Mr. Woll's solution was correct and very helpful, of course.

   Only upon carefully reading the help file for Table do I see mention of
"FieldSeparators", which was the trick needed. It would be nice if such an
option was found when one typed ?FieldSeparators into a notebook, or if
Options[Export] or Options[Table] inclued some mention of it!

            Best wishes,
