advanced button import file

When I use the wizard to import a text file ... I click on advance and the application will keep running forever.. I have to end ... the file has 5 records.. I tried to import on anothers PC with access and I can use the advanced option... Was access loaded bad on my pc?? or do I need to turn something on ??

Hi there are two ways to resolve this. I have listed the first opriotn based on access 2003. If you are using a differenct version then let me lknow.
1. Install the imort wizard as an addin. Goto Tools > Addin> Addin Manager > Add new. You will then see 3 files ACWZLIB.MDE, ACWZMAIN.MDE and ACWZTOOL.MDE. Add all 3  and then restart access. You may should be abe able to use the advances import button.

2 Reinstalll access with all options selected. This will bring the import wizard that will allow you to use the advances settings.

No there are different version of Access  ie 97, 2000, 2002 or XP and then 2003. Try option one, but I am not too familar with 2002, I work with 97, 2000 and 2003. If not you can alway re install. ,
