I keep getting the error: Run-time error 3625:  The text file specification "Myspecname" does not exist. You cannot import, export...
I have done this before and no problem, but after hours of expermentation, I'm still stuck with this error.   Perhaps some debug tips would be helpful.  
Thanks,
Brent
Dim txt_appdir As String
    txt_appdir = CurrentProject.Path
    DoCmd.TransferText acExportDelim, "Export-qa_StreetSync Export", "qa_StreetSync Export", (txt_appdir) & "qa_StreetSyncExport.txt"

I don't see how you can be getting that error message from this code since MySpecName is not part of the command.

Are you sure you are identifying the correct location for the error?

Ditto on what Pete posted...


<I have done this before and no problem>
With the exact same code...?

To be sure, check your spelling.
Export-qa_StreetSync Export
Export_qa_StreetSync Export
Export_qa_StreetSync_Export
Export qa StreetSync Export
...etc
..(This is why I only use letters and numbers, and no spaces in any of my names)

This was a version issue.2007 does not use the spec.  I don't remember how I found the answer, or where.   Thanks to those who replied.  I will try to be more attentive to responding and closing in future posts.
