 Then with a bttn on a form    using the  'on click'  event copy the line below into the code window

Docmd.TransferText acExportDelim" ,"queryName"," C;/ExportedContacts.csv"


Can  you can specify what the criteria for your selection is    this would help if you need further assistance

Write a Macro choosing Action "TransferText". Or you can write VBA if you want more control 0n the code in a module like

sub exportdata()
DoCmd.TransferText TransferType:=acExportDelim, TableName:="YourQuery", FileName:="c:\YourFile.csv"
end sub

and call that exportdata function in a Macro.

Schedule the task (Macro) in the windows scheduler.
