When I tried to export a table/query from Access 2007 to Excel 2007, I was getting this annoying error:
You selected more records than can be copied onto the Clipboard at one time. Divide the records into two or more groups, and then copy and paste one group at a time. The maximum number of records you can paste at one time is approximately 65,000.
I was unable to understand the reason, because I thought Excel 2007 did not limit the number of rows to 65,536. It turns out, however, that this error is caused by limitations of the clipboard and no because of Excel.
Un-check the “export data with formatting and layout” option, and see Access export data to Excel successfully.
Another option to consider, use Transferspreadsheet (VBA) function.
Thanks to Brett, it looks like that if you right-click on a table or a query, select Export, and in the Export dialog box, keep “export data with formatting and layout” option un-checked, then Access will export successfully.
