The possible reason of  error of export attribute table in ArcMap in TXT fortmat

I try to export an attribute (and dbf) table from ArcMap to txt file, but the program gives "An error occurred exporting the table"

I checked all others types of exporting - all give the same, except only dbf (so I can export attribute table only in dbf format).
What I did wrong?
My main goal now ??? find how to export the attribute table to EXEL. Now I can???t do it. Also I can???t copy my table from ArcMap and put it to EXEL (I read this way as advice), I don???t know the reason, but it doesn???t work. Maybe this relates with this error that gives ArcMap?

Check whether there is any special character in the field name. Also let me know whether the attribute table belongs to a Feature class/Shape File/Annotation Feature class/Standalone table.

I had the same problem and found that if I changed the name of the export file by entering in any text it worked fine. The default name is "Export_Ouput.txt", I would change this to "nnnOutput.txt".
