Import/Export data by type

Import/Export data by type

Import/Export data by type

I'm trying to export data from a table into a text file using Scripting.FileSystemObject in a VB module

I don't want to copy fields that are Identity field or Computed fields.


rs.open "SELECT * FROM SomeTable"...
buf = ""
FOR EACH fld IN rs.fields
   IF fld.type <> COMPUTED THEN
      IF fld.type <> IDENTITY THEN
         buf = buf & fld.name & vbtab
      END IF
FieldList = LEFT(buf, LEN(buf)-1)
Obviously my test for COMPUTED and IDENTITY won't work but can someone tell me what syntax to use for what I want to do?
Thank you.
