does this query "q01DOLI-WeaponsInUseExport" returns all ORGSHOP ?

- if it does, then you need a filter for each ORGSHOP for each export, by altering the querydef of your query  "q01DOLI-WeaponsInUseExport"  before exporting..

how many ORGSHOP do you have ?

yes it returns all orgshops  what i want it to do is export each org shop in the query to a different folder.  i was able to do this with a report  like this:

DoCmd.OpenReport "r01R14", acViewPreview, , "orgshop= """ & ORGSHOP & """", acHidden

DoCmd.OutputTo acReport, "r01R14", "PDF Format(*.pdf)", locationR14 & ("R14-" & ORGSHOP & "-" & getDate & "-" & Format(Now(), "hhnn") & ".pdf"), False, ""


I want to do this exact same thing but with a txt file instead of a report

oops didn't answer your last question I have 8 now, but it could change in the future  that's why I don't want to do a different query for each org shop

you can use another recordset to filter the query

dim orgRs as dao.recordset

set orgRs=currentdb.openrecordset("select distinct orgshop from TableName")

do until rsOrg.eof

'here you can change the querydef of query "q01DOLI-WeaponsInUseExport"

' export codes here

rsOrg.movenext
loop

Didn't feel you gave me an answer just led me in the right direction.  If you check the  file I uploaded it was a lot more than what you gave me to get it done.  I was toying with a B though
