    Import Problem (2000 Sp3)

    I've screwed up a form (Form3) so decided to pull in a copy from a backup mdb. Renamed the screwed up form so in my current MDB I now have
    Form1
    Form2
    xxx Form3

    When I try to do the import from the old version it lists 3 forms

    Form1
    Form2
    xxx Form3

    But if I open the old MDB there are 3 forms - Form1, Form2, Form3

    If I open the old MDB and try to do an import from the screwed up version again I can see Form1, Form2, Form3 instead of Form1, Form2 & xxx Form3

    So it looks like the import is showing what is in the currently open MDB rather than the one I'm trying to import from.

    I can recover by redoing some data updates to the old version but would really like to know what the ##### is going on.

    Anybody got any clues??

    Thanks

    **********************************

    Just had a small brainwave and decompiled / compressed both MDBs and tried again and it worked perfectly.

    Lucky in this instance it was clear what was going on but during testing the MDB happily let me import forms from itself into itself and created a new copy.

    Again anybody got any light to shine?

    Having done this myself more than once, I think when you specified the source db for the import, you specified the current db rather than the old version.

    that's what I thought first time - but after having tried it again several times, being extra careful what I was clicking on I'm sure that was not the cause.

    thanks anyhow
