How to export a blank column from an Access db

I am trying to export a .csv file from an Access database using a simple query.
I have the basic mechanism working, but I need to create the .csv files with 2 blank columns.  It is here that I have drawn a blank.
The Access query defines the format of the .csv file, but I can't set up a blank (or dummy) column in the query.

Has anyone any ideas?

Best regards

If u use query design to create your query, add two new fields like this

BlankCol1: ""
BlankCol2: ""

That looks like it.  I knew it would be simple (but so am I sometimes!!)
