    Cannot import Excel file (2003)

    I've opened a new, blank, mdb file and I'm trying to import, using the usual "Get External Data" menu command and clicking "next" until the end, the attached Excel file but I get the message, "Error during the attempt to import the file '<path>mgp.xls'. File not imported.
    Can any of you please try and import it into an mdb?

    Re: Cannot import Excel file (2003)

    Saving the workbook as HTML, then importing into Access succeeded partly. The next to last field was omitted. I cleared the table and changed the field type of the next to last field to text. I could then import into the existing table. See attached.
    Note: some fields have modified names.
