I am trying to export using an export spec using
DoCmd.TransferText acExportDelim, "SpecName", "MyTable", "c:\MyTable.dat"
I used this all the time in Access 97 but since I have upgraded to AC2000 I get the message
"Cannot update. Database or Object is read-only"

When I export manually (file, saveAs, export etc.) it works fine.

Any ideas?
