Combine values from many table rows into one string value

Thank you for looking at my question,

I have embedded an image from an Access table that I want to query so that I end up with the options as a string. I want to end up with one line showing, in this case,
GenericItem, Posn, Item, Options showing VE01, 200, 3890602089,SKD0

Any help you can offer will be much appreciated

Are you attempting to export the table contents into a CSV file? Access provides both manual and programmatic tools for that:

If you are not exporting all the columns and rows of a table, then create a query that  selects the data you want and formats and sorts it if necessary.  Save the querydef.  Then use the querydef rather than the table in the TransferText method.

ALSO, if you want an export spec, you must export the query ONCE manually.  Save the export spec (press the advanced button to get to the option).  Then reference the export spec in the TransferText method.

Intellisense is your friend.  When you type DoCmd.TransferText (space) - you will get instructions on how to complete the instruction.
