Hi,

I have a table in Access 2003 called "GL Balances"

I would like to export this on a form to the below location but naming the file with "Balances 03/03/2011" but i would like the date to change each day. So its like excel =WORKDAY(Today(),-1)

Location

G:\Asset Services MI\UnMatched Merit\Balances

Does anyone have the code to achieve this?

Thanks
Seamus

It is impossible to save file with "/" in name.
You can use "_" or "-" or "."

Dim path As String
path = "G:\Asset Services MI\UnMatched Merit\Balances\Balances "
path = path & Format(Now(), "mm_dd_yyyy.xls")
Then you can use this file name in export command.
