Access query to export query to csv file with time and date via a module

I have a query called qry_export (SQL Query below if needed) that pulls up a simple query with 2 columns and I want to export the results to a csv file called

Export_MM_DD_YYYY.pft   where the MM DD YYYY is of course the date

The format of the csv file needs to be

"PORTFOLIO DESC", "BB TICKER"

I would like to do this via a module if possible. I have used the runsavedimportexport function in the past but in this case I need to put the current date into the file and that will not work for me.

Any ideas?

SQL Code for query

SELECT Bb_Alpha1.[PORTFOLIO DESC], Bb_Alpha1.[BB TICKER]
FROM Bb_Alpha1
WHERE (((Bb_Alpha1.[PORTFOLIO DESC]) Not Like "*test*") AND ((Bb_Alpha1.[BB TICKER]) Is Not Null));

first you need to create an Export Specification


1.right click on the table/query
2.select export > Text file
   click on Browse and locate the destination folder
3. (you can accept the proposed name or change it)
click Save, then click OK
4. In the export text wizard select the type (Delim Fixed) width
5. Follow the wizard, before clicking on Finish
     5a .Click Advanced
6. In the Export Specification dialog box Field Information List, correct any descrepancies

7. click save as, give the specification a name <-- this is the specification name that you will use in the command line below

'use this codes to export the query
dim csvFile as string
csvFile="Export_" & Format(Now(),"MM_DD_YYYY") & ".csv"

DoCmd.TransferText acExportDelim, "ExportSpecName", "NameOfQuery", "C:\folder\" & csvFile , True
