I have a form which has a button that does an export.  I have the code below.  When I click the button it attempts to export the form.  I actually need it to export a specific table called "master".  Any ideas on how to do this????


Private Sub ExportManualLookupLoadForm_Click()
    On Error GoTo ErrHandler
    DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdExport
    Exit Sub
    Select Case Err.Number
        Case 2501
            'Do nothing as cancel selected by user
            Resume ExitHandle
        Case Else
            MsgBox Err.Number & vbCrLf & Err.Description
            Resume ExitHandle
    End Select
End Sub

I went a different route using the docmd.transfer.  Thanks for pointing me to that!
