Is it possible to retrieve .dbf and .cdx files into Access
tables? If so, how?  I was able to import the .dbf file, which
contained only the header information.  The .cdx files
contained the actual data, I was not able to retrieve.

You can only import the data formats that are displayed in the IMPORT option window. If you can get your data into any of these formats - you'll get what you want.

Good Luck
