export table to text file
How can I export table to text file which has more than 2 decimal places? I will appreciate your
Thank you for taking the time to report an issue.
What's wrong... Please write below.
What do you want to do?
* Understand exporting text files
* Export data to a text file
* Troubleshoot missing and incorrect values in a text file
I am trying to put the code to do this in a module, and I found the following code, but it returns the run time error 3625 "The text file specification "Export-T_GRS_Section_1_Part_B_Upload" does not exist. You cannot import, export or link using the specification".
Thank you in advance for reviewing this!

Id like to export a MS Acc 2007 Table into a txt file
To have the right formatting, I created a certain custom Export Specification.
But now I'd like to insert a custom text in the first line of my text file, followed by a blank space and then the name of the table.
In my case it's
ADD VALUELABELS "NameOfTable"
One line below there should be the normal text specified by Export Specification
But, into the LAST line, I would like to add custom text again, in my case:
Can you help me with some VBA Code or another solution to realize this
My current setup - Access 2007-2010, win7 64bit
I have a macro that does the following
- runs saved import to import excel file to table ("Table_Import")
- runs a make table query ("Query 1") to make new table ("Table 1")
- runs a make table query ("Query 2") to make new table ("Table 2")
- runs saved export to export "Table 2" as text file ("Export File").
My dilemma: Query 2 gives the user a prompt [Enter date] where users will enter the date of the records they want to include (ex: 7/10 or 7/10/12) in the final output. What I would like todo is have the name of the text "Export File" include the variable the user entered (ex: Export File_07.10.12).
Private Sub Command16_Click()
DoCmd.TransferText acExportDelim, "LBTxt Export Specification", "temp", "C:\Test", True </SPAN>
End Sub </SPAN>
and when I run it I get the following:
I get Run- time error '3027'
cannot update. Database or object is read-only.
I also get this on any table that I try. and I get it if I try maken a macro as well.
Now I should point out that the text file does not exist, but this should create it right?
if I manualy do an export I have no problem.
Neither the database or the table is not set to read only so I do not know.
Actually I cannot tell about the table but I did not set anything
Is it possible to output an Access table to have a certain character, let's say | as a field separator?
so if I were to view the text file after the output, it would look something like this:
John | Doe | 123 Main Street | Bank of America
Jane | Doe A. | 456 First Ave. West | Wamu
Tom | Smith | 50 South First St. | Citibank
If it's possible to export an Access table to a text file, with field separators, please post instructions
