Getting an error when trying to export a file

On a form I have a command button that when clicked is supposed to do this:

    MsgBox "This function will export the birthday list to your desktop."

    Dim strCSV As String

    DoCmd.TransferText acExportDelim, , "qryBirthdayList", strCSV & Environ("userProfile") & "\Desktop\" & "Birthday List " & Format(Now, "mm-dd-yyyy_hh-nn") & ".csv"

    MsgBox "File has been exported.  Please check your desktop."

Open in new window



The query (SQL) looks like:
SELECT [mail list].[LAST NAME], [mail list].[FIRST NAME], [mail list].DateOfBirth
FROM [mail list]
WHERE ((([mail list].DateOfBirth) Between [Forms]![frmBirthdayList]![txtStartDate] And [Forms]![frmBirthdayList]![txtEndDate]))
ORDER BY [mail list].[LAST NAME];

Open in new window


When I run the query it works fine.  But when I try to export I get this error:

"Cannot reference a table with a multi-valued field using an IN clause that refers to another database."

Sounds like you will have to remove the multi-valued field from the export.  To confirm, remove the multi-valued field from the query and then export.  If that solved the problem, you have your answer.

Or try to change your current query to a create-table-query.
Then export the created table.

Tried removing it.  Still didn't work.  

So did the make table method and it worked.
