the file specifiation does not exsist. --- DoCmd.TransferText

I have the following code:

 DoCmd.TransferText transferType:=acImportDelim, SpecificationName:="ImportWithholdingNoticeData", TableName:="RawData", FileName:=filepath, hasfieldnames:=True

when I run into I get an error that the text file specification does not exists even though it does.  Any ideas what the issue is?

Sounds like the acImportDelim was not compatible with the Import Specification.  
Perhaps it was made for a different file type or as an export spec.....
