I am developing an Access application with Access as the front end and SQL Server as the back end database using an ADP file.
I create a table named tblUDLBrEmailROutMod.
It is comprised of 5 fields as follows:

Field Name                type                       size        
----------------------    -----------                ----------
CPS Acc Number        nvarchar                255
Escheat Y/N               varchar                  1
Item On Download      varchar                  1
Error                         varchar                  1
Date Lost                   datetime                8

When DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet executes, it generates an error:

Runtime error 3436
Failure Creating File

on attempting the "DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet" command.
Do you know how I can resolve this problem ?

ExportedFile = "\\UDLReports\DONOTESCHEAT_UDL" & "_" & intYearSP & "_" & Format(Now, "mmddhhnnss") & ".XLS"
DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acExport, 8, "tblUDLBrEmailROutMod", ExportedFile, True, ""
