the middle of trying to get option 2 to work (with a few
problems); however, for simplicity I would prefer to use

Can anyone shed any light onto what's causing the problem?

Cell border formatting problem
Hi - In a simple, unprotected worksheet (Excel 2002), I cannot format the borders of some of the cells. If I click on the border button on the formatting toolbar, nothing happens. If I go to Format>Cells on the Menu Bar, nothing happens. I can, however, type in these cells. For some of these cells, I can copy and paste a formatted cell from another part of the worksheet successfully. For some cells, I cannot copy and paste a formatted cell. Sometimes if I select a range of cells around the offending cell, I can format all of them. But I still cannot format the offender by itself. ...

Sub-Report Problem
I have a sub-report that prints "exactly" as it should, but then repeats many, many times. The stand alone sub-report prints two pages. The sub-report in the main report prints 4226 pages (duplicates of two pages, 2113 times). The reports are NOT linked. The sub-report is located in the Detail section of the main report. I select to print this sub-report from a form, and then make the appropriate controls visible/not visible depending on the type of report I want. It works great, just too many pages on the sub-report. All other main reports (as selected from the Form, work fi...

I synchronise my Palm with MS Oulook 2002 (Windows XP) several times a day. For my calendar, I have set the sync on 'synchronise files'.

Pivot Table Problem #3
I have just found out that Pivot Tables keep a history of old data and includes them with the new ones in the list for that particular data field, and because I only want the new data - I have to manually go in the drop down list for that data field and uncheck the old data so that it won't appear in the table. Does anyone know how to stop the old data from appearing in the drop down list so that it only shows the new data as options? This would help me a lot. Thanks in advance =) There's information here on clearing old items in a pivot table:

Gmail problem in Outlook 2010
I can sometimes send to my POP gmail account, but haven't been able to receive mail from that account at all. Gmail is the only acct.

Outlook Address Book problem using Windows 7
