    How do you export a file with a unique file name

    I am attempting to use a macro to output a table in .csv format to a server each day. The macro has the ability to run each day but always saves under that same name. Is there a way to get a unique file name for each day it runs such as ..... File, File 1, File 2.
    Or even better File 09/25/06, File 09/26/06 etc....

    Thank you anyone for help!!

    VBA code for something like this would be:

    Sub DoTheExport()
        DoCmd.TransferText TransferType:=acExportDelim, TableName:="YourTable", _
            FileName:="c:\folder\subfolder\File " & Format(Now, "yyyy-mm-dd"), _
    End Sub

Please reply to this thread with any new information or opinions.
