How To Automate an Export to CSV from an Access Query

I created a query that will produce a list of only the products that have price changes in effect. The query needs to be exported to a csv file and be uploaded to an FTP site. I would like to automate the exporting of the query - so that it will be less complicated for certain individuals.

I have tried creating a module "ExportQuery with the following code:

Function ExportQuery()
DoCmd.TransferText acExportDelim, , "[qryPriceList]", "[NewPrices].csv"

End Function

I get an error stating it cannot find qryPriceList - and to make sure it is spelled correctly. It is spelled correctly - so I am a little lost here - any help would be greatly appreciated

remove the square brackets and specify the full path to the csv file


DoCmd.TransferText acExportDelim, , "qryPriceList", "C:\YourFolderName\NewPrices.csv"

I am using 2007 but I will be implementing its use in 2003 - that does seem to work - is there a way I can get it to retain the column headers - because the program that is reading it - starts at the second row assuming report headers
