Everytime I export a table to text, I can not make Access export more than 2 decimal places  

I need to export 6 decimal places    Does anyone have a solution to this?

As far as I know this cannot be done unless you select the "Export data with formatting and layout" option, which may give you more 'layout' than you really want.

I would suggest exporting to Excel and working with the data there, unless you have a unsurmountable reason to export to a text file.  Even if the data appears to have two digits in Excel, I believe the entire number is present and can be seen by adjusting the column formatting.

I had tried the "Export with fomatting and Layout" and yes you are correct in that it gives you more layout
