Hi CMARKSON,

You should be able to use:

Kill "c:\myfolder\mytextfile.txt"

Access has a Visual Basic running in the background (Macros). You can easily delete files with the correct commands. The >>kill "filename.txt"<< is the best but you also can write >>shell "del filename.txt"<<

this should do the job
