Import huge CSV files into access
Posted on 2001-08-31
I have a macro that is supposed to import a huge csv file (more than 65536 lines) into an access table. The only records that it imports are those where only column A is populated i.e. blank records.
When I open up the CSV file and save it (so it is only 65536 records) the import works correctly.
The macro uses the "Transfer Text" command with an import specification to create an intermediate table (which is later deleted) and an intermediate text file (which is not deleted). It then uses an update query to update the real table.
Should I open up the csv file in wordpad and split it into two excel files?
Have you any other suggestions?
It would probably be easier if I e mailed some sample information
