    What is the actual name of the file? And how are you trying to import it? Import wizard.

    If it is what I think it is, then the name is probably longer than 8 characters or has some 'illegal' characters in the name. Back in the day, a filename could not be more than 8 characters long, and some of the file types still require the 8 character maximum when you import a file of that type.

    To avoid this problem I would suggest renaming it to a very short name, 'abc.dbf'. So that you know it is not this issue.
