    Thank you in advance.
    I am using a TransferText method to run and save a query.
    It works fine except redundent spaces and quotation symbols(").

    ** Current Output **
    "23" , "633" , "9451"
    "02" , "3243" , "53262"
    ** Desired Output **
    23,633,9451
    02,3243,53262

    They say there are some cures for this problem.
    1. Please, advise me how to specify SpecificationName argument.
    2. How to create a schema.ini. File>>Export does not generate a schema file.
    Where can I find a text import/export wizard and how to use it?

    Thanks.

    You can define an "export specification" to use with the TransferText action
    in ACCESS. The specification tells ACCESS and Jet which delimiter you want
    and how to "format" text strings.

    You can create an Export Specification by beginning the export process
    manually (File | Export). When you've set the delimiter and text string
    format, then go to the last screen before you actually do the export, click
    the Advanced button at bottom left of window. Then save
    all the settings as a Specification (give it a name). You then can cancel
    the export.

    Use that specification name in the Specification argument of the
    TransferText macro action or VBA method.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
