Access 2003: Append table data to a text file with code - VBA

I need to append data from a table to a text file that has already been created with a DoCmd method.  Here is that
DoCmd.TransferText acExportFixed, "EXPORT_TABLE_Export_Specification", "EXPORT_TABLE", "C:IA_Subscriptions\Test.txt"

It works fine but now I want another line that appends data from another table to the text file.  Any help is greatly appreciated.

one of two ways perhaps?

1. Output to temp file, then append contents of temp file to main file

2. Open file, and write to it

create a union query

select * from EXPORT_TABLE
union all
select * from OTHERTable

saved the union query then use in the


DoCmd.TransferText acExportFixed, "EXPORT_TABLE_Export_Specification", "UnionQueryName", "C:IA_Subscriptions\Test.txt"

Method 1

Public Sub RunReport()

    Dim tempFile As Integer
    Dim mainFile As Integer
    Dim sLine As String
    Dim sTempFile As String
    Dim sMainFile As String
   
    sTempFile = "c:IA_Subscriptions\fred.txt"
    sMainFile = "C:IA_Subscriptions\Test.txt"
   
    DoCmd.TransferText acExportFixed, "EXPORT_TABLE_Export_Specification", "EXPORT_TABLE", sTempFile
   
    tempFile = FreeFile
    Open sTempFile For Input As #tempFile
   
    mainFile = FreeFile
    Open sMainFile For Append As #mainFile
   
    While Not EOF(tempFile)
        Line Input #tempFile, sLine
        Print #mainFile, sLine
    Wend
   
    Close #tempFile
    Close #mainFile
End Sub
