Transfer Text


I am running this code to export a table. it works fine but I want it to also bring out the headers as the first row of the csv file.
I cannot find a way to do it, as anyone and ideas please. Thanks

Sub ExportContacts()
DoCmd.TransferText acExportDelim, "ContactsNew Export", _
"Contacts", "I:\Trex\Database 2013\ContactsNew.csv"
End Sub

RE: Transfer Text

Add "True" for column headers:

CODE --> vba

Sub ExportContacts()
DoCmd.TransferText acExportDelim, "ContactsNew Export", _
"Contacts", "I:\Trex\Database 2013\ContactsNew.csv", True
End Sub 


RE: Transfer Text


Thanks for that worked perfectly.

RE: Transfer Text

In the IDE, if you highlight TransferText in your code and press F1, you will see the help file entry for the command, which tells about all the parameters for the command, including why adding True solves your problem
