TransferText .CSV format
Hi ,
I have a simple query and I want to export it in excel, Coma Separated Value., .CSV

I tried to run DoCmd.TransferText but all of my attempts were futile.

Is there any idea about it ?



I found it, I must export it as TXT and file suffix insert .csv instead of .txt and it works

Now, does anyone know if I can execute this "Saved Exports" through a macro or docmd ?

Another edit, i insert a picture just to make it more clear.
Can I run this "Saved Exports" through a macro or docmd ?

Re: TransferText .CSV format
that isn't right.

you can export either as fixed width, or as comma separated. you can give the resulting file any name you like.

the various arguments in the docmd.transfertext command specify how the resultant file is structured. you can use a specification file instead if you prefer.

In your code (eg as a result of a button click)
docmd.transfertext etc

Re: TransferText .CSV format
The problem is that the "specification file" does not include field name on first row.

Re: TransferText .CSV format
there is a check box for that on the specification.

Re: TransferText .CSV format
The check box, yes, but it doesn't keep the field name in the specifications and the csv is without field name on first row
