Where is the varible 'text1' initialized?  Try printing csvfilename and text1 for debug purposes.

Make sure that csvflname = text1(8) & ".csv" contains a valid name and not something like this ".csv"
Check the value of text1(8)

What is the value of #iFileNo ?

Perhaps you need to add something like this:

#iFileNo = freefile()
Open csvflname for output as #iFileNo

Just an observation no one picked up on, and something to watch out for in the future. In your original posted code, you declared csvflname as an integer, then assigned a text value to it. That's a no-no.
Fixing that and setting iFileNo with FreeFile would have made the code work (assuming text1(8) is a valid control on your form).
