I have a macro that runs a series of 20-25 queries, a function at the end.  What is the VBA code for simply creating a blank text file and copying to a folder.

File Path:  C\MyShare
File Name Name Must be:  accessdone.txt

My developer wrote a code that emails reports when my macro is done, he wants a file dropped in a specific folder on our network with a specific name.

Is this possible?

Add these lines to the bottom of your code.

 Dim fileNum As Long
Dim outputFile As String
    
fileNum = FreeFile 'Get the next free filehandle
Open "C:\MyShare\accessdone.txt" For Output As #fileNum 'open the file for writing
Close #fileNum 'close the output file.

Try
    Dim flsys
    Set flsys = CreateObject("scripting.filesystemobject")
    Set fl = flsys.createtextfile("C:\MyShare\accessdone.txt")
