I have run the hotfix from MS to allow me to import Excel data into Access. It now allows me to do most things but not format the columns coming in. This leads to problems on staff number columns that have leading zeros - used to be able to import them as text - now they come in as numbers. Does anyone know if a further update from MS is likely on this? I can get around the problem but wondered if anyone knew if this was going to be fixed soon. I cannot find it on the MS website.
