    Import Wizard (2003)

    When importing an excel spreadsheet I was not able to select the type of field that I wanted a column to import as. Nor was I able to turn off the wizard to do it manually. I went to the help files and found that this is a known problem and there is an update file at the Customer Support Site. After spending too much time searching for what I needed I decided to ask the real experts. How do I fix this problem? I import different files reularly and have worked around this problem but I would like to solve it so I don't waste a lot of time doing extra steps. It seems intermittent.

    Which service pack of Access 2003 do you have (look at Help | About Microsoft Office Access)

    That is your Windows version (Win XP SP2). Could you find out your Access version by selecting Help | About in Access?

    That's correct. Strange, this bug is supposed to have been corrected in SP1 (see Description of the Access 2003 hotfix package: March 17, 2004). But you might contact Microsoft to see if they still provide the hotfix.
