Export Access 2010 table to csv with VBA

What's the easiest way in Access 2010 to export a table to a csv file.  I used the following:
    DoCmd.TransferText acExportDelim, , "Std Template RC", "D:\Documents and Settings\204064422\My Documents\GE\Testman Setup Interface\stdTemplate.rc"

But got a message that the table is read only and cannot be exported.  Does this happen when you have the table open on a subform?

Also, if I can get past that problem, will the command above export a .csv or tab delimited?

Thanks.

I see an extra comma after acExportDelim, which means that you feeding a blank to the tablename argument.  Try using named arguments instead, as in this example:

   DoCmd.TransferText transfertype:=acExportDelim, _
      tablename:="tblCustomers", _
      FileName:="D:\Documents\Examples\Export Delimited.csv", _
      hasfieldnames:=True
