try removing the fields you added, ONE at a time, then test the export, to find out which field is raising the error.

I added Final_BC1Chgn1-7, I added the ones that say BC1-4Chng1-7...

This is the portion that is giving me issues as I didn't touch the rest

strSQL = "SELECT DISTINCT Final_Table.ID, dbo_tblOrgLook_master.Analyst, dbo_tblOrgLook_master.Org, dbo_tblOrgLook_master.OrgName, dbo_tblOrgLook_master.CostCenter, dbo_tblOrgLook_master.Fund, dbo_tblOrgLook_master.PEC, dbo_tblOrgLook_master.ProgramName, Final_Table.[Line Item:], Final_Table.[Item Number:], Final_Table.[Total Initial:], Final_Table.BC1Chng1, Final_Table.BC1Chng2, Final_Table.BC1Chng3, Final_Table.BC1Chng4, Final_Table.BC1Chng5, Final_Table.BC1Chng6, Final_Table.BC1Chng7, Final_Table.TotalBC1,"

So it's when the string is too long for the row.  I am unfamiliar with SQL limitations.  The above statement is the orginal after the I started getting the error.  I put the fields in one by one..and I didn't get the error until I wrap around to the next line...

strSQL = strSQL & " dbo_tblOrgLook_master.PEC, dbo_tblOrgLook_master.ProgramName, Final_Table.[Line Item:],"
strSQL = strSQL & " Final_Table.[Item Number:], Final_Table.[Total Initial:], Final_Table.BC1Chng1, Final_Table.BC1Chng2,"
strSQL = strSQL & " Final_Table.BC1Chng3, Final_Table.BC1Chng4, Final_Table.BC1Chng5, Final_Table.BC1Chng6, Final_Table.BC1Chng7,"
strSQL = strSQL & " Final_Table.TotalBC1,Final_Table.BC2Chng2, Final_Table.BC2Chng3, Final_Table.BC2Chng4,"
strSQL = strSQL & " Final_Table.BC2Chng5, Final_Table.BC2Chng6, Final_Table.BC2Chng7, Final_Table.TotalBC2, Final_Table.BC3Chng1,"
strSQL = strSQL & " Final_Table.BC3Chng2, Final_Table.BC3Chng3, Final_Table.BC3Chng4, Final_Table.BC3Chng5, Final_Table.BC3Chng6,"
