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?

Try to recreate the specification giving it a simple name like "x".

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.....
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.
