TransferText - Query as Table Parameter

P: 47
Hello everyone,

I have been looking around to see if a pre-defined query can be used as the table source argument in a transfertext call. I believe it is possible but I am getting an error that I left the table name argument blank.

Why is this happening?

This is the code I am using:

DoCmd.TransferText acExportDelim, , qryDetailQueryForExportingData, strFilePath & "" & strFileName

Try changing it to this:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. DoCmd.TransferText acExportDelim, , "qryDetailQueryForExportingData", strFilePath  & strFileName

Ok I changed it to what you suggested and now have the following error:

"Cannot update - Database or object is read-only."

I am sure that my Databse is not read-only...

Any ideas?

Are you entering an extension when you enter the filename?

Example when you're prompted for a filename try entering in "test.txt"
