Importing Text Files in Access 97

I have installed Access97 and the rest of Office Pro on an NT box.  Unfortunately Access does not have the option to import Text Files.  I have uninstalled Access and reinstalled Access making sure EVERY option including Data Access is installed.
I don't think the Value pack would help as this is something that should come with Access as standard.
Is it something to do with installable ISAM or any of my Jet 3.5 registry settings?
I have installed Access from the same CD on other PCs and not had this problem.
I would really appreciate a clear answer ASAP!
Can anyone help me please?

there is a "change options" button on the right side of the menu, if you click "Data access" and then click this button you should have the option to add different types of data access.

Don't shoot me if i'm wrong, i'm doing this out of my head...
goodluck

You should have the option to import a text file simply by :
File,Get external data and click your pull down arrow where it say's "files of type". Select textt files and browse to you file. A wizzard will help you through it.

i agree with jayru.  should work fine;  if your data
is delimited with "|" or ",", just follow the
wizard.  good luck

You need that data access pack.  (dataacc.exe) available from microsoft at http://www.microsoft.com 

Once you run this, you'll be fine.

(I believe SR-2 of Off97 takes care of this also)

The registry settings were messed up so I installed on another NT box then copied the relevant settings.  We were using SR2 but this glitch seems to happen from time to time.
Thanks obregoru.
Thanks 'others' too?!
