    Sorry, but your post isn't very specific. Are you asking *how* to locate a specific file or how to import an Excel file or what?

    LIke any software, you need to make sure that all applicable plug-ins, filters and 'wizards 'options are installed.
    If you can't do a certain basic function, chances are good that it's feature wasn't installed.

    IT is going to have to run a custom setup and make sure it selects the Excel converters as part of the installation.

    I once had same problem with Access 97. Reinstalling (more than once) did not fix the problem. Microsoft Knowledge Base Article <A target="_blank" HREF=http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q160954>Q160954</A> explains problem: "When you remove the Microsoft Access 97 Wizards, some of the file types that you can import, export, or link are removed also because they require wizards. When you run Setup to reinstall the Microsoft Access 97 Wizards, the Setup program restores the wizard files, but it does not re-create the registry keys that allow you to import, export, or link to certain file types. " (These are the Jet 3.5 ISAM keys.) Check article for recommended solutions. HTH.

    In addition to installing all of the Data components from the Office97 setup, you may also want to install the Data Access pack, located in the ValuPackDataAcc folder of the Office 97 disc.

    As I remember, installing the Data Access pack once corrected this same problem for me.
