A client has asked that I export a file in CSV format.  Fro some reason I've always exported in spreadsheet format.

I'm looking at the TransferText command as the solution.  It looks easy enough but I keep getting an error 3027, Cannot update.  Database or object is read only.

My data is pulled together in a query called qrySSPropInfo

My command
DoCmd.TransferText acExportDelim, , "qrySSPropInfo", wkFileLocandName

wkFileLocAnd Name is set above to C:\ExportSS\PropInfo"

I treid replacing the query name with a table name and go the same result.

What is the issue?  If I get this to work will it export in CSV format?

you will need an export specification to do this,

DoCmd.TransferText acExportDelim, "exportSpecification", "qrySSPropInfo", wkFileLocandName


 you need to create this export spec
