hmmm,...
< import specification to use for export data to a txt file>

it says here you are exporting to a text file, and using an import specification.
is this a typo?

you should be using an export specification

3. (you can accept the proposed name or change it)
click Save, then click OK
4. In the export text wizard select the type (Delim / Fixed width)
5. Follow the wizard, before clicking on Finish
     5a .Click Advanced
6. In the Export Specification dialog box Field Information List, correct any descrepancies
