Save Excel File as a Tab Delimited File

How can I modify the code below to save the OutPutFileName file as a Tab Delimited File

Public Sub saveSheets(InputFileName as String,OutPutFileName as String)

  Dim xlApp As Object
  Dim xlBook As Object
  Dim xlSheet As Object
  Dim strOutputFileName

  Set xlApp = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
  Set xlBook = xlApp.Workbooks.Open(InputFileName)  ' Excel File
  For Each xlSheet In xlBook.Worksheets    
    xlSheet.SaveAs OutPutFileName   ' Needs to save as Tab Delimited File
  Next
  xlApp.Quit

End Sub

I goto the errors below

Set xlApp = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
  Set xlBook = xlApp.Workbooks.Open(InputFileName)
  For Each xlSheet In xlBook.Worksheets
    xlSheet.SaveAs OutPutFileName
    xlSheet.FileFormat = xlText


    xlSheet.SaveAs OutPutFileName  FileFormat:=xlText
    Syntax Error in VB6

    I then tried

    xlSheet.FileFormat = xlText
    xlSheet.SaveAs OutPutFileName
    Object doesn't support this property method in vb6

  Next
  xlApp.Quit

It looks like it's a WorkBook function


   ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs FileName:= OutPutFileName, FileFormat:=xlText
