    I can't speak for others but it really annoys me when people post the same question in more than one thread.  If others can't or don't want to answer your question the first time around then that's their prerogative, and a second thread is not going to change that.

    If you want a copy of the Access file then just use System.IO.File.Copy.  If you want to write the data to a flat file, like a CSV, then you'll need to read all the data from Access using ADO.NET and then use a StreamWriter to write to a text file.  I suggest you read up on the StreamWriter class in the help or on MSDN.
