MS Access VBA exporting using Specification

Hello,

I created and saved a new specification to output a table to text which can be viewed inside the Saved Exports tab but the VBA returns an error message saying the text file specification "kkk" does not exist.  Can you please help?

I only changed the name of the "file specification" as the below code has been working for years however I can manually use the Specification.

Private Sub EXPORT_Click()
DoCmd.SetWarnings False
DoCmd.Hourglass True
Dim db As Database
Dim rs As Recordset
Dim qdf As String
qdf = DLookup("GLcount", "1f2_Admin_Exp_Table_StatsTot")
Set db = CurrentDb
    DoCmd.OpenQuery "1f6a_check_req_tbl_DELETE", acViewNormal, acEdit
    DoCmd.OpenQuery "1f6c_check_req_append_MD", acViewNormal, acEdit
    DoCmd.TransferText acExport, "Export-tblCk_Requests", "tblCk_Reqs", "S:\Finance\Accounting Operations\National Accounts\Consortium Pricing\PAR\nasco_ap_ck_md.txt", False, ""
    DoCmd.OpenQuery "QdelTblCK_regsAll", acViewNormal, acEdit
    DoCmd.OpenQuery "QappTblCK_regsAllmd", acViewNormal, acEdit
    DoCmd.OpenQuery "1f6a_check_req_tbl_DELETE", acViewNormal, acEdit
    DoCmd.OpenQuery "1f6b_check_req_append_DC", acViewNormal, acEdit
    DoCmd.TransferText acExport, "Export-tblCk_Requests", "tblCk_Reqs", "S:\Finance\Accounting Operations\National Accounts\Consortium Pricing\PAR\nasco_ap_ck_dc.txt", False, ""
    DoCmd.OpenQuery "QappTblCK_regsAlldc", acViewNormal, acEdit
DoCmd.Hourglass False
        MsgBox "The MD and DC files have been copied to the S drive, please verify the totals and copy them to the R drive!!"
DoCmd.SetWarnings True
End Sub


Thanks,

It worked; Thank you as I also learned that the two are separate functions.

In other words, if you want to use a predefined set of parameters "in VBA code", you must create an Import/Export Specification manually, then remember the name:
