I have a table with these fields:
email, payment_amount, currency

I need to output each record into a TAB delimited TEXT file. It seems Access97 only outputs into a Comma delimited text file.

I am sure this is easy to do...I am busy with other coding!

VB code please.

High points for a speedy solution!

SOTA,

Have you tried creating a specification that declares the tab as the delimiter?
