My is TransferText exporting Text and Binary data?

P: n/a
I'm using a transferText command on a Query that is joining several
tables and pulling data off of a form. However all the fields from the
form are coming across as what I believe is Binary data. Am I missing
some sort of setting in the transferText function?

DoCmd.TransferText acExportDelim, , "qryDistributionListForExport",
strFileName

an example:

,"stringofNumbers","lastname","firstname","","1074 ",$375.00,35 00 37 00
31 00 31 00 ,39 00 ,"9025748725",1,,31 00 37 00 30 00 35 00 31 00 30 00
,"lastname, firstname ","stringofNumbers","Left3 stringofNumbers"

Should be:
00000001111
,"stringofNumbers","lastname","firstname","","1074 ",$375.00,35 00 37 00
31 00 31 00 ,39 00 ,"9025748725",1,,55555 ,"lastname, firstname
","stringofNumbers","Left3 stringofNumbers"
