MS Access VBA export issue

I am trying to export q query result set from MS access to CSV using VBA.  When I run the query, I get 397 rows.  When I run the export, I get nothing.  The export is creating the file, but there are no rows in the file.  The CSV export methods that I have tried are:

   
DoCmd.RunSavedImportExport "Export-MyQuery_CSV"
 
DoCmd.TransferText acExportDelim, , "MyQuery", "E:\path\path\filename.csv", True
   
DoCmd.OutputTo "MyQuery", "E:\path\path\filename", acFormatTXT, True

Funny thing is, when I export to XLS file format, I get the full query results.   All 397 rows.
The XLS export method I am using is:

     
DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acExport, acSpreadsheetTypeExcel9, "MyQuery", "E:\path\path\filename.xls", True

It is too bad that the 3rd party system that I need to export the data for is not capable of using XLS.  Must be CSV.

Help!
Thanks.

Please Re-read my post.  That was the first method that I tried.  :)

Anyway, I think I found the bug.  Has nothing to do with the method.  Working to confirm the solution now.

Issue was not code.  It was data.  Confusing at first, but I found it.  Gave other person credit anyway.
Your help has saved me hundreds of hours of internet surfing.
