    1. ‘acExport’ means we want to export the data
    2. ‘acSpreadsheetTypeExcel12Xml’ is the format we will export to (eg Excel)
    3. “tableName” needs to be the name of the table you want to export
    4. “filepath\filename.xlsx” is where you want to export and the name of the file you want to create
    5. “True” tells the export to include the fieldnames as a header row (“False” will exclude them)
