If you have Access 95 or better, here's how:
1) Open the database and select the table to export
2) Click on 'File | SaveAs/Export'
3) In the 'SaveAs...' dialog, click on 'To an External File or Database'
4) Click on 'OK'
5) In the 'Save Table..' dialog, click on 'Save as type' and select 'Text Files...'
6) In the 'Export Text' wizard, click on the 'Advanced' button
7) In the 'Client Export Specification' dialog, enter a '~' in the 'Field Delimiter' text field.

From here you can set whatever other options you choose and follow the wizard's instructions.
