The DoCmd OutputTo Visual Basic method gives you the ability to send an Access object to a file on your computer.  There are several destination formats from which to choose:

  • acFormatActiveXServer

  • acFormatHTML

  • acFormatIIS

  • acFormatRTF

  • acFormatTXT

  • acFormatXLS

In this Output Specifications example we will work with the acformattxt (text) output method. We output the data contained in our inventory table named "M_Inventory".  The output destination file is called Inventory.txt and is placed in your default directory at time of running the database example - usually the 'my documents' folder.

Here is the command line used in the Click event of the button on the form:

 DoCmd.OutputTo acOutputTable, "M_Inventory", acFormatTXT, "Inventory.txt"

You can read more about the DoCmd.OutputTo specification method in our learning section docmd programming tutorial for the outputto method.

The second example contained in this Access database download is the DoCmd TransferText method.  Here we use an Export Specification defined in the export text wizard.  Microsoft makes it hard to get to the specifications.  See our DoCmd.Transfertext tutorial page for more details.  And to learn more about creating the export specifications go here: Create Export Specs

In this example we transfer the text of the M_Inventory table into a comma separated values formatted file on the hard drive.  The file will be called inventory.csv and is placed in your document and settings/my documents folder, same as the folder in the 1st example above.

The transfertext command that is used is as follows:

 DoCmd.TransferText acExportDelim, "Inventory_Specs", "M_Inventory", "Inventory.csv"
