I get the following error message when trying to link or import a DBF file in Access with a name greater than 8 filename length.
"The Microsoft Jet database engine could not find the object filename. Make sure the object exists and that you spell its name and the path name correctly."
I found this technical note on Microsofts website and it says that although this was not the case previously "changes to Jet security now require that you use the correct extension" - 8.3
Is there anyone out there that has found a work around to this? Can I remove the new Jet engine that is installed and revert to the old one where I know it used to let me link/import dbf files with a name greatert than 8 characters?
Thanks for your help.
