Try this

Dim expPath as string

expPath = me.txtOpenFile.text

DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet (acExport, acSpreadsheetTypeExcel7, "qryContractsLbbExport", expPath & "Example.xls", true)

Or something like that.

Let me know if this helps.

Thanks

Perhaps there's a "\" missing?
To be sure test:
IF right(me.txtOpenFile,1) = "\" then
  expPath = me.txtOpenFile
else
  expPath = me.txtOpenFile & "\"
endif

what error message where you given?

I can't see any reason for it not working?

Thanks

Here is a working example from my source code:

DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acExport, acSpreadsheetTypeExcel9, "qryABC", strSaveFile, True

Where strSaveFile =

"V:\Reports\" & Format(Date, "mm-dd-yy") & " " & Forms![frmPipelineSelect]![Combo6] & ".xls"

Hopefully you can take this and modify it to suit your needs.
