I think you're missing some punctuation:

fname = "n:/temp/pete/" + Format(Date, "yyyymm") + " " & .Fields("table_name").Value.csv

Should be:

fname = "n:/temp/pete/" + Format(Date, "yyyymm") + " " & .Fields("table_name").Value & ".csv"

And your TransferText doesn't seem to have the right value for the File argument. I think it should be:

DoCmd.TransferText acExportDelim, , .Fields("table_name").Value, fName, True
