Are you really sure there is no way in access to "export" the data with the column names included? I haven't used access for quite some time, but I thought it had that sort of capability if you choose the right options.

I often plsqldeveloper. In that tool it is easy to query the table, select all the rows by clicking on the top-left cell, then right click to get all sorts of copy/save/export options. The CSV option saves the data including the column names.

I assume that most such tools have that sort of option if you look in the right place in the tool.
