    Exporting table into separate semicolon separated text files

    Hi All,

    I have a table that contains 2 columns; name, account, email.

    I am wondering if it is possible to export a separate semicolon separated text file that only includes the email address and name it name-account.txt

    example

    agent1 busco pres@busco.com
    agent1 busco cfo@busco.com
    agent2 inccorp pres@inccorp.com
    agent2 inccorp cfo@inccorp.com

    would create 2 text files at would look like this:

    agent1-busco.txt when opened it would contain pres.busco.com;cfo@busco.com



    agent2-inccorp.txt when opened it would contain pres@inccorp.com;cfo@inccorp.com

    Is this possible?

    Thanks in advance

    yes - go to the external data tab, select text and follow the prompts, one of them enables you to select the ; character as field deliminator

    Assuming you want to do that in VBA you need to create a new query and concatenate them using Allen's code (www.allenbrowne.com/func-concat.html) or the free sample from my site (http://forestbyte.com/vba-code-samples/ look for JoinFromArray) then you simply loop through that queries recordset and use Docmd.TransferText acExportDelim to create your csv files for each agent.
