I have a problem with the import text wizard in Access 2003 SP2

When I try to import a text file, I have this message:
"Microsoft Access has encountered a problem and needs to close"

This is a Access 97 convert in Access 2003. I changed nothing.
It was working before but now in 2003 it crash.

Microsoft say that SP2 fix this issu but it doesn't.

When I use the DoCmd.TransferText fonction with my import specification it works good, but manually it crash.

Any idea....

I found the problem, it was Access 97
We remove access 97 from it's default folder C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office
Reinstall in other folder C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office 97\Office
