VBA code to export an MS Access query to a text file

Hello Experts,

I need help with the VBA code to export a query run in access to a text file.  I have little experience with VBA and don't even have a clue where to start.  

I hope someone can point me in the right direction.

Thank you.

Assuming that your VBA code is in Access:

DoCmd.TransferText acExportDelim, "", "YourQueryName", "Filename with path", False, ""

Sorry I should have been a bit more specific.  The query contains 5 fields and I need to export them to a text file in the format below

ASE-bab                 111.42    J384229  17016.2126                        33299.82

There are predetermine spaces between the fields.  I want to create this output for EDI purposes.

Hope i was able to be more clearer.  

Thank you.

Do you know how to create specifications to import a fixed width file?

This is something you might have done if you imported files in a format similar to the one you seek to create.

Also, tell us on which version of Access you are working.
