    CSV Import (XP)

    I am trying to import a csv file that has fields with a comma in them, the file wraps this field in double quotes eg "Building 2,123 State St"

    Access splits this into two fields, is there a way to get the import to handle this data in the same way that Excel does? ie as one field.

    Make sure that you specify the double quote as Text Qualifier, see screenshot below.
