Unanswered: Text import field specification problem 2003
When importing a fixed length text file using file import wizard, the wizard does not let you "specify information about each of the fields you are importing. Select fields in the area below" as the wizard states. No matter what field you click on it still refers to field1 in field options and that is the one you change. I have used 97 and 2000 for years and imported a lot of text files. Now I cannot get this wizard to work to do what it did in those versions. I have tried in on a number of computers with Office 2003 purchased from different sources. Has anyone else had this problem?
Thank you for taking the time to try it. I just did it again with two different files on two different computers and had the same result.
I parse the records at 10,20,30,40 and 50. I go to the field specifications page, click on fields 2 through 6 and it continues to display field1 under field name. And no matter what field is highlighted, any change I make to the field name changes the name of field1.
It is too bad that I cannot paste the screen cap to show you.
