Adding Today's Date to a File Name using TransferText

P: 1
Hi all

I've used Access for years but I'm not a programmer so I need some help...

I want to regularly transfer files into a folder but want them to be tagged with the date of transfer (today's date). I have tried the transfer spreadsheet anser but to no avail.

I hope to find a way of doing this without using code, but is there one? If I have to use code then how?

My extract is called a query named "download" and I have a tab delimited export spec called "Export Download".

I'm using Access 2000 with Windows XP.

Cheers

Mark

Create a Macro using TransferText option and use this as the filename in the Macro:

="[path]\download-" & Format(Date(),"mm-dd-yyyy")

example

="C:\My Documents\download-" & Format(Date(),"mm-dd-yyyy")
