hello,
I get this error: the text file specification " file name " does not exist.
I have an old back up for this mdb that the transfer data works fine.
there are few hands that work on this application, it will be hard to trace all the changes that has been made on the application.

How can i see the  text file specification " file name " from the old application to create the same or move that one to the current application??

What version of Access? If 2003 or older then you can use File|Get External Data|Import|DatabaseName and select old db. |When the Import Objects window opens click Options>> in lower right side of window, check Import/Export specs checkbox. You're looking for MSysIMEXSpecs.
