table to dbase tool not overwriting existing file

I have been trying to export a table to a .dbf file on a network and would like to use the Table to Dbase geoprocessing tool in ArcToolbox to automate this. However when I try to run this tool more than once it fails to overwrite the existing file. I looked under geoprocessing options to make sure the overwrite option is checked but it still puts a _1, _2, etc, at the end of the name. Is their any other place I need to look to make sure it overwrites the existing file.

I can do this manually by going to Data > Export, but would like to use this tool to automate it. If anybody can help point me in the right direction or give me some clues on how to accomplish this?
