Import text wizard problem in Access 2003

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....

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

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

Now it works.
