Is there a way to export an Access table to a tab delimited text file using vba?
I have the following line of code which creates the text file but it is comma delimited.

DoCmd.TransferText acExportDelim, , "PNLFile", "c:\temp\PNLFile.txt", False

To create a tab delimited file, you'll need to create the export once using the wizard so you can build an export spec.  Once the Export spec is built and saved (don't forget to give it a good name when you save it), you can reference it in the TransferText Method.
