    Unanswered: Import Spec

    I don't have the option to create an import spec in my Access. Is it because I have a adp? Or am I missing something in my Access?

    Help.

    Re: Import Spec

    The only way I know of to create or edit an import spec is during an import.

    From the File menu select Get External Data. Pick the text file you wish to import and click the import button. (It must be *.txt, *.csv, *.tab, or *.asc to define an import spec) The Import Text Wizard will open. Click the Advanced... button to open the Import Specification dialog. Click the Save As button to give the spec a name so you can recall it later.

    The problem I have is that I don't have the "Advanced" button during the import process for me to create a spec for it. Any idea?

    Thanks

    I missed one really important detail in your original post. Your first thought was correct. Import and Export specs are not support in an Access project (.adp). Reference: Microsoft KB article 313895
