    Importing dBase tables

    First time I've tried this, and I am definitely a newbie at this stuff. I am importing a bunch of files from a dBase 'database'. The thing is complete, AFAIK, with the dbf, mdx, and ndx files available. I do NOT want to link the tables, as I am doing a 'makeover'.

    When I import some of the files, Access does it in one pass; i.e., File | Get | Import, click the table, done.

    On others, Access interrupts the import one or more times with a message like 'Could not find A#dbf', but if i click thru, the table is successfully imported.

    The questions: what is Access telling me with it's "could not find" message? What does 'success' mean in this case?

    Hi Peter,

    First, we need to know the version of Access you have and the version of dbase you are importing from.

    A2k.

    I've been importing the files as dBase IV files, having no clue as to what they really are. Neither does win2k; it says they are from an unknown application.
