    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.
